Tripod Updates for June 15, 2010
Topic: General Tripod News
Today we released four new styles for the Webon Site Builder. "Burst," "Butterfly Sunrise," "Cake Surprise," and "Traversing the Moon" are now available for you to try out and build some excellent websites with them!
A re-release of the style "Americana" was put out a few days ago. The re-release fixed some reported issues with the top navigation bar. If you are experiencing any issues with your Webon style, be sure to check and see if a new version of your selected style has been released. We are currently working on a way to do this automatically for you. However, until that functionality is completed, you can see if you have an up-to-date style by hovering over its thumbnail, in the style tab, and checking out the "date created." If it's a more recent date than when you originally applied the style, then a new version had been released. We will also be sure to make announcements whenever we update our styles.
In other Tripod news, we have listened to all of your comments about our recent Control Panel changes, and we taking them into consideration as we continue to update Tripod and make it easier to use. In our most recent update we have moved your Account Information back to the top of the Control Panel. You can now view it in it's limited state, or by clicking the "More Account Information" link, you can see more detailed information. (You can also still go to the 'My Account' link and view your information there.) We plan to expand this section in the future to make it even more useful for you.
Also on the Control Panel, we have made the default view for Domains & E-Mail, hidden. By just clicking on the "Show Domains & E-Mail" link, that section will expand out to show you all the information that was there previously. We did this so you only have to view that information if you actually need to manage your domains or e-mail, as opposed to it constantly taking up space and pushing the links to your websites/blogs/photo albums further down the page.
As James mentioned in his previous post, we have a text tool update for Webon that is close to being released, and we're also tightening the screws all around Webon & Tripod in general. Expect more updates in the coming days/weeks/months. We're excited about what we're working on, and we hope you are too.
Thanks for using Tripod!
