In February, a new eshop administration interface was developed, which resulted in improved order management and the new options for tracking, free shipping and automatic stock check.
The first set of new templates appeared in March. Eight more sets of templates were made available in 2011 amounting to 100 different looks for websites, and eshops got 4 new sets adding up to almost 40 new looks altogether!
In April, Webnode noticed an increase in social awareness related to the Fukushima incident globally, the catastrophe matched with a viral spread over social networks.
May was the start of further language versions of Webnode, the first being French followed by Italian, Hungarian, Russian, Japanese and Dutch, now serving a total of 17 languages.
