Towards the end of last year we shared some of our plans for 2009 with everyone, including some specific features we were looking forward to implementing in the early months.
I am pleased to be able to share again some of the newest features added to the Point2 Agent software in a recent release earlier this week.
Cross-browser Compatibility: We have fully integrated the ability to access your Point2 Agent accounts using the browser of your choice. We have been working on introducing this feature for quite some time now – at our members’ request – and are happy to say it is finally available. Point2 Agent is now cross-browser compatible for:
- Internet Explorer 6-8
- Firefox 2-3
Remember, you’ll always receive a better browsing experience by using the latest version of your preferred browser. For further information visit the User Manual.
(Kudos to our very own Bryan Larson for prepping these icon knock-offs for your viewing pleasure.)
Improved Content Editor: We’ve upgraded the content editor for all Point2 Agent sites to one that includes more features and is extremely user-friendly. We are sure you’ll enjoy editing your website even more so now. Here’s just a few of the new features of the content editor:
- Anchors can be created directly through the editor
- Hex codes can be inserted for color
- Better HTML content generation
- The restriction of 800×600 image upload size has been removed
- Full screen editing capabilities
- Table tags are now outlined so you can easily see where they exist within the content
- Editor templating system allows you to choose a content layout template and replace it with your own content
Learn more about working with the new content editor in the User Manual.
Updated Photo Upload Tool: With the addition of cross-browser compatibility, we’ve also improved the way our members upload photos. For those using Internet Exporer, you can continue using PUFLITE. However for those using browsers other than Internet Explorer, you can now easily upload photos using our Java-based photo upload tool. In order to use the non-Internet Explorer photo upload tool, you will need to have the latest version of Java installed on your computer. (Download here: http://java.com/en/download/) Further detailed instructions on both methods of uploading photos can be found in the User Manual.
What’s coming?: We’ve got some big plans ahead for our members – and crazy-good improvements. I am so excited I can barely contain myself.
