We’ve just issued new version of Altima Lookbook Professional, an extension for Magento eCommerce that allows online retailers to create interactive sliders for their store.
The demo is available at http://lookbook.altimawebsystems.com
New version, numbered 1.5.0 is released August 11 and has the next important updates:
- Lookbooks are responsive now. We have been asked about that numerous time by our clients and finally that feature has arrived – size of Altima Lookbook Pro sliders now can adopt to screen size and therefore can be used easily with responsive themes like new one that supported by default in Magento CE version 1.9
- Naturally the extenison is compatible with Magento CE version 1.9 now;
- Support of jQuery 1.10
- Minor bugfixes;
Few notes about responsiveness.
First, placement of hotspots is defined on the load of page, so if you just resize browser window you’ll notice that hotspots are getting wrong. It isn’t ideal but shouldn’t affect most of the users who just load the website and don’t play with its window size. After page reload the placement is corrected.
Second, if the area for lookbook becoming equal or smaller that certain size (400 pixels wide now) it degrades to the simple slideshow, without hotspots. The reason of that is that our tests indicated that it isn’t a good user experience to operate hotspots on small screens. It is possible however to change that limit in configuration file if you really want it.
