Karelia Software Releases Sandvox 2.6

New "Extract Content of Website" Feature to Aid iWeb Site Migration; Now Localized in Japanese

ALAMEDA, Calif., June 9, 2012 - Karelia Software today released Sandvox 2.6, adding a new "Extract Content of Website" feature and Japanese localization to its award-winning website building software for the Mac.

Sandvox 2.6 introduces a new Extract feature that brings text and graphic content from previously published websites, such as those produced using iWeb, into a new Sandvox document. Using Extract is simple: enter the previously published website's URL and Sandvox will automatically examine the website, analyze the main content, and create corresponding pages in a new Sandvox site document suitable for continued development and publishing to a new webhost. In addition to the new Extract feature, the Sandvox 2.6 update adds Japanese localization.

"Our goal is to save our customers time and effort on what would otherwise be a fairly tedious, manual process of copying and pasting to bring over content from a previously published website," explained Dan Wood, president of Karelia Software. "Nowhere is this more true than with old iWeb sites. Due to iWeb's proprietary themes and unique page layout structure, there is really no way to precisely and directly import an iWeb site into Sandvox. The Extract feature will still save people a lot of time by providing a reasonable starting point for freshening up or even re-imagining their sites, giving them some overdue modernization.”

About Sandvox

Websites created using Sandvox automatically comply with the latest HTML5 web standard. Sandvox utilizes an architecture and editing engine which allow customers to mix and match web page content "objects" in a naturally expressive and creative way.

The Sandvox Inspector makes it easy to selectively adjust page layout, modify objects, and apply modern page features. Sandvox 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 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. Included plug-ins provide support for Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr and other social media services. In addition, a plug-in API is now available for third-party developers.
