Website Design Capability

Can Quarkxpress 2017(or 2016) be used to create and implement an entire website from scratch or just a publication?

Web development, export, went out with version 9 I think. You can develop HTML5 publications, but not really a web site.

Thanks. That's what I thought but their customer service is saying otherwise.

Hi Paul,

it depends what you call a website I guess. ;-)

HTML5 Publications is 100% HTML5 with several pages, links, menus, interactivity, videos, audio, zoomable etc. However it's a publication (and that's why we called it that way) to indicate it's linear story telling (which of course you can break by settings jumps etc). You can convert an existing Print layout into a HTML5 Publication or create a HTML5 Publication from scratch.
QuarkXPress 2016/2017 can create that, QX2017 even in a responsive manner.

A website is more like a spiderweb, where you have a start page and jump to other pages and don't really have a red thread. That's nothing that QuarkXPress 20xx creates.

Best to have a look yourself, the Test Drive (3 days or 30 days) is fully functional and the HTML5 is created locally, so you see the look and feel and see the code if desired: ... Drive.aspx

Feel there should be more chatting, more tips, more user interaction?

I was told by customer service that websites could be created in the QuarkXPress 2017 version. I was pleased to learn that information and started to read the Digital Publishing guide of QuarkXPress 2017. Next, I started checking for sample sites, etc., and came across this forum discussion. It sounds like website design is not an option, correct?

Otherwise, please direct me to some QuarkXPress 2017 HTML5 designed sites or pages.

thank you
