I need to produce another site, but the requirements are beyond my hand cod
ing ability. Have just installed bluefish only to find it's text mode only!
No use to me. It looks like it does lots of things, 95% of which I've no i
dea what they are. What software would be good for this job? I run linux he
re, no [modern] windows.

Our daughter used Serifs 'Web plus' (bought for about 15 quid or
summat) and did the whole web presence thing herself (registered her
domain name, created the site and uploaded it and arranged the email
I think the WebPlus functionality has been (was, discontinued now I
understand) incorporated in PagePlus ('Export to Web'?):
So, if you can't find a suitable Linux app, PPX9 is supported on
XP-W10 (depending on how old your Windows is) as covered in the manual
Maybe it might be worth a look?
Or there is a free starter version:

It turns out the Mint 17 repository lacks kompozero or screem. Vi it has but it's just a text editor.
http://www.kompozer.net/download has a variety of linux links, but frankly I've no idea which to download or what to do with it. I did learn from win98 that when you know an OS backwards, it's obsolete.
Google offers files that generate:
Error: wrong architecture 'amd64' - which this isn't. Don't you love computers.

Welcome to Linux for non geeks. With Windows you generally download
one file and it will install on anything from XP to W10, 32 or 64 bit.
I'm not sure I've ever known any OS backwards but generally well
enough to do most of what I need fairly easily. Very little of what I
have learned whilst dealing with computers over 30+ helped me at all
with Linux (inc CPM, Netware and Apple OS / OSX).
Nice. I installed a fancy nVidia CLI card on Ubuntu 17 for someone the
other day and it too kicked off about 32 bit support (on the 64 bit
machine) but a reboot or two seemed to have it working ok.
Love, no. Have been involved with for a long time and gave me a good
living for much of that time, yes. ;-)
Have you tried the stuff here for Kompozer OOI? (Not that there is any
guarantee anything not specifically for your Distro, version and even
Desktop Environment would work on your particular Linux install ...
I just copy and paste stuff and keep my fingers crossed. ;-)

I would be interested to hear how you get on for when other people ask me
about web design (not something I've ever done).
I tried to install it here for you when it was first mentioned here (I
have installed it previously somewhere, possibly on Windows) but failed
at the first hurdle in reminding myself if I was running 32 or 64 bit. I
opened Sysinfo but the only screen that wouldn't open was the General one
(causing Sysinfo to shut down when I tried).
Software Centre wouldn't open (still won't) and Konpozer doesn't appear
in Synaptic (so much for these magical repositories). ;-(
So I gave up, too much like hard work for a system that is supposed to
work for me and make my life easier!

I don't know what the site is going to be for, but a word of warning the EU
is moving toward only accessible designs these days, so if its possibly
goiing to involve goods or services, then here in the UK it could fall foul
of the e Equalities act goods and services if, for example blind persons
with a screenreader cannot use it from the keyboard. I have been told a lot
of the web creation software does not always comply with this, I don't know
what the situation is in Linux though.
