What's New in Websites + Marketing?

We’re excited to keep getting better all the time. Check in here or in the Community once a month or so to learn all of the newest features in the last few months.

Add a beautiful quote to your site (September 2021) Quotes are a great addition, whether for testimonial reasons or just to inspire your site’s visitors. We’ve made it easier than ever to add a quote using the Quote section. Add a Quote section under General.

Add your podcast episodes to your site (September 2021) Are you a podcaster? Podcasts are a great way for people to get to know you.

Add a Podcast section under Audio & Video. Add your Feed URL and choose between seeing the latest episode or multiple episodes.
