Bling up Part 1 - Clever new home page icon - Random product picture change
This is part of our new bling up options that we have created and I'm going to call this Bling up Part 1. This is an option for all ifit-PRO users to have on or have off and you can even change the interval at which the icons change!
So what am I talking about? The home page of most ifit-PRO sites will have an icon for each category that you have selected for your website (this is the default option, but you can untick the home page icons selection in the products tab of your ifit-PRO cpanel). Now we have made some options for these so that your site can look different and also keep your potential customers on your site longer while he or she is mesmorised by all the cool products that you have on your website.
Please take a look at the demo site here http://demo.ifit-pro.co.uk/ and you will see that I have set the demo site up to have random changing icons on the home page and I have selected them to change at 3 second intervals. You can set yours to change by logging into your ifit-PRO cpanel and going to the products tab, at the top of the products tab you will see an option called "Category icon swap interval (seconds):" and the default value will be 0. The number you type there will be the number of seconds between the image changing, if you want to go back to static icons then just type 0 in there and they will be static again.
We also create a link directly to that product on your website and attach the link to the picture that is showing, this will allow a potential customer to point and shoot! IE see a product and click on it to go directly to find out more about the product.
We have also introduced the ability for you to upload your own pictures for each category for those of you who would prefer not to use the default ones. If you go to your products tab and then go to the category that you want to change the icon of, ie Mobile Phone Handsfree, then click on "Options", then click on the "Browse" button where you see "Category icon" and then click upload. You will then be using your very own category icon. If you would like to go back to the default icon then simply click the remove text above "Browse" (NOTE THAT YOU MIGHT NEED TO REFRESH THE PAGE BEFORE YOU SEE THE TEXT).
