If the site goes down, you won't see an update using "Show real-time" button. But you will still have a screenshot and the URL link to the source page. And if you Copy & Paste the text to Description field when saving the grab, it will never go away.
Placing grabs on top of other webpages can be done by simply dragging the selected content from the Slidebar to the desired location on the webpage. After placing a grab, it will load to show the updated content. Drag by its Title to move your grab to any location on the webpage. use the options to change the size and pin it to the page.

Most of websites permit real-time content grabbing. But some of them don’t. In that case you will only see a screenshot of a grabbed area in your web app.
Grab cannot be retrieved at the same page where it was grabbed.
You can place more than one grab on a same page.
Place is very useful when using a big size monitor
Set to “All of Web” to see the grab on all surfed pages
If you have this problem when grabbing a long content from a page, instead of Click - Drag - Release, use Click - Release -- Select the area - Click - Release to lock the selection. (No dragging the mouse!!!). Dragging makes the Blue selection effect.
Generally, Wepware can capture anything from web pages. But sometimes websites' structure doesn't let Wepware retrieve real-time content. In those cases it either won't load or won't display properly. However, our team does its best to make it possible for you to grab as freely as you can.
Here are the tips for grabbing real-time content that will display properly.
You can save Youtube videos by clicking the Hand icon on the Top-Left of the video. The videos will be saved in your Youtube folder.
Moreover, you can search and save Youtube videos from Wepware slidebar. Click Folder button and change the search mode to Youtube. Search the video by keyword and click on your selection. The video placed on top of the page will be saved in your Youtube folder automatically.

Currently there is no limit on file storage space. When the storage limitation will be fixed, we will inform all users by registered email. But the files that are already uploaded to Wepware by users will not be affected.
We don't have private folders. All folders are set to Normal (which means Public) and can be viewed by everyone who visits your profile page. However, you can limit the access to your folder to selected people by selecting Friends option in folder settings.

Groups can be Open and Closed.
Anyone can join Open groups but Closed groups are available only by invitation from friends.
Members can reply to your post and Like it.
You can access Groups from the Left Menu of the Main page after login to Wepware.
Press the Like button on the bottom-right of a grab when you want to show your appreciation. You can also Like your own grabs. Next to Like button there is a number showing how many Wepware users hit Like.

A Grab Board is a user public page. It displays user description (Everything that you write in ‘About me’ section of your Profile Settings).
Grab Board is also a place where all your public folders can be browsed by others. Each folder in Grab Board has a public URL and therefore can be easily shared with Wepware peers and people without Wepware account. To visit user Grab Board, click his profile image.
To view your own Grab Board click your own profile image.
You cannot manage all your folders from Grab Board, because it shows only public content. You prrivate grabs can be viewed and managed only from My grabs.
A folder of grabs can be shared using aGrab board. You can get to your board by clicking an icon next to the title of your opened folder.
If you want to share your folder with everybody, you have toset your folder to Normal (which means public, seen by everybody). When you start Wepware and when you create a new folder it is normal by default. All normal folders automatically appear in Grab board. So all your grab board visitors can view it.
If you want to share your folder with a circle of friends and nobody else, set it to Friends in Folder Settings and select audience from list of friends and groups.
Moreover, each folder in Grab board has a unique URL. You can use URL to share your collection of grabs with people who don't have Wepware account.
Finally, public grabs that appear in the Explore tab, link to a corresponding folder in a Grab board. Therefore every user who views your grabs in Explore tab can directly visit your public folder by clicking on folder title or the thumbnails of the grabs below.
If you change the privacy mode of your grab from public to private, people who have already re-grabbed it earlier will still be able to use it. However, it won’t be visible in Explore tab and Grab Board any longer.
To change a grab from public to private or vice versa just click on the lock sign at the Up-Left corner of the grab.
