The Internet and devices used to access it have moved a long way from their more humble beginnings. It used to be simple to design a website, with pretty much only one way to access it online: from a fixed computer screen, that wasn’t very big. Times have changed, and these days it’s almost impossible de know what kind of screen or device will be used to view web pages when you first begin to create a website. That makes it hard to make decisions about key website design principles, like the size of the site and its content, and how best to layout pages and site navigation.
Although a response to this problem has been around for a while, it’s not until very recently that designing websites with all kinds of different screen resolutions in mind has really gained momentum among web designers.
The new year is off to a great start, with a brand new online website manager up and running, designed to help you make a website a whole lot more quickly and easily. As we talked about a few weeks ago we’ve also been working on a simple way to help you quickly transform your regular websites to mobile websites. It’s now ready to move into an public beta test, so you can start trying it out on your website from today.
Your new site manager comes with some very handy new things, so to make them work optimally there are also a few things that will change. Here’s a quick overview of the changes ahead, so you’ll feel right at home in your new website builder.
As we mentioned last week, the work on the new site manager is progressing at full speed, and before we update your site manager, we’d like to take you on a quick tour so you can familiarize yourself with what’s in store.
We’re working on a lot of different things at the moment, to make it easier to make a website, and to make those websites better than ever. Over the next few weeks (hopefully just in time for the new year), we’ll be releasing a couple of updates that are designed to give your sites a great start to 2013.
