Website Features

Website Features offered at QUICK ON THE NET

The best way to discover our website features is to see them in action by using our free trial. This demonstration website highlights a lot of the new features we have launched recently and please visit our web templates page to get a feel for the vast range of colours and styles we have on offer.

Each website created at QUICK ON THE NET is provided with the internet service features listed below:

Site Search

Every website at QUICK ON THE NET is provided with a search box. This internet service feature will allow visitors to perform a search on your website, searching through all of your web pages and all of your gallery items.

This search feature is fully automatic and you don't need to do anything to make it work.

Message Streamer

Message Streamer

This is a ticker-tape message streamer service for your home page. You can edit the text content of your message streamer to suit your needs, or turn it off if you wish.

Home Page Password Option

You can choose to put password on the home page of your site. You would do this if you wanted to make your website private, and therefore not viewable to the public.

This is separate from the username and password you will receive to access your website toolkit, which you will use to log in and update your website.

Email a Link

This feature will help to spread the word about your new site. It allows your website visitors to automatically forward an email link to your website to their friends and colleagues.

Visit Counter Service

How popular is your site? This feature will count the number of visits to your website. It operates on the small footer bar and you have the option to turn this feature off. Please see the 'No Footer Bar' Upgrade if you wish to remove the visit counter from the bottom of your site.

Free of charge, you can also use Google Analytics and Google Webmaster Tools for more advanced information about your website visitors.

Social Media Features

Social Media

We offer full social media support within our website service and site builder toolkit. We deliver this functionality in a simple user-friendly manner for you and your website visitors.

Social Media Privacy and Safety

The world's leading providers of social media platforms have been involved with a lot of high-profile scandals concerning privacy and data sharing.

We would like to point out that our social media technology is non-invasive, safe, secure and easy to operate.

We would also like to emphasise that the social media features we provide do not post anything on your Facebook wall, your Twitter page or any of your other accounts.

Social Media Website Integration

Unique to your website, you can easily integrate your website with your existing social media accounts e.g. your own Facebook page, your Twitter Feed, your YouTube Channel etc.

All you need to do is insert the URL to your social media account pages and select an icon for each account.

The social media icons are presented within a solid coloured bar. You choose the colour and you can also control the alignment and position of the icon bar. Colourful and simple, this feature will add a new dimension to your website and it can also help to boost the popularity of your website on search engines.

Social Media Icons

Social Media Page Sharing

Social Media Share Icons

At the click of a button, all your web pages have social sharing for Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, and Google+.

This new feature is actually immediately available to you, even if you are not yet using social media technology yourself.

Mobile Phone Browsers

Mobile Phone Optimisation

Your new website created at QUICK ON THE NET is fully optimised for mobile phones without you even having to think about it.

Your new site is actually optimised for mobile/cell phones, iPads and tablets, along with the largest desktop computer monitors and laptop screens.

The website pictures and contents will automatically adjust and resize to fit the device you are using. In other words, pictures which appear large when viewed on a big computer screen will automatically reduce in size and adjust to fit the screen on a mobile phone browser. Similarly when the screen area is reduced in size on a smaller device, the menu system will collapse into an expandable drop-down menu.

Responsive Design for Every Screen Size and Shape

What is responsive website design? A responsive website will automatically adapt to fit the device you are viewing the website on.

This means small screens or the largest monitors, viewed in landscape or portrait mode, high resolution or low resolution, it doesn't matter, we've got this covered.

The website pictures are also automatically optimised for mobile phone display. In other words, pictures which appear large on your website when viewed on a computer will automatically reduce in size and expand to fit the mobile phone display.

Running In The Background

The mobile technology described above automatically above runs in the background without you having to plan for it.

In other words, just create your new website for a laptop or computer monitor and the mobile phone display will automatically take care of itself behind the scenes.

Flexible Gallery Presentations

After you have uploaded your pictures and created a gallery, at the click of a button, you can create different styles of gallery presentation.

In the toolkit, we provide arrows which allow you to sort your gallery images into a preferred sorting order.

Feature Panel Gallery

Example: Feature Panels

This is a new way of displaying your image gallery. Any web page on your website can have 'Feature Panels' and they appear on screen using an animated effect.

Carousel Gallery

Example: Carousel

A picture 'Carousel' is sometimes described as a 'slide show' or a 'slider' and it is created using large pictures which sweep across the screen.

You have the option of creating a 'link gallery' and then each 'Carousel' picture will click through a link destination of your choice, including links to external websites, if you wish.

Thumbnail Gallery

Example: Thumbnail Gallery

We automatically provide a collection of small thumbnail pictures at the bottom of the screen. You can use the thumbnail pictures to navigate between each large gallery picture.

List Gallery

Example: List Gallery

This style of gallery works particularly well as a product shop or a job board listing. Miniature gallery pictures are presented in a vertical listing and each picture clicks through to a large picture and gallery item detail page.

Link Gallery

At the click of a button, any gallery can be presented as a link gallery, whereby each gallery picture has a hyperlink.

For each hyperlink, you can choose to link to a new browser window, or stay within the same browser window.

Your website toolkit is used for designing your website and also updating the website contents.

When you log in for the first time and you start to design your website , most of the creative design work takes place in 'Upload' and 'Style' and 'Setup'. These features will allow you to create your overall website colour scheme and add your uploaded pictures.

After you have finished your website design project, when it comes to updating the contents in your website, most of the routine updates will take place in 'Pages' and 'Galleries'.
