Editors' Review

+

Suitable for both Web-design newbies and HTML hotshots, CoffeeCup 2008 introduces a new CSS and HTML autocompletion tool to join its well-known WYSIWYG and standard HTML editors.

It continues to offer powerful features melded to a straightforward and compact interface that is organized by tabs--perfect for keeping track of multiple projects. Its advanced features include HTML and CSS scripting, Flash animations, and drag-and-drop Java scripts. Beginners, meanwhile, get an excellent tutorial and a WYSIWYG editor that supports simple drag-and-drop. Heavily trafficked support forums are also available. An extensive array of samples and templates includes site designs and JavaScript-based widgets such as calendars and calculators.

You also get a complete list of tags. Inserting an image, a table, a list, or a DHTML menu is a snap. Tabbed editing lets you simultaneously change multiple pages, and a built-in FTP client facilitates one-click uploading. The status bar displays valid usage suggestions, and you even get a built-in thesaurus. Full-featured and easy to use, users who are worried about the $50 price tag should be comforted by the fact that it includes lifetime free upgrades.

"Nothing special, many other ones are much better."

April 03, 2010  |  By markisgood2

 |  Version: CoffeeCup HTML Editor 2008

Pros

*Syntax highlighting

Cons

*Always crashed(Had to restart)
*Have to save everytime to switch workspaces
*There are maybe 3 themes, and each one costs about 15 dollars.
*The text editing is poor, so is the tag validation.

Summary

Coffeecup HTML Editor is really just something that can syntax highlight, and nothing other then that. I wouldn't recommend it.

"Non-existent free customer support"

March 28, 2010  |  By yjkodiak

 |  Version: CoffeeCup HTML Editor 2008

Pros

Basic functions relatively easy to use.

Cons

1. Customer support is extremely poor, virtually non-existent, and not knowledgeable of the program.
2. The program is very limited. Even if you purchase additional modules, there are still severe limitations to the program.

Summary

1. Customer support costs $15 for 30 minutes. There;s a chat support, but they never reply. You can also choose to send questions to support, but the answers take 1-2 days to arrive, and are regurgitations of the manual, not answering the questions.
2. The basic kit has very limited, basic functions. In order to do more than just basic functions, you need to buy individual program modules, some of which are just as expensive as the basic program. By the time you are finished purchasing all of the modules needed to put together a nice website, you have spent as much money as a quality high-end program such as dreamweaver etc.

"I had trouble using it"

December 02, 2009  |  By TominCA

 |  Version: CoffeeCup HTML Editor 2008

Pros

I did not use it enough to really like anything

Cons

I had trouble with directories matching up with documents already donew in Dreamweaver

Summary

I am NOT an experienced HTML person - I just make occasional changes to text on existing pages - For years I have only used Dreamweaver - Understanding that will help you evaluate my review - This program would not put the pictures in the correct directory when I uploaded to the server - I don't know why because I was using the same template I used for Dreamweaver - I tried for an hour or so and then just deleted the trial version I was using - it wasnt' worth the effort..

Pros

Nothing good to say!

Cons

They promise an easy to use program but I found it very, very difficult. Would not advise for beginners or even intermediate users.

Summary

Forget it.

"poor support next to no support, poor documentation"

September 29, 2009  |  By JerryinAlabama

 |  Version: CoffeeCup HTML Editor 2008

Pros

Not much, my experience.

Cons

It is mentioned, not more than a bunch of auto tag completion.
They offer many add on's and all they seem to want is the additional $29.00.
For me it is just to klutzy of a produce. YUCK!

Summary

I think many users are content with the HTML editor. I am not.

"Better than Front Page, barely"

September 09, 2009  |  By dynamiteDuo

 |  Version: CoffeeCup HTML Editor 2008

Pros

Slicker interface, more functionality.

Cons

Some commands are counter intuitive such as FORMAT, PARAGRAPH. All Micro$oft Office apps use this to, duh, manage the format of a paragraph.

CoffeeCup uses this command to INSERT a paragraph.
System has also crash several times in the past week.

Summary

Very annoying come ons to get you purchase the full product. I'll be looking for something better.

"This Company is awful and they want your money only."

August 28, 2009  |  By grabacontroller

 |  Version: CoffeeCup HTML Editor 2008

Pros

The software is alright but could be a boatload better. Good ideas but not very good at implementing them.

Cons

Support is downright nasty and you can't talk to the owner and they don't have aol messenger ids anymore.

Summary

About support: I got a dumb response about not knowing what an installer is and I submitted a feature request on double clicking the installer again after the software is installed to say where it says uninstall, repair, or cancel after the software is installed. I told them that I knew that you could install it in the control panel. They never said that they did not understand. I even showed them a picture example. They could never even say that we are looking into this or we are not doing this. They do not even update all of the software installers or have it where it updates all of the software automatically. You do not even get a dialog saying that your software has been updated in the software. I think they just want the money and are lazy. Worst of all, I talked to the head developer. They need to get real people on support and not some know it all developer.

August 14, 2009

 |  Version: CoffeeCup HTML Editor 2008

Pros

I don't know where to start the WYSIWYG is fantastic. If anyone can not create a website easily with this program they should really consider turning the computer off.

Cons

Wish ity had a count down to the 30 day expiration other than that nothing
