But you can also create your own unique style: using your colors, setting image borders, boxed news margins. Everything directly from an handy user interface and with few clicks.
WooCommerce integration and Quick News
Swift Box could be a great way to display your products. Yes, you can also use WooCommerce as content source!
Even in this case you can choose to get one/more/any category products in few seconds.
Or maybe you need to spread quick news, without creating a WordPress post. Swift Box is the solution to this need, coming with a special post type not shown on website pages but just fetchable by the plugin.
Plus you can feature each news with a youtube/vimeo video or also with a Soundcloud track!
- obviously, the plugin requires a responsive theme to have a responsive behaviour
- jQuery v1.5 is the minimum requirement (v1.7 to also use lightbox)
- RSS feeds needs to have a standard structure and contain texts as well as contents date
