Whether on Facebook, Tumblr, podcasts, or blogs, everywhere you turn people are taking a look back at what they accomplished last year. Well, we hate to feel left out, so we wanted to join the fun!

Man, were our engineers busy in 2014. Below, we’ve collected a list of everything they added to the Webs experience in 2014, fueled by a desire to make Webs better every day – and an impressive volume of Mountain Dew.

WINTER, 2014

Website Redesign!
We kicked the year off by launching a redesign of the entire Webs external website. This included giving the whole site a new look and feel, and simplifying the signup experience for new users. Some of our favorite updates included the new themes page which shows big, bright previews of our designs, and the design overhaul of the Webs blog!



It’s a well-known fact that eye-catching imagery is an important part of any successful website. But beautiful images are not the whole story – the presentation of your images can make or break the overall effect. With that in mind, we recently took a step back and rebuilt Image Galleries in the Webs Sitebuilder from the ground up.

With the new Photo Gallery Module, site admins can pull entire groups of photos into their sites and manage all of their image settings in one place. This module can be added to any page where other builder modules are found today, and it can take your website to a whole new level.


Photography websites are a unique because the main content on the website consists of mostly images, rather than text. If you are running a photography website, here are some key elements you should incorporate into your website to make your photographs stand out.


A popular trend in photography websites nowadays is minimalism. This aspect is key, since your website should ultimately highlight, rather than detract, from your pictures. Not only should your layout be clean and simplistic, but so should your color scheme. Using a dark background, especially black, will increase the appearance of contrast in your photographs. Employing the theme of minimalism in all aspects of your site will be sure to keep the focus on your art, rather than the website. Check out the Webs template titled “Darkroom,” which was designed specifically for the needs of photographers.
