Looking for website desginer Answered

I am looking to create a website similar to the Instructables.com site.  Is there any similar software or advice where users could post images, videos and code for their projects?

You could use Webs (www.webs.com) or Weeblee (www.weeblee.com) for simple purpose, or wordpress. You should learn HTML or XHTML to start, and if you want a site as big as Instructables, you'll need lots of storage and bandwidth. :) Hope this helps.

(But why make an Instructables site if there already is one?)

I have made a product (duinokit.com) and I would like a place where people can share their projects made on the kit. I think I have a solution,,,,

So you want it to be more like an interactive site about your product, right? In that case, use a provider like Wix, Webs, or Weebly. Webs and Wix are recommended because they support webs stores.

Why don't you just request to start a group or have this private group functionality on instuctables? You could then use the rss feed for that group to display projects on your site.

Try a wordpress theme from themeforrest and find a solution that has all of the nuts and bolts you require. theyre pretty cheap compared to a bespoke solution and can have an easily tailored design (to a point)

The site is custom built and maintained by a team* of developers, so doubt there's a package you can buy. The cheapest starting option is probably to choose a free blogging service and start posting there.
