These days, websites without background videos run the risk of appearing old-fashioned. Even dinosaurish,
There’s nothing wrong with dinosaurs, or with looking like one. Dinosaurs are cool. Unless they’re chasing you of course.
But our new background videos have landed, exploded and changed the game. They have wiped out the old standards for beautiful websites, and have replaced them with a new standard that will leave all other websites looking like fossils.
Luckily, both our existing clients and our new ones have access to this brilliant new feature we’ve introduced, and we’d like to share its benefits with you today.

When July 2018 hits, Google Chrome will make sure a strong warning will pop up on any website that has not yet updated from “http” to “https”. The warning will include something along the lines of “Website Not Secure”. Here’s how to avoid it.
This is a long knowledge paper but the information here is very powerful.
This knowledge papaer has now been total superseded by the new DotGO website builder software. The new tools provide a simple, elegant and responsive approach to laying our website content.
Achieving the effect you want from your webpage can often seem difficult and you may find yourself wondering why things don’t always look as you expect. However, the best looking websites use tables with invisible borders to layout content. The table management dialogues in our editor are very powerful and will help you to create amazing effects.
We recommend starting with a blank page layout and insert a table with a number of rows and columns suitable for what you are trying to achieve. It is easier to create a few little tables than 1 big complicated table .
To add a table click the table icon on the editor and a table dialogue box will appear.
With the table created you can then go about adding the words and pictures to the cells.
Initially, you may find that the cell widths expand or contract dramatically. But as you start to enter information the columns will automatically size to fit the content entered.
The options are self explanatory but the two most powerful properties are worth a little extra explanation:
Cell padding is the distance in pixels from the edge of a table cell to where the content of that cell starts. Cell spacing is a measure of how far apart the cells of a table are.
When deciding on the width of the table that you want to use you may not know the exact size of the editable area and so an exact value in pixels is difficult to gauge. To overcome this you can use the percentage drop down. A value of 100% ensures that the table occupies all of the editable width available. This is very handy if you later change you design to be wide or narrower. The table width will adjust itself automatically.
You may wish to modify the table settings later. The easiest way to do this is to right click inside the table within the editor. You will see the following menu bar:
There is lots of extra formatting functionality here that is worth experimenting with. You will soon realise that cell colouring and structural changes will give you more formatting options than you ever thought possible.
When you add an image to a table cell, the table cell will always be forced to be at least this width. Therefore, if you put large images in table cells you can force the table to be wider than the template allows. This will cause your webpage to be corrupted.
