Axero Solutions rolls out new content widget for fast and easy homepage customization in the Communifire social networking platform. The new tool displays news items from across different spaces and content types in an engaging format, but requires no additional programming and no complex queries.
(San Diego, CA, USA) – May 16, 2013 – Axero Solutions, an established technology leader in the enterprise social collaboration and networking marketplace, announced a new content presentation widget for its signature social collaboration platform, Communifire. The sophisticated tool makes it easy to share news and featured content from multiple sources, without the necessity for extraneous technical programming. The result is more effective sharing of interesting, engaging information to facilitate meaningful communication and inspire greater collaboration across diverse communities.
“Homepage design has always been flexible within Communifire,” explains Vivek Thakur, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Axero Solutions. “But our new widget expands on that flexibility by offering unique ways to filter and prioritize content and news that happens through the community. Adding this convenient and powerful widget is another way that Axero Solutions makes it easier for our customers to leverage the power of Communifire with highly customizable yet really simple and easy options.”
The tool is great for keeping members of online communities informed about what is happening in parts of the community where they may not be active participants, and it can also serve as a corporate information hub for a social intranet. News items for employees from different departments can, for example, be co-located with “top resources” that attract people back to the page for increased exposure to company news and culture.
Features of the new widget include the ability to set a few simple parameters to control which groups are included along with how content is sorted and sourced. Sorting options include most recent, highest rated, most commented, and most viewed. Content can also be filtered to show only content that is designated as appropriate for the homepage.
Once the parameters are set the information can be styled and laid out on the page to suit the design preferences of the community. Latest news articles, each with its featured image, can rotate in a carrousel if desired, for example, and top-rated content across all or a selected number of content types can be listed with or without photos. Most viewed photos can also be presented, to add additional color and excitement to a page.
