SiteBuilder Features and Fixes release

Posted Thursday 22 Jan 2015 12:21 PM

New or Updated Features


  1. Significant SEO Changes for e-commerce (Ecommerce)

    We have changed the sitemaps so google can index more easily any pages where you have multiple pages of products in a category. Now the sitemap will feature not just the first page but all subsequent pages.

    You can now set and control a number of new elements that are displayed on the page or in the code behind for products and you can override the standard rules on a product by product basis if you desire:

    We have now supplied a new title editor. Using this new tool will allow you to prepend some text before a list of product options and append some more text after the product options.

    For example you may wish to append your company name or a brand name to a product listing that doesn't contain it.

    If you sell small red widgets you could select the option [size] [colour] [productname] and then append your company name "by ACME company.  

    You can now set rules for Product Page Titles to construct the titles how you like them. 
    Previously this was a sitewide rule but you can now override this for each product. 
    To set the rules expand your product in the products screen and choose SEO Titles. 
    Select the element you wish to change and then choose if you wish to change it sitewide by selecting the "Set Default rule" option.  If you just wish to change it for that product dont select that option.  Either way you can then tick the selection of options you wish to amend and Prepend or append any text you wish to.  The results will be displayed in the box at the bottom of the screen.  Click save to finish.

    You can set rules for the following items

    Page Titles
    Product Item Name H1 Header tag
    Product Image Alt tags
    Product Image source names

    Please be aware that if you use the "Custom Title" feature that will override the page title option above.  The custom title option allows you to manually specify a page title for google benefit but for most people this will no longer be required because of the new options detailed above.

    We have also added more item prop tags for Google bots to find product information more easily. This is a format google support to help them identify products and better rank them.

    We have also added product images to sitemaps the page sitemaps in a format supported by google so they can better associate images with products.

          1. Advanced Navigation Clickable States (Ecommerce)

            In the Advanced Navigation editor you can now turn off the clickable state of individual levels. To achieve this we have added an option in the advanced navigation menu editor which disables the clickable state.  All sub pages to that level remain clickable unless you disable those also. 

            We have also added a drop down page selector that will list all your custom shop landing pages and allow you to link specific pages to specific levels of the navigation. The default products page will be used if nothing else is selected.

            These are advanced features.  For advice on their use please call support.

          2. Main Site Menu Clickable States

            You can now exclude a page from being clickable at any level in the menus.  This means you can have a top level page that is not clickable but all sub pages are. 
            To enable this feature please go to the page editor popup in the pages manager, you will see a new tick box option for doing this.

                1. Ecommerce tabbed Panel (Ecommerce)

                  You can now create Tab Panels to be used in conjunction with the Tabs Widget for the Shop Item Pages.

                  Tab panels are primarily a space saver but are used on may large ecommerce sites like Amazon and Ebay.

                  By default there are always 2 existing panels which cannot be removed. Those are linked to the Description and the Extra Information sections on this page.

                  Tab Panels need to be linked to your Product Items. Ticking a check box next to a tab panel will turn it on for the Item you are viewing but you will also be prompted to link it to other Items within the current product to save you having to add the tab to each item in turn

                  If you don't wish a tab panel to show for a particular Product Item, then simply leave the field associated with the Tab empty.

                  1. Colour Swatches (Ecommerce)

                    Colour Swatches can now be added to product listings in the main product results page.  When a customer rolls over the colour swatch the corresponding product image will be loaded.

                    This is an advanced e-commerce feature that should be enabled by your designer

                  2. Internet Explorer Support

                    As IE7, IE8 and IE9 are no longer supported by most major online companies, we are no longer supporting them either.
                    This is only when editing your site.

                    If you wish to use Internet Explorer, we strongly recommend IE10 or above (IE9 is an interim version where Microsoft were migrating to the standardised html document object model and only did half the job)

                    If you are not in a position to use Internet Explorer 10 or above then we recommend Google Chrome. if you try to edit your site with IE9 or less you will see a popup page with links for downloading other browsers.

                        The first email address was obscuring the button, this is now fixed.

                      1. Move item variations between products on e-commerce (Ecommerce)

                        We have now added an option to move a product variation from one product range to another. 

                        To use this facility open a product and click the 'Move Items' button.
                        You will now see a series of check boxes appear, click the ones on the items you want to move.

                        When you have selected all items click the 'Move Items' button again and you will see a list of available products to move them to.

                        Select the appropriate product and click 'Move Items'

                      1. Product Options Update to allow more flexibility on filters (Ecommerce)

                        We have changed ecommerce options so there are now three name values for a Product Option.

                        The first is simply a way for you to identify the option and is not used anywhere else in the system.

                        The second is an Ebay name value for use when listing on Ebay or Amazon

                        The third is a WebShop value that is displayed throughout your main web shop site.

                        The main reason for this change is that some options need to be named differently when listing on Ebay or Amazon if you use this option.  Please speak to our support team if you have any questions over this feature chabge.


                      2. Loading popup panel

                        The text on the loading panel can now be removed to allow for just a spinner.

                      2. Drop down values out of order (Ecommerce)

                        On the item page, when a value is preselected in a drop down, it appeared at the top of the list and so it was out of sequence in some cases. This is now fixed.

                      3. Slideshow Hyperlink removal

                        After adding a url link to a slideshow image there was no way to remove it if you chose to. This is fixed.

Product drop down priority can be changed in the products options settings.

                          By reloading the page Google Analytics results will be more accurately recorded.

                        2. New theme for Slideshows

                          Previously if there were no product linked to a particular nav level it would pop up and say 'No Products Available' even if there were sub levels to show.
                          Now if there are sub levels the popup will not show and it will load the links

                          Fixed a bug where videos didn't play on Firefox or Safari (Windows) if Flash wasn't installed.
                          Now it forces the user to download and install flash.

                            It is now possible to animate the text that shows for product listings. If you turn this on (in the widget editor) the text elements need to be placed on top of the image elements in editor mode.

                            Live the text will not be visible until the mouse is moved over the item. At this point the text will animate up from the bottom.

                            This option is not available on mobile sites as there is no mouse over item
