I've not used Homestead for a while. I prefer the old SiteBuilder and I'm having trouble finding the hundreds of templates that used to be available in it.

Everyone likes the old one until they become familiar with the new one. Just like when you started out with Sitebuilder, you found it difficult. The more experience you got, the better your results got. Give SB+ 8-12 hours of rebuilding your old site, you'll find all kinds of good reasons to keep it.

I liked the old SB templates - where can I find them.  There were a whole lot of them. Where are they?  I don't want to switch to SB+

Dianne4825,

I am sorry but those templates no longer exist. The only way to see all available templates is to switch to Sitebuilder Plus.

Thanks

Respectfully disagree themieleman. SB+ definitely does not surpass
Desktop Site Builder in my humble opinion. Plus is slow, buggy, non-intuitive and time consuming. It takes a lot longer to do anything on Plus than it does Desktop simply due to the way it's structured. I've worked with Desktop for 11+ years and with Plus since they introduced it and thus have lots of hours in using each of them. I have clients on both and cringe whenever I have to work on a Plus site. I think that having a broader choice of cookie cutter sites (templates) is not reason enough to choose Plus. To each his own I guess.

I built my site with Sitebuilder. After working with SB+ for a day or two, I never looked back.

As I said, to each his/her own

I liked the way you used to be able to copy a link from page to page. That convenience is missed.

Hi Penny6409,

You should be able to copy from page to page.  Can you tell us more about what you are having a problem with?

You can copy a link from page to page with SB+. The new features out weigh the old. Website development is much improved with SB+.

With SB+ you can use a wider template format.

No new R&D and eventual obsolescence.

We could carry this out ad nauseum, but you stated your opinion and I stated mine. I'd prefer to leave it at that rather than dragging this out and boring the community to death.
