Extra website incentives at no extra cost
Some images are so detailed they need to be viewed in large sizes. However, placing large images on webpages takes up too much space and makes navigation difficult. Think Start Build Image Viewers display large images in a manageable and useful size on webpages, yet allow users to enlarge images in a temporary window with a single click.
Use Think Start Build Photo Galleries when you want to display many images at once in a similar size. Photo Galleries combine the zoom in temporary window features of Image Viewers with the next and previous navigation features of Slideshow Players. Website visitors enjoy the convenience of viewing everything at a glance, yet can click on any image to zoom it larger and then click on next and previous buttons to see other images too. Advanced options for Photo Galleries include sizing, cropping, captions, links, and more.

They support almost any type of file up to 100MB (megabytes) in size. Best results are obtained using universal file types such as PDF for documents, MP3 for audio, and MPG for video, but common file types such as DOC for documents, PPT for presentations, and XLS for spreadsheets are an alternative since many programs can open them for viewing.

Think Start Build packages include a specific number of website pages so Additional Pages allows adding more pages when desired. Each extra page works like the others so they can include standard package items or optional enhancements. The total number of pages that can appear in a website’s menu is determined by the design and often limited to seven pages or less before requiring the Think Start Build Navigation Menus to support larger websites.
Think Start Build Navigation Menus groups pages and displays them below a website menu item. This helps to organize pages into related groups to help visitors navigate a website. Use Navigation Menus with Additional Pages to support large websites that would otherwise outgrow the number of pages that can appear on their menus.
Gather the information you want from website visitors with Think Start Build Custom Forms. Forms include one or more fields that can be used to capture information such as name, email, phone number, address, comments, or any text or numerical information.
Individual form items can be designated as mandatory, which must be completed before the form is acceptance. Advanced options include multiple choice lists, single choice lists, drop down lists, and file uploads, help prompts, descriptive text, reference images, and more.
Some information is better presented as a group of articles and Think Start Build Interactive Blogs a better choice for this than Additional Pages. One blog can conveniently organize and easily present tens or hundreds of articles, while displaying the information would require numerous additional pages. Advanced Interactive Blog options include article Tags, view by Category (tag), Twitter and Facebook sharing buttons, moderated Comments, and Subscriptions via RSS feeds.
