New Themes
Union-Local has added two new themes to its selection of Standard Themes available to anyone hosting their site through Union-Local. Each theme comes with multiple color styles to choose from and a wide variety of module positions. The new themes are called Avalon and Veer:

Content Slider
Up to now, the content rotator has only been available within module positions. Union-Local has now made the content rotator available as a “Content Block” for the main body of the page. It now also comes with the addition of a “Slider” mode for both module positions and content blocks – a new stylish way of presenting rotating content. Click here to see a sample of the new “Slider” mode.

Google Webmaster Tools
Google webmaster tools allows site admins to check indexing status and optimize visibility of their websites. Click here to sign up and learn more about the Google webmaster tools. Union-Local has made it easy to integrate Google webmaster tools with your site. Any site you add to the webmaster tools will need to be verified with Google before it can start analyzing your site. One of the options to choose for site verification is to add a meta tag to your site, which looks similar to his:

<meta name="google-site-verification" content="some_key_string">

Simply copy the key string provided to you by Google and place it in the “Verification Key” boxes located under the ADVANCED SETTINGS menu in your Admin Console. This will automatically place the meta tag on each individual page of your website and you can start using Google webmaster tools to analyze your website.
