Change Your Cover Photo Position

Untitled Project 25.gif

Your cover photo is awesome, but it's not quite in the right place to look as good as it could be. Today we upgrade the story editor yet again with position controls to help get your cover photo looking perfect. A much requested feature.

You can now choose to position your cover photo orientated to either center, left, right, top or bottom. A helpful for when you are using portrait or wide angle style photos for your cover.

You can find these new controls when you are in Edit Mode under Options → Display → Cover Photo Position.

This is just the start of these options and future versions of the feature will include more free from control.

⚠️ Scheduled Maintenance: Significant Infrastructure Upgrade

On Monday, February 25th, at 12 p.m. ET (9 a.m. PT), Exposure will have around 6 hours of scheduled maintenance for a significant server infrastructure upgrade.

Exposure will be unavailable during this time. Visitors will see a “We will be right back” page if they visit exposure.co, your stories, or your site.

You won’t be able to create or edit stories during this time, so we suggest making sure all drafts or changes you need to do are done before the scheduled time.

This server infrastructure upgrade comes with two main benefits. First, a significant speed increase across the service, and second, much improved redundancy to further prevent downtime. These are further upgrades to ensure that as Exposure grows all our system grows with it.

This upgrade will be seamless for you. No action is required, and your data will remain safe and secure. All systems will be operational after the maintenance period, so you can get back to storytelling.

We will work as fast as we can to ensure that service is not interrupted longer than necessary. If you have any questions, please reply and let us know via support@exposure.co

You can also subscribe to our system status updates to get reminded about scheduled maintenance here: https://status.exposure.co/

As always, thanks for being part of Exposure.

You can choose how menu builder links open via your Menu Builder Options here: https://exposure.co/settings/business-options/menu-builder

Big Improvements to Click Through Links and Photo Controls

We heard your feedback and adding a Click-Through Link to your photos is now easier and better than ever!

When you add a Click-Through Link URL to a photo in your story, it will now not only create an overlay of that link but also make the whole photo clickable. Feedback told us that the small link icon was not quite right and this update brings a true Click-Through Link experience.

You can add a Click-Through Link via the Lightbox as before. Then, you can see the overlay in action when you preview your story. We also polished the look and feel of the link input.

Controls for photos in a set have also been improved. You can now access the controls in top right of each photo (previously at the bottom). We also changed the indicators of whether a Click-Through Link is active or if the photo is currently being using fill the row.
