Introducing SnapPages 3
There are more improvements and new features in this update than we can list in a single blog post, but I'll touch on some highlights below:
Drag and Drop Editor
All New Themes
What about existing SnapPages accounts?
This was a very hard decision to make, but in the end, we know it was the right thing to do to as we move forward. Trying to make older websites compatible with the new system would have greatly limited what we could do with 3.0. If want to take advantage of the features of 3.0 you will need to setup a new 3.0 account and migrate your content over.
We know you will have more questions about this, so free to contact us and we'll be happy to walk through them with you.
SnapPages 3 looks great, but more info for those of us who are already using SnapPages would be nice. I am fine with rebuilding on the new platform, but does that mean that I have to purchase a second account?
I just want to add to the above that I run several sites on SnapPages - two of the sites are for nonprofits. The sites are grandfathered in to the old pricing or have lifetime subscriptions. If I want to rebuild the sites, will I lose the grandfathered/lifetime pricing?
While you will need to set up a new account in SnapPages 3, you will not need to pay for 2 separate accounts. Once you've transitioned your site over to the new version, please let us know and we'll be happy to help you cancel your old account so you're not paying for both the old account and the new one.
Got it - but If I build new SnapPages 3 sites to replace my current SnapPages 2 sites, will the pricing of the old accounts transfer to the new accounts? I am running several sites that are under a lifetime membership, so they are already paid for, and a couple of other sites that are are at the pricing SnapPages offered before the last price increase - they are grandfathered under that pricing.
I think I have emailed you but I have lots of blog post and it would be time consuming to transfer every single one by text and photos.
Thanks for the feedback! We're hoping to come up with a solution specifically for blogs as this is really the most time consuming part of the process. We'll post something if we have any updates on this.
Congratulation Steve and Ryan on V.3. My concerns are above. I have YEARS of version 2 blogs from various clients (BCab) that I can't possibly re-key over to v3. But I want to do this. Also what is the status of the video player on v3? Is it included? All my blogs incorporate vidz into the content.
Congratulations guys, well I too have lifetime membership with (version 2) V2, however I am happy to rebuild from scratch so can you please migrate my account to V3 or is there any upgrade cost associated with the existing lifetime membership accounts? , thank you
I have a lifetime subscription currently for V2 does this mean I will have to pay for v3 or will my subscription carry over?
I have the same question as many of the above - if I transition to the new version, will our price increase or are we grandfathered in?
Is there a offer for lifetime membership V2 users?
I was informed that the V2 subscriptions will NOT carry over. You will need to buy a new subscription. Allegedly a new "lifetime" offer will be available at some point for V3, but I'm going to go ahead and guess that this V3 "lifetime" subscription won't be any more future-proof than the current V2 one (i.e. it's for the "lifetime" of the current platform version, but not for any future upgrades.) That's pretty weasel-like, so personally I'm bailing and will use a new host for all my future sites, particularly since I'd have to rebuild my current site anyway for v3. There's no incentive for current lifetime customers to stay -- drag-n-drop site builders are a dime a dozen.
