Hello all. New here and new to web design, so please be kind. Let me give you a little background on myself. I have been working with basic web design for about 6 years now. My standard mode is design and slice in Photoshop, import in Front Page and make it work. I understand this is a crude way of doing it, but it has worked well for the past several years. My clients are new business owners and I charge usually less than $500 for everything. I do this solely on the side. However, I really need to catch up with the times. I have no plans to quit my job, but I would like to continue to do this on the side. With that being said, here I am.
I have updated to GoDaddy’s ultimate hosting plan and I am going to redesign my site using WordPress (probably this theme: 35896). My current sites, I have 3, have all been designed and uploaded in Microsoft Expression Web. In talking with godaddy – they said I should not attempt to use FP extension and WordPress on the same server. Given that, how would you proceed with uploading the 3 sites without breaking everything? I was thinking of opening the sites in DreamWeaver CS4 and uploading that way, but wasn’t sure.
Does this make sense? At this time, I am not going to redo the 3 sites I have already created. Future re-designs will be using DreamWeaver. I really appreciate any and all advice.
Thanks – Erik
