The HTML 5 Vibe is Alive

After yesterday’s mighty launch of HootSuite 5, this nest of Owls is ready for a weekend of replenishing the fingers and brain. But before we shift to summertime leisure mode, we want to share a few awesome vids, pods and posts made by HootSuite users about the new release.

HTML5 meets HootSuite ~ HootSuite5 smashed it again with incredible updates, of which I couldn’t pick one favorite. So Amazing – You really have to try for yourself, but I wanted to share HootSuite5 from my perspective. *Of course this is not an official HootSuite video

How to change back to “normal” retweets in Hootsuite107designs

Along with Hootsuite’s new interface came Twitter web retweets, which I’m not fond of in the least. After I discovered that it was optional, I thought I’d share how to change it back to “normal”. Hope this helps. :)

Thank goodness for the clue in about being able to turn off the "twitter web retweets" I don't have enough time to be playing around trying to figure 'new' things out...and the "web" re-tweets make things difficult. One of the reasons I liked HS was it's simplicity of use; especially with visibility of going to all my social networks at once. This 'upgrade' may change that opinion...

I literally can't figure out any other way to make these comments at your website so I'll just leave them here.

There is no way to schedule a series of future tweets anymore as there used to be.

My RSS feed broke the other day and the new poosts on my blog do NOT get "tweeted" as they once did.

The navigation at this site is horrendous. I guess it seems intuitive to you but I think it is a nightmare.

I clicked on FEedback and that will not come up - the only thing that will "pop up" is when you click on the 'blog' tab so uhh...here you go! It sure is hard to bellive that you designed an "update" and came back with something that seems 100% broken to this former user. Mark this site and this service down as one of those sites I've abandoned in my "web career" - I'll just go off now and find something else that works. I'm sure I'll forget you in about 15 sec.......oops already did.

I am utterly pleased by all the new features that has been added to Hootsuite. It would be nice, to see in future addition, to have the option of adjusting the size of columns

Ray, HootSuite manages multiple channels to provide assistance including a comprehensive Help Desk {http://help.hootsuite.com} with ticketing system along with multiple monitored Twitter addresses {http://twitter.com/hootsuite_help} and a Feedback Channel {http://feedback.hootsuite.com} for feature requests. Each of these resources is easily found in the primary menu within HootSuite. Scheduling remains a core part of HootSuite's offering as does posting via RSS.

You can always adjust the size of the column by the column size slider on the top right corner

But that simply gives you the option to have 1,2 or 3 columns. What I indicated was to have more of flexibility to adjust each column according to your needs in order to have more than 3 columns without scrolling to the right.

You can adjust the slider to allow more than 3 columns on-screen but indeed all columns are of equal size.
