Jimdo Users on stage!

Besides the new look of our website, something else has changed substantially: In order to present yourself best and in order to search for other Jimdo-pages, you'll find a new search feature on www.jimdo.com. Previously, you could only view the most popular Jimdo-Pages - and now we have added to and improved a search function so that you can search through all Jimdo-Pages based on: keywords, similar pages, most popular pages, newest pages, JimdoPro pages or random.

How to increase your chances of being found by others? That's easy: Edit your tags in your "Jimdo Account". Type in keywords that fit the content of your Jimdo page, and your page can easily be found and admired by others...

What else? You can subscribe to the RSS-feed of the newest and most popular Jimdo-Pages, furthermore you can keep track of the Jimdo ranking (this is the grey-colored figure next to the Jimdo page) - if that`s something that inspires you!

Big Development -- Integrate your own design into your Jimdo-Page!

Starting now, you can use your own design for your Jimdo-Page. That means that you can not only personalize the content, but also the appearance, of your Page. Cool, huh?

In order to use this feature, all you need is basic knowledge of HTML and CSS. Paste your code into "Layout">"own layout," integrate Jimdo elements like Sidebar, Navigation, etc. with a click, upload your layout photos - finished!

The integration of your own layout - unlike we stated earlier - is also available through JimdoFree. We simply decided to give everyone the opportunity to use their own design!

This development is somewhat complex - in this initial phase, small problems could emerge. We aren't even aware of any so it would be a great help if you could send us any mistakes you come across to our support team at support@jimdo.com! Thanks!

 

By the way, we're now the only website building platform world wide that allows you to integrate your own design. As you can tell, we're a little proud :) Now we're excited to see what designs you integrate into your Pages!
 
Pages to the People!
Your Jimdo Team

JimdoPro users get their own E-mail account!

Good news to all users of JimdoPro: At last, when you sign up for JimdoPro we can now offer you your own email account in addition to your own domain. That means you'll be able to use the email address name@username.com. This great new extra does not only offer you great benefits - it also provides some technical features.

  • It supports both POP3 and IMAP
  • Webmail access is through https://webmail.jimdo.com. Here you can set up additional features: Contacts, Calendar, Feed reader, etc.
  • Out-of-office-reply (very useful while you're on vacation...)
  • Substantial spam filtering and virus scanning

Of course, all existing JimdoPro users can install their own email account - just send an email to support@jimdo.com - we'll attend to this directly!

Extend your navigation with the third navigation level!

We're pleased to present a newly-added feature for your Jimdo-Page: the third navigation level. If you add this feature, visitors of your homepage can read through your Page via a more complex navigation bar.

In order to set up your third navigation level, just click on "settings" and then just activate the third level within the add-ons. You can include your third navigation level at once. It's so easy!
