You Pagination works automatically. There is nothing you need to do to it. You can turn if off globally under 'Variables' by changing 'is-paging' to "No". You can also create the 'is-paging' property on any page and set it to "No" to turn pagination off on that page specifically.Special Item Text Area
There is a banner area for promotional text below each item listed on category pages. Please note that this only appears below items, not categories. Therefore, if you want all of the elements in a row to line up, you need to have either strictly categories or strictly items listed on a page. Do not show a mix of categories and items on one page.
This feature will first look for the 'free-shipping' property. If it is set to "Yes" the free shipping banner will display. If it is set to "No" the feature will look to see if the 'abstract' property is empty. If there is text in the 'abstract' property, that will be displayed. If the 'abstract' is empty, the default text from the 'global-abstract' property (under 'Variables') will be displayed.
You can use a span tag to emphasis certain text in the property and break tags for line breaks.
Here is an example:
Item PagesSpecial Imaging Package
The special imaging package displays the image from the 'image' property as the main image. The insets (inset, inset2, inset3, etc.) are displayed as thumbnails below the main image.
The main image has arrows on the left and right to scroll through the thumbnails. If you hover over the main image, a zoom magnifer will appear for zoom functionality. If you click on the main image, the click to enlarge window will pop up showing the main image with the ability to scroll through the thumbnails with left/right arrows.
The thumbnails have arrows on either side to scroll through additional thumbnails. If a thumbnail is clicked, it will replace the main image.Vendor Link
The 'Vendor-link' property can be used to create a link to a vendor or category. The link will appear to the right of the breadcrumb trail. The property accepts raw text and html.
