    There used to be a program called NetObjects Fusion. It is a visual Builder. It does still exist. Here is a site I did 15 years ago. Check out the view source if you want a good belly laugh. Worst code on the net. http://www.carvedhomesigns.com and yet, the darn site still makes good $$$. Weird.

    I have been asking the new owner to pony up and get a nice WP site for 10 years. Nope, he just sold the company 🙂

  9. David Bell Avatar

    Yup, new owner has not as of yet made any changes at all.

    The dar site has been coming up like number 1,2,3 for hand carved signs for 12 years.

    @Cape_Dave the classic comment hack for CSS takes me back

  12. David Bell Avatar

    Whoops, I had been asking the OLD owner, who is the one who sold it.

  13. David Bell Avatar

    At that time, circa 2000, that was the best I could manage. Did about 10 sites using NetObjects.

    Still a visual guy not a coder 🙂

    Have you told them their frugality is not conducive to your financial freedom? Haaa

  16. David Bell Avatar

    LOL, yes I have tried to impart that knowledge. With the traffic they get, and sales often upwards of 500-1000 they cold make some serious $$$. trouble is, someone has to actually build the signs 🙂

  17. David Bell Avatar

    LOL too funny! I am sure Addrea would agree wiht you 🙂

    Aren’t they teaching kids to program in schools now in the US?

  23. David Bell Avatar

    I pretty much make my living with BB, so it matters not to me that some do not agree. I know I am never going to take over the coding world but I like generating income doing wat I love which is WP, no matter which flavor or variotion of WP it si 🙂
