We’re always looking for ways to make our website solutions work just a little bit harder for you and your customers. Today, we have not one, but four to share!
- NEW grid view for Content Site and Business Solution gallery pages
- NEW focal point editor for Content Site and Business Solution gallery pages
- NEW music for Content Site and Business Solution galleries
- NEW custom social media icons for HTML5 Portfolio Sites
Grid View for Gallery Pages
We want to introduce you to our latest innovation, grid view for gallery pages!
Until now gallery pages on the Content Sites and Business Solutions opened with a single large image. Now you can also choose from several layouts that will display all the image thumbnails in the gallery at once.
By clicking any individual image in the grid layout, you will open the image in large view mode. The images will then display in a slideshow format. The large view mode even works with our color-shifting technology, as shown below.
To return to the grid view, simply click on the icon in the bottom right corner of the page. Your visitors can toggle back and forth between the two views just that easily.
Another nice feature we’ve added to the grid view is endless scroll. No matter how many images your gallery has, your visitors won’t have to click through pages to see them. The image thumbnails load as they scroll down the page!
So, how do you use this new feature? Couldn’t be easier – you can select from several available grid view layout styles right in your control panel, including collage, collage large, rectangle, rectangle large, and square.
We think you’ll love the ease and style of grid view for your gallery pages.
Edit Focal Point
Another new feature for your Content Sites and Business Solutions gallery pages is the ability to edit your image focal point. Now when you upload an image, you’ll be able to select the focal point of the image to determine how it will display on your page. This allows you much greater control over how your images will display within the grid layouts!
This feature works with the Rectangle, Rectangle Large, and Square page layouts for our Content Sites and Business Solutions.
Gallery Page Music
In addition, you can now play music on your HTML5 Content Sites and Business Solutions gallery pages!
You can select up to three songs to play in order on your gallery pages, as one song finishes the next starts. Choose from among our selection of more than 50 royalty-free songs, or upload your own royalty-free music to play (upload as an MP3) as your images display.
Custom Icons for HTML5 Portfolio Sites
One of our favorite recent innovations was giving you the ability to add custom social media icons to your HTML5 Content Sites and Business Solutions. We liked it so much we’ve now added it to the HTML5 Portfolio Sites!
From your control panel, click on Add Icon and you’ll be able to either choose from among our extensive bank of social media icons, or upload your own as a PNG image, to a maximum size of 16×16 pixels. Once you upload your custom icon, you’ll be able to use it to link to your chosen social media page!
We think you’ll enjoy the way these new features will show off your style!
