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.

We are proud to announce the launch of Facebook Connect integration on the Webs platform!

You can now harness the power of the world’s most popular social network to enhance your sites’ community interaction, bolster site traffic and drive brand awareness.

How does it work?

The new Facebook Connect feature allows for a smooth, seamless integration of Facebook directly with your Members App.

When enabled, your site visitors can join your site with their Facebook accounts, bypassing the need to remember a new password.  Existing members can also login with Facebook and link their current member profile with their Facebook accounts.  Members who login with Facebook Members can then use their Facebook identity to interact with your site and can even choose to post back comments and status updates to their Facebook news feed –promoting their content (and yours) to a massive community on Facebook!
