Setup Your eStore Homepage

By changing the layout of the home page of your e-Store, you can tailor the way your user will interact with your site.  For example, you can add a product rotator that will rotate a variety of predefined product.  You can also add a search box, mailing list signup box, and a number of other components.  To change the layout of your e-Store, please do the following:

1. Press the "Design" tab
2. Select "Edit Page"
3. Navigate to the page you wish to modify

Note: Checkout and additional pages can be modified using the drop-down menu in the upper-right corner.

4. Drag a widget on the left and drop it into an available grid on your website, as shown below.  The grid will highlight orange to let you know where it will be inserted.
