By default Ecommerce WD uses its own template for product, manufacturer and category pages, but you can make necessary changes in Manage Templates.

Otherwise you can manually add the php code to the template using Import from Theme template option instead. To reset the changes press Custom Template. which is the ecommerce default design.


In Products data you can change weight and dimensions units, as well as enable/disable SKU, UPC, EAN, JAN, ISBN, MPN. In Feedback tab enable/disable product rating and review possibility.
