A red apple
Everybody loves Lightbox! Even if you don't know what that is, you've likely used it before.

U7 Site Manager Menu now has simpler terminology

Wednesday, December 11, 2013 - 1:32am by jayson.peltzer
Simpler U7 Site Manager Menu for website admins
Our Site Manager Menu is quite unique in the website service industry. Most web designers use a content management system and provide their clients with access to the complicated administrative control panel. Yeah, it already sounds too complicated! At U7, we have made ease-of-use a priority despite how much powerful functionality we provide to you. In that spirit, we have re-worded a few items in the Site Manager Menu in an effort to simplify the terminology and make it more intuitive. Here's the before and after showing you the items that have been renamed. All other items remain the same. This change may not affect our existing clients much, but it will certainly be easier for new clients and new users to understand. read more »

U7 Paid Products now allows you control over price and tax descriptor

Thursday, December 5, 2013 - 9:31am by jayson.peltzer
We just improved the U7 Paid Products add-on and rolled out an upgrade to those who have it on their site! This latest upgrade now gives you the ability to choose whether to list the price or not. Depending on the payment service you are using, some buttons display the price themselves, so this new ability will allow you to avoid having the price listed twice as you can choose on a per product basis. You can also do the same with your tax descriptor. You can now define your own tax descriptor. Some people prefer to have the price listed as "+ tax", others prefer "+ HST", and others prefer not to display this type of info at all. read more »

What is U7 Solutions?

Tuesday, March 26, 2013 - 8:15am by jayson.peltzer
The U7 Solutions business model
The name U7 stems from our initial tagline "the world wide web and you" that we broke down as www + you, then double-u, double-u, double-u and u. We added the u's up and got U7 :) Cheezy perhaps, but it serves as a constant reminder to us that our business is about you, the client, and how important your experience on the web is to your business success. We believe there is a right way to build a website where: read more »
