@Deadlybrit Hi Deadly. If the Fill tool isn’t in the flyout, 3rd button down on the left toolbar, you can “restore factory defaults” by holding Control on your keyboard when you launch WebPlus from its icon. Gradients on text won’t work for HTML text frames, which strictly meet HTML specs for efficient loading. A gradient would turn text into an image, so can be applied to Artistic Text objects. And your nav bar should animate when you are previewing your site, but not in design mode. HTH, Dale.

@SerifSoftware And for the info on your free hosting: 18 months hosting with WebPlus(dot)n3t, a subdomain in the format (wwwdot)yoursite.webplus. n3t and one email address in the format yoursite (at) webplus. n3t. Includes 250 MB web space and 2 GB monthly bandwidth. For additional hosting packages, see serif. c0m slash hosting or ask for good value recommendations on the WebPlus forum. Sorry for using spaces, 3 for e, and a 0 for o in address examples.

@Deadlybrit It’s OK, you can ask as much as you like. No you don’t *need* to pay another fee for hosting after buying WebPlus, but if you are making sites for other people and they want their own address and guaranteed service levels, then you will eventually need to spend (or charge) a little money for hosting each website you sell. If you want to host multiple sites with the free hosting, they would be available at yoursite.webplus.n3t/customer1, yoursite.webplus.n3t/customer2 etc. (cont.)

@SerifSoftware ..”I would recommend you resell a hosting & address (domain) bundle with each design,”……does this mean even after buying the software i will need to pay someone else a monthly fee to do this? Could i have the direct link to this page about web hosting please?, i don’t feel like annoying you all day long..lol. Again many thanks for your help.

@SerifSoftware Additional hosting can be obtained from Serif or you can search online for an alternative, with features to suit your clients. For instance, if you would like to implement your own forums, e-commerce, form scripts etc rather than use WebPlus’s built-in tools, then your chosen host will need to support some technologies like php, MySql etc. One of my colleagues obtained free hosting with another company recently, and registered a web address elsewhere, but it was a hassle. HTH.

@Deadlybrit No probs! It is possible to host multiple sites with your free hosting account, but not advisable as there is only one main address and limited bandwidth. The beauty of WebPlus is you can make as many sites for as many people as you like and host those sites anywhere. I would recommend you resell a hosting & address (domain) bundle with each design, and also that you visit Serif’s forum; there are lots of people that can help with WebPlus, design, SEO, hosting and other queries.

@SerifSoftware ..Thank you for the prompt reply, just one more question i promise..lol, i bought this software only 3 days ago and haven’t had much time to delve too deep into the ins and outs, it says 18 months free web hosting….im just a little confused about all this, i want to be able to create websites for sale, they get in touch with me i create them etc etc, i keep reading this is a really grey area as far as actually HOSTING the web sites, can you clarify for me please?

@Deadlybrit Hi Deadlybrit, yes you can instert animated banners as easily as using a piece of clipart – there is a range of animated banners built in to WebPlus, you can drag and drop them onto your page from the Gallery at the right. Double-click to edit, then add your own text and images, it’s a piece of cake. If you design your own animated banners elsewhere, e.g. Serif DrawPlus, you can import Flash SWF straight into your WebPlus sites too. HTH, Dale.

@SerifSoftware ..Hi, does this package have the option to insert moving images or banners etc?…im wanting to create a website for a friend who owns his own animal housing business and would like to add some moving animal pics, thank you for your time 🙂

HI there – this is a great tutorial – I am having trouble adding photos to my blog entries – is there a way of doing that?

Also it would be great if we had another in-depth tutorial on creating a blog in WebPlus X4 which you can update from anywhere – without having to use the webplus x4 to update it – ie if I was on holiday for instance etc

You could click the top layer, scroll to the bottom of all your layers (with the top one selected). Hold down Shift and click the last layer (all will be selected).
