Professional Publishing Platform VS using Dreamweaver

Movabletype.org

Runs on a Web server where you use it to set up and add content to your blog and build the blog pages that visitors see over the Internet. You install the Movable Type software on the Web server. Once Movable Type is installed, you use a Web browser on your personal computer to connect to Movable Type and make changes to your blog.

Would you use such a software to run your website (instead of DreamWeaver)? Why or Why not?

No, I wouldn't use anything like that.

I prefer to develop everything my self (that includes Content Management systems/publishing platforms etc.)

That's the only way for me to develop websites just as I want them to be.

Depends on the style of your site.

Blogs only work if you make lots of content frequently.
Otherwise a bog standard html page is better.

blogs are one of the worst structures if you want to use adsense as well, or in some cases for the serps.

Movable Type is beautiful software. I use it on three sites and over the summer I intend to convert another site to use it.

A note of caution: Not every hosting plan provides the right kind of database software to function with MT. Make very sure you understand what MT requires and be certain that the database on your server is compatible before you try to install MT.

Don't ask me how I know that ...

its not a blog; its an entertainment website. I actually want to use it on one of my website featuring images, videos, content and in general entertainment.

i will also be embedding videos i.e. youtube

dreamweaver and moveable type are not really equivalent.
you are comparing wrenches to screwdrivers.

I never used the free version; I went straight to the paid version.

For me it was worth the price to be able to get rid of the link to MT required in the free version.

I wouldn't call myself a power user, but big things I like about MT are that I have total control of the URLs, and I can use my own templates that are exactly customized to suit my style of SEO.

Buckworks,

Are you aware of any e-commerce plugins for MT4 ?

I'm using MT4 commercial version to administer a site for a retailer friend of mine. Eventually the retailer wants to be able to sell product on the site.
