Our ecosystem has expanded significantly over the last couple of years. Thousands of exceptional custom websites have been built on Edicy. Most of them are crafted by our partners and freelancers from around the world.

One of the most requested features by a swarm of web developers has been the ability to alter the looks and components of individual pages and blog posts. For example to give each blog post a unique thumbnail or cover image. Or apply a different background image for any of the pages on a site. 

Example — "Drag and drop a cover image for Facebook posts here..."

Today we are happy to announce that this major update — custom data fields — has been released and available on all paid accounts. You can now bind any kind of data not only to entire site but also for each page or blog post separately.

Let's say you want to set a different background picture for each of your page. Before you had to create a new layout for every page to make it happen — or use extensive JavaScript. Now you can just set up a drop area for the background image in the template for the website owner. In addition, you can call it out anywhere on your website with a unique id. This way you can set a background picture for your article and display it also on your front page as a thumbnail or cover image. A perfect solution for photo blogs.

Example — website built with custom fields for blog cover images

The scope of possibilities is huge — unique background colors, Facebook post images and other OG-tags, text attributes, icons for menu items, configurable widgets like distance / price / tax calculators or Flickr galleries, page layout modulators etc. Go ahead, read our renewed API for more or jump straight to the examplesFeel free to contact us via support@edicy.com. We'd be really happy to help you get new flexible customer websites up and running.

    This is a great article. I am going to finish an associates in web development after I finish my associates in graphic design. Then I will transfer to a college that will accept most of my design credits so I can get a BFA in graphic design just so I can say I have a bachelors.
