    Wondering what's best to set up a better than amateur to pro level looking website with ability to have some pictures/thumbnails and a preview youtube window which could potentially showcase a few "latest" vids for an account

    Seems like the builders for Squarespace and Wix can offer most of this but wondering if there's a better/cheaper alternative to this ?

    I'm not sure many people here would really use either of the WYSIWYG style creators but I know they've been mentioned a few times that I've seen so work a search.

    If you want to do it yourself with little or no experience I am sure they'll be up for the job but you do pay a premium for it and I'm guessing it's limited with what can be done.

    A few more details about what the website will do and what your aim is will help people give more advice.

    I would do it myself but I don't have the time for the foreseeable future to learn coding and wordpress to get it to the standards I could with WYSIWYG, I just want a photography portofolio with different pages for different genres of photography, mainly with thumbnails that will open into a gallery and a window on the homepage that automatically updates with most recent (or a couple) youtube vids for a specific account, I know it's possible to do it manually but if I can automate that would be a bonus

    I know a lot of togs use squarespace, as for the youtube auto update, I'd honestly pop their support people a message and ask. "Before i invest in your platform, can it do X, Y & Z..." They'll soon give you a response if it means a sale :)
