I got a tweet the other day asking if Accumulo supports photos in the RSS widgets. My answer, at the time, should have been no – but I had a couple of hours free – and so I got to work.
In the next two hours I added two new bits of functionality to the Accumulo theme.
- I extracted photos from RSS feeds in the RSS widget. These photos display in the tooltips that pop-up when you mouse over the feed items
- I added a brand new RSS feed widget. This widget displays the feed item titles as before, along with a short snippet of the item content and a photo if available.
At the weekend I also got a support query asking about advertising options in Accumulo – so I decided to add that in as well. The advertising options allow you to add adsense banners to the website above and below the page content. You can also optionally (and individually) turn them on and off, and you can override the adsense code with your own code should you wish.
These new additions continue to make Accumulo a powerful feed aggregation theme and you can see the functionality in action on the Accumulo demo site, or test it yourself on the Pro Theme Design preview site.
As normal all Accumulo customers can download updates from the accounts control panel.
