3. New version of CMS Builder
New version of CMS Builder

We've just released CMS Builder 1.32 which includes many new features and improvements.

The main new feature in this release is a "My Account" menu (link from the top by Logoff). This menu lets users edit their username, password, email, and any other fields you choose (such as upload fields, wysiwyg fields, etc).

This is useful so users can modify their own email or password, but can also be used to allow the user to easily manage a profile or bio-page that can be displayed on the website.

For a full list of changes, visit the CMS Builder changelog or you upgrade to latest version by donation.

Please feel free to send us your feedback and questions! We're always eager to get your feature requests and bug reports, every single release is full of user requested fixes and features. Post in the forum or email our senior programmer at dave@interactivetools.com.
4. How to Private Label Your Software in 3 Easy Steps
New version of CMS Builder

One of the many benefits of CMS Buider and the Instant Website software is the ability for you to private label them, or in other words to sell them as your own products.

By rebranding the product, you can charge whatever makes sense for your project. You can sell CMS Builder at cost or mark up the value by as much as you want.

When the product is private labeled you'll never have to worry about being competitive with our prices. Your brand will make yourself the only point of origin when reselling our software.

Rebranding is easy, here's what you do:

  1. When logged in, go to the Admin > General Settings and click the Vendor link. From here add you company details.
  2. Enter a "Header Image URL" in Admin > General Settings to replace the default header graphic with your own. This could be your company logo, the logo for the client you're developing the product, or a new product logo you would like to use.
  3. Edit the ui.css file to change the colors and fonts in the admin to match your own brand and site.

Complete rebranding can be used to remove ANY mention of interactivetools.com, change the name and logo of the product, and change the admin programs colors to match your own.

As a final step, to increase your sales of CMS Builder we recommend adding this free marketing copy to your website.

If you have any questions please let us know. :)

5. Developer Resources
Developer Resources

Here are a couple of useful resources for web developers and designers. Email me YOUR favourite resource and I might feature it in a future newsletter.

Mastering CSS: Styling Design Elements
CSS isn't nearly as tricky as some people tend to believe. Below are fresh tips and techniques for creating and styling design elements with CSS..

The next two resources were provided by Riel Roussopoulos from iXLd Media Inc.

Balsamiq Mockups for Desktop
This tool is perfect for mocking up websites, user interfaces, or anything else. Riel uses it for all of his quotes, and is the best mockup tool he's used. It ports out your pencil sketch to a CSS grid ready to code.

Color Scheme Designer
This is an awesome visualization tool that has a "light / dark" site preview to help you / clients visualize color pallets. - note the XML and CSS export on this baby too is such a time saver.
