New Feature: Get Notifications in One Daily Email

This week the team made some changes to our email notifications. Prior to today, you could only receive individual email notifications. Now members can choose between individual emails, a daily digest email, or both.

If you choose Daily Digest, this means that instead of receiving an email each time a site you’re following posts, you’ll receive a roundup at the end of the day. This roundup will contain links to all posts created by sites you follow.

To do so, click on “Edit Profile” in the dropdown menu. Next click on the “Notifications” tab. Here you’ll see the settings.

Each site you follow has its own setting. This means you can mix and match settings, receiving some as they happen (ASAP), others at the end of the day (Daily Digest), or some with no notifications at all.

Learn more about our new Email Notifications.

New Themes This Week: Wedding, Minimalist, & Tumblr-Inspired

Ask and ye shall receive.  Based on your requests, we've created a number of new themes this week. We've got a customizable wedding theme in blue, green, and rose; a new minimalist theme called Clean Sweep; and three existing themes that we've adapted for OnSugar: oneoneone by Quantum Thinking, museum theme by paulgiacherio, and bygone era by Robert Boylan.

You can try them out on your own site by clicking on "themes" under your site drop down and navigating to the last page of featured themes.

New Feature: Customize Your Theme

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.
