A products page is an effective way of displaying your products and connecting your store to your website.
These days, websites without background videos run the risk of appearing old-fashioned. Even dinosaurish,
There’s nothing wrong with dinosaurs, or with looking like one. Dinosaurs are cool. Unless they’re chasing you of course.
But our new background videos have landed, exploded and changed the game. They have wiped out the old standards for beautiful websites, and have replaced them with a new standard that will leave all other websites looking like fossils.
Luckily, both our existing clients and our new ones have access to this brilliant new feature we’ve introduced, and we’d like to share its benefits with you today.
A superhero is only super because he or she stands out amongst the crowd. If we were a planet of flying, teleporting, time-freezing super-strong aliens, then we wouldn’t think there was anything super about us. When it comes to using formatting methods such as bold, italics, capitals or centering, all of these little text-enhancing superheroes will only stand out if they are used sparingly, in the right place, and when absolutely necessary…

When July 2018 hits, Google Chrome will make sure a strong warning will pop up on any website that has not yet updated from “http” to “https”. The warning will include something along the lines of “Website Not Secure”. Here’s how to avoid it.
Within your DotGO website you can group your items into categories. This makes it easier to manage your store, and for your visitors to find what they want.
Once you’ve created your groups and added your items you need to link them to your UK business website.
The most effective way of doing this is to create a ‘Products’ page. The products page shows visitors all the groups of items you have within your website. Each group has a representative image and title that lead to the group when clicked.
This is an example of a layout for a ‘Products’ page.
1. Create a table to hold the text and images.
2. Add the text & images
3. Create the link from the text & Images to the Groups pages
1. Place the cursor on blank page you are creating your products page on.
2. Click Insert/Edit Table
In the Table Properties box enter the following fields to create a table to hold 9 images.
3. Click Add to website
The table that appears on your page will consist of a faint grid, as depicted in the image below.

1. Place your cursor in the first box of the grid created in Step 1
2. Click Insert Edit Images
3. Select from your image library / upload an image that represents one of your groups. Set the image size to approximately 200 wide (leave the height)
The size of the images can be adjusted once all the images have been placed.
4. Click Add to Website
5. Repeat 1 – 4 each time adding an image that represents a group to a new box of the grid.
1. Text can be added once all the images have been inserted.
2. Right click an image in the first row
3. In the menu that appears select Row then Insert Row After
4. A new row of boxes will appear underneath the images
5. Underneath each image insert the name of the group that the image represents
6. Repeat 1 – 5 for each row of your table until all your images have a title
1. Click the first image to select it
2. Click Insert/Edit Link
3. Click Webpage
4. Click Internal Webpage
5. Click Group
6. Select the Group you want to link to from the drop down list
7. Click Add to Website
8. Repeat 1 – 7 until each image has been linked to the group it represents
13. Then repeat steps 1-7 this time highlighting the text to create a link to the groups.
