Troubleshooting the css menus
I have added the code but the menus are not appearing.
You will need a minimum store version of 5.9. You can check your version
number in your control panel, and it should display on all pages. Also make
sure you have uploaded all the files from the updater to the server. If you are
using two vsadmin folders for security / ssl reasons, both will need updating.
I get an error like "Data source name not found and no default driver
specified" or the content of the page doesn't appear.
It's important that the 4 main ASP or PHP lines come somewhere before the
incmenu include line. You can move the 4 ASP / PHP include lines further up
the code, just after the opening <body> tag for example.
The menu appears but with no design showing.
The css classes above should be added to your main css file, not the one in
the vsadmin folder. Make sure the css file has been uploaded to the server
and that the page has a line like this that calls that css file
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css" />
Content Management System (CMS)
The content management system built in to Ecommerce Template shopping
cart software allows you to dynamically add content to your site through the
online control panel. You can choose to add the content to existing pages, this
might be in the form of news sections or special offers for example or you can
set up a whole page content in a dynamic way - this will prove useful if you
want to add articles about your products and services or want to control your
home page content through the admin for example. The content management
system has an optional built-in HTML editor with preview which makes
formatting the content a breeze.
Adding dynamic content to existing pages
You will probably want to enable the HTML editor for the content regions as it
makes formatting so much simpler. It provides a wysiwyg interface so adding
tables, new paragraphs, colors etc can be made with a click or two. It also
allows you to preview your work before submitting.
