Hi,

Is there a way to do this or a CMS that a client can edit text (possibly images)?

Or must I design a website using a CMS system like WordPress, Wix, SquareSpace, Weebly, Perch,...?

I am using DW CC 2018

There is no such thing as a DW website. Dreamweaver is a tool to assist in developing a web site. The code that is produced is available to any simple text editor.

There are a number of solutions that can be used depending on the complexity of the site and the ability of your customer to code in HTML and CSS. They could use

  • Dreamweaver or similar program - needs to know HTML and CSS
  • TinyMCE - can be used on a text based (flat) database or a full blown relational database
  • bespoke CMS - needs a database
  • ready made CMS like Wordpress - works out-of-the-box

My preference goes to the third option where you give the customer limited access to making changes to the website. That way they cannot destroy your overall design.
