This is an awesome piece of software that completely automates the process of creating professional and highly customizable DHTML website menus and site maps compatible with all available browsers. The program can also create a site search engine customized for your needs to the smallest detail.

Very easy to use and with a wealth of configurations to allow you to create precisely the menu you want Site Xpert is the answer to many a webmasters prayers. You can start with the "Assistant" to get you going and then move on to the layout wizard when you have a better grasp of things or go through the excellent tutorials and help file..

What I just loved about this program is the simplicity. You instruct Site Xpert to spider the website or local file and it finds all the relevant files and takes the name from the title, or description. It takes seconds and then you can fine tune. Once you are done just "Generate" and you will be told what files to upload. The menus it produces are compatible with all browsers (Internet Explorer 4.x, 5.x, 6.x, Netscape 4.x, 6.x, Opera 6.x, 7.x, Mozilla 1.x), and tested on all platforms (Unix, Mac OS, Windows). Included are 60 DHTML menu schemes(all customizable) including 44 bitmap schemes which surely is enough for even the most discerning amongst you. Here are just some of the features

User can scroll between popup menu items if the menu doesn't fit on the screen. Great performance even with large menus (menus are loaded and built on demand). You can easily include any number of horizontal / vertical DHTML drop down menus into a single web page or multiple web pages. Optional creation of PHP / ASP / SSI / JSP / FrontPage / ColdFusion includes. You can apply cool effects to the menu (such as partial transparency or fading). With automatic updates, your copy of SiteXpert will be always up-to-date to make sure your drop down menus will be supported by the latest browsers. you can create as many DHTML menus, for as many web sites as you like, when you purchase a single license!

This is an absolute "Must Have" in any designers toolkit.
