google page creator.

This is the beginning of my holiday, I'm bored. And lazy.

So I started a simple project, playing with google page creator. It is a product from google that targets, ordinary people. So since I pretty much free anyway, so i created a website for the Chinese community in the College. Here, any sorry for the site for being a bit lame.

The thing is, this project is really target ordinary people, so basic stuff is easy. It features anWYSIWYG editor to edit you page. A set of template, to make page nice. To spice things up, google provide gadget. Which is the same thing you see in igoogle. It does make things easy for most, but sometime it just look strange.

What sucks, doing stuff beyond basic is an hassle, for one you only see html of part of the pages. Not the whole page. Some have issue with javascript. but there is work around. And like most free hosting like geocities. There is no scripting support, so no perl, php or python. And there is a set of template, but it is limited.

The verdict, doing the basic stuff is good. With a WYSIWYG web page editor, how hard could that be. But doing stuff beyond basic is a hassle. Maybe it is not a bad idea to check for other options.
