Rebuilding Old ebsite HTML Editor Questions
Already purchased HTML 15 but not downloaded yet.
Some questions ( there probably will be lots more)
1. Is HTML Editor my best option? I can still switch if necessary.
2. Are there any addons that I should start using during development? fro example "Forms"
3. Is it possible for two persons to develop the website on different computers. Not at the same time but different locations, one on Windows 10, one on Windows 7.
Any suggestions, tips will be greatly appreciated
Thanks in advance
If however, you want to take advantage of the newly released responsive programmes that Coffeecup has been launching over the last 2-3 years, you could take a look at Responsive layout maker, Responsive Site designer, Responsive Foundation Framer of Responsive Bootstrap Builder (the order in which they are mentioned is the sequence of their being launched, no preference). You can download trials for playing with. You may find that the way of thinking is somewhat different compared with plain coding. There will always be someone here who will be able to answer you querstions.
2. Coffeecup does not operate with 'add-ons', they have standalone programmes. There is a Responsive form builder, a responsive slide show creator, a responsive menu builder, just to mention some.
3. In theory it is possible for more than one person to edit a site, but practically you wll be exposing yourself to all sorts of problems. If you and someone else want to have a go at it, it would be best to use a programme like the HTML Editor. Your friend also needs a similar, straight-forward programme, but not necessarily the same one. And every time one of you wants to edit something, you first need to download the whole site in case there has been a change since you last were working on it.
In case of one of the responsive progs, you both need the same programme and the same version of it. And each of those programmes has its own file system, which then has to be uploaded, so that the other person can find and download it before starting.
We have actually been doing some of this in the forums, check especially the RSD and RFF forums to see some examples. Users have posted their master file, and some of us have helped by editing some bits of it.
As mentioned above, your best bet is to use one of the new responsive programs from Coffeecup.
Both Foundation and Bootstrap are great choices and lots of websites are created using them.
I personally use many methods to create websites, including Coffeecup's RSD,RFF, and RBB and HTML editor from Coffeecup; also use Sublime editor and Wordpress.
Bootstrap is used on the most websites and has a huge following on the internet with lots of videos and examples.
Saving your website files to a shared folder on a cloud would allow both people to use it.
Nice to see another Canadian in the forum.
This will keep you from over-writing each other's work and allow you to revert to a previous version if something goes wonky.
As for the Editor, you can build responsive sites within it using your preferred grid or frame work. You can also create a responsive grid/layout in Resp. Site Designer, then import it into the Editor to finish it off, or – if you have an interest in Foundation or Bootstrap (frame works), get going quickly with one of the CC apps to ease the process.
Unfortunately I have not kept pace with the latest developments. what are the major differences between Editor and Responsive Site Designer?
The Responsive site designer uses a grid system developed by Coffeecup called 'coffeegrinder'. It works the same way as the two other ones mentioned. You can use it and just drag and drop contents, with minimal coding. Your project is saved with the extension .rsd and can only be opened in RSD. When you have done your work, you export the project to normal html/css/js files. After it has been exported, you can edit the files in the HTML Editor, but you will not be able to take it back into RSD.
Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
