When you have defined the project's general settings, you can then use a number of advanced features to complete and perfect your website. You can add many important features such as an e-commerce shopping cart, a Blog, and a Members' Area.

The advanced features are:


You can create and manage a Blog, which is like an online diary in which you publish your news and visitors can comment on it.

RSS Feed

You can create and manage an RSS feed, which is a useful instrument for maintaining an up-to-date news channel.

Shopping Cart

You can create and manage an e-commerce shopping cart, defining product lists, shipping and payment methods, the layout of your order forms, etc.

Access Management

You can create profiles for the users who will have access to locked pages in the website, and you can organize them in groups. Locked pages, defined in Step 3  - Sitemap Creation, make up Members' Areas which need a login name to open them. According to each user profile, the credentials you specify determine which locked pages in the Members' Area that user has access to.

Data Management

Here you can indicate how data submission is to be handled in the various areas of the website where visitors can submit data: contact forms, the Blog, the Comments and Ratings Object, the online shopping cart.

Entry Page

You can include a Entry page, to introduce visitors to your website. The Entry page may have choices of other languages.

You can use the Entry page to automatically re-direct according to the language and resolution that is detected.

Advertising Message

You can set up and customize an advert to display only on the Home page or on all the website pages, in a specific position.

Privacy and Security

You can publish your policies for protecting your users' privacy and for protecting the website against abuse and spam.

Statistics, SEO and Code

You can add code to the pages to include, for example, a website hit statistics service. You can also indicate how the SiteMap is to be created and, if you have the Pro edition,  the contents of the robots.txt file.

Control Panel

Whether you are working with the Evo edition or the Pro edition, WebSite X5  automatically includes an online control panel in every website you create. This window, which only appears in the Pro edition, lets you add a logo and choose the design of the online Control Panel, which the administrator uses to manage various aspects of the published websites.

WebSite X5 Manager

You can also install the WebSite X5 Manager app so that you can use the features in the online Control Panel from a smartphone and tablet. With this app, you can enable push notifications so that you will be constantly updated on what is happening on your websites: you'll know when new comments and orders arrive, when stock in the online store is running low, when new users register, etc.
