I have no affiliation with Project Seven other than as a very satisfied customer.
If more people like me took a vociferous public stand endorsing good products, maybe there wouldn't be so much crapware in the web design marketplace.
I really don't know what to say about these PVII guys. To quote a recent Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy press conference, when he was asked to describe how well Aaron Rodgers is playing the quarterback position in the 2011 season, he said "I'm out of words."
Likewise with PVII...
Well, for a lot of reasons. Back in the days when I was burning out trying to produce W3C-compliant HTML and CSS with a tool whose name I would rather not mention that I ever used in public <cough>NetObjects Fusion</cough>, I decided to bite the bullet, pay the big money, and switch to Dreamweaver (heretoafter referred to as DW).
And that marked my beginning of a long relationship with that company. Frankly, without those guys and all their products I've bought and used since, I'm not sure where I or K-C-P.com would be today.
For sure, this web site would not exist. Neither would any of the sites in my portfolio.
The products are only part of the story. PVII should also rightfully boast of extraordinary customer support.
Project Seven does customer support the exact same way I would love my own business to do. I don't have their resources, so they will always beat me.
Their Support discussion groups are a great resource. Ever since I started out with "PMM", I have read every post on their NNTP server, and have posted the odd helpfully-intended reply from time to time.
When I have run into challenges with the PVII products I own, that's where I go first for help.
One time when I booked a day off my day job to get a crunch deadline project completed, I found myself stumped with making one of their products do what I needed. So I called them.
Here is the short list of the companies who have provided me with telephone tech support even approaching the level I have had with PVII over many years.
That leaves out a huge number of companies whose technical support lines I have used, and whose customer support frankly sucks.
The good news is that you can count K-C-P.com as one entity who will never —
