Store Morph Technology (SMT™) is a completely new store design system created exclusively for MIVA Merchant 5. It provides complete control over the look and feel of your online store.
With SMT, you control the layout and content of each store page. Move buttons, change labels, drop in custom components, and more. Every page of your MIVA Merchant 5 online store can be customized to suit your business needs.
Use SMT to control what each page displays, and how it is formatted. For example, put a search box on your navigation bar. Then customize how that search box looks, what the search button says, and where the search results are displayed.
You can completely change the layout of any of your online store pages. Move the category tree to the right side of the page--or just remove it altogether. The power is in your hands with Store Morph Technology, making your MIVA Merchant 5 online store truly customized for your business.
There is nothing additional to install or purchase. SMT is integrated throughout the MIVA Merchant 5 administration interface. When you begin designing your store, SMT controls will be easily accessible.
Detailed instructions are available at the click of a button, providing helpful insight and guidelines into harnessing the power of Store Morph Technology.
Using HTML and some simple MIVA template tags, it's easy to customize virtually anything in your store such as the product display, basket contents navigation bar, search results and much more! You will need to know a little HTML for beforehand, but a new version tracking system makes it easy to revert back and forth to any changes you've made to each page, allowing you to freely explore without worry.
Here's an example of two possible product displays that can be quickly and easily made by modifying the Product Display template:
Put the product image on the right or left, the price on the bottom, add graphics, move things around, it's all up to you!
MIVA Merchant 5 now keeps track of changes to the templates with the new version system. Make as many changes as you'd like and recall past updates at any time. You can go back and forth from current and past changes as much as you need. You can even make notes to use in place of the day/time stamp. The following image shows how you can recall various changes through the new version system.
