    Behzad, it is not a program.

    Xbuilder is just loads of editable content that you can bring into your website design. You download the content after you pay, the content then resides on your system. From what I have utilized so far, it is very handy with ready made content that looks good. I feel it is good value.

    Cheers,

    Thank you, but don't you think the creator should at least be a bit active, specially on this thread? No doubt it looks good, waiting to see what he does with footers.

    behzad, I agree.

    Regardless, I have just forked out for the Professional Pack and I do have 30 days for a refund.

    I have asked Michal to appear in this Thread to present his bona fides.

    I have had a play with a few of the 743 XBuilder blocks and two of the 102? Templates.
    I have found simple (& elegant) constructions with Guides (!) and code for simple forms as well as designs for up to three Variants.
    When I say "simple", you could do them yourself, if you had the time and the experience. Few of us have gotten to grips with Parallax reveals. Overall, they are far easier to deconstruct than Xara's collection.

    When Xara v15 Upgrade comes out, Magix have declared there are 18 new Templates, which, by my calculations, is $1 each (Half of the Upgrade cost and 2/3 of the development effort to templates as so little seems forthcoming on application code).
    XBuilder is $67 so each Block is under $0.10.
    The All Web Templates bundle is $197, so almost $2 each but if you bundle-bundle you get them all, with XBuilder for free, at $177.

    All in all, just over 1GB of zipped Xara-powered Templates and Blocks.

    There is a free collection at https://xaratemplates.com/free-templates/.

    No endorsement yet and no association with XaraTemplates but with the right integration into Xara's Local design Gallery, i think I have gained a useful collection.

    Even if you have no interest, check out the site Help page: https://xaratemplates.com/help/.
    It has a number of resources that i have found useful. Shame how so many of the Xara help links not bomb.

    P.S. Still showing commitment to the Xara Desktop applications - rah!

    I bought XBuilder and some templates. So far I'm pleased with the purchase. If nothing else comes of it I've been able to glean some ideas from some of the items that I could incorporate into my own sites. I am building a new site with one of the templates and it is looking good so far. A little learning curve on some of the logic, but in a good way as it is showing me how to use WD in ways I had not yet tried. I bought it at a discount, so I think it was worth it. I don't know what the designer of this could add here - it is still a Xara/Magix product that you are using it with.

    Wow, you bought the full collection! I would get lost in so much content: how to choose?!
