Digital Mall - Individual Member Catalog Customization

When Digital Mall is set to enable individual member catalogs, each member may select from themes, button sets, and layout options, which may be combined in various ways. Individual member catalogs must first be enabled from within the mall administrator panel Store Configuration > Shop Parameters menu. When member catalogs are enabled, members have catalog Layout options and each member can modify his/her categories and products. Each member's categories and products appear only in his/her catalog and do not appear in the main mall catalog.

Predesigned Themes

A selection of predesigned themes is available for download from this site and new themes are relatively easy to create. Click here to review theme and button basics. Themes may include a complete set of page templates, page images, buttons, and a config file. Themes may also only include buttons or only page templates. Each theme must include a config file. All of the themes within the themes directory are available to all members. Each member may individually select a theme and set layout parameters for his/her catalog.

A theme with page templates, graphics, button images, and layout in the config file will override almost all of the individual Layout menu options. A complete theme such as this enables members to design a catalog and begin selling products within minutes.

Include Member Content In Page Templates

The following tags may be inserted into the page templates to include content from each member shop.

Comment Tag

Inserts Member Content

<!-- AShopname -->

Shop Name

<!-- AShopmemberheader -->

Header content entered by each member.

<!-- AShopmemberfooter -->

Footer content entered by each member.

HTML Content In Member Shop Page Header and Footer

Each member may upload and save text and/or HTML code, which will be included in page templates where the member content tags are located. By creating a set of root page templates that only include member content tags and no other design elements, each member shop can use a custom page design.

Set Up Root Page Templates To Only Use Member Content Tags

Create page templates as needed for catalogue.html, cart.html, thankyou.html, delivery.html, and affiliate/template.html. Here is the HTML source code.

<html>
<head>
<title><!-- AShopname --></title>
</head><body>
<!-- AShopmemberheader -->
<!-- AShopstart -->
<!-- AShopend -->
<!-- AShopmemberfooter -->
</body>
</html>

When a member selects "none" from Themes, the default page templates are used. At this point, only the catalog content appears in the member's catalog.

Catalog Content

The catalog colors, borders, and fonts may be set for each member shop individually when using the root page templates in this way. The root button images are used by default. An alternate set of buttons may be selected from the Themes selector. Themes that only contain buttons use the default page templates and do not override individual Layout options.

Select Theme

Theme Buttons

Member may then add HTML content and link to images and other includes on remote sites. If FTP access is provided, links may be relative. If FTP access is not provided, links must be absolute.
