Custom Profile Questions are now available for your site members!

It’s a way to help your members interact and get to know eachother. It also assists with grouping your membership into categories.

Sidebars

Sidebars are here and ready for you to add to your site. What’s the benefit?  Sidebars are an easy way to show people what’s new without having to do any work. They automatically update themselves with the latest content, such as photos, videos, or forum posts, that have been added to your site.

How it works: You turn the sidebar app on, select the modules you like, choose where they will display (homepage and/or other pages), and you’re done.  That’s it!

Webs has the unique opportunity of sponsoring the move “War Child”, a documentary about the hip-hop artist Emmanuel Jal. Emmanuel spent time as a child solder in the Sudan, as well as time in refugee camps, and is now determined to share his experience so that all know and understand what happened. As a successful recording artist in Africa and the West, he is bringing peace to his beloved Sudan and building schools in Africa.

Intrigued? We certainly are. You’ll find his site on Webs, www.emmanuel-jal.webs.com, with the movie trailer, Emmanuel’s bio, exclusive photos from the movie shoot, videos, and links to learn more about Emmanuel, his music, his country, and his quest.

Hey Everyone,

A few new features and a couple of bug fixes for the Members App.  Here are the new features:

  • Invitations Tracking Page.  Opps, we left that out and now it’s back!  You’ll find it in Manage Members.
  • Send Email Blast page.  You asked for it and we delivered.  It’s now a tab in Manage Members.
  • Complete Profiles.  The Members Page on your site now displays members with profiles and not the members without profiles.
  • No more skipping.  Your members can no longer skip creating a profile when they join your site.
