Introducing ButterCMS’s New Features: Color Picker and Scheduled Unpublishing

Posted by Jake Lumetta on October 6, 2023

Things just got really smooth...here is our latest enhancement!

We are thrilled to announce the launch of two exciting features for ButterCMS! Today, we are introducing the Color Picker field type and the ability to schedule a page or collection to be unpublished.

Color Picker Field Type

Managing a website’s appearance and branding is crucial, and colors play a significant role in creating a cohesive and visually appealing experience. With the new Color Picker field type, ButterCMS enables you to effortlessly select and apply colors across your website, without the need for complex coding.


Benefits of the Color Picker feature:
a. Simplified customization: The Color Picker eliminates the hassle of manually entering color codes or tweaking CSS stylesheets. You can now choose colors visually from a convenient interface, ensuring consistency and saving valuable development time.
b. Enhanced branding: Maintain consistent brand identity throughout your website by easily accessing your predefined color palette. Ensure that your brand colors are applied consistently across various elements such as headings, buttons, and backgrounds.
c. Improved collaboration: Designers and developers can collaborate seamlessly using the Color Picker, ensuring everyone is on the same page when it comes to color choices. This empowers your team to work together efficiently and create visually stunning websites.

Schedule Pages & Collections to Be Unpublished

Managing content visibility and publication schedules is a critical aspect of content management. With ButterCMS’s new "Scheduling to be unpublished" feature, you can effortlessly schedule pages to be unpublished at a specific date and time, streamlining your content management process.


Benefits of Scheduling to be Unpublished:
a. Efficient content management: Plan your content strategy ahead of time by setting up for specific pages to be unpublished automatically. This feature is particularly useful for time-sensitive promotions, events, or limited-time offers. You no longer have to manually remove content, reducing the risk of oversight or human error.
b. Improved user experience: Ensure that outdated or irrelevant content does not remain accessible to your website visitors. Keep your site up-to-date and provide a fresh user experience by automatically removing content that is no longer relevant.
c. Flexibility and control: Adapt your content strategy dynamically by scheduling pages to be unpublished according to your evolving business needs. Whether you’re launching a new product or running a seasonal campaign, the ability to schedule something to be unpublished provides you with greater control over your website’s content lifecycle.
