Instructions for Use of IntuitSolutions Landing Page optimizer for ProStores

The Landing Page Optimizer has been installed onto your ProStores site as a static template page. To access this page to make edits:

Log into your ProStores back-end
Navigate to Store Design > Page Template Manager, Select the current Store Version from the drop-down menu at the top, and find the ‘Category Description’ template under Other category- towards the bottom.

Here, be sure to copy all of the text from the template and paste it into a Text Editor: such as TextEditor or Sublime Text, NOT Microsoft Word or Works

Back up this file as-is to ensure that nothing gets lost in the edits that you’re about to make.

Category and Subcategory On-Page Information

Level 1 Category

Towards the top of this template, you will see the following lines of code wrapped the SS:WHEN tag:

Landing Page Optimizer Snippet

Change the words ‘Level 1 Category Name’ to the Category you’d like to edit Exactly how it is named: Capitalization and spaces included.
In the line beneath you’ll see that this changes the Header (h1) for the page. Fill in what you;d like the header for this category page to be into the double quotes after value=.

Follow the same procedure as above in the value next to the “description” set to add description text under the Category Heading. This text should include key phrases and strong tags for Optimal search engine performance.

To add additional entries for Categories: Copy the block above: From The open SS:WHEN TEST to the closing SS:WHEN.
Paste the block beneath for the new entry. We strongly recommend you leave the same indent structure as the entry above, for organization, readability, and usability.

Level 2 categories AKA SubCategories

You will notice a subcategory section of this template directly beneath the Level 1 categories. It functions the same way as the Level 1 Categories described above.

Now, where it says ‘Main Category:Sub Category’, enter Level 1 categories and level 2 categories separated by a : (colon). Again, these must be entered exactly as they were named in the store- Capital letters and spaces included.
Follow the instructions above in filling in the SubCategory pages’ on page titles and description text.

Additional entries for Subcategories must be entered the same way- Copy the subcategory block from The open SS:WHEN TEST to the closing SS:WHEN.
Paste the block beneath for the new entry. We strongly recommend you leave the same indent structure as the entry above, for organization, readability, and usability.

*Important Note: Any changes or additions to your category structure must be carried over to this template for congruency. This template takes existing category pages by name and assigns information to the top of their pages. If the name is gone or changed, this information has nowhere to go.
