These days, many authors or websites prefer to post an image along with the blog post so that readers can get an idea right away what the blog post is about. From the design prospective also, posting an image makes your blog post looks interesting and it catches more attention.
Recently in 3.60 version, nopCommerce added a feature in the blog section where store admin (or authors) can post a blog overview so that whole blog post is not visible on the initial blog page. But, there is no additional feature out of the box to add (or upload) an image for your blog post.
Today, we will go over the process of adding an image to blog post as a workaround.
There are times when web developers or designers do not wish use all the default layout or colors that comes out of the box with any open source project. nopCommerce comes with a great modern theme that should fit most of the store sites need (irrespective of the industry). But, sometimes, making some minor changes to the default colors gives store site an edge and that is what makes the design different from other online stores using the same default theme.
Today, we will go over the process of changing the color of top search button in nopCommerce.
There are many online store sites that basically manage their inventory specifically by SKUs which makes SKU (id or number) a very important aspect of their eCommerce business. Many times, online retailers like to include "search by sku" option in search on the store site that gives the ability to customers to find products by sku.
nopCommerce does allow adding "SKU" to the product catalog and when "advanced search" is enabled along with "search in product description" then only online shoppers can look for a product by SKU.
But, there is a big possibility that many of the new online customers won't know that the search feature on the site does support "search by sku" by enabling these advanced search options. Now, this makes it very important for many store owners to add "search by sku" feature by default in the basic search itself.
Today, we will go over the process of adding search by SKU to basic search in nopCommerce (as a default feature).
In the latest version of nopCommerce 3.60, the topics section have been improved quite a lot and now it offers a lot more functionality opposed to the previous versions of topics. The new topics are more flexible now and because of that a lot of users can make use of topics instead of hard-coded (or manually added) pages. This would be very helpful to store admins (or retailers) who are not tech savvy and they can easily add new pages to the store site from the administration section.
We will be focusing on 3 main improvements today:
1) Allow store owners to add topics to the footer 2) Allow store owners to chose template for topics 3) Allow store owners to make topic pages accessible while public store is closed
