The lovely people over at Nop-Templates have been kind enough to let me have access to their new Jewelry Template for nopCommerce; today I’ll put it through its paces, and see if it lives up to the quality of the other templates they’ve released for nopCommerce.

I’m leveraging Visual Studio 2012 and MSSQL 2012, downloaded from the Microsoft site as a part of my Website Spark membership. I’ve followed the usual steps to set up a new instance of nopCommerce on my local server, and copied the Jewelry theme files into the Presentation/Nop.Web folder.Learn More

Every e-commerce site should have an SSL (secure socket layer) certificate configured and installed; today, we’ll talk about getting your SSL certificate installed, and activate SSL for your nopCommerce site.
Step 1: Make sure you know the domain name you’ll be using. If the site is already live, that’s usually a foregone conclusion, but if it’s not live yet, or you may be using a variant for your e-commerce area, be sure that you’ve got the right domain name identified before you place your order.Learn More
