OK, as you can tell I'm not very techie. However, what's wrong with flash and databases? Won't my images & stuff still end up displaying properly on my site?
I'm mainly looking at getting into something I can set up as a portfolio of my wife's great design work.
Point & click is way the market is going, whether in flash or other stuff. A futurist mate of mine said that things are heading in this direction...
It's like iWeb (drop and drag, no coding unless you want to) meets WordPress.
It is one of those hosting & software package deals and at $8 the hosting/software package could save me hundreds of hours of trying to bend wordpress to my needs... and failing.
If WordPress.com wants to really appeal to the non-technical market, they'd better watch some of these "drop and drag" guys because the software is booming along in leaps and bounds in a totally code-free way and people are flocking to it!
I love wordpress... from what I've seen so far. The movie tutorials are cool, the overall themes are just so much more attractive than anything I saw in Joomla etc.
But I bite when it comes to coding! I've been, on and off, trying to learn CSS all year (while mainly running a print design business).
I can feel the pull of square space above.... the wife and I are going to use their 14 day trial, and if we like it we'll be moving across soon, despite having 8 months left on our previous webhost contract.
I'll let you know sometime next week whether we made the move across.
