I used to use webplus for Web design, what should I use now?

Recommended Posts

Can you please help me decide what to use now that webplus X software is old?  Or is it still alright for basic webpage creation?

Yes!

Are you aware of the Community Plus forums for those Serif products which are now Legacy?  If not, I would suggest you register at and repost there; there are a number of experienced WebPlus users there who would be happy to help you with specific problems.

Take a look at this thread on CommunityPlus: What would you recommend to replace WebPlus X8

It’s all right if you don’t mind having static pages (preferably separate sets for desktop and mobile use, and therefore more tedious to build and maintain) rather than having responsive or adaptive pages which display well on any device.

If you're on a Mac, don't want to pay subscription prices, and desire a visual design tool that does not require knowledge of HTML, CSS or Javascript, I would recommend that you take a look at Sparkle. https://sparkleapp.com

Otherwise, if you don't mind paying subscription prices, I've heard great things about Webflow. https://webflow.com

RapidWeaver is another good web design app for the Mac, but you'll need some of the available plugins for it to really make it worthwhile for a designer:

Without those plugins (Stacks, and Foundation in particular) it is a bit more limited to working within the context of pre-designed templates, which is fine for some users but rather limiting for the rest of us.

The OP is a WebPlus user. As WebPlus only works on Windows, it’s unlikely (albeit not impossible) that she’s using a Mac.

Agreed, that's why I didn't reply to that earlier until someone else jumped in with it.  I had thought of pointing out the same in my earlier reply but for some reason appear to have left it out.
