Hi Everyone,

XSitePro 2.5 is ready!

It's a free upgrade for all existing version 2 users. You'll find a link to download it below.

Before you rush off I'd like to say a massive thank you to each and every beta tester of 2.5, and all of our users for the amazing feedback and support we've received over the years. You guys rock! :)

The main objective for version 2.5 was to update the templates and other graphical stuff. When you look through the 200 new templates on offer I'm sure you'll agree our designers (thanks Rob and Pawel) have done a great job of bringing things right up-to-date.

In addition to the new templates we've also been busy adding some cool new features. I've copied a list of these below, along with a link to some videos which showcase the new features.

Meanwhile, here's your download link for XSitePro Version 2.5:


All the best


P.S. Our beta testers have been giving XSP 2.5 a thorough test over the last couple of months, but with so many different operating systems, browsers, hosting companies etc, it is difficult to cover all possibilities, so if you do find any glitches, large or small, just let us know via support and we will get straight onto them.

201. Having a sub page list (bulleted or numbered) displaying horizontally when you have an image gallery widget above it has been fixed.

202. Paypal success and failure pages not returning full path has been fixed

203. If you had siloing turned on, with alphabetical sitemaps enabled and you had sub pages which contained external links the application crashed at preview / publish - this has been fixed.

205. The Site Search box and results page used to disappear if you changed template from a site that didn't have one to a template that does.

206. The Site Search used to create a results page without any page layout if you were also creating the mobile site.

208. Siloing over multiple levels was using the \ character instead of the / between folder names which was causing problems for Firefox.

225. The issue of scripts and comments were being corrupted and becoming yellow placeholders has been fixed.

226. The Multi Page Creation Wizard was causing errors when it was loaded.

228. Correctly picks up on image filenames that contain an & character.

229. Various changes to try and resolve the javascript exceptions in the designer.

Been giving 2.5 a whirl for the last couple of hours and have to say I absolutely love it. Great work on the templates and the new features are really useful. The tag clouds features is too cool for words. I thought you could only do that kind of thing on a database type site so you've worked wonders getting it into Xsitepro :D

Great work guys and gals!

Oh and I forgot to thank you for the videos. That was very considerate and they really helped me understand the new features in record time.

Quick question. Do I still have access to all my old templates?

Hi julie

I installed and all of the v2 templates work just the same, not found a problem yet - touch wood

Have to agree with you too, it is a major update and I like what I see so far, there are a couple of things I would still like to see, as Brett mentioned above, leaving custom code the way we wish to display it is a biggy for me. hint hint guys.....

Definitely agree!

Christmas holidays and New Year on the same day .... :):)

The first thing I wanted to try was to try the new "search" tool and I only get this message: http://www.screencast.com/users/takealo ... 4c25e4fe6e

Any idea about why this message?

The installation went perfectly, even running a restart but I get the same message.

Yes definitely a huge thank you to the beta testers!!!

With software as full of features as XSitePro is it is a big challenge testing to make sure that everything is working fine. In the past we've struggled trying to do most of it in-house, but for 2.5 we had lots of kind offers from users who were happy to put the new version through its paces.

It is a long and drawn out process creating large software packages and the beta testers did an amazing job of putting each minor new beta version (of which there were quite a few) through some rigorous testing.

Thanks again guys and gals. We couldn't have done it without you :D

Hi Bobby,

It looks like you tried doing something that none of our beta testing had tried which was to do absolutely nothing but create a blank site and open the site search. The error was because it was trying to copy the search box images into a folder that doesn't exist yet (because you have not previewed your site and it has no other images)

We will get this fixed (it only needs a single line of code) and ready for an update soon.

In the meantime, you should find that if you add an image anywhere on your site and hit the preview button, you will be able to use the site search feature.

Thanks for bringing it to our attention,

Fantastic. Thanks a lot!

I look forward two the update.

Will I find this under the "check for updates or will we receive a new download link?

Again, thanks a lot for a great software and a great update!

Thanks for the new version. I can't believe it is free. I feel like Christmas has come early.

I just set up a new site and used the domain and hosting feature to get it all set up. Harry Potter couldn't have designed that wizard any better. I have never seen anything that makes building a site, registering a domain name, setting up hosting and publishing the site so easy. I reckon if I had the content at hand and used one of the new templates I could have a brand new site on the web in 10 minutes flat. In fact next time I do it I'm going to time myself and I'll let you know my personal best :D :D :D :D :D

And don't get me started on the Clickbank stuff. 10/10.

Really would be nice if xsitepro wasn't full of bugs that destroy pages.

I downloaded 2.5 (my mistake again) and get an error that I don't have permission to access some xsitepro bubbles background graphic and I need to contact my system administrator.

Then I go to open the old version and get this

XSite Pro Version 2.150.4002.27792
DB Version 204

Could not load file or assembly 'Clickbank, Version=2.500.4002.27814, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.


at Sol.XSitePro.frmMain..ctor()
at Sol.XSitePro.Program.Main(String[] argsArray)

Does xsitepro just always suck or just sometimes?

Now I can't even use the software and I had planned to develop ALL day and now I got nothing. Hello wordpress.

I am experiencing the same problems as DomainBuyerBroker.

I tried to upload the 2.5 update and I too get the message saying that I don't have permission to access the files.

Now my current version won't open with exactly the same error message that DomainBuyerBroker is getting.

I have submitted a support ticket but unfortunately nothing that has been suggested has fixed the problem yet.

Hi All,

My attempted update was aborted and now my xsitepro isn't working at all.
I received the following message when the aborted install happened.

XSite Pro Version 2.150.4002.27792
DB Version 204
Could not load file or assembly 'Clickbank, Version=2.500.4002.27814, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.
at Sol.XSitePro.frmMain..ctor()
at Sol.XSitePro.Program.Main(String[] argsArray)

I suspect that you have Kasperky Anti Virus and Internet Protection.
Please disable Kasperky and re-run the latest update.

If this is still being a problem you can raise a ticket here:

If I can be of any further help, do let me know.

I downloaded the new version and tried to install it. I got this message also.

I am using Norton anti-virus.

Any thoughts on what I need to do to get things working properly?
