padding-top: 85px !important;
margin-top: 0 !important;


where can I add something like this <a href=""> ?? I want to keep it in the ecwid css design bit if possible

2. I have tried to get the vertical catagories working to the left of my products on screen

What happens is the catagoreis overlap my products and my shop logo banner disapppears.

How can I get this to work???

3. Does ecwid have the ability for customers to leave feedback/reviews, I would have thought this would be included in the price, its a big seller for me and customers and ultimately ecwid
4.does ecwid offer a zoom on the products, not the browser icons the actual pictures of your products right before people buy, like what amazon do (amazing feature)


I’ve checked your website here and your Ecwid store settings.
1. Unfortunately you are not able to modify the HTML code in Ecwid Control Panel > System Settings > Design > Custom CSS Themes because CSS code is intended for changing the style of HTML elements on your page and you can’t add links in any CSS code. Although, if you’ve made this website yourself, you can easily modify the source code yourself to add this picture anywhere you want by adding the <img> tag which must contain a picture and wrap this tag with <a></a> tags so this picture leads the user to the link that you want.

For example:
<a href=””><img src=””></a>
So this code add a picture and when you click on it you are directed to your website:

2. Please try to use the following code in your Custom CSS Themes in your Ecwid Control Panel > System Settings > Design. Add this code at the end of all your CSS codes you entered previously.
.ecwid-categories-vertical {
float: left !important;
position: fixed !important;

div.ecwid-productBrowser {
width: 1000px;
float: left;
margin: 0px 0px 0px 250px !important;
background: url( left top no-repeat;
padding-top: 40px !important;

.ecwid-minicart {
float: right !important;
position: fixed !important;

.ecwid-SearchPanel {
margin: 0px 165px 0px 0px;
Here's what your site should look like as a result:

3. Ecwid doesn’t have reviews feature, however you can add a text field option that your customers can fill in their feedback to you. Please refer to this article on how to set up product options:

4. You can use Ecwid Product Gallery for this case, however you are able to use third party solutions like this one to demonstrate your products like a custom gallery. In order to do that, you need to modify the product description in HTML mode. Please mind that these solution have to use HTML code only, no <script> tags allowed.
