SiteSpinner

CNET 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.

    "Perfect professional results even for a novice."

    February 2, 2011  |   By vegetarian-fun

    Version: SiteSpinner 2.7c

    Pros

    I downloaded it, opened it and was able to use it without any major learning curve at all.

    Cons

    I haven't learned how to set up the email forms yet and I'll gladly blame that on my own lack of experience rather than on the program!

    Summary

    I had no experience with site builders except for a profile page one ISP had offered until October of 2009. At that time, someone gifted a vegetarian site to myself and a friend. We continued to build our newly gifted site on the site builder that the host provided, but decided that we wanted to move our site to a different host when our term expired. Imagine our dismay when we finally did move our site and discovered that the program it was built with was not compatible with any other hosting company! The builder that had been supplied and used to build the site, and that we had unwittingly continued to use, was specifically designed to work correctly on only the original host!

    I tried three different site building programs, but I don't know how to write my own code, so there went the first one. Unless I purchased an upgrade immediately, I couldn't import pictures on the second one. The third one wouldn't let me design my own page at all and I had to chose a template, but my site was already built and I didn't want to change it! All were far beyond my skill set, and I began to lost hope of finding anything I could manage. That's when SiteSpinner came to my rescue!

    With SiteSpinner I was able to easily duplicate the original 180 to 200 page site and have it up and running on a new host within two weeks. It was so easy in fact, that I kept going back to the page I had found the free trial on and checking the purchase price to buy the program because I was SURE there was a mistake and that it would be corrected before I finished my 15 day trial! There was no mistake, and I did purchase SiteSpinner as a totally satisfied customer before I spent a penny!

    We are now working on our second site and this one will be built using SiteSpinner from the very beginning!

    Incredibly easy to use, but very professional looking results from someone with as little knowledge as myself. I highly recommend it for novices!

    Ease of creating a website is one of this programs many strongest points.

    Cons

    Not finding it earlier.

    I have been using SiteSinner since 2003 and have been very happy with it's performance, I have tried other software programs over the years to create my website but after experiencing SiteSpinner I decided that was the one for me.

    "User friendly and great potential for your website"

    October 21, 2010  |   By brookrenwick

    Version: SiteSpinner 2.7c

    Pros

    It is user friendly and I get a lot of hits because my site looks good. Further more I did not pay a web designer $800 and I can update the info when I fell like doing so.

    Cons

    I had to reload it once because one of the functions stopped but it has been fine since. If it happens to you....[one function stops] just reinstall it. No other problems.

    Summary

    You can save a lot of money with this user friendly software and you can get a good professional screen display with the user friendly choices available. You can also change and update the website you create as often as you want to without asking your web designer to do it for you and paying them for it. I am glad I found this software!!!!

    "Powerful and easy to use."

    August 6, 2010  |   By Phil2004

    Version: SiteSpinner 2.7c

    Pros

    Easy placement and resizing of images. Easy to lay out page elements.

    Cons

    Not as powerful as the high-end products, but that's not bad, as it is not as costly either, and does all I need for it to do.

    Summary

    I recommend you try it - you may just like it and buy it like I did.

    "SiteSpinner is the best! I highly recommend it!"

    July 12, 2010  |   By twilightandmist

    Version: SiteSpinner 2.7c

    Pros

    User friendly, WYSIWYG, see as you go. Easy to manuever around, and is forgiving.

    Cons

    Forms could be a little better, button creation, but I'm sure that will come in one of their updates ;)

    Summary

    Can't be beat!

    "Delightful to use, just drag and drop."

    June 21, 2010  |   By jgmc3

    Version: SiteSpinner 2.7c

    Pros

    Very simple layout, making it user friendly. I managed to understand all it's features almost immediately, by which time my site was published. I find it so delightful that I actually look forward to making more sites and I've no clue of HTML.

    Cons

    If we're being honest, nothing is perfect, some imported objects(from other sites)cannot be previewed, until published. This is true of SiteSpinner, I don't know about Pro. I have to say, It's only certain objects from certain sites.

    "Good Product.... But!"

    May 22, 2010  |   By mightymike2009

    Version: SiteSpinner 2.7c

    Pros

    Nicely written program and very user friendly. Easy to create your own web pages.

    Cons

    Using the trial version I had no problems. After buying and installing an upgrade version, none of my links would work. There is no uninstall and I think the trial version screwed up the upgrade version.

    Summary

    Without working links, the program is useless. I am sure if I hadn't had the trial version, the program would have worked correctly. There is no way to completely uninstall this product. I had absolutely no help from SiteSpinner to resolve the problem.

    "Best WYSIWYG editor that I have tried"

    May 10, 2010  |   By Chris_Levo

    Version: SiteSpinner 2.7c

    Pros

    Easy to use straight away; that is saying something for me and any graphics program.
    Stunning and immediate Customer Service is so different to most other software vendors

    Cons

    None that come to mind

    Summary

    What you get for the price is a product that is easy to use for a beginner, but powerful enough to create complex sites.
    Customer Service like it used to be is incredibly refreshing.
    I bought at the end of the first day of trying it.
