That sounds a bit incredible but it is an evident fact; with the help of Website X5 Pro 12 you have the possibility to create the website of your dream in just five easy steps. Thanks to the program’s advanced features, it will become an attractive and enjoyable place for every user.
Before starting the project, you need to name it; just select any desired name, click the Next button and start a five-step amazing journey to your website.
It should be noted that you can create as many projects as you want. All your projects will be displayed in the window and you will be able to edit them, i.e. change some parameters, add new features, etc.
In addition, the program allows you to rename, duplicate or back up any existing project.
After naming the project, you can proceed to the first step; it is very important because in this step you should lay the foundation of your website, i.e. make it unique and different from other websites. In this first section the program offers you to customize General Settings (it includes two tabs- in the first tab General you have the possibility to specify the basic parameters of your project, namely, website title, author, address and description on the one hand and content language and website icon and image on the other hand. The Website X5 Pro 12 offers 17 content languages and supports the following graphic formats for adding as a website icon and image- ICO, PNG, GIF, JPG and JPEG); and in the second tab Responsive Design you can choose the desired size of the screen for the website navigation, i.e. make it suitable for viewing on different devices, for example, smartphones, tablets or desktops. It is very important to enable this feature because your website will be easily navigable and convenient not only for desktops or notebooks but also for other devices.
If you want your website to be attractive and eye-pleasing to others, of course, you need to give more care to its appearance, i.e. simply speaking; it must be very beautiful and charming. Website X5 Pro 12 offers three different options for selecting templates for your website; firstly, you can take full advantage of the default templates offered by the program which are conveniently divided into several categories, for example, Sport, Shop, Business, Photography, and so on; more than 1,000 templates are at your disposal; secondly, select templates from your Custom Library, i.e. those templates which have been previously created and saved by you; and, thirdly, create a completely new template.
Website X5 Pro 12 allows you to view the selected templates with the help of a special preview window or using any well-known modern browsers, for example, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome or Internet Explorer.
It goes without saying that the attractive template is very important but it is more important to define its layout and graphic appearance, i.e. in other words, customize its style by specifying some settings and options.
Website X5 Pro 12 offers a lot of different options for organizing the main structure of your template. With the help of the program you have the possibility to set up the following options- Main Template Structure (here you can customize Menu Type, for example, Horizontal or Vertical; Page Section (for example, header or footer background, page contents, and so on) and Graphic Properties (for example, color, background image, etc.)
Text Style– Website X5 Pro 12 allows you to customize the graphic style of your website, for example, page title or text, field, buttons, background or text color, font type, and so on.
In addition, you can also set up the appearance of the main menu, drop-down menu or page menu on the one hand and customize the style of tooltips, showbox or email layout on the other hand.
And, finally, with the help of a special template editor you can customize the header and footer of your website, insert texts (by specifying their content, font type, text and background color and effects), add images (from the computer or online library; the program supports the following graphic formats- JPG, JPEG, GIF, PNG, PSD, BMP, TIF, DIB, PCXZ, RLE, TGA and WMF), slideshows, HTML code and search field.
After defining General Settings and selecting the desired template for your website, you can proceed to the second step- Sitemap Creation, i.e. you have the possibility to customize Menu levels and Sub-levels and add as many pages as you want by linking them with each other for easy navigation.
In the Level properties window you can define links to be executed on the item click and icons for the menu items.
In the Page properties window you can set up, firstly, some general settings, for example, Extended page title, Page description and Website keywords; secondly, define its graphic appearance, for example, page background and its color, image file and its alignment, and so on; and, finally, edit the HTML code for the page and save it in one of the formats offered by the program- HTML, PHP, ASP, CMF or JSP.
After creating the sitemap and adding the desired number of pages, you can proceed to the third step- Page Creation and start the creation of different pages of your website and defining the contents of each page.
All objects that can be added to the website page are conveniently divided into five different categories, namely, Main objects, Booking, Google, Page counters and Widgets.
Main Objects category consists of 12 objects which allow you to perform the following actions:
Text– with the help of the full-featured text editor you can edit and format the text, i.e. insert link or image, enable HTML code, select the desired font type and size, add text and background color, etc. In addition, you have the possibility to edit each added tab, for example, display mode, navigation buttons and color.
Image– images beautify the website, so it is very important to add them to it. Website X5 Pro 12 allows you to add images from the computer, Online library or Internet (just enter the desired URL). You have the possibility to define their display mode, quality and enable protection against copy.
In addition, with the help of the inbuilt image editor you can edit images, for example, crop, flip or rotate them, add various filters, frames and effects, apply brightness and contrast, etc.
Website X5 Pro 12 also allows you to create and format tables, add video and audio objects or flash animations, Google new box and Google translate gadget, Shinystat visit counter, etc.
After finishing editing the pages of your website, you just need to add some advanced settings. These can be done in the fourth step. You have the possibility to add Google tracking codes services and custom codes, create an Enter page for your website, define your blog’s general settings and post published there; set the method for handling data submitted on the web, enable the privacy and security settings and HTML code protection; create an advertising message for your website; define and set options for RSS feeds and posts; configure the access policy for entering the website; enable display of the website on the different devices, for example, Apple and Android devices (you can download special applications from App Store and Google Play) and edit your shopping cart details (for example, product list, order management, customer details, sending orders, and some different options, i.e. currency, price format, VAT settings, and so on).
Now the creation of your website is completed. In the fifth step you can analyze and optimize it by searching and removing any errors in the contents.
After checking your website’s contents, the program will give you a detailed report about website optimization level in percentage and the size of your project and website, the number of total pages and products on the one hand and display a list of all found errors and alerts on the other hand. You have the possibility to view errors and alert details and go to the page and correct it.
