After being a long time iWeb user I had come to rely on Rage Softwares add-ons for picking up where Apple left off to help make my web sites more professional. When Apple abandoned iWeb support, I was looking for other options especially because in more...

Hang on. To publish from EverWeb, you have to buy an annual subscription even if you have your own third-party hosting site? Isn't that a deal-breaker? Or am I misreading something?

No, you don't have to purchase an annual subscription. The standalone version gets you one year of updates and support. You never lose access to the version you purchase (or any updates) and you don't ever lose the ability to publish.

Looks like a great option for current/former iWeb users. But being a desktop app is disappointing, old school and significantly limits its appeal and usefulness.

Hi Scott,

Although we appreciate your feedback I would have to disagree with you.

An online website builder provides the benefit of editing your site from anywhere.

However, because they have to go through an additional layer (the web browser), online editors are slower to use (due to network lag), less user friendly and cannot provide the flexibility of a native application like EverWeb.

Of course, this may be a matter of opinion but I would suggest trying EverWeb to see how powerful and useful it really is.

We even allow multiple users to edit a single site using dropbox which means as long as you have the software installed, you can edit your website from any OS X computer.

With that being said, we are working to provide the best of both worlds with being able to edit a website from any device, but have the speed and flexibility of a desktop application.

EverWeb is an answer to my prayers. Coordination and maintenance of my previous website (which was built and maintained by a third party) was extremely difficult and never met my expectations. Then I discovered EverWeb. With minimal web experience, I was able to build the site I wanted and needed.... PLUS now I can make any changes any time I need to.
The manual is a bit sparse, and the tutorials are good, but I needed a little more help. The support team was outstanding, quick with replies and extremely helpful in all regards.
Am anxious to see continued enhancements.
Would like to see more in the color palate.... primarily in the addition of "textures."
Great Program... Very happy with the results.

In a world of things that do not work well, it is such an AAAH! moment to work with people like you, and a software program that is excellent. You guys are with it, at it, on it, of it, and about it! And it is only getting better.

The support you provide and the continuing improvements, are so appreciated.
I just discovered that I can now uploaded a new site with ease because you added a direct FTP upload feature. This will also make it easier for my clients.

I love being able to offer websites that my smaller customers can afford and can manage for themselves. And this is not to say that high caliber website developers are not needed, of course they are. However, it is great that there are options for those who do not need that all powerful hoop-dee-do site.

I can tell my smaller clients who are on a small budget, that EverWeb is the route they need to go for their website needs. These are smaller companies and individuals who want to be able to manage their own site once I design it. There are those who do not have the funds to hire an HTML programmer to design a site they will not be able to manage themselves and then keep paying ongoing management fees. Some of my customers want the luxury of being able to make changes as needed and at their leisure, on their time frame.

EverWeb is as easy as iWeb and so much more improved. I am excited about finding the time to rework my own website on this EverWeb platform soon.

How can I thank you enough, except to take the time to type it. THANKS GUYS!
KUDOS ON A GREAT LITTLE SOFTWARE!

Really excited to own and be using EverWeb. As we go forward and the product picks up steam in terms of updates and features, I'm confident that we're going to get what we're looking for.

I had hoped that Flux would achieve what RageSW is doing, but they just haven't taken this direction that I'd hoped to see long ago. Modeling this after iWeb / iWork functionality is fantastic. I'd like to perhaps see a little tighter code on the output or even perhaps SCSS and HAML output + the ability to integrate some Ruby and Rails functionality, but for churning out robust static designs rapidly, this is going in the right direction.

I would also like to see more focus on SEO / SEM and content authoring as well since rapid site creation with quickly rolled content is such a strong point here for such software. Sure would be nice to see some functionality of https://clevergizmos.com/keyword-organizer/, https://clevergizmos.com/keyword-researcher/ and Clever Gizmos other unique takes on theme design and optimization.

Just some shotgun thoughts. I'll have to get more focused and pointed as I progress with EverWeb in terms of recommendations.

$80 is kind of a turn off considering how basic the software is. Rapidweaver is much more capable at the same price.

Even Apple's Pages, Numbers and Keynote together are only $60.

Hi Bdkennedy1,

Although we appreciate all feedback, we would be very interested to hear why you think EverWeb is basic? It contains more freedom in design and more built in widgets than the product you mentioned.

Although each product has their own pros and cons, if you could provide more details on what you feel is missing (and is available in similar products for the same price), it would be helpful to the viewers here, and to us.

Lastly Apple is the largest company in the world and uses their software to sell $1000+ computers. Small companies such as us don't have that luxury so we have to charge more for our software. In contrast to Apple, we provide quicker updates instead of 1 update every 1-2 years as is the case for the software you mentioned.

You can post your feedback here, or contact us privately through our website: http://www.everwebapp.com/support/index.html

Looking forward to your response.

I've been an iWeb user for years, and I liked the app. I could do just about anything I needed to, sometimes with some helper apps. or workarounds but I got it done!
When Apple discontinued it I was not happy because there wasn't really anything out there that did all that iWeb did...

I was lucking enough to start using "EasyWeb" (pre EverWeb) when they were just getting into their first beta. From the start I could see that this was going to be the only app. out there that came close to iWeb. I've been using it for almost a year now and it's fine, it does most things plus some more things that we wished iWeb did!

I'll admit there are a couple (small pain) things that are missing, but I'll get over it! And they'll probably be coming down the road in an update.

As far as the (versions) hosted vs stand alone... I'm one of those guys that doesn't need hosting, I've got my own thank you.
The hosted version is an ok deal if you need hosting you might as well use them... If you don't need it, you're free to do your own thing.
And paying $49 a year for updates is ok with me, you don't have to pay if you don't want to, you'll just use it at the last update you get before your time is up.

If their development and updates keep coming, I don't have a problem supporting them.

As far as there customer service... if you read that rant by "Whitebuck" and saw how Paul responded, that shows they've got a good guy handing it!

Comment or first impression. After visiting their Web Site.
Just checking out their Web site is very disconcerting, knowing it was Made with Everweb. In Firefox 28, their Buy and Download Links did not work! I was forced to open the links in Opera Next. And they are trying to sell upgrades before a consumer has even purchased a License! Contemptible greed, suggest a lack of integrity. It seems that they intend to victimize their consumers with perpetual extortion, for overpriced upgrades. From what appears to be an unscrupulous Software vender. My excitement for a possible replacement for iWeb was quickly tempered. I await, a reply from Rage Software.

I recant, for Firefox does work after allowing "Google analytics tracker" in Ghostery.

1. We are upfront about all costs and licensing fees BEFORE a user must purchase
2. We provide a year of FREE upgrades and support
3. We don't require upgrade fees, ONLY if the user determines they are worthy of the fee
4. We offer other pricing structures that in most cases save people money because they don't need to pay for hosting too
5. We update very frequently

At most, EverWeb will cost you either

a. $80 ($79.95) for the first year and $50 (49.95) for every year after that

OR

b. $100(99.90)/year with hosting

Paul Levine was quick to respond, congenial and very helpful.


Yearly updates for 49.95 after the first year are exorbitant in my opinion and not protocol with any of my other 169 Applications. To much like taxes!

I do not want to pay $50.00 a year for an application. A more affordable and typical upgrade protocol of every 18 to 24 months or longer is acceptable and some of my favorites are one time purchase for life upgrades. Oh well, it is what it is.

After correspondence with Everwebs developers they do not appear to be unscrupulous in any way and their initial price for EverWeb is acceptable. That said, I still vehemently dis-like and disagree with their update protocol and pricing for their EverWeb App without hosting. But it may be exactly what others need. We all have different requirements and demands from our software. If their pricing scheme changes, I may ultimately purchase it to replace Apples abandoned iWeb. Because I love the simplicity. I downloaded it and still intend exploring it further.

Thanks again to Paul Levine of Rage Software for his patient, politely informative and quick replies.

Whitebuck your comments constitute malicious slander at best, they are unacceptable, inaccurate as you yourself have admitted and you should be banned from Macupdate as you offer noting to the community with commentary like this. If you don't like something then don't buy it. I don't like the price of Cadillacs so I drive a KIA but I don't slander the maker. Personally I have tried EverWeb as a replacement for iWeb and it works quite well, I do find it expensive so I have chosen to stick with iWeb. Others may find this application to be a bargain, I don't know. I don't build web sites professionally so I don't compare costs and time savings at the level. Before you land yourself in court you may want to contain your inaccurate and malicious rants to yourself and posts facts to this community in the spirit of making the community better. Have a nice day.

Dude! Take a pill. iWeb is history! Over and Out.. a big POS when it comes to following html rules and not really worth comparision. Many of us have long since gone to SandVox but now their template rules are getting old as well so some of us continue to look at things like this or WebAcappella and you don't seem to be a real programmer but someone capable of whining because the glass is half empty instead of half full. Get a life and if you're going to write a review take a moment to explain the pros vs. the cons which you clearly have forgotten to do. Nuff Said !!

@ lemonb3519 and RikWallin you don't like my review, TOO BAD! You Moronic Idiots! Your opinion could not possibly be, more insignificant! Go troll some where else.

This is an outstanding product. It's the perfect web design software for novices or people who don't want to learn complicated software like Dreamweaver. Yet, you can still do PLENTY with it.
They built this from the iWeb interface which makes it the perfect upgrade from iWeb now that Apple no longer supports that product
EverWeb is a terrific program.
It's completely intuitive. I didn't have to spend a minute reading a manual. I just downloaded it and started designing.
Get it. Use it. LOVE it!
