WebSite X5 Evo and Pro
Objects are the contents you can use to set up your web pages. WebSite X5 offers a complete set of included Objects, as well as a list of Optional Objects which you can choose to install and which is constantly updated with new features, so you can create even more complete and professional-looking pages.
Included vs. Optional Objects
Included in the software, you will find all the Objects you need to create complete web pages:
A part from these, you can also install and use the Optional Objects, which are constantly released. Thanks to the Optional Objects you can further enrich your pages with new galleries, animated contents, social buttons and other special functions.
Where to find Optional Objects
There are two ways of finding out which are the available and most suitable Optional Objects for your website:
- Visit the Marketplace
Go on the Marketplace and access the Objects section. Here you can find all the Optional Objects organized in different categories. You can find a short description and an example page for each Object. Click on the button to proceed with the installation or the purchase.
- Use the Object Management window
While you're working with WebSite X5, go to Step 2 - Template > Template Content or to Step 4 - Page Creation and select the Add Object button. Access the Object Management window, where you can find an ordered list of the Optional Objects too: you can read a short description of the Object by selecting it. Use the Preview button to access the Marketplace preview page. Click on Install to proceed to the possible purchase and installation.
Optional Objects: Free vs. Paid
Optional Objects can be available both for free and upon payment. The former just need to be installed, while the latter have to be purchased with Credits first.
Credits are money you can use to buy on the WebSite X5 Marketplace: you need them to get Optional Objects and Templates directly within the software. You can find more details about Credits on the dedicated Marketplace page.
How to install an Optional Object
The procedure to install an Optional Object is the same, regardless if you get it from the Marketplace or directly within the software. In both cases, once you choose the Optional Object, you need to:
- click on the corresponding button;
- log in using the same details you used to register your WebSite X5 license.
- if the Object is available for free, it is simply installed;
- if the Optional Object is available upon payment, a check on the Credits availability is carried out: the necessary Credits are then used for the purchase and the Object is installed.
All the Optional Objects you install will be listed on Step 2 - Template > Template Content and on Step 4 - Page Creation together with the included ones, and you can use them to set up your headerpages.
How to uninstall an Optional Object
You can manage an installed Optional Object on the Object Management window
- On Step 4- Page Creation select the Add Object button.
- Select the desired Optional Object.
- If an update is available, select the Update button.
- If you don't need it anymore, select the Uninstall button instead.
Compatibility with WebSite X5 versions/editions
Optional Objects can be used in all WebSite X5 editions: Evo, Pro and Go
For each Optional Object, you can see the compatibility with the software versions (for example: 11, 12, 13) it can be used with.
#tip - A check on your license is carried out, so you don't risk purchasing and/or installing an Object you already own or which is not compatible with your WebSite X5 version.
Integration with third-party services
Some Optional Objects are developed in order to allow the integration between WebSite X5 and third-party services.
In such cases, the Optional Object is free, while the third-party service might require the payment of a fee. You always have a trial period or version to evaluate the service offered, so you can then choose the best plan or version for you.
You can get in touch with the producing company for any technical or commercial information about third-party services.
