Goodbye Templates, Hello Flexible Blocks!

New blocks for your Jimdo website

In case you haven’t heard, we’ve said goodbye to stiff templates and introduced flexible content blocks on your Dolphin website. Each block is ready-to-use and purpose-built to help accomplish your website goals. Ready to kick off your restaurant website? We’ve designed a simply laid out Menu block, so you can easily edit your dishes. Creating a band website? Use the Music block to quickly add your Spotify or iTunes playlist and bring in fans.

You don’t have to worry about whether your website looks good or know any web design principles. Just choose the block you need and we’ll make sure it looks great and attracts the right visitors. As the system learns over time, we’ll also be able to gather information in the creation process to add more custom-built features for your industry. So keep an eye out for new block options.

These are a few of the things we’ve been working on!

This is a product update for Jimdo Dolphin. Check out our newest website-builder here:

Double the fun with our duplicate function

Congratulations, you’ve got twins! We’ve now added a duplicate function on every block so you can save time and copy a previous block design. This helps you keep your overall website look consistent and saves you scrolling to check the exact layout you used two blocks up.

Promote your special offers with banners

Do you have a giveaway or a flash sale coming up? Advertise it on your website using the new banner blocks! You can use the banner blocks to highlight any latest offers or upcoming news and add calls to action. Or maybe you just want to break up your content with a banner image or video? You choose what works best for your website. The banners will grow along with your content! 

If you have happy customers, you can also use the banner blocks to accentuate some quotes.  Testimonials are a great way to spread the word! Just remember to ask your customer for permission first.
