A new theme, an updated theme, and easier Youtube integration

Posted in Extensions, Themes, Third Party Themes and tagged , , , on by .

One of the benefits of using Jigoshop as an eCommerce platform is the freedom to use a wide range of themes, customise or build your own, and add in widgets and features from external social networks. That continues this week with a new third party Jigoshop theme, the release of our updated official Jigotheme with more customisation options, and a better way to add Youtube videos to all your products.

 

Bolsa Jigoshop theme:

Bolsa-Jigoshop-Theme

Bolsa will capture the attention of your customers with a design which highlights great product images and designs. It’s full responsive, and should give a great experience on any device.

Youtube Video Tab:

Youtube_Tab_Main

Video has been proven to increase traffic and sales for a large number of eCommerce businesses. Some examples have seen sales rise by 100%, and it also has a great effect on traffic by making your products more visible via search engines. Using Youtube to host your videos will save on bandwith costs, but has meant fiddling around with embed codes – you can save lots of time by using the Youtube Video Tab extension to add videos simply by entering their url. And the videos will even re-size for different devices.

 

Updated Jigotheme:

Jigotheme

We’ve updated our classic Jigotheme to make it easier to customise your store. It now integrates with the WordPress preview and customisation options, meaning that you can pick Header, Main and Background colours by using a simple colour chooser, or upload your own custom background image (or even animation). And you can preview what the changes will look like before you put them live.

4 new plugins and 1 new theme for Jigoshop

Posted in Extensions, Themes and tagged , , , , , on by .

We’ve got four new extensions plus a great new theme this week, and a couple of the additions really stand out in terms of Jigoshop functionality. You can now utilise a Search Engine Optimisation plugin designed specifically for Jigoshop and making use of the suggestions and specific requirements for a WordPress eCommerce store, and at the same time, automate professional invoices and packing slips quickly and easily.

Plus if you’ve ever thought about running a hotel, holiday home, or destination-based business, then we’ve got a new theme for you with Travel Island designed specifically for those industries.

 

SEO Deluxe for Jigoshop:

SEO Deluxe

Search Engine Optimisation is a massively important source of traffic to retailers, and even with the rise of social networks, it’s still used heavily for researching and buying products and services. So it’s important to make sure your site is well-optimised and the new SEO Deluxe extension makes it a lot easier for you. Unlike other solutions it’s been specifically designed for Jigoshop, so it has a couple of features which the others don’t.

Adding SEO Deluxe gives you an included layered navigation widget, and much more control over URL structures, Category and Product meta data, and whether you want search engines to ignore specific areas and pages. If you want to save time, you can create templates at a Category level, or dive into each individual product to ensure every part of your site is as optimised for search as possible.

 

PDF Invoices and Packing Slips:

PDFInvoicesandPackingSlips

Increase your repeat customers by impressing them with professional packing slips and invoices, and make your shipping process more efficient with the PDF Invoices and Pack Slips extension for Jigoshop.

The extension lets you quickly and easily print a single invoice or packing slip, or bulk printing for any order status, with options to set page layout, paper size, return information and all your company details (logo, name, address and email address). It can also be localized if you create a translation and use the following text domain: sod_jigoshop_pdf_settings. Check out the PDF Invoices and Packing Slips extension now to add some flair to your packing.

 

Checkout Fields Manager:

Jigoshop-Checkout-Field-Manager_main

Customise your Jigoshop checkout to include custom fields with a range of input options. You will be able to add, enable and disable, re-order and re-size custom fields. And for each field you can add check boxes, text, text area and date picker fields to make sure the information you get is exactly what you want and need. Check out the new Checkout Field Manager for yourself.

 

Offline Credit Card Processing:

You can now process credit cards offline with a new extension from VisserLabs which splits customer credit card details into two parts, with one section emailed to the store owner and one part stored in the database. Please note there are security and legal implications to doing this, which are explained in more detail on the Offline Credit Card Processing Extension page.

 

Travel Island theme for hotels and holidays:

The Travel Island theme is ideal if you’re looking to sell holiday accommodation or services, whether it’s for hotel rooms, renting a house, or taking people out for watersports or day trips. It comes from dtbaker, who also created the Sport Grunge and Mommy Blog themes.

Features of the theme include a responsive design so your site displays correctly on PC, tablet, or mobile phone. And you get a good level of flexibility with an easy-to-use Sidebar and Widget manager which allows you to set your sidebar to display on the left, right, or remain hidden – that control can be applied to individual pages to tailor your site to you demands.

More customisation comes with an image slider, Google Font Selector, a custom photo gallery and importantly a Google Map shortcode is available to let you insert maps quickly and easily into any page to really help people find your business. Find out more about the Travel Island theme for Jigoshop.

Headway Connect integrates Jigoshop with Headway Themes

Posted in Extensions, Themes, Third Party Themes and tagged , , , , , on by .

Jigoshop can now be used with all Headway Themes to provide eCommerce with their great drag-and-drop WordPress framework which allows you to create your own layout via their visual editor. And it’s possible via the new Headway Connect extension, which is now available for free.

Headway Connect Extension for Jigoshop

The Headway Connect Extension for Jigoshop

 

It’s been developed in collaboration with Grant and Clay Griffiths, the father-and son team behind Headway. The first version of Headway launched in 2009, developed by Clay at just 15-years-old, and has proven incredibly popular as it allows anyone to drag and drop  Blocks onto the editor to design and edit any page of your website. They’re now onto Headway 3, and in addition to the visual design options, you can also access a live CSS Editor, and they’ve partnered with a number of major theme developers to produce child themes which you can then ‘edit like crazy’.

HeadwayVisualEditor

The Headway Themes Visual Editor

 

Once you’ve settled on a layout, you can then change the design settings in the same Visual Editor., which lets you select fonts, colours, rounded corners, background images and more to let you style your site or page exactly how you want. As with all official Jigoshop themes, Headway has introduced a Responsive Grid to let your site automatically re-size whether your customers are visiting on their computer, smartphone or tablet. And again, like Jigoshop, it’s available to use for your own sites, or for client sites.

Installation is simple – you’ll need Jigoshop 1.1.1 or greater plus Headway 3.1.1 or greater, and then to install and activate the Headway Connect extension. And this then gives you a Jigoshop Block to use in any Headway theme.

 

Jigoshop and popular theme frameworks:

We want to continue to offer Jigoshop compatibility with the best WordPress theme frameworks, having previously announced official integration with PageLines, and producing our own integration with Genesis. Wherever possible we prefer to work directly with theme providers to ensure seamless integration, so if your favourite theme designer hasn’t been covered yet, why not ask them to get in touch with us?

 

 

Official plugin integrates Jigoshop and PageLines

Posted in Blog, Extensions, Themes, Third Party Themes and tagged , , , , on by .

We’re really pleased to share the news that Jigoshop can now be integrated into the PageLines drag and drop WordPress framework with the official Jigoshop for PageLines plugin.

One of the core values of Jigoshop is to make WordPress eCommerce easy and accessible for everyone, from store owners and their customers to designers and developers. So it’s great that we’re able to work with some of the best and most popular WordPress frameworks available to allow you to integrate eCommerce with the widest range of themes, designs and functionality, and the PageLines team has been the first to release the results of their hard work.

Jigoshop for PageLines

 

Working with Jigoshop and PageLines

Having had the pleasure of chatting with the team via countless emails and Skype calls, it’s resulted in an incredibly easy solution to install and use. If you’re using PageLines, simply download and install Jigoshop, and then install and activate the Jigoshop for PageLines plugin to join the thousands of people setting up their own online store every week.

We’ll be working with Andrew, Simon, Kyle and the rest of the PageLines team to share some more tips and advice on getting the best from both Jigoshop and PageLines, so make sure you keep an eye on both our blogs. And if you’re a PageLines user who is new to Jigoshop, welcome, and take a look at our documentation and free forums to help you get started!
