Fresh Store Booster WordPress Plugin - Widgets and Usage Guide

This guide will go over the Widgets that come with the Fresh Store Booster WordPress Plugin.

The images below show Fresh Store Builder installed on the main domain and WordPress in a sub-folder called /blog/. The WP blog is using a matching theme we have for one of the FSB themes called FLUID. You dont need to use a FSB WP theme for the Fresh Store Booster WP plugin to work. The plugin will work in your current theme. The image below showing the WP blog looks empty because I have not added many posts to the wordpress blog, its a new blog and I have not had the time to do some posts.

To set Widgets for your blog. Login to your WP-admin and click on the Appearance tab/ Widgets link.

 2. On the Widgets page you will see the widgets available for you to move over to your sidebar. You can see the active widgets I have and compare it to the images above in this guide, you will see the FSB Cart, Categories, Best Seller and Special Offers widgets enabled. If you click on the dropdown for each widget, you will have different options, please take the time to go thru the widgets.

 If your wordpress theme supports using widgets on your homepage then you can use the FSB widgets to set a static homepage for wordpress, as shown in the image below. You would use a basic TEXT widget to add your unique content and then under it you can place the Best Sellers/Special Offers Widget.

 On the Widgets page, if your theme supports widgets on the homepage then you just need to drag the widgets over to the homepage. Add a TEXT widget for your content. Then the FSB best/Special offers widgets.

 The Best Sellers and Special Offers widgets have options to set for them. If you are going to use the widgets on your homepage then you want to adjust the Columns and how many items to user. The image below shows how you can quickly set the products/columns


Product in page
 Products can be embedded in either posts or pages within WordPress by using the shortcode [fsbProduct].
 To embed a product within a page or a post you must specify either its product_id code from the Fresh Store or its Amazon Product ASIN. This is done by setting the parameters as shown:
 [fsbProduct product_id=’THE_PRODUCT_ID’]
 [fsbProduct asin=’THE_PRODUCT_ASIN’]
 Required Parameters
 asin – the Amazon Product asin code OR product_id – the Fresh Store product id code
 Optional Parameters:
 Size: Specifies the maximum width of the image and auto adjusts the height
 Default 150px
 Alignment: Aligns the embedded product div within the page
 left (default), right, center
 [fsbProduct asin=’B0002HY7KA’ size=’300′ align=’right’]
 [fsbProduct product_id=’727′ size=’300′ align=’left’]

How to add a shortcode to a blog page or post.

Go to your WP Dashboard and edit the page or post that you want to embed the product in. Then just copy and paste the short codes shown above this text and then replace it with your ASIN. You will also have option for the image size and if you want to align it to the left/right. (VERY IMPORTANT, THE ASIN YOU SET IN THE SHORTCODE MUST BE ADDED TO YOUR FSB STORE FIRST, SO PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ADD IT TO YOUR FSB STORE FIRST)

 Here is how the item will appear on your post. I just did this quickly but when you are adding a good size article to your post, you can really position these items nicely into your content and get those clicks.

 Customization Options for your Fresh Store Builder WP Plugin
