The world is a dynamic place, and as such, every living thing within exhibits some form of dynamism. There was a time when there was no internet, and it’s amazing when you try to imagine how life was without the internet. The internet came and revolutionized the dissemination of data and information, and then search engines were created to make life easy. Soon businesses and individuals alike began to see the need to be part of this revolution, hence the need to optimize their websites to rank tops on search engines. But the revolution did not just stop there, to own a website; you were either a backend programmer or had to employ the services of one. However, even web designs have evolved, now there are “Do It Yourself” platforms where you can easily create your website by just dragging and dropping elements, one of such platforms is “Mobirise Website Builder.”
Mobirise Website Builder is a free offline web creator that allows for the creation of websites, using a front-end framework. This invariably means you can create a website without being tech-savvy.
The website builder runs on the Android, Windows and macOS platforms and does not need the user going to a school for programming to learn how to code, all that is required of the user is knowing what suitable elements they need to drag and drop, with minor text edits according to taste. It is suitable for creating landing pages, startups, promo websites, small businesses, and entrepreneurs etc. who are looking to carve a niche for themselves on the internet.
Here are some features of Mobirise Website Builder:
Mobirise definitely leads the pack as a simple website builder; the simplicity is second to none. The graphical interface is easy to navigate, to use, and it is also very functional. The drag and drop feature adds more simplicity to the already simple builder. All users need to do is know what the structure of their website should look like, then drag and drop elements to fill the site with the user-required contents. It is that simple!
Mobirise website builder lets you create your website using blocks (or themes, or premade website templates) that come in various designs. These blocks are modern, responsive and have uniqueness about them that differentiate them from each other, and this is as regards their functionality; functionalities like forms, headers, sliders, contents, galleries, color, background etc. are reflected differently in each block. Furthermore, users have the ability to adjust the elements contained within a block to suit their requirements. Users can toggle between smartphone, tablet and desktop view, to know how responsive the website will look across these three platforms.
As far as Mobirise is concerned, the builder is very functional. The moment the user sees the dashboard, that eagerness and inspiration to begin creating comes. There is so much simplicity to the dashboard as with the builder itself; it contains the blocks panel where you will find every type of block, visual editor and settings menu.
Here’s a breakdown of the dashboard components in order of appearance:
Using premade website templates, you basically build your website by dragging any of the blocks mentioned above to the different pages of your website as you gradually build content. Also the contents of these blocks are customizable. There are also free extensions you can add to make your website livelier. Extensions like; Twitter feeds, Soundcloud, Google Analytics, Cookies Alert, Dropdown Menu and Facebook Comments.
