Adobe discontinues GoLive

Adobe on Monday announced that its venerable visual Web site creation tool GoLive has been discontinued. The company has ceased development and sales of GoLive effective Monday, April 28, 2008.

No surprise here. One down, how many to go? :wink:

Let the people there know that Freeway is a great tool for those who don’t want to learn code.

I find this interesting, because it seems that Adobe have conceded to
the DW mind-set. I know that GoLive was very similar to DW under the
hood, but it was marketed to capital-D designers in a manner very
similar to Freeway, as opposed to DW, which has always been geek-
proud. It’s a voice for the design-centric approach to the Web going
out, and while I’m not fond of GoLive, it strikes me as a sign that
we will need to fight a little harder for our point of view.

Yes, I’m seeing that already in the replies to the article. A lot of design-oriented web developers seem to be lamenting this loss. OTOH, this can be an opportunity for Softpress to pick up some of these users. Perhaps they should consider a cross-grade offer for GoLive users if they have not already.

Heh. Read the posts. My “Don’t worry about code!” comment seems to have stirred some people up. :smiley:

[Laughing] Way to stir up the stink, Joe!

My favorite excerpt so far from ‘tallscot’ -“Personally, I find a good designer with a good eye who is dependable a lot harder to find than someone who can code a registration Web page for me. Just put up a Craigslist ad for that and you’ll get several dozen responses in the first day.”

He’s right. You can make allowances for a lot of things but if you’re not dependable then all bets are off. And there are a lot of undependable people out there.

Excellent posts, Joe!

I also posted on that Macworld thread, but I thought I’d blast the news out to this list as well…

For the next several weeks, owners of GoLive 8 or 9 can upgrade to Freeway Pro at a 30% discount. Contact our sales department at sales [at] softpress.com for more info and to supply proof of ownership.

I know most of you are Freeway users, but please feel free to pass this on to your GoLive-loving friends!

Started with Adobe page mill and rode that until changing to OX -X made be get another computer. I looked at Golive and I looked at the price and said no thanks at the time. I looked at Freeway express which I can’t remember what I paid for it but cheaper that what Golive was at the time. I can see that I want to upgrade to FW Pro.

Anyone can build a web page now and fast I might add using FW Video Tutorials which are free.

and Atomic learning has a Freeway tutorials but it will cost you a little buckaroo plus I’m not sure what version it would be.

I found nothing at http://www.vtc.com or http://www.lynda.com/

Bottom line is I wanted to learn fast and Freeway did the job for me.
Thanks Sofpress!

On the other hand, this is also a major marketing opportunity.

Not that GoLive’s demise wasn’t on the cards right from the moment
Adobe’s bid for Macromedia was announced.

If not from the moment GoLive CyberStudio was bought by Adobe. :slight_smile:
