(STENCIL-2530)\n\n* Store owners can now change the size of the swatch displayed on product details pages, using Theme&#160;Editor's new `Products` > `Product Swatch Image Sizes` option. (STENCIL-2540)\n\n* Store owners can now toggle on/off the display of the site footer's Shop by Brand column, using Theme&#160;Editor's `Footer` > `Show brands in footer` option. By default, the Shop by Brand column is displayed. (MERC-1156, STENCIL-2938)\n\n* Store owners can now display sale badges on product cards, using Theme Editor's new `Products` > \n`Product Sale Badges` > `Display Product Sale Badges` options. You can select from sale badges in three formats: top-left horizontal, top-left diagonal, or top-left burst. (STENCIL-2640)\n\n* For products with options, store owners can now display the lowest-price option as a teaser price. To enable this option, select Theme Editor's > `Purchase Options` > `Add \"As low as\" text` option. The phrase \"As&#160;low&#160;as&#160;$x\" will then appear on the store's home page and category pages, quoting pricing for the product's lowest-price option. (MERC-1165, STENCIL-2960)\n\n* Store owners (for example, wholesalers) can now restrict access to price information and the cart. You do so by selecting Theme Editor's new `Purchase Options` > `Restrict Purchase to Login` option. Customers will then be required to log in to a store account before they can view product prices, and before they can add items to (or otherwise access) their cart. Visitors who are not logged in will see a `Log in for pricing` placeholder instead of prices, and will not be shown the `Add to Cart` or other cart-related buttons. (STENCIL-2578)\n\n\n### <span id=\"Swat\"> Bug Fixes </span>\n\n<span class=\"wideld\" id=\"153\">The Cornerstone theme's 1.5.3 release provides the following corrections:</span>\n\n* Added Theme Editor settings that enable store administrators to customize colors in Optimized Checkout discount banners. (CHECKOUT-1459)\n\n* Fixed a bug that prevented the `Write a Review` link from appearing on product pages in mobile viewports. (STENCIL-2462)\n\n* Expanded the `Write a Review` input field, from one text line up to five lines. (STENCIL-2486)\n\n* Fixed a bug that prevented `Write a Review` email links from automatically opening the review form over the target product page. (STENCIL-3009)\n\n* Corrected swatches on product pages so that they zoom up when hovered over. (STENCIL-2448)\n\n* Fixed a bug that prevented file upload buttons from properly displaying in Windows browsers. (STENCIL-2439)\n\n* Fixed a bug that incorrectly displayed a message reading: `Your search...did not match any products or information`, even when the storefront had returned visible search suggestions related to the search key. (STENCIL-2457)\n\n* Fixed a search-results bug that improperly displayed non-breaking spaces as the `&nbsp;` HTML entity. (STENCIL-2415)\n\n* Fixed a z-index bug that caused product sale badges to appear in front of overlapping megamenus. (STENCIL-3084)\n\n* On the product details page, the Videos section now auto-expands if the product has at least one video. (STENCIL-2555)\n\n* Fixed a bug in carousel text that improperly displayed special characters (including ampersands, quotation marks, and apostrophes) as HTML entities. (STENCIL-2494)\n\n* Removed a misleading Theme Editor option to \"Disable\" the number of products displayed per category page. This option had no effect; the most-generous available pagination has always been 20 products per page. (STENCIL-2629)\n\n* Removed a misleading \"none\" option from product pick lists that (in fact) require a selection. This option had no effect. (STENCIL-2493)\n\n* Removed an unused variable that, on Firefox browsers, prevented the quick-search modal from properly collapsing back into the top navigation menu when closed. (STENCIL-2445)\n\n* Updated the BigCommerce logo sprite (`bc_logo_sprite.png`) to match current branding.

To enable this display, select Theme Editor's `Footer` > `GeoTrust SSL` > `Show Seal` check box. (STENCIL-2598)\n\n* Corrected a bug that caused the carousel's top and bottom to be cut off on viewports wider than 1261px. If&#160;your store pages show this cropping, select Theme Editor's `Carousel` > `Allows image to scale on large screens` check box. (STENCIL-2455)\n\n* Corrected a bug that caused a store's mobile menu to display a store-account `Sign Up` link even when the BigCommerce control panel's `Store Settings` > `Display` > `Enable Account Creation` option was deselected.
