All Apps use
options in the
App Designer
. See Customizing Apps for details on the standard
options for all Apps in the
App Designer.
You can customize Filmstrip using the following additional options in the App Designer:
  • Content fit
    . Choose
    to crop the content to fill the card or
    Aspect Ratio
    to display an entire image in the card, whether it fills up the entire card or not.
  • Tile Size
    . Enter the size of the tiles in pixels.
  • Show Notifications
    . Choose whether to display a notification for new content as it streams into the Filmstrip App.
  • Require rights
    . Enable this option to display only content with a rights request status of "Granted."
  • Hide social branding when rights granted
    Switch this on to remove the logo for the originating social media network (Twitter or Instagram) when rights are granted for a piece of content.
  • Call-to-action button
    You can use the call-to-action button with a product catalog to direct users to a product or to your site for further action.
    • Call-to-action button
      Switch the toggle to on to display the call-to-action button.
    • Require rights to display products
      Switch the toggle to on to require that the content owner has granted rights for the content before a call-to-action button appears for the content.
      The content displays even if rights are not granted for the content, but the call-to-action button will not display with the content unless rights for the content are granted.
    • Show call-to-action in tile
      . Choose whether to display the call-to-action button on a Filmstrip tile instead of displaying the call-to-action button only when the site visitor clicks on a card and opens the content in a larger window.
    • Call-to-action indication text
      The text to display to prompt the user to click on the card to open the call-to-action modal.
    • Call-to-action header text
      The words to display in the header above the call-to-action button in the content modal. Default text is, "Shop these products:".
    • Call-to-action button text
      The words to display in the call-to-action button in the content modal. Default text is, "Buy Now:".
    • Product display options
      Choose whether you want to display the
      and the
      Product name
      with the call-to-action button.
      Both the Photo and Product name buttons highlight blue when they are enabled.
    • Product URL referral tracking
      Switch the toggle to on to track referrals from this App to the associated product page.
    • Referral tracking key-value pairs
      Add parameters to further specify the referral tracking from your App content to the associated product page.
  • Embed App in multiple pages
    • Filter UGC by Product ID
      . Select this option to create one App for multiple product pages. Filter product-specific UGC to the App for each product page. You can select one or more folders to associate specific collections to the App.
    • Select product folders
      . Select the top-level product folders to use to filter UGC. Use CTRL/Command + click to select more than one folder. Livefyre uses the folder to determine which products in that folder to display in the App on various pages.
    • Show related content
      . Toggle this to display content published to the App, but tagged with a different product ID. After the product-specific content for the App displays, Livefyre displays content for other products and content not associated with a product. Livefyre prioritizes the content with the same product ID first, then content published to the App with other product IDs, then content published to the App with no product IDs.
