We are pleased to announce that we have launched some amazing new features on Swift Builder to make your experience not only better, but also improving the performance of your website and supercharge your SEO.
With that said, most of the SEO features are ones you will not see but will help improve your website performance, speed and tick a few more boxes for Google’s ranking algorithm.
You now have the ability to manage your own fonts, so you can import any fonts you require from Google Fonts and you are no longer restricted to our library of chosen fonts, although we must say that they are great! So now you can search through lots of fonts and add any that fit with your brand.
Editor design updates
We have updated the styling for the editor to make it even easier for you to see which elements are being edited:
- Header and Footer are highlighted in orange.
- Elements are highlighted in pink
- Columns are highlighted in blue
- Sections are highlighted in green
Image Gallery, Slider and Carousel
Adding galleries was always on our next list of items to do and we have smashed it out of the park with this update. You can now add an amazing gallery, carrousel or slider to your website whilst allowing your website visitors to click and view the images in a lightbox mode. A lightbox mode opens up the image over the website and allows website visitors to scroll through the image, these are great for portfolio images and showing off your work.
Multiple Snippets Of Code
We understand that trying to add multiple tracking codes into the header or footer of your site can be difficult and its hard to know which is which. We have created a function in your website settings where you can manage multiple snippets of code for things such as Google Analytics, Hotjar or your live chat service. You can easily name each item and either edit or remove them as you wish …. #WINNING.
You can now add overlays over images and videos for the background of your sections which makes it easier than ever, no more trying to add an overlay in Canva or Photoshop before uploading, do it directly on-site. Whether you want a single colour or a gradient, you can now make beautiful overlays to really bing out the style of your website. And if you want to change the image, simple, change the image and the overlay settings will remain in place.
Contact Form Data
We know the struggle when you misplace emails that come through your contact form and how hard it is to monitor how many form enquiries you are getting, well we now have the solution …. all of the form entries on your website are now saved in your dashboard which you can choose to keep or remove, its completely up to you. If any issues happen with your emails, be rest assured that Swift Builder have you covered.
Text Based Logos
We understand that some businesses simply don’t have a hi-res version of their logo, or indeed a logo at all if you are just starting out. With that in mind, we created the function for you to create your own text-based logo.
