Learn HTML/CSS. Seriously.
I am currently using a WYSIWYG editor called sitebuilder and I like it, but I am looking for one that is still easy to use, but offers a bit more. For instance, I want to put links on the top and bottom of the site. Right now, sitebuilder does that, but they are the same, and I would like some to be different, etc.
Any way, if you could provide some suggestions, along with why you like the software, and of course a link to get it from, I appreciate it.
It can be free or paid. Doesn't matter.
Then practice, practice, practice!
You can go for Joomla, Word Press, Coffeecup, Web Studio software as per your need. Browse internet and get the details of the applications available and opt for the application that caters your needs.
Have you tried KompoZer?
I highly suggest as you use a WYSIWYG builder, look at the code and figure out what does what. IMO, it's easier to learn that way than by going through a book. Something about figuring things out on my own cements it in my head.
But KompoZer looks decent for a WYSIWYG editor. Just be careful with them and make sure you test the sites in multiple browsers. WYSIWYG editors are notorious for putting out bad code. Especially, uh, Microsoft Word.

IMO, if HTML and CSS dont sink in, maybe you are in the wrong field, and you should pay someone to make your site.
Plus, everything you find in the book stores or online only covers certain things, and most is in outdated software, etc.
maybe you are just googling the wrong things? check out net.tutsplus.com. there you can find tutorials on taking a site from a PSD to full CSS3/HTML valid code. there are a lot of useful things there from beginner to guru. you will also find things of different WYSIWYG editors, so, give it a check.
I just came across this tonight. It is offered via my website hostgator.com, but if you don't have them, you can find it by going to http://www.camelback.net/ Looks very promising, and definitely what I have been looking for. Will begin trying it out tonight. Take care.
i would use WordPress for start cause it gives you power to costumize everything as you want
