Setting Display Templates for Categories

Display templates allow you to choose how categories and their products are displayed on the Siebel eSales Web site. They are associated with categories when the categories are created or edited.

There are five display templates. Use Table 9 to help decide when to use a particular template.

Table 9. Category Templates
Add to Cart
Use this when you want customers to move items from a list to the Shopping Cart one at a time.
Category Only
Use this for categories that have subcategories but no products.
Multiselect Checkbox
Use this when you want the customer to select items from a list and move all selected items to the Shopping Cart at one time.
Product Basic
Use this to include the name of the product, a description, and quantity.
Product Rich
Use this basic template to include just the name of the product and a description.

The following procedure assumes that the category already exists. For information on creating new display templates, see Creating New Display Templates for Categories.
