What kind of websites were you planning to build?

I'm a visual artist, and had made myself a website with iWeb to give my work an online presence. With Mobile Me shutting down, I needed to find software that would allow me to remake my site.

How did you hear about Sandvox?

In google I found Mac user forums discussing replacements for iWeb. Since I don't know code I narrowed my search to software that didn't demand that process.

What made you decide to get Sandvox?

I chose Sandbox because I learned from online reviews and commentary that it was the most "iWeb-like" in terms of use. I wanted to design it myself but don't know code and I knew I would probably need technical support. Forums rated Sandvox support as excellent which influenced my decision.

Now that you have Sandvox, what do you like about it?

I wanted a plain black background, which is best for my design requirements, and best for displaying artwork. While I didn't find that with the basic themes, I did find a plug-in I could work with. I experimented first with a Sandbox trial version and found it straightforward and easy to use.

What would be a good way to search for a program like Sandvox?
