Easy way to display your menu next to your logo on the header

Having your website menu display to the right of your logo is becoming the go-to design choice more and more, so we decided to add this setup as a header template option. Get this 1-click header logo/menu setup with our newest UltimateWB software upgrade 6.7 – for all versions!

On the Templates generator page, choose between “Run Header with Menu Below” and “Run Header with Menu to Right of Logo”

Here is an example of the website navigation menu below the header:

And here the menu is to the right of the logo:

When to display your navigation menu next to your logo?

If you don’t have many items in your menu, and you don’t have content you want to display next to your logo, the menu works great there. It fits, and it makes great use of the empty space next your logo.

When to display your navigation menu below your header?

On the other hand, if you have lots of pages in your menu, it needs a lot more space and you don’t want it to feel like it’s squished to fit. Putting your menu under the header in that case would make it more user friendly. You don’t want to try to fit all your pages under only a handful of top level links if it doesn’t make sense.

How the menu displays with the responsive website:

The header is responsive in a responsive website, so the menu displays as an expandable button, and the logo and header content centered automatically when the header templates are used.

All UltimateWB website builder software versions come with the 1-click Responsive template, and you can also configure various aspects of the built-in Responsive app via your website admin panel styles manager.

Hope you enjoy it! We welcome your feedback!

How to remove WordPress blog dates, authors in all or certain categories –

We recently released an update to the integrated WordPress blog (New Year and New Ultimate Web Builder Software Upgrade 6.4) to make it easier to to not show blog dates and authors for posts in all or certain categories. No third-party plugin install required!

Step 1) Switch your WordPress theme: Activate the “uwb2” theme.

Login to your WordPress admin panel, and navigate to Appearance > Themes.

The available WordPress themes are displayed. Select the “uwb2” theme. If you do not find it here, it means that you have not uploaded the new theme to your blogs folder. After downloading the new UltimateWB Full upgrade files, it will be under the “blog_sample” folder > wp-content > themes > uwb2.

And mouse over the uwb2 theme to click on the “Activate” button:

You will get a confirmation message when activated:

Step 2) File editing if you need further customization…

If you want to not show the post date / author for all posts outside of the “Announcements” category, you’re done! If you want to customize this further, read on for the instructions…

Login to your web hosting account (cPanel if you’re hosting with UltimateWB). Double-click on the File Manager icon to open it, and navigate to your blog folder / wp-content / themes / uwb2.

Three WordPress files are involved in the display of the post dates and authors:

wp-content/themes/uwb2/loop.php
wp-content/themes/uwb2/loop-single.php
wp-content/themes/uwb2/loop-attachment.php

You can find the section in each of these page where the clause has been added to omit the date/author of the post if it’s in the Announcements category by searching (CTRL-f) for the following term:

if (in_category(‘Announcements’

What this phrase means is that if the post is in the Announcements category, continue with the rest of this code block. So, if you would like to add more categories that would make the statement true, you can add them in this clause, i.e.:

if (in_category(‘Announcements’,’Category 2′,’Category 3′

The final coding for this section woul look something like:

if (in_category(‘Announcements’,’Category 2′,’Category 3′))

vs

if (in_category(‘Announcements’))

There are 2 instances of this on the loop.php file, and one instance in the loop-single.php file, and the loop-attachment.php file.

You can check out this customization in action:

Enjoy customizing!

Upgraded User Interface (UI) with Ultimate Web Builder software upgrade 6.5

This website builder update is for all software versions of Ultimate Web Builder: UltimateWB Full, Lite, Essentials+, PromoU, and Promo.

CMS Photos App Upgrade (All Versions)

We have modified the user interface for adding photos. You can now also add/manage photos directly from the Add/Edit Page, besides the Admin Panel Photos section. Plus, you can choose to “assign” photos to a specific page for quick access to the photo on that specific page, or leave it unassigned to any pages so that the photo is available for quick access on all the add/edit pages.

CMS Photo Gallery & Slideshows App Upgrade: UWB Full & UWB Lite

It’s even easier now to create a photo category to be associated with a page on the Add/Edit Page – just checkmark the box for “Create new Photo Category for page” next to the Content Page Editor Box and click the button at the bottom of the page to add the page/save the page updates.

And it’s also easier to go to the photo category/categories of a page, to upload photos for your photo gallery/slideshow. There is now a Photo Categories link/count added to the Edit Page to easily view/manage Photo Categories associated with a page.

And we have added a List Photos tab to the Edit Photo Category page for easy access to photos associated with a photo category (besides accessing from the Photos page). 

CMS E-Commerce Items App Upgrade: UWB Full

We didn’t leave out the E-commerce App and its Photos UI. You can now also add/manage item photos directly from the Add/Edit Item page, besides the Admin Panel Photos section.

And we have made it easier to find your items on your admin panel List Items page with a Search by Item Name feature.

UltimateWB Website Updates, User Manual & Video Tutorials…

We are in the process of updating the user manual topics and adding more topics and video tutorials. If you would like a certain topic covered sooner, just contact us!

We have updated the Compare Ultimate Web Builder Promo, PromoU, Essentials+, Lite, and Full comparison chart to help you choose the right website builder for you. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions!

Play around with the new upgrade on the demos!

New Year and New Ultimate Web Builder Software Upgrade 6.4

UltimateWB website builder software upgrade 6.4 has been released for all versions: Full, Lite, Essentials+, PromoU, and Promo. New features have been added and an even more user friendly CMS to make the web development process a lot faster, easier, and enjoyable.

CMS Upgrade

Save & manage page backups quick & easy

You can now automatically save your Page Previous Versions and Edit/Revert to saved previous sections. This feature is automatically turned on by default, but you can turn it off from the Configure Site > Basic Setup page, and delete/manage the backups. This method is a lot faster and easier than the previous method you might have used to accomplish this, by creating duplicate pages and saving backups with an “inactive” setting. Plus, no more clutter on your List Pages section with backups of pages You can access previous versions of pages from the List Pages > Edit Page – on the top of the page there is a link that you just click to get the list of saved previous versions. Then, just click on the Edit button to edit/restore the saved page. You can also choose to undo a previous change with one click on the top of the Edit Page.

Admin Panel session logout redirect upgrade

No more losing any pending posts because of an admin login session timeout. You can just login again, and the pending content will get posted as planned. Also, if you are logged out and visit an admin page, you get redirected to the login page, and then back to your previous page after successfully logging in.

SEO Upgrade

You can now choose whether or not you want to show your page meta keywords in the coding. Major search engines like Google or Yahoo no longer use meta keywords in their search engine ranking, so some argue that revealing this information is sharing too much with your competition. Now you have he choice to decide with an easy on/off toggle, rather than having to delete the target keywords info from each page.

More User Friendly with a Show/Hide Password Option Added

Sometimes you may want to check out what password you typed in the textbox – this upgrade gives you the option to offer this feature to your website members (UltimateWB Full social networking app), as well as to yourself in your admin panel (all UltimateWB software versions). For the latter, the setting to have this feature is off by default for security reasons, but you can turn it on from the Configure Site > Basic Setup page. And for the social networking app, it is on by default, to be more user friendly for your members. You can update this from the Configure Site > Social Networking configurations page. Choose from different options on how to display the show/hide password option: an icon in the password textbox or beside the textbox, or a Show Password checkbox under the password textbox. You can also customize the icon, as well as the “Show Password” text, of course.

Question & Answer CAPTCHA for the Forums

The Question & Answer pair CAPTCHA was a big hit and homerun for the contact form and forms builder app, in the UltimateWB 6.1 upgrade. We have now extended it to the built-in forums app in UltimateWB Full, as another CAPTCHA option.

More WordPress Blog Integration Customization

The UltimateWB Full WordPress blog integration now comes with another theme option that you can use to not show blog dates and authors for posts in all or certain categories. More info on customizing this will be provided soon, stay tuned or email us!
