If you enter a contact form on your website, you should be able to specify which email the form contents gets sent to based on a selection from the user.


For example, a contact form with a drop down box for 'Department'. Then if the user selects sales, the form content gets sent to the sales department, or if the user selects 'Returns' the contents gets sent to the returns department.

Customising the Search Bar could be useful, changing the colour of the button etc.

WebPlus X4 - Customising the search button

Just takes a bit of tweaking.

  1. Resume from last time — open the last used site at the page that was being edited on closing WebPlus, with the cursor where it was before too if possible
  2. Zoom fit to page width by default so that page down/up does not change the zoom level depending on the page length (Zoom to full page is the current default).
  3. Return support for creative text frames
  4. Add support for footnotes and endnotes (the code must be already there from PagePlus
  5. Customisable font size and colours for HTML code editor so that it is actually usable for colour-blind and/or short-sighted users.
  6. Save as package for easy transfer of all linked assets to another PC or for backup.

Default Re: WebPlus X7 - Wishlist #2

There are three issue I have with WordPlus which I would like to see in additional functionality. They are:

Firstly File names. The default file name is pageXX.html where the XX is incremented automatically. Because I’m merging several projects into one web-site I cannot accept this default and have to edit every page I create with a unique prefix. It would be nice if there was a project parameter which enabled you to set your own default instead of “page”.

Secondly I find that when I clone a page I have to re-select the the data source for the data merge or I have to create a blank page and copy the repeating area and paste it. All this is time consuming and needs to completely clone the page, parameters and all.

Lastly, you can only create/clone one page at a time. My layouts usually include a Page with two frames and index page which is referenced in one frame and a detail merge page which creates the index page and is referenced in the other frame. It would be nice if you could select a group of pages and clone them.

Default Re: WebPlus X7 - Wishlist #2 Vimeo

Please add Vimeo as an option to Insert Media Object in addition to YouTube. Vimeo.com is fast becoming an alternative to YouTube for the growing number of people that are dissatisfied with YouTube.

In many ways, it is a better video platform than YouTube and certainly a higher-class video platform. They also allow free accounts similar to YouTube.

When you enter an HTML Fragment, rather than WebPlus displaying a white box with the words 'HTML Fragment', it should give you a preview of what the HTML will look like.

AGREE!! Being able to view in HTML also would be VERY helpful.. Many of us first learned how to do websites in HTML and can spot "issues/problems" that way much easier.. As most of us are aware - even thought it's supposed to be WYSISYG when the sites are moved sometimes things just aren't quite the same.Being able to view the code in WEBPLUS would be very helpful!

Create a WebPlus template for independent book authors/sellers.

Here is an example of a site created to sell a book: http://bit.ly/PdGaMw. Not an ideal design but it illustrates what authors need to help market their creations.

I saw that Serif has a new, free WebPlus template for musicians. Writers could use something for their purposes.

@knolls,

The WordPress example you gave would be pretty simple to create (recreate) in WebPlus.

I understand the desire for pre-made templates. In general, nearly every example I have seen someone point to would be an easy afternoon to make a couple master pages for to recreate the look and feel in WebPlus.

Take care, Mike

You can switch between the two now.

Perhaps a split screen approach is your line of thinking.

That's great news.. I'll have to check that out - I haven't had the chance/opportunity to actually use X6 yet..

Keep/control the published file names for images. Instead of wp*.jpg I would like it to be a name that I specify, or at least the original file name.

@Tom...which was not specified.

Thanks for the clarification. Tis a great request that I suspect has been made before and needs to be included.

Page sizing improvement suggestion: add a tick box to master page properties dialog to allow a user to determine whether changing the MP size is reflected in associated pages or not. Currently it isn't, so the default setting would be un-checked. There are very good reasons for choosing either option.

Yes, it can be annoying if you realise that you had the wrong page width... you have to change the master page(s) and each individual page too, which on big sites is a nightmare
