Hi Joe,

You've done the most difficult part.

Open or create a page on your site where you would like your products to be displayed.

If you have also categorised your products then it's not a bad thing to create a different page for different categories.

On each page drag the Online Store widget onto your page. Select the category you wish to display if appropriate from the drop down list at the top left hand side of the widget.

Select the display style you would prefer and the number of displayed items per page.

The page will go through a short thinking time and then display the products. Everything should work and if you want to change colours or anything of the text etc this can be selected from the Ecwid control panel of the store.

Yola have a selection of tutorials on the Online Store in Group #17

Hi Joe,

If you would like to add images to your online store, take a look at this tutorial for more information: Adding images.

If you have already added images to your online store product information, and are still unable to see them, please provide us with your website URL, so we can investigate further.

Yes Joe,

You can add extra photos to the gallery which is displayed separately but associated with the product.

If you wish to have images appear with the product you can add them to the "description" area and use some HTML to set them up. In this case you upload them into your Yola File Manager rather than to Ecwid as the product images are.

The procedure for adding them to the Store Product Gallery:

  • In the "Product" dialog box, click "Gallery".

  • click "Upload images".


Single image:

  • Click "Choose file" and select your image.

  • Click "Upload Images".


  • Multiple images:

    • Click the "+" sign next to the "Choose File" button.

    • select multiple images.

    • click "Upload Images".

    • clicking "Preview Gallery" will display the images.You can also sort them by dragging and dropping them into the order you'd like them to appear.

Hello Joe

It's quite easy to achieve this – all you need to do is to go on your shop page and drag the Online Store Widget onto the page.

In the Online Store dialogue box select "All products" under "Categories to show". You can also choose how many products should be shown. This way you can display a selection of your products on the main page of your Yola Online Store. Maybe you can add a Text Widget saying something like "Please click on the categories above to view specific products": The design is in your hands!
