Each page is special. Some do special things; they need to be there for your w3shop to work.

When you create a new page, you choose a Page Type, we’ll install any plug-ins or widgets that you need to work with that page type.

This article outlines the page types available to add to your w3shop. It explains which are mandatory, what they contain and how they can be used.

Choosing a w3shop Theme

A w3shop Theme is  a ‘framework’ or layout to start from. Each theme comes with some basic page layouts which are a ‘starting point’ rather than a blank canvas. Whichever you pick, you can replace text and images with your own, as well as change colours and fonts.

Certain complex pages are the same on all themes, like Design Search pages, product filters, the basket and checkout pages.

We have provided 5 themes: Delicious Metro, Minimal Regular, and Zone Red, Zone Clean and Cumulus.

We strongly recommend using Cumulus, our only responsive theme.
Cumulus is the most flexible theme, with the greatest number of page layout options, and it is responsive on mobile and tablet devices.

You can see an active demo of Cumulus on http://lish.io
Check out the pages underneath the About Us menu to view the different default page layouts available.
