Sorry to say but this just plain s$cks. Creating a decent website is not easy with this app. In fact the workflow is illogical and drag. Compared to Rapidweaver this is a toy. And take a look at the high price setting! Common .. Avoid and try Rapidweaver instead.

Hi, new Mac user here. I'm trying to build my first website. On Windows I used to make sites on FrontPage (many years ago). Is this a good replacement for Mac? For comparison, I'm downloading free trials of a bunch of other web design Mac apps that are half the price or cheaper. I'm just wondering.... does this app have something more to offer for the price?

All you really need to do to understand why you should not use this software is go to their homepage and view the page source. The amount of extra code for their site is crazy, even in just the head section.. I'll give it 2 stars for ease of use, but if you need something to build websites like this I would recommend Blocs over this.

I clicked a link from Macintouch to look at this app. They have two movies side by side on the home page. One for Standard and one for Pro. The only difference in the two movies seemed to be direct FTP upload for pro. In fact both movies were titled as STANDARD. Such an obvious glaring error on the website of a Website Creator?! For this price a lot should be right without elementary errors on their own site. It is of some concern that newer versions aren't compatible with sites from just 3 point versions ago as posted here. I did took a serious look at this app..for about 5 minutes. It has promise when it gets a little bit more professional perhaps.

Version 3.9

Unfortunately an old customer asked me to update her website for Christmas. Her website was last updated with version 3.6. I just updated to version 3.8 and it completely screwed up the formatting of every single line of text. Now I have to sit here for hours fixing it - FOR FREE. This reminds me why I don't use this POS anymore.

Get Quick N' Easy Web Builder. It's not pretty but has more features and is 1/10th the price.

Goldfish has many more features. It is more for designers because you have many more options for creating a website with unique design. Of course it is not as simple as filling just a template. But you can't compare these two different solutions.

What sucks is a company that has to remove its forums on their web site and the comments here because of all the negative comments.

We will set up a new forum as soon as possible. The onld one was filled with spam at least after one day. So we are looking for a new software. Meanwhile you can write to our support We will answer your questions as soon as possible. We are not able and don't want to delete comments here. Because of the sale, the Goldfish listing has been split into one listing for Standard and one for Professional. All old comments are on the page for Goldfish Standard.
