Powerful and flexible!

2019-02-18

Pros

You can do almost anything with Wordpress and the community is always super helpful. It's amazing how often I've thought about something I'd need to build, only to realize there was a free or cheap plugin already available that I could buy and quickly plug into my site. I've set up a few sites and it gets easier every time.

Cons

I've found tools like Webflow are a bit less complex to get set up for a novice developer (or someone with no development experience).

Great number of plugins and themes, but the underlying infrastructure is slow

2018-11-16

There are a number of tools that allow you to build a great looking website way faster than using WordPress and that feature a lot more flexibility (e.g. Webflow). Yes, there are tons of themes very reasonably priced, but as soon as you want to customise them slightly different than how they were designed, you either need to know how to code yourself, or you need to hire someone.

Pros

It's very easy to start a blog, the hosting is very cheap nowadays, lots of themes to choose from and an impressive amount of plugins to help you build your website without coding skills.

Cons

It's overall slow, difficult to customise without good programming knowledge and the underlying infrastructure is obsolete. Poor performance overall and a convoluted CMS for anything else but a blog.

A really awesome product with certain limitations.

2018-08-01

Pros

As a designer i really fell in love with this product, it's really slick, really well designed and just plain fun to use.

Cons

Since i create websites for a living, i often need to go back to Wordpress because of certain limitations which i can solve in 2 minutes with the right plugin on Wordpress but most of the time i can do what need to do and won't rely on Wordpress.

Clean UI but not as powerful as Wordpress

Pros

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

Not as good as Wordpress or coding yourself.

Great alternative to Wordpress!

2018-03-06

Great for putting up landing pages for testing new business ideas. Great placeholder for someone that wants a website but doesn't know how to code or have the funds to pay an agency.

Pros

Webflow is much better than Wordpress in that it lets you to create advanced website features and interactions without needing to know how to code or procure and install various plugins.

Cons

The learning curve for Webflow is much higher than a Wordpress or Wix alternative.

Sleek and simple

2018-11-07

Pros

Webflow does a great job outputting sleek, simple, minimalistic looking website designs. The best part is how they let you export the code so you don't even need to purchase anything if you're only using it for one website. I would definitely come back to them even if I needed to pay.

Cons

I feel like I had only ever heard of SquareSpace, WordPress, Weebly, etc. and Webflow has been my favorite when it comes to website building.

Great for non-developers to make websites!

2019-01-18

I really like Webflow and I would recommend it to any small business that wants to have a website, it has more options and flexibility than WordPress, Wix and Squarespace.

Pros

I like how WebFlow does all the coding for me, I don't have to worry about it at all. I can play around with different designs fairly easily without the hassle of actually writing code.

Cons

Finding resources to fix something that has gone wrong is fairly technical. There's definitely a learning curve, but once you get through that there's a lot of power in webflow.

Webflow is a highly capable platform for creating websites, though possibly too complex for some.

2018-04-05

Pros

Compared to a platform like WordPress, Webflow is incredibly forward thinking, and on top of modern web design trends.

Cons

For novice/non technical users though some aspects of the UI can be confusing and a bit hidden. Users without a solid understanding of best web design practices will struggle to get the best out of the visual page builders. The learning curve is much steeper than a Wix/Squarespace alternative, for those users who aren't focused on creating a website from scratch.

Perfect; if they removed the ringfence.

2018-05-15

Pros

The system promises to beat WordPress, hands down as it doesn’t confuse the use of CSS for style and HTML for content.

Cons

The Webflow hosting service is ridiculously expensive compared to most other good hosting services (even accounting for the CDN provision) and the system will only allow you to export code for static sites, meaning if you want to use the powerful CMS (the best part of the entire offering) you are bound to Webflow’s hosting. Deal breaker for me.

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 pretty much an alternative of Wordpress but so much more easier and flexible.

Cons

I love all the feature Webflow provided but the only thing I can't justify is the pricing for hosting. When another web hosting company provides the same service for a month and Webflow is dollar. It's hard to sell it to my clients.

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

Overall I love that I don't need to worry about the sites speed or Security (a big thing if you are a Wordpress developer, for example).

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. Consider simple elements like different tickets for an event that you already explained, taking a user to a single view makes no sense there. Also the e-commerce plan is expensive, in my opinion. For that price, I could use Shopify for example. The pricing plans sometimes feel a bit complicated to understand, maybe renaming Account plans for Freelancer or Reseller plans could help.
