Easy Content Builder updates - June 2024

We're thrilled to introduce our latest updates for this month. Our main focus has been on enhancing our existing sections. Our new updates for June 2024 include the following:

Let's take a closer look at these exciting new features.

Display your Instagram posts, Tiktok videos, Google Maps/Forms in a lightbox

Display your Instagram posts, TikTok videos, and Google Maps/Forms in a lightbox by activating the modal feature within three sections - Images With Text, Section Title, and Button. This feature is perfect for embedding content from platforms like YouTube, Vimeo, Instagram, TikTok, or Google Maps/Forms.

A lightbox refers to a modal that darkens your Shopify store and presents a dialog containing the rich content from that link. You can close this lightbox by clicking on a cross button or anywhere in the darkened part of the page.

Here's an example of a grid of clickable images using the Images With Text section. It displays an icon when hovering over the image and opens the link in a lightbox:

For other scenarios, you might only need to display CTA buttons or text with CTA using Section Title or Button sections, just like this example.

Enhanced Featured Products/Collections Section

And here's the next exciting update for this month: a new feature has been added to the Featured Products/Collections section. Now, in addition to the current slider layout, you can display a grid of featured products. This allows you to showcase up to 5 products per row.

Furthermore, with the new Grid layout, you can display multiple images in a product card, enabling users to scroll through them using Prev/Next arrows. Take a look at the live demo here.

Enhancing SEO Performance for Your Shopify Store with Rich Snippets

Another important update for this month is the addition of Rich Snippets support for our sections - Circle Menu, Accordion, Products, as well as blog posts.

Rich snippets, also known as rich results, are search results that offer additional information about your Shopify store, such as ratings, review count, prices, and product availability. Google extracts this extra information from schema markup code. When Google chooses to display rich snippets on the search result page, these details can be beneficial to potential visitors and may help attract more clicks to your content.

The best part is that you don't need to be a coding expert to obtain rich snippets for your Shopify store when using the sections provided by Easy Content Builder.
