Editors' review

If you're not picky about design and just want to get a Web site up with text, pictures, and a navigation bar, PersonalWebKit can do the job quickly. You choose one of PersonalWebKit's attractive page templates, then fill in the details using the extremely spare (and frankly unattractive) tabbed interface. The program supplies a standard set of text-editing features, including outlining and bulleting. Just don't expect to do any direct HTML editing--that's definitely not PersonalWebKit's forte. Adding links is very simple. You even can link some parts of the text with PDF, DOC, or media files, which the program automatically uploads to your Web host along with your site. There's also a function for building picture galleries, and extensive help makes the program even more beginner-friendly. The demo now allows you to access all the program's features for the purpose of building one Web site. That's enough to show that PersonalWebKit produces tidy, attractive, and functional results, which is all its target audience really needs to know.

    "Crashes Repeatedly"

    November 03, 2008   |   By castlemc

    Version: PersonalWebKit 3.3

    Pros

    Just what I wanted - a Website design program for novices. Simple to use with many commands similar to other programs such as word processors. Alas, too good to be true.

    Cons

    I spent hours learning this program and then tried using it. It has crashed five times in three hours even after I followed the recommendation to uninstall and reinstall. I have XP on a Dell Dimension with 2.8 GHz processor and 1 GB of memory.

    Summary

    This program is now free and they no longer offer a version that requires payment. Now we know why. BTW, there is no support period.

    "Fast & Easy if you need a basic site fast"

    November 20, 2007   |   By cybergaar

    Version: PersonalWebKit 3.3

    Pros

    NOW FREE: Easy to create a single website using peformatted templates. Able to import your own photos and simple edit them within the program; creates basic photo gallery. Can create multiple websites if you rename the default folder your website is created in (hassle). Overall, a very good very basic WYSIWYG web page creator.

    Cons

    As of June 1, 2007, no longer selling registered versions of PersonalWebKit

    They decided to take a break from selling the Registered Version and are providing the FREE version only for the time being for these reasons:

    * Staff will be enjoying some much deserved holidays.

    * Since we they have started to get very good response to the FREE version, they decided to concentrate on that.

    The FREE version of PersonalWebKit 3.3 is also allowed to be used for small business websites.

    In order to respect those people whom have recently purchased a Registration Code the FREE version is still limited by: * Only allowing a single website to be built. * Maintaining a marketing link at the bottom right of all websites built with PersonalWebKit.
