Not user friendly  en

I bought and downloaded this so that I could build a website that I could easily see and edit! I have built a website before and I will state that this software is not user friendly! When I preview the site I cannot edit it by looking at the whole thing! I have no drag options to drag object to where I want them! Does anyone else have this issue? Is it an issue with the download? Am I being stupid, I don't know! I have read the the manual and it appears that this software is not working like it is supposed to, I spent money on this and now I am wondering if it was a waste when I could have done it for free else where! Can anyone help?

Website X5 is NOT a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) authoring tool.

Instead, you place various types of objects into ”cells” and collectively these cells become your website.

It definitely takes some getting used to.

This ”cell” approach is not for everyone.

Kim, there is definitely a "mind shift' required to use WX5, but once you grasp the concept it is faster and easier than most other solutions.

If you want to do something or cannot grasp the concept. post here (preferrably with a screen shot of the issue) and we will offer advise on how to achieve your requirements.

There are many here who will be pleased to assist, but first you must register your software (you can do this through you profile top right on this page). If you are using v12 unfortunately Incomedia can no longer help you (although we can).
