Catch up on the latest Pagecloud product updates. It's been a busy fall at Pagecloud with lots of updates focused on improving your website building experience and adding in some highly requested features. Here are a few of the highlights from the fall of 2021.
We just rolled out some new 1 page templates. These templates are intended to be simple starter sites, but can turn into so much more with your creativity. Create a new site or add the Sections anywhere on your existing site!
We’re sure you’ve seen your favorite influencers’ Link Tree in their Instagram or TikTok bio. A Link Tree is essentially a mobile friendly, one page website that allows you to display your list of links such as your social media platforms, websites, Amazon stores, e-commerce sites, etc. Now you can build your link page with more flexibility and customization using Pagecloud!

Note: Some features are restricted on a free plan, and Pagecloud Start pages include a Made in Pagecloud button.
Eyedropper color picker
If you use Google Chrome, a Pagecloud favorite, there is now a handy eyedropper color picker in the custom color mixer. Simply click the icon and sample a color from an image or anything else. So convenient! We hope you enjoy it.
Columns can now collapse to fit the height of their contents within full and fixed height Sections (full height sections dynamically stretch to fill the browser height). This can allow you to create some pretty nifty designs where the column(s) are anchored at the top, middle or bottom of the section.
It’s now much easier to swap out your icons for new ones. Icons now have a control strip that includes a 'Replace icon' button. You can click this button to select a new icon that will be the same size and style (color, shadow, etc.) as the one you’re replacing.
We added a lot more social media icons to the elements panel, so get your TikTok, Medium, Patreon, Twitch, Discord, Goodreads, Strava and more connected to your site! Find these in the elements panel in the Button category.
If you have an e-commerce plan you can now add Buy buttons and Product widgets to your pages. Use these to;

Pagecloud now applies Lazy loading to images, and video in iframes so these objects only load when they are needed allowing your pages to display even faster. Great for SEO and your visitors.
In addition to these updates we have addressed numerous bugs, refinements, and continued to invest in improvements to our infrastructure to provide you with fast and reliable websites.
We're so excited to see what you create with these new updates! As always, check out our blog for more on designing with Pagecloud.
