Have you ever noticed that the way you view a new website and read its content is not the same as if you were reading a book or a newspaper? The reason for this difference is that people scan websites instead of reading every single word. There have been a number of studies conducted to determine the various patterns people use to scan website.

The good news is that you can utilize this information to your advantage in order to help improve your website’s usability and readability. Regardless of the purpose of your website, placing important content in the spots that get scanned the most can help to boost your conversion rates.

It is Wednesday and we have another awesome new site to showcase today! This week we chose a site that is utilizing one of our new templates that we just released last week. Silent War Birds is site dedicated to providing information, pictures, and videos of military aircraft. They made use of our Strong template. Take a look for yourself:

We like how ‘Silent War Birds’ took a different take on what the template originally looked like by adding a custom background. Not sure how to edit your background? Learn How.

Silent War Birds is making great use of Webs features and utilizes several of our popular apps including:

We’re pleased to announce the launch of the Photos Tab on Member Profiles! This feature shows the photos that a member has uploaded, right on their profile. It’s a great way to quickly see what a member has added to your site.

This feature is an extension of the Photos App. If you have the app, and have the option for members to post photos turned on, this tab will appear on your members’ profiles.

This is another way we are expanding the social features on your Webs sites.

We have added a new feature to our Photo Gallery which is a Slideshow only mode.

Choosing the new setting will streamline your gallery page to show just your albums.  And clicking on the album will bring up the slideshow (no intermediate pages, individual image pages, etc.).  Other links that are more useful for the social gallery, like most commented, most recent, and the search box also get removed and social publishing gets turned off.

How to Activate Slideshow only mode?

1. Go to the Settings portion of your Photo Gallery App
