Map of this site

This section is dedicated to SiteSpinner from  Virtual Mechanics. There are step-by-step demonstration pages here, and also pages devoted to other aspects of web design.  Although I built this site especially for SiteSpinner, nearly  everything here also applies to its big brother, Web Engine.

Don't overlook the tutorials which ship with SiteSpinner -- under the main menu Help > Tutorials.  The information in these pages is intended to supplement the tutorials and not replace them.

This site may have minor changes like rewrite a paragraph, fix links or typos, without an entry in the "Last significant updates" list below. I made most of these pages two years ago  with SiteSpinner V2.50 series, and now we are up to SS V2.70f which has some substantial improvements. And I've been slow on the updates. Consequently if you think a cunning trick that I have described here is no longer necessary with the latest version, you will probably be right.  But fortunately most things here are still valid.

Each page has a date of last change in the footer that should automatically show the date of even minor changes.
