1. CMS Builder Demo Licenses for $49.99
CMS Builder Demo Licenses for $49.99 You can now purchase a demo license of CMS Builder for only $49.99.

Demo licenses are a great way to get started with CMS Builder. For a small upfront cost you can use your demo license to learn the ins and outs of CMS Builder, test features, and demonstrate the benefits of the software to your clients so you can close more sales.

The rules are simple. Demo licenses are limited to one per customer, are not for resale, and are for providing demos on your site only. Also, each demo license includes our free support and is backed by our 90-day money back guarantee.

If in the past you bought a license at full price for use as a demo, you can now purchase a demo license instead and use your extra regular license for a client website.

To get started, simply visit our order page, place an order for a single license of CMS Builder, and enter CMSDEMOCOPY into the Promo Code field.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact sales@interactivetools.com or call toll free at 1-800-752-0455.
2. Introducing 12 Month Payment Plans
Introducing 12 Month Payment Plans Recently we introduced new payment plans where you can purchase any of our products for three or six equal monthly payments. We've noticed a lot of you have jumped at the opportunity to spread out your purchase over multiple payments and so to provide you with even more options we're now introducing a new twelve month payment plan. For example, with a twelve month payment plan you can purchase a license of CMS Builder for only twelve monthly payments of $16.33.

Payment plan prices for 3, 6, and 12 months are listed below:
CMS Builder 3 payments of $51.31 6 payments of $27.99 12 payments of $16.33 Order
Article Manager 3 payments of $73.31 6 payments of $39.99 12 payments of $23.33 Order
Listings Manager 3 payments of $73.32 6 payments of $39.99 12 payments of $23.33 Order


Payment plans are a great way to minimize your up-front costs, such as when you've only received an initial deposit. If you're a web developer, your price sensitive clients can get up-and-running with our products at a minimum budget.

To get started with a payment plan, simply visit our order page. As always, you can refund at any time within the first 90 days.

3. Google Announces New Web Browser: Google Chrome
Google Announces New Web Browser: Google Chrome Google recently launched a new open source web browser called Google Chrome.

Google's main reason for a new browser is to create something that "can add value for users and, at the same time, help drive innovation on the web." Apparently, the new browser is "streamlined and simple" and "clean and fast". In fact, some of us in the office are already using it as our default browser!

One of the coolest things about the launch is how the browers' features were introduced in comic book form. Some of the most impressive features are:

  • New JavaScript engine called V8 for faster performance
  • "Special tabs" above the window, not below the address bar
  • the ability to run each tab as a separate process, so if a site or action crashes one tab, the entire browser won't crash
  • Address bar auto-completion
  • Opera-like "Speed Dial" with thumbnails of your most visited 9 websites
  • Web apps can be launched in their own window without addressbar/toolbar

The browser will initially be offered for Windows only, but Mac and Linux versions are on the way.

To get started with Google Chrome beta you can visit the Google Chrome website at http://www.google.com/chrome/.

4. Internet Exploer 8 Beta 2 Released
Internet Exploer 8 Beta 2 Released If you're running Internet Explorer 8 Beta 1, you can now upgrade to Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2. While Beta 1 was primarily targeted at developers, Internet Explorer 8 beta 2 is a fully featured release targeted at regular web users.

Internet Explorer 8 already has several new features that IE 7 didn't, such as InPrivate Browsing which keeps IE8 from adding sites you visited to your browsing history, a Compatability View button which allows you to view websites that were designed for older browsers, and more.

For a full list of features and to download IE 8 Beta 2 please visit the Internet Explorer home page.

5. Official Support For PHP 4 Ends
Official Support For PHP 4 Ends PHP 4 has finally reached the end of its official life. With the release of PHP 4.4.9, official support has ended, with the final security patch released on August 8th.

The good news is this gives web hosts who haven't already updated to PHP 5 one more reason to do so. In fact, PHP 5 has now been available for a few years (already 5.2.6) and if you are with a web host that hasn't upgraded you'll want to request that they do. With no support or future security fixes, the recommendation is for web hosts to move to the PHP 5 platform.

If you're a user of CMS Builder and your host has decided to stick with PHP 4 there's no need to worry. CMS Builder will continue to support PHP 4 until the majority of the hosts switch to 5. So even if your host is slow to switch you're still covered.

If you're a PHP 4 developer who hasn't begun working with PHP 5 yet, you'll likely find that converting a well designed application to PHP 5 requires only fairly minimal tinkering to function with the new version.

You can read more about this in the slashdot post found here.

Top 10 CSS Table Designs
Tables have got to be one of the most difficult objects to style in the Web, thanks to the cryptic markup, the amount of detail we have to take care of, and lack of browser compatibility. A lot of time could be wasted on a single table although it's just a simple one. This is where this article comes in handy. It will show you ten most easily implemented CSS table designs so you can style your tables in a zap!
