"WebMerge 2.2 review"
Version: Animals in the Bible Reference Lexicon for Palm OS 1.0

I develop web pages using affiliate links to direct folks to vendors I think have interesting products to offer, or books to sell.
I'd been hand-coding my html pages for about a year when I first heard about WebMerge. Everyone raved about how much time it saved, and the support the author offered, so I tried it.
My comments about it are the same as many others I know who've tried it -- it's an incredible bargain at the price! When I finally bought a copy, I'd just developed my own home-grown program to do roughly what WebMerge does, but I tossed that out as soon as I'd tried WebMerge. There was just no way I could match that functionality in my own program for that price!
My wife also creates web pages for a living. She'd started using the semi-automated program I'd written also. She'd resisted digging into WebMerge because that meant she'd have to learn about databases -- at least a little bit -- to really use it. Well, after watching me create a lot of pages in a short time, she finally gave in and bought a copy for herself.
She also downloaded a vendor's datafeed. The next morning I woke to find a note: "Wow, this is really fun!! I just put up 50 pages!" They needed polishing, but everything was functional -- all the links, images, navigation, etc.
Whenever I've had a question or problem, the program's author has responded immediately -- usually within an hour. He listens to the user's concerns, and implements new features regularly. And you get free updates for a year after you register your copy.
The program's been flawless for me. Never a hiccup, it never does strange things, it just helps me create web pages.
If you think I'm sold on this program, you're right! There's a short learning curve while you learn how to use it. After that it's really simple to use.
It's solid, does what it says it does, has great support, and is really cheap. Folks, this is as good as it gets.
If you have a need for a program of this type, GET THIS ONE.
