Web Publishing Software Update

If you are going to develop / maintain your own website, we will come to a decision of which software to use. In that past, we normally need to consider 2 options – Adobe Dreamweaver or Microsoft Frontpage. But Microsoft has announced that it will discontinue Frontpage. Instead, they come up with 2 new software releases - Office SharePoint Designer 2007 for the enterprise information workers and Expression Web for the professional Web designer.

Adobe Dreamweaver
Dreamweaver 8 was the industry leading web development tool, a preferred choice for professional web designers and developers. But for novice, it may be too feature rich and complex. The latest version is Dreamweaver CS3. The price for a new purchase will be USD399 and USD199 for upgrades from previous versions. The new release includes CSS tools, Ajax components for building dynamic user interfaces, and intelligent integration with other Adobe software.

Microsoft Expression Web
This new software was introduced by Microsoft as a replacement of its formal Ms Frontpage. There is a 60 days free trial and new purchase will cost USD299. Existing Frontpage user may upgrade to Expression with USD99.

CoffeeCup HTML Editor 2007
More suitable for novice web designers and amateurs, this software offers powerful functionality and a straightforward and compact interface, with a generous 30-day trial. Retail price is USD49, much lower cost than Dreamweaver.


Launch of template site

With more customers inquiring about web template customization services, we have decided that its time that we start to retail templates as well.

With the launch of www.edlinktemplate.com, we hope to extend our services to customers with very limited budget.

We have listed some benefits of using templates below:

a) Low Cost
We can often reduce the cost of designing a new website using templates by 20~30%. If you have web publishing knowledge, the cost of launching a website is only the cost of template [less than SGD150] plus web hosting and domain name charges.

b) Faster Site Launch
With template customizatin, your website may be launched much earlier. We essentially cut down the time for design conceptualization.

c) Wider choice
You are no longer confined to a few choice. There are over 6,000 templates for you to choose from.

The only downside is that, your competitor may be using the same template as you. However, new templates are constantly added to our template library every day. So, there is very little chance that you may find your site similar to another company. You may also need to do some customization to the template to suit your business.
