Architect – HTML and Site Builder


Architect is the most powerful and easy to use site and html builder not only on codecanyon, but probably on the internet as well. It has all the features you would except from a site builder, while also offering exclusive ones like themes & templates, closely integrated code editors, the best visual css and image editor around and much more.

Admin Account/Area

You can see a demo of admin area by logging in with username: and password: admin, note that destructive actions like deleting and editing are disabled on demo site.

It’s recommend to register for a new account on demo site if you want to test the builder, because default admin account is shared between multiple users.
