I had been using Artisteer for years. Development pretty much ended around 2015. The WordPress 5.5 update caused issues that required some major changes to the template. That was impossible with Artisteer. After some research, I switched to Nicepage.

I’m in the process of migrating three sites from Blogger to WordPress including this site. The process is tedious and a little complicated, but it is manageable. Once you have physically migrated, you need to tweak the posts, categories and tags a bit. The most important part though, is to carefully apply 301 redirects to ensure that existing search listings will lead to the current content.
I use Artisteer to create themes for my WordPress sites. As I was testing the sites, I noticed a major issue.
I noticed that when I resized the browser to a more square aspect ratio, the image would start to overlap the two right columns. As I researched there were a lot of solutions posted about modifying functions.php and using plugins. The issue was that none of the instruction were really clear as to where to put the code in functions.php much less which functions. php to use.
I was building a WordPress site where the headline and slogan were relatively long. At certain aspect ratios, the text overlapped the logo image in the header.
The solution was to add some custom CSS and to make use of the Artisteer responsive design.

We use Artisteer to create templates for our Joomla projects. It does a great job overall.
We were trying to create a top menu and it was rendering as text, not as a graphical menu.

If you use Artisteer to generate a template for your Joomla sites, you may find it frustrating when dealing with a graphical vertical menu. When you look at your site, you see your vertical menu displayed as text, not as the graphics you intended.
We just switched to Artisteer 4. For many of my Joomla Templates, the text was not lining up with the bullets. Instead of
* Item 1
* Item 2
* Item 3
I was seeing
We use Fabrik to build forms and applications in our Joomla sites (www.Fabrikar.com). It’s a great extension. We also use Artisteer to design our templates. (www.artisteer.com) . Both are excellent applications.
We had a bit of trouble figuring out how to modify the settings of tables in sites that use an Artisteer generated table. We use JCE as our content editor.
The solution was quite simple:
Yes, I know.. Tables are deprecated.. However, they can be useful in certain cases.
