I’ve been looking for a way to show my canvases through a flippable catalog for quite a while.
Here is something that I think does the job.
And they said that you couldn’t do Flash on WP!
I like it so much I am thinking of putting my whole Dallas catalog on it, and also all my upcoming trunk shows.
The question is, though, what do you think of it?
Hate it, or flipping out with delirious excitement?
Let me know, as the tech crew are getting ready to do some funky things with this on the store catalog site, once they get back from loolligaging on the beach with their SUP boards! Think: custom catalog widgets!
ps Laurel Burch’s name is spelled wrong in this test catalog. It shall of course be fixed later.
pps Issuu has a downloadable Android app, which
I, er, the beach crew will be testing soon — especially since this WP embed hack doesn’t work when viewed on an Android smartphone. Apparently there’s some useful Issuu earch feature that was supposed to have been added.
In case the embedded flip cat hack (i.e., in normal human being language, what you see above) doesn’t work for you on a smartphone, try this link. (UPDATE: the link doesnt work on a Galaxy S5, for some reason. I’ll provide the workaround soon.)
ppps If you have any trouble zooming in and out of the flip catalog, there is a kind of horizontal knob thingie on the top left that you can adjust to any size you want. Also, you can immediately get rid of the Issuu clip come-on banner at the beginning by clicking on the red + sign.
