It’s a new year, and we’re excited to kick it off with some fresh updates for SeedProd that provide even more flexibility as you design your websites. Today, we’re pleased to announce tablet display options, teaser videos, and a host of new site kits for various niches.
If you’re in a hurry, check out the announcement video below for a quick overview:
Otherwise, keep reading for the full details of our new year update.
Control Your Web Design on Tablets
Our first new feature is something a lot of users have asked for: Tablet Breakpoints.
A breakpoint is a signal that tells your site how to adjust its layout for different screen sizes. With a tablet breakpoint, you can change how your site looks on tablets to deliver the best experience for visitors.
We understand how crucial this is for not only designing but also previewing your designs on tablet screens, and with this new feature, you can see how they look on tablets as well as smartphones and desktop devices.
We’ve pushed this a notch further inside our blocks. Now, you’ll see an additional option to customize the alignment, typography, and spacing just for tablet devices.
This means you can alter your designs to display differently on tablets compared to desktops and mobile devices. It’s like having 3 different versions of your site, each tailored to specific screen sizes.
For example, you could have large headings across 4 lines on desktops but have visitors on tablets see much smaller headings on just 2 lines. This allows you to maximize space on the screen while ensuring visitors won’t need to scroll as much.
Additionally, you can hide specific blocks from showing on tablets. So, if a section, row, or block is too distracting for tablet viewers, you can hide it for that device.
Need some ideas on how to use tablet breakpoints on your website? We’ve got you covered:
- News and Blogging Sites: Adjust article layouts, font sizes, and image placements to make reading articles on tablets more comfortable and engaging.
- Restaurant Websites: Modify menu displays and online reservation systems for tablets, providing an optimal browsing experience for customers.
- Real Estate Listings: Customize property photos, virtual tours, and listing details to display effectively on tablets.
Upgrade Video Popups with Teaser Previews
Another exciting feature we’ve released is an addition to the Video Popup block: Teaser Videos.
Now, you can grab attention immediately by enabling the Teaser Video toggle in your block settings. Your chosen video will naturally play in the background, audio-free, creating an engaging way to draw in your audience.
But it doesn’t stop there; on clicking the play button, your video restarts with audio and video controls, allowing viewers to watch the entire video at their own pace.
Alongside this is the ability to show a banner with a custom icon and text.
It’s an ideal way to invite users to click and watch your video in full.
We can think of so many ways to use this feature, it wouldn’t be fair to keep them to ourselves. So, here are some suggestions for using teaser videos to engage your audience:
- Product Launches and Demonstrations: Create anticipation for new products with silent teasers, then reveal in-depth demonstrations or features when users click.
- Event Promotions: Generate excitement for upcoming events with teaser clips. This approach is perfect for webinars, workshops, or conferences, offering glimpses that encourage users to discover more.
- Special Offers: Highlight promotions or special offers through teasers, enticing viewers to click through for the full details of the deal.
Your Language: Covered
