DoveSoft UK

This site has been designed using WordPress in response to several queries from Seniors using our main business site. The aim is to provide introductory advice on using the Web, and contains several useful links including, for example, to a free training course. Visit the site by clicking the following link for DoveSoft UK.

DoveSoft RWD

Our main business site created using Bootstrap which is the most popular HTML, CSS, and JavaScript framework for developing responsive, mobile first projects on the web. It is a single page site designed to demonstrate responsive web design (RWD) and can be viewed effectively on all devices. Click this link here and resize your browser window to see what we mean.

Xara Demonstration

For the hobbyist and casual developer, DoveSoft recommend Xara Web Designer 365. This product supercedes the discontinued Serif Web Plus as our favourite tool for the hobbyist sector and our demonstration site  can be viewed effectively again on all devices. Xara uses adaptive web design techniques.

Using Joomla

Joomla is a popular alternative to WordPress as both are content management systems.  A content management system (CMS) is a front-end user interface that allows a user, even with limited expertise, to add, modify and remove content from a Web site without the intervention of a webmaster.

90 Second WebSite Builder

A recommended alternative to Xara Web Designer 365 is Website Builder 14 by 90 Second WebSite Builder. This software also uses adaptive design but offers more development functionality than Xara Web Designer 365. View a typical Dovesoft enhanced demonstration site.

DoveSoft Desktop Site

Again, this site uses a fixed width layout and is ideal for those not requiring responsive web layouts. It was written using Serif WebPlus X8.
