I always dreamed of having my own website but never had the courage to start learning how to do this.
One day i bought an excellent learning video on DVD about creating websites using Adobe Dreamweaver CS4.
After 12 hours of listening to these learning sessions i asked myself if there is no other way than programming houndreds of html-tags and css style sheets and making more cryptic manupulations only to get a first homepage.
I asked myself how long it would take to build a complete site using these tools ...
I decided to look a little bit around and i found Serif webplus x4, an all in one package for a very cheap price.
After running webplus x4 and reading some small online tutorials about it i told myself that this is the way i want to build my website by using this fantastic graphical toolkit.
The whole website was finished in only one day !
With webplus x4 you can now also insert html ond javascript code on your pages.
What is also very important is that you can have "Master pages" as a basic layout for the rest of the pages.
Publishing your site via ftp to the hosting server is also completely handled in a differential way by webplus x4.
Integration into the most popular search engines can also be done with some clicks and by inserting some authentification html code on the homepage.
If you want to build easily a website where graphical design is your focus and not spending days of coding html and css styles then this is your product.
I cannot imagine using another tool than webplus x4 in the future and therefore i give 5 stars.

The program is easy to use, but don' try to change applications. Once you create a website you will be stuck using Webplus as it will take a long time to copy its features to a different program which you may eventually want to do as you may want to add features not supported by Webplus. I added a simple scrolling text box which was a headache to maintain but necessary to increase search engine placement. I had to find workarounds for a couple of other features which is difficult as they do not let you insert HTML anywhere you like. It also writes all web page styling (CSS) in the source for each page instead of putting it in one or a few CSS files as is standard today. This results in slower page loads for your customers. This program is not worth more than $50.

For someone who's accustomed to dropping $500 at a time for Adobe CS upgrades, I have to say this is the best $80 I have spent on a web tool yet. I am always skeptical above rave reviews for products I haven't heard of before and there are a lot of glowing reviews of some pretty weak web authoring packages on Amazon. I have been a dreamweaver user since its inception and I am very comfortable with it, there is no doubt that its probably the most advanced professional web development tool on the market. But that said I was in the market for a faster, simpler, more intuitive, fully integrated web authoring product. I tested different comparable products to webplus and I liked this one the best by far (also tried: netobjects fusion, ms frontpage, ms expressions, coffee cup, site spinner and many other).

This is a well thought out product, it gives you almost everything you need to get sites done very quickly with little web experience. It's like a swiss army knife, does almost everything you need, almost as well as using standalone tools like Adobe CS5. Its not as powerful as the standalone professional tools on a feature by feature basis but I have found I can do a site just as well in a fraction of the time and many of the plugins that I had to buy separately for dreamweaver are included free. There is a free version on their site which I tried and bought the full version the next day. If serif keep the price of this product below $100 they have one feature Adobe aren't gonna have any time soon, "value".

We are starting a company and several months ago contracted someone to design a website and ecommerce. His website looked great as did some others he designed; however, he didn't do anything for us. We had to fire him and he won't give us back our money. Since we are wasting time and money, we decided to do it ourselves. We need a website by next week... I researched on the internet and for the price, Webplus x4 received fairly good marks. First, we tried to order it through Serif (the company that makes it) and that was a big mistake. That cost us another week dealing with them. We paid for next day delivery and come to find out, they were out of stock. We had also ordered extra templates and pictures so it was a large order. It took several days to get it cancelled. In the meantime, I ordered it through Amazon. I didn't pay for extra shipping because another reviewer said he got it in two days as did I. The price at Amazon is cheaper as well.

While I was waiting, I downloaded a trial version of Webplus x2 to practice with - the basic functions are the same. I also looking on youtube and watched some tutorials that also helped me. I went through all the tutorials for Webplus x2 and those helped a lot. When I received the Webplus x4, I had a basic idea of how to use it. It doesn't come standard with many templates and no image gallery. However, I found that I could modify the template to what I wanted and I used Microsoft clip art to find some images.

I am used to using Windows Office 2007 and the basic commands for Webplus are like Powerpoint. Without going through the tutorials, it would have taken me longer to figure things out. Overall, I am happy with the results. I created 3 websites over the weekend - we have several divisions in our company.
