Choosing the Right Blog Commenting Engine in EverWeb

Thursday, March 3rd, 2022

When setting up your blog in EverWeb, you might want to include a comments section so that your visitors can comment on, or discuss, your posts in a public forum. A comments section is a great way to engage more directly with your website visitors and customers, helping you garner feedback on your current products and services. You blog can also help you poll visitors about ideas that you may have for future products or services, in an easy, cost effective way. If you are not running a business, the comments section in your blog may just be a place for active, lively debate and discussion!

Choosing Your Comment Engine

EverWeb offers you two Comment Engine choices: Disqus ( or Facebook Comments ( Both of these Comment ‘Engines’ offer similar features to each other although there are some important differentiators that may persuade you to choose one comment engine over the other. Typically the comment engine that you choose will be determined mainly by the audience that you want to target with your blog.

Note that you will first need to create your user identity in the comment engine of your choice before being able to use this. In Disqus, this is known as a ‘Shortname’ whilst in FaceBook Comments this is known as an ‘App ID’.

You can find a step by step guide on setting up your Disqus or FaceBook Comments comments engine in the EverWeb User Manual, which you can find from the Help-> EverWeb PDF Manual menu option.

Below is a summary of the main features or each Comment Engine and its perceived advantages and disadvantages to help you decide which is best for you to implement.


Disqus was founded in 2007 and has more than 35 million users worldwide. Disqus’ main features include…

  1. Real Time Discussions
  2. You can login using Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo!, Microsoft and others
  3. Threaded Comments
  4. Comments can be imported and exported
  5. Comments are easy to edit
  6. Discovery feature to find further website content
  7. Comment Moderation can be done using Email

The advantages for using Disqus are..

  1. Real time commenting and alerts
  2. Easy to use interface

FaceBook Comments

The FaceBook Comments engine leverages off of FaceBook itself to link comments to users public FaceBook profile. Facebook Comments features include…

  1. If you are logged in to Facebook you can comment immediately
  2. You can login via Facebook, Yahoo! or Microsoft
  3. Threaded Comments
  4. Like and Reply options are included
  5. Analytics are free
  6. Comments ordered by the number of Likes
  7. It includes a good Anti-Spam tool

The advantages of using FaceBook Comments are…

  1. Visitors publishing comments on their public Facebook Profile
  2. Where you have a large number of website visitors using Facebook

Making Your Choice…

Facebook Comments will probably be your choice of Comment Engine if you have a large number of website visitors using Facebook and for visitors who want their comments published in their public Facebook profile.

if you are looking for ease of use, realtime commenting,longer term engagement and SEO features, Disqus will likely be your preferred Comment Engine.

Adding Your Comment Engine to Your EverWeb Blog

Once you have chosen your Comment Engine and have either your App ID or your Shortname, you can activate your Comments Section in your EverWeb made blog.

Simply go to the Posts page in your EverWeb project file, then scroll down to the bottom of the Widget Settings pane. The last section is ‘Comment Options’. Select either Disqus or FaceBook Comments from the dropdown menu then enter in either your ‘Shortname’ or ‘App ID’.

EverWeb, macOS Big Sur and Apple Silicon [UPDATED]

Thursday, January 21st, 2021

[UPDATE] Good News EverWebers! Our next release, EverWeb 3.5, will be a universal binary so will run natively on both Apple Silicon and Intel Mac’s. EverWeb 3.5 is currently in beta test, so we hope to have the public release version in the near future for you!

For Apple, 2020 was the year that the company broke with chip provider Intel with the introduction of Apple Silicon and the new M1 microprocessor chip in the 13″ MacBook Air, 13″MacBook Pro and the Mac Mini.

What impact does the move to Apple Silicon, and the introduction of macOS Big Sur, have on EverWeb? Find out below…

It’s Not The First Time…

This is not the first time that Apple has changed microchip providers for its hardware. It is actually the third time that Apple has changed the Central Processing Unit (CPU) architecture of its hardware. In 2005, Apple announced it was transitioning its hardware from PowerPC to Intel and before that, in 1996, it transitioned from the Motorola 68000 platform to the PowerPC platform.

Any change in the microprocessor architecture means that the Operating System software, and the applications that the OS runs, will also need to be reconfigured in order to be compatible with the new, underlying, hardware.

Why the Need for Change?

For Apple the reasons for transitioning to the new Apple Silicon architecture are clear. Its laptop, desktop and server offerings can leverage from the the same basic architecture that is found in iPhones and iPads. This makes integration and synergy between iOS an macOS a lot easier and seamless. The second reason is that Apple now has more end to end control, making both hardware and software more efficient in the process. We can already see this in the computational and speed improvements in the new M1 chip which takes CPU architecture to the next level of development. There is also the benefit of cost savings for Apple due to economies of scale as now its hardware uses the same basic CPUs in all its products. Lastly, the delay of new processors from Intel over the last few years has caused product delays for Apple, and Intel now lags behind its more agile competitors in the market.

Intel, Apple Silicon and macOS Big Sur

Apple has set itself the goal for the transition from Intel to Apple Silicon to be within two years. This is the same time frame as the switch from PowerPC to Intel. It is reassuring to know that this transition is achievable and should be relatively painless given Apple’s past experience of doing this.

The stage for the hardware transition has already been set with the introduction three Apple Silicon computers and the introduction of macOS Big Sur which runs on both Intel and on Apple Silicon architectures. In addition, macOS Big Sur now starts to take design cues from iOS and iPadOS again, helping Apple to further integrate their product ecosystem.

The two year product transition gives Apple time to update all its hardware to use Apple Silicon and gives software vendors time to repurpose their apps to be Apple Silicon compatible.

EverWeb 3.4 is fully compatible with macOS Big Sur on Intel machines. So what about compatibility with Apple Silicon? To understand how EverWeb works under Apple Silicon, let’s start with a bit of transition history…

Enter Rosetta and Rosetta 2

When Apple transitioned from PowerPC to Intel chips, it introduced a program called Rosetta. This program acted as a ‘Compatibility Box’ enabling apps designed for the old PowerPC architecture to run on the new Intel architecture.

Rosetta was very much a success for Apple, so it has leveraged this success and experience for the transition from Intel to Apple Silicon with the introduction of Rosetta 2. If you use EverWeb on an Apple Silicon computer, it will work through Rosetta 2 which will automatically ‘translate’ EverWeb from Intel to Apple Silicon. You probably will not even notice any difference using EverWeb under Apple Silicon as Apple years of experience in optimizing Rosetta make it work smoothly for most apps that need translating.

After installing EverWeb on your Apple Silicon based computer, when you first run the app, you may be asked to install Rosetta in order for EverWeb to run. If you have previously installed Rosetta on your computer, you will not see this message and EverWeb should launch as usual.

EverWeb as a Universal App

In summary:

  • EverWeb 3.4 and higher is fully compatible with Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite thru to macOS 11 Big Sur.
  • EverWeb 3.4 and higher will run on Apple Silicon computers through Rosetta 2* running on macOS 11 Big Sur.
  • EverWeb 3.1 is available if you are running Mac OS X 10.7 – 10.9.
  • EverWeb 2.5.2 is available if you are running Mac OS X 10.6.

* In the future we will be releasing EverWeb as a Universal app. This means that EverWeb will support both Apple Silicon and Intel processors, using Apple Silicon as the default. As such, EverWeb will then run natively on Apple Silicon without the need to use Rosetta.

We will, of course, keep the EverWeb community reprised as to our progress in making EverWeb a Universal App.

EverWeb Preferences 1: The Account Tab

Thursday, February 20th, 2020
EverWeb's Preferences Tab

EverWeb’s Preferences are used to define systemwide settings and controls. As such the Preferences that you set will apply to all of your EverWeb projects. You can access the Preferences window through the EverWeb-> Preferences menu option or by pressing the Cmd+, shortcut keys.

The Preferences window is a floating window so you can keep it open if needed whilst working on your website project. You can minimise the window using the yellow minimise button in the top left hand corner of the window. This will minimise the window to the dock. Click on the window in the dock to return it to its pre-minimized state. If you have the Preferences window open, but cannot find it (e.g. you have many other windows covering it), use EverWeb’s Window menu then select Preferences. To close the Preferences window, use the red close button in the top left hand corner of the window.

There are four Preferences tabs: Account, General, Publishing and Backup. In this blog we take an in-depth look at the first tab…

The Account Tab

The first tab in the Preferences window is the Account tab. This is the tab that you use to login to your EverWeb account. It is the same account as the one that you set up originally when you purchase (or try out) EverWeb.

Creating and Using an EverWeb Account

If are evaluating EverWeb and have downloaded the software to try it out, use the ‘Create Account’ link to create your own EverWeb account. Click on the Account dropdown menu and select ‘Register’. Enter your details and click the box to accept the terms and conditions before clicking the ‘Register’ button to create the account. Once you have an account you can use it on the EverWeb Support Forums. The account you create can also used if you decide to purchase EverWeb at a later time.

When you have created an account use the email and password that you have set up in the account registration form in the Email and Password fields of the Account tab. Click on the ‘Sign In’ button to log in to your EverWeb account. You can opt to add your email/password details to your Apple account’s keychain (which is recommended).

If at any time you need to change your password, you can do so by using the ‘Forgot Password’ hyperlink. Follow the instructions to reset your password.

Usually, you will always stay signed in to EverWeb. There is no need to sign out.

The Accounts Dialog Box

Once you have clicked on the ‘Sign In’ button, the ‘Accounts’ dialog box will display information about the services that you have associated with your EverWeb account together with when they are due to expire. Note that the expiry date for EverWeb relates to the technical support and updates that you receive. If you do not renew your support and services plan after the expiry date, you will still be able to use the original EverWeb product that you purchased. You will, however, not receive any product updates or qualify for 7×24 technical support.

If you have an EverWeb+Hosting account, you will see on the left of the account name a triangle dropdown symbol. If you click on this symbol, you will see all of the domains that are associated with your account.

In addition to your EverWeb account you may also see additional accounts e.g. if you have purchased the Contact Forms Enhanced you will see this listed below your EverWeb+Hosting account.

Managing Your Account

When signed in to your EverWeb account, you have access to the ‘Manage Account’ button. When you click on this button you will be taken to your EverWeb Account profile in a browser window. Once you have logged in to your account, you will be able to administer your customer profile and all the services attached to your EverWeb account.

Other Account Tab Options

The Account tab has two other options. The first is ‘Use Secure Publishing’. If you have connection problems when trying to publish your website, deselecting this option may help your website to publish.

The last option ‘Automatically Check For Updates’ was introduced to EverWeb in version <find out> When a new version of EverWeb is released, when you next log in to the product, you will be asked if you would like to install the update if you are not currently on the latest version. If you dismiss this reminder, EverWeb will prompt you again a few days later if you have the ‘Automatically Check For Updates’ box checked.

In the next blog, we will take an in-depth look at the Preferences window’s General tab.

Target Your Market with EverWeb’s Language Localization

Sunday, February 4th, 2018


EverWeb’s Language Localization feature is a great way to target geographic local markets and audiences or for multilingual websites that targets different countries and/or language groups. When designing and building a website, you probably have some kind of audience, focus or target in mind right from the outset. Even if your website seems to have no specific target market or audience, you can still apply some SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) and SERP (Search Engine Results Page) implementation with Language Localization.


Targeting a Non-Target Market

If you think your website does not have a target market or audience, think again, as you will have written your site’s pages using at least one language.  At this level, your market or audience scope is probably very large e.g. all English, Spanish, or Chinese speakers. Even at this scale, you have a place to start for SEO and you can optimize more as you learn more about your target market later on.

At this scale, set your Language Localization at the global level in your EverWeb Project file. To do this:

  1. Go to the File-> Edit Publishing Settings menu, or click on your Project name in the Web Page List. The Site Publishing Settings will appear.
  2. In the ‘Head/Footer Code’ section is the ‘Language’ option. Click on the drop down box and select the language that your website is written in e.g. if your website is written in Spanish, select ‘Spanish’.
  3. When you click on the drop down to open the list of available languages, start to type the name of your language. The language list uses predictive search. As you type, the closer to your language you will get in the list.
  4. Once you have selected the language you want to use, publish your entire website as the global nature of the language localization will be applied to all of the pages in the Project file

Your website will use the language localization setting to better to serve web visitors with results that are geared relevant to Spanish speaking audience.


Narrowing The Market Focus

You probably noticed that as well as the ‘Spanish’ language option, there were other ‘Spanish’ language options available on a country by country level. If your website is geared towards only one specific country, select the Spanish country option for your market e.g. ‘Spanish (Chile)’ This will help better refine your SEO for your target market or audience.


Market Targeting with Multilingual Websites

If you have a website that uses more than one language, using EverWeb’s Language Localization feature on a page by page basis is probably the most suitable way to optimize for a better SERP. Again, it’s easy to set up:

  1. First set up the primary language that website uses in Site Publishing Settings as we did above when setting up Spanish (Chile) as our primary language.
  2. The next step is to use the Language Localization drop down menu on each page of your website that uses the secondary language.
  3. To do this, select a page in your Project that uses the secondary language.
  4. Next go to the Page Settings tab in the Inspector Window.
  5. In the ‘Page Details’ section is the ‘Language Localization’ drop down. Select the language and country that you require. In our example,  the Project file is mainly in Spanish as it is targeting the Chilean market, however, there are also some pages in Portuguese for the Brazilian market. In this case, set the page  Language Localization as Portuguese (Brazil).

When using Language Localization on a page by page basis in your website, it does not matter if you have more than one language/country combination in the Project file as long as you each has its own page. In our example above, we could also have had pages for Spanish speakers in Bolivia. In this case, the Language Localization would be set to ‘Spanish (Bolivia)’ to more specifically target Bolivian Spanish speakers.


If you have created multiple project files for your multilingual website and linked them together using external URL links, it will be easy to implement Language Localization at the website (global) level for each project file.


EverWeb’s Language Localization feature can help your SEO and SERP rankings at all levels within your website, even if your website appears not to have any  specific market or audience focus.

Creating A Modern Full Width Resize On Scroll Header In EverWeb

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

We recently released a popular video tutorial that demonstrates how to create a full width header that can resize as the user scrolls down the page. This can make your website have a more modern feel to it, as this type of header is becoming more widely used on professionally built websites.

This effect not only will make your site look and feel more modern, but it also adds a bit of convenience to your website visitors. Rather than having to scroll all the way back up to the top of the page, visitors will be able to access your website’s navigation menu at all times, making it much easier to navigate from page to page.

Check out the video below and see how you can add this feature to your website. The widget can be found at EverWebCodeBox.

With the help of a very powerful widget, you can add a sticky header that resizes when you scroll down the page of your EverWeb site. Here is an example of a basic sticky header that I will show you how to create in EverWeb.

The widget that we will be using to create this header was developed by a third-party EverWeb widget developer named Roddy. The widget is available for purchase at a modest price on Roddy’s website

You can locate it by clicking on the Widgets 3 link, followed by hovering over Responsive and selecting resize header. Scrolling down this page will show you another example of this widget in use.

In this tutorial I am going to show you how I created this header using the widget. This widget is powerful and comprehensive, so I will be skipping over some of the controls that I don’t need to use or ones that I accept the default values for. I am making sure that I cover the most important aspects of the widget, and provide you with enough information to be able to move forward with creating your own header.

I also want to point out that Roddy actively updates his widgets, so if you see a control in your widget that you do not see here, it is because the widget has been updated after the release of this video.

The header that we will be creating has 4 main parts to it. There is the background, the logo, the text, and the navigation menu.

So starting with a blank page for the purpose of this demonstration, I will drag and drop the widget onto the page. This is what appears by default.

The very first thing I will do is make the header full width. I do this by clicking on the Metrics tab, and then enabling the Full Width option.

I will now click on the Widget Settings tab.

The Background

The first thing I will do to the widget settings is change the background color of the header. This is done by clicking on the color control next to where it says Background. You will also notice that there is a Background B. This is because by default, the background will be a Gradient. Since I want a solid color, I will also make Background B the same color as the one I chose before.

The Logo

Next I am going to add the image. I have already added the image to the assets list, so I just need to click on Choose and then select it.

My logo appears much smaller than I want, so I will adjust the value next to width, until my desired width for my logo is displayed.

I also want the logo to be closer to the top of the header, so I will adjust the value next to Top.

The logo is also a bit further to the left than I want it to be so I will adjust the value next to Left.

I will also adjust the Resize Width so that the logo is my desired size once it has been resized.

I will also adjust the Resize Top value so that the logo is a bit further from the top.

The Text

The next thing I will do is replace the heading with my own.

I will also type in my desired Font Family. Since this is a Google Font, I will check the option for Google Font.

You will also notice that the text is overlapping with the logo, so I am going to adjust the value next to Left to move it a bit to the right.

I will also modify the resize left value.

The Navigation

The next thing we will do is add the navigation menu. This is done by adding the navigation menu widget by dragging and dropping it onto the header.

Next, I will click on the Metrics tab and enable the Full Width option. Back on the Widget Settings for the navigation menu, I am going to change the alignment from Left, to Right, since my navigation is on the right side of my header. I will also position the navigation menu somewhere around the middle of the header.

I will also click on the Fonts button to open up the fonts window to select my font.

The rest of the modifications that I make to the navigation menu will be done using the controls on the Full Width Resize Widget, so I will click back to that widget, and then select the Widget Settings tab in the Inspector, and then scroll down to the navigation menu section.

I am going to increase the value next to Resize Top so my navigation menu is bit further away from the top.

I will now adjust the link color, as well as the hover color. You will notice that some of the changes made to the navigation menu will not appear in EverWeb. This is normal. Your navigation menu will appear much different when your site is previewed or published.

I also do not want there to be a background for my navigation menu so I will select Transparent background.

I will modify the font size since I want it to be a bit larger.

I am going to decrease the minimum width for the links in the navigation menu because I want this spacing between links to be a bit smaller.

My navigation menu does not contain a drop down menu so I will skip over the drop down menu style controls.

The last thing I will do is check the boxes to fix the header and navigation and activate the resize on scroll.

We have now just re-created this header.

Just a quick reminder about all of the values that I just set. These values correspond to my logo and the way I want it to appear. Your values will all differ based on the logo and based on how you want your header to look. The way you will determine most of the values that you input will be through trial and error, which is how I determined the values for this header. For most of values that we adjusted, you will be able to see the result of changing the values right away. But for the values that have Resize next to them, you will need to preview the page in order to see the change.

And even though I skipped over some of the controls, you might still find them useful for you, so feel free to play around with them when creating your header.
