What's New At CoolHomepages

Update - March 2012:

User Boards and Pins: Create boards to pin the designs you like and help us curate content with CoolPinIt button

Similar to Pinterest, we now have features to let you create as many boards as you like, make them public or private (with sharing if you like), and if you want to help us curate content to pin on CHP, just click the Request Invite button to send us your request.

Content curators at CHP will get a CoolPinIt button they can use while browsing other sites to instantly grab and post fantastic design content to CHP.

Design Gallery: completely updated and overhauled - AGAIN!

1000% overhauled. We've cleaned out all the old designs and added tons of fantastic new designs. We've added comments widget for user chit-chat and feedback, along with ability to upload images within the comments widget. Sometimes it's helpful to grab a screen, mark it up with your comments, and upload that marked up screen with your comments. Another use for that would be to post suggested revisions to a design.

Design Store: seriously expanded

We now offer virtually anything you might need from web templates, to Flash templates, WordPress themes, Joomla, Mambo, After Effects Intros, logos, business cards, stationery, corporate ID packages, icon sets, phpBB themes, Silverlight templates, ZenCart themes, PowerPoint templates, Razor themes, and more. Our favorite is the new 'Ready To Use Turnkey Websites'... literally they are hosted, set up, and ready for you to take over: each comes with an easy-to-use website editor so you can change things quickly without website development skills.


Find A Designer and Design Portfolio Listings: for your project

Need a quote on a web project? Need a site? A logo? A mobile app? We have a pre-screened collection of developers who can help. Browse our list of portfolios - capable and accomplished web developers ready to help you answer questions about your project and send you a quote to boot.

If you're a designer/developer, make sure to list your services and upload your portfolio right away (you'll need a professional looking website with at least a handful of reasonable work examples) - for a limited time we're offering these portfolio listings for free.


Freebies: free templates, logos, illustrations, fonts, more

Why stop now? Lets offer a section for FREE design files! Free web design templates, images, interface elements, fonts, and more. Each month we'll be adding more files so stop by frequently to see what's new...and FREE.


Tips & Tricks Design Blog: scouring the web to bring you the best design tips

We're throwing everything at you here...but with a focus on cool tips, tricks, new and stuff that will help you do your job better, faster, and have more fun while you do it. 


Facebook Connect: automatic login to your CHP account

You've seen this feature on other sites, but if you have a CHP account and a Facebook account, you can connect them together so that if you're logged into Facebook, you'll be automatically logged into your CHP when you click the 'Login/Signup' link at CHP. It's snazzy and leaves you more time for other things.

Hi! the new site is real cool. There is something I would change and is that when I want to open a page to visit it I have to do it in two steps. This is a problem whem browsing lots of cool homepages cuz it takes a lot of extra time. Thanks!

I love the new site; great job! When I logged in, I noticed that the link to my CHP bookmarks is missing. Is that feature no longer a part of the new design??

Hi Rachael I'm really glad you asked. We have not brought that feature into the new site, everything was so outdated (that was our fault because we were 100% devoted to our Bigstock site) we didn't think people used the bookmarks really. Did you use them with any frequency? We can bring 'em back. Let me know your thoughts on that! Thank you.

I can do without them :>)I was working on a project and had a few sites that were bookmarked for inspiration when I had designer's block. No worries. Thanks for asking and keep up the good work!

Thanks for your input. We might bring 'em back anyway, you're not the first to ask. I'll let you know if we do that. Thanks again! Please lemme know if you want to see something here that isn't here yet.

I can't find a site I submitted a year ago. Did you remove it? If so, why didn't you send an email notifying it?

Hi Luis - what's the site URL? We prune sites on an ongoing basis, so this is not unusual. Let me know your site, I'll check.

Awesome site! especially love the design inspiration section. some suggestions
1. make it so that a user can view more images per page so that they don't have to look through 250+ pages
2. check into Pinterest, i found some great webdesigns that I wanted to pin and the Pinterest add-on couldn't find the website design as an image (since Pinterest includes a link back to your site me pinning that could be beneficial for linkbacks and sales)

Thanks for great feedback. We love Pinterest so we'll look at that issue, plus the FF 10.x refresh issue. THANKS. I don't want to give it all away, but soon you will see some cool big changes here that Pinterest fans should love!

I'm trying to submit a website to the inspiration gallery but the button to upload a screenshot is not working for me. I've tried to upload from 3 different machines but still no luck. Thanks.

In this web site the header main navigation is very bad. that is: you click on download a design navigation and mouse over the best of roundups nav link. it's drop down nav comes under the receptive div.
