My text is not very visible on the slider image, what can I do?
If your slider text overlaps with the image you used and is not very visible, you can either change the image with a different, less busy background or change the slider text colour from the admin panel.

 

My website is too slow, what should I do?
Please check your slider and product images. Getshop automatically optimizes your photos, however if you upload very large images to start with, optimization might not be enough. We recommend using photos no larger than 2MB.

If after you've checked this, if your site is still too slow, please contact us. This might be due to server issues or too high traffic, in which case you would need to update your server package.

 

I changed the slider image, but the old image is still displaying. What I am doing wrong?
If you changed the slider image, please ensure that the new image you uploaded has a different name than the previous one, or it will not upload.
