You want to create your own stunning websites on your Mac, and you want the pride of knowing that you did it all by yourself!

Sandvox is the perfect website building tool for everyone, from novices to veteran web jockeys! With Sandvox you get loads of pre-made templates and website designs, giving you a huge head start in getting your site up and running. Just add your own unique flare and you're well on your way to creating your online presence. Plus, Sandvox produces websites that are already configured to be easily indexed by all of the major search engines. After all, what use is having a website if people aren't going to be able to find it? Sandvox even gives you helpful tips on how to improve your site's search engine ranking, virtually guaranteeing higher visitor traffic than if you tried to program it yourself!

Everything you need to build your own website is here in Sandvox! Add text, images, movies, and more simply by dragging and dropping from iPhoto, the Finder, or the integrated media browser. You even benefit from a real-time preview that changes with every edit that you make! And with the Publishing Assistant, pushing your newly-created website out to the Internet using FTP, SFTP, MobileMe, and WebDAV is a piece of cake!

kj Bill kjbill bill Any sales on the PRO version?

Dan Wood Actually, yes! The same coupon code gives you a similar discount on the Pro edition.

Kj Bill Thanks for the reply!

What is the coupon code?

kj bill Hi Dan,
By the way, is the source code standard?

Is it compatible with dreamweaver?
I can see an advantage to this if needed to convert a website for any reason. Peace of mind!

Dan Wood The coupon code is listed when you click the "Buy Now" button.

The HTML that Sandvox generates is as close to web-standards as we can. However, DreamWeaver is a completely different program, almost comparing apples and oranges. Dreamweaver is more like baking a cake with flower, eggs, sugar, etc.; Sandvox is like baking a cake from a cake mix. :-)

kj bill I understand. My experience tells me that we web design websites, you need to be ready for anything. We like to stick to standard code for that reason. I really like Sandvox. Its very intuitive. I really don't need it since I use Dreamweaver, but I can see where it can come in handy for me.
I would like to get it. I just need that the exported code is easily transferrable to Dreamweaver and that its standard complaint code.

Dan Wood Yeah, some people do that kind of thing

Curt Fieder v2? If not, would one get a free upgrade to v2?

Nico Westerdale @KJ - All our deals work through the 'Buy Now' button. And Check out the Dashboard for previews and more loot!

Dan Wood Curt, yes, v2 is close enough around the corner that purchasers of v1 now will be getting v2 automatically.

Curt Fiedler Can you give me any idea what your upgrade price will be? :-)
Mar 10 2011 at 2:10pm Copy Link
Dan Wood Curt - there is no upgrade. People who bought licenses to Sandvox starting near the beginning of January have already been getting licenses that work for Sandvox 1 *and* 2.
Karelia Software - Mar 10 2011 at 2:13pm Copy Link
Curt Fiedler So, you mean that you won't have a discounted upgrade price for longer term users then - we should anticipate purchasing a complete new license?

I'm not complaining, just trying to decide whether I should purchase this deal.
Mar 10 2011 at 2:21pm Copy Link
Dan Wood I'm really confused! What do you mean by discounted upgrade price? Upgrade from what to what?
Karelia Software - Mar 10 2011 at 2:23pm Copy Link
Curt Fiedler I've had two Sandvox Pro licenses since the app was released (was a beta tester). I'm asking if I will have to buy a whole new license for Version 2 or will there be some upgrade fee instead.

If there is an upgrade fee, will it be less that purchasing this BitsDuJour deal?

Thank you!
Mar 10 2011 at 2:39pm Copy Link
Dan Wood Ah, I understand. We haven't set up the upgrade costs from V1 to V2 yet, so I don't have a definitive answer for you, sorry! :-) Probably the numbers will be pretty close, but I don't really have a sense of which one would be greater or less. Flip a coin to decide? :-)

kj bill If the good 40% off sale from yesterday comes back, please drop me an email.
