How do I Change the Way my Store Looks?

  Click to return to Tutorial Table of Contents  

Need to change the appearance of your store or how the shopping cart behaves?  Your site has controls that you can use to give your site very different appearances and behaviors.   Not all options are suitable for everyone -- TIAS.com merchants range from the small 'mom-and-pop' stores to multi-million dollar companies.  The choices that would be right for a company with a high-volume warehouse are very likely inappropriate to someone who is just starting a business.  The tools are there if you need them -- the choice of what you use is up to you!.

Menu Simplification!

We are continuing to move the options that affect the appearance and customized performance of your website from the left side menu into the new 'Site Customization' section. The options are located on the tab with the name of the page where they appear. A list of the changes:

  1. The option to maintain store news is now on the 'Main Page' tab of the site customization options.
  2. The option to maintain the opening paragraph is now on the 'Main Page' tab of the site customization options.
