Video 11: Overview of Loop Templates

In this part of the series, we dive deep into the world of loop layouts with Divi BodyCommerce. We’ll unravel what loop layouts are, how they are structured, and most importantly, how to craft your own. Divi BodyCommerce offers three approaches to leverage loop layouts: using pre-made loop layouts (as seen in a previous lesson), coding your own (with a linked tutorial in the description for guidance), and utilizing the Divi Builder along with Divi BodyCommerce-specific modules to create custom designs.

Key Components of a Loop Layout:

  • Product Cards: A fundamental element, typically including a thumbnail image, product title, and an add-to-cart button, complete with pricing.
  • Customizability: Each element within the layout is styleable, allowing for full control over its appearance.
  • Simplicity vs Complexity: Whether using pre-built templates or creating your own, loop layouts can range from straightforward to intricate, depending on your needs.

Expanding Your Toolkit:

  • Modules Galore: Thumbnail modules, product buttons, attributes, pricing, and more – Divi BodyCommerce includes a variety of modules to tailor your layout.
  • Flexibility: The ability to integrate standard modules, such as text and images, and unique elements like brand logos for a distinctive touch.

Going Beyond the Basics:

  • Coding Your Own Loop Layout: For those inclined towards coding, creating your own loop template offers the highest level of customization.
  • Inspiration Sources: Websites like Dribbble and even the Apple store page serve as excellent references for innovative loop layout designs.

This lesson is not just about learning; it’s about applying these concepts to create unique and effective e-commerce experiences. So, buckle up and get ready for an insightful journey into customizing your WooCommerce store with Divi BodyCommerce.
