Skin Wasn’t Showing?

Saturday, April 10th, 2010

We were doing upgrades earlier today which may have caused your skin not to show up for a couple of hours. These upgrades helped to improve the site speeds and allows us to add cool new features. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

Updates, updates, updates!

We’ve just got done releasing a bunch of new features!

Ability to Move the Skin Builder
First, our most requested feature, you can now move the skin builder around on your page when customizing.  No longer will the skin builder get in the way when adding images and text.
To move the skin builder, click the top bar and drag it where you want.
move-skin-builder

Save Your Skins to “My Skins”
If you’re a registered user, you can now start saving every skin you create with the skin builder and/or choose from our skin gallery!  This is useful if you decide you want to create a skin and use it later, or if you want to go back and use a skin you’ve used in the past.
To save your skins, either navigate to Customize Page > My Skins and click “Save My Current Skin”, or open the skin builder and check the box next to “Save skin to My Skins”.  You should be prompted with a box to name the skin.

Submit Your Skins to the StartSkin’s Skin Gallery
If you’ve just created an amazing skin and want it displayed in the skin gallery for others to use, now you can!  Simply go to your “My Skins” area, then click the configure skin icon.

Once in the configure skin area, enter a few tags/keywords (separated by commas), then click the publish link.  Your skin will then need to be approved by an admin.

Let us know what you think about these new features and if you have any other ideas you’d like to see added!
