INTRODUCING THE NEW TEMPEST GALLERY
We’re excited to introduce a big update for Tempest galleries! They have been completely redesigned to provide a richer, more immersive cross-device reader experience with a ton of new features. The new galleries feature an optional title and description to help you better showcase your images. Images are viewed in a new media viewer page, which counts a page view for each slide and enables increased monetization for galleries. We’re also introducing support for full size image viewing. Just click on an image, and it will expand to a full size view. You can read more about it here.
NEW HEADER OPTIONS
To help brands stand out, we’ll soon offer increased flexibility of the look and feel of your header. Bigger logos, multiple positions, and the ability to add a custom background image will all help our publishers make a great first impression.
We’re also cleaning up the nav to make it easier to highlight sections and call attention to social links, search, and brand promotions. We'll start rolling out these changes over the summer and can’t wait to see what your sites look like with the new and improved header!
Below is an example of what can be done; note that this is not a true header from ReadWrite.
NEW STATUS PAGE
We’ve launched a new page with live status information about Tempest and related critical services, available at http://tempest-status.saymedia.com. If you experience any performance or outage problems you can verify operational status here as well as follow incident updates from us around any ongoing issues and our progress towards resolution.
