General store components overview
Your storefront was initially created with a template and/or theme. Both the template and the theme control the way your store is shown and operates to your customers, both from a design and functionality perspective. Going further, CloudCart allows you not only to select from a subset of different themes but also deeply customize the theme you have selected. This is achieved by using all the options under Storefront >> Widgets, and chose which component to add, remove or configure from each of the main component categories.
Below you can see a few options and operate with them in order to further customize your store, so it can work and look like your store!
Contacts Google Map
In Google Map Contacts you can show to your Customers the exact place of your physical Store so that they can easily find you. We offer you different options to modify the view and the settings of the map shown in your Store. When you go to Storefront >> Widgets >> Contacts >> Google Map, you can quickly set:
1) Map Type
Choose the type of your map from the dropdown menu. It could be:
This type will be shown as a photographic map, roads and city names.
This type will be shown as a default, normal map, with names of roads, cities, regions, countries included.
This type will be shown as a map from satellite view with land features included.
This type will be shown with basic topographic features, ups and downs of the landscape, like mountains and canyons.
2) Background color
You can easily change the background color of the map which is usually visible when the map is loading. Click on the default white circle and choose a color.

The User Interface is one of the most important parts of any program because it determines how easily you can make the program do what you want. We recommend the default settings.
