New website content explorer

It’s been a year since the last major update to doomby’s website builder, and the team has been hard at work adding new features ever since. Our latest and greatest is the new content explorer, designed to make it simpler to manage your site pages.

The new content explorer is now online in your site manager, in the Pages add-on (head to the Pages > Manage pages menu to start taking advantage of it today).

Quickfire e-commerce: build on online store fast with easy product imports

Import products easily via a spreadsheetIf you've chosen to use the free version of doomby's e-commerce pack to make an online store, then you'll know how easy it is to set up your products with just a few clicks. On the other hand, if you've chosen to subscribe to the full e-commerce pack and get unlimited products for your online shop, then you may find it a lot easier to use a spreadsheet like Excel or Numbers to quickly add information for a large number of products in one go. Or if you are transferring your store from another e-commerce platform, perhaps you already have an existing online store catalog just waiting to be imported.

Rest easy – you can now import and export products in just a couple of clicks. It's just one of the ways your favorite free website builder has made it even easier to make a website, quick and easy!

New free website maker. More magic and features. With extra pretty.

Welcome to doomby 3.6Monday was a pretty big day at the office. First there were the usual "how was your weekend" and a whole lot of "what, you still don't have an iPhone 4?" to get through. After that, there was the new free website maker (your site manager) to get out the door, or rather up and online. It took the better part of the day (it was heavy) but we finally sent it on it's way, and the consensus at the office is unanimous: we like it ... which isn't that surprising.

However, if the feedback we've received over the last couple of days is anything to go by, apparently so do you, our member community of beginner webmasters and experienced web designers alike. Well, we're just tickled pink to hear it, and we're all feeling pretty chuffed.
