So there won't be a need for us to continue with our DUDA MOBILE PHONE SITES -- because this will be handled by the new Homestead responsive format?  We'll all be assured of having a 100% Mobile Site that will pass the Google Mobile Phone Test and we won't need to continue with our Duda Mobile phone websites then?  Much thanks!

Michele, that is correct. The mobile friendly is built right in. If you create a site with Website builder then you will not need to have a Duda account for that site. Duda will still be required for the older Sitebuilder sites.

So if our current site is Sitebuilder Plus we will need to rebuild with the Website builder? Thanks!

Jennifer3538, You may keep the current site and edit in Sitebuilder Plus. If you choose to use the new builder you would have to rebuild it. The new builder will not be able to open the old Sitebuilder or Sitebuilder Plus sites.

Sounds kind of good. I been wanting to update my site for a while. Not sure if I was thinking from scratch. I will step back and wait it out till all bugs are out before I jump into this new version I guess. I did try the Duda mobile and my pages never matched up from looking at my iPhone to my desktop. Stuff was all over the place, missing, or scrambled. Will this new version stop all that? I'm not afraid to start over, just would like the desktop to be close to the phone for my customers.

Last question... Will this $2.00 more per month give us logo free stamping on our site as well as mobile? You know like Duda, I was doing the free mobile ready and they stamp their Duda logo everywhere.

I guess I should start thinking of a full new website face.

Hi Jay, The mobile site will not contain ads like Dudamobile. The one thing I do not know is if the templates will include the Homestead footer that Sitebuilder Plus has. If it does, it should be easily removed.

Thanks for the info.

You have an idea of when this will be ready?

I don't have a date yet, but all resources are working to get it done as soon as possible. We are on the final steps which is integrating the new builder to the accounts. Hopefully it won't be much longer.
