I’ve been an amateur Dreamweaver Developer for many years and quit when they went to a monthly subscription. My last purchase was the CS6 Creative Suite. I’ve been looking for a replacement for years so hoping PineGrow might be it. If I choose this, much hand-holding will be required !
We are an embracing community - holding hands is what we do!
A lot of resources are available on the Pinegrow channel on youtube and a community if you need more help.
All you need is dedication and you will be deploying websites and more in no time.
I was with Dreamweaver from Day One and followed it through onto the Cloud. Good program but a tad expensive for my purposes. Pinegrow is better, I think. A bit more WYSIWYG and I like the work platform which really comes into its own on a large screen.
I too am a refugee from Dreamweaver. I am NOT a code-head or a web developer, but I am in charge of our companies web site - so I had to dive right in.
While I am no where as talented as many here in the forums, as a self-taught PGer I have found that using ATOM with PineGrow makes up for many of the missing site management tools that Dreamweaver does so well.
ATOM fills the gaps for a global spellchecker, update links site-wide, clean-up code, WW3 validation etc. While you will need to install a few add-ons, I think it is worth the time. I have just scratched the surface of what it can do.
