Social media broadcast
When you create new content, you can automatically push updates to Twitter and Facebook directly from BLOX CMS, keeping your users coming back.
With BLOX CMS, your site's layout, content and advertisements will dynamically adjust to fit your users' devices, giving an outstanding experience on smartphones, tablets and desktops.
Powerful multimedia capabilities
BLOX CMS offers built-in video capabilities and support for a wide variety of 3rd-party providers, including Field59, YouTube and Syndicaster. You can even shoot and upload videos using your smartphone or mobile device.
You upload one high-resolution image, we automatically generate thumbnails and all preview images on demand. This saves your staff from the hassle of creating the same image in several sizes, and speeds up your site, since users only served images that are pre-sized for their device.
