6 Cool PortalPanel Features That Could Be Easily Overlooked

PortalPanel does a few things well, including organizing your bookmarks, giving you access to the most powerful RSS Reader, and keeping you connected to your social networks. Besides major functions and capabilities, the application has a lot of tools that are no less important and useful, however, sometimes they do get overlooked.

1. History Folder

It’s the first folder on your left. The History folder is there by default and it’s notoriously easily overlooked. The folder holds all your browsing history, just like all major browsers do these days. It’s convenient in case you visited a page that you really liked, but forgot to bookmark it. If this is the case, open your History folder, locate the link and bookmark it from there.  If your browsing history includes something you’re rather ashamed of (today I clicked on a link to an article about Selena Gomez), click ‘options’ and select ‘clear history.’  Your folder is now wiped clean and your dignity has been saved.

Get the Most of Your Web Bookmarking App

From its inception, PortalPanel has maintained a YouTube channel. Initially it featured just a brief introduction about the application. Currently, we have 11 professionally produced active videos… and counting. The videos range from 35 seconds (yes, talk about valuing your time!) to just under 10 minutes. So there’s a clip for everyone, even if you have just a minute to spare.

What’s in the videos for you? Everything! From a simple ‘how to’ that covers a process of setting up an account to a recently updated showcase video to separate videos on the most popular PortalPanel features such as our very own RSS reader “News Portal.” The YouTube channel provides vital information for new users and keeps existing users up-to-date.

If you’ve never visited our YouTube channel, we hope this blog post will encourage you to do so. While you’re there, make sure you subscribe to our channel and hit “like” next to the videos that you enjoyed.

What's the Best Homepage?

A bookmarking app, video bookmarking tool, calendar, and now RSS reader, PortalPanel has truly grown and matured. Apparently, all the changes and additions have slightly overwhelmed some of our users, especially those new to PortalPanel; as a result, we’re being asked to summarize or provide ‘in-a-nutshell’ description of our app more often than before.  

For some of you, an updated video tour may be a good place to get (re)acquainted with the app. Regardless whether the tour alone can sufficiently satisfy your curiosity, consider this post to be our best attempt at answering the following question: What is PortalPanel and how’s is it useful for me?

The easiest way to fall in love with PortalPanel is to think of it as your home page. Tell your browser that you DEMAND PortalPanel is your home page starting NOW! Think of PortalPanel when you start your desktop or open your laptop in the morning. It smells like morning coffee and bagels; like a new successful day; like a fresh start. ‘Homepage’ is in PortalPanel’s figurative DNA. PortalPanelis your homepage that features all the news you want to read; all the links you want to save and re-visit; all the cool YouTube videos that you may want to share with your friends or post on your business Facebook page.

It’s one page to rule them all; it’s simplicity and convenience packed in the awesome design and delivered at no cost without torturous ads or interruptions.
