Over the Christmas period, between impressive bouts of festive gluttony, our team has been hard at work to bring you tools that will really help to enhance your web presence. 

On the 8th of January, we are releasing a number of changes to the UENI platform, but this is just the beginning of an entirely new era of UENI – one that will better serve you, allowing you to better penetrate your market.  

Throughout 2020, we will continue to listen to your feedback and give you more of the tools you want. But additionally, we aim to innovate, bringing the future to your doorstep so you can outmaneuver the competition, getting more leads and more customers.

It’s an exciting period and we’re glad we get to share it with you. Without further ado, let’s take a look at what’s new to UENI!


Website Editor 2.0

A complete overhaul of our old Editor, Editor 2.0 provides a considerably better user experience and a far more powerful platform. 

Using a What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get (WYSIWYG) interface allows you to edit in real-time and see the changes as you make them. 

Another massive change the new editor brings is a mobile-native view so you can edit your website using solely your phone, without losing functionality. 


The Classic Theme

Welcoming the Classic theme – exclusive to those on the Basic or Plus plan. 

Minimalist and elegant, the Classis theme allows you more choice and therefore more flexibility in how your website looks. 

It comes with 5 color schemes.


Embeddable Videos

Many of you asked for it, so here it is! The ability to add videos straight to your UENI website. Videos can really amplify your message and distinguish you from the competition so be sure to experiment with them. 

Image Tools

No longer do you have to edit your images offline. With the new image tools, you can now crop and/or rotate images straight from the UENI editor.

The Favicon Uploader

You now have the ability to upload a favicon to your website. A favicon is a little icon next to the title tab that indicates what site the tab belongs to. 

Uploading a favicon is a simple but important step for any website to take, reducing bounce rates, increasing trust, and increasing brand awareness.

Just Around the Corner


Upgraded Booking Experience


The enhanced booking experience will make it easier for your customers to book your services.

Additional Points of Contact

Some customers want to email, others want to call, others still would rather WhatsApp (how new-age!) You’ll soon be able to cover all your bases, so customers can contact you as they wish.

To close, we’re doubling our efforts this year so we can bring you an even better UENI. The upcoming changes will give you an unmatched return on your efforts to grow online. We couldn’t have done it without all you.

Stay tuned for future updates!

    Any chance of a social media or forum base ever being included as part of this wonderful system anytime soon along with the ability to have a website and possibly a sales area encapsulated all in one as I could put this to great use as I am sure many others could likewise

      Hi Dougie! Thanks for your messages and your feedback. Hope you had an awesome NYs. We actually have an e-commerce product you can check out. It is significantly more powerful than the standard UENI website and allows you to sell hundreds of products across a number of categories. You can also have a blog, and whatever other pages you want – all built for you by us. This integrates with FB shop and you can embed YT videos and an Instagram feed too. That’s the closest thing we have to a community/forum based solution. I don’t imagine that is something we will be offering in the near future – I doubt many of our customers would say a forum would change the game for their businesses (not to say it wouldn’t be incredibly useful for some businesses, but attempting to be all things for all people isn’t on the near future roadmap). But never say never!

    Possibly in a sort of Facebook type of way to allow a community of likeminded individuals to be built up to amazing social communities able to socially interact as well as the ability to sell their builds and talk about, seek advice or equally offer advice to their peers just a thought that may take your system further down the road and would certainly supply what I require 😎 if anyone can help please contact me at 21stCenturyDollshouses@mail.com many thanks keep up the good work guys it’s appreciated and a very happy New Year to one and all …..

  3. Will there be a function to add a new section. I want to add an events section ro my website but can’t see the functionality to do this.

    • Avatar Yasin Mammeri says:

      Hi there! You can change the name of any section and make it your own. But of course, some sections are more flexible than others. Maybe the about us section could become the events section. Or the services section could have a name that covers both events and services. In the future, we will definitely make it possible for you to add and edit your own sections – how exactly that will look and feel is hard to say this early on, but stay tuned as we continue to develop the UENI platform for you!

    I really love the embedded video addition. Wish it is available to the free version.

      Hi Jude! Glad you love it 🙂 Well, it will be waiting for you on the Basic or Plus plan if you ever decide to test one of them out. Let me know if you need any help getting setup. Happy 2020i

    Ueni,

    Any updates to being able to change fonts or use regular timing? I.e 9am-9pm? Thanks!

    • Avatar Yasin Mammeri says:

      Hi there Chante! Yes the ability to change fonts is on the product roadmap – I can’t give an exact date right now, but will update here and via email so you’ll know when it’s coming 🙂 And you can now use regular timing. Just head to your opening hours section and toggle on/off the ‘use 24-hours format’ button. Hope this helps!
