Is Expressions Web Difficult to Use?

Expressions Web is a WYSIWYG editor and for most everyday updating functions such as text changes, is no more difficult to use than Microsoft Word®. We do, however, HIGHLY recommend purchasing the excellent instructional manual Microsoft Expression Web 4 by Jim Cheshire which is available from Amazon.com.  (see link lower left)

Basic Instructions / Training / Setup Tutorial $60

For those wanting the ability to update and modify their website more than just occasionally, we can provide you with the "basic" instructions on how to:

  • how to import your site using FTP and set up a local copy of your site on your home computer
  • use the local copy of your site to make the necessary changes / updates / edits you want to make
  • then, once you are satisfied, publish those changes back to the Web

This is a one hour Expressions Web tutorial with a member of the DataMax staff.  Cost is $60.

Expressions Web is a very powerful website development / editing tool and while simply looking at the Expressions Web editor might seem a bit scary at first, don't be overwhelmed.  Your website is already constructed and the process of simply editing a site (your site) which is already built and published on the Web is very, very simple.
