I'm looking for an excellent template for an online store. As much as I don't care for side menus, I think for an online store, a side menu would probably be best.

Also, should my online store be located at http: //onlinestore.youcanneverbetoosmart.com or http: //youcanneverbetoosmart.com/onlinestore

If I do the second option, then I'll have to use the same template as my main site and not the preferred way. I prefer the subdomain option! What do you think?

Personally I think side menus look better on online stores. You could always use an external store service and provide a link back to your yolasite.

I don't want a store service, I want EVERYTHING to be my own doing.

Heya Donald, it all depends on what kind a store you want built. If you want to have a pre designed Yola template I would definitely go with a side vertical menu. I would say it would be best to create the site with the subdomain instead of adding on to your previously made site, mainly for organization.

yea, that's what I was thinking, but specifically, what template? You have an online store don't you? What template do you or others on yola use for their online stores? Maybe you can provide me with links to people's stores and let me pick which one I like! I just had the subdomain "onlinestore" linked to yola, so I'm ready to get started.

I'm not using a Yola template for my store. All of it is custom coded in htm files. Sorry :'(

But if I had to suggest one, I would choose "No Frills" so that way you can edit every aspect of what the customer sees.

How much do you know in html? If you don't know to much (and thats ok too) it may be difficult on creating a webpage. If you want, later today when I get back from work, we could go over some fundamentals to build off of and get your site going.

I know quite a bit. I know many different tags and how to use them. A lot of my sitebuilding is done in the html. However, there's also a lot of stuff I don't know. Such as creating a template!

Hi Donald

Here's 3 of my site set up differently

http://www.andijos.com/ has menu in upper left corner with products on one side and coupons on other side.

http://www.nitelong.com/ has top menu then products, then coupons, with a little article at bottom of page

http://www.shoppealots.com/ Side menu on left, products on right, coupon under that.

Those are done threw Yola Pro

These you can check out and are done with html coding

http://www.andijosworld.com/, http://www.godscountrystore.info/, http://www.godsgiftstore.info/, http://www.godsgr8outdoors.info/, http://www.loydsworld.com/,
