Simple

This help guide provides a specification for some aspects of the Simple theme (for example, recommended image sizes).

Please note!

ShopWired's theme customisation editor can be used to edit your theme's style, branding and settings. You can read about it here.

Product, category and other image sizes back to top

Category images

Category images are portrait, so they have an aspect ratio of 0.83 : 1.00.

The largest size category images are shown at is 304px x 365px.


Product images

Product images are portrait, so they have an aspect ratio of 0.83 : 1.00.

The largest size product images are shown at is 635px x 762px.

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.


Blog image

The theme's blog home page displays an image at the top of the page.

The image is landscape, with an aspect ratio of 1.77 : 1.00.

The recommended image size is 1706px x 962px.

Text on the left of the image can be set in the text snippets section of your theme's style editor.

Home page images back to top

There are two galleries for your home page, one for desktop/laptops and one for smaller screen devices.


Desktop/laptop (larger screen devices)

Images are landscape, they have an aspect ratio of 2.17 : 1.00.

We'd recommend uploading images sized 2500px x 1150px.

You can upload images of different sizes, if doing so make sure your image is at least 1800px wide and that all images you upload to the gallery have the same dimensions.


Mobile (smaller screen devices)

Images are landscape, they have an aspect ratio of 1.25 : 1.00.

We'd recommend uploading images sized 1000px x 800px.

You can upload images of different sizes, if doing so make sure your image is at least 800px wide and that all images you upload to the gallery have the same dimensions.

Home page products back to top

Optionally, you can display up to 3 large sized products on the home page, as shown in the example below.

The three products are set in the Favourites Homepage Products of the style editor.

For each product you want to feature you need to enter two pieces of information:

Product ID (in the 'Favourite Product' field) - this corresponds to the product that you want to feature

Product Tag - this corresponds to the tab heading (in the example above the tab headings are 'LADIES', 'HATS', 'GIRLS'.

To obtain the ID of your product, click to edit the product within your ShopWired account and look at the URL of the page in your browser's address bar. The ID is the final number in the URL.

IMPORTANT Please note that the feature works best when you have at least 2 images for each theme. The larger image for the product is shown square so the top and bottom part of the image (if uploading portrait product images) will not be visible).

Limits back to top

Category menu The category menu shows a maximum of 20 parent categories after which a view all link is displayed which, when clicked, will link through to the /categories page.

Brand menu The brand submenu shows a maximum of 20 brands after which a view all link is displayed which, when clicked, will link through to the /brands page.

There is a limit of 99 featured categories and 99 featured products displayed on the home page.

Missing features back to top

There are no standard features missing from this theme.

Logo sizes back to top

In order to keep an attractive looking header the theme has a maximum height for logos on desktop screens of 44px, this increases to 60px on mobiles.

We'd recommend uploading a landscape logo (width is greater than height) where the height is 60px.

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.
