Sharon asks…

Making a website for school newspaper, design?

I am making a website for my high school newspaper. I need to know what I should do for design. I have heard the programs WordPress and Dreamweaver and Fireworks, but I’m not exactly sure how those work.

I don’t have a domain and cannot purchase one now.

If anyone could offer any suggestions on what program could make a very functional and outstanding website (remember, not a blog, a website, for a newspaper, so something that is like Cnn.com)

Any help is appreciated, thanks again!

Carol asks…

Word Press domain name question?

I want to sign up for a Word Press blog. When I started to sign up, it gave me the option of myname.wordpress.com OR myname.com for $17/year. I would like to own myname.com, but if I sign up through Word Press, will they own it or will I? If I want the ability to design a website and host it at myname.com in the future, will I be able to or will Word Press have rights over it?

Blog Design Journal answers:

The safest way is using a web host supporting wordpress. This way you have your own domain name. You can use it with wordpress or design your own website.

Use any of these free online RSS makers. I like feedburner.com.

Blog Design Journal answers:

Tweak your tag, here is the code example:

setting the border to 0 gets rid of it, allowing the page to seamlessly integrate with your main page. Possible values are 1 (yes) and 0 (no), you cannot give it a bigger border.
adds a margin to the sides of the framed page.
adds the margin to the top and bottom of the framed page. Added to any margins you’ve given the pages in their tags.
if the framed page is too big for the dimensions you’ve specified a scrollbar will appear. This attribute will stop this from happening.
like the image attribute, this will affect how the text around the frame aligns itself.
sets a margin of white space around the frame to the sides.
sets a white-space margin to the top and bottom.
