To proceed with creating a template, the next step is to create a website. By following the instructions in Building a Website, you will be guided through the process of creating a website, which is a crucial step in the template creation process.

Hide Grid for Specific Resolutions

Access the WebCommander editor by choosing “Edit Content Section” via the kebab menu on the layout card within the “Layout” option of the “Webdesign” menu on your dashboard.

Within the editor’s “Settings” domain, pinpoint the grid earmarked for concealment in specific resolutions.

Unfold the “Layout” accordion and opt for “Hidden” from the dropdown menu.

Select the resolutions where grid concealment is desired.

Validate your choices with a click on the “Apply” button, ushering in the desired changes.

By carefully following these steps, you’ll unlock the potential of responsive design, creating flexible and versatile user experiences.

Crafting Responsive Content

Begin your voyage by navigating to the “Layout” option within the “Webdesign” menu on your dashboard.

Invoke the kebab menu on the layout card you intend to edit. Opt for “Edit Content Section.”

Step into the WebCommander editor, where you can easily modify your content sections.

To fine-tune the responsive behaviour, opt for the “Settings” option in the editor.

Within the “Settings” domain, select the grid you wish to tailor for specific resolutions.

Unveil the “Layout” accordion and manipulate the grid border to adjust the layout width as required.

Access the layout configuration panel. Choose ‘Fluid’ for resolutions requiring flexible grids and customise as necessary.

Finalise by clicking the “Apply” button, making your grid fluid for the selected resolutions.

Crafting a Responsive Header

Embark on your journey by visiting the “Layout” option under the “Webdesign Tools” menu in your dashboard.

Engage with the kebab menu located on the layout card you wish to edit. Select either “Edit Header Section” or “Edit Footer Section” based on your modification target.

Dive into the WebCommander editor, where you can seamlessly sculpt changes within your header or footer section.

To fine-tune the responsive behaviour, opt for the “Settings” option in the editor.

Within the “Settings”, explore the “RESOLUTION” select box to access your previously defined media queries.

Choose the “Global” option for CSS rules application across the board, or select a specific media query for tailored CSS rules.

The layout editor’s toolkit also offers “SW” (Section Width) and “SH” (Section Height) options, allowing you to determine the dimensions of your header/footer. “SW” can be set to 0 for full width, and “SH” to 0 for zero height.

Adjust the width and height of your header/footer to accommodate diverse screen resolutions, achieving a harmonious responsive design.

Creating & Editing Docker

To display announcements or offers on your website, you can utilise Docker as an independent container that remains fixed in its designated position. To add Docker, you can follow these steps:

Open the ‘Settings’ tab in your live preview.

In the ‘Settings’ tab, you’ll find a ‘Section’ dropdown. Next to the ‘Section’ dropdown, you’ll see a ‘Plus’ icon. Click on that to add a new Docker section.

You can drag and drop the desired widget from the content section into the newly created section.

You have the flexibility to customise the design of the docker from the settings tab. Look for the option called ‘Dock CSS’.

Within the ‘Position’ dropdown, you can choose how the docker behaves. If you select ‘Absolute’, the docker will move along with the page. On the other hand, if you choose ‘Fixed’, the docker will stay frozen on the screen.

Additionally, you can adjust the position of the docker by modifying the ‘Left’, ‘Top’, ‘Right’, and ‘Bottom’ options.

To further customise the design, you can also modify the width and height of the widget placeholder.

If you want to go even further, you can enhance the design by adding CSS properties.

Sometimes, the Adding docker might hide your header or footer. Depending on its position, you may need to modify the CSS for the header or footer.

To unhide go to the page properties section and create a new selector specifically for the header or footer.

Once you have created the selector, you just need to add padding as a CSS property.

Once you’re satisfied with your changes, don’t forget to save them!

Editing The Content Section

To edit the content section in WebCommander, follow these steps:

Once again, access the ‘Kebab Menu’ (the three dots) and choose ‘Edit Content Section’ to start customising the content.

Head to the ‘Settings’ option. Within the layout section, you’ll find ‘Body Grid.’ Here, you can select one of the available splitting options that aligns with your vision for the content layout.

In the Content tab, you can add widgets and design elements to your content section. If you’re looking for a specific widget, you can use the search bar to find it. And if you have some favourites, you can save them using the star icon. To add a widget, simply drag it onto the live preview area.

You can also add multiple content sections using the ‘Plus’ icon. Each section can have its own set of widgets, allowing you to create a dynamic and engaging layout.

Please note that any content section marked in green within the system is not editable. This content is intended for rendering on the page. If you want to incorporate additional widgets, you should create extra content sections.

Once you’re satisfied with your changes, don’t forget to save them!

How to Add Images

If you want to add a background image to your template, you can create a folder and place your images in it.

When writing the source path in your CSS file, you must follow the image file path convention.

The image file path should be in the following format:


You can obtain the eight-digit code from the General Settings section in the WebCommander admin panel.

To add an image as a background, you need to follow these steps:

  • Place the image file in the “images” folder of your project.
  • Open the style.css or responsive.css file (depending on your needs) and write the CSS rules to set the image as the background. Here’s an example:

If you want to set a background image for a specific page section, you need to follow these steps:

  • Place the image file in the “images” folder of your project.
  • Open the style.css file and add the following CSS rules to set the background image for the desired page section:
    "webhooks": [
            "sourceUrl": "",
            "eventName": "added-to-cart",
            "renderScope": "",
            "accessType": "webhook"
    "scriptTag": [
            "sourceUrl": "",
            "renderScope": "All",
            "accessType": "scriptTag"
    "customerProfileTabs": [
            "customerProfileTabIdentifier": "myPluginTab",
            "customerProfileTabDisplayName": "My Plugin",
            "customerProfileTabSourceUrl": ""

How to Add Fonts

If you intend to incorporate embedded fonts into your template, you can begin by creating a folder and organising your font files within it. While there are no strict rules regarding the naming of files and folders, it is crucial to follow the appropriate file path convention when using the @font-face rule in your style.css file.

The file path should adhere to the following format: /template/eightDigit/folderName/fileNameWithExtension

You can obtain the eight-digit code from the General Settings section in the WebCommander admin panel.

We can add fonts to the WebCommander front-end in two different ways. The first method is to import fonts from a Content Delivery Network (CDN) such as Google Fonts. The second method is to embed the font directly into our own site.

To import a font from a CDN, we need to add an @import rule in the style.css file. Here’s an example:

  • style.css
@import url(';500;700&display=swap');

body {
  font-family: 'Roboto', sans-serif;

To embed a font in the WebCommander front-end, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Place the font files (.ttf, .eot, .woff, .svg) in the “fonts” folder of your project.
  2. Open the style.css file and add the @font-face rule. Here’s an example:
  • style.css
@font-face {
    font-family: 'Gilroy';
    src: url('../fonts/gilroymedium/Gilroy-Medium.eot');
    src: url('../fonts/gilroymedium/Gilroy-Medium.eot?#iefix') format('embedded-opentype'),
    url('../fonts/gilroymedium/Gilroy-Medium.woff2') format('woff2'),
    url('../fonts/gilroymedium/Gilroy-Medium.woff') format('woff'),
    url('../fonts/gilroymedium/Gilroy-Medium.ttf') format('truetype'),
    url('../fonts/gilroymedium/Gilroy-Medium.svg#Gilroy-Medium') format('svg');
    font-weight: 500;
    font-style: normal;

body {
  font-family: 'Gilroy';

Development With Custom JS

This folder contains a single JavaScript file. It is important to adhere to the folder and file naming conventions strictly.

To add custom scripting to the template webpage, we need to add a file named config.js in this folder. We can write JavaScript code in this file to customise the webpage behaviour as per our requirements.

Here’s an example of using custom JS:

This is a ‘Go to Top’ button. We have created this button using an HTML widget and assigned it the class ‘.goToTop’. To implement its functionality, we need to add custom JavaScript code to the ‘config.js’ file. Below is the JavaScript code.

  • JavaScript
            $('html, body').animate({
                scrollTop: $("body").offset().top
            }, 1000);
            return false;
