  i hear what you're saying Brian.

I have mentioned the multiple limited licence approach in a few posts, but why does it take a call to the sales dept to work out a deal.

I get several emails a week from Webassist with offers etc, why the cloak and dagger approach?

if the offer is 1 licence $99, each additional licence $50 or whatever, just advertise it as such, so people know what they are getting.

I am just starting out as a web developer, and of the sites i have created so far, the admin areas have been created by hand (or sometimes with DA).
The thing is, it takes longer, but because I coded it all, i know how it works.
For me, if PowerCMS is an option, I would use it for most projects.
What I don't want to do is invest time leaning a new tool if I only use it rarely.

The best solution for me would be the functionality of PowerCMS as part of an extension, or alternatively, a decent walkthrough of how to set up a CMS using WA extensions, written from a WA perspective.  


I understand your position on this, but with that said, I actually like that WebAssist is doing it this way. I think it more so protects the developers that want to use this for multiple use.

Think about it like this: an abusive ISP won't be able to just log on and buy muti licenses and hand them out for free to customers when customers buy some big hosting package. Thas is exactly what we do not want and by doing it this way, WebAssist now has control over who they sell these multipacks to.

Then to be able to buy a 5 pack of licenses for $150 is still well worth it. Part of the value here is that PowerCMS2 is a really significant upgrade and it's easy to customize. I am recreating my site right now with it and have never had such an easy solution that was easy to modify. I see where this solution really could be the driving force for revenue for me. Naturally, I am glad now that WebAssist will exercise a little more control than handing over licenses of the product to everyone.

Just some thoughts. Best regards,
