I was offered a 10-hour training CD on this product in exchange for a full review from a CSB user viewpoint which may be different that from a Dreamweaver view. I agreed as much to help the other person as myself. I am REALLY going to do my best to learn this one and give it my full attention when I try it out.
I think it's time I took webs a bit more seriously.
Actually, we have a lot of lightweight software listed on the forum as possible replacements for CSB users and really thought we needed one with more meat on the bone to round out our selections. This one seems to be the most logical choice for our forum. The price point, though high, is better than Adobe's Dreamweaver. So far the reviews are much much much better than FrontPage (
) and look promising. 2 drawbacks: No built-in support for PHP and does not do Secure FTP. I truly think they will add the FTP so it can be authorized for use on Government jobs.
Long-term, some of us may want to move up to stronger, more professional software and other than Dreamweaver, I know of no other product as "professional" level as this one.
Wanda, should you try it? SURE. You get 60 days full trial! That's great. I do think this software would require some time that you can devote to learning it. I don't think it is like CSB open and publish same day so keep that in mind before downloading the trial. Do it when you really have time to immerse yourself in a different product.
