Step 4

You will also note that there is a "Display Category Title" checkbox above the Header.  This allows you to 'display' the category title on the category pages or to hide it. 

In most cases you will want the category title to show, but in some instances it makes more sense to remove it.  For example anything that you put in the header will show ABOVE the category title.  This is fine if you want to make a general announcement, but sometimes it is important that the category title comes before whatever HTML you would like to add to the header.  In this case you would need to de-select the checkbox and make the category title part of the HTML code you are inserting into the header.

If you were to click the "Add" button in the lower right hand corner of the screen at this point using the settings shown above (do not click "Add" at this point- this is for illustration purposes only) your storefront would look like the following:


(Note: all colors on your store will be set to the default Miva Merchant colors including the text.  Learn how to change the colors - click here.)

As you can see the "Header" text appears above the "Category Title".  You can avoid this (if you wish) by simply including text for the category title in the HTML you insert into the header.  If you were to de-select the "Display Category Title" checkbox and to insert the following HTML

<FONT FACE = "Arial, Helvetica" SIZE = "H1"
COLOR = "RED"><B>Category 1</B></FONT>
<P>
<B>You can enter HTML code here.</B>

into the "Header" field this would be the result:


(Notice that we have changed the color of the category title to red using COLOR="RED" in the HTML code.)

If you are using an image instead of text for the category names (we will show you how in a moment), you could insert the code referencing that image in place of text.  To learn more about using HTML (tables, image referencing, etc...) in headers & footers click here.
