We are introducing a number of changes in the graphics that can be uploaded to the IdoSell Shop to increase the visual appeal of stores and thus, to increase the product sales. We enable control over the size of banners, buttons and ads, and we remove flash ads, thanks to which you can be sure that your store will be displayed correctly on every device, operate faster and have a higher position in search engines. Similar changes await another elements of the store, namely graphics in the menu nodes.

Both us and our customers care about graphics uploaded to IdoSell Shop stores to be displayed properly on each device. We are aware that it has a great impact on the visual attractiveness of the store, as well as their position in search engines. Uploaded graphics were often too large and too heavy which reduced their visibility and significantly lengthened the page loading time. What is more, after introducing the ability to upload RWD graphics for banners, buttons and ads, the natural step was to introduce the technology of automatic adaptation of the template to the browser window and the device used for the next element of the store's template.
Therefore, to meet expectations, we are introducing a package of changes for the graphic upload mechanism, which improves stores display, accelerates their operation and increases security.

Banners, buttons and ads sizes control

After introducing the ability to upload RWD graphics, IdoSell Shop stores have the option of displaying graphics in different sizes depending on the device the client uses. However, in order to achieve the effect of a good presentation of uploaded graphics and good SEO, it was necessary to ensure their appropriate size, which was complicated.

From now on, regardless of whether you have a customized template or a STANDARD one, the sizes of banners, buttons and ads uploaded by you are checked for compliance with the set sizes.

The ability to upload graphics to menu nodes in versions for three screen sizes

Until now, uploading RWD graphics was only possible for banners, buttons and ads. Now we provide this option also for graphics in menu nodes. You can upload graphics of various sizes to menu nodes, thanks to which your IdoSell Shop will look great on every device.

For customers with STANDARD templates, we would like to inform you that we are working on supporting RWD graphics in the menu.
