So you’ve had a few weeks to play around with the new Full-Width widget areas on your homepage and on your category landing pages. You’ve figured out how to do some pretty cool stuff to make your page even more extra, and you’ve even figured out how to replicate and improve the Showcase Carousel and the Teaser Bars using the new Carousel and Category widgets.

It’s good to be free.

And now, the programming whizzes at SNO headquarters have something even cooler to add: the Grid widget. That’s right. It’s a photo block widget, and you’re in total control of the size, content, configuration and design of it. No longer are you bound to the pre-programmed grid options of the Showcase Carousel. AND, you can put the Grid Widget anywhere on your site. Like, anywhere. You can even use it on your category landing pages. Cool, right? We thought so.

Combine the Grid Widget with the new Carousel and Category widgets, and utilize the new Full-With widget areas, and you can build a site that’s unlike anyone else’s. And that’s awesome.

To see the new features on your website today, simply click the Update link in your FLEX dashboard and upgrade to version 6.7.  Need help upgrading? Just drop us a line.

We’ll demonstrate the new Grid widget, along with the Carousel and Category widgets and the Full-Width widget areas in a SNODrift webinar this Thursday, February 3rd, at 2pm, CST. You should tune in! But if you can’t make it, don’t worry, we’ll post the webinar on our site, so you can watch it anytime you want.
