Twitter Add-Ons

Hello, Tripod members:

We wanted to let you know that as of tomorrow, June 11th, Twitter has deprecated the version of the API Tripod has been accessing. 

Tripod is in the process of rolling out the newly integrated Twitter API today.

Why should this matter to you?  Because if you have a Twitter add-on running on your website, you will need to make some updates to it in order to have it work properly.  

What do I have to do?  Tripod members will need to update their Twitter modules per the instructions in their Twitter add-on editing panel.  Please log into your Tripod account and locate your Twitter add-ons and update them by following the instructions within the add-on itself.

You can learn more about this change here

Thank you for your patience.

Updated look and feel on Control Panel and Beta Website Editor

Within the next week, we will be releasing some changes on Tripod and we wanted to give our members a sneak peak so you wouldn't be surprised when it comes out! 

Tripod's New Control Panel 

Do not worry: No core functionality is changing - you will be able to do everything you can do today on your Control Panel.  We've simply reorganized it in a way to use page space more efficiently, as well as including more information about all of the different things you can do with the Tripod service! Specifics include:

  •  More Streamlined Domain Management Tools
  •  Consolidated Account information section
  •  Easily Accessible Tripod social media sites
  •  Updated Announcements Section

Tripod's New Control Panel Design

Pages and Site Tab Merge in Site Editor

We have also made some changes to the our beta site editor in an attempt to simplify the experience.  

We currently have tabs for "Pages" and "Site" within the editor.  We are merging those two tabs and calling the one tab "Manage." If you want to add/remove pages, change tracking codes, update site keywords, and site descriptions, this is the tab you where will do these actions.

Thank you for you continued membership!

Featured Friday: North Star Tavern
Topic: Featured Friday

Businesses make up most of the published Tripod sites so we always love highlighting the great work done by our members on their own business sites. North Star Tavern is a great example of how to create an enticing and attractive website for a restaurant.







The folks at North Star Tavern used one of our most popular styles, Coffee Smoked, and made it look like it was made specifically for them. Tying in the colors of the background into their header graphic, the site looks very professional. Creating a header banner in a program like Photoshop can instantly boost the overall image of your website. Putting photos of the tavern as well as contact information was a great way for North Star Tavern to put their most imporant info front and center without putting it all in body of their website which could either get lost or look too word-heavy. 


Check out the rest of the North Start Tavern's website at NorthStarTavern.com!

Featured Friday: Cruz Roja Chilena
Topic: Featured Friday

Today's featured website comes from Chile. The Red Cross is a global humanitarian organization, and the Filial Concepción is just one of the chapters of the Red Cross.





Fun tip: if you don't speak Spanish, you can open this page in Google Chrome and it will ask you if you want it to translate the page for you!


The website is beautifully designed with a great use of multiple add-ons.They used a basic theme and made it look crisp and clean (and the red accents match the Red Cross perfectly!).


Take a look at cruzrojaconcepcion.tripod.com - even if you don't speak the language, you will be able to see the passion and dedication that went into building the site!

Featured Friday: Boston Dance Company
Topic: Featured Friday

Tripod is located right outside of Boston so whenever we come across a local member site, we get really excited! This week we are featuring the Boston Dance Company's website.



The Boston Dance company has been around since 1992 and has been teaching promising dancers of Boston and New England classical ballet. Every year the Boston Dance Company puts on a rendition of the Nutcracker, a favorite holiday ballet. The company is currently holding auditions for the productions, so if you're in the area and are a skilled dancer, or know one, audition for the ballet yourself!


BDC has a great website - it is easy to navigate and provides the visitor with plenty of information. The style that the company chose to use matches well with their own logo, making the website look complete. You can check out BDC's website at bostondancecompany.net.
