As you know, we're constantly update the Your Web Department platform. What you see below are features added just in the past few days.
Whether you're a business user or a designer utilizing YWD to create websites for your own clients, I think these may interest you:
(More) Social media bookmarking
The social media bookmarking options in YWD Designer are now even easier to use. Large icons for individual networks allow you to simply pick just the ones you want. New StumbleUpon, Tumblr and Digg buttons are now available and can be used in either a horizontal row of small icons at the bottom of the pages or as a floating vertical badge with counters (like the one you see right here on this page).
Pagination for blogs
If your blog contains lots of entries, YWD will now automatically include pagination numbers at the very bottom of the blog. They allow visitors to navigate through previous entries with ease. The default is to have 10 entries before the pagination numbers are displayed, but you can change that value for any blog by changing its properties in Tools / Blogs Manager / Blogs.
You can see an example of this new feature by scrolling all the way down this blog's Home page.
New blog option: displaying specific summaries
The Blog tool now lets you pick specific summaries (up to 50 words each) to be displayed on the blog list. The option is available through the blog content block. You can pick as many summaries as you want; use Cmnd/Ctrl-click (Mac/Windows respectively) to select more than one.
New display option for events list
If your website uses the Events Calendar tool and you chose to display the events as a simple list, you can now show the event titles below the date/time (as opposed to side-by-side). It applies only to a list of events placed on the Main column, since lists placed on either the Left or Right columns are automatically stacked, as well as tabular lists of evens broken down by month.
This option can be found in YWD Designer / Tools / Other tools / Events calendar.
Applying an autoformat to the News Manager tool
Any of the 5 available autoformats in YWD Designer / Autoformats can now be applied to the News Manager tool -- either to the whole news area or to each individual news item.
Cropping content that's too wide to fit
We know designers love to have control... so YWD Designer now includes an option that will automatically crop content -- images, tables, etc. -- placed in the main column. It can be found in Layout / Main column / Width & margins. New websites will be set to "Crop the content so it doesn't break the layout" by default, whereas existing websites will remain set to "Allow the content to overflow" (unless you change that, of course). There's also a third option that will automatically display a horizontal scrollbar in case the content is too wide to fit.
This feature can be useful for designers wishing to prevent large images uploaded from their clients from breaking the page layout. It is available for the Left and Right columns as well.
Compatibility with Android tablets
YWD websites already look great on iPads; they've now been optimized for display on Android tablets as well.
