What’s new in Column?
The newest blueprint in the BookingSuite family brings with it new and improved features.
- Article Tree
Marketing > Galleries > Article Tree
Article Tree allows you to nest content in collections to improve information architecture. Good for blogs! Article Tree also allows for an article to be designated as a “landing page” to be used as a summary of the information that can be found on deeper pages.
Homepage Slideshow Captions
Marketing > Galleries > Homepage > Slideshow
Add a caption with an optional link to enrich the homepage slideshow. Each photo can have it’s own, but keep the captions similar in length (20-40 characters at most!).
Article header images and text
Marketing > Galleries > Article Tree > Article Summary
Add a hero image to an article to create visual interest. Add an optional caption with the title of the article.
*Turning the “Show Subnav” setting to “off” is helpful in creating a campaign landing page.
- Sticky Navigation
As users scroll, an abbreviated navigation bar stick to the top of the window, keeping your logo, menu button, and Reservation button visible at all times.
- Amenities and Reviews pages and widgets.
Booking.com partners will have the option to include an Amenities page on their website. This content is brought over from Booking.com so it will reflect what you presently have on that site. It can be edited in the Booking.com extranet if you wish to make changes. Control the widget under Marketing > Galleries > Homepage > Widgets and turn the page on or off under Marketing > Channels > On Web.
Want your Booking.com reviews on your website? You can control if you’d like this content to appear under Marketing > Channels > On Web.
Please remember after all updates have been made and saved, you will need to publish. You can do this if you go to Marketing > Publish and click Publish Now so that the changes will be reflected onto your live website.
