SoftSite v1.1 is a multi-browser compatible perl script that quickly and easily permits you to set up and maintain an extensive and well organized shareware or freeware directory/archive under Windows or Linux with a minimum of effort on your part. The listed software files can either be stored on your server (archive) or linked from the author's website (directory). SoftSite v1.1 is highly flexible and completely generic so that it can be used by virtually anyone with very little modification. This greatly improved version is completely customizable via a small CSS file (no more repetitive editing!). Also included in this new and improved version is support for a greater number of software platforms and licenses, an 'awards' section and a 'news' section. Finally, using CSS, we've made SoftSite v1.1 even more multi-browser compatible and we've added a lot of cool things like mouseovers, custom cursors, IE scollbars, form backgrounds and much more. The online demo is intentionally "tacky" in order to show you just how extensively SoftSite v1.1 can be customized but you can customize it any way you like. SoftSite v1.1 was painstaking designed from the ground up to be both feature-rich and user-friendly. Visitors can rate programs, write and submit their own software reviews, report dead links, participate in polls, contribute articles to the weekly newsletter and much more. The admin page features a built-in newsletter/banner manager which makes sending out newsletters to multiple recipients and managing advertising banners a breeze. A powerful search engine with indexing and advanced search capability is also built into the script. SoftSite v1.1 can be used alone or as the perfect compliment to any existing site looking for high traffic or product branding and each of the 564 html pages used by the script contains unique, binominal and trinominal keywords for maximum traffic generation.
