Editors' Review

+
Even in the era of MySpace and instant blogs, learning the basics of Web design is useful. SiteSpinner is a site-creation tool aimed at beginners, but with a variety of tools that will help them learn as they work. Its wide range of options is even capable of teaching professionals a few tricks. The interface is a bit cluttered, but well-designed enough to lead new users smoothly through the process of creating relatively complicated pages. Most actions, such as creating an index page, can be triggered simply by clicking the corresponding icon, and then specifying page details such as color of links, header, and background. Navigation inside the program is simple. The program doesn't help with advanced design features such as Cascading Style Sheets, but we definitely recommend it as a quick primer on basic design, and as quick way to get a site off the ground.

"Fantastic WYSIWYG"

August 26, 2013  |  By scogginsunl

 |  Version: SiteSpinner 2.91g

Pros

This product is my go to.
Easy to learn
Easy to work
Support is quick and respectful
I just type what I want and put it where I want, even html codes

Cons

Sometimes the alignment get tricky

Summary

I have been using this product for about 3.5 years. I have managed to lose my codes every single time I have purchased a new computer or had to recover a computer. The support team has been quick to get me the codes in order to get my SiteSpinner up and running again. I absolutely love this product. I have managed to find many things I couldn't do. This product is great for my knowledge level of web design. I'm not a complete novice, but I'm far from an expert. This is a reliable WYSIWYG. I have even been able to put PayPal codes and other embedded codes within my page as needed.

Pros

It is very simple to use and gives a wide range of options. I have never regretted getting it. The customer service is out of this world.

Cons

The only thing I would like to see improved is is there could be a phot editing feature added.

"Excellent Product, Great Support Community"

January 17, 2012  |  By jwiley0905x

 |  Version: SiteSpinner 2.91g

Pros

Ease of use. Intuitive, end-user friendly interface doesn't require a programmer to create high-quality web-sites by "regular Joe" users, but still has the technical capabilities to satisfy the needs of higher-end developers. Site Spinner allows us to develop websites for customers and deliver the ENTIRE package to them so they can easily alter and maintain their web presence.

Cons

The only issue I have ever run into with Site Spinner is that it doesn't support encrypted uploads to webhosts that require it. While this capability should be included by default, the uploads are easily handled by 3d party software. VM should address this at their earliest convenience.

Summary

I've been using Site Spinner for years. Recently, my computer crashed and, after building another, I had to reload Site Spinner. After all these years, I had misplaced my original registration info. One quick e-mail to VM and I got a very timely reply from Emma with my info and I was up and running in no-time. Not only is this a great product, it's very affordable and comes with a very responsive support staff and and outstanding community of users. If you don't have hundreds of dollar to purchase an ultra-high end web development program that you can barely understand and features that you could never take advantage of, Site Spinner IS THE solution to get your web site up and going.

"Very good, I only miss a better support for css."

November 19, 2011  |  By zekurius123

 |  Version: SiteSpinner 2.91g

Pros

1. Easy to get started with.
2. very good support!
3. With a little effort you can really use css in Sitespinner.

Cons

The biggest is that you can not edit in the code. Big minus. But as I said it is possible to use stylesheets, but not so easy.

Summary

Very good, I like it. And can really recommend it!

"Don't let the cost fool you -- this product is loaded."

September 24, 2011  |  By allisoncarl

 |  Version: SiteSpinner 2.91g

Pros

Site Spinner has a good balance of rich features in an easy to understand application. Many great tutorials built in covering more specialized techniques. Great value for the money!

Cons

There must be something, and I'm not an expert in website design, but I'm not a newbie either. Maybe the pro's could find something to criticize, but I've yet to discover what it is.

Summary

I'm a small business owner who bought Site Spinner in 2003 when I first created my company's website. At first, I bought it for price, thinking I would upgrade to a "better" product when I needed it. As my company grew, I realized there's a lot under the hood of Site Spinner that I didn't realize was there in the beginning. The customer service is great and whenever I'm stumped, I go to the very active forums where someone has likely asked my question already and gotten an answer from the SS staff or the legion of volunteer "experts" that are all so helpful. Also, the product is constantly being upgraded and improved, and upgrades are FREE!
