On October 9th we will be implementing updates to the obituary console. These updates are intended to provide additional functionality and improved appearance of the final obituary. Some of the added functionality changes include:
1) integration with global search engines for each deceased individual thus allowing a person to go to their favorite search engine and enter the deceased name in order to find your obituary listing without having to first know where the service is being provided
2) selection of service type. i.e. funeral, memorial or cremation
3) selectable background colors for the outside border areas of your obituaries — over 16,000,000 colors to choose from in an easy to use color picker widget
4) improved layout of the Obituaries page on your website
5) many style changes to make your obituaries stand out more in the viewer’s eyes.
