Today we released a few updates for the Web Store App:

Custom Question Field – Special Instruction

Site owners now have the option to add a custom question in a new field when adding a new product to the Web Store. You can choose to make it a requirement for a customer to answer prior to placing their order.

How can this feature help you?

Let’s say you sell cakes, and you want to make sure that your customers do not order anything they might be allergic to… Now you can! Get this valuable information, all while keeping your customers on the Web Store page to ensure they order and get the best service possible!


Did you spot the small update we released yesterday? You can now quickly and easily manage your WebsId settings all from the comfort of your dashboard!

What you can edit:

– WebsID (email address)

– Password

– Update your Profile Name, Gender, Location & Date of Birth

– If you wish, you can easily delete WebsID from the new settings window

How to Access Dashboard?

– Dashbaord is the first page you see when you log in using email address/password combination


We rolled out some changes to the way international characters worked on our platform to support more characters.

There was a bug with older content that had been posted so we rolled back the change.  We’ve made an update to older content yesterday and have rolled out the changes again.  We are continuing to tweak a few things, for example with comments.  Typically it would mean some characters showing up as ??? on your site.

Let us know if you find any other issues.

We are happy to announce that today, we pushed out a filter to cut down on the number of guestbook spam comments that our users have been receiving.  This has been a painful issue for a lot of you, to eliminate the problem we have been working silently on resolving this issue.  We believe that the new filtering system will greatly cut down on the number of such posts.

If after today you see other comments come through, please notify us so that we can continue to improve the filtering process.


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 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!


The new site manager has been released!  With this release, we really wanted to streamline the editing experience and remove as much superfluous content as possible.  Here’s some of the changes:

1. No more big app icons on the top of the site manager.  These are replaced with two simple buttons, one for adding a new page, and one for adding a new app.
– We’ve also moved the function to add a link to navbar, inside the “add a page” popover
– And we’ve added a link to the app store from the add a page popover as well


Couple new features we released yesterday:

1) You can now delete members right from your site.  If you are logged in as the site owner, there is a new “delete member” link on your members’ profiles.  You don’t have to be in the sitebuilder anymore to perform this action.

2) When a member is deleted, they can no longer rejoin the site immediately.  Instead, they will sit as a “pending member” until you approve them. This is part of the member banning option that a lot of you have been asking for.


Today we launched fixes and enhancements for the photo app. Here’s a short summary:

  • Default Settings – Site owners are now able to set default album settings. What does this mean? Default album is the album in which your member photo submissions are automatically placed. If the default setting (defined in the gallery) changes, then it will automatically affect all albums that are currently using the default setting.
  • Moving Photos – You can now move photos from one album to another by hovering over the image and using the move icon.


Last nights’ outage bought you new forums app enhancements!  Here’s a short summary:

Category protection – you can now set permissions on certain categories, this is really useful for creating a Moderatory-ONLY section where only mods can read and post
Auto-hiding flagged posts – There’s a new Setting that lets you choose to auto-hide posts after a certain number of flags.
Forum search – now searches the entire forum even if you are within a topic
General speed and stability improvements


We’ve had ups and downs over the past couple of weeks, and here is what we have to show for it.

Videos – Uploading is back!
After a long period in hiding, video uploading is back! You can still embed videos using a URL, or by searching YouTube, but now have the ability to upload your own videos as well. Within three weeks, your site members will be able to upload videos to your site as well based on your site member settings.

The rebirth of the video uploader includes much more generous video size restrictions, as well as supporting far more codec’s. The video encoder delivers higher resolution videos, and a new video player.
