Creating a holding page within SellerDeck

If the site is undergoing maintenance or you are away for a period, you may wish to create a 'holding page' giving people information on what is happening.

Here is how you can create such a page within SellerDeck ecommerce software: -
  1. Open the software,
  2. Switch to the 'Design' tab
  3. Click on 'Home' in the content tree
  4. Then click the 'Page Details - Home' tab at the bottom of the screen and go to the 'Layout' group.
  5. Change the brochure page layout and create your own which can be done by selecting <New> at the very bottom of the dropdown list. Call it holding page.
  6. Switch to the 'Layout Code View' and embed the following code, make sure you are still on 'Home' in design view when you do this

    HTML Code:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
       <title><actinic:variable name="PageTitle" /></title>
       <actinic:variable name="BaseHref" />
     <actinic:variable name="MetaTags" />
       <actinic:block if="%3cactinic%3avariable%20name%3d%22IsP3PPolicyUsed%22%20%2f%3e"><link rel="P3Pv1" href="<actinic:variable name="P3PFullPolicyLink" />"></actinic:block>
       <link href="actinic.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
       <link rel="shortcut icon" href="<actinic:variable name="CatalogURL" />/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
     <style type="text/css">
     /* Here are some styles to override the default styles that are in the Main StyleSheet layout */
      p, table, td, th {
       line-height: 150%;
     <actinic:variable name="JavaScriptFunctions" />
    <body onload="<actinic:variable value="PreloadImages" name="OnLoadScript" />">
             <div class="content-area">
                <actinic:variable name="INNERLAYOUT" />
  7. You can now right click on the home icon and add fragments to let your customer know the site is being worked on.
  8. This can be done by right clicking on the home icon in the content tree, and selecting ‘New Fragment’
