I've used and loved Site Designer for many years, most successfully before CSS and "responsive" sites arrived as I created sites for family and friends. I started a business venture, so I took a 10 year "break" and now find using Site Designer to be too advanced for a novice. Since I have all products, the forest is even darker. Questions like "What is CSS, why do I want to use it, where do I learn how to use it?" etc. Site Designer is equally challenging ... what other CC products (responsive layout maker, forms designer, etc.) work with Site Designer - and/or "stand alone", "only support HTML Editor", etc.

Maybe, instead of expanding Coffee Cup College for non-CC products like CSS, there could be references to other locations ... and for CC products, a bit more detail for those of us who are not professional web designers to enable a "get started" or "novice" area. Thanks.

Hi Geek,
I know it may seem overwhelming. If you open a template and try altering it you can figure out how SD works. Don't look at everything it does as that makes it look so hard. Focus on one task at a time. There are several users on here that will help you if you have any questions.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

This is a site I built for my work.(RSD)
This is a site I built for use in my job.(HTML Editor)
This is my personal site used for testing and as an easy way to share photos.(RLM imported to RSD)
