Absolutely brilliant suite of software.
If your a designer with bright ideas but no coding experience this is for you.
It's helped me produce sites I would never had been able to do normally.

The support forum, users and web assist staff, is brilliant. I've never had an issue that wasn't fixed quickly.

Highly recommended

Overall, the Webassist extensions are a great value. Although I've run into an occasional bug, they are rare and I've always received prompt support through their free forums where users often get generous "how-to" help that goes beyond basic support.

I also believe the the previous review is incorrect in their statement about domain licensing. I've never encountered a per-domain licensing fee for any extension and, in fact, Webassist promotes "build unlimited sites with one license." (see:

I've found these extensions (Databridge, especially) to be great time savers and I would recommend them.

I have dump over $1000.00 in webassist add ons. from the beggining it being
a pain in the A$$. Their program have a truck load of bugs and to get aswer you have to pay or wait around for answer in the forum.
Now web assist start charging per domain use licensing. for example to use their
not so great CMS you have to drop $100 per domain. auchh

I've been developing PHP websites with with Dreamweaver creating administrator back-ends for a twelve years. I have purchased every suite made by Webassist in 2012 spending over $1200.00. I have spent hundreds of hours debugging their software. Webassist expects the consumer to be beta testers, and they want you to buy upgrades or pay for support. They will arrogantly protest they have thoroughly tested their products, but I have found critical flaws in every release. Don't waste your time or money. You will definitely regret this purchase!

I have been using WebAssist products for quite awhile. I've purchased many of their products, both as suites and as individual extensions. To a coder, Dreamweaver has always been inelegant, and it's not the easiest application to use for a non-coder. I'm definitely a "non-coder", though I understand how, where, and why to make many of my design changes or implementations without assistance. Many times I have gotten in over my (designer) head, but have always been able to figure out the rather sophisticated solutions produced by Dreamweaver and the WebAssist extensions.

To someone like me, WebAssist products are as good as they get. And for most of my clients, the solutions offered by WebAssist perform quite well. They're not the cheapest, but they are thorough, well documented and commented, and their online support forums are far better than the average company. Several times other coders have answered questions before the WebAssist tech did. I've never - not one time - had a question I posted go unanswered by either their technician(s) or the community. Often people ask questions that go far beyond the functionality or purpose of the plug-in, and the techs have gone beyond what they reasonably ought to in the depth of their answers. (For example, asking hosting specific settings on their own website, which needed to be answered by the hosting company instead of the WebAssist tech.)

I have bought products by WebAssist and then never used them, kind of like going to Home Depot and buying decorating "stuff" or neat tools "just in case", and then ended up upgrading when I actually needed to employ the extension, but that's my own fault - and in one case WebAssist had pity on me and upgraded it as a courtesy.

Good products cost money to develop and build upon. WebAssist shouldn't have to apologize for their premium prices on extensions because, simply put, the extensions work well and, used properly, create a healthy revenue stream for the user.

Specifically, I just REALLLLLY like the Forms Builder. That feature alone paid for the cost of the entire suite the first time I used it.
