Product Update: News Articles

I’m excited to announce that we just launched expanded functionality for news articles that allow greater control over how your content is presented.

Before today, you were limited to posting text-based news articles.

The next time that you post a news article you will see our new WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor. This editor will allow you to do everything that you would expect including the ability to apply font treatments like bold and italics to your text. You can also align your text to the left, center, or right. Of course, you can adjust the font-size of your text, add bulleted or numbered lists, and insert hyperlinks. Best of all, we also added a spell checker.

In addition to the WYSIWYG editor, you can now upload documents and attach them to your news article. This can be helpful when you need to distribute information that you have in a PDF, DOC, XLS or PUB file. (Other file formats are also supported.) A screenshot of the new editor is below:

I want to give special thanks to a few heros at Level Five Solutions including Jenny Noone, Dustin Engelhaupt, Alex Martens, and Greg Stickley for getting this pushed out the weekend before Christmas.
