Upload Additional Versions of My Frame

When creating or otherwise editing Extra Pages or Menu Links in your store's "Site Content" area, you may notice that there is a drop-down menu labeled "Frame Template."

The basic functionality of this drop-down menu allows you to assign a customized frame.html template to your extra pages so that they share the same basic look and feel of your main site; while allowing you to remove certain design aspects found in the left or right banners of the store.

For example, you may have an extra page on your site in which you'd like to remove or otherwise edit the contents of the right banner (such as the "Top Sellers" and "New Releases") so that it doesn't show up on this page. In this case, you can make your copy of the default frame.html template, which has the right banner content removed altogether. Alternatively, you can make an edited frame that removes both the left and right banners as needed.

Creating Your Alternate Frame File

The basic process of creating and uploading your own alternate frame for site content pages is as follows:

  1. FTP into your store's Theme Folder. (web/assets/templates/[theme])

  2. Download a copy of the theme's respective "frame.html" file.

  3. Using your favorite HTML or text editing program, remove or edit the sections you'd like.

  4. After editing your file, save it as frame_1.html.

5. Using FTP, upload the newly created file back to your theme folder.

Using your Alternate Frame File

To use your alternate frame file, log into your Shift4Shop Online Store Manager and, using the left navigation menu:

  1. Go to Content > Site Content.

  2. Select the Extra Page or Menu Link content page that you'd like to change.

  3. Click on its Content button.

  4. Select your alternate Frame file from the drop-down.

Depending on how the file was named, it will be listed as "Style 1, style 2, etc.
(frame_1.html will be Style 1, frame_2.html will be Style 2, and so forth)
