    I'm helping a friend revamp her old website originally built in FrontPage. I need something that can create modern websites so her new website can pass the Google Mobile Test (https://search.google.com/search-console/mobile-friendly). The painful thing is that she wants a drag and drop designer that works for BOTH PC and Mac. Suggestions, anyone?

    Have you visited 9to5mac? The continuity of their page scroll is a commendable feature.

    However:
    • Wix.com
    • format.com
    • Yola.com
    These, would be the basic recommendation.

    I would prefer a drag and drop designer. I found the Coffeecup Responsive Site Designer, it's available for both Windows and Mac...but it's so expensive. :mad:

    You can also try "Pinegrow web designer" and "Bootstrap Studio" : both allow you to drag and drop responsive websites using the bootstrap framework. You'll still need to know html and how the bootstrap components all fit together though. I bought both at a sale end of 2016 for about 30 or 40 dollars each.

    There's a free Elementor plugin for Wordpress that adds drag and drop style design.

    Thanks all. I ended up installing Virtualbox on the PC, so my friend can edit her sites using a Mac app, she didn't want to pay for both a Windows and a Mac version. While evaluating different apps, I liked Coffeecup Responsive Site Designer the most, my friend liked a Mac web design app called Wolf. Both are very good drag and drop tools, we are pretty proud of our new site designs. :p
