Rant about the whole mess

Since WebAssist makes it hard to talk to them I feel compelled to air my complaints here.

I don't understand why this suite of tools is so dysfunctional. I have used the old InterAKT suite for many years until Adobe decided to squash it like a bug and although it was kind of clunky it worked well and did things that WebAssist can't even seem to get right. With no competition now, I expected WebAssist to step up and give us the tools we need THAT WORK. Instead we got a convoluted mess that makes it difficult to even know if you have the right version of this or if that extension was combined with that one... you know what I mean. Worse yet, hardly anything required to do real CMS work required painful fixes, workarounds, and massaging of code to make it do what it is supposed to.

The engineering logic behind doing simple things like adding a datepicker to a date field or uploading a file (common needs of a decent CMS) is beyond comprehension. For example - if you want to use their "datepicker" wizard, you must use the terrible Form Builder wizard. It is ridiculous and unusable.

And finally - the evolution of the webassist suite is so slow they are completely behind the development curve now. Has anyone at WebAssist heard of HTML5?

Thanks for listening.
