The new Spreadshop homepage was just the beginning. Next week, we will be revamping the header area, giving you more possibilities to customize your Spreadshop.
You need to effectively target your Shop’s visitors, and this will be possible thanks to our new header, which is set to launch next week. The header is going to get smaller and smarter. “Less is more”, especially online, and you can better take advantage of your start page’s custom teaser and product preview with a smaller header area.
What will change?
The old header graphic will be replaced by a logo area with a maximum of 380×68 pixels. You’ll now be able to upload your own logo or display your Spreadshop name as text. In the next few months, you’ll be able to further customize your Shop name. At that point, you’ll get a choice of different fonts and sizes. This revamp will make the “Shop” in the header a bit irrelevant, so we’ll be removing it. The “Create” option will stick around, but it will appear to the right of your product categories or topics.
What do I need to know?
There’s no technical way to keep and retain your header graphics, so they’ll be removed following the introduction of the new logo area. If you still want to use this header, make sure you save the graphic(s) ASAP.
You’ll still be able to use your header graphic on your Spreadshop start page (as a teaser graphic). This will help your customers recognize your Shop.
If you haven’t already done so, it’s best to activate our new Spreadshop homepage before the launch of the new header. After all, why wouldn’t you want to capitalize on all the advantages?
Does adjusting the settings help my Spreadshop?
Of course! Your admin area’s menu will be adjusted, and you’ll find it in the “Page Settings” area after the launch. Under the new “Header Settings” tab, you can set up social media icons and a search field function. The previous “Header & Colors” menu will be split; the settings for “Colors” can be found under “General”.
Last but not least, we’re providing two new features for anyone who’s integrated their Spreadshop with a website. Under “Advanced Settings > Embed Shop in Website”, you can activate a burger menu for the mobile view of your Shop (you can also switch to a Swipe menu). This is also where you’ll be able to deactivate your header’s logo.
Graphics and background images that you’ve added via “Advanced Settings > HTML & CSS” will be kept. Please note that once the new header has launched, you will no longer be able to exchange these images.
Do you have any questions about the changes? Do you have any other graphics or background elements that you’d like to adapt to your Shop? Let us know in the comments.
