Art Storefronts has heard all the feedback talking about how amazing product galleries are and about how they’re missing one small feature that would make them perfect. We’re happy to announce that we have released a brand-new feature that allows you to rearrange all the images within a specific Product Gallery (that uses Keywords). It will also let you set your thumbnail! Now you will have complete control over your images and how they appear in your product galleries. Please keep reading to learn how to utilize this feature.
Since you’ve made it to this article we hope that that means you were able to complete the steps in How To: Create A Product Gallery Page Using Keywords As Categories, How To: Create A Product Gallery Using Keywords, and How To: Add Search Keywords To Products In An Art Print Store. This should put us into the final steps of making sure your home page meets the best practices that Art Storefronts has provided.
For the last time, we’re going to use a retail store analogy. We’ve got a foundation laid (Keywords As Categories). We’ve got our shelves set up (Keywords), We’ve gone through our inventory (images in the Art Print Store) and we’ve put our products on the shelves (adding search keywords to an image). Now we’re just going to add the finishing touches by making sure everything is organized and straightened out.
The Sorting feature is what will allow you to make sure images are displayed in the order you want them display. It’s relatively simple and we’ve included a tutorial below.
- Log in to your Art Storefronts Control Panel and click on any Product Gallery that is using Keywords. We’ll be using the gallery titled Solo Artists. DO NOT choose your home page because you will not be able to sort products from that page.
- Find the tab labeled Sorting and click on it.
- Drag and drop your images into the order you’d like them to appear. The first image will be the thumbnail for the category on your home page.
- Click on View Live Site and you’ll see that your categories now have the appropriate thumb nails and your home page is set up per the Art Storefronts best practices.
