Constructing a Site With XSitePro V2 and DLGuard

Even though I can build web sites with html or use Dreamweaver and Frontpage I am not an qualified web page designer and to be straightforward I wrestle with program and scripts. Accepting my limitations I bought the XSitePro world wide web design and style program in 2007 and upgraded to XSitePro V2 final year.

When I initial acquired XSitePro I crafted my digital obtain web-site entirely working with that. Made use of Paypal as my payment processor and had thank you webpages with obtain one-way links for each individual item. It was a cheerful but not extremely expert searching web-site. I was fond of my efforts but there were being issues with my obtain one-way links getting accessed by cheats and as time handed I started to cringe at the unprofessional glance of my web page.

As I had designed a major investment decision in some program named Memberspeed I made a decision to rebuild the web-site working with that. Even though the program was meant to build membership sites it has a purchasing cart and short article directory which intended that I would get regularly up-to-date content material to help the web-site alongside in the look for engines.

Wonderful but the lethal flaws were being that working with the program was time consuming and hard for me to determine out and that it wasn’t adaptable sufficient. For somebody with higher web page design and style techniques it may well not be a problem but for me it was. My web page seemed much more expert on the surface due to the fact I utilised a ready crafted Memberspeed template, but the purchasing cart seemed an uninviting mess that I simply did not have the techniques to rectify.

Sales disappeared and one more solution was named for. I wished portion of the solution to be XSitePro V2 due to the fact I love working with it. I have tried out to use other purchasing carts but discover them hard to fully grasp and I don’t discover them adaptable sufficient for my constrained techniques. I had regularly viewed posts in message boards about working with DLGuard as a purchasing cart, or without a doubt paying memberships. Most but not all of the posters recommended DLGuard, but not every person is going to like the similar matter.

A person day a issue was asked about irrespective of whether or not DLGuard could be integrated with XSitePro V2. The replies were being all in the constructive and when I checked out some of the sites indicated as working with the two I was fairly amazed. A well timed payment from Google Adsense was deposited into my PayPal account so I believed ‘go on girl go for it’.

I bought DLGuard for the princely sum of $146.05 which includes VAT. Just before I could use it I desired to build the bones of a web-site, and getting an impatient bod it was a great career that I had the pace of XSitePro. I utilised XHeader (a freebie with XSitePro V2) to make the header and utilised the numerous inbuilt design and style attributes to build the relaxation of the web-site. Not best but it seems much more expert than my initial digital obtain web-site and I can make alterations extremely easily.

My next step was to unzip DLGuard and upload it to my web page adhering to fairly easy guidelines. It wasn’t extensive in advance of I would uploaded my initial item and added my Getresponse autoresponder particulars. That is crafted in with the two XSitePro and DLGuard so that was the easy portion.

My next step was to redesign the DLGuard purchasing cart to make it glance like my web page design and style. I sat and seemed at the monitor, scratched my head a couple of instances in advance of I made a decision that I was out of my depth. I went on to the DLGuard and XSitePro message boards searching for how to tutorials and could not discover any. I believed about it for a whilst and made a decision that the only way to do what I wished was to experiment.

I had a record of alterable DLGuard webpages so I visited my sites Cpanel and viewed the resource information. I wished to edit them but getting cautious I copied the resource information into notepad in advance of I started. That way if I boobed I would be capable to substitute the initial resource information.

An hour later I had added my new header to the purchasing cart, altered the qualifications color and a couple of other points to give the look of integration. Thinking about how hopeless I am with scripts and program and my absence of design and style abilities I have amazed myself with what I have accomplished.

My web page now has an integrated purchasing cart and my downloads are safe from cheats. It has adaptability in that I can insert posts and assessments promptly and when I want. To my eyes it seems much better than the preceding two layouts and it’s even commenced to make revenue again following a spell in the doldrums.

A person little glitch was with my initial sale on the new web-site. I had redesigned the item obtain website page and to check to see if all the things was working I lowered a item to $.01 and bought it with a joint Paypal account that I have with a husband or wife. As I was screening I acquired named absent and when I acquired back again to my computer system somebody else had bought the item and instructed me that the obtain link failed to work. No it failed to due to the fact I hadn’t uploaded the blooming item at that level. But, never brain the decreased selling price than standard sale examined the relaxation of the work that I would performed and confirmed me that yes XSitePro and DLGuard do work jointly and it isn’t all that hard.
