Today we released an update which allows you to attach multiple products to your product pages. This is useful if you have a number of related products but you don't want to create a separate page for each product. Some examples could be:
When you have multiple products attached to a page, you will see separate "Buy Now" and "Add to Cart" buttons for each product:
Please note here is NO LONGER a price box on the page editor. Instead you need to use the "edit" links on the attached products. You'll see these when you're logged in:
The step by step process to add a new product is:
If you have any questions about this new feature, please feel free to contact us.
With mobile visitors now accounting for over half of your traffic it is pretty important that they can actually read your website. Unfortunately, most phones show your website in teeny-tiny font unless you build a separate design especially for mobile visitors.
This is how the web version of news.com.au looks on my phone:
Today there was an unscheduled network outage at our data center which caused interruptions to some of our services. The problem was caused by a faulty network component which started dropping connections to our server. It has been resolved and all services are now running normally.
This is the first problem we've had with our network provider in over 5 years, and they worked rapidly to identify and replace the faulty hardware.
We have also procured a new server on a different network. This machine has twice the processing power, four times the memory and more network bandwidth than our main server. We will be moving our services to the new server in the coming weeks.
Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for your patience.
Recently Twitter made some changes to their platform which made it more difficult for people to share their twitter feeds on their website (we presume this was done in the name of privacy and security). The side-effect is that if you were using our Twitter feed widget on your website you might notice that your tweets are no longer displayed.
Fortunately, we can create a new Twitter widget for your website if you like. Here is an example from Dr Moore's new website - a recent addition to the Sunburnt family.
Or our own feed, which has a different style to Dr Moore's:
If you'd like to add or upgrade the Twitter feed on your website just let us know by replying to this email. As the widget now has to be installed and configured manually there is a small AU$15 charge. We can also help you out with Facebook widgets and integrating your other social networks.
Just let us know.
It is well established that the easier you make it for your customers to order online the more sales you'll make. That's why we've streamlined the checkout process of our Online Store software. The checkout page is now a single form which can be completed easily and rapidly. That means fewer lost customers and more sales.
Below is a screenshot of the new checkout page. If you have any problems with the update, please let us know.
Happy Easter to all! This Easter we are happy to report that our Internet Marketing Platform has reached 500 days of consecutive uptime. That's right - our main server has been slaving away in a busy data center, serving you and your customers for over 500 days without a break. That's why I love technology.
Over the last few years we've been working hard to improve the reliability and response times of our platform and although the work has paid off already we continue to add more monitors, tests and checks for our software and hardware to ensure that our service is available when you need it the most.
So we hope you had a nice Easter break. If you missed the holiday, don't feel bad. Our software was working the whole weekend too.
Sunburnt Internet Marketing is happy to announce that we have recently upgraded our backup server to a more stable and secure network. You'll be glad to know our platform backs up your data on a daily basis so that in the unlikely situation that our network spontaneously explodes your account is safe and can be restored rapidly.
Still, you can never have too many backups. That's why we're also offering a DVD backup service that puts all your account data directly in YOUR hands.
When you order a backup DVD we export all your account data in a platform-agnostic way so that you won't be tied to any particular software if our service fails for you. The backup DVD includes:
The total cost is just $49 including exporting all your data, burning it to DVD and sending it through the post to anywhere in Australia (contact us for postage outside Australia).
If you'd like a backup DVD of your account just send us an email and we'll get onto it straight away.
