SB+ operates in the cloud. The Homestead staff can switch you over during Homestead business hours.

This account uses the new Websitebuilder. It is an online program. Log into Homestead and go to the Websites manager page. You can choose a design or if you have already, edit the site.

Is there a way to go back to Sitebuilder.  I hate the new Websitebuilder.  I can't add HTML and hide it.  Even though I go in the advanced and put hide it doesn't work, I can't use mouseover effects like the old builder.  Instead of clicking what i added and hit delete I have to go into the tool bar and delete.  It is so much harder to use than Sitebuilder.  If I can't use sitebuilder than I will have to find another company to build my website.  This websitebuilder is frustrating.

SB+ is old technology. It is not responsive. I'd recommend you stick with the new software and reap the benefits of mobile friendly software. This is the future.
If you insist on using SB+, the homestead staff will assist you during business hours tomorrow.

Hi!
I am one of those "old dogs" that needs to learn new tricks. I have been with Homestead for at least 9 or 10 years and am still using , I guess,the original site builder. Of course, my site is extremely outdated......
 
First, what is site builder PLUS? I would like to have drop down menus and would like my site to be "responsive" (whatever that is?) Will I still be able to use site builder plus the way I use site builder? What are the differences? What is the new software mentioned above?

Thanks!

SB+ is similar to sitebuilder desktop. SB+, of course, is the new version of sitebuilder and the software operates in the cloud. No need to load the SB+ program on your cpu. The new Website Builder is a "Responsive Design" and enable mobile friendly sites to be built with new features like Drop Down Menus. As usual, there are many advantages to using new software. The world is changing and leaving the old sitebuilder behind.

rl6850, What are you having trouble doing? You can do some form customization in Websitebuilder, but currently all the options that Sitebuilder Plus has are not there. Drop down menus are only available in Websitebuilder. In Sitebuilder Plus, you would need to do that in HTML.

in sb+ I was able to have drop down menus for different items they could pick the item thy want along with information I asked for then submit and I would get that info in my email. that is what I need to do. I do not care about the search engine or mobile site all my business comes from my customers.

I understand. The drop down form element. Unfortunately, that is not yet available in Websitebuilder forms. You can use a 3rd party form builder like jotform.com and see if they have the desired feature. I can switch the site so you can use Sitebuilder instead, but you would lose all the work you have done in Websitebuilder.
