Createer Introduction

December 23, 2014

Merry Christmas Everyone!
If you still haven't emailed out your Christmas cards or simply want to include one in your website, try our upcoming content design tool Createer.
Or grab some Christmas photos from BillionPhotos.com

We also started receiving questions about Createer, thus here is basic information about what it is, how it is different from Artisteer, and whether you may need it.
Let’s start with Artisteer, which is a web template design tool, helping you quickly design the overall look of your website, including background, borders, colors, header, texture graphics, menu, font styling, etc.
The “web template” is basically the common design applied to all (or most) pages on your website, giving them a uniform and consistent look. Whenever people visit various pages on your website, each page is shown with consistent look given to it by the web template.
The main problem with web templates is that they may look deceiving because once you load them into your WordPress or Joomla based website, your website may look quite different and “poor” without any content, when it is still fresh and doesn’t have any pages. The content/pages are usually not a part of web template and are included in web templates only as a sample of how your website may look like with such pages/content.
When you create a “page” in WordPress, Joomla or other systems, you are actually writing content, thus many people use the words “page” and “content” interchangeably. Creating a “page” means writing “content”. Without such pages or content you can only have an empty skeleton of a website formed by the web template.
This means that to make your website truly look good, you also need to create your own pages/content that would be displayed within the web template.
Most of the content can be a basic text, such as blog post that you may write, or your contact information within “Contact Us” page.
But what if you need to design a truly outstanding content for your home page, to present your products and services? Or maybe you’d want to create a price comparison table showing various pricing plans you’re offering to your customers? Or how about designing a nice looking restaurant menu page for a restaurant website?
That’s where Createer, the upcoming online content design tool, comes in. You can use Createer to design content that goes inside your web page. Just take a look at Createer Design Templates and imagine placing such content within your pages.
Does it look better than just the plain text?
Createer also offers WordPress plugin and Joomla plugin, so that you can edit your pages visually right within the WordPress or Joomla, instead of writing text using the basic text editor.
Or if you create HTML websites, try adding the Createer Button to your pages, which will let you edit your content right within your website.

Createer is being developed in partnership with Artisteer, but by a separate team.
Createer is 99% functional and working, but it is available as “Beta” until additional testing is finalized and responsive features are added.
You can use Createer for free for creating basic designs, while more advanced designs may cost $1 or more, depending on the features and number of images you use. Subscription options are also available.
When you sign up for Createer you’ll receive $5 in free credits to try it out and create your initial design(s).
Give it a try!

Please note that version 4.2 Beta will work only in Trial mode if your free upgrade period has expired.
For more information on our upgrade policy please refer to our FAQ. You can check your upgrade subscription status here.

NOTE: Starting with version 4.2 Artisteer will require online connection when exporting Joomla, WordPress and Drupal templates. This change was due to unauthorized hacks and software theft by people who simply wanted to put us out of business by cracking and distributing Artisteer for free. Our only choice was to stop funding product development and stop improving the product, or to move some of the software functionality to an online server. We chose to support our customers and continue developing Artisteer while moving some of its internal features online. Overall Artisteer will work the same way as previously, you will just need to be connected to the internet while exporting your templates.
Please also note that Artisteer template export can be updated automatically, therefore we don't always need to release new Artisteer versions to make small improvements and fix certain bugs.

If you are still experiencing any crashes or issues with Artisteer please report them to our product support.
