App vs. snippet – what’s the difference?
You may currently use the snippet widget via the Insert tab to add third party code to your sites. Some third party features are not possible to embed using the snippet widget with the standard embed code provided by them. Apps provide a solution to this and can be added without embed code at all – rather, with a URL or simply a username.
Additionally, we have included customisation options to some apps, enabling you to change the colour and style of the app directly through the editor. Apps also consume far less server resources, which brings the added benefit of faster loading times compared to the original snippet widget!
What we’re working on…
Apps to be released in the next few weeks include:
- Facebook Comment – Comment box for visitors to post using their Facebook account.
- Facebook Page
- MailChimp – Newsletter signup form.
- Wufoo – Customisable form.
- PhotoSnack – Photo slideshow.
- Twitter Timeline
We will be continuing to add new apps to the editor and would love your feedback on these, plus suggestions for future releases. If you have any comments, please add them to our feature request area here.
