I like SiteStudio. It's clean and simple.

I figured it out hot to change the text size.

First configure the Text Edit app.

Open Text Edit > Preferences > Under "New Document" select "Plain text"
Under "Open and Save" select "Ignore Rich Text" and "Ignore HTML".

Export your Site Studio web site to a folder on your computer. Open this folder. Your will see a file called "styles.css".

Use Safari (or similar) to open this file. Select all the text and paste it into Text Edit.

Scroll down to where you see "TextStyle" and where you see "font-size: 12px;" change the number to 18 (or whatever).

Save this Text Edit file with exactly the same name as before i.e. styles.css and replace the old file.

That's it.

You can also fiddle with other things if you want to like text colour if you know the code for the colour you want.

I've been looking for something better than Dreamweaver and this looks like it. That is really sweet of Tommy to leave this wonderful Mac program FREE for anyone to use. I just downloaded it and made a little photo page in 10 minutes! I couldn't believe the ease of use. I'll write more as I go along. The only thing I couldn't find was for size/type of text - - but I'll find it. I might even read "help". Thanks, Tommy, wherever you are.

I meant to say "better than RAPIDweaver" (not Dreamweaver. Dreamweaver is excellent but that's on my other computer).

I wish that Site Studio becomes open source, so that it can be improved.

Seconded.

From what I can determine, author Tommy Pavlicek was a recent high school graduate who grew disenchanted with software development after RapidWeaver stole Site Studio's thunder. He appears to have moved on ... not just to university, but to a lucrative career as a world-class poker player!

It's really a shame, though: this unfairly-overlooked app fairly drips with elegance. It hums along just fine under 10.4.11 and packs some amazing capabilities, given its tiny footprint.

Runs fine on my MacBookPro, OS X 10.4.11, as well.

FWIW, I've just now uploaded a copy of Site Studio to the MacUpdate server so it will always be available.

This is a really easy to use app to make great looking websites in just a few minutes.

Below someone said you are not able to change font, and font size. That statement is FALSE. You can change font and its size, just sorta hidden :)

What's the use of this software???

How is it possible to pretend this is a "revolution" (cf. the company web site), to affirm this is an editor/site creator, while basic items are impossbile!!!???

Key & vital points that should be adressed include:
* inability to choose a font (hard to believe);
* inability to choose a font isze (hard to believe);
* inability to add a table (hard to believe);
* bugs when adding pictures.

Cost of use (a.k.a ease of use) is very high, as many basic actions require painful, time-and-energy-wasting steps.

Example? A vital operation (adding a page) is not possible with lifesaving keyboard shortcuts. But not only that: it has to use space-wasting menu (listing the 8 page types through too big a list), and the user has to select each and every time the page type, as no default exists!

Adding a couple of pages, and apparently no-brainer task, is incredibely painful and irritating.

Why not have a floating palette with the different page types, always available on-hand, and also keyboard-shortcut friendly?


The only use of this tool could be to create a nice canvas/general structure (nice themes included, one of the few positives!), then edit it in a real web editor.

Please consider adding drag-and-drop support to the photo gallery tool. It's pretty tedious to have to manually select each picture individually through Choose dialog boxes.

Site Studio the best HTML Editor for creating a HomePage within an hour!
And the best: It doesn't need an external FTP-Client
Just a wonderful app!

Better think before you pay for an registration number. This program crashed many times and had to start over and over again. Maybe they make it stable before asking money.

As a fellow software developer I really hate to see bug reports in this forum. Take the time to send a note to the developer and describe the problems you're having.

If they don't respond then you can slander them all you want, but you might find out that they are willing to help you and give you the chance to write a glowing review about how helpful they were.

Just a though.

Whoa whoa WHOA! That's a huge improvement over the first release. All the bugs I mentioned in my review of 1.0 were fixed. The interface was cleaned up too.

What was a very good app is now a GREAT app. Site Studio is nothing short of impressive, and, hands down, the easiest-to-use web editor that you can find for any system.

This is a dang cool program. I have looked all over the web for something like this that is easy to use (especially the photo gallery feature) and they are few and far between.

The only thing I wish it had was a little calendar page where you could have a little graphical calendar that people could flip through and see what's coming up.

Thanks.
