"Does Exactly what it says!"

January 13, 2012  |  By roxannej77

 |  Version: WebDwarf 2.91L

Pros

Easy to use.
Fast.
Does what it claims.
Rich online community for compatible templates and add-ins (siteSpinner)
Easy enough to create new, or customize existing templates for future use.
Great WYSIWYG interface. Renders true.
Fast Easy Preview of page.
Uses newer <div> tag and <css> formats.(instead of <table> which older WYSIWYG interfaces tend to favor)
Creates very clean html code.
Great for quick page creation or when working with client to finesse location of elements.
Allows code inserts, opening this program up for HTML5 or any gadget that you wish to incorporate.
Save project files for future work.
Template editing very easy.
Click to open element interface... very usable.
Free

Cons

Would be nice if it...
Could open existing html pages.
Create templates from existing webpage.
Built in templates pretty mediocre. (however free templates easily found for sitespinner and they are totally compatible.)Some of the templates created on older versions did not display all of the elements.

Summary

This program does a great job for it's target audience. It is a powerful and easy to use tool for getting the website/webpage in your head, (or your client's head), onto an HTML page.

It is not a tool for managing or updating existing html which was not created on this program.

If you have the creative ideas of what you want a page to look like or you want to move elements around to get it worked out... this is a great tool. If you are looking for website in a can... this is not the right program for you.

You can add your menu,header,footer,etc. (including links) into the template folder and use it for any project.
Creates very clean code. This makes it a great sandbox tool for serious html authors.

The built-in templates are pretty mediocre, but the sitespinner web community has tons of free resources that boost this program.

I wanted a sandbox and this fit the bill very nicely. I appreciate the <div> tag and <css> formatting of the code.

Well done Oh Dwarf of power!

"It should be called a trial version"

October 05, 2011

 |  Version: WebDwarf 2.91L

Pros

It has a ruler. It seems to have some decent functions that are easy to work with.

Cons

It doesn't have a table or any color functions. It seems like it left out a lot of functions purposely to make it harder to work with. Every time you close the program it asks if you want to upgrade to SiteSpinner program which is not free.

Summary

If you want to download this and toy around with it then go ahead. I did that and I'm taking it off my PC in a minute. This really seems like a trial version and they want people to upgrade to SiteSpinner program.

"clumsy, non-intuitive, and just odd to use"

August 27, 2011  |  By mrmannerz

 |  Version: WebDwarf 2.91L

Pros

It will make a web page.

Cons

This is a weird program. It requires a couple extra steps to modify an existing webpage. When I tried to edit existing text, it truncated the top of the page. They have made simple editing difficult and cantankerous.

Summary

I expect to feel a certain level of confidence with software. This product did not give me that. It reminds me a bit of the fear that MS Vista gave me when I had that on my computer. Uninstalled.
