Beef Up Your Titles


Introducing a new feature to allow you to make titles bold in your FeedWind widgets.

You can now make titles bold so they more visible to your users and/or match your website styling. It was already possible to bold titles by using a custom CSS but we thought it would be useful to many of our users to have simple On/Off functionality in the setup screen.

You can find out how to style fonts in our tutorial which has information about this new feature and other information about font styling. You can check out the new feature now by logging into your account and checking out the updated setup screen.

Here’s a quick preview of the new setup options and where to find them:

MAIN TITLE BOLD STYLING

This is found in the Feed Title section > Advanced settings.

FEED ITEM TITLE BOLD STYLING

This is found in the Feed Content section > Advanced settings.

If you need any assistance to make titles bold or any other aspect of FeedWind, please contact us contact us and we’ll be happy to help out!


 

IMPORTANT UPDATE – DISPLAY ISSUES

UPDATE Oct 20th 2017

We have now corrected the error causing an incorrect container size for widgets. For new users, the problem will not present itself. Some existing users might still experience incorrectly-sized widgets. This can be resolved using the cache clearing method explained below, after which you should not experience this issue.

IMPORTANT NEWS Oct 17th 2017

Since a program change we made recently, you may notice your widgets are not displaying at full size (widgets are displaying at 115px x 115px). We apologize for any inconvenience.

The offending javascript causing this issue is in the code snippet:

[Applicable javascript file] https://feed.mikle.com/js/fw-loader.js

However, if you are visiting your site for the first time, or if your cache from your last visit has expired, there will be no display problems. This will automatically resolve when your cache is refreshed

To correct this manually, you can use either of these 2 solutions:

Solution 1

Clear your browser cache. You can do this by using:

Windows: “CTRL+F5”
Mac: “Command + R”

However, while you do not need to change any code, it is necessary for site visitors to clear their cache.

Solution 2

Assign parameters to javascript in the pasted code as shown below. This solution requires you to edit the code pasted on your site(s):

Specifically, it adds a parameter like ? Ver = 20171016 to the end of fw – loader.js as shown in the red letter below . The content of the parameter is optional.

<Script type = “text / javascript” src = “https://feed.mikle.com/js/fw-loader.js ? Ver = 20171016 ” data-fw-param = “5 /”> </ script>

If you have any questions about this matter, please contact us through our contact form .

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.

MARCH NEWSLETTER

The latest news and tips from the FeedWind team

This month we have been improving a number of aspects of Feedwind operation and features. We are focusing on extending Facebook widget features and upgrading our Pro subscription system. As always, we are increasing the support content available for users with new articles and an upcoming FeedWind blog.


NEW FEATURES FOR MARCH

Payment Automation Currently we activate Pro accounts manually which causes a delay in removal of the “Powered by FeedWind” branding and the dashboard update to allow 20 widgets to be saved.

We know this has occasionally been an inconvenience to some of our users (and apologize to any affected), so we are implementing an automated system for new Pro users.

With this update, activation will be automatic and applied as soon as the subscription has been made. Facebook Horizontal Scroll We released horizontal scroll for RSS widgets in February – a great hit with our RSS widget users.

This month we are adding horizontal scroll functionality to our Facebook widget too. Share your Facebook feed in a slideshow using a FeedWind horizontal feed widget!  You can stay up to date with the latest information on feature releases by visiting our Facebook page.


COMING SOON

On the near horizon is support for Google Calendar, a long-awaited release which should be available during April.Our new blog  In the next week or so we are releasing our new blog (this article is on it) which will contain handy tips and tricks, Feedwind news and other resources to help our users get the most out of Feedwind and their RSS feeds.
