πŸ“£ Add Buttons Anywhere in Your Story

Buttons can help call your readers to action for things like learning more, purchasing a product or even donating to a cause. With this update you have the new ability to add buttons anywhere in your Exposure stories in just a few clicks, no code required.

To add a button simply highlight the words you want to use, add a link using the πŸ”—icon then select the new Button style πŸ“icon next to the link icon.

You will need to make sure your link is added before the button style will appear.

You can remove the button style by highlighting the the same word and clicking the button icon again and you can include as many buttons as you like.

Previously you could only add one button to the footer of your story as a Business subscriber. Adding buttons anywhere in your story is available for any plan. The Footer Button feature for stories has been retired for this new and improved option.

πŸ’» Add a Site Wide Call to Action Button

With the new Site Call To Action feature you can add a clear and present button in all the right places across your Exposure site and stories to prompt readers to visit a URL of your choice.

This might be to visit your print store, donate to your cause or book you for a shoot. What ever your goal might be, this feature will come in handy.

The button will appear in the head of your site and in the footer of your stories.

The Call to Action Button manager can be found in your Site Preferences in Settings and is available for Pro Plus and above subscribers β†’ https://exposure.co/settings/preferences

πŸ€– Bot Check for New Mailing List Subscribers

We are always working to make Exposure a safe and spam free home for you to focus on your storytelling. Today we are rolling a reCAPTCHA (powered by Google) step to prevent bots from adding their pesky bot self to your new stories mailing list. This is an automated change and requires no set up.

Embedding an Instagram video or photo with just the URL is now fixed. No need to grab the entire embed code from the Instagram page and use the Custom Code view.

Thanks for your patience on this one!

πŸ’‘Toggle the Photo Lightbox in Your Stories

To add even more creative control we have launched a toggle to disable the photo Lightbox in your stories. We heard your feedback that in some cases the Lightbox can take a reader out of the narrative.

Disabling the Lightbox will prevent visitors from clicking or tapping a photo to see it in more detail. This will apply to any photo in your story.

You can find this toggle under "Display" via your Story Options. To see it in action enter preview mode once you have made the change. While in edit mode you can still open a photo in detail to add captions to a clickthrough link.
