Hi. I have received the email inviting me to use the new website builder. I have followed the directives but I do not want to modify anything on my website. It is as if I need to redo it all.

If you do not wish to rebuild your site in the newer builder, then you do not have to. The email was simply to let you know about the option

Hi Brigitte- I know it seems like a great pain to rebuild your site, but I can tell you from experience that it is worth considering.  With all the changes to how Google searches are done and the social media aspects of marketing your business, the new software is SO much better.  The pages resize for any screen, a built in mobile version makes your site easier to use on a mobile device (and 70% of people are now using mobile to view sites) so it can actually help you with your business.  The Duda Mobile version isn't supported anymore and it looks terrible.  Even though you have to rebuild from scratch, the easiest way to do that is to open your site in a separate window and select and paste the text.  You can grab all your old files from SiteBuilder onto your computer and just plop them into the File Manager (found under ELEMENTS in the WebsiteBuilder window)  Yes you have to relink everything and learn some new tools, but the result will be a great benefit to your business.  Just think about it.

Hi Brigitte,
I also urge you to consider upgrading to Web Builder. It is free. It changed my life. So many more features that allow me to now look like a professional rather than an amateur. I also was annoyed that I would have to redo it but it allowed me to update things that I had put off forever. It is relatively easy. And you can keep your old site active while you build your new one, so there's no hurry. Once you have your new website ready to publish, you just transfer your domain name to your new website.
