Simplified blog content management

The new content explorer has now been extended to the Blog add-on, and in addition to the great new features already available in the Pages add-on, like one-click content duplicating and a powerful content search engine, the Blog content explorer also has a new feature, specific to the Blog add-on, designed to make it simpler than ever to create a blog and manage blog content.

WebUser UK review

WebUser UKFor those of you who call the UK home (or happen to be passing through Heathrow in the next couple of days), check out the latest edition of WebUser UK magazine (issue n° 301, dated 20 September 2012) for a review of doomby and 8 other great online website builders. You'll have to hurry though, the next edition is due out in just 2 days from now.

Nice work, though they managed to get one thing a little wrong (but hey, we're all only human, right?).

Like the hundreds of other great free website building features, enabling an online store in your doomby site manager takes a couple of clicks, and it's 100% free to publish from one to five products on your online store at any one time.

 

Personalize your website date, time zone and email formats

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.
