If you click on content or click to include an image in the banner – the settings for that property will appear on the right.
Image and Offer Settings
The Image and the Offer Badge settings rely on each other (for some design patterns).
In the Halloween banner image settings, you are free to upload your desired image to the WooCommerce banner. You get the option to change the image scaling, width, and height. And you have the border and margin settings as well to make the image look better.
As for the Offer Badge Settings – it gives you the option to show the Product Discounts you are offering. There are certain badge styles from which you can choose from.
Also, you can choose where the banner will show using the Badge Position Setting. Furthermore, you have the Badge Position which helps you show the discount badge either with the image or in the entire banner.
The Halloween banner background is a crucial setting to showcase the banner in the right way.
The Background Fill is one of the important settings where you can change the background between a solid color, color gradient, or image.
Also, you can change settings like the Box Shadow, Banner Radius, and Padding. Furthermore, you can turn the banner into a clickable link by enabling the Banner link option.
The Banner Button is another important feature. You can simply make changes to the banner button settings by clicking on it (it works for other components on the banner as well).
The banner settings are very easy to control. It’s like the ProductX button group.
Finally, there’s the content setting. You can change the padding and margin settings from the Halloween Banner control.
However, if you are looking to change the text in the banner, simply click on the text you want to change.
You will be able to change the settings manually from the settings to the right. You have granular-level controls for the content.
These are the key settings you can access for the banner.
