Several new updates with the eCoach blogging tool:
Add categories to posts

Since itís almost Fall, Barbara took the picture in the banner when she was up at Tahoe and gave to Pearl to make a new Fall template:
To see the new templates, edit one of your Universal builders and go to Customize to Templates and scroll to the bottom rows.
