Our little lemon with Ecwid shop

Hi folks,

we moved our Ecwid-shop to a new domain and chose the little lemon (Greek “lemonaki”) to be our new brand name.

The design is lovely based on the Adventure Pro template from https://www.sparkle-themes.com for which I send my thanks to @Chris !

The layouts I chose are 320, 960, 1200 and 1920. That is because I started to work on all 6 layouts and then got rid of the 480 and 768 which I then scaled automatically.

Check out https://www.lemonaki.de and let me know your thoughts and comments.




Love the new name @ThomasC! :slight_smile:

The one obvious one I could bring your attention to is the website looks far too big (hero, images, text) on a 27" monitor which the Ecwid Shop isn’t replicating.

How is your online store performing? Are you getting the needed traction?

Thank you so much, Hendrik! Yeah, we love our little lemon a lot as well.

You are absolutely right about the website being very big on the 27" monitor. As our customers are mostly older and appreciate a website that is easier to read, I would like to figure out how to enlarge the fonts and images on the Ecwid store (which obviously I have not figured out yet).

In the meantime I have put the 1200 and 1920 to rest and activated automatical scaling. So far I cannot see any difference.

As for the performance, well, as our Ecwid shop is a side project (our main business is teaching traditional Greek dances, see https://www.chamalidis.com) and needs more attention as far as SEO and advertisement goes. Our customers are mostly people we know and we also find new customers on our dance seminars. But, as a webshop we are very happy with what Ecwid offers and it fits nicely into our Sparkle website and performs well from a technical standpoint.

Just one thing that did not work on the Sparkle part of www.lemonaki.com: The “Sparkle” Ecwid basket and product search would not work and only show a place holder. So I had to use the external content feature and fill in the code Ecwid provides. That worked but I was limited in terms of color choice (none).

Thanks again for your input!

Hi Thomas…
From memory you can increase the font (using CSS) by asking Ecwid to override what it has already in place. Yeh… you would have to touch a bit of code - not ideal.

I have the Sparkle Ecwid basket working nicely and I was able to colour it as well. I also have Sparkle Ecwid Search working as well. You can see it here - Shop | TNG&T Tasmania

Also good to hear that Ecwid is working for you as it should! :slight_smile:
