San Diego, CA (Gawkwire.com) WebAssist today announced SiteAssist Professional, the next evolution of their best-selling SiteAssist product. SiteAssist Professional provides incredible new functionalities to build entire CSS-based sites, complete with navigation and personal customization to pages, in just minutes.
Web professionals continue to embrace the power of CSS in their development, but are still encumbered by the time and process inherent with it. To solve the challenge of creating smooth-flowing sites, SiteAssist Professional walks web designers and developers through the building of a CSS site from beginning to end, allowing them to build CSS sites easily and without the hurdles.
SiteAssist Professional delivers web standards compliance and expertly designed and full-featured web pages, integrated with drop-down navigation for easy web site creation, publishing, and highly-flexible customization options. In addition to the 16 included expertly-crafted layouts, SiteAssist Professional users can use designs created in Eric Meyer’s CSS Sculptor, a WebAssist extension for Adobe Dreamweaver and Microsoft Expression Web, or from their own Dreamweaver templates.
"CSS is, undeniably, one of the most efficient and flexible ways to build sites today, but it isn’t without its limitations," said Hieu Bui, President, WebAssist. "SiteAssist Professional seeks to help developers, both professional and beginner alike, harness the power of CSS easily and utilize their resources more effectively with customization of templates and easy navigation options."
The SiteAssist wizard makes site creation point-and-click simple. In the wizard, SiteAssist users first select from a variety of industry-specific Web site structures including those for clubs or associations, consultants, education, medical professionals, non-profits and real estate. A full range of layouts, fonts, color and navigations are available in the second step of the wizard; users are free to mix-and-match to create their unique designs. Page layouts are assigned in the next step: a complete slate of page types, also known as information architecture wireframes, is included. Entire new branches of the site can be added with the click of a mouse. After the site is created, it can be modified for complete customization directly within Dreamweaver.

* Totally new engine – rebuilt from the ground up
