[blush] Hi;

I am somewhat dazzled about your Page Publisher product and I need a wee bit more info in order to purchase it. ( It seems that actual users are thrilled about them, which is a great sign ! )

Background: I have used Dreamweaver, FrontPage, & Contribute ( similar to your product ) software for a few years now. Neverheless, I am looking for an easier to use product for my clients.

[1] How do I Design the initial setup of a (5) page website? ( My programs above or PagePublisher ?

[2] Once the basic design is done & uploaded ( My programs or PagePublisher), how does the client log in and update his website? Do they use Internet Explorer only ?

[3] Under what condition(s) would I want to buy more than (1) license? Do users need the program to update their pages ?

[4] Are there any installation instructions available for a dry run installation -and -or- reading ?

Lastly, it is unusual to see that your Forum reflects decent respectable folks minding their own business and not some wild kids and their wild lingo ! ( OK, I am very old... )

Sorry for the long message.

Thank you for your response.

Hi cf12,

Thanks for the forum post [:)].

Thanks for considering Page Publisher. The closest product that Page Publisher can compare to is Contribute, but even so there are significant differences, many which I think fits your needs better.

Since you have several questions, I will answer them in turn:

[1] How do I Design the initial setup of a (5) page website? ( My programs above or PagePublisher ?


Setting up a page to work with Page Publisher is very easy through the use of Publish Tags. For more information about publish tags and what you can do with them, you can go to the documentation and click on the "Adding Pages" button. The page there will explain how it works.

[2] Once the basic design is done & uploaded ( My programs or PagePublisher), how does the client log in and update his website? Do they use Internet Explorer only ?


Your client doesn't need additional software. All they need is Internet Connection and a browser (IE would be just fine). That's one of the greatest advantages Page Publisher has over Contribute.

[3] Under what condition(s) would I want to buy more than (1) license? Do users need the program to update their pages ?


The only condition that would require buying more than 1 license is if you have more than one website you want to manage. One Page Publisher program can manage as many pages as one website can have. There is no user limit, unlike other programs out there.

[4] Are there any installation instructions available for a dry run installation -and -or- reading ?


Installation instructions are available in the documentation page: http://www.interactivetools.com/docs/pagepublisher/index.html. Just click on the bold installation link and you'll see the instructions.

Lastly, it is unusual to see that your Forum reflects decent respectable folks minding their own business and not some wild kids and their wild lingo ! ( OK, I am very old... )
