Features

What follows are some of the outstanding things Simbla offers.

Extreme User-Friendliness

Using Simbla is an exceptionally straightforward affair. There’s an abundance of inline help information and tips that ensure you’re never lost at any point in the process of creating your website.

The website builder even has a step-by-step walkthrough for creating websites, and all you have to do is follow along until you complete the essential parts of your site.

Designing your web pages is simple: You just drag content blocks — which are widgets of content such as web forms, image galleries, navigation menus, and so forth — to a section of the page you’re currently working on.

You can customize your content blocks just by clicking on an item on the page and then clicking "Edit". This will open a window for customizing the item. Like I promised, no programming involved.
