An exclusive feature of the pro versions of Shopping Cart Creator and Shopping Cart Designer is the ability to create an online store with a comprehensive search function. Here are the steps you need to take to add a search box to your shop:

  1. Open your theme in Shopping Cart Designer Pro.
  2. Go to File > Upgrade Theme to Shopping Cart Creator Pro
  3. You will be prompted to save your theme. We suggest adding the word "Pro" to the filename to make it easier to identify later.
  4. Click Save. This converts your theme so it is compatible with Shopping Cart Creator Pro and opens a window listing the new areas of the theme you can work with. Close this window.
  5. Select Search Box Properties from the drop-down list on on the right-hand side of the workspace.
  6. Click the Advanced tab.
  7. Deselect the Hide search box checkbox.

The search box will appear on your theme. You can then use the tools in the program to customize it to your heart's content.
