The ShopSite Boot Two template files were created to make it easy for designers to create the main look for the page (ie. header, navigation menus and footer), while having all the innerds already coded and styled for them to utilize most ShopSite features as well as Twitter Bootstrap. These template files make it so that designers can create custom templates that will automatically be updated with the majority of new ShopSite features when there is a new release.
To modify any of these template files you would go to Merchandising > Custom Templates, and click on the section the template file is in (i.e. "Product Templates" or the product template files or "Include Files" for include or publish files). Then click on "Copy ShopSite Template." Make a copy of the ShopSite template you want to edit. Save changes. Then make a copy of your copy and rename it the exact same name as the original. (You can then delete your original copy with a different name). Your copy will override the original template file. If you ever want to revert back to the original template file you can simply delete (or rename) your copied file and regenerate your site.
Step 1: Select Any Theme Using Boot Two Templates Start by going to Preferences > Themes, and select any theme that is already using the Boot Two templates. A list of themes using these templates are found at the bottom of this page.
Step 2: Change Color 5 To #FFFFFF. It is important that you go to Preferences > Layout Settings, and change the Store Color 5 to #FFFFFF (or something that is not #0000??) so that the files in step 3 are used.
Step 3: Set Your Custom Theme Settings. Go to Merchandising > Custom Templates > Includes > Copy ShopSite Include, and make a copy of the Bootstrap-Two-CustomTheme.sst include file. Then make a copy of your copy and rename it the exact same name as the original. This will override the original. Now you can follow the instructions within this include file to customize the Boot Two template files.
Step 4: Select Your Header And Footer Layouts. There are many header and footer layouts already built into these themes. You can select a basic layout, then add your own CSS styles to the header elements to get the look you want.
