We’re excited to announce that we’ve upgraded the editor used throughout Doodlekit. This new version includes some cool new features such as drag and drop image and file uploads, YouTube support as well as performance and stability improvements. Here’s a summary of what’s new…
New Image Features
You can now drag and drop images directly into the Editor content area and resize them. Here’s a video demonstration.
We’ve also made it easier to add Albums and Slideshows to your pages.
YouTube and Other Video
To add a YouTube, Vimeo or other video to your page you just click the Insert Video icon and paste in the “Embed” snippet.
And now you can see a preview of the video right in the editor window.
We’ve also added a new feature that prevents losing content by accidentally leaving the page or closing your browser. If you try to leave the editor without saving you’ll now get a dialog window asking if you’re sure you want to leave. This can be a life-saver for long blog posts.
This new editor is designed to work in mobile browsers so it's easier to edit your website on your phone or tablet device. This is just the first step towards making Doodlekit more mobile friendly. The editor is also designed to create mobile friendly content, in preparation for our new mobile templates.
We’re sure everyone will enjoy these new upgrades. Let us know if you have any feedback.
