We'll go into detail with some of these sections, but the phone number and email address fields are pretty self-explanatory, so we'll skip those.
Enabling the currency conversion feature allows your customers to display prices in the currency of their choice. Orders are still placed in your store's currency. You should only enable currency conversion if you sell to countries outside of your own.
To enable currency conversion in your store, follow the instructions below;
Your store will now display currency options for all of the countries that you have opted to ship to. To show multiple currencies, it's likely you'll need to add some countries in the Regions & Taxes section of your store's Toolbox.
You should also make sure you set up Shipping Rates for each of the countries you have enabled.
Increase your social engagement by linking through to your social media pages. When you enter the URL of your pages, an icon will appear in the header of your store for your customers to click through.
The Melbourne Ecommerce theme has support for Facebook, Google +, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Flickr, LinkedIn, and YouTube pages.
URL's are entered in the Store Header section of your Theme editor.
To add a link to your pages, open the Store Header section of your Theme editor, scroll down to the Social media links section, and enter the FULL URL of the page you want to link to.
You can get the URL of a page by viewing the page in a web browser. When you're seeing what you want your visitors to see, copy the address of the page that's in the address bar of your browser, paste it into the related field in your Theme editor, and click the Save Settings button.
Make sure you preview your store and click on the new icon in your header to make sure it's working properly!
The theme editor will resize the logo for you when you upload it, but you will get a much better result if you resize your logo before uploading it.
580px is the maximum width that your logo will be displayed in your store. 200px is the recommended maximum logo height, but we don't limit the actual height of your logo.
A tall thin logo will not look good in this theme, and you would do better getting a designer to come up with an alternative solution for you. If you have a square logo, there will be a large amount of blank space, so you're far better off creating an image that has your logo on the left with some kind of promotional banner next to it.
Pixlr is a free online image editing program, where you can edit your images in your web browser.
By default, the Melbourne theme uses the menu called "Top menu" in your store's header.
If you're switching to the Melbourne theme from another theme, and have all of your menu items in a different menu, you can select the menu that you want to use in your store's header in the Store Header section of your Theme editor. You simply select the menu you want to use and click the Save Settings button.
The Melbourne theme supports up to 4 levels of drop-down menus.
There's no mucking about with code to get your drop-down menus working. You can create them simply by following the simple steps below. One important note though... you can't create links to nothing! If you haven't created the page or collection you want to link to, you need to create them first.
Previewing your store should show your second item as a drop-down. You can do this with multiple levels, and re-arrange your menus by dragging items up, down, left, or right whilst you're in "re-order" mode.
The Melbourne theme also has a "Collections" page that shows all of the collections in your store.
To add the “Collections” page to your store, you just need to create a link to a page that has the address "/collections" to do this, follow the instructions below:
You're also able to edit the text that appears on this page. To do this, follow the instructions below:
