Update: 4.5.3 - Improved Email Subscribe Form Plugin

“How can we make things even easier for our publishers?” It’s a common question we ask ourselves here at Joomag. And this time the answer is easy.

Publishers can now assign any contact list they’ve created in the Awesome CRM™ to an Email Subscribe Form plugin. After readers complete the subscription form, they’ll be added to the assigned list automatically, without leaving the Crater™ Editor. Add new contacts to your lists from within your publication and keep them engaged with more personalized content. If that’s not convenient, we don’t know what is!

Check out the video below to see how it all works.

Bugfixes

  • Fixed: opening a new tab while viewing a magazine in Mozilla Firefox would cause the magazine to revert back to its cover page.

Update: 4.5.1 - Dynamic Printing Options, Handy Updates, and Bugfixes

Hungry? Great, because we’ve cooked up another appetizing batch of platform features.

Publishers now have access to even more printing options for their publications, in addition to some nifty discounts. The Crater™ Editor just got a whole lot easier to use, too, as image and video thumbnails are now correctly oriented in the user’s Library. Read on to find out why that’s great news for you.

New hard copy printing options and improvements

Joomag will now dynamically fetch all available printing options for your publications from its improved cloud print network. For example:

1. Hardcover books are now an available option.

2. New discounts can be applied to printing. That means lower prices for readers whenever they print a higher number of publications, or longer ones. Note: discounts are provided individually for each printing option type. Accordingly, some options may not have any discounts.

3. New blank and white printing options are now available.

Changed image/video previews to show their orientation

  • New hard copy printing options and improvements

Updates

  • Change image/video previews to show their orientation

Update: 4.5.0 - New Images, Scheduling Software and more updates come to Joomag

New iStock images in Crater™ Editor's library

Is more always better? With Joomag, the answer is “yes!” Brand-new images have been added to the Crater™ Editor’s already extensive library, courtesy of iStock. We believe in the power of options, so we’re giving you even more of them. Choose from millions of high-quality iStock images to include in your publications. We worked hard to bring these photos to our platform at incredibly affordable prices (only $2.99), and can’t wait to see how you use them.

Scheduled publishing

You’re committed to publishing your content on a consistent basis, but doing so can be a total nightmare without the right tools. Don’t let it. With Joomag’s brand new scheduling feature, you can set specific times and days to publish your content on. Use it alongside your content calendar to crush your goals in no time.


Improved selection tool

Working with images just got a whole lot easier. With Joomag’s new selection tool, it’s now possible to:

1) resize images without stretching or compressing them.

2) crop images right away. The crop icon will appear whenever an image is selected.


Extra email personalization

Users can now set custom "from" fields for campaign and system template emails. Emails will then be sent from that specific domain instead of Joomag, adding an extra layer of personalization to email campaigns. This nifty little feature is only available for Enterprise members.
