Since the initial release of Alloy v3.0 I've shipped several incremental updates with improvements, bug fixes, as well as some new features, too. I'd like to take a few minutes to touch on some of those improvements as well as to talk about a new feature that is in the works for Alloy v3.1. Let's start off with some of the new features we've added ...


In Alloy v3 we have a few different areas within our Editor backend on our site. Each area is focused on a different type of content. We have Blog Posts, Embeds and Droplets, each with their own list view within the Editor.

We can move from area to area using the Editor's Utility Menu in the bottom right corner of the page. It contains a link ...

I hear you saying to yourself right now -- "Wait I thought ...

Day One

For our first day of previews let's dive right into things with Alloy's brand new Embeds tool! While Alloy's mainstay has long been blogging, we've now incorporated an easy-to-use set of tools to allow you to embed content within your RapidWeaver projects. That embedded content can then be edited directly from your website using the same Alloy Editor ...
