I understand your frustration, but owning websites isn't just for people that know how to code them. More and more each day websites are becoming easier to build with the help of designer programs, these programs are point and click & drop and drag, even a monkey can do it. The programs do the coding for you and are implemented into the site builder much like the "Admin panel" of forumotion but better and easier with far more advanced options, all you do is tell it what you want. Coders make the programs and they are getting better each year. The days of raw manual coding are fading fast, but I think some people will always do it because they enjoy the challenge. The key for programs taking over learning how to install raw codes is making them with an infinite amount of variables, so in effect the possibilities your imagination can come up with and execute are endless, so your imagination can flow freely with no limitations, and no knowledge of coding is required. That day is upon us.
Right now a lot depends on the server you decide to build your site on, some have better page designers than others, and some don't have page designers at all they just give you a blank html page to work with, and those are the ones not doing very good. The successful severs have advanced page designers/builders with point & click drop and drag capabilities where no knowledge of coding is required. Where does that leave forumotion? Well since forumotion is just a forum host they don't have too much to worry about right now with there admin panel because forums are not competing with full-blown website developments, they are targeting a smaller audience who's main concerns are making posts, so they got that area covered. The majority of design demands are smaller than websites, so forum hosts aren't being pressured as much to have great page designer programs. That's not to say the future of forum hosts won't have better designer programs someday because they probably will when there competition starts to have them.
