12 Oct 2019: New tool released - the Nifty Product Stager. It starts off with product images chosen here and lets you add frames, text and other images to make perfect images for Pinterest pins and other social media sharing.
You also get a link to use with the image when pinning / sharing that takes the visitor to a product grid page they can choose and buy from. It uses the same products pulled when you set up the stager in the first place.
more Nifty tools, tutorials and FAQs are on the main NiftyToolZ website
I hope you enjoy its benefits, whatever way makes sense for you to use it.
NB The sharing buttons you see on this page are for sharing this Society6 Nifty Promo Control Panel page.

Sometimes Society6 has issues with images for some types of product - this usually shows up here when "pulling" from a store rather than with a general search - but not always. You can check by clicking one of the missing images to see if you get nothing but a spinner on the product's page. If it's ok, it'll be ok in the tools because they request that larger image from Society6.
If you do get a never-ending spinner, and it's your store, get in touch with S6 support. Let them know and they'll put your store in for re-indexing. It might take a couple of days but that usually fixes things.
Every time there's a change to this Nifty tool we'll announce it here. Whenever there's a new announcement, the previous one you saw will be shifted into the history.
If we need to, we'll update the current announcement instead of making a new one.
If you've hidden the news until there's a new announcement, you won't see updates. If you want to check for updates to the existing announcement from time to time, start the tool with this ?shownews=yes (and nothing else) immediately after the .html up in the address bar.
If you don't use the tool for a while, you may miss some announcements entirely and they won't be in your history - but that's ok, just visit the Facebook group linked below if there's a new feature you need help with :)
The buttons give you full control over what's displayed in this panel or whether the panel itself is displayed at all, with an option to keep it hidden until there's a new announcement.
One final point: we'll also show you here if there's a general announcement about Nifty that we think you need to see - but it won't be added to your history for this tool.
