Moving away from Frontpage

  belayer 17:57 04 Nov 2010

I have been managing my small business website for many years using Frontpage, and the time has come to upgrade my 10 year old PC and get new software (Windows and Office).

As Frontpage is no longer available, what do ex-Frontpage users use? I need something that is as simple as Frontpage that I can use intuitively like a word processor.

Any suggestions?

They use Expression Web.

I endorse the comments made by fourm member.

Cheers, many thanks for that, that is very helpful as I had never even heard of it, I will go and look for it.

Can an existing Front Page designed web be imported into 'Expression Web'? My current site is in need of update but consists of 100+ pages and I don't feel like starting from scratch.

Something for me to look into - I just assumed when Microsoft binned FrontPage (which i've never really liked but continued to use since 1999) that i would need to start afresh.

I also wanted an alternative to Front Page and did consider Expression Web but given the limited use to which I would put the programme thought it to expensive. Eventually settled on Serifs WebPlus X4 and so far have found it easy to use and capable of handling anything I want to do.

Can you get it free?
Thanks David
