In Part 1, we covered how to create a custom page in nopCommerce using the Topic technique; today, we’ll cover how to create a new page that supports multiple features, such as topics and widgets.
My client wanted a page for a gallery, which needed a slideshow in addition to the topic. In order to leverage one of the slider widgets, we needed to go beyond the simple topic solution covered in Part One.
We’ll start out with the usual disclaimer; these instructions presume you at least have Visual Studio Express 2010, and have opened up your solution in Visual Studio. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’ s begin.

nopCommerce is a top-notch e-commerce system, one of the best open-source .Net-based e-commerce applications available. However, it can be a bit less than straightforward to add additional content to a nopCommerce implementation. Clients may request additional content such as informational pages on the background and history of their products, or a gallery to display previous designs or products. Here’s two ways to accomplish that with nopCommerce.

It’s highly recommended for a website to have a customized 404 page. Customized 404 pages provide an opportunity to re-direct site visitors to areas of interest and focus, and maintain branding visibility. At this time, nopCommerce (2.65) doesn’t have a built-in 404 customization solution. However, there is a way to implement one, using the MVC framework nopCommerce is based on.
I’d like to express my appreciation to nopCommerce forum user “Threadrock“, who posted the link to Dave Bouwman’s how-to article “Custom 404 Pages for ASP.NET MVC 3“. In this article, Dave Bouwman covers the steps to create your custom 404 route for an MVC solution. Since nopCommerce is based on Asp.Net MVC, you’ll find the detailed explanation to be very helpful.
