fails to open previous project files from version 4
after being forced to pay full price of $80 because licensing of my version 4 is not given in the program and they have lost my record, I find out on the version 4 project files will not open at all in version 5.3.2 so I basically wasted my money and am stuck keeping my old computer around just to run version 4. What a bunch of bozos this company is. And no the files are not corrupted. They open and work just fine in version 4. I can edit the website with latest version 4 and save the file and then it always fails to load in version 5. AVOID this program! Use something else.
Just opened my new Rapidweaver software, and can’t begin to say how dissapointed I am. Was very excited to get started on building my new better than iWeb website, but just 5 minutes in my excitement came to a screeching halt. NOTHING like iWeb and I think they are definitely stretching the meaning of WYSIWYG. Apparently I am now going to have to do a bunch of HTML editing to get what I want! And buy a bunch of additional plug ins. What a far cry from opening iWeb and having something I could see and preview in just a few short minutes. I wasn’t looking to do this as a career, just wanted a good loooking website with a shopping cart and secure check out. Very very unhappy.
Giving up on RapidWeaver
I bought RapidWeaver a couple of years ago as a replacement for iWeb. I didn’t really like it that much but made it work for a few websites. The learning curve was fairly steep and they charged $20 a quarter for access to instructional videos. Recently I was going to make some changes in one of the websites and a pop-up said an upgrade was available. After that the websites wouldn’t open because they were "missing a plugin". I tried a number of work-arounds, but the sites are gone. RapidWeaver has been banished forever. I have been using EverWeb lately and like it a lot.
