PageBuildr is now fully compatible with the Safari web browser for both Mac and PC. We've updated our formatting box to a newer version which now works across all major browsers. This means you can add and edit content to your site, or comment on another site, using the formatting box rather than having to type up HTML code manually. We've also fixed a bug in the File Manager that prevented an image preview from showing on mouse over in Safari. This should work correctly now. As a Safari user myself, this update was a long time coming. I hope a couple people (roughly 4% of our visitors) find this useful.

We're pleased to announce two great new PageBuildr features, both months in the making.
Appearance Themes - You can now choose a professionally-designed theme for your website. Each theme will transform the look of your site with a simple click of the mouse. You can even grab the official PageBuildr template if you like.
Worried about having the same look as everyone else? Don't be. You can apply a theme to your site, and use the Appearance tools to customize the look however you like. Now it's easy for anyone to have a professional-looking site.
Template Layouts - Have you ever wanted to change the layout of your site? Maybe move the menu to the right side, or even horizontally on top? Now you can! Use our layout tools to position and resize the elements of your PageBuildr site to make it look exactly how you like.
Live Preview - You can still manually adjust the settings of your website appearance as you could before, but now you'll see what your changes will look like as you make them. Watch your background color change as you drag your mouse over a beautiful color gradient. See the text in your header update WHILE YOU TYPE IT. We call it Live Preview, and you're going to love it.
We've also added a bunch of new options to the Appearance area - add background images to your buttons and change the font, even set the transparency levels of your backgrounds.
Login to your Build area and check it out.

We've just launched a new website stats system for your PageBuildr website. This new system is 100% accurate, much more so than the system we'd been using previously.
In the future, we'll be able to provide very detailed stats on your visits and page views for your site - where they came from, how many visits/views you had per day/week/month, etc.
Unfortunately, we had to reset the existing statistics for your site in order to install the new system. These stats were very inflated versus reality and not an accurate representation of your site's traffic. We feel that "wiping the slate clean" will be worth it in the long run, and apologize for any annoyances that occur due to this change.
If you have any questions or concerns, please leave them in the comments below. Thanks.

We've just added another cool feature to PageBuildr - Music and Slideshow sharing!
Now you can take your Slideshow of your favorite photos and place it on another website. Below your Slideshow, you'll see a box labeled "Get HTML to Embed Slideshow" containing some code. Just click in this box, and click "Edit > Copy" in your browser.
Then, take this code to MySpace, Blogger, wherever you want, and paste the code. Your Slideshow will now display on your site.
If you're a musician with music on PageBuildr, you can do the same thing with your music player. Get your music out there for everyone to hear.
Give it a shot, it's easy!

We just completed a major overhaul of the Photo Gallery page type. Some of the new features include:
SlideShows - a new, flash based slide show is automatically created when you create a gallery. It pops up in a screen overlay and displays animated transitions as it moves through your photos.
PhotoFeeds - now your website visitors can subscribe to your photo gallery and stay up to date as you add more photos to your gallery. Clicking on the photos bring people to your comments on that photo.
PhotoFeeds can also be used with software that accepts subscribable feeds for later viewing offline, such as iPhoto.
Zoom - when you're viewing the large version of your photo in your gallery, it's often sized down to fit the page. If you click the photo the larger version will display in a screen overlay.
We hope you enjoy the new features! Leave your comments in the Feedback forum.

Hot on the heels of the Profile expansion comes Profile browsing!
Now, all the information entered in every profile on PageBuildr is searchable. If you the band Coldplay in your Music area, simply click "Coldplay" and find other PageBuildrs with similar tastes.
Plus, you can filter results based on your city, state or zip. Want to find other Coldplay fans in your city? Click Coldplay in your profile, then click "City" on the results page to filter out PageBuildrs from other cities.
So, go on then, fill out your profile and start browing.

One of the many features of PageBuildr is social networking - building an online community by making new friends, and reconnecting with old ones. In order to make PageBuildr's networking features both more fun and more useful, we've just relaunched the "Profile" area of PageBuildr.
Now you can specify much more information about yourself, including:

Do you have some photos you've been meaning to add to a gallery, but haven't because you're dreading how long it will take to upload each one individually?
After some great feedback from our annonymous survey, we've recently added multiple file uploads to the File Manager. Now you can upload up to 5 files at the same time, cutting your build time down significantly. Click here to check it out.
We want to make PageBuildr as easy to use as possible. If you have any suggestions for improvements, please take a moment to post them to our Suggestions forum.

Mashable, the who's who of Social Networking and User Submitted Content sites, has a small write up about PageBuildr.
"Pagebuildr claims to be a social networking service that lets you build your own website. It seems to have launched earlier in the year, although we’d never heard of it until it was mentioned at the Social Networking Awards. It’s a little bit like Webjam, but less convincing. Minus ten points for having a Flickr-like name."
Maybe not the most flattering description, but we'll take it!
