    Ok guys I have a 312k facebook page and want to build a website for it. Someone had made me a Wordpress website, but it was deleted recently.

    I was wondering if there is any WYIWYG website builder where it is easy to design, but also has features that will allow me to post livestreams, memes (w/ people voting/commenting on them) and also allow me to easily add new posts, the way Wordpress does. I have tried sites like Wix, and Weebly but they are not what I am looking for. Any help would be appreciated

    Bro, just use Wordpress. The trick is to buy hosting, and create a Wordpress site on that; Rather than building one on the Wordpress website. Get a proper domain name, and set things up nicely. If you have a fan page with 313,000 people, it is good to invest a buck or two. If you want to make serious money, do not go the cheap-o way.

    I do have a domain name and a host. I had a website before that was made by my friend but it was deleted by a freelancer that I had hired. I would use wordpress but I'm not good with code

    You must be lost. I would recommend that you watch a few WordPress beginner videos. The joy about WordPress is that it requires no code.

    As previously mentioned by other member, simply use WordPress as it's easy to work with and fully customizable and if you some funds to invest, I'd suggest that you find a WordPress developer to build a custom WordPress Theme/Site for you. If you have a fan page with this many fans and are looking to make good money, then you'll want to invest some money into a good quality site that will convert well for you while providing a good experience for your users.

    Like other members i will also suggest you to go for WORDPRESS , just search some good videos from youtube explaining how to work on wordpress . Install a free theme , various plugins according to your choice and to the need of the website.
    Certainly, you will get good results.

    Wordpress is a resource hog and is prone to automated spiders trying to break into the administrator panel but it is the best of all evils if you do not know how to program. Also, if your 300k fan page is highly engaged learn about dedicated hosting as you will burn up your shared account pretty quick per post. Be prepared for headaches but if you are passionate about your project you will get through it. Good luck!

    YOU DON'T NEED TO KNOW CODE. That's the point of the Wordpress suggestions from everyone.

    Do you need to start learning some basics? ABSOLUTELY.
    Can you throw up a site/blog in less than an hour? Yup, just find a theme.
    Is there a more supported platform out there right now? HELL NO.

    If you hate techy crap like I do, then TRUST me go with Wordpress.

    At the end of the day though, it's really not about this platform , or that platform, but rather what exactly you need to accomplish. Today there are so many templates/themes/plugins out there that more than half the work is already done for you.

    All of the features and things you mentioned you need there are plugins that will easily and quickly do within WP.

    If this is more an issue of time vs. money thing , then hire someone to build this for you.

    **If you don't take the time to learn the basics though, you will ALWAYS be dependent on some clown trying to screw you over on something you could easily do yourself.

    If you don't have the money to take a course online (or offline depending on where you live...) do the following:

    Start here:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Lessons
    Find a forum on html,wordpress, basics etc.
    Go to Youtube and learn for free!


    Say you don't know how to code? (and you actually want to learn...)
    http://www.codecademy.com/
    http://thecodeplayer.com/
    https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/
    http://coderace.me/#



    Today there is NO excuse for not learning virtually anything that exists out there.

    The information that was kept to so few is now available to the masses.

    Find a mentor and/or some internet buddies you can grow and share info. with and...

    GET BUSY!

    Cheers!:cool:
