Is AFFINITY Designer the replecement for WebPlus?

Recommended Posts

I started using WebPlus Started and moved to X5, X7 and finally to X8.  Been very happy with the program UNTIL  GoDaddy one day stop supporting the software I was uploading to my web page. With no notice just literally KICKED ME OUT And I was KICKED OUT!  Question Will this be the trend from Hosting companies.  I learned not long ago that even SERIF was getting out of Hosting.  So what is the deal?

 

But this is not a WebPage forum so IS AFFINITY DESIGNER Serif's substituted for WebPlus?

 

Went to an affinity store and found some Affinity Designer Web Pages . . .  and this is what prompt me to ask the question above. Specially since, as far as I knew, SERIF has SAID NOTHING on this regard.

 

ANY information on  this regard will be APRECIATED

 

THANKS

Hi JARivera,

 

Welcome to the Forums

 

We don't currently have any alternative to WebPlus and we don't have any plans to make one.

 

Thanks

If you are still around after what is likely disappointing news, head to Serif's Community Plus forum and explain what happened.

 

GoDaddy didn't kick you out because of using WebPlus. I just visited a half dozen sites I built using WebPlus and they are just fine.

Hippie Designs Works, if, as you say, they did not kick me out because I was using WebPlus, the WHAT WAS their reasoning?  I did talk with their "Support" people and they told me that they had decided to stop supporting that particular "format". Their word not mine. I wish I had done that conversation my email of their texting service because that way I would have had a hard copy of the conversation.

Since WebPlus is not longer supported or even available for legacy purchase and since Serif has stated they have no plans on building a replacement for WebPlus then you are going to have to find a new replacement.

And what format would that be?

I would guess that the 'format' is the HTML DOCTYPE as specified in the head of your document, usually the first line. Older web editors would be using out-of-date and deprecated  DOCTYPES. You need to check on the Serif Community forums.

Is there a compatible piece of software for WebPlus 8?  Even if the site then needs some tweaking. 

 

No other software can read the proprietary format used by WebPlus project files. You would need to save the content from the published site and then use those saved assets in another program.
