I would like to hark back to the original post and quote from office guy to reiterate the request for a tutorial in how all of your products integrate with each other from initial concept through to finished website. The individual extensions work great when I know what I am doing with them, but just to highlight the point being made, I bought your SuperSuite some years back, and although I looked at some extentions straight away, I didn't actually understand their place in the process of building a website. Because of this, I didn't actually use any of the products for something like eight months.
The first tool I did use was site assist; it didn't fit into my workflow and couldn't see how it would, so I ended up binning what had been produced. The next tool I used was data assist... all of a sudden I found the strength of a tool you make. I couldn't do without it now, but it took me eight months to realise it! Universal email is another tool I took a while to figure out how to implement. The same with iRite.
Validation tool kit... tried it, but just don't get it and how it works with pages I have created, so it is redundant along with site assist. I could go on, but you get the point.
What would be good is to see how you guys would take something along the lines of PowerStore and start from scratch with it and then construct it using your tools. The individual tutorials are great if you know what you're doing with each tool, but if like me you don't understand where and when to implement tools, they aren't in my case going to get used, and in other cases they aren't going to get purchased.
You could create an overview video tutorial of the process showing where each tool is used and why (start with tool A, then use tool B, then use tool C and so on). If the user needs deeper clarification of any tool, they then visit the already existing videos to gain a deeper understanding of how to implement it.
For example; double opt in email verification... I had a telephone conversation with one of your tech guys and he said use Universal Email, Data Assist and Security Assist. I am still trying to figure out how to do it... but that's a question I will post in another thread.
I'm not a novice, but I am no expert either. I have built some huge sites with thousands of visitors, but not by using your tools. The silly thing is, you have made development a lot easier, but in some instances, it's not clear how to use your tool, and so it doesn't get used or even purchased. I have all of these wonderful tools, but I just don't use half of them because I don't understand where and when to use them. You might understand them because you recognised a need for them to be built.
Anyway, here's hoping...
