New Product Feeds Update On Vorb

Postby Tama on Wed 8/Apr/09 9:41am

Over the past few weeks we've been working on Product Feeds - which pull products from our Vorb Supporters directly into Vorb so you can check out tempting goodies at your leisure.

Yesterday we made a major update which means all available products are now browsable and searchable. There are over 3,000 products on Vorb from 5 online retailers. We will be adding more retailers/ products over the next few months.

Products are currently not categorised but we are working on that and will integrate the products in with the channels to make them easier to browse and the correct product appear with the appropriate content (road cycling product in Road Cycling). Note that using the site search will also pull up products related to your search terms.

At the moment you can check out Vorb Supporters stores here: rez_display.php?c=200&mode=stores

Or you can just launch in and look at all of the products on offer here: rez_display.php?c=1&mode=products&sort=random (there's no easy link to this - best to just type what you're after into the search box.)

Enjoy :)

I've added a poll as I've heard from some people that the description popups are behaving all funny like.

Mouse over the products to see what we're on about: rez_display.php?c=1&mode=products&sort=random

Are you going to link these through to the stores themselves?or have i missed something?

Also why do I have to backspace to delete half your quote instead of left click select backspace?

You've probably missed something - if you want to go directly to the store there's the rotating logo on the left of every page or the text links at the bottom of every page. If you want to go directly to the product on the store's site just click the product on Vorb.

I honestly have no idea what you are talking about.

That works on the products listed under the vorb supporters part of the page but not the products above.

That's weird - it works fine on our machines.

Argh... Inter-bloody-net Bloody-explorer - will check it out on IE.

On the Ground Effects ones, the product name is just a TLS. Others seem to be the full description. Is it possible to change this? Other than that they are good.

I'm not seeing any pop ups. When I mouse over the products at the bottom of this page they highlight, and I can click through to the site, but no popups seem to be appearing? I'm running Chrome here, and have popups set to notify but that is not happening either.

Ahhhhh.....just tried it on IE (6) and now I know what's meant to happen. :)

Glad they are not working with Chrome. Dont fix it thanks. Yuk. :crazy:

It's a DHTML/AJAX bubble - not a horrible pop-up window.
