    Sorry, every time I go back to edit the site, something is missing from my Gallery, items that are loaded when building the site, preview mode is not working now, this is all because I have not renewed it as required per year for the latest version, I have sites up now using this program, that need rebuilding in another website builder, a real pain. Admin have been of no help what so ever….

      We have used Mobirise to build-out our entire website. While there is some skepticism around HTML versus WordPress, we prefer the flexibility of AMP and Bootstrap that the Mobirise themes afford us. We have also opted in for all 66 extensions for the platform and they have become a lifesaver. We have used all the popular builders (Web Expressions, Square, Wix, WordPress, etc.); so far Mobirise has some challenges for team collaboration and integration with platforms such as Mailchimp and InfusionSoft but overall it is a great software!

      Mobirise was my best-ever web-developer experience. Until 2 weeks ago.With the new 4.9.6 version, the carousel slider now has a hitch in it, and Mobirisedoesn’t answer my email requests for an explanation.That might be because of my initial less-than-cordial complaint about the matter.But heck, it’s free, so I’ll live with it.

        mobirise pages load extremely fast. AMP is a big deal when it comes to site rankings and I don’t know of anything faster that is as easy to use. Coffee Cup is great also, but there is a much steeper learning curve IMHO. We moved from WordPress to Mobirise and there is simply no comparison in terms of page load time and the look and feel of the website. Still trying to figure out how we will handle blogging. That would be a nice feature addition.

        I started using Mobirise for my own small business (zzp) some time ago, at least 1.5 years. I think that it was better at that time. The last period of 2018 I get really annoyed by the fact that my website rarely looks te same on a PC/browser and varies all the time when you have a different size screen or you browser window differently sized. Initially that was often fine, now it never is…..words brake up, structures are off and drives me mad, customers get the wrong impression about my company.There are also some nasty quirks and bugs with some buttons and font sizes, jumping back or appearing wrong when you have uploaded the pages to the hosting http://FTP.Currently on a well deserved vacation I am looking into other options to rebuild my website, as I can not recommend Mobirise anymore.

        I have used Mobirise for a year or so, and have not had my webiste picked up by google yet! I think is because all the css files go to mobirise.com – Do you know if it is possible to change css files to go to own website. thanks Joan

          Hi Joan! I apologize, but I’m not sure how to do what you describe with the CSS files. However, if you pose this question to the forums on Mobirise’s website — found at https://forums.mobirise.com/ — you’ll likely get a more helpful response than what I can provide.

          Cheers,
          Jason

            I started using Mobirise about 3 months ago – I built a fairly simple site for one of my business – I had a few issues – as mentioned above there are links to Mobirise all over the place, which as I have paid for a package I find unacceptable – However I then built a more complicated website for a second business to promote my shop – this has been OK although the forms are totally inadequate, and integrating pages created outside Mobirise in a nightmare.My big problem is I have created a large ecommerce website to sell excursions – and suddenly I could not get access to it – Mobirise could not find it – I have been on to their support several times – it is now 7 days and they still have not found a solution – meanwhile my business is losing money – as I need to update, fix errors and integrate proper enquiry / booking forms I have created outwith Mobirise -There are some things that you cannot access with their code editor – I have also found that it is sometimes necessary to edit the CSS – as when you don’t want one of their buttons or little displays – if you leave them blank they still have space allocated – you need to then find the CSS which creates them and remove it.I have also had problems with updating my sites – it sometimes takes several attempts to upload changes – and I have frequently had to remove and replace and redo a block before the changes take affect. There are bugs, but on the whole if you want a simple website – this is easy – perhaps I am expecting too much.

            your review is good. You missed the fact that Mobirise adds self promotional links both in default settings and in javascript that add more self promoting links. in a 5 page site, the number is over 100 and in some cases many more. In the assets javascript folders there are snippetes that add “external links” back to the mobirise site. Many users are unhappy with the self promotion and while okay in a free builder, authors paying $200-$300 a year for all the addons, this is not the way to support authors.Additionally, Mobirise has poor support, responding to questions submitted with the program but for the most part never answering any questions.Finally, Mobirise say you pay for the add ons like “code editor” like $69, then after a year they promise it will renew for 50% off, then they ask for a full fee of $69 again. That is 1- fraud in advertising, 2-ripping off customers.Last thought – mobirise has good intentions, but their product remain in a BETA product. Each new version released creates new bugs. The Mobirise team out of the netherlands launches new themes and extensions to keep the money coming in, while any focus on getting the product to work is “we’ll work on that later.”If you are looking for a site builder that works and is professional, Mobirise should not be on you list to consider.
