w3shop Homepage

Each w3shop theme comes with a homepage.
There are some special rules for w3shop homepages.

1) Homepage cache

The w3shop homepage page type has a cache to speed up the load time, especially for the Zone Red theme which has a template widget.
This means it will take around 1 hour for your changes to show after they've been saved.

2) You don't need a url slug for the homepage

The homepage or 1st page sorted is the only page that can have a blank url slug.
This means people can go to http://www.yourdomain.com instead of http://www.yourdomain.com/home

3) You don't have to use the homepage page type

You can use any page type for your actual homepage, provided.

  • The new page has a sort order of 1
  • It doesn't belong to any dropdown menu
  • You either
    • Remove the url slug, or
    • Include the page in your menu at the 1st position.

For example http://www.flyerzone.co.uk/ uses the Cumulus theme Homepage B instead of the default Homepage page type to show a different option.

4) Your logo or header image will redirect to the homepage
