May Update

These first months of 2008 have been busy ones at Freewebs.  In fact, so busy that we never had time to talk about Video Galleries!  Yes, we posted a few comments, but the new feature never received its own Blog post.  Time to remedy that.

Why a Video Gallery?  Photo Gallery turned out to be a popular new feature.  So, we thought, how about doing the same thing only for Videos?  Sounded like a good idea.

What are the features?

  • Multiple Channels. Channels are like photo albums.  They provide a place where you can group videos together.  All the summer vacation videos on one channel, all the wedding videos in another and all the pet videos (for example) on another.
  • Multiple sources. Pull in a video from anywhere!  Upload a video from your computer directly to Freewebs or provide the URL from whatever location or search YouTube or provide embed code.   Your choice.
  • Letting people know more.  For each video, provide a title and a description of the video so they know a bit more about it before taking a look.  Shortly, you’ll also be able to provide a custom thumbnail image if you’d like.
  • On your Site.  On your Gallery page, you’ll find a collection of thumbnails for the videos.  And, if you want, you can always add a channel or an individual video directly to your nav bar by clicking on Page Properties in the blue bar.  Your site visitors can comment on each video too.

Add a few videos to your site (or a lot of videos) and let us know what you think.  Now, let’s talk about the next few weeks.  Look forward to a few new templates, multiple images per product for Web Stores, and reordering products.

Happy site building!
