Within the SpreadShop you can define different settings and also write your own CSS. What these settings mean and what you can adjust in your CSS is explained below.


How to define a background color for a specific design

If you have white designs on a white background, this might cause some problems.
We currently do not offer a "build in" solution for this but you can fix this on your own.


What do I need to do:

  • analyse the picture element of the design you want to have an individual background color
  • get the "article ID" of the underlying article that looks like id="article-xxxxxxx"


  • Go to your shop administration > adanced settings >css and add the following line to your css #article-104509042{background-color:#fae !important}
    • replace 104509042 with the article ID you found
    • replace #fae with the color of your choice
    • the !important is needed so that the color get's applied

  • Save the settings and visit your shop

Shop Background Image

To customise the background of the shop, you can either upload an image or specify a custom colour. To use a graphic, you upload it in the graphic overview Then, in the settings under Mobile Shop, you can adjust the field spreadshop.css class .customPageBackground {} as follows:

.customPageBackground {background-image:url("/[shop name]/shopData/images/Filename“)}

More information on adjusting the positioning can be found here

Shop Background Colour

If you don't want an image but rather a colour as the background, use the class under spreadshop.css .customPageBackground {} There you enter your background-colour: # FFFA02 (for this example, yellow) and save.


Image size

The default size of the product thumbnail currently measures 300 x 300 pixels. If you display less than four products in a row, the image size adjusts to the width of the shop and the quality of the preview image is no longer sufficient. To fix this, the number of pixels can be changed. in steps of 100 to 1200 pixels.

Articles per page

Under "List Loading Count" you specify how many product images are displayed by default when loading the shop. Below the specified product number a "more products" button appears. Clicking on it displays more products of the specified number. If all available products are displayed, the "more products" button disappears.

Social Media Buttons

With the "Social Media Buttons" option, you can activate buttons with symbols for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest for your Shop. Both you and your customers can use these to share products on the usual social channels.

Show Shop Categories

With the option "Show Shop Categories", you can show your Shop categories in a menu to the left of the products display for easier navigation.


The CSS can be completely self-defined. The existing CSS serves as an example that can be used to try out different settings. To remove previous changes, simply delete everything and click on "save". The sample CSS is now back in the initial state.

Below is a selection of definable CSS classes that are useful for the shop. They are a meant to make styling your shop easier. Of course other classes can also be customised:

    How do you change the browser tab from the default shop number?  I want it to say something else.

    1. Hi there,

      You can define your shop name in the basic shop settings. This name will be shown in the tab.

      This worked for me on the home icon. Keep in mind, changes take time.

      .SprdMain .SprdHeader .item.Icon {
      display: none;

    .SprdMain .Footer .trustedFooter {
    1.  background-color  #666666;
       color  #AA997D;
       border-color  #666666;
       background linear-gradient(to bottom,  #5e5e5e 0%,  #616161 100%);
    This is the section that I want change. I simply want to change the background-color and remove the gradient. No success. why?

    I am unable to define a background color for a specific design.   The instructions on this page seem pretty straight forward.   Have there been any changes or any idea what I might be missing?  Any advice/assistance would be greatly appreciated.

      Got it!  The instructions above had -'s and my source was using _'s.  The line below worked great.  

      #article_1045xxxxxx{background-color:#fae !important}
