Be aware, if pasting the widget code on Blogger, it'll look weird in compose mode - to see what it really looks like, preview or publish your post.

Titan Moon of Saturn vacation advert space tourism Poster

Do you know any Titans?

Titan Moon of Saturn vacation advert space tourism Poster

A wonderful, retro-style vacation advert. Ride The Tide through the Throat of Kraken! Frigid and alien, yet similar to our own planet billions of years ago, Saturn's largest moon, Titan, has a thick atmosphere, organic-rich chemistry and a surface shaped by rivers and lakes of liquid ethane and methane. Cold winds sculpt vast regions of hydrocarbon-rich dunes. There may even be cryovolcanoes of cold liquid water. NASA's Cassini orbiter was designed to peer through Titan's perpetual haze and unravel the mysteries of this planet-like moon.

Zazzle Forum sharer - last(?) new Nifty tool

I've added what I think will be the last new tool to the Nifty Promo Control Panel for Zazzlers. It's another individual product sharer but this time for sharing to the Zazzle forum.

Yes, that means it produces BBCode and all you do is copy and paste it in a new reply on the forum you want.

Mostly people will use it on the Show Me forum. Here's one I shared:

Get going with your own - here's where you find it:

Click the image to try it on your own store. All you do is fill in your storeid and referral code above that section, up in Step1 first.

Here's what the new Product Grid Expander sharer page in Nifty looks like in action:

Click the image to try it yourself.

Take your own for a spin here:

It opens and scrolls to the right spot to show you where you click when you're ready to promote. First, though, you've got to give your own store id and ref id to make it yours in Step 1.

Then, if you want, give a search term to be more specific.

New Nifty Tool - Product Grid Expander

You Zazzlers will love this new option. I've added an alternative product grid sharer page now, inspired by Google's image search.

You know when you click on a thumbnail there, it slides a larger version into view and let's you visit the page? Well that's roughly what the new product grid expander sharer page does.

Here's where you get at it to make your own:

You can see it in action via this link.

Nifty enhancements and general improvements

I've now brought the individual product sharing tools for Facebook, Pinterest and G+ into line with the one for Twitter.

Now all allow you to share a link to Zazzle's latest (.com) coupon codes.

Other improvements

I've added a spinner to the sharing pages so it's obvious that something's happening while the pages are loading. It's a small thing but does improve engagement for your visitors.

See it in action with the product grid sharer page for my fine art canvases.
