WEBSITE BUILDER NEWS AND FEATURE UPDATES
Wednesday, August 09 2017
Release 4.97 is currently being deployed, and we hope to have the release available to all customers within the next couple of weeks.
New Templates / Styles
New layouts have been added and many more are in the works. These responsive layouts give you the flexibility to setup any kind of design to meet your needs.
New Page Layouts
We have made it easier to create fantastic looking pages. Our new page layouts will get you started with great looking pages. Select your page style, upload images and enter your text.
Updated Text Editor
The text editor has been updated and now supports the Microsoft Edge Browser
Image Hover Animations
Enable advanced hover animations for images. When visitors move the mouse over an image, you can set the image to zoom in. For image captions you can set the captions to fade in on top of the image or display with a slide in animation. To setup hover animation go to the design->advanced settings->animated transitions page. More great animations coming soon.
Simplified Text Edit Bar
Remove clutter from the text editor and quickly access primary editing functions: styling text, editing links and inserting images.
Long Page Updates
The long form pages are now much easier to edit. You no longer need to select which section you are editing. The full page can be edited at the same time. Edit and easily move components anywhere on the page.
Mobile App Services (Beta/Upgrade)
Are you looking to have an App in the IOS AppStore or Google Play Store for your customers/site visitors to download? With the new App Services we can take your existing website and turn it into a downloadable App. Once it is created, you can use the site builder to manage the content displayed in your App. Contact Support for more information.
Once you have a component set with all the options that you want, it can easily be copied so you can start editing with the setting that you like to use. To copy a component, tap the green box to the right of the component edit link and then click the copy button. NOTE: only some components support the copy feature.
Hundreds of new icons have been added to the icons area. To add icons to your pages, use the image component and then tap the choose icon button. You can select different icons styles and customize your colors.
More Button for Text Components
Easily add a more button to the bottom of your text components. The more button creates an easy way to link a quick text paragraph to a detailed page with more information.
Text/Image Animation Component
Create dynamic text/image animations. As you scroll through pages text and images will animate.
Animated Rotating Word Component
Use the rotating word component to create an animated text sentence. Choose a word in the sentence and have to rotate between different words. Customize colors, words, animations and more.
Many updates have been added to help your pages display better on mobile devices. The new responsive templates have updated menus and options for search and viewing a shopper's cart.
This is a new mode that allows the form to auto size to fill the available page space. The form now allows for larger files to be uploaded when visitors submit a form. The new date field type allows visitors to enter a date or select the date from a popup calendar. The date field will show in newer web browsers.
The spacer component allows you to add more space between components and sections. Adding space between components can help your pages to be easier to read and navigate.
A new groupbox style has been added that allows you to customize the color and choose an icon or image to be displayed at the top of the box.
