EverWeb 3.3 Beta: Faster Websites, Improved Widgets, Searching and so much more!
User: Paul-RAGESW 4 months ago
This may be my favourite EverWeb update yet! We've put so much hard work into improving the overall experience so that EverWeb is faster in almost every way.
Widgets have been improved so make changes to them in the Inspector will update them much faster then ever before. You can even select multiple widgets and update them all at the same time.
For example, you can now select multiple PayPal widgets and change the email address for all of them at once.
EverWeb's UI has been significantly improved so that you should almost never see the spinning beach ball anymore, especially with large websites.
My favourite addition though? We optimized EverWeb's website design framework to give you super fast loading websites. We've improved our Google Page Speed grade by 50% just by republishing the EverWeb website.
We've improved the responsive behaviour of popup windows and image gallery slide shows. Contact forms get new options including a Transparent style and the ability to adjust the height of the Text Area control.
We've add the ability to search for widgets, pages in your web page list and templates so you can easily find what you are looking for.
A full list of what's new can be found below.
If you want to try this beta version, please know that it has not been fully tested yet and we recommend you work on a backup of your EverWeb project.
