Webflow is a website builder that stands out amongst website builders. Website builders such as Wix, Weebly, Squarespace are built with the beginner in mind and while some offer more advanced features, the builders are targeted to non web developers. The website builders works with drag and drop features to make it simple to create websites. Does that mean Webflow isn't for beginners? Beginners can use Webflow, it just has a much larger learning curve than the others. Webflow is built with the Web Designer in mind and is meant to be a "no code" builder, however it does allow you to add code should you have experience, unlike most of the other website builders above.
What does "No Code" mean?
"No Code" refers to the fact that you can drag and drop html tags and add css styling to your website without touching the code by using the component tools for the html elements and using the toolbox properties to add padding, margins, changing fonts, colors, and adding text shadows or box shadows all without touching any html or css code.
What about Ecommerce or Blogs?
What about changing content without breaking the styling?
Wordpress can be complex for a user who was given a website after the designer built the website and can result in broken stylings just by pasting an article written in word and Webflow offers a solution for this very scenario. It's called "Editor" and can allow a user editor access rather than designer access and the "editor" user can only replace text and images. A webflow designer can style the site including a "rich text" component and nested styles which allow the "editor" to paste in a word article which would normally break wordpress style or require manual editing afterwards, but instead the Webflow editor mode keeps the h tags headings and paragraphs and uses the styling set by the designer mode without manual editing. This is a big advantage of Webflow as it allows non technical users the ability to edit their website after a Webflow Web Designer has handed off the project. This can save a company from hiring a staff member with wordpress experience or paying the wordpress web designer to make any changes including just pasting new articles.
