Manual for WebEasy 8

Is there a "dummies" book for this software?  I'm not joking, I'm serious.  I've tried for the 3rd time to do a website and I've got pages all over the place and I can't get to any one of them to copy/cut and paste info I've already typed.

I noticed someone "without experience" created a website in 15 minutes.  Not me. I've tried for 2 hours every time and it doesn't make sense. It's not user friendly unless you know the icons and where to look for them.

I would really like a "dummies" book if someone knows where I can get it.  Guess I'll end up paying someone to do this for me.  As most people do.  Manuals are written by and for tekkies, not the average (moderate) user.

Hello Ngaire,

Unfortunately, there is no such publications that we have released. The program does come with a user guide, as well as a very extensive help menu witch search abilities. There may be some literature released by others in regards to using WebEasy, however these resources were not from Avanquest/WebEasy.

Hey Ngaire 

 

I feel for ya .... I bought Web Easy Pro 8 last July and was a newbie too but now I have about 50 pages of a site online and I have spent about 12 weeks revamping my index page to make it more professional, attractive and resourceful for both my visitor and myself.

The PDF Manual does contain loads of info for the beginner so read it and take your time experimenting with it line by line - most of it is relatively easy after a few repetitions.

 

My own experience is that this web site designing and building is a frustrating torturous business and many a day I have given up and then come back to it a few days later, or screamed and shouted in text to the support.  

 

When you feel like chucking in the towel just remember how bad life could be if you had to spend a year or two learning HTMl and CSS, you'll realise then how valuable software like this is to the newbie.

 

Keep at it

There are some really good tutorials out there that can help immensely.  Try here:

Web Easy Pro Help for Web Easy Users

Not free but reasonably priced for all the information you receive. There is a forum that goes along with the purchase for Q & A.

It IS a great resource.

With each new version of WEP, I printed out the PDF manual.  Yeah, it it IS a lot of paper, but I have used it many times.  Some things you only do occasionally, you don't necessarily remember "where to" or "how to."  

My manual has those little sticky flags and notes all over them, just in case... you know, my brain doesn't work sometimes.

It is mostly little quirky things but it is nice to have that handy anyhowsen.
