  • When To Not Use Responsive Design for Mobile
    make your site responsive It turns out that a number of merchants had customized their web sites with many features pages etc and going back and making the changes to be responsive would not be easy and if they hired a web designer not cheap They wanted a quick easy solution and they had that with ShopSite s Mobile option A brief history of ShopSite s Mobile option can be read here Suffice it to say that the Mobile feature detects that the shopper is on a mobile device and then serves up a different template and a subset of information The trade off from responsive design is that the site displayed will look different than the regular web site For example here s a responsive designed site on my Laptop Click to see full screen view Now here s smartphone screenshots of the same site On the left is with responsive design and on the right is with ShopSite s mobile feature turned on As you can see the site looks fine with the mobile feature but it does not match the original web page as well as the responsive design does So if you don t have time to make your site responsive or are not already using one of ShopSite s many Responsive Designed Themes then turn on the Mobile feature under Preferences Note that in v12 sp1 you should select the mb MobileTwo sst theme This theme has been optimized to pass Google s mobile ready tests Tags Responsive Design Posted under iPad Mobile Commerce Comment RSS Trackback If you like this post then consider sharing it with others One Comment Top 5 eCommerce Posts for June says June 30 2015 at 10 10 am When To Not Use Responsive Design for Mobile ShopSite Inc Is there a case for not using Responsive Design Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply Name required Mail will not be published required Website Top 4 eCommerce Posts for May Top 5 eCommerce Posts for June Recent Posts Top 4 eCommerce Posts for December Top 5 eCommerce Posts for November Top 5 eCommerce Posts for October New ShopSite Release v12 service pack 2 Top 5 eCommerce Posts for September Categories Administration 5 Announcements 2 Facebook Twitter Google 6 Industry Articles 38 iPad 6 Merchandising 12 Mobile Commerce 4 Payment Methods 5 Security 8 Shipping 5 Shopping Cart 3 Social Networks 1 Tips and Tricks 1 Uncategorized 2 Archives Archives Select Month December 2015 2 November 2015 1 October 2015 1 September 2015 2 August 2015 1 July 2015 2 June 2015 3 April 2015 1 March 2015 2 February 2015 2 January 2015 2 December 2014 1 October 2014 2 September 2014 1 August 2014 2 July 2014 1 May 2014 2 April 2014 1 March 2014 2 February 2014 1 January 2014 1 December 2013 2 November 2013 1 October 2013 1 September 2013 1 July 2013 2 June 2013 1 May 2013 1 April 2013 1 March

  • Mobile specific sites vs Responsive Design
    the site and it will automatically adjust to my display In the early days designers thought that those viewing a site with a phone should be redirected to a web page that was coded just for a phone So if your main site was store com the shopper would be sent to m store com or perhaps store mobi even the naming convention was not standardized With our initial mobile implementation ShopSite decided not to create yet another site that would need to be kept up to date or indexed by search engines but instead to dynamically detect that a phone was browsing the site and then programmatically send the appropriate data to the phone Today we know that phones continue to get more powerful networks get faster and devices have screen sizes that are all over the map The shopper expects to view the same site on his laptop tablet and phone Of course the smaller the screen the more some things will be left off the display but it is the same site with the same product descriptions and other information To handle all these screen sizes we have responsive design Responsive design basically says that the web site will send all the same html code and data to the device regardless if it is a phone or a laptop In that code will be information on how to display or not display certain parts based upon the screen size With today s powerful smartphones and fast data networks sending all of this data does not cause a performance problem like there would have been back in the early smartphone days In earlier versions of ShopSite you would need to specifically turn on the Mobile feature select mobile templates for pages search etc and various other settings The shopper might then see a site that looked quite different from what they saw via their laptop With responsive designed built in to a number of themes all you now need to do is have one of those themes selected e g Response Composer Deskman and others That s it Whether on an iPad Samsung smartphone or laptop the store pages and cart will automatically be adjusted to display the appropriate amount of information on the shoppers screen Posted under iPad Mobile Commerce Comment RSS Trackback If you like this post then consider sharing it with others One Comment When To Not Use Responsive Design for Mobile says June 17 2015 at 4 09 pm brief history of ShopSite s Mobile option can be read here Suffice it to say that the Mobile feature detects that the shopper is on a mobile device and then Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply Name required Mail will not be published required Website Top 5 eCommerce Posts for February Top 5 eCommerce Posts for March Recent Posts Top 4 eCommerce Posts for December Top 5 eCommerce Posts for November Top 5 eCommerce Posts for October New ShopSite Release v12 service pack

  • Place Dynamic Products In Your Blog
    frequently update your products or use OrderAnywhere to place a product on multiple pages or sites the embed Iframe feature will be a great time saver The only significant trade off for this functionality may be if you had a very busy site with multiple shoppers looking at the same product at the same time In that case the product would have to be dynamically loaded every time as opposed to the traditional static HTML rendering which uses a web server s very efficient caching mechanisms Caching stores previously viewed pages in memory on the web server so that if viewed again it will be quickly retrieved from memory instead of from the much slower disk drive Of course if you are using a blog then your pages are already being dynamically served up But if static versus dynamic is an issue for you then the traditional OrderAnywhere HTML option is still available Posted under Merchandising Comment RSS Trackback If you like this post then consider sharing it with others Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply Name required Mail will not be published required Website Increased Purchases from Shoppers using Tablets Is It Time For A Google Page Recent Posts Top 4 eCommerce Posts for December Top 5 eCommerce Posts for November Top 5 eCommerce Posts for October New ShopSite Release v12 service pack 2 Top 5 eCommerce Posts for September Categories Administration 5 Announcements 2 Facebook Twitter Google 6 Industry Articles 38 iPad 6 Merchandising 12 Mobile Commerce 4 Payment Methods 5 Security 8 Shipping 5 Shopping Cart 3 Social Networks 1 Tips and Tricks 1 Uncategorized 2 Archives Archives Select Month December 2015 2 November 2015 1 October 2015 1 September 2015 2 August 2015 1 July 2015 2 June 2015 3 April 2015 1 March
