As I understand it, the latest update for Artisteer was released in 2016 and this project is no longer being updated.
Also, the latest update for Themler was released in 2018 and this project is no longer being updated.
So now only one project is being developed - is it Nicepage? Right?

And will there be import of templates from Artisteer to Nicepage?

Hello,
Artisteer creates quite old-school themes and it reached its peak some time ago. There is no need to update it because in order to make it create modern websites we need to rewrite. We did it and created Themler. Themler project is still open and we update it and support. But currently all our resources are directed to the development of Nicepage. Therefore we release Themler updates not as often as before, but latest update was made this month (version 493 Beta).

Many Themler users were requesting the simpler design tool and the content editor. We have implemented those requests. Nicepage is fast, intelligent and easy-to-use. It allows creating modern designs based on any source in minutes. You can use an existing website, social network account or even a folder with images to create a modern and unique page just in seconds.

We will be glad if you become Nicepage user in the future.
As far as I know Nicepage doesn't have Artisteer or Themler projects import, you can ask Nicepage support directly if this is a feature for future updates.

Hello!

As I understand it, Themler and Nicepage are developed for different purposes.
Themler is rather a theme generator and NicePage a page builder.
Especially regarding CMS systems Themler is the better choice in my eyes. It is very compatible to plugins and works better with CMS systems when it comes to letting users change content via the standard interface.
Nicepage is in my opinion something for sites where individual content should always be generated, which doesn't come from the system.
Both programs have their user circle, a fusion might be interesting in some points.
Themler as template generator is the better choice for me!
So it would be a pity if it would get a sudden end sometime, like artisteer.

I probably speak for many that Themler's clientele should not become victims of NicePage's development!

You are right: a fusion might be helpful, when Nicepage is used to manage the content and Themler is for the design creation.

We understand the concern that Themler is getting less attention from the developers right now, but we do appreciate that many vote for it and this will be helpful for us to set the long term plans. Thank you.

Hello macais,

i fully agree with you

i go even further, Themler is a very good Template generator, which i don't want to miss.

And for CMS there are a lot of extensions, which do something similar to Nicepage

If Themler does not support such basic things as Bootstrap 4, Font Awesome & Pages Creator then I see no reason to renew my license. I do not understand how your development can compete with Gantry and T4 Framework, where everything is ready.

Why do you still not have what was in the Artisteer ? Many years have passed, but nothing better than the Artisteer you did not do.

i also just joinedthe thermaler theme maker,

i came from artisteer and loved its ability, i am sjust not getting into thermaler, however i want further upgrades, simple things like adding OTHER SOCIAL MEDIA SITES and ICONS alternatives like mewe.com, bitchute and rumble video sites, even parlor is another as an example... just to name a few.....

Let us add even our own alternative social media sites and icons dont limit us to facebook youtube, instagram and twitter etc... this was and has been 1 feature that HAS TO BE UPDATED... and not in nicepages....

not a lot of us have the money to keep moving to yet another program or development and subscription

Also allow some functionality to adjust not just a theme for say joomla for for forum boards that are components and extentions like kunura forums or other....

i notice that with the latest themes and bootstrap stuff and the themes of artisteer/thermaler can mess up say a theme for kunura which has its own theme for their forums....

i value the ability to make many adjustments for my themes, and currently i have issues with the 2 themes from artisteer and kunura theme and how i see the editor to write a post.... plus profile info.... granted i am using the latest artisteer version and have yet to import the theme here to thermaler but its important to me...
(the top menu of the forums is the area that i cant figure out where the color and link color conflict is and maybe how to fix it. at the same time the editor ovver laps the right vertical menu of the theme i created this never happened before,,,

i am not quite sure how to fix this especially in thermaler since i am very new here with it... i am late to the party of using it and just got an subscription after years of just enjoying artisteer alone (which i still love

Another words keep upgrading and updating the program and stop moving to a new theme program development..... Windows started around 3.0 and ms windows is still GOING With updates... now windows 10 get the picture? people who use linux do the same etc

i am still learning my way around here and would love to see 1 pdf file of the document of how to use thermaler not just docs online...... if internet connection is lost then we dont always have a way to look at what we maybe doing wrong artisteer 4 had one

take care
Mark

Hello Mark,

Thank you for your feedback. Some of things may become easier for you if you watch our first-steps video for your CMS: https://answers.themler.io/articles/4695/video-tutorials
Indeed, Themler requires internet connection, but Themler desktop uses it not as often as Themler on your website (though it is still required for loading, saving and export, using Sections and Images libraries etc.)
For any specific questions or issues you are welcome to create separate topics - private or public - so that we can look closer at them.

Sincerely,
Nettie
