Thank you. And this is not the “SiteBuilder Lite” editing software, but a new fully Mac compatible software allowing not just editing but also building a website??
How long have you been using the new Websitebuilder? What are the pros and cons? How do you like it? Thanks so much!

Yes, I am also referring to WebsiteBuilder. I hesitated to make the transition when it was first released, but I'm so glad I did! It is mobile friendly, and I was able to update my site to HTTPS for greater security. www.cathyginter.com

Sitebuilder Plus has been available for Mac for nearly 10 years and can edit older Sitebuilder desktop sites.
Websitebuilder is also an online program and produces a more modern looking site, including a mobile version.

So, with the new WebsiteBuilder there will be no need to use the “SiteBuilder Lite” editing online program? Because last time when I used it recently it was not working correctly, it was too slow to ‘save’ and ‘publish’ and the published pages had a strange address with alien letters/numbers and a ? mark attached at the end. When I had my old website built with the SiteBuilder and did it on PC everything was fine, but I couldn’t do the same on my Mac, because homestead was not compatible with Apple. Is the new Websitebuilder compatible with Apple, so I don’t have to use “online program” SiteBuilder Lite?
I just found this on Homestead about incompatibility of Homestead and Apple, is it an old issue or it is current?

You have not had access to Sitebuilder Lite for 4 years. Sitebuilder Plus is Apple compatible and is an online builder online. It can edit an existing site. Any issue you may have had with Sitebuilder Plus was not because you used an Apple.
If you create a Websitebuilder site, you can only use Websitebuilder online for that site. Websitebuilder and Sitebuilder Plus are both online, but completely separate programs.
