PageCloud automatically adds relevant Twitter Card Markup to your pages and blog posts so they look good when shared on Twitter.

PageCloud App: Speed Improvements

Our Engineering team has made significant changes to improve the speed and performance of the PageCloud App. The more sites and pages you have, the more noticeable the difference.

For example, page loading in the Editor and Dashboard are now up to 5x faster. 🏎️

Text Reflow

When the height of a text box changes, Text Reflow adjusts the vertical position of your content to maintain your design on both desktop and mobile.

Text Reflow activates when:

  1. You add or remove lines of text
  2. You change the font size associated with a text box

Note(1): if you select multiple text boxes with different styling, changing an attribute will override that attribute for all the selected text boxes.

Note(2): Changing text attributes will typically affect the height of a text box. This may require you to make vertical spacing adjustments.

How to set a password

Notes:

  1. Your password will be encrypted for your protection. Once saved, you won't have the ability to read or copy it.
  2. When you visit a password-protected page, your browser will ask for a Username and Password. The Username field can be left empty.
  3. If your browser remembers passwords, you won't have to re-enter the password when visiting a protected page for a second time.
  4. The Home page of a site cannot be password protected.
