This Adobe seems hard for a beginner. Anybody out there?
even someone who can point me to a phone number for Adobe staff. I haven't found one, or an email, anywhere on their site.
What Adobe Product?
thanks, 'Jorma', for replying. I really need to SPEAK with someone COMPUTER AND WEBSITE SAVVY, as I choose these Adobe people to give me advice and help in creating and designing a WEB SITE. It's a very useful public site. It's about doing our bit of caring for the Biosphere from the safety of our homes. But Adobe seems to hide beneath its professionality and not dare give a single way for customers to connect & enquire about their services.
I guess that means I'm using this forum as a sort of 'cris de coeur' email to understand Adobe's function and see if they can help me. If not perhaps YOU know someone highly competent in web design, but who is also interested in our Biosphere crisis and how to solve it. I've worked 25 years on that.
Thanks. George Thomas.

I'll move this forum thread to a forum that is for an Adobe product that is more focused on website design. Keep in mind that while Adobe provides products that are powerful and help create many things, they are still a software company and not necessarily in the business of helping you on the creative/professional services side of things. Much like Microsoft will supply you with the Office suite, but they don't necessarily teach you to use them.
If you are looking to build a website, Muse and Dreamweaver are both good products. If you would like to create a website using visual layout tools and not get into coding, Muse is a great option. Here's a tutorial to get you started: How to create a website with Adobe Muse | Adobe Muse CC tutorials. All Muse tutorials are available here: Adobe Muse CC tutorials | Learn how to use Adobe Muse CC.
If you are comfortable, or would like to learn, HTML and CSS, Dreamweaver is a great tool. Here's a tutorial to get you started with Dreamweaver: Learn how to make and style a responsive web page in Dreamweaver | Adobe Dreamweaver CC tutorials. All Dreamweaver tutorials are available here: Dreamweaver CC tutorials | Learn how to use Dreamweaver CC - you could start with the Get Started tab to learn the basics, then move on to the other tabs to extend your knowledge of the product.
I hope this helps!
Thankyou Maile, really appreciated. I'm SO at sea with all this. Yet I have years of research and work focussed on Earth recovery theme. Want to help me further? Anyone else. A small team who are dedicated could change things considerably. Reply here if anyone has something heartfelt and professional to offer. I don't know how else to ask you to contact me. Perhaps Maile can let me know if anyone replies as I'll probably lose this page. Sorry to be such a duffer. I wasn't born in the age of computers but I know a lot about green lifestyles and how to protect the biosphere.
I guess I'm replying to myself. But at least someone might see it. Maybe even Jorma or Maile.
I keep get someones voice advertising on my computer. But I've no idea where it comes from nor how to turn them off. Any ideas anyone? My best hope is to speak to someone on my hardly used business phone, 301 614 7471. Thanks, George. Founder of the Earth Protection Initiative. PS. I've never used the net as my main place of operation up till now. But I need help in order to start it.
IVE spent 24 hours trying to get someone's attention but there's no email for those who were trying to help me - as far as I can see.
IS ANYBODY OUT THERE? MY PHONE IS 310 614 7471. Before there were 2 people who responded 9see above) but they've disappeared.
Thanks to anyone who can get me out of this stuck place on my computer all thanks apparently to a zero facility with ADOBE to help their customers. And I signed up for 9.99 per month. What a waste of time and money ! ! ! ! ! Anyone want to help out and tell me what I've done wrong and how I can at least get an Adobe person on the phone to show me how to use their service. From George
IT LOOKS LIKE IM JUST 'REPLYING' TO MYSELF ! ! ! ! !
i'm cancelling Adobe as soon as I can find a way to connect with their hopeless customer service ( NON-service!!! ). I FEEL SO ANGRY THAT THEY HAVE NO CONSIDERATION FOR BEGINNERS WHO'VE PAID FOR THEIR NON-SERVICE.
The 9.99 that you paid is for the software. It doesn't come with a service plan that provides you with free help and instruction. The help in these forums is provided mainly by unpaid volunteers. Unfortunately, Jorma moved your post to a forum that's concerned with a Dreamweaver tutorial. Maile provided links to tutorials for Adobe Muse (a website building tool for people who don't want to be bothered with the underlying code) and Dreamweaver (a website building tool for more advanced developers/designers). I suggest that you take a look at those tutorials to see which tool suits your needs better.
You can then ask for help in the relevant forums: Help with using Adobe Muse CC or Dreamweaver support forum. If you have no experience of web design/development, it will take time and patience to learn. But you will find a lot of willing helpers in either of the other forums. However, if you feel dealing with the software is beyond your capabilities, you could post a request in the Dreamweaver support forum asking if someone would be willing to create the site for you on a paid basis. I'm not available myself, but I know that some people in the Dreamweaver forum do undertake projects for clients.
CONFIDENTIAL PLEASE (confirm)
Thank you David Powers for at least responding to my request. You were the only person who did!

With best wishes to you David, my unknown helper! (How on Earth did you find me, by the way?)
George Thomas (former BSc, MBA)
You are posting in a public forum that is rapidly indexed by Google and other search engines. So your request for confidentiality has potentially been broadcast across the internet. Fortunately, I'm a volunteer moderator of this forum, so I have deleted the main part of your message.
I found you because I receive copies of all messages posted to this forum, and I responded because you seem to be under a misapprehension about the nature of your 9.99 subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud. It sounds to me that you have mistakenly subscribed to Adobe Creative Cloud in the belief that you will get personal guidance in how to build a website. If that's indeed the case, I suggest that you contact Adobe Customer Support by going to the following page, Learn & Support, and clicking the link under Contact Us (about half way down the page on the right-hand side). To the best of my knowledge, Customer Support is open during business hours on the West Coast of the United States.
Although copies of posts to the forum are sent to participants by email, individual email addresses are not made public. Unfortunately, I cannot offer one-on-one help. To get your material online, I recommend that you hire a professional web designer/developer.
Well thank you David. What a waste of time and excited expectation this has been!
I think I'll drop the whole thing. Too complicated and too impersonal (apart from you, that is!). They are probably good for professionals but I'm a total beginner and will look for something more for beginners, more personal and considerate. Many thanks for trying to intervene for me, David. Can you please keep my info confidential as this sounds like they are scamming me and I don't feel good there. Perhaps I'll be spammed mercilessly after this!
Best wishes, George
I don't think Adobe is scamming you. All that has happened is that you have misunderstood the nature of the Creative Cloud. When you contact Customer Service, you should be able to cancel your contract. Forum members' emails are kept confidential to prevent spamming. You did include your email address in a couple of posts, but I have removed that.
Thanks for you interest, David, I really appreciate you taking an interest in protecting me from spamming.
The fact is I find it really difficult to deal with all these uninvited emails which barge through my defences!
I may have told you I have a global project to launch which helps people to understand the power and need
for green lifestyle skills. Plus there's a chance to get a new sense of celebrating the Earth before it closes the human species down. It's impossible to say what may happen if there's a die off. It's unlikely anyone would survive it, even the rich who may try to survive through their situation. All scientists agree that we are all deeply connected. The last survivors could face a very uncomfortable world and lives. Better for us all to think in terms of rejuvenation and restoration. It all starts in our own homes and creates a delightful atmosphere of health and respect, quite apart from building a new sense of community in all locations. I feel it could happen quite quickly once there's a clear understanding of the human role together as caretakers of our spot and hence the whole system can rebalance. Can you contact me personally?
