We’re happy to announce that the new Website Live Designer (Beta) is now available to all Rotary Customers! You asked for a more intuitive, fun and easy way to manage your website and that is just what we delivered. Watch your website come to life as you design your website right in preview mode! How to access the new designer The new Website Live Designer (beta) tab now shows after logging into the Members Area as shown below. Why should I use the new Website Live Designer? You now have the significant advantage of being able to see and interact with your page visually. No longer do you have to open, save and publish each widget. Now, simply click into a widget, make your changes and that’s it. Best of all, you can now customize your website exactly the way you want it, without any guess work. The system will auto save any progress for you automatically, just like the Bulletin Live Designer! Live responsive preview While you can easily see what the page looks like while designing, we’ve also enhanced the preview mode to switch between different devices as well. Preview your club’s website on a desktop, tablet, or phone. Simply clicking the icons at the top switches to the desired preview mode: Edit any custom page You can also edit all of your custom pages with this new designer. Simply click on the Custom Page Library link under the New Website (Beta) tab and switch to the Grid View on the Page Library List. Pre-designed Page Templates When creating new pages in ClubRunner you’ll now have access to a gallery of pre-made pages with content that is ready to go, which means you don’t ever have to start from scratch. Prefer creating your own design? That’s possible too! Feedback As an Early Access participant, this is your chance to have your say. Share your feedback on what you like about this new designer and what could use improvement. Your suggestions will guide us in making improvements to this new module. Known limitations There are three known issues for the current release of the website live designer Issue 1: Only Next Gen Theme support If your club has not switched to a next gen theme you’ll be prompted with a page letting you know that you have to switch. Issue 2: Multiple Widgets with the same name When you have the same Custom Widget (Page Specific or Global ) multiple times on the same page, you will be unable to edit the widget. To work around the issue, use the edit widget link as shown below: Issue 3: Making changes to widgets requires a publish. When you edit a widget while in the live designer like a custom widget the changes to your widget will not show up until the page is published. Always make sure to publish the entire page to see your changes go live.
