New Film Roll Component

The brand new Film Roll Component lets you horizontally scroll through images. You can use arrows and/or navigation dots to navigate through images.

The Film Roll Component is swipe friendly!

New Text/Content Component Revisions

June 28, 2016

This much requested feature is finally here - Text/Content Component Revisions!

Your last 10 changes are now saved so you can revert changes on any Text/Content Component. That means if you accidently delete content you can undo it. Revisions can be found under the settings drop down.

A revision is created every time a save is made, the system keeps the last 10 revisions, these are your save points. When you select a revision your current content will be replaced by the revision. You can revert back by choosing the latest revision.

Please note: This feature is currently only available on the Text/Content Component.

New Layout Builder

June 23, 2016

A brand new Layout Builder has just been released! 

You can access the new Layout Builder by clicking the Layout Icon or by clicking 'Add Content to Page' button and selecting the 'Layout' tab.

Simply drag and drop a Layout Row to your page and you will be provided with empty locations. From there you can add your content just as you did before.

You can mix and match the rows above to create a unique and custom look for every page of your site.

Check out the new Layout Builder and let us know what you think!

Please Note: some older and custom themes may not be compatible with the new Layout Builder. In that case users will stay with the old Page Layouts system.

Four New Components

May 17, 2016

We have added four great new components that make building your website even easier!

Single Button Component

The Single Button Component allows you to easily add a button on your site. You can customize the text, style, font, colour, spacing, width, hover style and more!

Before After Component

A sliding image component to easily feature before and after photos.

Social Media Buttons

Easily add Social Media Buttons on your website so your users can find you on Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, Flickr, 500px and more! You can easily arrange the buttons in the order of your choice by dragging and dropping them. You can choose your own colours, sizes and button shape. Adjust the rounded corners setting to change your buttons from square to rounded or circles.

Disqus Component

You can now easily add Disqus to your website. All you need is your Shortname!

Not familiar with Disqus? With Disqus, your website gains a feature-rich comment system complete with social network integration, advanced administration and moderation options, and other extensive community functions.

Note: The Single Button Component is available to all users. The Before After, Social Media Buttons and Disqus Components are available to premium users.

Lightbox Image Viewer

April 29, 2016

This post is for those of you who may not have found this great hidden gem. This awesome feature was actually released a while ago but never officially announced.

When creating a link you can choose the “Image Viewer (Lightbox)” option, this allows you to link to a single image and have it open in a Lightbox.

New Pinned Components

April 1, 2016

Pinned components are here! We're hoping this will be a more flexible and less confusing alternative to our site-wide components.

When you pin a component you can copy it to multiple pages and any edits you make to the pinned component will show up on all of the other components as well.

There's a new menu option called, 'Pin'.

Clicking 'Pin' will display a pop-up explaining what pinning a component will do for you.

After ok-ing the pin, a new menu will show you all of the pages that this pinned component is currently on.

You can use the checkboxes to select which pages you'd like to have this component appear on.

Editing one pinned component will update them all!

Try it out and let us know what you think.
