Those on a budget (aren’t we all) will love some of the suggestions for free software, site designs and other tools at Design Vitality’s The Open Source Web Design Toolbox: 100 Tools, Resources, and Template Sources. There are some open source HTML, CSS, and image editing tools listed that might appeal to web designers and to teachers who need updated software in their teaching labs.
The tool I’m going to try out the minute I finish posting this is the WordPress Theme Generator. The options for a wordpress theme include setting body size, sidebar location, number of columns, menu layout, and colors. You end up with a WordPress theme zip file to install.
