Hi people! I'm baaack...
I'm a senior, running a small part time home based business, and wanted the responsive thing, for mobile phones to see my page at http://DenverProcessServers.net
So I had one of your nice people do my site with RSD 1 when it first came out, and got a free copy which I'm still using. ( As usual, such great deals here! )
So now I've been getting all kinds of email offers for Site Designer V3.
I still have RSD 1, and don't even know how to use that very well, being I spend most of my time being swamped with business for what I know how to do best, and have never really studied web design.
So what's the difference between these things?
Well there is a world of difference to be honest, even though SDv3 has something called Vanilla, which can work from any position (desktop down or mobile first, or indeed anywhere in between for that matter) the process needed to either convert RSD v1 to the new SDv3 then get it onto the new CSS Grid system is somewhat complicated, (or should we say not easy), especially if one doesn't really understand or is familiar with RSDv1 or even RSD v2.5 for that matter.
Sites made using earlier versions(RSDv1 up to RSDv2.5) will still be around & working for years if not decades to come.
to quote something you mention
If the time HAS come and you wish to try to update the site yourself, then by all means, take the leap of faith, and get as much help from the people on this forum as you need.
Good luck with whatever you decide
