Thank you for your detailed answer. I would like only to reply on:
“The learning curve in 7 isn’t different to all other versions. The basics had been ignored by a mass of users since version 4 (too complicated, sucks, is there no action available?, is this code - uahh ugly!!).”
I know we had this discussion sometimes before. I don’t agree.
The „basic“ you say is the box model construction, which has been one way to design in FW besides others. (You follow this way many years already, so it easy to say the learning curves are not different) Other constructions have/had their proper value too, so many others followed these methods, learned it, used it for years with good reasons.
The „basic“ as you say is what Softpress promoted for years. „You see what you get“, no coding, just actions, easy to set up even for non-coder.
I find it strange to say, that people who did like to do exactly this what Softpress intensely promised - and had chosen their application on this account - to accuse of ignorance.
It is clear that FW offers advanced or alternative techniques too, but would I know in the first place?
Actions are very important additions for many of us; I know that you are using hardly none. It’s natural to ask for it. (Lucky us to have such a big pool of action writers.) And yes, I still miss a lot of actions that are ready for FW7.
But of course we have to face the change in usage of websites in many different end devices. Sure we have to be open for new techniques.
But the learning curve to FW7 is steep for many of us. So it was to me and still sometimes is - and I started with FW3. And I don`t consider me as ignorant. Do you?
