How does the web app look and feel to use?

It is important to note that the content editing tools will only work with Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers. There are just over 30 site design themes available for use. During customization, the site is sluggish and slow to respond throughout the process.

The text editor is easy to use and resembles a stripped down version of Microsoft Word. The site has a built in recycle bin for deleted content. Photo upload speed is good.

One drawback is the sample text in each layout. It is nonsense text and must be removed piece by piece from each page. While it is interesting to see what the site will look like when it is populated, this is tedious.

There are no options for adding widgets or customizing the theme that has been chosen without downloading the .zip file and adding HTML. If a user has no basic programming knowledge, they will be unable to change the template at all.

The bottom line is that this is a very simple tool for those who are satisfied with the pre-made themes and formats. For those wanting more customization, this application is not the best choice.

How does the registration process work?

First, a username, password, and email are required. After several minutes of waiting for the site to respond, users are taken to the homepage that is ready for customization.

What does it cost to use the application?

There are no fees associated with Sauropol.

Who would you recommend the application to?

This is a utility only for those wishing to create a very basic website. The tools are very easy to use, but limited in scope. Users with basic HTML knowledge would do better with another service, rather than downloading and altering the templates provided here.

  • Free to use
  • Easy interface
  • Templates available
  • Built in recycle bin
