2016AfBlgAffinoMetropolis700

 

This is primarily a quick Bug Fix release, but nonetheless it has some nice new features for responsive sites with the updated Site Search being the most anticipated as it now allows for reverse chronological searches with a greatly improved look and feel. We’ve also launched the new responsive newsletter sign-up page which has been keenly awaited.

 

More significantly in many ways, this release sees the v1 version or the Responsive Prime Related Content DE which will ...

Responsive Design in Affino - Update

2013CRZBlogResponsive7x480

 

We are right in the middle of rolling out Responsive Design in Affino and this post outlines many of the key decisions we have made, and why.

 

When researching approaches to implementing Responsive Design in Affino, we have been looking at existing tools such as Adobe Reflow and Webflow.

 

They have taken two opposite lines of approach. Adobe Reflow allows you to manipulate everything to the nth degree but makes the process very manual. It displays a grid, but it’s ...

Responsive Design in Affino

Responsive Design Image

We’re getting ready to move Affino to being fully responsive. This will be the major initiative over the coming months now that we have the auto-scaling cloud infrastructure in place.

Big Bang


There will be a switchover from the current way Affino page designs are created to a new responsive approach, like moving from analogue to digital.

We won’t have dual Design Centres in Affino at any point, it’s a one-off transition to the new Responsive Designs when you update to Affino...

The incredible utility of Affino Panels

2013CRZBlogAffinoPanels480

My favourite introduction in the Affino 7.1 release is something I have been campaigning after for a while - Panel Design Elements.

 

The versatility and utility of Panels in Affino is really quite remarkable, as you can combine any of Affino’s 80+ Design Elements into a separate Design Object - which can pop-up from any Button DE.

 

Several sites already have made use of a Login DE as a Panel on a login button - as you can also see top right on this site. In fact the top ...

We’ve been meaning to do this for a while, and it actually turned out to be a lot less painful than I had originally envisaged - but here it is! - a comprehensive ’Affino Design Elements Overview - featuring 76 of the 81 Design Elements currently available in Affino - including the 2 new Recruitment ones (’Job Search’ and ’Member Profile’).

 

I have managed to squeeze them all onto a single screen - and placed them in the position you would ...

Affino 6.0.15 Mindmap

This is a well rounded Affino release in that there’s something for all Affino users.

Shoppers will find the new optimised checkout to be simple, clear and fast; and store managers will find it is now much easier to set up and manage stores. Recruiters will love the new ...
