NiftyGridZPro has a feature to ensure that you always have a grid displayed, even if Zazzle’s feed mechanism goes down. A number of such fallback grids are included with your installation and our sister site’s Nifty Promo Control Panel lets you make your own so you have full flexibility on what’s displayed (see the FAQ for more on this).
Of course, you need a way to make sure that they’re working ok and this post shows you how to make sure they are. It’s all spelled out in the FAQ but let’s run through it here.
- By default, one with a filename of backup-file2-birthday6.html is used – unless you give a different filename in your shortcode options.
- It’s easy to test that the fallback grid shows up and is as you expect. Just include this special shortcode:
mimic_zazzle_down=1. Again, simply preview it to see the fallback grid in place. Don’t forget to take it out when you’re happy with the result!
Here’s the shortcode for the grid below:

Zazzle isn't giving us what we asked for - they must be having technical issues right now. How about these instead?
The only thing to watch out for with the fallback grid is to make sure that none of the products in it on Zazzle get hidden or deleted – if they do, you’ll get broken links. You can best do this by using your own products and then you’re in control.
