SitegrinderBlue is the next generation of the award winning website creation tool and Adobe Photoshop plugin, which was originally created by MediaLab and was famous around the world among graphic and website designers.
After an unfortunate turn of events MediaLab closed its doors in 2014 and the future of the great Sitegrinder 3 was not yet decided.
After some rounds of negotiations CADUET CORP acquired an exclusive license to the source code of SiteGrinder so CADUET CORP would take Sitegrinder 3 under its portfolio and could continue developing this state of the art plugin aiming to take the platform to the next level.
Most common Questions:
What happens then with Sitegrinder 3.5 and sitegrinder Users ?
Once we have setup the infrastructure to serve both OLD and NEW Sitegrinder users, we will compile a version of Sitegrinder that will point to the new servers with the license check in place and we will release a new version of sitegrinder that will include some bug fixes to the current version of Sitegrinder.
Will there be support for SitegrinderBLUE users?
Yes!! We will build a portal where ALL REGISTERED SitegrinderBLUE users will have an account and will be able to open a support ticket if they have a problem with the software. The support plans price will vary depending on which support plan is chosen by the customer, and there will be a yearly subscription fee that will be set in place for those interested in having updates and the latest version of the software.
What about Forums Documentation and the Webinars and Tutorials?
We will try as much as we can to export the old forums and information that we can gather into the new system, but that will all depends if we can export all the data from the old ZenDesk system.
Webinars and Tutorials will have to wait until the new version of Sitegrinder; "SitegrinderBlue" is released.
What will be the price of SitegrinderBlue and the price of the upgrade?
We will raise the price of the product for new customers, this is to be able to earn enough money so the development costs of the product are able to be paid with the license sales of the product. This raise in costs will not affect current Sitegrinder 3.x users, they will pay an upgrade fee but it will be exactly the same as if they were paying for the Sitegrinder 3.5-4.0 upgrade.
This upgrade fee rebate for current customers will ONLY cover the first version of SitegrinderBLUE. That means if you are not willing to upgrade from sitegrinder 3.5 to SitegrinderBLUE when the next version of SitegrinderBlue comes to the market you will not be entitled to the rebate for that upgrade, and will have to pay the normal upgrade fee that the new customers will have to pay for that upgrade.
What about support or Paid Support Plans ?
We will have several level of paid support plans, with the yearly subscription fee we will include the Basic level of support. We will have 4 different support plans:
Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum the details of these plans will be made public later.
Unfortunately people that do not pay the yearly update subscription or buy one of the support plans will not have access to the ticket system and therefore will only rely on the support or questions answered in the public forums.
The answers in the public forums will take some time because we will need to deal with the paid support first and only when there is time slowly answer the questions that might be in the forums.
We wish we could give support to everyone but unfortunately to be able to keep SitegrinderBLUE getting better every day we need the support of our customers and the financial support of the paid subscriptions and therefore we will concentrate in servicing those customers first.
If there is time we will then answer the questions in the forums.
Why is it that you build a tool for making Websites and your own site is so simple?
Well there are many reasons for that, among them are the following:
1) We are high-tech engineers that specialize in developing and implementing software technologies, we are not design artists. That is why we build sitegrinderblue and its features and our customers make it shine.
There are thousands of cool professionally designed websites created with sitegrinder, which you can see following the links in the upcoming section of “Websites Created with Sitegrinder”.
2) We want to concentrate out time and effort to bring you the best technologies available in the market so your design can really stand out from the crowd, so instead of using allot of time to create and maintain a really cool and complex website; the time we have we rather use it to create tutorials, documentation and samples so you can master the system and create your own cool sites.
3) Our site doesn’t need to shine as long as yours does.
When can we get SitegrinderBLUE ?
We are working really hard to get things sorted out in regards to development licenses, servers, agreements to bring you the best of the best in regards to new technologies.
This means that it will take a little time before we are 100% up and running but we are working as fast as we can to bring you the next version of the product as fast as possible.
You can follow the news here in the portal and we will be sending news as well to all registered customers so they can follow our progress in this matter.

This is one of the most exciting parts of the rebirth of Sitegrinder in to SitegrinderBLUE. Our plans in regards to new functionality and features are huge, and we believe it will change the web design market around the world.
We are gathering ideas that our customers gave us throughout the years, looking to new market trends, bringing new technologies to the table and with the Goal that after sometime we will have a product that will blow everything else in the market out of the water !!.
It is impossible to implement everything at once so we need to decide which features and technologies will be implemented first. And then, we will slowly start implementing everything else we have planned with each release.
FUTURE FEATURES TO BE IMPLEMENTED IN COMMING VERSIONS OF SITEGRINDERBLUE
CONTROLS, CONTROLS AND MORE CONTROLS!!
BRAND NEW CMS SYTEM!!
Easier to use than ever for your customers and with many of the features you always want it.
ADOBE MUSE? .... Forget about it, not only what they call their CMS system is not on the customer’s server, but you need to disclose all the details and access codes to the customers FTP server. Every customer is depending on that cloud based adobe server, which takes every aspect of personalization out of the picture and their interface for doing changes will never be as intuitive as ours.
One of our main goals is to be able to provide to SitegrinderBLUE users the ability to create responsive designs. That is why all the new controls that SitegrinderBLUE will add to its collection will from birth be designed to support responsive design layouts.
Our goal is to be able to provide both responsive and none responsive web designs, and depending which option you choose to go with, you will be presented with the type of controls and features of SitegrinderBLUE you will be able to use for that particular layout.
We know that this is a much desired feature, so we will do our best to incorporate this functionality in the product in a version of SitegrinderBLUE as soon as possible.
This is not a priority feature but something we are looking at implementing in future versions of SitegrinderBLUE, we will like to implement a standalone search engine that can be incorporated into a sitegrinderBLUE web.
We will also look the possibility of adding database support to SitegrinderBLUE designs, though either an embedded database system, support for classic database systems like MS-SQL and MYSQL or both.
We will try to change the ecommerce integration module into a standard module that will be able to integrate with most Ecommerce platforms in the market today that do provide and HTTP POST/GET interface. In this way the availability and number of ecommerce solutions you will be able to integrate SitegrinderBLUE with will grow 10 fold.

We are hunting right know for the resources we need to make this happen and at the same time are working with the resources we have at the moment to build the building blocks for the features yet to come.
