Good afternoon all
The latest website update was deployed over the weekend and has now been received by all Practices, this update contains the following changes/additions:
New – NHS Choices “Find local services” widget – NHS Choices have recently redeveloped all of their ‘syndicated content’ feeds to make it easier for developers to embed these tools in to their websites, and I personally think they look great.
Addition – ‘favicon’ – We have added a simple logo (blue square with white cross inside) which is shown when the Practice websites are bookmarked in a browser or saved on the home screen of a mobile device.
Amendment – The ‘Customisable Options’ menu has been renamed ‘Customise your Website’
Amendment – The ‘Sidebar Features’ submenu has been renamed ‘Coloured Tiles’
Amendment – The Coloured Tiles page has been updated to make the fields more ‘visual’, it is now easier to see what tiles are enabled/disabled and can easily be toggled using new buttons rather than a checkbox. The enable/disable field is now visible when the tile options are shrunk where previously only the tile title field was visible. You are also now able to set a different colour for text and icons on Additional Tiles.
New – NHS Choices A-Z Conditions widget – We have created a new tile (situated between the Core and Additional Tiles) for the new NHS Choices Conditions widget, which when clicked loads the widget in a pop-up where site users can find articles on any condition that is available on the NHS Choices website. This tile is disabled for all active Practices as of 9th March 2018 (simply because some Practices have created their own tiles for this which link to the page on the NHS Choices website and I didn’t want to amend this without prior permission) so it will need enabled via Customise your Website > Coloured Tiles. Any new Practices who sign up after this date will have the tile enabled by default.
