By pressing this button, a marker is placed where your caret was last put in the window. This marker shows where page content will go on the pages that use this template. The marker is show thus:

<-- #page_content -->

You can delete this by highlighting and you can cut and paste it elsewhere on the page. If there is no marker, there will be no content shown on the page.

 

 

By pressing this button, a marker is placed where your caret was last put in the window. This marker shows where menu 1 will go. The marker looks like this:

<-- #Menu_1 -->

You can delete this by highlighting and you can cut and paste it elsewhere on the page. If there is no marker, there will be no menu 1 shown on the page.

Menus
You have a choice of one or two menus on your page. Both will work together in synch as you navigate through the site. However, this gives you the chance to have both a vertical and horizontal menu on the same page and showing in different places. A practical application being that many sites have menus at the top or mostly on the left. This also allows you to have a horizontal menu at the bottom of the page to allow users of the site more scope in finding their way around - especially on deep (long) pages.

A second marker can be used to incorporate a text based menu to allow for easy spidering of the web site by the search engines.

  By pressing this button, a marker is placed where your caret was last put in the window. This marker shows where menu 2 will go. The marker shows on the page thus:

<-- #Menu_2 -->

As with menu marker 1, You can delete this by highlighting and you can cut and paste it elsewhere on the page. If there is no marker, there will be no menu 2 shown on the page. It is an optional marker and does not need to show but is there to allow you a second menu which need not be in the same format as the first (i.e. one can be vertical and the other horizontal).

The menu format (vertical or horizontal is configured under the menu section.

 

By pressing this button, a marker is placed where your caret (cursor) was last put in the window. This marker shows where cart content details will go on the pages that use this template. The marker is show thus:

<-- #Cart_Details -->

You can delete this by highlighting and you can cut and paste it elsewhere on the page. If there is no marker, there will be no cart contents shown on the page.

The cart contents show the number of items in the cart and the value of the items totalled in the cart. The content marker is replaced by JavaScript to allow this information to show even on static published web pages. Thus, all pages on your website can display current cart contents on them. See also 'linking to cart' and 'check out' which allow you to link directly to the current cart contents so that these can be displayed. This is dealt with in the internal page link facility (click here).

 

Custom markersCustom markers are used to add special functionality to a page for use with e-commerce in particular.

There are many makers, most are used to mark the position where e-commerce items will show. They allow you to design your own page to display products and to alter that as you wish, with any special information. You place the markers where you wish products, images etc. to appear and when the dynamic part of the e-commerce system shows your potential customers a product, it uses your page, reads where the markers are and displays the relevant information in real time.

Most markers are used on special pages, picked up and used for the dynamic e-commerce pages, however, there are two, cart contents and cart details, which are used to mark where cart contents are shown on static published pages. This information allows customers to see items in their cart and total value, despite the fact that the pages they are looking at are not dynamic.

There are some slight differences:

Within the template

Within the web pages
