Advanced Feed Customization

Lisa Fockens Updated by Lisa Fockens

At this time, the Advance Feed Customization feature is enabled on a per-merchant basis. If you'd like this feature so that you can pursue deeper customization, simply reach out to our team and we'll enable it on your account.

Advanced Feed Customization

The Advanced Feed Customization feature is for shops that require a more bespoke look and feel for their feed. This gives greater control over many UI elements that make up the default Wisepops feed through simple CSS.

Our app provides its own style sheet to render the iframe. The Advanced Feed Customization fields allow you to alter the existing classes to suit the design of your website better. This means that the associated styles for any declared CSS class can be changed, reduced, or added until you achieve the desired results.

How to use the Advanced Feed Customization

Since Wisepops provides its own stylesheet, the scope of customization is bound by existing declared classes. To find the Wisepops stylesheets, you'll want to use the website inspecting tools from your favorite browser. When inspecting the feed, you'll be able to access the stylesheet in full, or selectively by zeroing in on specific elements of interest.

While you're inspecting, it's worthwhile to take some time to understand the html structure of the feed so that you can assess the impact or reach of any changes you wish to make. As with any website, several classes are reused and making changes might result in changes elsewhere, other than where you expect.

When you decide on changes you'd like to make, simply write the css in the field provided on Settings > Feed. As an example, try this and see what happens:

.Teaser {background: blue;}

Limitations of the Advanced Feed Customization Feature

Since Advanced Feed Customization relies exclusively on altering existing CSS classes, it's not possible to create new ones. As long as your imagination can be realized within the existing classes, you can build the experience you want!
