Some users were complaining that uCoz has not been updated for a long time. And it is difficult to deny - we haven't announced about any major updates for a long time. But this is going to change - today we would like to announce about some updates. Even more coming soon smile

1. The most important update – gradual transfer of our sign-in system to oAuth.

Our global sign-in form used to look like this:

A user entered his username/password to log in to a website.

However, it was possible to create a fake form and the username/password could be stolen (that's why we recommended to use our uToolbar and login button). Launching of the new system means that it won't be possible to steal the data! The login form has not only become more secure, it is also more convenient now – with just one click.
The login form looks now like this:

When you click the button, a pop-up window appears:

The address bar contains — any other address will signal that the form is fake.

If you are logged in in your browser on one of websites that supports uID, you will just need to click the button to sign in to any other website with uID, the pop-up window won't appear (if you are registered on those websites).
E.g. if you are signed in to this forum, you will just need to click the button to sign in to your website (if it supports uID):

Note: If you have a custom login form and the new button does not fit your design in any way, you can switch back to the old form in Common Settings of your website:

In future we will add various button types, and not only "old/new".

If you want the login form to look like it was before the update, add the follwoing script in Control Panel -> Customize Design -> Bottom part of the website:

<script type="text/javascript">  
            $('#uidLogButton div:last a').click();  

How you can customize the button: replace $LOGIN_FORM$ by the following code:

<a href="#" onclick="new Image().src = ';joncounter004?r'+escape(document.referrer)+((typeof(screen)=='undefined')?'':';s'+screen.width+'*'+screen.height+'*'+(screen.colorDepth?screen.colorDepth:screen.pixelDepth))+';u'+escape(document.URL)+';'+Math.random();''+window.location.href,'unetLoginWnd','width=500,height=350,resizable=yes,titlebar=yes');return false;">Here you can paste any content, e.g. text or a an image</a>

You need to replace the part in red


with your website identifier. You can find it in Control Panel -> FTP details (FTP login).

2. The appearance of displayed photos (lightbox) has been updated in all modules, it is especially noticeable in Photo Albums:

3. And, finally, the jQuery version has been updated to 1.7.2.

If you are using scripts on your website that are not compatible with the version 1.7.2, you can switch back to one of the previous versions in your website Common Settings:

If you don't understand what this feature means – don't worry, you just don't need it and don't need to change anything. Everything will work as it worked before, and even better. All newly created websites will have 1.7.2 as the default version.
