Easy Customizer and Amazon Payments – April 30, 2009
We’re thrilled to announce the release of two of our most requested features: Easy customization SmugMug sites and SmugMug subscription without a credit card.
Our brand spankin’ new Easy Customizer empowers SmugMug’s Professional and Power subscribers to completely change the look and feel of their SmugMug site with a few clicks. No code wrangling required. Find it in your Control Panel on the Customize tab.
Our advanced customization options are still alive and well, for those who do want to dive into code or need to tweak specific galleries… but now the rest of us can still get the look we want without breaking a sweat.
Things to know:
- The Easy Customizer allows complete removal of SmugMug’s footer for Pro subscribers, even the “Powered by SmugMug” bit.
- You’ll see a real-time preview in the Easy Customizer, so you can see how it plays with any advanced code you had previously entered.
- The Start Over button gives you several options for dialing back changes.
- There’s an ongoing discussion over at Digital Grin.
New SmugMuggers can now pay for their SmugMug account by choosing Amazon Subscriptions on the signup page instead of entering a credit card. To go this route, you’ll need to set up an Amazon Payments account and provide either your credit card information or your bank account information to Amazon. If you sign up this way, all future upgrades and renewals will be handled through Amazon Subscriptions as well.
Our apologies, if you already have a paid SmugMug account, you cannot (yet) switch over to Amazon Subscriptions.
