What is the scrolling banner section?
The Scrolling banner is a line of moving text that can be used to showcase breaking news, highlight up to date information or briefly describe exciting updates across the entire store. This can be useful in attracting customers' attention, and therefore helpful in directing them to specific areas of the store that may increase conversion rates.
How to set up the scrolling banner section
- Open the Theme Editor and add the Scrolling banner section.
- In the main settings, there are two important settings to consider:
Speed: Use the slider to increase or decrease the speed that the text scrolls. The more text that is entered, the faster the banner will scroll.
Direction: Right to left or Left to right can be selected.
- To stencil text, either select Stencil all text or detail the letters or words that you wish to stencil in the Text to stencil input field below.
- A Background custom image can be selected from your Shopify image library. The scrolling text will show over this static image.
- In the Style settings, a Color scheme can be selected:
Standard - This will take the Theme Settings > General > Text color.
Alternate colors - This will take the Theme Settings > Colors > Alternate sections color.
Custom colors - Colors can be selected in the boxes below
