We had our final deployment of 2011 last night and introduced some changes to our website, new features, and bug fixes. Here’s a rundown of the biggest changes:
1. Create a free vSites account
On the vSites pricing page, we added an option to create a free account and build a website for free. Users who sign up for a free account get access to all vSites features and can add and edit their site content as much as they want. It’s only when they’re ready to publish the site and take it live that they’ll need to upgrade to a paid subscription.
2. Faster image loading from the Image Library
We sped up the time it takes for images to load in a user’s Image Library, so it will take less time for vSites users to select pictures from their Image Library than before.
3. Special characters removed
In some cases, when users copied and pasted text into the Flyer Editor, they were getting ï»¿ at the end of the text. Now, those pesky special characters won’t be a problem anymore.
4. SEO settings issue fixed
Before, there was a discrepancy when a page’s search engine optimization settings were updated from the Control Panel or the Site Editor. Now the settings can be updated from either location.
5. Repeating modules problem fixed
In some cases, modules that a user added to a site were repeated. This should no longer be an issue.
6. Like Us on Facebook!
We added a Facebook Like widget to the vMarketing account homepage, making it even easier for users to “Like” us on Facebook. It’s a great way to keep up with vFlyer news, learn about promotions we’re running, and share your feedback with us. As of this morning, we were at 960 likes. Help us get to 1,000 before 2012!
Thanks to all of our users whose feedback helped us make these improvements. We’ll be posting an end-of-year recap later in the week, so keep an eye out for it!
