Hi
We have a website which is currently offline. It is hosted by a company whereby we can sell their products on our own site. We have the option to customize the site but require some expertise to guide us in the right direction.
Here are the instructions to give you an idea of what we require:

To create a new page click the \"Create New\" button on the right, the new page will then appear in the list below, you can then click edit to enter the data and html for the page.

Page ID Page Name
Edit 1130 Delete default.aspx - we created this but nothing happens.

When you create a new page, you will note that it is given a page ID number, this is used to call the page on your site.

Using the sample page that we have provided, you can test it by going to your site and call it into one of the templates, for example www.yourdomain.co.uk/s1.aspx?id=xxx (replace xxx with the page ID number for the sample page ID number above, the page should be displayed. If you typed b1 instead of s1, it would have used the blank template instead.

If you want to upload a complete html page of your own, that doesn't use our page templates, you should upload it directly by clicking the File Upload button. The location of your html page will be for example www.yourdomain.co.uk/user/xxx (replace xxx with the name of the file.

You link to your new pages as follows:

When you change any of the graphics or product boxes on the site, it allows you to enter a search string to tell the system what to display.

If you enter category=1600 it will display all products in that category.
If you enter prodid=14580 it will display the details of that product.
If you enter link=http://www.atsdistribution.co.uk the user will be taken to the external site that is entered.
If you enter link=login.aspx the user will be taken to the site's login page.

If you uploaded a page called sample.html it would be located with an absolute URL of http://www.yourdomain.co.uk/user/sample.html (used if linking from an external web page) or using the relative url of user/sample.html (used if linking from within your site)

You can link from your custom pages to our standard pages as follows:

Page list:
basket.aspx
brands.aspx
contactus.aspx
default.aspx (this is your homepage)
login.aspx
myaccount.aspx
pricelists.aspx
privacy.aspx
register.aspx
sitehelp.aspx
terms.aspx

catalog.aspx (this page is used to display products and link to external sites, so in our examples above the URL would be:
1/ catalog.aspx?category=1600
2/ catalog.aspx?prodid=14580
3/ catalog.aspx?link=http://www.atsdistribution.co.uk

maincategory.aspx (this page displays the homepage for each of the Main Categories when you click on the Main Menu bar)
The defaults are as follows:
maincategory.aspx?cat=1 (will display the homepage for Pets)
maincategory.aspx?cat=2 (will display the homepage for Electronics)
maincategory.aspx?cat=3 (will display the homepage for Fashion)
maincategory.aspx?cat=4 (will display the homepage for PC & Console)
maincategory.aspx?cat=5 (will display the homepage for Home & Garden)
maincategory.aspx?cat=6 (will display the homepage for Sport & Leisure)
maincategory.aspx?cat=7 (will display the homepage for Toys & Games)
maincategory.aspx?cat=8 (will display the homepage for Personal Care)
maincategory.aspx?cat=9 (will display the homepage for Baby Care)
maincategory.aspx?cat=10 (will display the homepage for Office & Stationery)

Uploading the images used in your pages.

To upload the images click on the File Upload button.
The images will be stored in the user directory in the root of the site, so to link your pages to them, the absolute URL would be http://www.yourdomain.co.uk/user/xxx.jpg or relative URL of user/xxx.jpg (replace xxx.jpg with the name of the image)

The attachment below displays several templates - we are wanting template b1 (on the far right)

Hope this is helpful

Kind regards

Joanne
