Custom QuickCode Tag Editor

QuickCode™ tags are pseudo-HTML tags used in the store's templates, which are translated into dynamic content when the web page is viewed in a web browser. 


Custom QuickCode tags can be created to display something that's not already available.  For example, the company's mission statement, or even a custom header or footer that is used on every store page.

The Custom QuickCode™ Tag Editor is used to create and modify custom QuickCode™ tags. 


To add a new custom QuickCode™ tag:


  1. Go to Design > Add a Custom QuickCode Tag.
  2. Give the Custom QuickCode Tag a name. Required.
  3. Enter a brief description of what this Custom QuickCode Tag will do.
  4. Enter the content for the Custom QuickCode Tag.
  5. Click Save Changes when finished.


To edit an existing custom QuickCode™ tag:


  1. Go to Design > Search Custom QuickCode Tags.
  2. Click either the SID number or the icon associated with the custom QuickCode tag.
  3. Make the intended changes to the custom QuickCode tag.
  4. Click the Save Changes when finished.


Custom QuickCode Tag Columns

SID (System ID)
The SID (System ID) is a unique number that identifies the tag to the system.  This number cannot be changed.

QuickCode Tag
The actual QuickCode Tag to be used in the store's HTML templates.  For example: {CUSTOM-1}. Note:  The QuickCode tag will not be visible until it is created.

QuickCode Tag Name
The name of the QuickCode™ tag is used to identify it to store administrators.

QuickCode Tag Description
The description is optional. 

QuickCode™ tags may contain HTML, PHP, JavaScript, and CSS, as well as other QuickCode™ tags.  Modular Merchant provides a WYSIWYG editor for easier editing of the HTML.  When a QuickCode™ tag is included in an HTML template, the tag will be automatically translated into the content of that tag, including interpreting and displaying the results of any HTML tags, PHP, JavaScript, or CSS code.

You can find complete help files for the HTML editor at Editor Help

The editor is designed for editing HTML and displaying the end product of that HTML while you edit it.  If you are including PHP, JavaScript, or CSS in your QuickCode™ tag, you need to click the Source button on the editor, so that you are entering unformatted text.  If you do not do this, your PHP, JavaScript, and CSS code will not work.
