Adobe has announced the end of new improvement features for Adobe Muse – its all-in-one solution for designers to create web content without needing to know code. March 26th, 2018 marked the last of new content updates, although the software company has said that it will continue to support technical issues for all active Creative Cloud subscriptions until March 26, 2020.
The reality of this announcement is twofold. It will force Muse users to transition to another platform. We highly recommend WordPress, for numerous reasons. The Adobe community, however, is looking at options such as RallyMind, which allows for those with WYSIWYG tendencies to retain centralized control, while also managing design layouts and migrated site landing pages using Google Sheets.
Adobe first launched Muse in 2012, which was at first, a promising platform to allow designers to build basic website frameworks without needing to know coding languages. After several years, Muse became more widely applicable due to the creation of third-party plugins which allowed for greater functionality. Eventually, Muse became able to allow designers to create fully mobile-responsive web products.
While Adobe is attempting to transition users to other Adobe applications, such as Dreamweaver and Adobe XD, our team highly recommends WordPress and WooCommerce.
