Call Us Button For Mobile Web Sites – EverWeb Widget

5 Comments EverWeb

One more widget I have added to my EverWeb widget portfolio. I saw this being requested a few times so I decided to create a widget that would make it a bit easier for user’s to add it to their website.

This widget allows you to add a Call Us button to your website (9 colors to choose from). You can also enter in your telephone number, so that users who are viewing your website on a mobile device can just click on the button and their phone will allow them to call the number. This button will not function when a user clicks on it from their desktop/laptop computers so be sure to add it to the mobile version of your website.

This widget can be downloaded free of charge. More buttons may be added in the future, so stay tuned.

EverWeb is a drag and drop website builder that allows you to easily build and maintain a website. No coding and no prior knowledge of web development is required.

Adding An Animated GIF In EverWeb

2 Comments EverWeb

If you are interested in adding an animated GIF to your site made in EverWeb, you can easily do so with this free animated GIF widget.

All you need to do is choose the GIF from your hard drive. You can also specify the size of your animated GIF (note: the default size will be 450×450 pixels.) There is also a text field to add some alternative text if you’d like.

Remember to quit EverWeb before launching the widget. When you launch the widget, you will receive a message saying ‘Your widget has been installed’. You can then launch your website project and look at the widgets tab and see the newly installed widget.

Justified Text In EverWeb – Free Widget

10 Comments EverWeb

I have just released a brand new widget for the new iWeb replacement application called EverWeb. This widget will allow you to easily add justified text to your website. Feel free to download and use this justified text widget absolutely free.

If this is your first time downloading a widget, all you need to know is that you should quit EverWeb, double click on the widget (which is a .ewwdgt file) and the widget will automatically install (you will see a ‘Your widget has been installed’ message). You can then launch your website project and look at the widgets tab and see the newly installed widget.

IMPORTANT NOTE: For this widget to function properly, you will need EverWeb 1.4 or higher.

The folks at EverWeb will be making a video tutorial on using this widget, but until then, what you need to know is that there are 3 paragraphs that you can add text to. If you need less than 3 paragraphs, you only need to use as many as you want. If you need more, then you should drag and drop the Justified Text widget onto your page again, and just make the first paragraph on that widget the 4th paragraph in total. To make any changes to the text, simply open up the Text window and make your formatting changes just as if you would do with a regular text box in EverWeb.

I hope you enjoy the widget. If you have any problems, please let me know. More widgets will be released in the next week or two so stay tuned.

For those who do not know, EverWeb is an easy to use desktop application that allows you to make your own website. No coding knowledge or previous website building experience is required. You can download and try out EverWeb for free.

iWeb Replacement Is Called EverWeb

13 Comments iWeb 101

The iWeb replacement app that has been buzzing in the iWeb community the last month or so will be called EverWeb. This is according to an email sent out by the developers of the iWeb replacement.

The email also let us know that EverWeb will be shown at MacWorld 2013, so if you will be in the bay area at the end of January, you can get a firsthand look at EverWeb.

The email also gave the Facebook page for EverWeb, where users can interact with one another and ask any questions they may have about EverWeb.

I was able to speak with the developers and here is my insider knowledge on EverWeb:

1) It is very similar to iWeb in the sense that it is pure drag and drop style website building.

2) iWeb lacked search engine optimization features. EverWeb will have these features built in.

3) There will be more widgets to work with.

4) There will be better, more modern templates.

5) You can create multiple sites easily.

All of this is really exciting news! I can’t wait until we get to try EverWeb out. In the meantime, head on over to the EverWeb Facebook page to learn more.
