As no-one has posted about NVU for a while i thought i'd post my thoughts. As a teacher i wanted to set up a site for my students. I have found the portability very useful and wish to thank John Haller for his hard work. I add bits to pages at work and home, finding the combination of portable browser (with all my bookmarks) and NVU a godsend. I use eMindMaps for some of the layout - NVU for editing and publishing. [I use the firefox ftp for posting some files and have had no problems. The pluggin seems much better than the other ftp client i tried . . . but then i don't have the computing knowledge to know its pitfalls if there are any]. I wouldn't have progressed as far as i have in a couple of weeks if it hadn't been for this. When completed i'll ask for feedback!
I've just learnt from reading one or two sites. eMindMaps is a great tool for ease of setting up. One thing i have not mastered and would be grateful for advice - how can one put in a password in order to limit access to certain parts of a site? In my case its student names.
