Hand Crafted Websites Made By You!
Blog posts : "General"
We have created a pile of new themes for you! Remember, you can change your theme at anytime and all your website content will stay intact. So feel free to try out different themes.
Here are a few, but there are many!
Did you know that you can edit and preview custom CSS changes to your theme live in your web browser?
To take advantage of this new feature, just edit your theme CSS from the "Edit Theme" menu.
The window height is adjustable, and you can even inspect elements on the page while editing.
Your custom CSS changes can be tested and published faster than ever before!
Have a look at the updated Background Editor. You will love trying different background images or patterns to make your site perfect!
You can upload your own background image, or you can select one from our huge collection of Stock Photos (like we used in the examples below).
You will find the Background Editor under the Edit Theme dropdown in the toolbar.
Here are some samples of what you can do...
Now you can choose from a variety of Map themes to best suit your website.
Now isn't that cool!
A lot of our themes have main "Header" images you can change. And we have thousands of stock photos you can use or you can upload your own image.
With some of our new themes, we have what we call a Hero image that stretches across the site. You can pick a theme like that and change the image to be whatever you like.
Here is a quick example of us using some of our free stock photos (we have over 100,000!) to replace the Hero image...
To change the image on your site, just hover over the image and you will see an Edit Image box appear.
Note: You can have a different image on every page of your website!
In the Font Editor, we have added a new feature for adding Text Shadows to your title fonts, subtitle fonts, navigation fonts, and more.
Here is a demo of what you can do...
1) Here is the title with no drop shadow added.
2) Now there is a soft grey blurred drop shadow.
3) And here is a sharper green shadow in behind the text.
Have fun with your new Text Shadows!
You can access the Fonts Editor under "Edit Theme" in the main toolbar.
Our responsive themes now include a fantastic mobile navigation menu, making your website easier than ever to browse on any device.
Lots of great new themes! All responsive and mobile friendly!
Did you know that you can change your website theme and any time and your site content will be there? You switch to a different theme anytime!
There are now two awesome new "masonry grid" format thumbnail styles, which automatically tile each image like in the example above. You can select these in your Image Gallery Settings.
This looks especially fantastic using the new "Load images as user scrolls" option, also on the Settings page. As you scroll down a page, the Image Gallery will only load images as they can be seen. Not only does this increase page load speed, but it looks really cool!
You are going to love the new responsive Image Slideshow components we have just released!
Slice and dice with the new 3D Slideshow. You can choose to go with vertical or horizontal slices, or both if you like!
The other Image Slideshow component has many transition settings. You will just have to play to see what settings you prefer. Fade, Slide, Rain, Blinds and more.
Oh, and we also added a bunch more Fonts to the builder. So now you have way more to choose from to make that perfect website.
The Ecwid component in the eCommerce category can now be used by free Jigsy members, so adding a shopping cart has never been easier!
Ecwid (pronounced as “eck-wid”, short for “e-commerce widgets”), is a revolutionary shopping cart that seamlessly integrates with your existing website.
Although it’s packed with high-value features, Ecwid is absolutely FREE! You’ll pay no setup charges and no transaction fees, making it a no-cost, high-return solution for today’s e-commerce businesses.
Today we released 10 fun new responsive themes. All of these great new themes are mobile optimized, and include many layouts to choose from.
Also starting today, you can register or login to your Jigsy account with one click using Facebook or Twitter!
To link or unlink Twitter or Facebook accounts, you can login to your Jigsy Dashboard and then click on the "Account / Plan" tab above your websites.
Today we released a new feature for our blog: Read More!
Read more allows you to separate what displays on your main blog page and on the page of the actual post.
To insert the read more, click the 'Read More' button.
Once you have inserted the read more all content below will be hidden unless you are on the page for the actual post.
Now you can have your own clients!
Over the last few months we have created a new Designer Program so you can create your own Client Accounts.
Your clients will have their own login and can edit their own website. As well, you will be able to login as your Client and provide them the support they need. Not only can you create accounts, you can also be added to other existing Jigsy accounts. When you join the program you will be featured on our designer directory page where other Jigsy members can get in contact with you.
The Designer Program is FREE for our Pro members, all that is required to join is to submit three screenshots of previous work. This can be three pages from the last Jigsy website you created or the front page of three completely different Jigsy websites. The minimum size for a screenshot is 800px by 800px.
We are super excited to introduce this program and would like to invite you to join today.
Guess what! This blog is a Jigsy website!
