1. Can I import my ACS Website Builder (basic) site content into ACS Website Builder Professional?

 

We are currently working on a migration assistant that will pull content and images from an existing Website Builder site into Website Builder Pro. At this time there is no specific way to import existing content.


 

2. Are the same templates available in ACS Website Builder and ACS Website Builder Pro?

 

ACS Website Builder Pro uses a new template technology that enables users added flexibility in content and design elements; therefore, templates are specific to each application and are not transferable.


 

3. Are there any spell checking capabilities?

 

ACS Website Builder Pro has a built in spell checker for website text. You can select specific text boxes and initiate a spell check, allowing you to quickly correct misspelled words.


 

4. Can I preview my site before publishing?

 

Yes you can. ACS Website Builder Pro allows users to easily preview their site pages before publishing them on the web.


 

5. Is there a limit to the number of pages I can have on my site?

 

Short of using up all of your storage space, there is no limit to the number of pages your website can have. The new menu editor in ACS Website Builder Pro allows you to create as many pages and menu entries as you wish. There is also support for submenu items within the main site menu.


 

6. Can I upload my own images to use on my site?

 

Yes, you can upload your own custom images to be used on your site through the image gallery tool in ACS Website Builder Pro. Your can also use an FTP client if you wish to upload multiple images at once to the specified directory in the application. ACS Website Builder Pro also offers over 40,000 images in the free image library which can be easily added to any ACS Website Builder Pro site.


 

7. Why can I not move certain elements of a template around freely?

 

While most images and text boxes placed within the templates are moveable, some elements have been anchored in place to keep the general design of the template coherent.

 


8. Can I undo changes that I have made through the site editor?

 

Yes, you can easily undo and redo changes that you have performed through the site editor in ACS Website Builder Pro.


 

9. I have modified my template extensively, however I am not content with the outcome; can I reset the design template back to its original state?

 

Yes, you can reset the template by re-selecting it. Go to Designs, select another design template by clicking on the thumbnail, and then select the original design.


 

10. Can I include a form on my website?

 

Yes, you can create a custom web form on your site. Simply select the web form icon, and drag and drop the elements you wish to utilize in your webform. Remember to specify a mailing address to which the form information is sent.


 

11. I created my site using another template and I want to change it without losing content. Can this be done?

 

Yes, you can change the template while maintaining the content simply by selecting a new template in Designs. Placement of elements may need to be adjusted but information will transfer between templates.


 

12. Can I edit the HTML in ACS Website Builder Professional?

 

Currently there is no HTML editing feature available in ACS Website Builder Pro. It is strictly a WYSIWYG (what-you-see-is-what-you-get) intuitive website editor that allows the ease and comfort of designing a website without any knowledge of HTML.
