Stunning websites, stunning images
Images speak more than a thousand words, so we’ve made it even easier to add life to your website in WebPlus X8. Galleries are more flexible, and you now have more controls than ever before. Tell your story through a sequence of images by organising photos by the time they were taken, so that they display in the correct order.
Creating a masterpiece takes time, but creating an amazing website, with stunning galleries only takes a few clicks in WebPlus!
Add extra security to your work with the new Watermarking feature. Imprint your own digital mark onto every image that you display on the web by adding semi-transparent text and logos to photos, with full control over position, size, colour, plus so much more.
Your customers will experience a whole new way of interacting with photos as the new magnifier allows you to showcase your products and images in greater detail. Through the magnifier, visitors can zoom and pan around to see your images at their highest resolution.
It’s now even easier for people to share your amazing imagery with the world too. A new rollover Pinterest button can be applied to images so that your art, crafts and photography can be shared in just one click!
Your web forms, your style
It’s so important to interact with your customers, so we’ve made it easier with even more readymade forms to fit your company’s needs. Choose from a variety of pre-made themes, including feedback forms, contact us and sign up forms, which you can then personalise using built-in options, and by using your very own background colours.
In one simple form, you can open your business up to instant feedback, while still maintaining an air of privacy and professionalism that a simple email us link can’t do. You’ll capture more responses with no coding necessary. It's really that easy.
Smart objects that work for you
Whether you are an expert, novice or somewhere in between, you want your web tools to be as intuitive as possible. So, to help with this, the Smart Objects in WebPlus have been re-engineered to suit your needs.
Create and manage a range of powerful and popular web features for free, such as forums, blogs, accommodation booker, and much more, all with just one log-in. Smart Objects can now be stored more easily too, and then re-used for other sites, as well as used multiple times within one site with a variety of settings.
You’ll also enjoy a more effective site search that allows visitors to search blogs, regular content and smart objects, to find exactly what they need fast.
Make an impact with the new Slider Studio
Making beautiful websites is so easy with the new Slider Studio. Set slider behaviour, control interactivity, and add, remove and fully design panels all in one place. Every slider can be easily customised to fit your website design, and your needs. The dedicated Slider Studio makes adding that visual impact so easy.
Advanced design, powerful HTML5
Professional website design has never been easier with WebPlus X8, as custom coding is now more user-friendly than ever before. More advanced HTML5 and CSS editing also gives you greater control over your designs and more flexibility when you need it.
To accompany the HTML5 Video Player, the new HTML5 Audio Player allows you to host and play your own audio, music and playlists in a highly compatible player, without the need to use a third party service or widget. And with a selection of pre-made themes, you can create a professional audio player in just a few clicks!
Smoother, sleeker, with more customisation
Create beautiful, interactive websites by adding a whole host of sleek effects. You’ll enjoy having objects fade and animate in and out of view as well as a smooth page scroll when moving up and down your pages for a greater user experience.
The new Embeddable Fonts List lets you select from a range of attractive, web safe, embeddable fonts that still look as intended without being converted to graphics. This ensures that your website will be picked up in search engines much easier and your website text will look exactly as it is intended to be. And with 40 embeddable fonts included, you can rest assured that fonts are now more accessible and will maintain their appearance on any screen.
Fine tune your website graphics with new and improved filter effects such as the cool retro Trail effect, directional feathering, drop shadows and much more.
New site membership controls
A new Site Membership widget gives site users a more attractive way to log in and interact with member sections, and much more control over their account. They will enjoy easier access to their avatars and profiles, screen names, passwords, and mailing list subscriptions.
Your site, safe and secure
You can now save your site, including fonts and linked resources as a package, making it so much easier to backup your site online, in case anything happens to your computer. Plus, WebPlus X8 now supports SFTP connections when publishing and managing your site to a remote server. And share your work with other designers and clients, much easier than before.
Export your Widgets
Designers who use multiple software packages will enjoy a faster workflow by exporting objects designed in WebPlus as widgets. Navigation bars, galleries, forms, sliders and much more can be made in minutes, then exported as a widget to other website software, in just a few clicks, so you’ll have more time to work on what’s important.
Live web design assistant
WebPlus becomes your website design companion; it’s there for you every step of the way. With the new interactive, task-based web design assistant, your site design is controlled at all times, and you’re reminded when something just isn’t quite right.
