December was rich in snow, burning deadlines, and many updates from Boxmode! This month, we outdid ourselves, releasing a bunch of new features, from nine new templates to Grids functionality. And we gathered all the news in our regular Updates article so you wouldn’t miss a thing!
The list is long, so let’s not waste any time and get to it!
And we start with the Grids functionality. So, what are Grids? It’s a tool used to make the websites responsive. In other words, it’ll look good no matter what device you’ll be using. So how does it work when creating your project with Boxmode?You can add a responsive container through the left panel in the dashboard. Press + , then hit Markup. Now you can choose out of several layout options from the menu.
After you drag and drop the container, you can work with its elements, change and move them inside it, and customize the colors and shapes.
Each element in the container is the block, by default. Elements stick with the markup no matter the version, which helps when switching between versions.
We already have several templates on Grids, such as Clickart, Wearsy, Koala, Eventoristics, and Gardevoir extérieur.
To learn more about Grids functionality and how to use it, read our article on using Grids.
Widget Countdown Timer
With the Countdown Timer, you’ll be able to highlight special offers and discounts on your website, using a timer to show how much or little time is left till the end. Countdown Timer is a perfect tool for different conferences, seminars, and similar events. It also allows you to create a sense of urgency regarding your products or services and increase sales. People tend to decide to buy something quicker when they see the limited time.
Don’t wait anymore, and try to set the Countdown Timer yourself. We will guide you through the whole process in the Countdown Timer widget article.
With this feature, you can highlight specific parts of your website and draw people’s attention to the important information. For example, let’s imagine that you want your customers to immediately access the Catalog section of your website or Pricing page. Here is how you can do this easily.
To add the Anchor functionality, click on the chosen element, then click on the link settings.
Next, click on Action type and choose whether the users will be redirected to the new page or a specific page element.
You can also delete the anchor after adding it.
Blog drafts provide you with more convenient ways to manage your blog, add new posts, and delete outdated posts. To go to the Blog management, click the Сontext menu, then click Manage blog.
A new window will appear after you open either a published post or press Create post. You can see the post status at the top panel. For example, if you’ve opened the published post, it’ll be Published; if the planned one, it’ll be Scheduled; if you’ve just started writing, it’ll be Draft.
By pressing a three dots menu, the context menu will appear. Pressing Save as Draft will save your post in the Drafted section in the dashboard. After pressing Schedule, a calendar will appear, allowing you to schedule post-release. Post settings button includes General and SEO settings. General allows you to add Excerpt, Page URL, and Cover. SEO settings will enable you to add a meta title and meta description.
Google Search Console verification
This new feature allows you to verify your domain via Google Search Console. Verifying your identity as a domain owner is essential in establishing an online presence. After you’ve verified your domain, you get the Google indexation. In turn, the Google index affects ranking in the search results.
Does it sound too complicated? No worries! As it turns out, it’s easier when done than said in this case. Besides, we’ve created step-by-step instructions on verifying your domain via Google Search Console for you. So check it out right now!
