Welcome to our EverWeb 2016 Review Edition! First of all we want to thank you all for your continued support and for making 2016 a great EverWeb year! Thanks, you’re Awesome!
It’s been an incredibly busy 2016 for EverWeb so without any delay, here’s our 2016 Review!
From EverWeb version 1.9 – 2.0.2
We started the year with EverWeb at version 1.9. Language support for Chinese, Portuguese and Swedish came in February as well as a major update to the Video widget and many other minor enhancements. In September we added support for the new macOS Sierra operating system in EverWeb version 1.9.7 before unveiling EverWeb 2.0 in November.
Undoubtedly EverWeb 2.0’s all new blogging feature was the highlight of 2016. For many it completes a journey from iWeb to EverWeb especially as it’s easy to import blog posts from iWeb into EverWeb. The user interface should also be familiar to iWeb users, with many additions and enhancements to make blogging 2016 friendly! The new inline blog editor, preview window and Master Page like features also allow for more creativity and consistency within your blogging environment.
EverWeb version 2.0 also introduced the all new Contact Form Advanced widget for advanced contact form design, a new RSS Subscribe button and character spacing in the Text Inspector.
We added and enhanced many other features in EverWeb over the year such as an updated Video widget and enhancements to the PayPal E-Commerce, Image Gallery and Heading Tags widgets. EverWeb’s Toolbar was relocated from the bottom of the UI to the top, bringing better compatibility with OS X and macOS Sierra as well as improved workflow. Additional Theme Templates were also added throughout the year.
We also took the time to update and expand the EverWeb User Manual to keep up it to date as new product features arrived and also to streamline content to make it easier to use and find what you want! It’s also now available from the Projects Window when you launch EverWeb.
April 2016 Survey
We have lots of exciting plans for 2017 and your continued support, comments and feedback really helps us make EverWeb better every year! We would like to thank everyone who also took part in our April 2016 Survey. The survey is incredibly valuable as it tells us what you want to see in EverWeb in the future and how we can better help and support the EverWeb community. April’s survey told us that blogging was the top requested feature. This had been a long in the works feature and came to fruition with EverWeb 2.0 in November. Again, we just want to say a big ‘Thank You’ for your patience. The new blogging platform is a great environment which we will be building upon in 2017!
