New Product Updates! December, 2013.

As the year comes to an end, we wanted to take this opportunity to shed light on a few improvements we've made to our app over the course of December.   We also want you to know, we are maintaining full-steam ahead as we continue to excel into 2014!!

Without further or due, let's check out these updates!


1. Your news feed has been added to the home page of the Grand View template.
Our Grand View template is by far, one of the most popular templates.  Although the initial response has been fantastic, your feedback has suggested, it would be a great addition to have the option to enable your news feed to the home page of this template.  So, now when you create a site using the Grand View template, you can either turn your news feed "On" or leave it "off" just as it was before. Check it out!



2. Edit your images with the all new Aviary 3.0!
Aviary, the image editing tool we support in our app, has recently released a slick, new version that is, well, awesome!  
Here are some of the highlights:
  • Gorgeous, streamlined interface: better customization for you, and improved performance for our users. 
  • Improved the number of tools, including Enhance, Crop, Draw and Text.
  • Improved the top and bottom toolbars of the editor: tool name displayed above, image size below the photo. 
  • Greatly improved it's general performance and responsiveness. 


3. Two new templates coming soon!
One of the items, we're so passionately working on to improve is the site templates we have available for all of our users.   Your feedback has let us know, you're looking for some fresh, new looks to create your sites with, so we've asked our designers to whip up a couple brand new templates that offer a bolder, slicker look.  You're going to love the new designs! 

Check them out below!

How to: Add a Custom Page to your Site


The power of adding your own custom pages to your SITEFLY site has arrived!  We're super excited about this new feature as it's one of the most powerful tools available for all our SITEFLY creators.  It's also one of those features that has been in high demand since we first launched SITEFLY earlier this year.

We originally thought, the content pulled from your Facebook page would be sufficient enough to share your businesses story; however, we quickly learned that you needed that extra set of tools to help develop your story while enhancing your credibility on the web. 

With your help, we've been able to assemble a super-intuitive, easy-to-use page manager that allows you to add unlimited pages (based on your subscription plan) where you have the freedom to add text, images, video, audio, online stores and more!

Let's take a quick look on how easy it is to add a custom page to your site :) 

Adding a page is quick and simple.  To begin, while in your sites editor, simply click the 'Pages' icon located in your left-hand tool bar.  Once clicked, your page manager will expand where you now have the option to add a new page.  Click the "+ new page" button to launch your available page layouts.



Once you've click '+ new page' a pop-up will display where you can choose any of the eleven different page layouts.  We list the different types of pages along the top as tabs.  To select a page of your choice, hover over the image and 'click'.


Next, you will be asked to add your pages title.  Enter your page title then, click "Save".


Now, SITEFLY will bring you to your all new page.  Once on your page, you can begin to click and edit each of the custom content sections to begin adding your own content.  


You can continue to add more sections of content by clicking the "Add Section" box. 



When you're finished creating your new page, it's time to save all your changes!  To do this, simply click the "Publish" button located at the top right of your sites editor.   By clicking publish, you are pushing all new edits to your live site.  Before publishing, you can always preview your site by clicking the "Preview" icon located to the bottom left hand site of your editor toolbar.
