I am wondering how others are using cafepress. Are you using Basic shops exclusively with CPShop or both? Do you still keep you shop organized in sections now and when you create new products?

I have one shop. Now that I have cpshop if I should just add products to cafepres without putting them in a section and just pull them into cpshop. Do you just use cafepress to create products and just us cpshop for organizing?

I noticed in some of the demo cpshops, there are long numbers in the shopid fields. Are those basic shops, sections or what? I'm currently using just the name of my shop with filters.

Still working on designing my template. If I want to create a custom home page, do I still need to use the <content> tag?

If I want a left nav that expands and collapses, where can I find some code to copy so I can create it for my site? Also on that, How will I be able to still use the filters I have created and still use the expandable nav?

The long numbers are semi-randomly generated aliases, that appear when the alias field is left blank.

Whether you create a custom homepage or not, you'll still need to create a cpshop template, and in that you'll need a <[content]> tag.

What about this example?
The Name is: MS Migraine
and the Store ID is: 1001_155009

These are in the first boxes for beatboxbetty demo admin under Store ID.

What is that 1001 number? That box isn't created due to a blank box is it?

Right now I just have the content tag in my shop home page. There is a list in the content area that mirrors the left nav. How can I get rid of that list without getting rid of the content tag on a custom home page.

Here's how my shop looks right now:
www.giftsshirtsandmore.com

Still trying to come up with a new design and navigation.

I would still like to know about how to do the expanding left nav. Anyone?

Create a homepage insert file with custom HTML, and tell cpshop where it is in the homepage section of cpadmin.

That's what I figured. My question is why and is it a basic shop or not? I'm just trying to get some ideas on how I might set up my cafepress and cpshop.

Why is it named 1001_155009?  Because I created lots of them, and they're all based on designs from my postcard site, 1001 Postcards.

The design number for that particular design is 155009.  There's nothing nefarious here.  I could have just as easily named it "martystore" if I'd wanted to.

And it is a basic shop, though I created it before premium shops existed.  If I were to do it over again, I'd use a single premium shop.

Oh OK. I was thinking I was missing something some where. I thought maybe you named them that but then I wasn't sure if it was some automated thing.

Thanks Marty.
