Some of you may notice a few differences here on the blog. We have updated our blog URL, and made a few tweaks along the way.

You can now find us at blog.webs.com. Those of you who subscribe to our RSS feed will want to update this information to continue keeping up with the latest and greatest happenings at Webs. You will find that the old comments are missing, unfortunately this is a result of the transfer. Think of it as a fresh start!

Turning over this new leaf also brings some visual enhancements and some session time-out improvements, (if you don’t notice this, it’s because it’s working!). You can still access the blog through all the same channels and we’ll still be bringing the great updates, feature launches, announcements and contests that you all come for, so stay tuned!

I’m pleased to announce the launch of a feature I’ve had my eyes on for a looong time.  As you all are aware, for years our site owners have requested the ability to have additional “Admins” on their sites.  There are several use cases for this including a group collaborating around a site, or a web designer who wants to administer all of his clients’ sites from one dashboard.  Last year, we released the WebsID system and “master dashboard” which you can now access by logging into webs via your email/password combination.  What we did not have is a way to set admins for your website.  Well now we do!  You can now set members to “Admin” status and give them full editing access to your site (with a few limitations).

The new Member Forum is finally here! This new forum is replacing the current open forums, and will house both our Support forum and our open discussions.

Unlike our existing forum, we now have the ability to assign moderators from within the Webs Community. This is something you have requested for some time, and something we have wanted but have been unable to do for a while.

The new forum has all the bells and whistles that you would expect from a robust forum, and I have to admit that there is SO MUCH there that we will be making tweaks for a few weeks as this gets running.

New Template

Last week, we added the template “Simple”, before that, “Clean Splash”.  This week’s addition is “Time“.  As you might expect, there are three motifs, one for each time of day: Day, Evening (or Morning), and Night.

Take a look and enjoy! [LINK]

New Template

There’s a new template in town titled “Subtle”.  The background comes in five colors – green, pink, pale blue, slate grey and burnt orange.  Of course, you can always add your own background.  Take a look at the new template here.  To see what custom backgrounds look like, look at the Forum and the Photo Gallery.  And, if you’d like to tour the various templates we offer, take a spin through the Templates Ring.

Speaking of Rings, we’re continuing to address issues here and would love your comments. To access rings, go here.

Site Designer

Hi Everyone,

We are pleased to announce Site Designer is now live! If you haven’t had the chance to check it out yet, Site Designer is a brand new tool that allows template customization and site-wide design changes all prior to publishing.

There are tons of things you can do quickly and easily with the new Site Designer. Here are a few features which you might like to explore:

  • Change & Preview Template – Browse through all available templates and quickly see how your website looks with a new layout before publishing it live.
  • Adjust Background Colors – Now it’s easier then ever to change background colors and insert background images, making the template you love even more customizable.
  • Edit Site Title, Tagline & Footer – The new tool lets you easily change your Site Title, Tagline and Footer.  It also allows you to hide your titles for those of you who have a title in your custom header. (We will also be adding title fonts, colors, and styling in the future)
  • Upload Logo – Now you can adjust the website template even further by uploading your company logo or a favorite photo. Remember, it’s a great way to make the current templates unique.

What’s great is that you can make and preview all the changes you want prior to publishing them to your site.  Ready? Check it out here: http://fw.members.freewebs.com/s/designer/.  (Note: This feature is for users who use our sitebuilder.  HTML only accounts cannot use this feature).
