Four Layout Summary
Nova Clean is a fully conversion rate optimized style, using a contemporary, precise layout with easy-to-read fonts. Instantly brandable using a customizable color palette, simply add your logo and products. Suitable for any and all e-commerce industries.
Nova Bold gets right to the point. Limited use of white space and thick, strong lines make this style great for sporting goods, tactical gear, and other down-to-business industries.
Nova Elegant is delicate, spacious and chic. Let your products or images take center stage with fine lines and a simple, polished background. This beautiful Nova layout is great for florists, jewelers, and anyone with an artistic product line.
Nova Modern is technology-forward, with a full-width mega banner to showcase your brand, service or number one product. Using more advanced components and animations, this style has the ‘wow’ factor down pat. Great for technology companies, or anyone who needs to make a big first impression.
Frequently Asked Questions
Go to Products on your BigCommerce dashboard. In list view, you’ll see a star on the far right of each product. Simply click the star next to the product you’d like to feature on the homepage of your site, and the star will turn blue to indicate the change was made. Featured products will show up immediately on your homepage after a refresh (no “Save” needed). If the number of featured product you’ve chosen to show in the theme customizer is less than the number of products you’ve marked as featured, your homepage will rotate through your featured products, showing new ones on each new visit.
How can I add more reviews to the Testimonials section of the homepage?
Go to Marketing > Banners on your BigCommerce dashboard. Click Create A Banner. Name your banner/testimonial, and then add your review to the Banner Content section, including quotation marks and the review-givers name if desired. Next, select to show this banner on your Home Page. Finally, scroll down and select Bottom of Page for banner location. Click Save.
Do I need the epicToolbox with the Nova theme?
No, though we highly recommend it for all the added features you’ll enjoy with your Nova theme. And currently, the epicToolbox only integrates with Nova. We are also working on a version of the epicToolbox that integrates with other BigCommerce themes in the future….stay tuned!
