HOME PAGE LAYOUT

Content


Due to the options of this module and its intuitive interface the tab "HOME PAGE LAYOUT" allows the administrator to easily manage the website banners as well as the number of boutiques on the page. You can create a unique layout of the Home Page. In its turn, each Home Page can be divided into two main sections: Featured Today and Ending Soon. These also is one more section called Coming Soon, that has the same layout irrespective of the Home Page.

Here we will try to show you how to edit the layout of each Home Page and its sections. For your convenience we present the screenshots of both admin panel and website front-end for you to better understand the correlation between them.

Let's find out how to edit the layout of the main section - Featured Today. Each section is divided into three blocks as shown below:


Description.png Detailed description:
  1. TOP BLOCK: The boutiques and banners from this block are always located in the top of the page. The layout will totally correspond to the structure set in this tab (the number or rows and boutiques should be set here in this tab).
  2. MIDDLE BLOCK: This block, unlike the other ones, is characterized by cyclic display on the page. You have to set the layout (the number of rows with boutiques or banners) that will be cyclically displayed in the middle of the page. Note, this option works only if there are enough active boutiques belonging to a particular Home Page.
  3. BOTTOM BLOCK: This block is very similar to the "TOP BLOCK". But the boutiques and banners from this block are always located in the bottom of the page. The layout will totally correspond to the structure set in this tab (the number or rows and boutiques should be set here in this tab).

You should keep in mind the priority of page layout setting. The boutiques should be set in such an order:

  • First, the layout of the TOP BLOCK
  • Then the layout of the MIDDLE BLOCK
  • Finally, the layout of the BOTTOM BLOCK
