SiteBuilder Elite Manual

Detailed info about SiteBuilder Elite’s options

SiteBuilder Elite


SiteBuilder Elite is a website authoring tool designed with affiliate and internet marketers in mind.

The software has nothing to do with WordPress or any other Content Management System (CMS) and plugins for those platforms will not work with the software.

Instead, SiteBuilder Elite builds traditional, static websites rather  than blogs. There are several advantages to taking this approach:

  • traditional sites don't need to be kept constantly alive with new content as blogs do (though you can do this with SiteBuilder Elite if you want);
  • all the functionality is built into the software whereas you'd have to buy a variety of plugins to use with a CMS to achieve the same thing;
  • the overheads involved are less (smaller amount of disk space used, no need for a database) and there's less to go wrong (plugins frequently encounter problems on WordPress for example because they conflict with new versions of other plugins or a new version of WordPress causes problems for existing plugins);
  • and finally because you can build a site much faster with SiteBuilder Elite.


How To Use This Manual

The manual is broken down into sections (categories). In each section are a number of pages providing more information on topics on that section.

Whenever you select a category, the links at the top of the menu will change - these are the pages that are specific to that category.
