Hi Scott,

I had a question for you . I want to add a widget (Instagram feed) to the footer of my site, but I can only seem to paste the HTML code so that it is
in either the left or right text box on the home page. This makes any
widget off-center.

Is there a way to paste into a footer or add anything below the text boxes?

Also, I'm wondering if there's been any progress being made towards a more
mobile-friendly site. I've been using this platform for many years and I
feel that it's becoming dated, with all the other options out there that
are mobile optimized. I know that this also affects my Google rankings.
Just hoping that this might be a priority for you guys. My business is
growing and might need something else with more features in the near
future.

Thanks,

Rae

    Hi Rae,

    If you send us the code for your widget, we can try to place it on the home page below the text boxes for you.

    Re: your other question, your CraftLaunch site has had a mobile-optimized version since April 2017. I'm attaching some screenshots to show how it looks. If you're seeing any issues on your device, let us know!

    Hi Scott,

     Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.

     I guess I should have been more specific- we've talked this year about how
    the mobile site doesn't show homepage text boxes (where I have an intro
    video who is important for my site) and the sections thumbnails can't be
    chosen or edited- it looks like they are just a random item? For mobile,
    it seems like the only homepage information I'm able to convey to customers
    is in the text overlay on the banner images. For what I do it's really
    important to be able to have text/ video to explain what I'm all about.

    The widget that I'm trying to add is below- I'm not sure I have the size
    right for the space I'm working with, but I am able to adjust if you let me
    know the parameters. If this is possible for other widgets or more text, I
    would love to be able to add content to the home page that's centered ;)

    <div style="position: relative; height: 16px; width: 100%; overflow:
    hidden; padding-top:33.33333333333333%;"><iframe src="//
    widgets-code.websta.me/w/2245f6690298?ck=MjAxOC0wOS0wNVQyMDoxOTozNC4wMDBa"
    class="websta-widgets" allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0"
    scrolling="no" style="position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%;
    height: 100%;"></iframe> <!-- WEBSTA WIDGETS - widgets.websta.me --></div>

    Thanks again for all your help.

    Hi Scott,

    Just wanted to follow up with this since I’ve also received this email from
    google since we spoke last. I’m wondering your thoughts on if it’s possible
    to make these changes

    Hi Rachel,

    Is there any more detail on which pages it is detecting problems on? We
    did a usability test on the mobile site when it was designed and didn't
    find any problems, but we were only checking the non-customized pages (like
    the home and shop pages). When I run the Google Mobile Friendly test
    <https://search.google.com/test/mobile-friendly> on your site it doesn't
    come up with any issues on the home page, shop page or individual item
    pages.

    Also, we tried to add that widget to your home page and received some
    errors from the vendor, but we'll see if there's another way we can do it!

    Hi Scott,

     The example page they gave for all three issues was the same:

    http://www.origamicustoms.com/160364189/custom-reversible-corset-back-two-in-one-adjustable-one-piece-swimsuit-any-size-32-colors-and-prints-made-to-measure/

     It lists the affected pages as "1", however since all the items are listed
    the same way, I assume it applies to all the listings.

    Hi Rae,

    That's odd, when we put that page into the mobile-friendly test it comes up
    okay!

    Thanks Scott.

    Sorry to bring so many things to your attention this week.

     I was just noticing that a few items aren't showing on my craftlaunch
    site. For example, most of the items in my "inserts" category, and this
    item:

    https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/215432872/custom-6-in-1-reversible-bodycon-bamboo?ref=listings_manager_grid

     I did a refresh of the items last week.

     Thanks,

    Hi Rachel,

    Sorry we didn't get back to you right away -- we did a forced refresh of
    your items as soon as we got your message yesterday and everything should
    be synched up. Let us know if anything looks out of place!
