SiteXpert is a uniquely effective tool in creating the core navigation components of any Web site:

a) a site map

b) a search engine

c) navigation systems including menus

SiteXpert truly automates the process of creating customized and professionally-looking navigation systems for any Web site that will be fully compatible with all available browsers.

SiteXpert provides three valuable capabilities rolled into one effective desktop tool: site mapping, search engine generation, and effective DHTML menu generation.

SiteXpert achieves its magic by either directly crawling the structure of your Web site, by reading a directory structure or by reading an XML data source.

Site Maps are considered an essential part of usable Web sites. They provide users with an overview of a site and allow for easy and fast navigation. SiteXpert can create a complete, professional Web Site Map for you in one minute.

The information needed for Site Map construction is automatically derived from the structure of your Web site or your local directory. You can specify the Look and Feel of your Site Map by choosing one of several fully customizable styles (e.g. DHTML pull-down menus, static and dynamic trees, multiple column lists). Additionally you can apply different schemes of colors and fonts, which also allow for easy and quick design changes later on.

SiteXpert is especially helpful if you have little time available to create your Site Map. Besides, it is ideal for creating your FIRST Site Map since it offers a comprehensive wizard that guides you step-by-step through the process.

SiteXpert also supports the automated creation of index pages and customizable search engines (with multi-language support!).

All mentioned features are available in the standard edition.
