XSitePro v WordPress - Insights?

Hi all,
I'm just wondering which you think in your opinions is the better one to use, xsitepro or wordpress when making and maintaining or upgrading websites?
I have purchased xsitepro, and love it. It's so much easier to use and stuff, HOWEVER, I have been looking at outsourcing ALL my website work. To do this I have to let my workers have access to my websites and this can only be done through wordpress.
So just wondering what all you guys and girls out there use? Anyone who outsources websites got any ideas or how do they do it?
All help is much appreciated, cheers :)

Hi nothsa,

I think you just answered your own question : ) Both XSitePro and WordPress have their own pros and cons....It just depends on what you are more comfortable with and which program works for you....Wordpress does appear more functional, if you are looking at outsourcing most of your work....

I like both, for different reasons. I have been using Xsite Pro for my last couple of sites.it makes them easy to build. but, as you said, if you are outsourcing the site building, they have to have Xsite Pro in order to work on your site.

It all comes down to what you want. Also, Wordpress has some advantages such as RSS feeds, and plugins to help generate traffic, as well as the ability to self ping everytime you add content.

For me, I am doing a combination of both. I like xsite pro to build my static pages, but I am also putting a blog on almost every site that I own. Blogs are just too powerful, and I think anyone who is running a site should have at least one blog that they run.

It will be better to use Wordpress if you'll be outsourcing. You could also watch Mark's video on this issue: XsitePro vs Wordpress - What is the best software?

Just a side note. When selling sites that are in xsitepro you may find the buyers a bit bumbed about it. I sold two sites so far that were xsitepro and both new owners wished that it was not in xsitepro, but well, they still purchased it. :)

However, now that I have a mindset to build sites for the purpose of selling them, I am building exclusively with wordpress. I do really like xsitepro, but for selling, I think wordpress is a good selling point for the new owners.

I use Xsite-pro2 and love it but I'm a newbie. I think it's a great tool for people just like me, makes life easier at this stage. Probably will play with wordpress some more one day after I get some other things figured out.

as far as selling xsitepro sites, i believe there is a utility you can buy that converts xsitepro to wordpress (around $100). i have not used it, but you could offer the buyer the site in either format.


there is xsiteprotowordpress.com and also a product called artiseer.

What I like about wordpress is that it's free and I get to publish my site instantly. No more uploading via ftp which can take a while if you have many websites files.

I was concerned about backups when I first started using wordpress but I have learned my way around and everything is a breeze now. I can have a wordpress site up and running in as little as five minutes. Content creation not included, of course :)

What I am looking to do next is design my own wordpress themes, without using artisteer or anything similar, so that I can customize to my heart's content.
