The 4.6 system update has now been fully deployed to all Site Builder systems. In addition to previously announced features, this update includes:
A few new layouts are now available from the design area. To use the new layouts, go to the design area, click "site layout" and then click "modify layout". The layouts are listed in the new layouts section.
Many of the layouts take advantage of the latest HTML5/css design features such as rounded corners, transparency, transforms (rotations) and shadows. In older browsers, the site will not display with the enhanced features. Example: The rounded menu buttons will appear square.
The logout link is now available by clicking the gear icon to the right of the help tab. When the gear is clicked, a menu opens with a logout option, which works like the Facebook gear/logout option. Users also can also log out by closing all their browser windows.
To clarify the product image upload process, the product images area is now easier and more flexible. To access the upload options from the previous system, simply click the "advanced upload" link on the right side of the ecommerce product images area (all the same image sizing features are available).
FUTURE SYSTEM UPDATES - COMING SOON
The next update will include more enhanced layouts, new design features, enhanced mobile support and more dynamic image generation.
Automatic responsive mobile site:
By default websites will fit on mobile devices. The responsive features will work for most templates. With the automatic mobile responsive sites, you will not need to create a separate mobile site. Images are shrunk and all multi-column layouts become stacked into one long column. A mobile bar added to the top of the mobile site includes a dropdown/slide out menu for mobile site navigation. We are also investigating tablet specific site displays. The option to create a separate dedicated mobile site will still be available for customers who require more than just a generic mobile site.
Auto fit image galleries:
With the auto fit image galleries, you simply upload your gallery images and the images are scaled to fit the width of the page. There is no need to set the size of your images. You only set how many columns you wish to display. The system will fill the page with images based on your settings.
Enhanced image styles:
Using css features, enhanced image styles allow you to choose how you want to display images on your site. Choose from standard styles, rounded corners, circle shapes, box shadows, colored borders and more. These styles can be applied to any image on your site (page images, galleries, and product images).
The image caption styles allow you to create captions that overlay an image with a transparent background.
