    best program for designing websites without learning code?
    had dreamweaver years ago. pretty complicated to use. also tried iweb which I didn't care for (its a little outdated now). rapidweaver was ok but not great.

    are they any other options? free would be nice, but id consider paid if the cost was reasonable.

    Depends on what you are trying to create. A lot of webhosts have their own website builder applications like Squarespace, Wordpress.com and so on. There are also tools (like Rapidweaver) that you would run locally and then upload to your site.

    I haven't seen many good free tools out there and long term, it helps to learn the underlying language so that you aren't stuck with a specific tool.

    If you have an older copy of iWeb, give that a shot. It still works with High Sierra. Although it will likely die when macOS goes 64 bit only.

    My suggestion would be WordPress. The reason is because I canít tell you how many times Iíve seen someone in the situation where the program they were using suddenly becomes unsupported. There goes the website.

    WordPress has more options than most people think, they just need to dig in a lot more to discover just how powerful it can be. The best part is, when or if your theme you either built or bought and customized, you can drop another theme over top and not lose your site.

    Just an opinion

    WordPress is the best option to go with. The number of features and plugins available in WordPress platform does not require coding knowledge to customize.

    He said he has it, and tried it (#1 post) with an added disgust comment!!!

    BTW: A good webpage developer told me years ago to not even consider using the "no coding" apps unless one also had a decent knowledge of coding, but I don't know if that info still applies these days.

    I would have thought that some apps should have advanced greatly by now, but maybe they also have a steep learning/usage curve.
