One advantage of using Magento as a CMS platform is that you get to have the same amount of control over your site’s design elements as compared to other popular web platforms, along with the advantage of having integrated e-commerce options which allow you to easily manage your online storefront with an easy to use interface that requires no prior technical knowledge. The M-Esim template is one such template which is specially designed for online camera stores and allows you to showcase all your featured products and enable online sales.
The template comes in a default black color scheme which suits this particular niche of products. You can include a featured image in the homepage for your latest collection, or create a custom image showcasing your latest deals and promotions. The extension ready footer also has an opt-in box for subscription management along with internal quicklinks. You can also upload a custom logo and also have a default greeting message for your visitors.
The template is built on the latest tableless HTML design scheme and corresponds to valid XHTML and CSS 3 norms. It’s cross browser compatible and supports Magento community edition version 1.4.x and higher.
The success of a site depends on how easily your users can internally navigate within your site to find the desired product. The template comes with a primary multi-level header menu which can be used for your product categories. A top header has account management links along with a prominent search box by which users can do a quick keyword search. You can also include quicklinks in the footer space.
Within internal pages, you can include custom product groupings such as Price Range, Lens, color etc which allows users to quickly find a matching product. For category and search result pages, users can also choose between list and grid options, can sort entries and select the number of products to be displayed in a single page. They can also create a custom wishlist and can also compare products, write reviews and submit product tags.
Internal product pages come with support for multiple product images, along with a magnification scroller that allows users to move the scroller to see a magnified version of the featured image. A default table format allows you to clearly specify all your technical parameters for a given product.
The M-Esim template is priced at $5.00. Installation by the MageFox support team would cost you an additional $40.00.
