Which is the best of the two programs Rapidweaver or Sandvox...<br><br>I use Claris Home Page 3.0 and need to move to something as much like it...<br><br>I need to put in code for PayPal<br>I need to have a survey form<br>I have some pages as HTM and HTML and is there a way to keep them as I had them with <br>Can I use feth with this program<br><br>Thanks<br><br>
I use RapidWeaver (very little) and found it to be quite easy to use, but it's not a WYSIWYG editor in the true sense. It uses pre-designed templates, so all you're doing is providing the content. It's quite flexible though, allowing you to add all sorts of doo-dads like commenting on blog posts, Flash photo galleries, etc. But again, this is NOT an editor in the way you think it is.<br><br>You probably need to move to something like Freeway Express, $89 for the download version, $109 for the boxed version.<br><br>You should probably try to find someone with high-speed Internet access to download the demos for all the apps and burn them to CD for you. That way your try them all before buying.<br><br>CreativeGuy for daily tips, tricks and commentary on all things graphic design.

Good idea on the down load...<br><br>Which do you think I would like that as close to Claris Home Page?<br><br>I loke the templates and the new things but if freeway express does not have them then my page will look like CHP<br><br>I have NVU and that is free is that better than freeway express? I will pay for one that will work as easy as CHP but do not want to buy 3 programs...so maybe down loads will work maybe?<br><br><br><br>
Michael...do you think I will be able to do as I now do on my web page http://www.peafowl.com in sandvox and make it look like 2007?<br><br>It seems to have a few things that I can not do now...<br><br>What about the issue of some of my pages having a html or htm can I make those pages have the same end tag?<br><br>Can I use Fetch or is it better up load to my server with their own FTP upload program?<br><br><br><br>
Not really sure what you mean...are you saying I can save a page as a htm or html page and that can be set in RW...<br><br>Since I have no choice but dial up I can not use .mac so I use my server for my page...maybe it can be used to ftp to my server other than .mac right?<br><br>I have a folder of all my web pages with a index page and I ftp my pages using fetch to my web host server...does RW do this as well...and if anyone out there know if Sandbox will let me do this as well?<br><br>

Rapid Weaver can ftp without the use of a standalone ftp program like Fetch or Transmit. Unlike iWeb, RW will also update only those pages that have changed since your last ftp.<br><br>RW is awesome and has a terrific support group as well. The RW forum is maintained by the developers so answers are always at hand, and the RW community is huge and always willing to help out.<br><br>RW has several third-party plug-ins too. My favorite is Blocks, which allows for super easy drag & drop webpage construction.<br><br>Check out RealMac's Showcase webpages for examples of other people's work using RW.<br><br>Although RW underwent a price increase recently, it's worth every penny. As I said, the support is the real value. However, you may find, as I did, that if content is your primary concern and you see yourself adding and subtracting content on a regular basis then this software will do the trick. But, if your site will remain pretty much static for months on end, then you might be better off with CHP.<br><br>If you have any more questions concerning RW, I would suggest you take a look at their Help Desk. You'll find a couple of video tutorials on the Help Desk as well.<br><br>Edit: Added link to the Showcase.<br><br><br>M i c h a e l (OFI)<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by G4Dualie on 11/14/07 01:48 AM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
