5/15/2013 - Background Music Fixed in Flash

Adobe has fixed the streaming audio bug in their current release - 11.7.700.202. Unfortunately, they did not bump the revision number (700) which means there is no way for us to test to see if a user has version 202 installed, or the previously bugged version. Fortunately, Flash is set to automatically update for the vast majority of users so most people will now have the updated version. We are disabling our temporary workaround and restoring the tour back to it's previous engine. If you have any comments or suggestions, please let us know by sending an email to support@ubuildtours.com.

4/25/2013 - Background Music problems

With Adobe's release of their latest flash player, our premium tour has been experiencing a problem where the background music stops playing after the third image in the tour is displayed. Unfortunately, we have not found a solution to the problem and it appears to be a bug on Adobe's side. We have developed a workaround that plays the background music in a HTML 5 audio element outside of flash. We have deployed the workaround and it will work with all current version browsers. We are still using the old flash music for any viewers who have not updated to the flawed flash player. We are monitoring the releases from Adobe and if this problem is corrected in a future release, we will return to the our previous tour engine at that time. If you have any comments or suggestions, please let us know by sending an email to support@ubuildtours.com.

1/28/2013 - Statistics Changes

We made some minor tweaks to our statistics this evening. We filtered out many foreign domains that are most likely not credible tour views. In addition, we limited the number of referring domains displayed to the top 35 to keep the list readable. If you have any comments or suggestions, please let us know by sending an email to support@ubuildtours.com.

7/26/2012 - Broker Account Changes

We've made a change to the broker account type this morning. You now have the option to select master broker template on the My Profile > Templates page for each agent in your broker account. This allows you to customize, select, and/or change all of the agent templates in your broker account from one profile (the broker account profile). By selecting this option for each agent, any time the broker account is updated - the change affects all agents with this option selected. The profile attributes inherited from the master broker account are the banner graphics, banner customizations, and page colors.

04/4/2012 - Mobile Tour Released

We're glad to finally release our HTML 5 tour designed to work on all mobile touch devices. This includes iPhones, iPads, iPod Touches, Android Phones and Tablets, Windows Phone, BlackBerry phones and tablets, and Palm WebOS phones and tablets. These tours will display by default when a user browses to your normal tour links from one of these devices. Pano2VR panoramas, QuickTime VR panoramas, and Flash Video files are not displayed on our mobile tour. We will be working to provide an option to upload HTML 5 compatible versions of these files to be displayed in our mobile tour. For those of you who use these file types and choose to order a YouTube conversion of your tour, mobile users will be redirected to your YouTube tour as an alternative.

12/29/2011 - Minor Update

Added the ability to put a footer below the tour defined in the user profile. Page and Footer color can now be set for both tours in the Customization page of My Profile.

8/30/2011 - Site Enhancements

Our new site enhancements include:
  • New Upload Control
    • Order your images directly within the upload control, before uploading.
    • Rotate your images before uploading. Full 360 degree rotation in increments of 90 degrees.
    • Crop your images before uploading.
    • Set your titles and descriptions (left blank, the filename is still used for the title).

  • Enhanced server side image processing = better quality images.
  • Fixed the rotation bug with certain image incompatibilities with our previous processor
  • Faster processing times for images.
