New Features

Active Site Builder Beta

Introduction

The beta version of Active Site Builder is an exciting site creation and editing interface that provides an easy-to-use method for creating smaller web sites and also provides a user-friendly view for those responsible for maintaining portions of larger enterprise installations. With the beta version of Site Builder, you can enjoy simple editing capacity for general content (basic pages) and the calendar page. Future versions will continue to harness the power of the Active Content Manager within this new simplified interface, providing all levels of users with the ability to quickly and easily update content.

Photo Galleries and Slide Shows

Using drag-and-drop functionality, you can create and manage a photo gallery on your site. You can add and remove pictures and other types of images to keep your gallery current and to showcase events, activities and people. You can display the photos in a slide show and even insert a slide show on multiple pages throughout your site.

Calendar Widget

You can create a calendar of events and activities for your site and then you can insert a smaller version of your calendar as a widget on multiple pages throughout your site! This will keep your community members informed of important upcoming events by making this information readily available as users navigate through your site.

Images and Links

The page content editor toolbar includes the following features:

Insert Image: This button allows you to select an image from the files you have already uploaded to your site, or an image located elsewhere on the internet. You can use pictures or other types of image files. Once you have inserted an image, you can change its size and shape, as well as how it displays on your page in relation to the text and other content.

 

 

Insert Link: This button allows you to create text that the user can click on to go to another site, to another page on your site, to open a file (e.g., a registration package or emergency contact form), or to send an email. You can also create an Image Map, which allows you to determine what happens when a user clicks on a logo or other image on your site; you can choose for the action to open a new site, a new page, or a file.
