Why not have both?

Yes, Dreamweaver is complicated, but when I load a page on my host server, it generally reacts as I would expect. The WordPress site kept giving me unexpected results. I think it was my host server that just wasn't ideal for WordPress templates and file structure that it requires. I've moved one of my domains to another host and I'll put my WP portfolio on a host that's better suited for WP. I'll go back to building my services site in DW. This way I'll have BOTH! I can work my services site in DW and have my portfolio on the WP host.

Is WordPress the answer?

trying to work within the constraints of WordPress is making me crazy. I probably should have stayed with Dreamweaver after my GoLive site was misbehaving. Now, I'm going through templates to see which ones have the most versatility and options. They are all kind of klugish. But now I realize my host isn't set up to save the pages and posts correctly. AAAARG!

Working on my new online portfolio

Decided to use Polaroid pictures on a light box as my metaphor for the presentation of my accomplishments in graphic design. The Agfa lupe and wax pencil are old friends of mine too.

Perhaps I'll even add an Xacto blade for the edginess I need.  But as I work in the HTML of the latest version of CS, I'm always looking to see how they decided to IMPROVE the programs by making them MORE complicated. Nothing is easy. Check out my site as I add pages from my colorful past. I'll travel down memory lane through my decades of projects and employers.
