Introducing EverWeb Version 2.6: Lightning Publishing, Scroll Position and Much More!

November 30th, 2017

We’re pleased to announce the immediate availability of EverWeb version 2.6 which features up to 5x faster publishing and the new Scroll Position feature. We have updated and improved lots of features as well as some updating of EverWeb’s User Interface graphics. This release is packed full of improvements so check out the full list of what’s new and updated below. You will also find instructions on how to update your version of EverWeb to version 2.6 as well…


EverWeb 2.6 is available in two versions:

  • OS X 10.7 – 10.8 (32-Bit): Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion, Mavericks
  • OS X 10.9 and higher (64-Bit): Mavericks, Yosemite, El Capitan,  Sierra, High Sierra

EverWeb version 2.5.1 will remain the current version for users of OS X version 10.6 for now.

When updating to EverWeb version 2.6, the update process will automatically download the correct version of EverWeb for your macOS.


EverWeb version 2.6 Includes…

[NEW] Fast Publishing for EverWeb+Hosting, FTP and FTP over SSH. In EverWeb’s Preferences you can specify how many files can be uploaded at once.

[NEW] Scroll Position lets you insert an anchor position and from Inspector->Hyperlinks you can select one when you select ‘Link to one of my pages’

[NEW] 20 new Theme Templates have been added, many using scroll position and some with themed blog pages.

[NEW] Type Ahead for Theme Templates. When adding a page, if you know the Theme Template your want, just start typing the name of the Theme and EverWeb will take you to the Theme as you type.

[NEW] Server Preview Preferences. You can view previews on any local device on your local network. Use EverWeb-> Preferences-> General to turn Server Preview on or off as desired.

[NEW] New Widget icon ‘covers’ for all inbuilt widgets.

[NEW] New Insert Button icons which can also be scaled as reqiured.

[NEW] New Instagram button.

[NEW] PayPal widget now lets you specify height/width of custom buttons so you can add retina buttons.

[NEW] PayPal widget now uses updated style default ‘Buy’ buttons.

[NEW] PayPal widget now includes a ‘Donate’ option.

[NEW] Animations now work with shadows.

[NEW] Scroll Position Anchor icon added to the Toolbar.

[NEW] Insert -> Scroll Position menu option.

[NEW] A ‘New’ label is included in the Theme Template Chooser when new Theme Templates have been added.

[NEW] URL of published website will be shown if you are overwriting one when publishing. Only for the English version of EverWeb at present.

[IMPROVED] Working with a project file with full width images should be faster when resizing the window or the design canvas.

[IMPROVED] Previewing a website will only export the image for the screen type e.g. only a retina image on retina Macs is exported.

[IMPROVED] Page shadow background uses CSS now so it looks better when you specify a top margin.

[IMPROVED] Shadows are exported as CSS unless you are using a PNG or shape that is anything other than a rectangle.

[IMPROVED] Renaming pages or directories no longer creates a new XML file in the project file, preventing project files from growing very large, very quickly.

[FIX] When duplicating directories with sub pages, the sub pages are now also duplicated.

[FIX] The FaceBook Page Timeline widget now respects the ‘Show Timeline’, ‘Messages’ and ‘Events’ checkboxes.

[FIX] Full width scale to fill images should be exported properly with the scale to fill effect in the browser. The images are exported at the highest possible size.

    I keep checking my everweb “check for updates” feature and it keeps saying 2.5 is the latest version for my computer. Is 2.6 out yet?

  2. Simon Says:

    Hi Tony!

    Thanks for the message. The ‘Check for Update’ feature had a slight problem so had to be disabled for the time being. To work around this, please go to the website and download the free trial version of EverWeb (which is version 2.6). If you have a current license for EverWeb, the version you download will be the full product that allows you to publish your website.

    We are currently working on a fix for the issue with the ‘Check for Updates’ feature. Our apologies for the inconvenience this may have caused you.

  3. Tony Says:

    Thank you! I did that and it worked! I didn’t get the instagram widget with the download. Is it currently available?

  4. Simon Says:

    Hi Tony

    Glad that the updating worked! In EverWeb 2.6 there is a new Instagram button on the Insert-> Buttons menu. We’re working on an Instagram widget but I don’t have a timeframe at the moment… keep checking the blog and forums for updates. We’ve got a lot planned over the next few months! ?
