  • changing the Deal of the Day Widget

    Can anyone help me figure out where or how to change the actual look of the widget. I want to make the widget as large as the homepage carousel and use a larger image than the thumbnail image. Thanks in advance for the help

    I haven't used the widget yet, but. . .

    Giving the dd_widget.html a look, on line 23, there's this bit,
      <a href="product.asp?itemid=[catalogid]" target="_parent"><img src="thumbnail.asp?file=[image1]&amp;maxx=150&amp;maxy=150" alt="[name]" /></a></div>
    Try creating your image in the dimensions you want and then upload it to your store files, and enter the URL of the image at the bolded portion. You might need to change the CSS for the class 'product-img' as that seems to wrap around that img file.

      You can completely rewrite the widget in the template editor to look any way you desire. I wrote mine from scratch, using the existing widget as a guide, and it's only 9 lines long. Here's what it looks like.
