View Full Version : Embedded Design Software

I am looking for either a software suite or a specific program that will allow visitors to create a page on my site (along the same lines as Geocities did/does). It should be pretty simple for the customer but be customizable for the admin.
I am sure that I could search the web and find something (tried but obviously looking for the wrong thing) but I figured I would use the mass knowledge at hand. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Try this in your search "wysiwyg web page editor" it should return some hits. Here are some results I got.

They have two versions one is an Applet and the other is DHTML the second runs only on IE 5.0+, Netscape 7.1 andMozilla comptible. The first is platform independent and cross-browser compatible. Cost is anywhere from $60 to $2,975 depending on what you are doing. Both have demos.
Pretty much the same but cost more.

Used to see some free ones out there but did not find them this time. I well say that the free ones where based on the concepts of the dhtml editor so where reliant on the browser being IE 5.0+ or Netscape 7.1+ which can be a limitation.

Checked out the Elite Site Builder and the demo seemed to work except that the navigation was not very good on it. Not sure users would find it very intuitive. I did download a copy and will most likely take a look at the code tommarow. It was not wysiwyg but more like a striped down version of the File Manager in our Site Manager but could be usefull.
