PageSpinner Extension Spins Sites

Users of PageSpinner, a user-friendly HTML editor, should note Optima System’s new Site Assistant 1.0, a PageSpinner extension that streamlines site-related operations. Features include quick image insertion, uploading multiple pages via Anarchie or Fetch, and page archiving. Site Assistant tracks settings for up to twenty sites and displays the currently active site in a limited Finder list-like view. Site Assistant also offers a rudimentary multi-file Search & Replace command. Although Site Assistant should prove handy for running small sites, it’s not fast enough to handle large sites and not up to power user standards in some areas; in particular the Search & Replace feature lacks basic options like searching for only whole words or approving changes individually. Site Assistant is free to registered users of the $25 PageSpinner. To learn more about PageSpinner, see "Spinning the Web Part I: Trade-Offs and PageSpinner" in TidBITS 384.
