Soundclick released their new Version 5 for October 2019. With many new features on the main Website and Charts Pages. You can play and purchase Beats right on the Charts, which looks more like a Playlist now.
The customizable Band Pages are changing and are now called “Pro Pages”, which also means your Version 4 Layout won’t be available anymore.
Those Pro Pages are now “customizable stand-alone Pages” and are not shown within the SoundClick network. Only at your stand-alone url: https://pro.soundclick.com/yourname
The old Version will be hosted on http://v4.soundclick.com/… for a short time before being completely removed.
We at XLay will need to create totally new Layouts for this Update.
The compact MP3 Player has been replaced with a new list of Songs/Beats which will open in a new Player at the bottom of the Page.
There is a new Side Menu similar to the one we had on some of our Layouts, with your Profile Picture and Links.
The Soundclick Licensing Info Tables are now added to the Page which makes it easier to keep everything up-to-date.
A Contact Form has been added, which makes external email sending scripts unnecessary.
You can now show/hide the content on your Page with the new Layout Modules.
We will keep you posted with our new Layouts for Soundclick Pro Pages and Landing Pages.
If you are using a Version 4 Layout from us, feel free to update your Layout to a Version 5 Pro Page right here.
