We provide several options for the customisation of the BidJS functionality.
All options are defined within the BidJS configuration you added in the installation process.
Custom Scroll Position on navigation
Some of our customers prefer the page to scroll to a certain position as the user navigates.
By default, BidJS will scroll to the top of the BidJS container on navigation between the different BidJS pages.
Should you wish to adjust this, you can pass in the ID of any element on your site, which you wish the page to scroll to.
E.g. if your navigation has an ID of
#main-navigation and you wish to scroll to this, the following configuration may be applied
Image Display Options
It's possible to customise how imagery is displayed on your BidJS installation.
You are able to change how images are cropped / resized
fill- The image fills the space, and crops any part of the image which won't fit in this space
fit- The image fills the space as much as possible without any cropping. This will mean images could appear inconsistently sized when next to each other
pad- (Default) Similar to
fit, the image fills the space as much as possible. However, any empty space is "padded" with colour, to ensure all images are sized consistently.
scale- Stretches / squashes the image to fit
Note that with
pad you are also able to define the
padColor, as below:
Unsupported Browser Message
By default, we display the following message to unsupported browsers
Your browser is not supported. Please use a browser such as Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge to ensure full functionality
Should you wish, you can adjust this by adding the following
Dynamic Page Title & Meta Description
BidJS can update the page title and meta descriptions dynamically, if you allow it.
This is recommended, and may result in your items being ranked higher with Google Search results.
Google Analytics Tracking
If you have Google Analytics on your site, you can plug this in, to pass more information on BidJS usage to your analytics account.
If you've initialised Google Analytics with a custom namespace, you can also pass this in
Video-Centric Webcast View
Some webcast auctioneers use the video as their primary way of displaying the listings.
In this case, it can be useful to enable this option, to prioritise the webcast video over the listing imagery.
Here is an example of this view
