YouTube Channel Redesign Part 2 – Edit Channel
YouTube Channel Redesign
The Edit Channel Function
One of the things about the new YouTube channel redesign is the ability to customize the look and feel of the channel, the ability to optimize the title, description and the nav bar and the ability to pick a site template that suits your needs.
The first tab you see once you click the edit channel button is the Appearance Tab.
The first option you have is a button that lets you go back to the old YouTube channel look and feel.
Old Channel Button
If for any reason you find the new look not to your liking, then this is the option for you.
The next option offered is the avatar loading button.
This lets you load an avatar from your computer to use as a marketing icon for your channel.
If you are like most channel creators, that is something you will do.
This feature is easy to use and will give you unique branding of your channel.
The last offering is the background color selection tab.
Here you can pick a color for your channel background.
Or if you have a custom background you would like to upload, you can select a menu choice from the drop down button and insert a custom background.
The last option you have available is the default tab button.
Here you can select which tab, the feature, the feed or the video that you want as your default display when your channel loads.
The feature tab will load your latest video at the top of the content and display your playlist videos as a list under the main video.
The feed tab displays all you activities that you have had in your channel. All the videos you have liked, favorited, comment on; channels you have subscribed to and uploaded, basically all of your recent activity on your channel. This is the default of choice of a lot of channel owners.
And finally, the video tab displays all of the videos you have uploaded to your channel.
These are the basic choices you have under the default drop down menu.
There is one added function. There is a check box you can check that will load the feature tab when any of your subscribers come to your channel. That is because whenever you make a change to your channel, your subscribers are automatically notified and the thought is when they come to your channel, they will want to see your featured content and this selection will make sure they do.
So there you have it. Take a look at the video above and you will get a visual rundown of how all this works.
In the meantime, stay with it, stay well and talk soon.
