FAQ (Kings Road)
Questions we get asked regularly about Kings Road.
Why don't you have tabs on the product page?
Over the years working on Conversion Rate Optimization for paying clients we have gathered hundreds of thousands of real user sessions showing that only around 1% of visitors click tabs on product pages.
Tabs are useful if you want to hide content away from visitors so they will never see it. If you look at one of the leaders in ecommerce, Amazon, who pioneered the use of tabs on their site, you won't see any tabs on the product page now.
Why do you not recommend showing sharing icons on the product pages?
By analyzing hundreds of thousands of real user sessions we found that product pages without social sharing buttons convert better than those with. Anything that can potentially take visitors away from your site can cause them to get distracted and not complete a purchase.
For an in-depth look at some data, take a look at this report by VWO.
To promote your products with social sharing, we recommend using these features on the order complete step of the checkout, and in your transactional follow-up emails.
Which navigation design is best for my store?
Kings Road includes two styles of navigation that can be displayed in multiple configurations to provide a unique layout to your brand.
For dropdown menus to appear, you need to set up a menu display depth of at least 2 levels deep.
To set this, in your store Control Panel, go to Store Setup > Store Settings and click the Display tab. Under the Category Setting heading, look for the Menu Display Depth field.
To create fly out menus, set the menu depth to at least 3.
This looks best if you configure your categories 3 levels deep. If you have not set up your entire category structure to work with the mega menu, choose one of the alternative options above.
Should I use the simple footer?
The simple footer presents an alternative footer design for smaller or simple stores. It will condense the navigation to just pages, and present the brands as a single link.
Other display options are respected such as payment methods, the newsletter and social icons.
The simple footer has additional color options for the newsletter strip.
