Site Build software that compliments Interworx?

Does anyone have a suggestion for good system-wide Site Building software with the following criteria:

  1. Works well with Interworx, (or, better yet, links with Interworx CP)
  2. Requires a one-time fee…maybe up to $200…definitely NO more than $300. (Something other than Soholaunch. Their monthly fee puts them way out of my league.)
  3. Continually updated themes, etc…
  4. Ability to modify existing themes and make new themes without being a PHP programmer (HTML templates, please)
  5. Maybe Plug-in ready (e-commerce module, etc…)

Thanks,
Clair

Have you checked out: http://www.interspire.com/sitecenter/ ??

I’ve used their products before and am very satisfied. They have a great support team.

The demo works well, but it seems to me that it would be a bit difficult for the average user.
Any other suggestions?

Thanks,
Clair

I just did a quick search, but cannot recommend either of these products as I have not used them:

System-wide site builders are hard to find, especially good ones that will do just what you want. One of the nicest I’ve seen is actually the Plesk SiteBuilder…

Maybe InterWorx could include something like this with the CP in the future?

Now THAT would be absolutely wonderful if Interworx could ever build or add an excellent site building program into their “worx”!

Well, I tried the demos for …

The only ones I even half-way like is SWsoft’s SiteBuilder and Psoft’s SiteStudio.
I’ve asked questions from each of them and they all have been responsive except for Psoft (I sent them three messages on different days and…NO RESPONSE).

Has any one tried any of the ones above? (or any others?)

Possibly might have something to do with SWSoft recently having purchased Psoft :wink:

At virtually the same time, they acquired Ensim, oh an Sphera a few days later.

I tried sitereptile.com for a while about a year ago. I switched back to Soholaunch because of the support, and development. When I had issues the Soholaunch guys are always there to help me, not so with sitereptile.com.

And a Lite edition (upgradeable to pro) of Soholaunch is included in InterWorx 3.0

EDIT: For clarification this is a ScriptWorx module you can install.

Tim,

Can you give us a breakdown of what the free “light” edition offers compared to expensive “pro” version? (Also, does the “light” version ever expire?)

Thanks!

I believe it’s just a limited amount of pages. After posting this I took a look and it does say " Soholaunch 4.9pro-r58." As I understood it they made a sepcial version just for Iworx integration Socheat was the one who worked with them on this. If there was more to it than that I’ll either get him to post something here or I will.

I just took a look and the following features are disabled:

  • Blog Manager
  • eNewsletter
  • Shopping Cart
  • Event Manager
  • Database Tables
  • Member Login
  • Backup/Restore
  • Manage Plugins

and I think I was wrong about the page limitation.

In regards to Soholaunch and the one in ScriptWorx.
You do not get the items mentioned in post #12, you have to have the Pro edition.

Which you can get a server wide license (which i have) instead of purchasing each license separately.

The biggest issue with the install in ScriptWorx, is that Soholauch is loaded into a sub directory. Soholaunch MUST be laoded in the /html directory if you wish to use Soholaunch as a useful tool. With it being in a sub-directory Soholaunch will ONLY build a site with in that subdirectory.

Example, lets say I use scriptworx to install, and the subdirectory is /html/myinstall

And to see anything that Soholaunch creates you must go to www.mydomain.com/myinstall

So to me, other than just testing Soholaunch, it is basically useless and I have removed it from Scriptworx. And yes if some one has a site up and they where to install Soholaunch in root it would over write their index page. But with proper instructions, pointed out.

I believe that if someone installs ANY script in Scriptworx they should have the option and WARNED of the issues of doing so, to install any scrip whether it is Soholaunch or any other script into the root directory. Make the default as a sub directory but give a second step with warnings to have the option to install in root. Thats my 2cents worth.
