-===== Responsive Design =====+===== Improved Interface =====
  
-The CE3 framework is fully responsive, meaning the layout is capable of readjusting and content of reflowing to better accommodate displays of all sizessignificantly improving the browsing experience for desktopstablets and mobile devices alike.+For CE3 I've dedicated much attention to the layout of controls within Lightroom, ensuring proper spacing, division and organization of slidersdrop-listsinputs, hints, etc. It may sound like a minor detail, but CE3 offers the best set of controls TTG has ever had and I think this really makes a difference in getting things done. 
 + 
 +===== Publish Services Support ===== 
 + 
 +We released our Publish Services plugin late in the life of CE2 and retrofitted our existing plugins with Publisher support. The CE3 version plugins are built with //native// Publisher support. Whether you use the publisher or not, it's just a part of what they are.
  
 ===== Reduced Footprint ===== ===== Reduced Footprint =====
  
 The CE3 framework has a drastically smaller footprint than its predecessor, meaning smaller .lrwebengine packages, faster preview builds in Lightroom, faster uploads to your server, and faster page loads for your visitors. The CE3 framework has a drastically smaller footprint than its predecessor, meaning smaller .lrwebengine packages, faster preview builds in Lightroom, faster uploads to your server, and faster page loads for your visitors.

 +The CE3 framework is fully responsive, meaning the layout is capable of readjusting and content of reflowing to better accommodate displays of all sizes, significantly improving the browsing experience for desktops, tablets and mobile devices alike.
  
 ===== Scalable UI ===== ===== Scalable UI =====
  
 The user-interface is now almost entirely free of rasterized images, with nearly all graphics replaced by font-based, vector icons. This contributes to the framework's smaller footprint, and ensures that UI elements scale prettily on HiDPI ("Retina") displays, without jaggy or fuzzy edges. The user-interface is now almost entirely free of rasterized images, with nearly all graphics replaced by font-based, vector icons.

 +===== Share Common Resources =====
 +
 +TTG CE3 Pages acts as a script repository for all other plugins. Those plugins may run in standalone fashion with their own resources, or they can all share resources from the Pages repository for improved site-wide performance.
  
 ===== Simpler Navigation ===== ===== Simpler Navigation =====
  
 Site navigation is now based on absolute URLs, which helps to keep things simple. No more messing around with relative locations and paths, which should make sites far less confusing to orchestrate than ever before. Of course, if you still want to write-in relative URLs, you can do that too. Site navigation is now based on absolute URLs, which helps to keep things simple.

-===== Social Networking ===== 
- 
-CE3 offers improved features for integrating social networking support into your pages and galleries, and better implementation of Open Graph Protocol for sharing links on Facebook and Twitter.

-===== Improved Interface ===== 
- 
-For CE3 I've dedicated much attention to the layout of controls within Lightroom, ensuring proper spacing, division and organization of sliders, drop-lists, inputs, hints, etc. It may sound like a minor detail, but CE3 offers the best set of controls TTG has ever had and I think this really makes a difference in getting things done. 
  
 ===== Slideshow Tracking ===== ===== Slideshow Tracking =====
Line 37: Line 41:
 Thumbnail galleries -- TTG CE3 Gallery, TTG CE3 Pages "Home" page slideshow, etc. -- now feature Slideshow Tracking, an optional feature that scrolls the page as users navigate the slideshow and marks the last image viewed when the slideshow is closed. It's a superb feature unique to TTG galleries, and helps to ensure your visitors will never get lost while navigating large galleries. Thumbnail galleries -- TTG CE3 Gallery, TTG CE3 Pages "Home" page slideshow, etc. -- now feature Slideshow Tracking, an optional feature that scrolls the page as users navigate the slideshow and marks the last image viewed when the slideshow is closed.
