how to edit/add a panel?
hello,

i am trying to figure out how to add panels to my store. on the left side bar the three default panels that came with it were categories, brands and newsletter. I would like to add another categories section of course with different categories. is there an easy way to do that? i would also like to add links for social media in the side bar, anyone know how to do that?

are these set up kind of like widgets where i can choose to add them in there or do i have to code any additional ones i want?

thanks in advance

Here is a guide that can help you add your own custom panels:

Also a guide that can explain how our template system works:

And for the extra categories panel, you would have to custom code that, and link to the other categories you want it to list. We do not have a second categories panel in the software.

You can add and remove panels as you like.

You cannot create completely new custom panels from the design mode editor, you would need to upload them into your panels directory via FTP.

CSS is completely unrelated to whether you can create, add or remove panels, it defines styles for your entire site.

How do you change the width? My text is overflowing outside of the box!

Sorry, but i can't find a way to add panels in design mode? when i click on a area, it shows remove panel, but their is no option to add a panel. Is that done in the html editor only?

There is no way to add panels in design mode. You have to add them on the html template files. Just add %%Panel.The_Panel_you_want%%
