The First Step towards a Fully Customizable Simplero
Those of you who have been following along in the newsletter and on Facebook will have noticed that we've been dripping little design teasers here and there without a whole lot of context for it. The suspense is now over, and we're super excited to tell you about what we've been cooking up for the last little while.
The long and short of it is, that Simplero is going to be fully themeable in the near future.
Yep, you got that right. The design of how your Simplero shop and your spaces look and feel is going to be fully customizable. We're going to be introducing themes and make it super easy to make your site and content look exactly how you want it, giving you the full power of even being able to edit the HTML and CSS for everything.
But, some parts of Simplero are rather complex. A few good examples are the subscription management page and the checkout form. To avoid the nightmare of everyone having to update their themes every time something changes or gets added to Simplero, we've therefore decided to make these more complicated pages an exception to the new themeable Simplero. Instead, we're giving all of these pages a complete refresh in design and making them super clean and modern in their looks without a tonne of branding, so it doesn't clash with the rest of your identity and branding.
Now, this is going to be quite a change from the look and feel of Simplero that you're used to, but we trust that you're gonna love it. Especially, because it comes with the added bonus, that all these pages will now work flawlessly on smaller screens and mobile devices as well, which will have a significant impact on mobile conversions.
So, the first step to the look and feel of Simplero being all in your hands, is a complete redesign of these sections. I've shot a brief-ish video to tell you a little more about it all and show you what it's going to look like, and what you should be aware of:
Expect to see the new checkout and related design changes within the next few weeks – we're really excited to get it into the hands of you all!
