One of EKM’s strongest features is the fact that you have 100% control over the design and layout of your online shop. For example, if you wanted your site to look more like the large eCommerce sites such as Amazon, Play.com, you can. In fact, EKM is one of the most flexible eCommerce solutions on the market today.
Your store can have advanced functionality such as Customer Reviews, Email to a Friend and even a Basket showing users what’s in their cart as they browse your store.
1. To create your design you need to go into the Design section of your shop.
2. Once there locate and click on the Edit icon underneath your current theme preview and select the option Edit In Custom Mode from the drop-down list.
You will then be taken to the plain text editor screen along with the code for your currently selected theme.
3. If you know HTML or are using a 3rd party design program you can use the plain text editor instead.
This is only an example, but it shows you how easy it is (if you know HTML) to design your own layouts.
You will notice that where the View Cart link is we have used [ekm:viewcart] instead of a traditional <A HREF=> style link. This is an [ekm:tag] and this allows you to insert into your own HTML design elements of your online shop.
For example if you wanted to display the title of the current page you would put the tag [ekm:pagetitle]. [more]You can view a complete list of ekmTags here.[/more]
The custom design and layout options mean you have unlimited control over your store. This means that you can make your shop completely unique to any other website.
