Gigawatt eCommerce, the latest iteration of our popular video theme has been through three weeks of solid development time which means this theme iteration is probably one of the most thorough themes developed by Obox to date.
We had the whole team involved here including some massive sessions where we were all getting stuck into the code as if there was a time bomb on the table. It was great to see.
When styling this version I wanted to make sure that we maintained the grungy look of the original, so some heavy duty CSS’ing went on to see that through. I think you will find that the iterations have worked well and looks great on your mobile phone too.
With the eCommerce version of Gigawatt we have updated the slider with a whole bunch of options. You can now choose the type of content you want to display (blog, product or portfolio posts). If you choose the product display, we have included an overlay showing the name and description of the product in the slider.
Also new is the inclusion of the slider in the product page, so if you have more than one image to show the slider will automatically appear.
Cart drop down
The shopping cart is now a drop down sitting at the top of right of the screen. The raw look of it suiting Gigawatt well.
In previous builds we have hidden the pricing from list pages but decided that it would look good with some neat overlays here.
Purchase button area
We mentioned this briefly with the Kiosk release and we’ve expanded on it a bit here. I think one of the best looking parts of Gigwatt eCommerce is the purchase button area - it took a huge amount of time to style in all the variables that are factored into the purchase button code and I think we got it quite right.
Have you tried Social Commerce?
Since Gigawatt eCommerce is built with WooCommerce don’t forget to have a look at Social Commerce as well. The plugin allows you to sell your products within your Facebook fan page and works great with this theme.
