  6. Video preview enabled – Only one video preview per item – Image and video preview can be mixed inside the same category, as in the preview “Mixed” category.

  8. Dynamic dropdown menus: each item can have a different set of dropdown options, with different dropdown titles and options. Unlimited number of options per dropdown (practically limited to the application dimensions and layout) – You can either have one, two or no dropdowns at all, for each item. Error message will show if an option has not been chosen when adding to cart (message xml driven).
  9. HTML formated description text for each item – Mousewheel enabled scrollbar will appear when text is longer that the viewing area.
  10. XML file path set-up with Flashvars, which means you can change the xml file path in the HTML document, no need to get into flash ever!
