Preparation Checklist

Before you start this tweak, it's a good idea to run through our Preparation Checklist below:

  • Read through the Introduction to Maropost Commerce Cloud Document to get a better sense of how the Control Panel, Database and Front End store interact.
  • Learn our recommended Simple Workflow. This makes the implementation process as easy as possible.
  • Create a new Staging Theme for this tweak. This allows you to preview any changes before they are visible to live customers.
  • The code snippet in this tweak doc uses Bootstrap 4, you may need to alter this code depending on what version of Bootstrap your theme is using. You can find out what version your theme is using here.

The sidebar template can be found here /httpdocs/assets/themes/[THEME-NAME]/templates/cms/includes/sidebar.template.html.
