Just in time for Christmas, we’re releasing some new ‘wrapping’. Theme customization is now available on thirteen of our most popular themes. You can change colors, fonts, add your own header and more. We decked out the OnSugar blog in a matter of minutes.
To customize your own theme, go to your site menu, click "Themes", then set your blog to one of the featured themes with the “customizable” banner. Next head over to the the “Active” tab where you’ll see all the customization options for that theme.
Different themes have different customization options, so be sure to check out each one. We plan on rolling out more customized themes, so let us know what you’d like to see.
We are very proud to announce the launch of ShopSense. With ShopSense, you can get paid for the traffic you send retailers when you feature ShopStyle products, links and widgets on your site. There’s no code to download or special steps to take. As an OnSugar user, all you need to do is register your account and start blogging. Use the image uploader to access ShopStyle’s catalog of over 500,000 products, then find your favorites and select images and captions to add to your post. It’s that simple.
There are tons of ways to integrate ShopSense into your blogs. We've already seen some amazing layouts on the network. You can also add custom widgets to your site and get paid for those clicks as well. Learn more about ShopSense here.
To register your account and get started, click on “ShopSense” on your user dropdown menu.
We want to hear what you think! If there’s something you’d like to know about or see on ShopSense, drop us a line.
You asked, we built. It's now easy to publish and manage two widget sidebars on your OnSugar blog. To check it out, go to your widget management page. You'll notice there are two column under the active tab. Toggle between the two to add widgets to each.
There are currently seven featured themes that work with the new three column format, but we’re adding more all the time. Have a three column theme you'd like to see OnSugar? Let me know.
Did you just see the craziest thing on your morning commute and wish you could've blogged about it right there and then? Well now you can.
This week our development team unveiled our new post by email feature. Now you can post from your email equipped phone, or — and of course we don't actually endorse this — publish brilliant posts under the guise of composing work email.
To get started click on "Edit Profile" in the drop down menu. To learn more about posting by email, visit our help blog.
I should also mention that this featured was developed because many of you asked for it. So if you have other ideas for us, be sure to send them our way.
