The Text Input Areas in this column are sized to 563 pixels wide to match the width of the photos in the column. Being able to set widths to Text Input Areas is an important FreeForm feature either lining things up, to provide a left and right margin for the text, and to keep text in an easy to read width.|
If a layout like this will be used on eBay consider assigning an overall width of 940 pixels up in Global Features to make it work well in eBay's new selling page expected to be launched early 2009.
In the long run, more important than the capability to create templates, FreeForm provides a convenient interface for using what you have created.|
As you build individual item descriptions or web pages you can alter your layouts 'on the fly' to accommodate more or less photos, more or less text areas. Replace, add, remove, anything desired while leaving the parts that do not need to be altered alone. All without having to learn or edit HTML.
You can leave placeholders in your templates by inserting any type of Input Area at any location without entering anything into it. Rather than continuously inserting or removing Input Areas you may just blank out the entry areas and FreeForm ignores them in Preview and when producing the HTML results.
There are several ways to create links in FreeForm, one of which is by use of the WYSIWYG feature of Text Input Areas. The WYSIWYG is like eBay's standard item description tool but way more powerful. To the right the WYSIWYG is used to insert a picture in with the text, assign a border to it, and add vertical spacing. It could, also via the WYSIWYG interface, be made into a link.|
Here I'm imagining an attractive vertical logo or collage of items for sale. More and/or smaller pictures could be shown instead each having a different (or the same) destination link assigned to them.
In the samples a variety of cross promotion methods are shown. Any and all are available to use with your own layouts. The most successful cross promotions include incentives for shoppers to visit your store or other items for sale. With FreeForm you have the flexibility to use the space creatively and produce whatever works best for you.
About this sample:|
This layout demonstrates FreeForm's Builder'B' capability for creating a traditional two column layout with pictures on the left, text boxes on the right. Cross selling via a category listing is nested under the text boxes in the right column.
The Frame Builder and above and below frames capability for Input Areas are used creatively to display sparkles around the header.
It is best when using a two column layout such as this that the photos be no wider than 563 pixels to allow room for the text on side. The height is less important so you can still display large photos provided they are oriented vertically instead of horizontally (portrait - camera turned sideways). Perfect for clothing items.
As with all the sample starter templates you are free to change colors, re-arrange content, add or remove content, use your own graphics and backgrounds, etc. The samples are intended to inspire you with ideas and to demonstrate different types of layouts you can create using FreeForm. You are not required or expected to use them exactly as they are set up here.
When it comes down to it you can also depend on Rob for assistance with details such as creating links and fine tuning arrangements. FreeForm includes the ability to save everything you create within FreeForm itself. That enables sharing what you are working on with Rob who can then access and help 'hands on' to achieve what you desire.
FreeForm only produces HTML known to be compatible with eBay. That combined with Rob's 10 years experience helping eBay sellers and FreeForm's wonderful flexibility virtually guarantees learning to use FreeForm will be time well spent.
