Social Profiles, Visitor Forums, Personal Dashboards, Live Blogging,
E-books, your own mobile App - and much
Today: Imagine a blog
that works like a calendar: that´s Today. Publish anything
with it - Web Pages, movie clips, Facebook posts, Word Documents, PDF
files, images, Google Maps, Podcasts... Each one is a
card - part of a live stream that keeps itself up to
Each card has a timestamp, and will appear and disappear from the stream when you want it to. Cards can even repeat - display a particular movie clip every Sunday, a PDF every morning, or a Facebook post every day only in July.
Use Today to author what your
Homepage will look like on any given day, and set up all your days
months in advance - publish a curriculum, or perhaps a daily agenda,
or simply use it as a way to keep your Homepage fresh while you are on
The Today App: FirstMagic 3.2 comes with a Web App for Today. Visitors can just tap your Homepage to get it on their IOS or Android Homescreens: your Today in their pockets. The app installs right off your Homepage; no roundtrip to the AppStore necessary.
E-commerce: two styles of Shopping Carts are built in - choose between PayPal and FoxyCart payments processing. Accepting payments is now as easy as adding a normal web page.
WebStores: a WebStore is not necessary for accepting payments, but if you want to present many different products at once, the WebStore Layout does it for you - in a wide variety of styles and formats.
Books: the new Book Layout is like an eBook - with chapters and bylines in the Sidebar.
Forums: meeting space for your visitors: anybody can participate, whether they have a FirstClass Account or not.
Personal Dashboards: FirstMagic now has a personal Home Screen after Login - an overview of the pages you are working on, the WebStore Inventory, the Website Inbox, and all your subscriptions. Every user can customize it to fit their own workflow.
Social Profiles: put your byline on a page, and it will display a box with your photo, your social channels and contact points - even a live chat that will page you if a visitor opens it.
Theme Designer: Go on any page and design it just by pointing at elements - drop in background images and banners, change fonts, colors and styles, rearrange the layout - and see the results in realtime.
