If you do upgrade, it will be the newest version, called Site Designer, and it goes by the name 'SD3' or something like that. Be aware that it is somewhat different. One thing that might be confusing is, it used the same file extension, .rsd as the earlier versions. So my advice is:

1. before you install SD3, make a backup copy of your project and rename it, and store it, so that you don't by mistake open it in SD3. If you want to open it with RSD 1.5, you'll have to right-click and select RSD 1.5.
2. When you open the project in SD3 for the first time, you will get a message about converting it to either Foundation or Bootstrap, because the CC in-house 'Coffeegrinder' framework is not supported. I advise you to go for Foundation, since there are more people in this forum using it, so if help is needed, there will always be someone here who will be able to assist you. Once you have converted your project, you won't be able to open in in RSD 1.5 any more, so hence the backup copy.

Thanks Inger!

It's offering to upgrade from 1.5 to "V3" for a very tempting price. Is that the SD3 of which you speak?

If they still do a free trial period, I would be tempted to give the free trial; a try out first, because its a very different approach to doing things.

Yes, V3 and SD3 are one and the same. And what Wayan is saying about trying it is a good idea.

Thanks Wayan. I'm barely getting around in 1.5, so am not sure if it would make a huge difference. :-)

Well believe me if you are barely getting around in V1.5 the difference will be vast, but then as you say it may be so different it makes no difference if that makes sense, but I still would give the free trial a go first (if it's still available as a free trial) and use the 14 days trial to get to know your way around, before even attempting to bring in the v1.5 project

I just made a mess of things yesterday, by trying to implement some SEO suggestions from another forum. ( I posted here, asking, but no one responded. )

But the good news is that I experimented intensively with RSD 1.5 today and learned a LOT, and did a much cleaner and SEO friendly layout. ( wasn't easy, as clueless as I've been about this software. ) :P

So now it looks ok on my desktop, but not so good ( responsive stinks ) on my phone. I'm THINKING that it as something to do with the break points? ( Don't know much about using them yet. ), OR I messed up the code itself?

Melissa, is it your intention to reduce the size of the main image like what I see on my laptop and iphone?

I do hope you have a backup of your original file. If I were you, I would keep that on the server for the public to see, and rather make a test folder on the server for your experiments.

Yes Inger. It was right at the top of the page and the SEO people told me that it was important to have other things at the top. So I reduced it and put the page title above it.

But they also tell me that I suck at doing this and need to have someone redesign the whole site using Wordpress, for digital marketing and SEO optimization.

I do hope you have a backup of your original file.


That is the original file - I just reduced the size for what I wanted to do on the page.

I just need to get a decent site up and running, right now, with improved SEO. The next goal is to affordably get it redesigned in Wordpress, by someone who understands digital marketing and can optimize it for SEO. This is crucial ro our survival.
