1. Prologue This document explains how to design and customize your VevoCart, step-by-step. This book describes the parts you can edit/add/delete to create your own unique website. The software uses CSS (cascading style sheet) to organize the style. We are confident that VevoCart will help you build great e-commerce stores!

2. Browser Tools To design web pages, it is necessary to understand interactions between CSS classes in the system. We highly recommend IE Developer Toolbar for Internet Explorer or Firebug Add-on for FireFox. For IE 6 and IE 7, you can download the IE Developer Toolbar in IE 7 from: http://www.microsoft.com/downloadS/details.aspx?familyid=E59C3964-672D-4511BB3E-2D5E1DB91038&displaylang=en. Firebug Add-on for FireFox can be downloaded from: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1843.

3. VevoCart Design Layout

In the default layout, each page in the store front has 5 sections. The content in the middle (item 3.3 in the figure) can be edited from files with extension “.aspx”, e.g. Default.aspx.
