Site of the Month

This DIY website uses our popular "minimal" template, that is mobile responsive. She has added an extra large logo above the menu for her branding, and using the "hover" layout for her shopping page. She has made her shopping page her home page.

Icons - Drag and Drop Editor Update

Our drag and drop editor has just been updated, and now provides a wider selection of snippet layouts, many including a new icon format. Icons are now changeable via an Icon selection wizard. In comparison to images, Icons display more crisply in a wide range of font sizes, load faster, and reduce website traffic. 

New Content Box Editor (And Template)

We have recently added "Innova Content Box" content editor to our choice of editor modes. Content box is very similar to "Innova Drag and Drop", but with the addition of sections. Sections can be 100% width of the screen, with background images etc.

Turn Headers and Footers Into Sliders

A standard page footer or header can now be converted to a content slider. Simply create your slides as a series of drag and drop snippets. Then enable the sliding animation in the page options tab. 

Cancelling Orders 

Unpaid orders can be a hassle. Stock is locked, awaiting payment. Now you can enable customers to cancel their own orders, when using selected payment gateways. The benefit of this, is your stock counts are replenished asap. The downside is you may miss an opportunity to contact your customer and clinch a sale. By default this feature is not enabled. Please edit each payment option to enable this feature with a timeline relevant to that payment method. You can also automatically cancel orders that remain unpaid via this method, using a slightly longer wait time.  

Live Traffic Reports - Most Viewed Products

In the shopping cart reports area, you can now view reports of the most popular viewed products, or monitor unique visitors of people visiting your product pages. This is an early step in adding scarcity display logic. For example, to display when other customers are viewing the same product as them. Feature coming soon.

Migrating Websites Just Got Easier

It's now easier to import webpages from another website. When adding a page, look for the new option to specify a URL to import. The external page will be scanned for content, then you will be prompted to reduce the content if any, and tweak any of the auto generated settings. This option ensures the page URL and any meta data remains the same, thus maintaining your SEO status. You need to repeat this step for each and every page you wish to transfer. It is most suitable for single page formats. We will soon be adding a similar feature into our blog management area. 

If you want to import a gallery or product page, we have alternative methods for that.
