Karelia Software Delivers Easy Transition From iWeb to Sandvox

Instant 25% Crossgrade Discount, Plus New Transition-from-iWeb Online Help Resources Usher iWeb Users Into Modern, HTML5-compliant Sandvox Era

Alameda, Calif. - July 12, 2011 - Karelia Software today announced a limited-time Crossgrade Discount on Sandvox of 25% off through July 31, 2011, by using the coupon code 'iWeb Graduate' on checkout.

The 25% crossgrade special applies to all new licenses for Sandvox 2, including Single User, Household and Site licenses. In addition, the Sandvox 2.1 update also announced today is available immediately for free to currently registered customers of Sandvox 2 (see related release).

"Karelia and the Sandvox community have happily welcomed iWeb graduates for years now," said Dan Wood, president of Karelia Software. "With the announced discontinuation of MobileMe, popular for hosting iWeb-created sites, many people are re-thinking their entire set-up. Sandvox clearly addresses current and future needs, with the flexibility and ease of use people seek, while generating HTML5-compliant code automatically."

"Typically, we advise iWeb graduates to place a forwarding message for a long time so their readers can move their bookmarks over," Wood added. "This situation is a little more urgent. As such, we advise people to make their move soon, so others can update links and bookmarks ASAP before the lights go out at MobileMe."

A 'Transitioning from iWeb to Sandvox' guide is available today at:  <http://www.karelia.com/iwebgrad>.

The recently announced Sandvox 2 represents a huge leap forward for anyone using a Mac to easily create powerful websites. All websites created using Sandvox 2 automatically support the latest HTML5 web standard. Sandvox 2 introduced a completely new architecture and new editing engine, which allows customers to mix and match web page content "objects" in a much more naturally expressive and creative way.

Sandvox 2 also introduced a new design chooser and a much more powerful Inspector that makes it easy to selectively adjust page layout, modify objects, and apply modern page features. Sandvox 2 includes the latest version of the Karelia iMedia Browser, an open source contribution which is now a staple in many popular Mac apps.

For the power user, a new Raw HTML object handles direct placement, including live resizing, of any HTML, JavaScript, jQuery, PHP or other inserted web code, such as popular embed codes provided by other sites. New plug-ins provide support for Facebook and Twitter. In addition, a plug-in API is now available for third-party developers.

All of the new features and improvements in Sandvox 2 are designed to give the modern website builder more flexibility than ever.
