  1. Make a Desktop Application That Works Offline

    I propose Webydo make a desktop application that mirrors the browser experience. Quip ( https://quip.com/ ) is an excellent example of this. This way, we could work on websites offline and not rely on browser stability to update sites. If working offline, when your computer came online the app would upload changes.

  4. Webydo Updates, What Happened?

    Any updates guys? I see a lot of awesome fixes that never happened and I could really use them! A lot of these posted answers from Alana were dated back in 2014, I mean it's been 4 years now. It would be nice to see some of these updates happen! We work in a very fast paced environment and our clients are smarter and more educated to what's possible. They demand features and we have to deliver or we won't be in business for long. I could REALLY use these things done:

  5. Also posted to fb "community"...

    A topic I think is important for this community (here on fb and on your company site's 'forum') is the issue of working with 'Software as a Subscription' in 'the cloud' versus working with 'SaaS' on the computer (the Adobe "Creative Cloud" concept).

    MUCH of the frustration I continue to experience when working with your software via 'the cloud' is its chronic UN-responsiveness. The "hiccups" that occur almost-constantly! Examples? Double-click on text/text does not select... Click-and-drag an element within the 'design studio'/NOTHING happens... Sometimes a process or procedure works/sometimes that exact, same process DOES NOT... Log in for a new…

  6. Be very aware of Webydo Terms and Conditions

    I got a Team plan from Webydo, made some sites and forgot them. Last night I got an email of automatic payment of $420 to my card because of automatic renewal. I immediately acted on this, because I really didn't want or need another year. I have nothing against Webydo and it has evolved much in one year, but I just didn't need it anymore. So I sent an email to Webydo billing department and nicely asked that if they could refund and cancel my account. I think that is a common courtesy and pretty basic in customer relations to…

  7. Anchor links to anchor on page and to another page.

    The directions for this are incomplete and difficult to follow. Has anyone successfully implemented this and can you share some code?

  8. Site Folders on Main Dashboard

    On the main dashboard where the sites created are listed... This should have folders and option to view more than only 5 projects on the one page. Personally we have some clients that do upward of 10 -12 different types of websites with us and it would be painful having them scattered all throughout the project list. Especially if they are done over a long period where numerous other projects are completed in between. If folders are created it would then also be good to be able to make client notes and reminders in the folders. Possibly also create design…

  9. Gallery - manual slideshow presentation & slider navigation dots

    At the moment Webydo gallery has caption & navigation arrows.
    Navigation dots are an old thing (most jquery sliders have them), in most cases they look better then arrows and allow you to show how many actual slides you have in the slideshow and also manually show slides by clicking on the corresponding dot.

    I have been playing with the 'gallery' slider for a bit but I haven't been able to turn off automatic slides display. You can turn caption animation on /off and set other parameters but you cannot set the slideshow display sequence or turn it off to…

  11. Tips and Tricks - Publishing as part of the Design process

    Hi Guys!

    Me again!
    I just wanted to let you know that we really do recommend publishing throughout the whole design process, even if it's not finished! Things can often look different in the live websites and links don't work in preview. So if you have like a YouTube video it won't work until you publish.

    Have a Webydo day!

    Hello,

    I noticed that this post was a bit outdated so I just wanted to update you all.

    We have made it easier to link to emails now.

    To link text:
    1. Bring in a text element
    2. Edit the text as you wish
    3. Highlight the text you want to link
    4. Click on the link icon in the table directly above the text box
    5. Choose e-mail from the dropdown list
    6. Set up your email settings
    7. Choose your paragraph style for the link
    8. save!

    To link an image:

    1. Bring in a text element
    2. Place cursor at begining of paragraph
    3. Click image icon in table directly above text box
    4. Upload your image, and set the size
    5. Highlight the image (just like text)
    6. Click on the link icon in the table directly above the text box
    7. Choose e-mail from the…

  14. Articles in CMS

    Is there any way that someone using the CMS would be able to title each article when adding a new one so that they can be properly organised? Currently it just creates them as "New Item" which makes it impossible for them to manage when they have dozens of articles, all named "New Item".

  15. I want to create a resource page for my clients to log into that will have items I don't want the general public to see.

    I read you are creating a members only feature. When will it be complete? But, more importantly does anyone have any suggestions for a work around until that feature is available?

  20. Automatically create mobile responsive versions

    I'm so tired of designing websites and then having to spend the additional time making mobile versions, while I appreciate the control over the design, I can buy a 15.00 template and design only once.

    Webydo's in ability to do this adds a ton of time and with its bugs, a true pain to deal with!
