800x600 support & Manage Add-ons
Mood:  energetic
Topic: Angelfire Updates

So, while Angelfire is now optimized for 1024x768 and above monitor sizes, we do realize that there we still have some customers that do access our website on smaller monitors. 

To accomodate these customers that may still be using smaller screen sizes, we have released an update that will automatically resize the logged-in website to fit 800x600 monitors.

The reason I say "logged-in" is because this update will only affect those pages.  The logged out pages will continue to be optimized for 1024x768 browsers, but sections like web shell and the control panel will be optimized to work on both screen sizes.

Now, a quick 'but' to this update... It will not work in Internet Explorer 6-8 (but will work on ie9).  If you use one of these browsers and want to be able to view Angelfire in 800x600, you will have to download a standards compliant browser, which are all free:
FireFox - http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/
Safari - http://www.apple.com/safari/
Chrome - http://www.google.com/chrome
Opera - http://www.opera.com/

On another note entirely, the new Manage Add-ons section should now be accessible.  We were having some problems with it yesterday, but were able to find the fix this morning.  

We will continue to be making small updates and fixes as any other issues are brought to our attention from the change over to the new website. 

Largely, the response to this change has been well received and we want to take this moment to say thank you to all of our customers.  There's so much more to come!

Webshell Bug - working on it now

Since the launch of the new site there is a handful of users who are unable to get WebShell to load properly. Senior engineers are looking at the problem now and will publish an update as soon as they get to the bottom of it. No files are missing... there is a bug preventing WebShell from loading properly. We will update as soon as we have a fix out.

Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for using Angelfire.

Welcome to the new Angelfire
Mood:  energetic
Topic: Angelfire News
Our Designers and Software Engineers have been working hard behind the scenes for months to get this new version done. I’m sure you can tell by the new design that we’re determined to keep Angelfire a fun and easy place to build and host your website. With this release we’ve also become a lot more integrated with Social Media. We’d love you to join us on Facebook for news, tips, web-building advice, and a host of other topics interesting and useful to site builders. Or follow us on Twitter for condensed versions of same. We will post regularly here in the Angelfire Team Blog to keep you updated on our progress with various improvement projects and upgrades. You will also find us hanging out and answering questions in the Angelfire Club a lot more.

We’ve paid special attention to the redesign of the Angelfire Control Panel and we hope you’ll find it user-friendly and intuitive. You’ll find your quotas, traffic stats, and add-on options are all easily located. As the months go on we’ll be bringing you a host of new add-on products and services which will also be easily available right from within your Control Panel.

Angelfire has been around for almost 15 years and we’re greatly looking forward to the next 15. This ain’t your grandpappy’s Angelfire. This is Angelfire 2010!
