Freestuff Area Improvements
June 13, 2013 11:27 am
Take a look inside the new improvements to the Freestuff area.
Renderosity is pleased to announce the latest release of improvements made to the Freestuff Area.
The Freestuff section at Renderosity is one of the most frequented areas of the site and visitors will now enjoy a more consistent look to that of the MarketPlace. We're confident that the improvements made to this corner of the Renderosity site have enhanced the overall look and functionality for our users.
The next time you visit the Freestuff area, you'll be greeted with larger thumbnail images and increased sizes of the main promotional image. This will allow the user to see the product in greater detail before proceeding with the download process.
MarketPlace vendors will also be excited to see that they now have the opportunity to offer a link to Freestuff items directly from their product pages. These vendors will also be able to link their Freestuff items to associated products in their own store. This will give users quick access to free products that can be used in conjunction with a purchased item.
Interested in seeing this new linking feature in action? Please Click Here to visit a Freestuff item from Renderosity vendor, -Wolfie-. Once you arrive on this page, scroll down beneath the product/artist details area and click on the 'Related Products' tab. It's here that you'll find the related MarketPlace item. (Screenshot below).
In staying with the example above, one can conversely visit the MarketPlace product page and scroll beneath the Product Requirments area to the tabbed areas and click on the 'Free Stuff' tab to see any all related Freestuff items. (Screenshot below).

It's always difficult trying to please everyone, but I firmly believe this new layout will create fresh interest in all things Poser, which inevitably will increase sales. I also think other sites have taken a backward step and am considering removing my name from their mailing list. Congratulations Renderosity personnel on a job well done!
Very great improvement, like it very much! Two suggestions just because I can't keep my ideas to myself :) - 1- Can the boxes in each row be made a uniform size? I dislike the wave effect across the bottom of each row. - 2- I think the vendors would appreciate another ad banner between the 3rd and 4th rows even if it was an alias from one on the home page. Free stuff still has to be supported somehow!
