Features as Described
I can’t tell if the add-ins are there, but hey, everything else was- except they probably have’nt reviewed every single Menu creator in the world. 8

Once again, I have made a video showing how to do simple things in this software. Unfortunately my internet connection is slowly uploading. Here’s the link to follow when it’s done: http://mafia-penguin.com/dottech/Menu.flv. Warning: File is 15+ MB!

Installation was fast and easy. The software prompts you with a menu to select a template, like so:
After that you can select an option and just start clicking things- It’s not dangerous. To change something, just double click it and type in what you want it to say in the bottom. Here’s a pic to explain:
You can export it via File>Publish, and to acess things like the Google Sitemap, click on Advanved.
