Ecwid is a perfect shopping cart for Bluevoda Website Builder. To add Ecwid to BlueVoda website, please follow the steps below.
How to add Ecwid to BlueVoda website
- Create a page in the website back-end and save it as shop (shop.html or shop.php or whatever your chosen extension is).
- On this page you need the site header.
- Underneath the header insert a table of 2 columns by 1 row. The table needs to be quite wide (approximately 1024 pixels, but you can experiment). Adjust the cells so you have a small one on the left and a much longer one on the right. Format this table to suit your site colours.
- Log into Ecwid Control Panel and go to Dashboard, where you get the widget integration codes.
- Right click the left cell to get to the cell HTML source. Paste the Shopping bag code and immediately underneath the Shopping bag paste in the code for the Categories widget.
- Right click the right cell, again you want to see the cell HTML code. Paste in the Product Browser code.
- Now for the footer links. Type them in the right cell.
- Publish the page and see the result.
Note: By using the table to contain the Ecwid code you no longer have worry about the page lengths (typical limitation of using WYSWYG builder). The table will expand and contract according the content being displayed in it.
