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!

Today we are delighted to announce a project that our design and product teams have been hard at work on for the last few months – a new collection of website themes! Today on the Webs theme browser you can search, browse, and filter over 450 new premium themes, many with several color variations available.

Why add hundreds of new themes?

You asked for it, you got it.
One of the bits of feedback we hear most often from users is that they want more design choices. Whether you run a small business like many Webs customers, or maintain a personal blog, you want your website to be one of a kind. We hear that, and want to do everything we can to support that objective. Just like our original website templates, these new themes are all highly customizable, allowing site owners to choose their own fonts, colors, background images, and more.


Unless you are a graphic designer by trade, creating a website from a blank canvas can be a seriously daunting task. That’s why many sitebuilders offer templates over which users can lay their content, logo, images, etc. when creating a website. This option makes attractive websites infinitely more accessible to personal and small business website owners.

The trouble with the template model is the lack of variety that can occur. It’s not a great feeling to spend hours loading all of your content into a website only to discover over the next couple of weeks that there’s another site out there that looks just like yours.


Today’s Webs user example website comes to us all the way from Reykjavik, Iceland! Jon Arnar is an artist who uses his website to promote his exhibitions, show off his fantastic body of work, and sell paintings through an online store.

Aside from being up-to-date and robust, one feature that really makes Jon’s site stand out is his use of a very appropriate Webs theme called “Gallery” (appropriately).

This is a clean and understated theme that offers a little something extra toward the footer to give visitors a sense of place. This is especially nice for artists like Jon who live in a particular city but sell their artwork to people all over the world.


Have you noticed anything new in SiteBuilder3 lately? We recently added some brand new themes to our fully customizable library!

The Webs design and development teams are always gathering user feedback from our support team to gauge what people are looking for in our website builder. They take that information and periodically create new themes to give users even more flexibility when they create a personal portfolio, group site, or small business website.

The goal with this group of themes was to give viewers modern experiences using the latest in HTML5 and CSS3 (whether they know what those are or not!) To see the new themes for yourself, log in to your Webs account and select a website to edit. In the top right corner, click “Theme” and scroll through the options.
