Save Design Feature

3 Jun

The Save Design feature is a really useful tool if you are going to make seasonal changes to your store for the Christmas or Summer period and want to keep a copy of your original design.  Lets go through how this feature works and how you can apply it to your own store.

Where do I find the feature ?

You can save your design within the DESIGN > THEME EDITOR section of your Freewebstore Control Panel.  This allows you to make design changes to your store including changing the colour, logo , background and all sorts of other cool things to get your store looking exactly how you want it before you save it.

How do I save a design ?

From the Theme Editor menu use the “Save Now” button to save the design.  You can also access your design library from this area, but more on that later.

You now need to give your design a name so that you can recognize it when or if you want to switch back to it.  For this example we have created a store with a Christmas theme in preparation for our store’s Christmas sale so we will call the design “Christmas Design” but you are free to call your design anything you like.  Click the “Save Design” link and your saved design is now added to your Saved Theme Library.

How do I switch my store back to a saved design ?

Visit the DESIGN > SWITCH DESIGN section of your Freewebstore Control Panel to access your library.  You can then see all versions of your saved designs with a date mark to show you when you saved it.  Simply click the “Restore Design” link from underneath the design thumbnail to restore it.   You can also use this section to switch to a new design template if you want to give your store a facelift !

Please note : The saved feature is only available for stores with an active subscription.

If you need help with this or any other subject please feel free to contact our fantastic Support Team via your Freewebstore Control Panel.

      Great 🙂 Well it would be great if customers with an account on the store could add products to a wish list and a points reward system would be great. With each product they buy, they can earn points that they can then use for a reward or product. Some online stores even have the save for later feature in the shopping cart. I think our customers may find that handy too cause then they can already secure products if they want (simply reserve them) and pay for them when they have the money. We hope mostly on the first 2 but it would be great if any of them can become a reality.
