Read an in-depth analysis in our professional review for BlueVoda
BlueVoda is a nifty tool that you can use to create and design websites by using the drag and drop technique. It's useful even if you have little or no experience at all.
Upon initiating the website builder, you have three choices: start a new project, open an existing one, or watch video tutorials. Unfortunately, video tutorials were not available in our case, and we couldn't find any predefined templates to look into and play with.
The user interface may seem overwhelming at first for beginners, but take your time and get to know the product.
You can add HTML, scripts, inline frames, layers, ActiveX, Java, Flash, Windows Media, QuickTime, RealPlayer, YouTube, or other types of objects.
Double clicking each one of them allows you to edit it. For example, you can write a custom HTML code (or import a ready-made text file), add a YouTube link of your preferred size (and enable the display of related videos), and so on.
From the design perspective, you can insert and customize banners, rollover images, ad banner rotator images, galleries, guest books, RSS feeds, menu bars, and others.
In addition, BlueVoda comes with a free FTP client called Blue FTP. It basically allows you to connect only to VodaHost's servers (too bad it's this limited), and publish your work.
The program uses little CPU and memory resources. Besides the video tutorials and templates, we couldn't access the community form, customer support, and control panel, for some reason.
All in all, if you don't plan on learning a programming or scripting language that is necessary for building a website, then BlueVoda can get you what you need.
