If your shopping cart was converted from AmeriCart or VirtualCart to AmeriCommerce, you may notice content pages are blank, even after adding content to them:
This is likely happening because the default theme for conversions (SimpleCart) does not contain the HTML/Markup code that displays the content (since AmeriCart and Virtual Cart cart didn't have content pages). Adding the code is easy, however, and this article will guide you through that process.
Step 1: Adding the Code
First, login to your AmeriCommerce dashboard and navigate to Themes > Edit Theme > Pages > Content Page (Base) > HTML Editor. You should see the following code:
<ac:pagelayout id="CMSPage"> <ac:widgetarea id="Top"> </ac:widgetarea> <ac:widgetarea id="Bottom"> </ac:widgetarea> </ac:pagelayout>
Replace it with the following code by copying and pasting:
<ac:pagelayout id="CMSPage"> <ac:widgetarea id="Top"> </ac:widgetarea> $$TOPPAGESPECIFICSNAPINAREA$$ $$EXTERNALCONTENT$$ $$CONTENT$$ $$BOTTOMPAGESPECIFICSNAPINAREA$$ <ac:widgetarea id="Bottom"> </ac:widgetarea> </ac:pagelayout>
Save, then refresh the content page and the content you added in Content > Pages should now be visible!
