Thanks your feedback, 'We created Webydo so that you no longer need to hire the programmers to create the sites, but can instead design the site and publish. Webydo writes that code for you.' Yes, that is quite obvious which is why I joined in the first place as probably most did. The point being, especially over in the UK, that your revised rates will exceed the amount I can pay WordPress site programmers additionally using them will increase my profit margin and not have to deal with software that isn't particularly robust. I agree with George below, Webydo has great potential, but there are many flaws at the moment and the biggest is yet to come regarding value for money.Adrian commented
I am somewhat perplexed by justifications such as this:
'I do not see it as a price hike.
Instead of paying $60 a site each time you want to connect a domain, it's now included.
Actually if you plan on building a lot of sites with Webydo it comes out cheaper ...
But supposing the vast majority of my clients have a hosting deal elsewhere already? Also, Webydo is very much an interim package allegedly for design pros (me) who select using this route to offer smaller clients greater value for sites. When dealing with larger clients I employ programmers either to go bespoke or adapt a Wordpress theme. What is also apparent is this software whilst in its infancy is far from perfect and can be unpredictable and erratic. It is not of the same intuitive nature of say Adobe products, these obviously do a different job but the p/mnth rental is much lower than Webydo. The whole thing wreaks of contempt and disregard for users. Steven's comments below are bang on! It's very disappointing.
