More FREE Showit updates!

One of the greatest things about using Showit is that we are always making it better and adding more free features and better stuff! As opposed to template websites where you get what you get and you're stuck with it for the next year or two. Everytime we release something new you get it instantly and you don't have to pay anything extra!

So just the other day we launched an update to introduce a few new features and squash some minor bugs. If you haven't already... open up Showit and you should be prompted to install this latest update.

One of the new features added gives you the ability to control the latest galleries with any text or image you want to. Now you can advance the images in a gallery... advance the thumbnails... play... or pause... with whatever layer best fits your site. In the Link tab for any layer... check the Action radio button... match up the target with your thumb gallery and display area... choose the action for when the user clicks... and you're done!
In addition to that, we've also added some new options for the galleries. You can choose to hide the current thumb gallery controls if you're going to take advantage of the new options mentioned above. And you now have the ability to use a highlight color that will highlight the selected thumbnail and also highlight any thumbnail you mouse over.
Another feature added that will definitely speed up organizing your site is the ability to quickly add blank style groups and pages right from the pages panel. Make sure to right click on a style group in the pages panel and you'll see the new options in the displayed menu.

And here are some of the other things you'll be happy to know we've fixed:
  • Scrolling bug for organizing lists of images in a gallery
  • Background bug with style groups
  • Scroll bar issues on smaller monitors
  • Background editing on inherited backgrounds
  • "Copy URL" uses HTML instead if deep linking for improved SEO results

We hope you enjoy this update and let us know if you run into any issues.

Thanks again!
