A. Understand Web Base Library

By default, the Web Base Library is available for all ShopBase Creator websites. This library contains all of the templates carefully curated and designed by the ShopBase Creator Team. Each template serves a different purpose and can be used to launch your web page right away. You cannot edit or add templates into the Web Base Library.

To access the Web Base Library:

From your ShopBase Creator admin, go to Website > Themes.


The Web Base Library will be displayed in the Libraries section, you can click to view its details.


Here, you can view all details and templates of the Web Base Library, including the page templates, section templates, block templates, custom blocks, and styles.


For Web Base Library's page templates, you can click to preview it before using it on your website.



B. Create a new library

If you have plenty of website designs that you want to save as templates and reuse them across different websites on ShopBase Creator, you must first create a library where you can store your templates into.

From your ShopBase Creator admin, go to Website > Themes.


Under Libraries, click Create a library.


In the dialog, enter a name and short description for your library. Then, click Save.


After your library is created, it will be listed in the Libraries section as below:



C. Edit a library

From your ShopBase Creator admin, go to Website > Themes.


In Libraries, click Edit next to the library you want to edit.


Here, you can view all details and templates of your library.

Name: Your template's name.
Description: Your template's description.
Page templates: includes all of your saved page templates that are sorted into this library.
Section templates: includes all of your saved section templates that are sorted into this library.
Block templates: includes all of your saved block templates that are sorted into this library.
Custom block: includes all of your custom blocks that are coded and uploaded to this library.
Styles: includes all fonts and colors that are saved to reused in Site styles and Page styles.


Block and section templates will be divided into smaller categories for easy management.


These categories will be displayed on the Insert panel when designing new web pages.


All categories with the same name will be merged when displaying on the Insert panel.

You can add a new category by clicking on the Add category button.


In the dialog, select an icon and enter a name for the new category.


To edit a category, click on the Edit button. Then, you can make changes to its icon and name.


To delete a category, click on the Delete button.


To rearrange a category, click and drag it to the desired position.


You can enable/disable templates as needed. When a template is disabled, it is no longer available for use on any website to which this library is linked, but it is not deleted and can be enabled again for future use.


You can also edit the template's name, or delete it by clicking on the Action button and select the respective buttons.


Once finished, click Save template.

D. Delete a library

From your ShopBase Creator admin, go to Website > Themes.


In Libraries, click Delete next to the library you want to delete.


After deleting a library, you will no longer be able to use the templates saved to that library. Any templates that were in use prior to the delete are unaffected.
