- We like the setup on http://www.midwayusa.com. For now please use the same menu links that midwayusa.com uses. (Please not that we can NOT have the same functionality as the midwayusa.com site such as the flyout or the "Shop all departments" drop down. Please exclude those sort of features and keep the design within the functional specs of a CoreCommerce.com store.
- Our Company (Information) Widget. (Please use the links in the "Our Company" section of the midwayusa.com sites footer for this widget.)
- Newsletter Signup (Please reference corecommerce.com documentation for this widget.)
- We really like the design and layout of the midwayusa.com homepage. We would like to incorporate the slideshow and images directly below it. We do NOT want the most popular products section though.
- Our footer should contain the same links as the midwayusa.com.
