Flatland Theme

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

We are expecting a significant number of holiday shoppers at IndieCommerce websites this year. The appearance of your website can have a big impact on sales. To assist with this endeavor for IndieCommerce stores interested in a new look for their website, we’re introducing two new templates/themes.  The first new theme is the Flatland theme.


  • Five different color palettes (ADA compliant for color contrast)
  • Navigational icons (with icon images included in the theme)
  • Built-in slideshow (alt text for slideshow images available for ADA compliance)
  • Re-designed book product page.

Sample sites using the Flatland theme:

It’s important to note that this theme was designed for certain elements to be in specific regions of the theme and with a specific design in mind.  Configuration for several Views and other sections of the theme are required and certain blocks must be placed in particular regions to achieve the intended design.  It is especially important to make use of Themekey to prepare your redesign before changing your default theme to Flatland. 

If you would like to give the Flatland theme a try, please contact [email protected], with the email subject “Flatland Theme".

Documentation for theme configuration is attached as Word, Excel, and PDF file types. Please follow the steps listed in the documents.
