More Design Options

Pale gold, outlines, shadows, oh my! Deployment version 2.8.9 was released today, and it brings several new design styles to the dashboard.

Backgrounds, etc: Columns, groups, and the media + text blocks now have four new background designs to choose from. Mix and match styles to add visual interest and variety to your pages.

Buttons: In addition to gold and gray buttons, we now offer buttons outlined in black and white, as well as a “link with arrow.” These options are located in the button block’s style tab.

Introduction Paragraph: Begin articles or heavy-worded pages with larger intro text. This new paragraph style allows readers to digest important information before diving into the nitty gritty.

Media + Text Block: We have added a “padding picker” in the style tab to add further flexibility with this awesome block. Read more about this often overlooked block

Heading: For the heading block we’ve added a bold new decorative style option called the Heavy Gold Underline. Use this when you’d like to add some flair to your usual headings.

Where can you find the styles?

These new design options are located in the “style tab” for each block. Start exploring and experimenting; we can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Cleaner Links

If you’ve shared PDFs or images from the website, the URL might have looked a little something like this:

Messy and confusing URLs are not ideal, so in this deployment we’ve added a new field to the media library called Assets URL. It presents a cleaner link that can be used for sharing and linking.

A big thank you to the IS team who helped us make this possible!
