Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

A website in 5 steps:

The WebSite X5 secret is that it doesn’t force you to waste time learning complex software, you just follow 5 steps. Each step has been custom designed to make it easy to get truly professional results with the minimum of fuss. There’s no need to pay a website design company when you have WebSite X5. Now you can become a website guru!

1. Choose your Design

With over 1,400 templates, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to deciding on the look of your website. Each template has been professionally designed and is easily customisable to make your website unique, all without the fuss of having to learn to be a graphic designer. Even power users can benefit from WebSite X5. It’s the perfect tool for quickly creating professional website templates before making using of the built-in image, table, text effects and HTML editors. WebSite X5 even provides for the creation of an unlimited number of pages and an unlimited number of websites!

2. Layout your Website

WebSite X5 is designed to cope with everything from a single ‘hello world’ web page, to a complex site filled with hundreds of highly detailed pages. The intelligent website layout features make organising your site simple. Group similar pages into one of four levels, these are then automatically converted into the website menus. WebSite X5 also intelligently manages your website. Features such as the automatic sitemap generator makes your website easy to use for visitors and easy for Internet search engines to find.

3. Enter your Content

WebSite X5 includes a unique content entry system. The object palette supplies intelligent tools for entering every type of web page content - words, pictures, tables, animations, video, slide shows and much more. The content layout tool divides each page into content zones, onto which you drag and drop your choice of content from the object palette. WebSite X5 lets you create even the most complex of page layouts with just a few clicks.

4. Select your Advanced Features

WebSite X5 is second to none when it comes to the ease with which advanced features can be added to your website. Whether you need blogs and podcasts, a members’ area or a full e-commerce system (including the ability to take credit card payments), it is all at your fingertips. WebSite X5 is fully equipped to attract worldwide visitors with its multi-language welcome page and one-click Social Network submission function.

5. Put your site on the Internet

Once you have finished creating your website, the final step is to send it to the Internet. Using any web space, the built-in ftp engine makes it child’s play to publish your website. But it doesn’t stop there; whenever you want to update your website (for example by adding a news item), WebSite X5 intelligently sends just the updates to the web space.

5.0 out of 5 stars Creating a website could not be any easier 6 July 2009
I have tried using several software packages already which have been a nightmare, after reading some great reviews and trying Website X5 version 7 I was sold.

The software definitely lives up to its name, its easy to install, it has a built in help option and in the box there was a 150+ page manual FREE. With this version as well as creating websites, you can also create shops and blogs.

Having used version 7 I thought I would share some great improvements that I found:

> The user interface is larger than before and the instructions even easier to follow
> Creating a shop is much easier and the layout options much improved, there are also some great marketing tools included FREE
> The internal editor for photos seems to have a lot more options
> You can upload music files and also You Tube videos

I can't stress how easy this software is to use, there are lots of templates included so getting started is fast. Adding the content is simply a case of dragging and dropping. What I really loved is how easy it is to add things like music, photos and videos without having to need any technical knowledge.

Unlike a lot of the other products on the market that I have tried this software lets you create as many projects as you want and upload them all. There is no domain or hosting included but personally that suits me as there are lots of options available on the market that I was able to choose from which don't require hefty fees.

Due to my own lack of experience I was unsure how to use the built in FTP to upload my website but I had a quick look on the forum and quickly got the answers.

Verified Purchase
I had a need to create a multi page web site just recently and, at the time, had just about zero knowledge of how to build a site. This product was recommended and demo'd to me by a mate. I realised that it would enable me to achieve everything I needed to in a short space of time and so went ahead and bought it. The web site is now published and does exactly what I need it to. I'm, therefore, very pleased with my purchase and happy to recommend. In summary: great product if you don't have the time or need to learn a fully featured web site editing package.

WebSite X5 Evolution 8

This package is very easy to use, has lots of features, and it doesn't take long to learn at all (I had never created a website before). The results were stunning, the templates are very good as well, very quick to jump from one page to the next (navigation), and you get so many options with the appearances of the drop-down-menus as well, very easy to change these or to make a certain category a sub-category for example.

I have only given it 4 stars because it doesn't have Stock Control with the Shopping Cart, this is a bit of a let down, otherwise I would have given it 10 stars, that's how much I liked it! If Stock-control is NOT important to you, then this is superb!

The Shopping Cart is easy enough to use, but it doesn't let you enter a certain number of items you have in stock at all. The trouble is, if you only have 2 items in stock of a certain product, and say 5 customers buy it, you have trouble. For this reason, after I had created 3/4 of my website, I started fresh with a different package, MrSite Pro (which does have a full stock-control function).

If you have enough experience to add a different Shopping Cart Package Program to this X5 Ev8 package, then you are on to a winner, but unfortunately I was a bit at a loss to do this myself as I am not very PC literate. That's why I am not going to use X5 Ev8 for my web presence.

I really hope they will add Stock-control in future, and if they did, this would be the winning package available I think, because it was superb, love all the gallery effects as well, and inserting and changing tables were really easy to do! Making a back-up copy of your creation was also very easy.

It's just the "stock-control" that is missing I am afraid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality web building software 16 Sept. 2009
Superb software. Very easy to use. If I'd known exactly how I'd wanted the site to look, I could have had the whole thing on-line within around an hour. As it was, the basic outline was done well under that time. There is a manual with it but, to be honest, the progam is so intuitive, I've hardly glanced at it. Good stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little package 19 Nov. 2009
Website X5 is great little package for first time webpage developers. I was literally up and running within a couple of hours. The 5 steps are really easy to follow and there are plenty of templates to use. You can also find more on the website, although the free ones are rather limited in scope.
The program also allows for on-line sales with Paypal links. I must admit to being alittle disappointed that I couldn't create an availability page for an accommodation webpage (the same will apply for stock availability of products) but you can't expect too much for this price. An excellent package and great value for money. If you need a basic website, seriously think about this DIY solution before paying alot more to a webpage developer.
