We are excited to announce to you that the Basel version 3 will be officially released this month. We are eager to introduce you to the latest features in this version.
In this version, we focus on features, user experience, optimization instead of developing new home pages. So do not be surprised that in previous versions you have a new homepage but not in v3.
1. Integrate Ryviu
Ryviu is our official partner and in all The4 products, we will integrate two review applications: Ryviu and product review app. To use, you only need to choose the review app from Themes Setting > General
2. Product page upsell features
Yes, we have added some features that increase the trust of the product page. Although they are fake, in fact, we find that it helps our customers sell more, save more money using the application.
3. Bigger Add to cart, Bigger buy it now
Many customers have asked us how to make these two buttons wider, and we have improved it by making them appear full width instead write custom CSS. You can also change their colors via the optional system
4. Sticky add to cart
We also developed this unique feature on Basel after Gecko and Elessi. This feature makes it easier for customers to purchase goods when scrolling down the page..
Your website also look more professional
5. Free shipping threshold
This feature is quite new and special, we do it for the first time on Gecko. At that time Gecko was the first and only product to have this feature, then the authors brought this feature to their product. We realize this feature needs to be brought to Basel immediately
6. Optimize suggest Product features
This feature has appeared since the first version of Basel but in v3, we have improved a bit with new options, effects and features that make this function more flexible.
7. Add cart up-sell features
Instead of after buying and showing from the right, you can turn on this new feature, it allows to show popup after purchase. This popup supports displaying some products with the aim of boosting sales
8. New resize image features
This feature at first seems quite poor and not powerful enough, which is why we spend time developing it. With v3, you can adjust the product image size more flexible. We allow you to upload sample resolutions and apply product images according to this resolution
9. A lot of color options
We also take the time to add a lot of options to allow changing colors, which will make it easier to adjust instead of just a few colors as before. It also helps limit the need to write custom code as before.
10. Update Footer config
Previously you could only select a few of the available layouts for Footer but now with new ways, you can customize them more flexible and easy. We also removed the old layouts and you will have to reconfigure the Footer again
11. Remove Nitro Slider and use Simple Slider
If you have used the old version, you will find Nitro slider quite difficult to use, it also slows down the website a bit. But in return, it is very powerful with lots of features and effects. However, we realize what customers care about are speed and time, so instead of using something powerful, they will prefer to use a simple and faster slider. A simple slider will also save you time. The new version slider also supports relatively well and I think it is enough for you to create a beautiful slider.
But what if you still want to use Nitro slider? Don't worry, we'll update the guide to help you integrate Nitro slider into v3 soon.
11. Sidebar login / register
This feature is one of the most prominent updates of Basel, there are many customers wishing to have registration / login function in the sidebar instead of having to reload the registration / login page. It helps your website look outstanding and different because not many Shopify templates support it. After Basel, we will bring it to Gecko and Elessi so Gecko and Elessi users please be patient and wait for the next update :)
12. Other things
In addition, we also improve some things like
- Add existing provider options
- Allows you to configure the remaining amount while, for example, if there are less than 10 items in stock, will show "HURRY, THERE ARE ONLY x ITEM (S) LEFT!"
- Add agreeing to terms before payment
- Show currency when off the top bar
- Support logo in the middle on mobile
and fix some minor errors such as:
- Fix some inline CSS
- Fix sticky Footer white error
- Fix some CSS errors
The above is a brief summary of Basel 3rd edition changes. We always try to bring the best products to users and try to keep our working attitude positive, forward, listen and support our ability.
Hope you (old and new customers) will continue to support us and give your comments to help Basel, Gecko and Elessi more perfect.
