We released new and updated design templates this week. They may look very similar to others, but there’s some goodies under the covers.

For example, this new 3 panel design template offers a 16:9 image area, extended weather forecast on the left, RSS on the bottom, and logo on the bottom right.

Take a look at the new options available in the Advanced section:

Advanced Settings

  • Image Duration.  The image is the focus of this design template and this advanced setting allows you to set the playback duration for the image.  For example, setting the image duration to 60 seconds will display the image for the full 60 seconds while the weather and RSS content update throughout the 60 second duration.
  • Weather Item Duration.  This design template provides the extended weather forecast.  This is a seven day forecast with high and low temps for each day.  This advanced setting controls the duration of each day in the forecast.
  • RSS Item Duration.  This design template will play up to 15 RSS items.  This advanced setting controls the duration of each RSS item.
