The Georgia Theme for Spiffy Stores includes a host of features including 8 different colour schemes, and 9 different font options.
To preview the Georgia Theme for Spiffy Stores, head on over to the theme’s demo site.
There’s also some handy tips in the blog there on how to insert images in the built-in blog in your Spiffy Store.
By default, the Georgia theme uses the menu called "Top menu" in your store's header.
If you're switching to the Georgia theme from another theme, and have all of your menu items in a different menu, you can select the menu that you want to use in your store's header in the Store Header section of your Theme editor. You simply select the menu you want to use and click the Save Settings button.
Please note that you will need to include a link to your cart page in the top menu of your store, as your customers will have no way to get there.
The Georgia theme supports up to 4 levels of drop-down menus.
There's no mucking about with code to get your drop-down menus working. You can create them simply by following the simple steps below. One important note though... you can't create links to nothing! If you haven't created the page or collection you want to link to, you need to create them first.
Previewing your store should show your second item as a drop-down. You can do this with multiple levels, and re-arrange your menus by dragging items up, down, left, or right whilst you're in "re-order" mode.
The Georgia theme includes 3 main images on the home page that you can also add links to, so you can direct customers to specific areas in your store.
You edit these images in the "Home page" section of your Theme Editor, which can be found in the "Design & assets -> theme editor" section of your store's Toolbox. There you can upload new slideshow images, delete images and enter links.
You will need to upload your slideshow images at the correct sizes so that they're not stretched or squashed. You can do this using most image editing programs, but many people find Pixlr useful.
Your main feature image must be resized / cropped to 406 x 304 pixels, and your secondary feature images must be resized / cropped to 177 x 133 pixels before you upload them, or they will be stretched.
The text on your home page can be edited in the "pages and blogs" section of your store's Toolbox. Edit and save the page called "Home Page" to make changes.
You can display up to 3 collections on your home page. These can be selected in the "Home page" section of your Theme Editor, which can be found in the "Design & assets -> theme editor" section of your store's Toolbox.
The Georgia Theme has some fancy image frames, which make product photos you upload look a lot nicer in your store than if a photo was just plonked on the page.
The trade-off for this is that you will need to either change your store setup, so it re-sizes or crops your images to landscape, or you will need to re-size your product images before you upload them to your store. Read on to find out more about each method.
To change the default image sizes that your Spiffy Store uses, you will need to do a couple of things… turn on advanced configuration options in your preferences, and then edit the product image sizes in your theme editor. Instructions on each step are below.
Resizing your images before you upload them gives you far greater control. Not everyone knows how to use these programs, which is why we have recommended the “Custom image sizes” option for most people.
Most people have some sort of image editing program that allows them to re-size or crop an image. There are plenty of free ones out there as well.
If you’ve got a handle on editing your own images… give it a go!
If you upload product images that are 800px wide x 600px high (landscape), then your photos should come out gorgeous.
