This help guide provides a specification for some aspects of the Alaska theme (for example, recommended image sizes).
ShopWired's theme customisation editor can be used to edit your theme's style, branding and settings. You can read about it here.
Click a section below to jump to it:
Product, category and other image sizes back to top
There are no category images on this theme.
Product images are square, so they have an aspect ratio of 1.00 : 1.00.
The largest size product images are shown at is 554px x 554px.
If using the roll over zoom or lightbox features then product images will be displayed at a larger size. We'd recommend uploading images at least 1000px x 1000px in size if using these features.
Home page images back to top
The same gallery of images is displayed on all devices.
Images are landscape, they have an aspect ratio of 1.50 : 1.00.
We'd recommend uploading images sized 695px x 464px.
You can upload images of different sizes, if doing so make sure your image is at least 695px wide and that all images you upload to the gallery have the same dimensions.
Missing features back to top
The Alaska theme is only suitable for a small product range (maximum 10 products). The Alaska theme does not have individual pages for categories or products, instead all products are displayed on the home page through the 'featured products' feature.
The theme does not allow customers to create accounts.
Logo sizes back to top
The ideal logo size is around 240px x 70px.
We'd recommend uploading a landscape logo (width is greater than height) where the height is around70px.
The maximum width that the logo will display at, both on desktop screens and mobile screens, can be set individually on the style editor.
Tabbed product descriptions
The tabbed product descriptions feature allows you to split your product descriptions into 5 separate tabs.
To use this feature you'll need to activate the tabbed product descriptions app within your ShopWired account.
You can specify the tab heading for each section in your theme's style editor in the product page section.
The content from the Product Description 1 field does not have a heading on this theme, so there is no heading setting for it.
Product specific tab heading
You can set the tab headings on a 'per product' basis by setting up some additional settings in your ShopWired account. To do so, install the Custom Fields app. Once done, create 4 custom fields with the following settings:
Item Type as Product
Name as product_tab_x
Label as Tabbed description x
Type as Text
Please note, you'll need to create 4 separate custom fields replacing X each time with the number of the field, e.g. product_tab_2. You cannot create a product_tab_1 field on this theme because this text does not have a heading.
