    Hi friends,

    I was looking at Elegant Themes and they have a new "drag and drop feature."

    From the program...it looks like you can do a WSIWIG design.

    • Has anyone used it or tried it---if so what is your impression of it?
    • Is it good and worth the extra money?
    • ALSO---hearing mixed reviews with Elegant---anyone using them?

    ~your constructive input is greatly appreciated...thanks

    I haven't used it, but my impression about WSIWIG creators are they don't produce the best code.

    I didn't tried this one but i heard something about this. Most of the WordPress themes from Elegant Themes have user-friendly features that allow even the newbies to manage their own website according to their preferences. Good Luck!

    I don't have an elegant theme personally, but some of my clients have elegant themes and they are really happy with them. So I suppose that is allright :)

    I like Elegant themes in that you can build a good looking site in a couple of hours with them. The downsides are customising them is difficult and let's just say some of there themes have unusual functions. I have given up with a couple of their themes when I was spending half a day trying to do something that would take me 20 minutes with another theme.

    Last site I built with Elegant used their "Gleam" theme. I believe that's one of their latest but I didn't see a wysiwyg menu. Do you mean short codes ?

    Hey Duff,

    No...they have a new WSIGWIG feature that is Drag and Drop. Not sure how good it is...but its included with their premium membership of $90. Check it out on their website.

    I have the subscription and them for client sites, they work great... I should say, they are excellent for the price and quality.

    The new features are even more good...
