🦉 Owlstown Newsletter #56
Happy New Year, Owlstowners!
I’m excited to share with you a couple of new features that will improve your editing experience in Owlstown.
These features have been in my todo list for a long time, so I’m glad it’s finally available. Thank you to those who suggested these features. I appreciate your patience.
As you use the features, take note of what is easy and what is difficult. Let me know your experience, so I can keep improving Owlstown.
The inline editing feature that I mentioned in the last newsletter is now available in the Owlstown Editor. This feature will make it even easier to update your academic website.
With inline editing, you can edit the content of your webpage directly on the webpage itself instead of editing a form on the Owlstown Editor sidebar. This feature will also save your changes automatically, so you don’t lose changes when you forget to click the Save button.
I left the old UI, in case there are problems with this new UI. Over time, I’ll remove the old UI. If you experience any problems, don’t hesitate to reach out with feature ideas or bug reports.
Nested links in the Navigation Bar
Owlstown now supports nested links in the Navigation Bar. With this feature, you can put more links in the navigation bar, while keeping it more organized.
I also updated the Navigation screen, so you can now link to any page in your Owlstown website. You can also link to PDF files.
Many people have asked for this feature, so I’m glad to have gotten around to it. This feature is available in all themes.
Owlstown Website Insights
For a limited time, I'm offering a free service to review your website to help you improve your academic website.
I will provide 1-2 actionable suggestions that you could use to improve your website. I will look at your website for its content, organization, and design.
This offer is available to Owlstown users and non-Owlstown users, so feel free to let your colleagues know.
