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!
UPDATE Oct 20th 2017

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 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
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.
