Second Site is a great program that automatically creates some of the best-looking genealogy web pages I have ever seen. It is a genealogy web site builder for use with The Master Genealogist, a leading genealogy program for Windows. Second Site creates HTML (the most popular format of pages on the World Wide Web) in any of an almost infinite number of styles and formats, as specified by the user. It generates either narrative or grid style person pages, a master index, a surname index, and source pages. Best of all, the user doesn’t need to know anything about HTML programming and the creation of Web pages. Second Site takes care of all. Minimal technical expertise is required.
John Cardinal, author of Second Site, now has issued a new version of the program. Here is John's announcement:
Announcing Second Site Version 2.2!
The latest release of Second Site includes two big new features: interactive maps and interactive calendars. Both features use events in your TMG project combined with hand-crafted content to enrich your site. The Map feature includes support for custom maps using one of four mapping services: Google Maps, MapQuest, Virtual Earth, and Yahoo! Maps.
There are more than 20 other new features and extensions, most of which were based on requests from users. These include enhancements to framed sites, a more flexible Picture User Item, new Themes, and more.
This upgrade is free for registered users. You can read more about the new features and download the upgrade from the latest issue of Second Site News: http://www.johncardinal.com/ss/ssn037.htm.
