Category Thumbnail HTML allows you to pull items from your shopping cart into
your actual website pages by category.
You can manage your Categories under Inventory>Manage Categories. If you
currently do not have any categories, you can create categories and
subcategories under Inventory>Manage Categories>Add Category.

SHTML code which can be used in your website programming code. This code will
display items by category, and the options you select will change what the code

the following steps, you will be able to generate code which can be used in your
website programming code.
1. Select the Category you would like to pull the code for. 2. Choose the
options you would like for columns, title, price display. 3. Choose whether
you would like the thumbnail to link to the item page itself. Check the box if
you would like the thumbnail to link to the full size image. Leave this box
unchecked if you would like the thumbnail to link to the item page itself. If
left unchecked the customer can still select to view the full size image on the
item page itself.
Generate the code:
"Show Thumbnail Include Code" generates SHTML code which is generated
dynamically by taking the current information from the shopping cart items. The
advantage to using SHTML code is that it automatically updates your items and
categories on your webpage as you update those items/categories in your shopping
cart. This saves you time in having to update information in 2 different places.
"Show Thumbnail Html" generates standard HTML code which would need to be
updated if your items change. The advantage to using standard HTML is that it
does allow for additional customization of the look of the items. Typically this
option is used by web designers who have had experience with manipulating HTML.
