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.

One of the most requested features, blog post tags are now available on every website in Edicy. With tags you can systematize your posts, group similar ones under one unifying marker — a tag.

For example, mark blog posts about your recent design discoveries with 'design' and 'inspiration' tags or use 'design' and 'people' tags if your post is about your favorite designers.

Tag blog posts in Edicy

If you have a website with custom design, tags aren't automatically opened up for you as we have no authority to change your template. But with your permission, we can update your site in a blink of an eye. Just drop us a line at support@edicy.com.
Have you ever worried that one of your sub contractors working on your site will accidentally change subscription or site design without your approval? Well, worry no more. We've just introduced editor and site owner roles in Edicy.

Edicy allows collaborative website building and editing.

Editors can do only things that Edicy is intended to do — edit site content and nothing more. They do not have an option to manage subscriptions or domains. This means that they also won't receive renewal notifications from us — which, in turn, is gentle on their inboxes.

From now on, every person added to your site will be in editor role by default. To change one's role, just click on "Edit" link next to the person's card in the people screen and click on "Make account owner" link on the right-hand side of person's edit screen.
