I am a long time CC user, and ambassador, though I have not been active here for many years. Probably not since around 2015 or so. Yep, that long.
I have always loved CC software and the community here, but as some of the old timers can tell you, and I do see some familiar names, I have never been a coder. Simply not interested. I was an avide VSD user till it was discontinued. Ah, progress. I do realize that Site Designer says 'no coding' but when I looked into it and started reading about CSS and image tags and class ID, my eyes just glazed over. I woke up hours later feeling I was the end result of an alien abduction. Lost time and all that.
So, I moved in a different direction. Got out of the website business and went into 3D graphics instead. Still doing that but starting to slow down. I worked over the road for over 26 years while working on graphics but am tied down at home now. Disabled and chained to my computer. So, here I go back to websites.
Over the last couple of years I have gone through many websites never really finding exactly what I wanted. The visual designers that are out today, and there are only a couple, are really not that good and not what I am looking for. I have kept, almost current, with Site Designer and I'm actually downloading the latest version as I type this. I gave it a look a couple of weeks ago and found that I must have picked up a nugget here and there over the years because it'almost' makes sense to me now.
So I'm back. I'm going to give it a try and see what happens. I have the tutorial downloaded and will go through that first. I tried already but needed the current version for the templates I wanted to work with. My ultimate goal is to create an ecommerce website. We'll see . . .
I do want to apologize for being away so long. I also want to apologize for all the questions I'm about to ask! This used to be an awesome community and I'm sure that hasn't changed much. But I still am not a 'real' coder so I'm sure it's not going to take long for my eyes to glaze over again. I just hope I can recover faster and move forward this time. With your help.
Anyway, I'll try and pop in at least once a day, maybe more, as I try to wrap my head around the Site Designer. i just hope that if I ask a lot of questions that have been asked before that you'll have patience with me. Let me know if I go to far off the deep end.
Ask me anything you like, I'm pretty much gonna do the same. And now it's time to go update Site Designer and dive in! Wish me luck!
