DropInBlog works by inheriting the CSS of the website it is embedded into. The typeface, colors, look and feel of the actual blog posts are inherited from your site. You can choose from our templates how your blog gallery will appear.
No. Users don't see us, nor are redirected to our site. All they see are your blog posts and your beautiful website.
It depends on what exactly are you looking for. If you already have a blog that works for you, then maybe not. But if you are looking for a different solution, then DropInBlog may be just right for you. Contact us with what you are trying to accomplish and we can help you determine if DropInBlog is a good solution.
DropInBlog is platform agnostic and works, in most cases, across all platforms and websites. Contact us if you have questions about a specific platform or setup and we'll take a deeper look to make sure DropInBlog is the right fit for you.

A user is who can login to your DropInBlog account and create posts and manage your account. The user you signup with is your Master Admin user and has full permissions. Other users you can set to different roles that have different permissions. For example an Admin has full permissions, an Editor doesn't have access to billing info.
Some of the templates put a nice shadow and border on the images you insert into you posts. If you want to remove this on a specific image just add
class="dib-noborder" to the
img tag of the desired image.
