Reviews of Webflow
No-Code Web Builder
Comments: I really love the functionality of the drag and drop interface of web flow. It's very easy to understand and customize, I also like the ability to create customize interactions directly to the interface. I have been able to create my own personal site in a short period of time without a background knowledge in coding. If you want to have full control over the website but you are afraid or you don't have experience at all in coding, Webflow is a good choice.
Webflow has a great community to help you understand the platform. Webflow University is a free resource that helps beginners to understand deeply its full functionality. It has free cloneable content that allows you to use and customize. You can customize your site design for different break-points (different device sizes) using Webflow's built-in responsive. You can publish your site anytime you want and access it in the web. It's basically a no-code environment which is pretty awesome for the beginners like me.
I have been struggling with using CMS. It's very hard for me to understand it. Given the idea that it is one of the best features and a game changer of Webflow. I really do need to figure it out and understand it since they are providing informative tutorials.
The best website designer out there
Comments: Webflow is a professional tool that I am very comfortable working with. I use it practically every day with pleasure.
Webflow is the best solution for designers who want to build high-level web experiences without the support of a development team. The design tool is the most advanced in the industry, and although it has a somewhat steep learning curve at first, it offers great freedom in design choices. The excellent design tool is accompanied by an integrated hosting solution with excellent performance and a robust CMS.
Although the potential and flexibility of the platform are very high, there are some situations in which one finds oneself having to rely on third-party solutions to turn around the shortcomings of the tool. Developing and deploying new features isn't particularly fast. In some usage scenarios, the costs are too high. Especially eCommerce solutions are excessively expensive for what they offer. Although there is an intention, I have not yet had the chance to offer my customers a Webflow eCommerce solution because it is too expensive.
Bad support and bugs
Comments: In two adjectives: BAD and ANNOYING, I regret it.
In the beginning, I thought Webflow would really be the tool to help me solve the problems I was hoping to solve, but not, they created new ones that this time, without a website developer around one can't fix it. Then you ask for support help and the answer you get is "it seems you are asking for web development services, we don't offer that, please ask for help in the community". This has happened to me endless times in the last 2 years with LEGIT questions on bugs I found in this tool. I do NOT recommend that you use it or switch from WordPress or something else thinking you are really going to get the next level here, because you are not. I hope this feedback doesn't get canceled or blocked because it is real and can help other people to make their decision.
Bad support No support for multiple languages Limit to 100 pages (then everything crashes) Bugs!!!!
Clean and User-Friendly Web Builder
Comments: Love the results once I mastered the menus and customization options. My website is clean, precisely what I wanted, and has the look of a professionally designed site.
Tons of template options, easily customizable, variety of layouts and options per page and style
Learning curve in customizing existing headers/ footers for pages, some features easier to navigate than others
Webflow can be the best option, for some.
Comments: I have a very pleasant experience with Webflow and it allows me to create beautiful websites.
There is a learning curve on using Webflow. It is best to follow their own Webflow University which is free, but will take up multiple hours of your time. You will also need some basic knowledge of how the web works and how websites are build.
