Last week we commented that we are working on the three most requested improvements by you and we announced the availability of banners in your cloud storage. Today we are announcing the second improvement: add sliders or carousels in your virtual store.
What is a slider or carousel on the web?
A slider is a component that you can embed on your website or virtual store that allows you to view multiple photos and have them scroll automatically, or allow the user to scroll them manually. Like the ones you use Natalia Antolin:
Why include a slider?
The slider is a beautiful and modern way to display multiple images on your main page without having to display them all in a small size. You can use it to display photos of your most popular products, banners with promotions or offers, your social media profiles, and more.
How to add a slider in your tiendanube?
You can now easily integrate a slider into your shop from your cloud manager, and as always no technical knowledge. To take it you have to walk design options under the menu designand go to the section Home page:
on the slider We allow to show each picture together with the corresponding link (shortcut) so you can use it for whatever you want. For example, we suggest:
- An image of your product with a link to the product or category.
- A banner about a promotion or offer with a link to the content page that explains it.
- A banner that shows if you offer interest-free installments or free shipping.
- A banner promoting your social networks with a link to your profiles.
The size of the images depends on the design you use in your store. But no worry, Your cloud administrator will suggest the recommended image size for your shop (You can still insert images of other sizes).
You can also choose to have the transition between frames happen automatically, or prefer that users pass them manually.
That’s all, we hope you like it. Note that the most requested improvement is coming soon!
