I know the team at webflow is bombarded with ideas on things to add or change. I have a number of ideas too, but today, I just want to focus on one.
I wish that Webflow was not only drag and drop but also provided “stress-free” layouts. For example, I can use Divi by Elegant Themes, and drag and drop myself Wordpress website.
Here is the major difference between these two platforms (beside the fact that Divi is only for Wordpress): I don’t have to worry about settings like positioning, such as auto, static, relative, and absolute. I don’t have to worry about floats and clears. I don’t have to worry about whether or not a section of my design is going to somehow overlap another (in fact, I have a current issue with this exact issue and can’t get it fixed and haven’t had anyone respond to me in the forum).
Because of how webflow is built, sometimes layouts can take a lot longer than needed to layout a website. Usually after a hour or two of not being able to find a solution, I will post something in the forums. But… as many of you know, sometimes things go unanswered or the feedback didn’t fix the issue, and sometimes it takes days to get a response. Meanwhile, that project you are working on is in limbo.
I am offering all of this because I truly want to help make this platform better. In my opinion, no one should have to waste that kind of time finishing a website simply because they are stuck with things like this. There has got to be a better way! Eliminating the need to have to worry with this is the top wish of mine for Webflow.
I get it, Webflow is essentially a visual way of writing code, but I just want to build websites. I would rather not have to take the time to go learn the fundamentals of writing HTML / CSS just to do what I want to do. I just want to sit down, create what I’m envisioning in my head and NOT have to worry about the other stuff.
Webflow, can this be a reality?
