Since the announcement of B2B E-Commerce Portal going into controlled release, we got a lot of positive feedback from customers, partners and colleagues within Exact. Thanks for that!
The focus for the coming period will be on:
- Enabling electronic payment through Ogone (www.ogone.com)
- Adding support for items (or assortments) per account group or account
- Delivery method selection
- Implementation of themes
As mentioned before, the B2B E-Commerce Portal (ECP) will be shipped with 3 ‘themes’. A ‘theme’ includes a set of fonts, colors and images. The portal administrator can easiliy select one of the themes from the ECP menu screen. After that the portal administrator can add, drag and modify widgets. The combination of a theme and widgets provides a lot of flexibility to customize the look & feel. All this without any html or css knowledge.
Of course it is also possible to change the portals’ css file (Cascading Style Sheet). Each theme has an own style sheet. Also a file called ‘custom.css’ is installed. Any changes to the exisiting theme should be added in the custom.css file. These changes should not be done in the theme css file. This way, updates will not destroy your customized style.

Instead of 3 you see 4 themes here. The compact theme is a bonus! Here is an mock-up of the theme:
