A few of you have been asking about CloudPress, so I went ahead and purchased the AppSumo deal to check it out. Why not, it’s only $50 and for a lifetime access. At first glance, the app looks amazing. It claims you can “Create Unique Responsive WordPress Sites Without Coding.” For those with zero coding skills, this sounds like a dream come true. Essentially, CloudPress allows you to create a WordPress “off-site.” So instead of logging into your WordPress dashboard to edit your site, you would log into the CloudPress Platform. This allows you to create and edit without messing with your live site. Then it’s a matter of syncing it over once you’re all done. Pretty neat.
Their customizer, the CloudPress Designer App, is a drag and drop style builder, allowing you to create a site “live.” This is really helpful to those who love Weebly and are intimidated by WordPress or who dreaded coding. They also have basic layouts to get you started!
It seems like they’ve been around for a while, but only have gained popularity recently (probably thanks to AppSumo). Naturally it’s not a perfect system since there’s no such thing… Here are few things I have noticed (possible cons):
You’re better off with X Theme. CloudPress starts at 9.99 a month (!!) while X is a one time fee. X Theme’s Cornerstone is the exact same idea as CloudPress in terms of a drag and drop builder, but you get TONS more options and it’s more user friendly. My 2 cents!!! Hope it’s helpful
