Store Customization

On our themes, Ecwid store is designed to match the rest of the theme design. Therefore, there won’t be applied any of design settings done in Ecwid administration. However, it does not apply to layout settings.

Stylesheet .less files can be found at “your-theme/design/css/ecwid“. General styles of Ecwid store are named without suffix “-custom”, e.g. ecwid-style.less. Another files of themes, that have also own customization of general files, are suffixed with “-custom”, e.g. ecwid-style-custom.less.
Each file can be found in the very same directory.
