I am looking around for a good solution for a website for my mother. I've tried searching, but mostly get results for online parental controls and occasionally for talk about the defunct business sites of parents. I'm looking to set something up which would be sort of an artists portfolio site. More of a personal site than a business site.
I have never done anything like this (setting up a site for a parent, or anyone non-technical) so any tips and suggestions are more than welcome.
A nice, easy interface is essential, including image uploading and posting. I don't want any solution which requires uploading to some external site, or manual copying of links/IDs/etc. I'm looking for effortless.
Multiple accounts would be nice too, in case anything goes wrong, or a password is lost. And also maybe (but this is hardly a requirement) a sort of non-public section in case she wants to share with a limited group of people.
I saw Squarespace
, and thought it might be a good fit. Does anyone have any experience with them? The reason I thought this might be a good option is because everything seems to be rolled into one. It would for instance also would allow my mother to tweak the design without having to know what HTML or CSS is.
She has never had her own website. She does have a computer and sending email with links and photos is something she manages just fine, so she's not a technophobe, but I'm pretty sure a complex system would be a barrier to her using it.
Are there things I haven't mentioned that I should consider? All advice is welcome.
