Performance

I used Editor X via 3 separate WiFi networks and had no issues with overall performance. The design functions updated quickly with little to no lag time. Adding, editing, changing, and saving components was near instantaneous.

Their Collaboration function allows for multiple users to work on the same project and includes an on-screen instant messenger. Any changes made by collaborators were reflected within one second on either end.

Uniqueness

The development team at Editor X conducted extensive competitor analysis with the goal of making a product that all designers can relate to. The platform stands out for allowing complex web designs for any device without using code.

Ease of Use

Setup

Initial sign-up and setup is easy — just choose a blank slate or a designer template, then adjust everything to your liking. There are quite a few editing options, it might take some time to get familiar with them.

For those lacking programming experience, the Editor X interface can seem a little intimidating at first. This is due to it being so feature-heavy, which is a good thing. The builder is very intuitive and is excellent for those wanting a completely customizable website-building experience.

Templates & Themes

Editor X offers 40+ templates to choose from and 8 wireframes.

Drag & Drop Editor

The drag & drop editor is responsive with a fairly easy interface. It takes a little getting used to, but it’s very efficient when you get the hang of it.

Editing Code

As you can see in the video and as I’ve explained, EditorX has a “Dev Mode” option which allows you to take control of customizing and editing your code if you have the skills and experience to do so. Although this is not needed for basic use of the software, EditorX makes this an option for those who wish to Edit the code and they do it in a seamless and intuitive way.

Customer Support

Editor X’s customer support team is available 24/7 through a Help Center and a chatbot they call WixBot. To get in touch by phone, we first needed to describe our request to a chatbot. Wix and Editor X share a customer support team, which is reassuring.

They also have a learning resource named Academy X, Design Classes with industry leaders, Webinars, and an Online Community where you can connect with other users through a forum.

Chatbot

90% of inquiries are easily handled by their comprehensive chatbot. You can also request a callback or open a ticket.

Phone Support

After requesting a callback via chatbot, I received a call in 18 minutes. The representative was helpful and patient.

Community

Community X is a forum where users can connect with other creators, share ideas, give feedback and get the latest product updates. The community has over 100k members, is typically active within an 8-hour time frame, and has 6 general categories. The community comprises professionals and beginners alike.

Design Features

It also offers true fluid-responsive web design. There is one version of the website that adapts itself to every screen size as opposed to the traditional adaptive design approach that most builders use. 

It has a full suite of business solutions, a content management system, Image galleries & editing, marketing & SEO integrations, and analytics & reports.

While Editor X does have built-in blogging, stores, and event management already set up, you can use the Content Manager features to build a completely custom site.

Verdict

Editor X is feature-heavy with a wide range of customization options. It is aimed at web designers and people who value the visual aesthetics of a website. It has affordable pricing tiers to suit the needs of entrepreneurs at all stages of business. It also allows you to build amazing-looking websites, but if you’re not at least a semi-professional builder, it may prove too complicated to use.
