  1. More pop - up options

    big companys nowadays have to give information to the client, and at most companies this resolves to lots of informative textes.. There is nothing you can do about it but it ruins your design so you need some features for this. A pop-up windows where you can add text in would be awesome for example you click on a icon and there will pop up an new window with addiontional information/text. So your site will look mimimlatic at the first place but has the same amount of information :)

    • Make a Desktop Application That Works Offline

      I propose Webydo make a desktop application that mirrors the browser experience. Quip ( https://quip.com/ ) is an excellent example of this. This way, we could work on websites offline and not rely on browser stability to update sites. If working offline, when your computer came online the app would upload changes.

      • Site Folders on Main Dashboard

        On the main dashboard where the sites created are listed... This should have folders and option to view more than only 5 projects on the one page. Personally we have some clients that do upward of 10 -12 different types of websites with us and it would be painful having them scattered all throughout the project list. Especially if they are done over a long period where numerous other projects are completed in between. If folders are created it would then also be good to be able to make client notes and reminders in the folders. Possibly also create design…

        • Gallery - manual slideshow presentation & slider navigation dots

          At the moment Webydo gallery has caption & navigation arrows.
          Navigation dots are an old thing (most jquery sliders have them), in most cases they look better then arrows and allow you to show how many actual slides you have in the slideshow and also manually show slides by clicking on the corresponding dot.

          I have been playing with the 'gallery' slider for a bit but I haven't been able to turn off automatic slides display. You can turn caption animation on /off and set other parameters but you cannot set the slideshow display sequence or turn it off to…

            • Tips and Tricks - Publishing as part of the Design process

              Hi Guys!

              Me again!
              I just wanted to let you know that we really do recommend publishing throughout the whole design process, even if it's not finished! Things can often look different in the live websites and links don't work in preview. So if you have like a YouTube video it won't work until you publish.

              Have a Webydo day!

              • Also posted to fb "community"...

                A topic I think is important for this community (here on fb and on your company site's 'forum') is the issue of working with 'Software as a Subscription' *in 'the cloud'* versus working with 'SaaS' *on the computer* (the Adobe "Creative Cloud" concept).

                MUCH of the frustration *I continue to experience* when working with your software via 'the cloud' is its chronic UN-responsiveness. The "hiccups" that occur almost-constantly! Examples? Double-click on text/text does not select... Click-and-drag an element within the 'design studio'/NOTHING happens... Sometimes a process or procedure works/sometimes that exact, same process DOES NOT... Log in for a new…

                • Anchor links to anchor on page and to another page.

                  The directions for this are incomplete and difficult to follow. Has anyone successfully implemented this and can you share some code?

                      Hello,

                      I noticed that this post was a bit outdated so I just wanted to update you all.

                      We have made it easier to link to emails now.

                      To link text:
                      1. Bring in a text element
                      2. Edit the text as you wish
                      3. Highlight the text you want to link
                      4. Click on the link icon in the table directly above the text box
                      5. Choose e-mail from the dropdown list
                      6. Set up your email settings
                      7. Choose your paragraph style for the link
                      8. save!

                      To link an image:

                      1. Bring in a text element
                      2. Place cursor at begining of paragraph
                      3. Click image icon in table directly above text box
                      4. Upload your image, and set the size
                      5. Highlight the image (just like text)
                      6. Click on the link icon in the table directly above the text box
                      7. Choose e-mail from the…

                    • Articles in CMS

                      Is there any way that someone using the CMS would be able to title each article when adding a new one so that they can be properly organised? Currently it just creates them as "New Item" which makes it impossible for them to manage when they have dozens of articles, all named "New Item".

                        I read you are creating a members only feature. When will it be complete? But, more importantly does anyone have any suggestions for a work around until that feature is available?

                                  Hi,
                                  I am a paid member and I have created a page and I have used the ECWID widget along with my product pages, however when ever I published and navigates to that page and clicked to view any of my product's details my whole webpage would shift down, and what happens is after that I would not be able to click the menu bar anymore because of the page moving down. It would be nice if someone could help me with this.

                                  • New pricing model for one site

                                    I wanted to create the only web site on webydo.
                                    According to new pricing model Do I have to pay for 9 additional websites?? Really? If so, webydo became the worst variant just for one night

                                    • Active Menu States for Anchor Links

                                      Currently, although the studio allows you to edit the active state of an anchor link in a menu, it doesn't actually work.

                                      I've recently updated a client's website to a single page website and so I've made use of pinned anchor links for easy navigation.

                                      To ironically illustrate my point, take a look at the Webydo website. The anchor links to the right of the page change state when you navigate to that area of the page.

                                      • Bring to Front Unreliable

                                        I want to put many objects all throughout my site on top of the other objects, in all four layouts. However, The new objects start not in front, and sending them to front does not appear to have any effect. I have to take all the other elements and send them to back first, which requires me to move them (on the X or Y axis) and mess up my layout. Then , and only then ,can I have the newly-created object on top, but the process needs to be repeated for each layout and it ends up messing up…
