Adding Global Videos to Your Auction123 Template

You can now add videos to the Auction123 system that will appear globally in your Auction123 VDPs and eBay templates. Once added, you can then update your template to position the new global video wherever you want it displayed. This feature is especially useful when you have a dealership commercial or marketing video you would like included in all of your listings. This update also lets you display multiple videos within your Auction123 template.

Template Editor Enhancement – Adding Multiple Image Viewers / Inserting Content Between Images

Image 1

We’ve added a new feature to the template editor which allows you to edit how your vehicle images display in your Auction123 template. With this enhancement, you can add multiple Image Viewers to your template and set which image, or group of images, will display in each Viewer. This provides the opportunity to insert descriptions, marketing graphics, eBusiness cards, or Auction123 widgets between your images, offering even more ways to customize the look and feel of your Auction123 template.

Editing Your Template:

Access the template editor by clicking “Template” under the Preference section in the left-hand navigation menu.

To get started, be sure your image Viewer is set to the Full image layout. This feature is not available if your template is using the Paged or Thumbnail image layout. To switch to the Full image layout, hover your mouse over the Image Viewer and click the pencil icon in the upper right-hand corner to select the Full option. If your template is already set to the Full image layout, click the edit pencil to open the Image Viewer editor.

From this edit screen, you can select which image or set of images you would like to display in this section of the template. Once set, continue adding the Image Viewer throughout your template, setting which group of images should display within each widget until you are finished. If your vehicles vary in the number of images they have, be sure to set one of the Image Viewers to display up to image 300. This will ensure all images will be shown within the template.
