Take a break from your tough Wednesday by taking a look at the awesome website we are showcasing on our example site blog post!

This week we are showcasing Halo: Next Generation, a community based website revolving around the Halo video games. We know that a site like this isn’t the typical site that we would showcase on Example Site Wednesday, but HNG has a very effective site that anybody can learn from. Take a look for yourself before we break down their site for you:

In addition to a well designed and organized site, HNG takes advantage of some very essential Webs features including:

  • Members app to allow visitors to sign up as members to gain exclusive content.
  • Calendar app to display important dates of holidays and events.
  • Contact page to allow visitors a simple way to contact the site owner and to add credibility.

A common problem that we hear from a lot of site owners is: How to make site members more active?

Example Site Wednesday: Airedale Terrier Club of Illinois

It’s Wednesday again so we are going to be showcasing another awesome website made by Webs users. This week, we chose a site that we think everyone will enjoy. Airedale Terrier Club of Illinois is the website of an organization that is dedicated to protection and advancement of Airedale Terriers. The site itself has a very classy feel to it, take a look for yourself:

It’s Wednesday already, so that means another example site! This week we take a look at Daxton’s Fish, a website dedicated to the fight against Neuroblastoma, also known as Pediatric Cancer.

Daxton’s Fish not only uses Webs features for a great cause, but they built a great website as well. With a simple design, awesome header (learn more), and easy navigation, the site is super user-friendly and entices visitors to explore more.

Daxton Fish’s ability to create relationships with their visitors is exceptional, and having these key Webs features doesn’t hurt either: READ MORE

We are planning a 15 minute maintenance outage tomorrow, July 2nd from 7:30 a.m. – 7:45 a.m. EDT (-4 GMT).

The outage will impact Calendar App Only.  During the outage, this application page on your websites might not show up, nor will you have the ability to edit it.  However, other pages will not be affected by the outage and will show up regularly.

If you need help converting outage times to your time zone, please use the following handy converter: [HERE]

Thank you for your understanding and patience. READ MORE


As you know, we are going through improvements for each of our apps. We recently updated photos, forums, and webstores. Now its time for a Calendar Update. This new release adds several new and exciting features that have come from your suggestions and requests.

What’s new?

  • RSS feeds: Visitors can now subscribe to your calendar with an RSS feed that shows upcoming events (there’s a new icon at the bottom of your calendar)
  • Event Locations: You can now add a location to each event posted with the option of turning on a link to a Google map for quick directions.
  • Calendar Overlays: You can now choose to overlay some default calendars (examples: national holidays, religious holidays, phases of the moon) on top of your site calendar. This new feature is found in the Calendar Settings. These events added through calendar overlays can be toggled on/off. They are only on the calendar view and do not have event views. You can also import events from any calendar in iCal format.
  • Social Publishing (shared calendars): Your members can now add events to your calendar based on their permissions. You can choose the required membership level for posting one-time and recurring events from the Calendar settings (you can also turn it off from here).

We’ve spent more time on QA this time around and hope you’ve enjoyed the smoother launch. I look forward to your feedback.



PS – one thing we have not yet added is RSVPs for events. This is however something we plan on adding as well. READ MORE
