Hi All,First time posting, but you all were the first ones I thought of when this question came up.The staff person over our current website (website is aprox. 10-20% or less of his daily job) is wanting to move to Wix, Weebly, or Square. Currently, we have a Wordpress site that we hired some developers to make for us. The struggle the staff person is having is that the updates on WP widgets when updated break other functionality on the site or making simple changes (like changing the images in the front page slider) causing bigger unrelated problems (in the photo slider example, uploading a new photo caused the english and spanish pages to merge content in coherently). The reason for the move from WP to one of the other hosts/companies is that they control their widgets first having 3rd parties build them and then the site won't break so easily.My initial thought is that I've heard some critique for the Wix, Weebly, and Square in terms of quality of options, widget functions, someone once said they don't do as well in SEO, etc. Personally, I've not used Wix or Weebly in two years so I'm out of date so all of the critiques could be irrelevant.
In your experience, if you have a non IT/non-web developer person running the website do you stay/use WP or move to a user-friendly site like Wix/Weebly/Square? If you use Wix/Weebly/Square would you recommend them?
Thank you for your thoughts and advice!
I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble with WordPress.
If you need (or plan) to collect protected health information on your website, you will need to confirm that your host is HIPAA compliant. I don't believe that Wix, Weebly, or Squarespace provide HIPAA compliant hosting.If HIPAA compliance is not a requirement, I understand the appeal of a service like Wix, Weebly, and Squarespace. The WordPress content management experience can be managed by non-developers if your site is designed for that user group.Before migrating to a different service, I recommend documenting what issues need to be addressed in your current setup and confirm how your new content management system will resolve those issues.If you would like help with your current setup, we have an office in Richardson. We're almost neighbors. :)
