Testimonials customer-side now utilises proper pagination, so doesn't load all testimonials at once - demo

Are home page Hero Promo images the way to go now (instead of home page Slider images)?

It's up to you, you can have both, but either way, just ensure your images are well optimised, ie. not huge in file size.

Just have at least "something(s)" appealing on your homepage, to draw visitors in further...

You can make use of homepage featured categories/manufactuers also.

Nothing stopping you from adding any content to /skin/reboot/custom/home/home_style_X.tpl

What about fixed Body container width (Theme) with a full screen Body background image vs. fluid Body container width (Theme), which overrides all other Outer Container settings and hence makes Body background image superfluous.
Which is preferable nowadays?

I'm using a Combo Menu Header menu type, with Header combo menu - include categories set to Mega.
In large screen mode, hovering over the Categories menu heading displays all the category images and titles in grid format. This is good.
In small screen mode the categories sidebar menu comes up when the Categories menu heading is clicked on. This is also good.
How can I make the hero promo link act like the Categories menu heading?

Are you looking to trigger/open the mobile category menu, when clicking on the hero promo button link?

Attached modified /skin/reboot/custom/promos/promo_hero.tpl will work (tested), but only on mobiles, due to how the sidebar category menu gets re-positioned. On desktops it'll use the regular hero promo link.

But if you'd prefer to display a simple category grid, like your desktop header menu, instead of the hero promo, I've added a new widget in the latest minor update just released.

Upload /skin/reboot/custom/widgets/widget_category_grid.tpl then include to your homepage style template (/skin/reboot/custom/home/home_style_X.tpl) using code...
Code:
{include file="custom/widgets/widget_category_grid.tpl" title=$lng.lbl_categories}
Demo here.
Attached Files
File Type: tpl promo_hero.tpl (4.4 KB, 0 views)

June 17th - Some Minor Updates - Changelog, but the most important file is...

/skin/reboot/customer/main/address.tpl

...which fixes the "use as billing/shipping" checkboxes in the address book popup.

Thanks to Paul for spotting the issue... Download the files here.

WEBP capability is coming to reBOOT !

I'm already using WEBP images for the demo store images.
