Our team has upgraded the platform and moved all your content and site settings over to the newest version of VITA. Lots of changes are behind-the-scenes – you’ll notice a faster and easier VITA without having to learn anything new.
Members using the default CSS templates for their sites will see some display changes, as we’ve tweaked our code a bit. We’ve also introduced some new alternate styling
templates that take minimal time to set up and can drastically change the appearance and function of your VITA site!
- Faster and more responsive indexing
Changes and additions appear automatically on your public site.
- Better video uploads
And you can always embed a Youtube video!
- Sleeker CSS
VITA’s classic look is upgraded – plus some new looks to choose from.
- Responsive search & results screens
Options you don’t use are hidden on Advanced Search and results screens. Long results automatically hide and expand.
- Completely separate News from Images sites
No more overlap of content: it’s a clean break!
- Bug fixes and tweaks
- Search widgets
Existing ones still work, but you can’t add new ones.
- Mobile search
Your VITA site will look the same no matter what device you use, so we’ve done away with the special stripped-down version.
- FLV [Flash] video files
We’ve converted any FLV files to MP4 for you!
