A Comprehensive Set of Website X5 tutorials in English Please  en

I used to own a similar software to this by a company called Xsite Pro. They had a series of step by step tutorials showing you how you could use all the features of their software. Unfortunately, the creator of Xsite Pro became ill and had to close down his business.

This is when I turned to Website X5. I find a lot of the WX5 features are self explanatory, but it has taken me many hours of experimentation to get them exactly how I'd like them to work. For example, a simple feature like the Blog took me a while to make it look smart and have the pictures look presentable. Also, it would be great if there were more detailed help in setting up the shopping cart, because at the moment I have to use external carts. How do you set up a database to link to the cart? Plus, how do you create an automated  sign up to a members area of a website (how do you set it up and link it to a database)? 

For me and I'm sure many others, would benefit greatly from having detailed video tutorials of Website X5 in action. On YouTube, there are many step by step videos helping people build sites with the likes of WordPress, Wix, Duda, Squarespace etc. I think if Website X5 did the same it would send sales through the roof and give a fantastic service to your loyal customers.  

PS. One of the reasons I haven't purchased Webanimator yet is because of the lack of explanation of how it actually works. I've looked at the few videos of it action and I have no idea how to use it.

Hi Elisa 

I have studied the the links you included in your answer many times before, but both are not clear enough for me to set up a database that links with Website X5. 

If someone could do a video tutorial showing the steps it would be much appreciated.

All the best

John
