TOWeb's exceptional anniversary offer
We celebrate this summer the 15th anniversary of our company Lauyan Software, an entrepreneurial adventure started with TOWeb version 1.00 on August 6, 2005.
For this event, we will be making flash sales of our TOWeb and PageXL products throughout this summer. The first one, starting this Wednesday for 48 hours, is exceptional since it is a 50% discount on all editions of TOWeb V8, less than a year old. This offer expires Friday, July 3 at midnight (Paris time, France, GMT+1). To take advantage of it, use the coupon code TOWEB15YEARS or the purchase buttons below.
Compatibility with Mac OSX Catalina
Both version 8 and version 7 of TOWeb can now be used under Mac OS X version 10.15 (Catalina). If you are using TOWeb V8 you need to download and reinstall again version 8.10. If you are using TOWeb V7 you will need to download and reinstall version 7.24. As for TOWeb V5 and V6, these former versions remain only compatible with OSX 10.14 (Mojave) and earlier but are not compatible with Catalina.
Lauyan.com service stopped for V2 to V4 e-Commerce sites
The "Lauyan.com email notification service" which can be used in the old versions V2, V3 and V4 of TOWeb will be definitively stopped within a few weeks. If you were still using this option in TOWeb V2-V4 for your e-Commerce website, you will need to select instead the "form to mail i-service" option, indicated as recommended in the "Options > e-Commerce > Submitted orders configuration" screen, before to publish your site.
End of the exceptional interruption
Due to a denial-of-service attack that occurred Saturday late afternoon, May 23, 2020 our lauyan.com server was no longer reachable, as well as our email server. None of our data could be accessed or damaged by this attack and everything is now back to normal since this Monday. As for PageXL and its services completely independent, it has not been impacted, your sites have always remained online. We are sorry for this incident and its exceptional duration.

A Falling Hearths effect for Valentine's Day
Valentine's Day (February 14th) is approaching and you want to beautify your website for that event? Well, if you previously used and appreciated the snow effect introduced by TOWeb version 8.06 then you will probably want to give a try to the new falling hearth animation over the content of your pages !
Which PHP version to choose for your site
Version 5 of PHP is no longer maintained since January 1, 2019 which means it has not been updated for more than a year now. Knowing that security flaws are regularly discovered in old versions of PHP, for more security, durability and not leaving your site obsolete or vulnerable, we recommend to use a recent version of PHP (7.2 or 7.3). Regarding the i-services scripts integrated in TOWeb, we also recommend PHP 7 but only with TOWeb V8. If you use an old version of TOWeb, then you will have to keep and stay with your current version of PHP in order for your website to continue working properly.
Version 8.07 is released
This update brings improvements to the CSS editor for multilingual websites as well as several fixes in particular regarding the social buttons, the display of the cookie consent banner and the management of the <head> section of the catalogue products.
Best wishes for 2020
We hope you discovered and enjoyed all the new features of TOWeb V8 coming with more possibilities for your websites still remaining perfectly viewable by all your visitors, whether they use smartphones, tablets or computers.
Whatever the version of TOWeb you use, the one of yesterday, today or tomorrow, we hope that our software will continue to bring you full satisfaction for all your 2020 web projects.
