Current Ithaca College community members may contribute stories and comments as well as view additional topics by logging in.
Two exciting new features have been added to the Ithaca College Web Profile Manager (WPM).
The first is a tool that makes it easy for site visitors to share your news and blog entries via social media. With the click of a button a user can automatically share a link to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, via email, or through any number of additional social media channels such as Reddit or Pinterest.
The new AddThis tool appears just above the body copy of a news article or blog posting. A user simply clicks the corresponding icon for the social media outlet they want to share the story through, and the tool will generate a post for that user to share with their network.
The second feature is an improved photo gallery experience for users. Now when a visitor to your galleries clicks on a picture thumbnail, the image will open in a pop-out display while the rest of the screen fades slightly. Any photo captions will be overlayed at the bottom of the image. Users will be able to navigate through the gallery images individually with arrows, or start a slideshow to scroll through them automatically. Clicking anywhere off the image will close the pop-out display. This new presentation allows photos to be displayed at larger sizes on the screen and not be confined by the webpage template.
To see an example of the new gallery display, visit the Example of the New ‘Modern Gallery Layout’ page at the Office of Marketing Communications site.
