Lockout is a fun new security program from Sausage Software. LockOut is a small Java applet that sits on your web page. When users click the images in the correct sequence, it passes a URL to the applet, and takes you to a new page. If they click the wrong sequence, it will take them to another URL. A useful and secure way of controlling access to parts of your site. SiteFX is a collection of compact JavaTM-based applications, each of which performs its "specialty" very well. Thanks to the intuitive interface and superb built- in Help files, SiteFX is very user-friendly. In one handy bundle, SiteFX provides efficient tools that are all you need to bring your Web pages to life: Egor - the world's first commercial Java animator application! Use Egor's simple frame-by-frame assembler to create your own Java animations; add sounds, associate URLs with each frame or with the whole animation. Egor is the simplest and most effective way to get your page moving and shaking with Java! Clikette allows you to create pictorial 3D buttons that can be linked to multiple URL destinations. In short, this means that you can now make The Button That Launched A Thousand Links! Well, maybe not a thousand, but 50 at a time is probably enough to keep you and your Webpage readers cruising the Internet in finest-kind style. Bookworm is a JAVA based program that allows users to add multi-link jump boxes to Web pages. Each window list, scrolling window or pull-down menu box can contain a virtually infinite number of links to different URL destinations. Swami - spectacular animated text effects for Web pages.
Swami is a snaglet designed to take a text string and animate it in any one of twelve different ways. The fabulous Swami will help you make your message jump, ripple, expand, slide around and generally create arresting and unusual effects on your Web page.
Imagewiz does for images what Sausage Software's Swami did for text effects. Rather than animating complex sequences of frames, Imagewiz allows you to specify effects for your images. Available as ImageWiz (20 effects) and ImageWiz Plus (40 effects)! Gatling is Sausage Software's latest FTP tool, designed to simplify life for novice and expert Net users alike. Gatling, as its name suggests, allows the rapid-fire, repeated transmission of a file by the FTP protocol. It solves the common problem of getting files on remote servers to regularly update as content changes.
How do you do this? Specify the local file and the remote host, then choose the interval you want in seconds, minutes, hours or days. Click the upload button and Gatling takes over, firing the file at the server for as long as you want.
FrameGang - the hot new Web design tool from Sausage Software that brings frames to your webpages. With some basic knowledge of HTML frames and your trusty mouse, you can point and click your way through frame generation for your Web page(s). Frames allows you to display multiple HTML documents on one Web page, and allow hyperlinks in one frame to interact with another frame, opening up exciting possibilities. CrossEye - CrossEye is an image-map editing utility that enables you to create clickable hotspots on graphic images , without having to use the CGI script that is normally required to perform this task. These hotspots may be linked to URL addresses, providing your webpageÕs readers with an instant jump to any website(s) you have chosen. CrossEye allows everyone to create "client-side" clickable image maps which do not require any additional CGI scripts or special expertise! Broadway - Times Square - New York. Picadilly Circus - London. Broadway - Sausage Software. What do they have in common? Among other things, information scrolling in flashing lights. Broadway gives you a Java-powered marquee, with total control over the text and how it scrolls. You can even add your own graphics to the scrolling display. Creating a personal Webpage that's both interesting and visually appealing is still something of an artform, and considering that very few people have bothered to apply even the most basic design principles to their Webstuff, a heavily-assisted HTML document composer such as Dummy is long overdue. First of all, this Snaglet is not some bizarre new variant of HotDog. Dummy has been designed to take first-time Webpage authors firmly by the hand, providing a step-by-step guide to Webpage creation using pre-generated style templates and a range of user-selectable options. Flash is a user-friendly little tool that allows you to display scrolling text on a browser's status line - sort of like tickertape. And NEW in Flash 2.0, you can pause the scrolling to display status-bar URLs. It's a great way to pass subtle bits of info to your viewers! Mousetrap brings true user interactivity to your web pages. Armed with only the barest essentials of HTML you can create Java enhanced web pages that play sounds and change pictures or text, depending only on where the surfer moves their mouse. Next time you hit roadworks on the information superhighway, Jackhammer will help you dig yourself out of the hole. Whenever you find a site that's too busy to get on to, or an FTP server that's always full, paste the URL into Jackhammer. Set it hammering and it will try the sites until it can get on - and then launch a new browser window for you or automatically download the file! Here at Sausage Software, we have recognised that users on the Internet want sites that have the maximum impact (ie loads of graphics), but take the least amount of time to load. A bit of a paradox really, considering that rich graphics files take the longest to load.
Bandwidth Buster is the latest Internet tool from Sausage Software that will minimise the size of your web site files, and insert tags and features that will speed the rate that users are able to view your site.
Weenies - cool images ready for animating. Sausage Software is proud to introduce you to "Weenies" - groovy little sets of ready-made GIF images for you to plonk into your animations for your Web pages. Each Weenie pack consists of four or five sets of GIF images related by theme. They're all professionally designed, with that special Sausage Software look and feel about them. These transparent GIFs have been skillfully optimised for maximum colour & image display quality while retaining small file sizes.
