My company is in desperate need of a new website. I've a had few problems with developers (not doing what I asked them to do) and looked at the CMS-type things (Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal, Concrete5 etc) and found them all to be unspeakably awful and completely unusable, so they are absolutely not an option under any circumstances (please don't anyone recommend I use any of them).
Therefore, the best option is to either get a new developer who will do what I ask them to do, or do it myself. Getting a developer will cost money that I don't have, so I am considering the DIY route. This basically means I will need to teach myself Dreamweaver and buy myself a copy. But as Dreamweaver costs a few hundred quid for the full version, add a further few hundred for the cost of a training course and you are getting towards the cost of paying a developer.
I've seen there are books available like 'Dreamweaver for Dummies' and 'Teach Yourself Visually Dreamweaver', has anyone used these or any others ? Are they any good ?
