Xsellx's new eBay Compliant
CSS galleries consist of three parts.
- Plug-in: The HTML structure placed in your listing to provide the framework.
- Skin: The gallery stylesheet or "skin" gives it a unique appearance
- Data: The seller's listing data is displayed in the gallery
These all come together in a single plug-in code for your pages.
For members, both the skins and listing data are stored on our server.
For guests, only the skins are stored on our server.
The HTML framework is nearly the same for all plug-ins, while the skins and data differ by user.
Thus, when a plug-in is created, you will see three changeable values:
the xsellx user name, the search#, and the skin#.
To switch to an entirely different gallery, only these three values need be changed.
By creating identical, or nearly identical, small plug-in code blocks,
members can use bulk edit tools to add, remove, or edit galleries within listings.
When logged in as a member, you will have access to your custom skins.
The custom styles you have made and saved to your account will be listed on the left,
and are not affected by the styling tool to the right.
Using your own custom stylesheet offers maximum flexibility when making changes.
Please contact us for a free custom skin.
Designers will love the infinite CSS possibilities available to custom stylesheets.
The stylesheet tool is just a start and provides many options,
but a CSS designer can skin a gallery that looks nothing like the samples!
The stock stylesheets are available to both guests and logged in members.
The stock styles are hosted on our server and come with a few selectable features.
You may also change the colors, which will be saved with your plug-in code.
Members who use stock skins will still have small plug-in code,
but it must also carry color selections and some gallery values
and is not as flexible if changes are needed.
However, members can save a stock skin to their own custom list,
and can then select it from the list for maximum flexibility.
Guests will be accessing our hosted stock skins,
but guest plug-in codes will also include listing data.
The listing data does not update, so, when the data becomes stale,
guests must revisit this tool to create a new plug-in
(or to generate new listing data to insert into the old plug-in).
