    "Gets better with every update"

    February 11, 2012  |   By bbftx

    Version: Flux 3.2.47

    Pros

    Very flexible website tool; more so than the template based offerings out there. Best for people that either know the basics of CSS and html or are willing to learn.

    Cons

    Not pure drag and drop, but that's the price you pay for increased flexibility and power.
    Would like to see more widgets and actions added.

    "Buggy and hasn't developed substantially for a yea..."

    July 19, 2010  |   By Pancapangrawit

    Version: Flux 2.48.2

    Summary

    ...
    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Conceptually really cool and - as far as I can see - standing alone in the MacWorld - except, of course, for the much more expensive Dreamweaver. You can edit visually, and the code will change, and you can edit the code/source and the preview will change instantly.
    BUT: the program is not robust at all. If you enable autocomplete in the source, it will crash any minute. There are many-many inconsistencies or little bugs in the User-Interface. The site-manager's ftp access is not general enough and creates a lot of problems, no way to update links site-wise, no time-based two-way merge/synchronisation. The source-editor is also still quite weak, the code generated is not well formatted...
    I would say in terms of functionality the program is cool but buggy for visual editing part and very basic/fragmentary for the site-manager and source-editors. Flux seems to be a great idea where the developer lost momentum in the middle of the way, and now posts almost weekly updates here and on MacUpdates with very minor fixes but hasn't addressed the major insufficiencies for months... Sad, because it appeared very promising...

    "Useless for me"

    May 9, 2009  |   By Skywoolf--2008

    Version: Flux 2.16

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I just downloaded it. Open a site folder on my hard disk then looked at one file. I did not save anything. I just looked.

    When I came to work on the file later the PHP tags had been removed and the replaced with Flux comments. Fortunately this file had only one PHP tag include a menu. Some of my pages have hundreds of PHP tags that would have taken hours to put right.

    I will not open the application again. It goes in the trash

    "Waring! Waring! Do not use!!!!!!!"

    May 12, 2008  |   By virtualshift

    Version: Flux 1.2.5

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    This thing just added over an hour worth of work going back and deleting all the extra css it just had to add to my stylesheet with out me saving anything!! I keep seeing this thing pop up on VT and now they have a sail over on macZOT so I thought I would download it and see for myself how good it really was. I have been working on a web project for a new clint all weekend and Flux just decided to go and add a bunch on useless code with out telling me what it was doing! Just my css for the logo went form:
    #logo{
    position:relative;
    height:140px;
    width:720px;
    background:#003300 url(img/logo.jpg) no-repeat 0 0;
    text-indent:-9999px;
    }

    too

    #logo{
    position:relative;
    float:none;
    left:0px;
    top:0px;
    height:140px;
    width:720px;
    background-image:url(img/logo.jpg);
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    background-position:top left;
    background-color:#003300;
    background-attachment:scroll;
    text-indent:-9999px;

    }
    and then it has the balls to tell me my xhtml can not be saved because it can not be validate. BS - it validate just fine.

    "I wanted to like this..."

    March 27, 2008  |   By electric1--2008

    Version: Flux 1.1.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    The idea of this program is good - not great - but workably good....

    EXCEPT FLUX is slow, very slow.

    Their own CSS provided TEMPLATES - didn't validate. Too many errors.

    Selecting was okay - but slow.

    Documentation differs from what they have on their website. So use their website help - rather than the supplied Help file with the program. Also - their website doco is inside their website - which has a very small window - and quite annoying to navigate - but to get questions answered - you're better off at their website.

    Their website screams that the program is out of beta -
    my opinion is that this program still has a long way to go - so I'll restate this differently:

    This program has potential - just needs a lot more work !!!
