How to create header and footer for a Premium shop
Comboutique.com enables you to modify the entire look and feel of your PREMIUM SHOP
It is highly recommended to have first-hand experience in creating HTML pages in order to be able to customize your PREMIUM SHOP. You also need to know HTML tags and not only website editors (such as Dreamweaver or Frontpage …). Shouldn't you have those HTML skills, we recommend that you don't try customizing your PREMIUM SHOP, you would lose valuable time and wouldn't obtain your expected results.
Comboutique.com also offers customisation services. For less than a hundred euros, our team of professional web designers will customize your PREMIUM SHOP in a few days. To learn more, send us an email to : business [at] comboutique . com
Define your own templates :
This option of the "Customisation" menu allows you to insert HTML header and footer that retain the look and feel of your website. Your PREMIUM SHOP will look like your website, your clients won't notice they're visiting a different website !
How does it work concretely? Each page of your website contains code lines broken down in three parts. The first and third parts (header and footer) don't change, they determine the look of your website (title, colour chart, navigation menu …). The second part will have different contents depending on the page.
Comboutique.com is a dynamic website (actually acting as a software package), the web pages don't actually exist, they're created "on demand", following the actions you wish to launch. They are created with a header, a dynamic zone displaying the content you wish, and a footer. You can call specific header and footer instead of the standard comboutique ones.
To create specific header and footer, there is a couple of simple guidelines to follow :
- All the dynamic content (second part of the HTML page) is inserted into a 760 pixels width TABLE field, horizontally centered. That is the only limitation. In order to have your PREMIUM SHOP displaying correctly on all screens, we recommend that you keep that 760 pixels width for your header and footer. (For more experienced users, you can use a "100%" width since the main part of the page is always horizontally centered 760 pixels width).
- Your HTML page must work properly and conform to the basic rules of HTML programming. The header must contain the <html> and <head> tags, as well as the <body> tag. At the least :
and your footer must contain all required tags to close a HTML page, at least :
- Only the HTML code lines defining your header and footer will be hosted on the comboutique server : you must edit all the links contained in your lines of codes (images, other multimedia elements, links), so that the links will point to your own server or any server other than comboutique. For instance, if the URL of your index.html page used for creating your header or footer is :
and the images contained in your index.html page are defined as follows :
then, the IMG tag will need to be modified as follows :
Nota Bene ; in order to keep a consistent indexation of your PREMIUM SHOP in our search engine and the main search engines, Meta tags are automatically added to your templates, you don't need creating them. Should you need editing them manually, you can do it from the "Shop Info" section.
Personalize your fonts and colours :
If you need modifying the dynamic part of your HTML page, you can do so from that item of the "Customisation" menu. You can choose the colour and font for the elements of your page to match your own website.
Choose from a set of templates :
You'll find in that section, a set of predefined skins that will allow you to customize you shop with a single click ! If you are in a creative mood, don't hesitate to send us your new skins, the best ones will surely get rewarded.
