Pop-up Menu Creator is a DHTML navigation system for webpages; it replaces cumbersome tables and difficult image maps with an easy to read and understand, compact navigation system. AND the program itself is so easy to use that a child could handle it!

The user interface is very clear and concise; a wizard-type system guides you through the steps necessary to create your own popup menu. Pop-Up will also add the necessary coding to your pages for you! Pop-Up comes with considerable user information, plus the website is packed with helpful hints. Mr. Haritou is also very consumer-oriented and answered my mailings post haste.

I can't remember when I've been so impressed with an inexpensive piece of freeware/shareware! If you are just going to use the program for your own site, you could easily make do with the freeware version (as long as you don't mind the "Menu Created with Popup" ad at the top of every menu created). If you don't want the little ad, a mere $20 purchases a home user license, which allows you to customize the header, change the color schemes, and save your menus for future editing (you can't create menus for others with this license). A webpage designer's license is $100; this type of license allows a webpage designer to provide Pop-Up Menus as a free service for pages he/she designs (but does not allow him/her to sell the creation of Pop-Up Menus).

A terrific program at a reasonable price ... I highly recommend PopUp!
