When you start to create your website your main step would be to select an existing project or create a new one. While going through the steps on your left you are able to keep track on what sections you have covered and see what’s next.

On top of each step it’ll give you hints of what to do when you are on that section, which comes in handy if you are one of the ones that like to use anything without viewing any instructions. So from the view on how this goes, this really seems to be something great for those that just want to create their website without much of a learning curve.

In the 1st step you given the options to set up your site title, enter the creator, site address, description, icon and language of site. This would be the main settings for site before getting into your main site settings. So this lets you personalize what information your site would mention when someone checks out your site.

The next step is to select your template, use an existing template, or create a new template. With the selection of the template you can take a look on how your site looks, change the logo. It comes with enough settings to customize your site to fit your needs. When given the choice you can add your logo and edit the logo as well.

It comes with plenty of templates that you really have so much too choose from which might take you more time here than creating your site as you might like more than one. Website X5 does give you a way to shorten the choice in forms of categories which could range from health, business, food and catering, etc.

If you select the default template you’ll be able to select from a large variety of templates. You can select from various categories and select where you might like the menu system from horizontal or vertical menu systems. After you select the Template you like from the vast selection you are able to still customize the style before you continue to the next step.

This editing menu appears even if you selected a template, uploaded yours or just created one. At first it does seem like the editing system doesn’t look complete but when you get into each of the icons you see at this step you will be given a chance to make sure that each is customized the way you want.

Kind of convenient as you are able to make it look the way you want without a need of knowing how to do it. This way you see what you edit like when editing the menu system  and drop-down menu system itis quite easy that you are able to make it look the way you want, with several ways to format the menu system and drop-down menu with an easy to custom settings. You can have a menu customized in bevel and customize how the light shows through.

If you selected a new template or continuing from the default template, you are able to customize the template style from structure, text style, menu system, how drop down menu works if mouse over or shown always, and how information pops up and email format. Each of these sections gives you several options to edit so you can make sure that your site would look and perform the way you desire.

The second step would give you the options of how the site would be and which page is next. This would let you make sure that the page goes correct and each menu system shows the correct information on your site.

This might be an important step for you as this might be considered on what page you will have and were it will show on the menu system you have selected and created in the past settings. You can have several main pages and several pages that could link to the main as well which would go to your drop down menu system that you set up in the earlier options.

The third step would be creating your page, it starts you with 4 sections but you can add more columns and rows. You can also add objects which consist of text section, email, guestbook, social network icons, dynamic content, product catalog, etc. They Website X5 also provides you option to add your own HTML code.

You can double click on each module that you added to be able to add or edit the information that you want to show up on each section, this would let you confirm what items you want. As example if you would have several pages showing different products that you are selling, this would let you confirm what products and categories to show on the page you select.

Section 4 will give you the advanced settings, this would provide you the options to finish the last touches on your site. Most of what Evolution and Professional settings would be at this section which gives you an advertising message section, blog which is provided in Compact and up, and RSS Feed.

For Professional version you have the App Mobile which provides you the settings to be able to have the mobile version synced with your website feed which would work for both Apple and Android Devices. Having a mobile App and Website X5 providing you the option to have one is a great advantage for your site as would keep everything up to date and no need to know how to create an app where Website X5 Professional provides all the tools you need for the App.

In the same section, you have your options for user access management where you can manage the users that signs up or your admins and moderators that are helping out on keeping site up to date. If you have Evolution and Professional shopping cart settings is also available in the settings which lets you input your products, price, quantity, availability, and discounts.

Having an easy way to access the settings for this in a particular place comes handy without the need to find and edit the whole site again. You can specify how the products appear so if in case there’s new items you add it would show up were you want it to.

The last section helps you analyze and optimize the website to work well with any browser that is opened so that there is no error or problems. From there you can upload the website directly through FTP, you can export site to disk, or export project so you can transfer to a different computer.

This lets you view the website before you upload it and also you can make sure that they work all browsers and see where you might need to work on before you put your site on-line.

    The latest X5 Evolution 13.1.2.10 update ruined my Webdesign deleting more than 90% of my Product pictures and their detailed attached Descriptions. The Incompetence and ignorance of X5 Help Center has left me for more than 6 days without any solution how to retrieve my design.
    Folks, don’t buy Incomedia’s software.
