It’s been a while since the new version of doomby has been up and running, and high time to fill you in on some of the great new features. In addition to all the existing tools to make a website that you’ve been used to in the previous version, your website builder tools now enable you to personalize your website in new and exciting ways.
Setting up website date formats
Your website settings include the possibility to personalize the layout of dates for items published on your website. Take this blog post as an example – if you look just under the post title, you’ll notice an automatic date stamp.
You can personalize the presentation of date stamps used on your website, to apply long date formats, abbreviated or numerical formats. And it doesn’t matter which side of the Atlantic, Pacific or Indian you live: you’ll find a date format that works for your website.
Define a time zone for your website
Personalize the time zone format for your website to ensure dates “rollover” the way they should, wherever you may live. Simply choose the time zone for your locale, or the one you’d prefer to apply to your website, and save your changes. It’s that easy.
Personalize your website email address
Whenever visitors subscribe to your newsletters, order items on your online store or receive reply notification emails via your online contact forms, you can now personalize the email sender address and name that will appear in your site emails, to harmonize your online communications. Choose one of your personalized email addresses if you have your own domain name for your website for a coherent end-to-end online marketing and communications strategy.
To adjust and personalize your website settings, just head to the Settings > Global settings > Site info menu of your site manager.
As we previously announced a few days ago, we're releasing our next version of your site managers and websites next week. We’ve been steadily transferring copies of your websites over to our new servers for the last few weeks in preparation for the release of our next (and very great) version. These copies are updated regularly, each time your sites are edited, or content posted by your site visitors (like comments, forum posts etc.).
We're in the mood for celebrating here at doomby, with our next fantastic version due for release next week, September 28. As our way of sharing the love, and for saying "thanks" for being part of what makes doomby everything it is, we're offering existing and new members discounts on domain names and doombyPLUS to help you make a website you'll be proud of.
Over the last year, the doomby team has been focused on two things: helping our members make a website that’s right for them, and redesigning our website builder from the ground up to help new and existing members create, manage and publish site content in new and exciting ways. With doomby’s second birthday just a few weeks away, we’re putting the finishing touches on the next version of your free website builder: it’ll be online September 28, and it’s our way of celebrating our second birthday with you.
We’ve been pretty busy here at doomby over the last few months finishing up work on the next version of our free website builder. One of the key driving forces behind this work has been to help beginners make a website more easily than ever before, by simplifying the layout of menus and unifying website builder tools like the new site content explorer.
One of the new features of doomby V4 is the new site menu manager, designed to make managing website menus more user-friendly than ever.
