Start of 2021, what's new?

Since our launch we've seen many store owners and entrepeneurs use our app and we've gotten alot of feedback from everyone which has been very valuable! The changes that we're released today include a total rebuild of the onboarding experience for our Shopify customers. Prior we had a checklist for our setup which was quite frankly very tedious and hard to understand for alot of people. The new 'getting started' guide for all new owners should be much more intuitive and better prepare stores for the content that the stores can be filled with.

Detailed list of updates:

  • Total rebuild of Getting started.
  • Changed the displaying of prices to the correct formatting for US stores to periods for decimal values.
  • New guides in the help center to help new store owners getting setup and installing the galleries.
  • Changed the name 'Widgets' to 'Galleries' in the whole platform, which is easer to understand.
  • Added a modal in the settings/store which Shopify stores can use to install Cevoid on secondary themes.
  • Added translations for the widget to: spanish, german, french and swedish. These translations are active if the users browser is set to that specific language, otherwise it defaults to english.
  • Added a button to report innaproriate content on desktop as well as in mobile.
  • Changed the menu structure to make it more easy on the eyes and easier to use.
  • Added support for stores that are still in development to be able to link to product preview links.
