Default Images

Hello

Is there a way to site my datafeedr store so that the images are not being 'scaled' down for the thumbnails by the broswer, (which slows things down a LOT) and instead datafeedr just resizes the images appropriately...

I am already hosting the images locally on my server.

Secondly, serious question, has anyone ever outsourced the building and configuring of their datafeedr to someone cheaply in India / Far East and if so, would you be able to recommend their details to me?

I have a designer working on the PSDs, but the configuration has taken me more time than planned and I am not getting the hang of it very well, so I want to get someone competent to do this and then have them apply the PSDs and make the store look perfect, as it is taking me too long as a novice!

thanks

Unfortunately, the merchant is using the thumbnail field of their data feed to insert very large images. The only solution I can think of is to use a script like this to resize and crop your images. Since your images are stored locally, this should work.

I have not done this but I do often see jobs posted at oDesk (et. al.) so it might be worth a try.

Ok thanks for the response on that.

Regarding the overall design of the end store, is anything possible, as long as the CSS can be applied to Wordpress?

Getting a good designer on board, but just wondering if using Datafeedr puts any kind of design restrictions on the site that we should know about before the designers are briefed.

i.e. can the designer design completely as they normally would for a WP site.

I won't say anything is possible but you can do a lot and have control over most of the HTML and all of the CSS.

There are no restrictions.
