Easier websites

2019-10-29

Being able to maintain a site more easily, and constantly add content without breaking it.

Pros

It organizes editing tools optimally by dividing according to the structural content types of a page.

Cons

Typography is key in design, how can I present a final version of a website without the brand typography?

Best no-code website builder in the market

2019-11-18

With Webflow you do not need to know how to code, you can create websites with static and dynamic content. And it is easy to customize any component.

Pros

The components (tabs, forms, text, etc) are totally customizable as if you were coding.

Cons

The hosting price is higher than other website builders.

Clean UI but not as powerful as Wordpress

2018-12-18

Pros

I like the drag and drop UI and the designer feel to create a website.

Cons

I think Webflow is off to a good start but they still have a long ways to go. Not as good as Wordpress or coding yourself.

Super-fast, super-simple - the go-to for lean startups!

2017-08-09

very quick neat-looking designs (and the code!)

Pros

Very easy to get started with great templates, quite intuitive UI, you can produce professional websites in minutes, adapts itself very neatly to the user

Cons

the design of the side-bar maybe could be a little bit more clean (bigger buttons, less icons and more descriptions (for beginners)

Webflow is a web designer's holy grail

2018-01-18

My web design company can afford to support smaller businesses and non-profits, because our overhead is MUCH lower, now that we don't need to hire a development team.

Pros

For designers, it's crucial, because you can design websites and forego hiring a developer to code it.

Cons

While you can integrate all of these features from external plug-ins, it would make the development process much smoother if these functions were native.

Rick Powell

The most powerful WYSIWYG website builder available

2018-10-12

I was surprised at the power at my disposal, particularly adding content and managing styles but was even more impressed at the UI/UX of the editor.

Pros

As the marketing blurb says: Adding new content is as easy as filling out a form.

Cons

Hosting options are kind of confusing. Simplify them, please.

When design quality matter, there is no better tool to develop a website

2019-10-07

If something is not "built-in" as Webflow element, you can always add any custom code you want and integrate your website with any external tool you use.

Pros

- Ease of use, intuitive - Superfast to develop a website from blank page to end website - Interactions – super intuitive - Continuous product updates based on users' feedback - CMS solutions - When hosted on Webflow, website doesn't need your work on updating any part of the code (f.e. to keep compatibility)

Cons

- Lack of built-in localization features (language select) (But can be done other ways) - None, really, I'm a huge fan of this product!

Good templates, cool features

2019-08-28

Pros

The web templates are awesome and the possibility to add custom code is awesome.

Cons

There are too few official VIDEO guides on YouTube or the internet, in general. The users relay on unprofessional videos that are not that useful

A promising alternative to Wordpress

2019-04-03

After using Webflow for some projects I can say that is the best match for: Small to medium-sized projects brochure-ware like or content-driven where your clients want to edit the content themselves, the editor interface is quite good and you can limit what the editor can edit so you won't end up with a broken page and your clients won't be worried about breaking it either.

Pros

Webflow editor simply rocks, some website builders and over simplistic and as I developer I feel chained of it's developers choices.

Cons

The e-commerce feature is a bit raw yet, for example, you can't add an "Add to cart" button out of the single product view, for some use cases that would add an extra click to the interaction.

Best software to use to create amazing websites fast!

2019-10-11

It's the go-to software my team goes to when in need of a beautifully designed website in a short amount of time!

Pros

- very easy to use and understand; - beautifully designed templates so that your website looks like it's been made by a professional team; - really fast and easy to build an website - you can literally create an outstanding website in a week if not a few days; - cost - you get a lot of benefits just by getting the basic option.

Cons

- limited templates available; - limitations in terms of how you can build the website - there are a few features that are not yet developed and integrated (eg. inserting tables).

Bells & Whistles, but worried about backend functionality

2019-03-20

What I'm finding is that most of my freelance work is for clients who have contracted Devs or a Dev team established and so the biggest feature of Webflow of being able to publish sites directly from design kind of falls through the cracks.

Pros

Being able to have assets and elements export ready is nice.

Cons

Biggest concern for me is that there's no real check to see how the backend of your UI is flowing what you set up on the front end.

Webflow is Easy-to-Use and Affordable

2018-12-14

I have been working with Webflow for about 4 months now and plan to continue using mainly because it performs to my standards, and I feel confident using this software.

Pros

Having done limited work on a website in the past, I pulled up and completed the online training (a 1 hr 55 min video), and within a week, I have feel like a skilled website developer.

Cons

The software is somewhat limited in advanced features and plug-ins for eCommerce have to be added on.

Great for designers with base knowledge of HTML/CSS

2019-03-16

In the end, I was able to go from a high fidelity website mock-up and build it in a modular way for all my different case studies.

Pros

Webflow has allowed me to create a custom portfolio site of my own design without having to restricted to templates or having to dig through code to make small customizations.

Cons

I wish there was the capability to customize the CMS output a bit more, but today it's limited to locked fields and forms. Also, because you can start from scratch, it can be easy to build things in a way that will make it harder for you later on.

Switched from WP, never looking back!

2018-11-16

Pros

We used a designer to custom code our site and setting it up in Webflow made it very easy to transfer over to me.

Cons

If you're not a web designer, the design features are difficult to use, but I believe this is specific to a custom code site.

Front End Development just made so much easier

2018-06-05

Great software to design static webpage and with CMS you can even create dynamic pages in seconds.

Pros

It's so easy to set up Flexbox and it provides some basic common elements such as sliders, nav bars but still customizable. Web animation is also made so much easier.

Cons

I love all the feature Webflow provided but the only thing I can't justify is the pricing for hosting.

Very easy to use - creates websites quickly

2018-04-09

Quick way to create websites

Pros

You don't need to learn HTML or CSS, and everything can be done via the browser and the UI.

Cons

Many functions and features are limited just for the paid package. And you get some level of restrictions because you can't code/modify some details.
