Decent, good, perhaps not the best. 4 stars by HonestJohn Jan 15, 2020 (Read all my 10 reviews)
I've used a number of Xara products in their web site creation products. This isn't bad, but it gets clumsy as the site grows, and as an occasional user, it can be awkward. The interface feels old and slow. I'm not doing anything complex and only use a fraction of Xara's features, yet, I am looking for something else. It is WYSIWYG, and it has good menus. I've had good luck with copy and paste of "very standard HTML" from my old sites into Xara program. I had to do some tweaks, and a few tables and such would not import, but over ok there. I'm having problems exporting this to any other program, thus my main gripe now is that once you use it, you are welded and stuck with it. It seems many web page creation programs are like that, so take care with them all. Being able to export to other editors in the future is a key issue here, and with other programs too. I think this is good to start and good for small sites. For a true bare bones beginner, try Kompozer or other older free product to learn. As I said, I'm looking for a replacement of Xara now. As a note, I've used far worse, so Xara may be a good choice for others, and if the needs are modest, this seems good. Try the trial first! show Review details
Ok for graphics, forget long text 2 stars by Skeptic May 20, 2013 (Read all my 2 reviews)
I had high hopes for this program. It has many import options, and I need to do a makeover of a big, text-intensive site. For that purpose, it proved hopeless. Firstly, the import loses all links, unless you bring in RTF. Secondly, it works with a page metaphor, "pages" really being text boxes, and their length is limited, both within the program, and more critically with what happens when you export to a website. As with many of these CSS-type positioning programs, long CSS text boxes seem to be minced when browsers decode them. Thirdly, trying to import files with tables gives unpredictable or missing results. Fourthly, when I tried to republish an imported html article, it gave an "out of memory message" and didn't spit out half the file. If you want to make a site with short "pages" and pretty graphics, Xara may well work fine for you. Otherwise ... show Review details
