New Feature - Quick Site Layout

INTRO
There is now a quick and easy way to edit Site Layout. For those new to Google Sites, the old way of things (which will be retired in due time) was to go to More > Manage Site > Site Layout. Then you would have to make changes, save, and see how those changes affected your website.

Here's what's new:

  • Under More you will see "Edit Site Layout   New!"
  • Site Layout can now be interactively changed.
  • Options are available: Header, Horizontal Nav, Sidebar, Footer.

IMAGES
Header options are available when you select header area. Even the Header background image. Very nice.



It's been a while since I saw New! used in connection with Google Sites.


Little edit and add buttons allow you to make a lot of changes on the fly.


CONCLUSION
Google Sites is receiving more of the attention it deserves. As my Google Sites designing and consulting business, Kirksville Web Design, I continue to see how company's are using Sites. This is an application that won't go the way of the dodo. Many organizations, even Google, are taking advantage of the easy web building space of Google Sites.

Also, this is a new aesthetic feature. It's not adding some new functionality like Google Docs charts or something. This makes it easy to change the look and feel of a website. Now if only I could change the Horizontal Navigation font size, then I would be really overjoyed. =)
