While you wait for the new "mobile-friendly" Site Builder design to launch in early April, you can enjoy two new features to the design tool right now!
Custom Header Photos
Our now departed designer, Alex, did a great job curating photos for the header library. Each photo he found or received was color-corrected, resized, and generally buffed to a high shine. Now that he is no longer in this role, we've decided to open up the design tool to allow users to upload header photos. Here's how it works:

While mobile applications (iPhone, etc) are appealing in many ways, there are also many downsides. In ANR we've taken a different approach to making our content accessible to a mobile audience- responsive web design.
If you are interested in our mobile strategy, or if you just want to make your site available on small mobile devices, take a look at this video.
After serving the division for five years, Alex Zangeneh-Azam is leaving the Web Action Team. Alex has had his hand in the design of just about every web application created or refreshed since he arrived. He's also been our main customer service support person for Site Builder, Surveys, Blogs, Collaborative Tools and most recently, Adobe Connect.
Alex's cool temperament has earned him a great deal of praise over the years, and his departure will be felt by all of those he has assisted.
If you'd like to send Alex a note, his last day will be February 22, 2013. After that, he will be moving to his new PROGRAMMING position at UC Davis. After stewing in the web cave for the past five years, Alex has finally morphed...

We are pleased to announce a new Site Builder feature as well as the resurrection of an old broken asset!
First, we've added the option in Site Information and Appearance to have top navigation stick to the left OR the right!
Just toggle "Right" and your top navigation, assuming you're using top navigation, will float right.
One thing to consider if you use the right aligned top navigation, your dropdown menus, if you have them, may extend off of the page. It's a design trainwreck, but one that we could no avoid at this time because of the flexibility built into Site Builder. When we devise a new design, we will take this situation into consideration.
