Editing the store homepage

Make your online store even more attractive and efficient! Move or delete blocks on the store homepage or add new elements to create a truly unique and selling design for high conversions. Just give it a try and you’ll see that launching your online ecommerce business within 24 hours is not a dream but a reality.

Bigger image logos

We heard that the image logos that you could add to the header often weren't big enough, so we decided to fix that. Now the logo can be 3 times bigger in width than it was before. 

Still, bear in mind that the logo size can be limited by the block height and the neighboring columns. If you resized the logo to the maximum and the size is still the same, try adjusting the columns on the sides to give the logo more space.

More on logos in the article Adding a logo.

Online store improvements

Over the last few weeks, we kept adding new features to the store that will come in handy for SEO and products management. Check some of them out:

1. Blocking the store from being indexed — this includes products and categories pages. 

2. Hiding a category page from the search engines — this blocks the indexing of the category page but doesn't affect the other store pages.

3. Mass actions for the products — changing the statuses of multiple products to in/out of stock, and more.

4. Product display options — choose the rule for global products sorting, e.g. by name, price, etc.  

5. Product SKU is now visible in the product title — this helps your customers compare several similar products and make correct orders.

Video tutorials about Weblium features

We heard that some step-by-step video instructions help understand the product better...So please meet: Weblium video tutorials on various features!

You can find them in the product — by simply clicking on the "?" icon near the block/element settings, also in the website settings:

Also, subscribe to our YouTube channel to stay tuned for the new tutorials.

Meanwhile, check out some of the recent videos:

Hiding a block on mobile devices

Additional flexibility while creating websites! Now you can hide any block in the editor from all the small screens (including mobiles and tablets). This is useful if you'd like to share certain info with desktop viewers only, or make the website shorter on small screens.

For more info check out the guides here.

Improved mobile view of the sites

We've improved the logic of the mobile view creation. Now the paddings and fonts adjust better on mobiles which makes the websites lighter, neater, and more readable. There is now more space around buttons, and if you entered bigger paddings on the desktop, they will enlarge proportionally on smaller screens.

Moreover, empty columns and collections don't display on mobiles anymore.

To view a new, better mobile version of your website, make sure to re-publish it.

CRM: notifications about the new deals

When dealing with clients, every minute counts. Respond to the requests in a timely manner with the new feature — CRM notifications.

This way, you'll receive push notifications on your desktop and mobile about all new contact forms submits, instantly. Even if you're not logged in to your Weblium account!

To enable the notifications on desktop, open the CRM in your account and tap Yes! in the pop-up window that appears:

To enable the notifications on mobile, log in to your Weblium account from your mobile device, go to the CRM section, and allow the notifications.

Currently, this feature is available in Chrome only. Make sure that you allow Chrome to send notifications (this can be done in the browser settings).

Free trial period for new websites

We are happy to let you know that starting today, August 13, 2020, all newly created websites will be automatically assigned a free Trial period which lasts 14 days. All the websites you added before August 13, 2020, will not be affected.

What is the Trial period?

This is an opportunity for you to test some Pro features without paying for the Pro subscription right away. During the Trial period, you can decide whether Pro is right for you or the Free version is enough. 

Here is what's available on the Trial period:

  • pop-ups;
  • chats;
  • analytics;
  • integrations;
  • all blocks (except Embed code).

Here are the features NOT available on the Trial period:

  • domain connection;
  • website indexing (by Google or other search engines);
  • custom code;
  • contact form replies (even if you do have a form on your website, you can't receive any requests);
  • adding links to external resources (e.g. linking a button to another website).

What happens once the Trial period is over?

Here are 2 scenarios:

1. If you decided to not go Pro and there is no credit card linked to your account, the site will go Free automatically. 

2. If there is a payment method added to your account, the website will be upgraded to the annual Pro plan.

Important to note: 

  • You can upgrade to Pro at any point of the Trial period.
  • You can turn off the auto-renewal during the Trial period so the website doesn't go Pro even if there is a payment method in your account.

If you are unsure how the Trial period will affect your websites or if you have any questions, please contact us in chat.

Site History

Finally, you can not worry about experimenting with your site design or adding some new content. We’ve added Site History feature to our editor, so now you can save and store different versions of your site. These versions can be restored to bring a site back to the point in time when the particular version was made. 

Keep in mind that you can store up to 5 versions of your free site and up to 100 versions of the Pro site.
