After much frustration with the publishing side of Adobe Muse I’m thinking about switching entirely to using WordPress to build simple sites for my clients. The support from Adobe has been a hair-tearing time, waiting for their experts to come back to me with answers to questions takes far too long when you need to find an answer immediately. I’m bored with it and disappointed that Adobe haven’t thought about the post publishing side of things, considering Muse was set up to cater for those of us who do not want to worry about the nitty-gritty of coding etc.
When I first discovered Muse I thought all my dreams had come true, a web design package that allows me to be a designer not a techie. I wouldn’t have to worry about what goes on in the background, I could just concentrate on making my sites look good and work the way I want them to work. But when it comes to publishing it all reverts back to needing to be a whizz at all the background stuff. I simply don’t understand and I want answers quick. Yes I am a little impatient when things don’t work like they should.
I love the sites I’ve created with Muse and my clients have been really happy with them too, but the niggling little things that spoil the experience are pushing me away. Help me Adobe! If you’re going to create a package for us designers who don’t want to think about the coding side of life, give us the whole package.
