Getting Started with TabSite and Facebook Timeline Webinar



Here is information discussed during our March 14 Webinar:


VideoShow Now has Auto-Scroll of Videos

TabSite is pleased to announce a new addition to the VideoShow widget enabling users to set the videos in the show to auto-scroll to grab users attention and to quickly showcase all videos available for viewing.

VideoShow_icon.pngThe VideoShow widget has always allowed Silver and Gold Plan TabSite users the capability to setup a series of YouTube videos that users can scroll through to see a description of, then select and play in-line on the fan page.  Now with the new enhancement, fan page Admins using TabSite can setup the VideoShow videos to auto-scroll at a set interval across the page. 

This feature helps grab the attention of the visitor and enables them to quickly see there are multiple video options.  The arrow functions to go left and right are still active for the user, enabling them to have power to review the videos of their choice while the auto-scroll draws them in and quickly shows them the videos available for viewing.

A key benefit of the VideoShow widget for your fan page is the ability to pick specific videos to add to the list rather than showing your full YouTube Channel.  Each can have a unique description customized you the Page Admin or use the YouTube description with one-click import.

Now with auto-scroll, the VideoShow widget has even more customization power to enable you to showcase your best videos!

See it live on our fan page!



VideoShow is available at the Silver and Gold TabSite Plan levels.
