I came across this great infographic "The Evolution of the Blogger" (source: NYMag.com) and made me think that we don't promote enough YWD Blog. If you are not using it, most likely you don't know about it. Though we have many clients in YWD that are currently using our own blog tool and very succesfully, it is not widely used. Our clientele base is the small business and according to HubSpot, business blogging leads to 55% more website visitors. That's right, more visits and more leads!

As you know, it's pretty easy to create image galleries in Your Web Department. You simply select the images you want in the gallery, then add it as a content block to any page.
You have several display styles to choose from. The Lightbox display style – which launches an overlay of the images above the content underneath -- has been replaced by a more modern implementation of the Lightbox effect. The gallery can be launched either by thumbnails of the images (they're created automatically for you) or by the initial image (displayed at full size),
The new features:
Gallery integration with Twitter and Facebook. Visitors can now tweet/like any picture direcetly from the gallery!
Ability for visitors to switch to slideshow mode using a "play" button even if the gallery was not launched in autoplay mode.
Slicker interface. When people rollover any image small interactive thumbnails appear at the bottom, allowing direct navigation to other images.
jQuery-based like YWD's content sliders -- both can be used on the same page.
