This program needs:
a working undo function...!?
1) It is sometimes not possible to undo text typed (for example if you partially type something, then move the cursor, etc.)
2) you CAN'T UNDO PASSED YOUR LAST SAVE!!!!
seriously, this function is now implemented in 95% of mac programs.

This program SHOULD have:
drag and drop functionality... I can't drag the ending yellow dot (marking the tag) down the next line to incorporate another line of text in my css formatting? The pseudo code/layout hybrid view (a.k.a. "Structure" view) is BEGGING for this to be doable.

This program has a LOT of potential. But at present it's a little too clunky. And unless the above 3 items are implemented, I couldn't fathom paying a >> bill

OOPS, the rest of my review got cut off, so here it is:

***********
(that means 100 USD) for this program. And as far as the dev arguing the price like that?... mmm... at least give the program a "working" (according the the standards set by 95% of OS X developers) undo function... YIKES!

The quick "browser" view is also skittish. Sometimes I just want to select something out of the way... but if you're doing complex/layered css code that moves divs around a lot, then you can't avoid selecting something (and therefore highlighting it)... pretty annoying.

As far as the dual view with the drawer... I wasn't overly impressed. It was helpful... but, annoying to change which side the drawer pops out on... I don't know if it's a bug... but,I couldn't reliably do it, so I am stuck with the left "view" toolbar applying to the main window, which is on the right of the second-view (and can't seem to change it, though I've done it 3 times before)...)

The Help:
The help files / references ARE NOT SEARCHABLE! Ummm.... this is really a hard-hit to something called a "help/reference"... sorry. Need to make these searchable to stay decent if you're calling them help/references.

So, with the exception of me being too foolish to switch which side the drawer pops out on, all of these are legitimate updates that should be made as soon as possible...

Don't get me wrong, I like the program, but with these issues outstanding...? The otherwise wonderful workflow is so impinged...

Quite frankly I just tried and I think all the features it has are available in Skedit, and Skedit offers s lot more than this for about the same price. I have no relation to Skedit, I am just a regular user :)

If you use GoodPage as text editor just for typing text in Code view, then it may be true. As a text-editor it is not much better than any other text editor.

But, for example, if you do any CSS at all, or PHP work with live server and database, or complex HTML, or need multiple views of a document with fast switching, any other app doesn't come close.

So, it's how you work and what are your needs. If you only need text editor, GoodPage is too expensive for you. If you want more, GoodPage offers much more and at a very good price.

This one is a gem: quick, clean, intuitive.

I found it after getting fed up with Dreamweaver bloatware.

Sorry, I made a few typos in my review. I made de corrections, here is the ok text:

Review by Anonymous: Yeah, GoLive has lots of bells and whistles but it's a bloated software, takes at least 25 secs to load, icons are barely visible. As for FTP, I am old enough to use Transmit, the best of it's kind. GoodPage is a great alternative! I bought a licence when it came out and never looked back. - Normand (8/22/2005, Version: 1.2)

The FTP support in GoodPage had problems with usernames containing '@' or other strange characters. This has been fixed in 1.2...

Great tool for serious web development, especially CSS. When I had a PC I worked with Dreamweaver. Now I have a Mac and use GoodPage for everything except Flash. I'm way more productive with Goodpage than any other tool. It can open any page from internet, so it is good for learning, too.

Yawn. Interesting ideas, but GoLive and Dreamweaver offer a hell of lot more including robust FTP/WebDAV tools and site management features. skEdit is a nicer code tool, and PageSpinner is nice too. Goodpage might appeal to some people, but $99 is a bit steep for this quirky tool.

As we said in reply to other comment, FTP problems with usernames containing '@' or other strange characters were resolved in version 1.2.

Excellent product. Of all the HTML web authoring tools on the market, this is the only one I have found that is more productive than a text editor. Very nice!
