Frequently Asked Questions
Will you install this on any server?
Unfortunately this software is currently only available for domains hosted by us.
Do you intend making this available to the public in the future?
Possibly, but we would first need to be certain that we had tested it in almost every possible environment so that we can safely vouch for it. The signup and licensing costs would probably be higher than what we charge our clients.
Can I get the source code?
Can I rebrand or customise the look of the editor?
Unfortunately as an end user you can't. The software is encrypted to prevent this.
For our hosting resellers we can remove the links to Web Inn and you can rename the programme. The powered by and copyright notices cannot be removed.
Does the software have limitations?
Because any software programme can only aim at being intuitive rather than intelligent, there are limitations. These are:
Can not be used on a dynamic website, like php or asp (content is normally not on-page)
Can not be used on a flash website (only flash can edit flash)
Can not be used on a Microsoft Publisher site (only publisher can edit publisher)
Can I create new pages with this software?
This is purely a page editor and not page creation software.
The software does however work well in conjunction with our account control panel for sites that have fairly straight-forward, standard layouts. Using your control panel you can create and configure a new page in minutes, then edit it accordingly in the editor. We provide a tutorial to assist you with this.
However, you will normally not be able to add links to these pages on your main menu (depends on how your menu was created). New pages would generally only be able to link from within other editable pages.
My site has a lot of fancy stuff. Will the editor work on it?
It really depends on two things:
Do you want to be changing the fancy stuff as well as the contents?
What exactly is the fancy stuff?
The editor works well for:
straight text content;
inserting, deleting or replacing images (including animated images or rotating banners);
inserting, deleting or replacing links and documents (eg. pdf docs);
deleting or replacing flash components.
If you are not sure about whether the editor will do what you need it to on your site, send us an enquiry with a link to your existing site and the details of where you'd like to use the editor and we'll assess it for you at no cost and with no obligation. - Please use the enquiry link at the bottom of the page.
How do I sign up?
Existing hosting clients simply use the online order process and purchase this as an add-on to your existing account, or email us with a manual order.
New clients, please use our online facility to order your hosting account and simply select the Self-Edit hosting option, which will automatically add this license to your order.
How long does installation take?
We will get the software set up as fast as possible, but timing is determined to a large extent by the number of requests that we receive at any given time and the complexity of your website. Generally, between 24 hours and 5 working days.
