Website template and design providers


#1

My daughter wants to host some of her photography on a website and is currently looking www.wix.com as it’s free and gets some decent write ups

Are there any others she should be considering?


#2

How old is she? Could she author the whole thing using frontpage and get extra skills? You could buy her her own URL :blush:


#3

I used Mobirise for my company website, I didn’t need to go all out with it as I just wanted a basic layout with a contact form.

It’s very easy to use and learn.

https://mobirise.com/


#4

I use https://www.tumblr.com/ for my blog. It’s very easy to use and is free.


#5

If she’s remotely interested in the industry, I really wouldn’t recommend using Frontpage at all.

I’d probably recommend starting with something like https://webflow.com/ for building the site, then if you buy a domain I’ll host it for free for her.


#6

I think it’s more about getting her content out there as smartly and quickly as possible.

Fair enough.

Friend of mine is using Wordpress + Rhea as the theme: https://themeforest.net/item/rhea-for-photography-creative-portfolio/1187949

It’s a paid for theme but seems to work well as far as ease of customising from the back end.
