    "almost useless"

    July 6, 2009  |   By roadiebob

    Pros

    seems to install well.

    Cons

    not good at making multiple page web sites

    Summary

    I bought this after taking a few HTML classes just to speed up web site maintenance. I found that it is not very intuitive to use. Also the saving thing that drives everyone crazy also drives me crazy. I have yet to produce a usable web page with this program. I always end up going back to hand coding. I have produced several with A++ notepad that work fine.
    The other thing that drives me crazy is that the program promotes itself as a "cost effective" HTML editor, but they send me frequent emails with the latest 25-50 dollar ad on. I bought a few, never used them so I am off that merry-go-round now.
    Documentation is pretty slim. I looked for books on using the editor and found none, no user groups other then the ones on Coffee Cup's site itself.
    My recommendation is I would keep looking rather then buying this. there are open source editors that are every bit as good, but without the price tag.
