Hi Alan,
This is just my opinion, but if you are new to this then artiseer is best.
Thesis has a steep learning curve... I know, because I tried...lol

Artiseer will allow you to do your own theme.
You may even want to go with a more already done theme like wpremix or flexibility as they are more drag'n'drop

Start out on the right foot, go with Thesis. They now have a movie on how to construct a site. It's easy. Paul

Hi Reseller,
That is ok for people who know CSS but from my experience with Thesis..
I had a hell of a time trying to customize my site exactly how I wanted it.
Sure I could pay someone to do it for me.. but then that defeats the purpose of buying it yourself.
Hey, It's a great platform but definitely not for newbies in my opinion.
The video might be ok, but can you learn how to customize it the way you want?

Regards

Hi,
I think both are good but xsitepro is great for SEO.
Remeber though they are both different programs.
One is based on wordpress, the other is a static webpage.
