Types of SiteBuilder Customizations

NetSuite SiteBuilder is customized in four basic ways: the templates are changed for structural HTML, adding NetSuite tags and custom fields & tags for additional record, CSS for look and styling, and JavaScript & NetSuite SuiteScripts for functional changes & additional record data. We are experts in each of these areas which allow us to customized and expand SiteBuilder to do virturaly anything. Continue below for more.

NetSuite SiteBuilder Themes and Templates

NetSuite SiteBuilder is template driven. That means, each piece of a web page (content, structure and look) is controlled by various themes & templates that can be customized and specified on a site-wide, category or item level.

The theme controls the entire website and contains the templates for the head-tag, the header, left side section, content section, and footer. Custom layouts and templates used for the site can also be specified in the theme. Tabs, Category, & Item List layouts contain two templates each: one for content and another for the cells. Customize those for your specific needs. Items and Information Items use a template file that usually is where the most customization happens.

When you customize a template, all the categories or items that use that template are immediately updated. You may be tempted to create a different template for each type of category or item customization you want, be we've found out the hard way, that that is not a good idea. Keeping one type of template, then have it modify the display via custom tags, css and scripting is the best way over time.

We've learned to customize templates in a orderly and specific manner. We structure the HTML for SEO purposes, ease of site maintenance, and to allow for various customizations to function.

Expanding with Custom Fields and Tags

The website's functionality and display can be changed or expanded by modifying various templates within the current "theme", and the layouts and templates used for the category list, item list and item detail displays. Typically, one set of layouts and templates populate the site's HTML no matter how many items you have or categories you set up. Customizing these templates is what gives NetSuite websites their power

We can help by doing the initial set-up for your internal NetSuite web site. We set-up NetSuite SiteBuilder themes, layouts and templates and can include our exclusive, in-house-developed and supported features or any desired customization.

Functional Customizations with JavaScript & NetSuite SuiteScript

Most users need a more customized website to display their content and items, provide the needed information about items to capture the sale, and even a customized checkout experience. This is done by modifying the HTML of the theme and templates, adding styling via CSS, injecting JavaScripts to expand functionality; even custom fields from your item and entity records can be integrated into your site.

The most popular customizations we are asked to make to a site are changing how the item detail template functions, especially when matrix items are selected, installing and customizing NetSuite's latest responsive cart, checkout and my account scripts (replacing the standard SiteBuilder cart & checkout), and making the full site responsive, yet still use SiteBuilder.

We are experts with HTML, CSS and JavaScript and have extensive experience coding NetSuite web pages. Add in our creativity and very advanced customization & styles are now available. So, if you have a design or feature that is looks difficult, or even impossible, give us a call. You'll be surprised at what we can accomplish. And if that isn't enough we now offer customized SuiteScripts to add even more previously unavailable features to your NetSuite web site.

Standard Cart verse Advance Cart/Checkout

NetSuite SiteBuilder has a basic cart and checkout turned on by default. There are limited customization possibilities and it is not responsive, so it is a good idea to upgrade. Fortunately, NetSuite offers a free download of the same cart /checkout / customer center that SCA uses, though modifies for use with SiteBuilder.

If you want to stay with the standard cart and checkout there are few things we can do (see here). If you want your handheld users to more easily checkout and view your customer center, have us install & customize the latest SCA for SiteBuilder. Give us a call.

NetSuite has spent years developing and improving upon their latest cart / checkout / customer center. For SiteBuilder, they offer it as a free bundle. The current version is excellent with all sizes of screens –- from desktops to mobile handhelds -- and is designed to allow for easier updating in the future.

It is controlled via hundreds of modules of text, JavaScript files, and server pages. All text is customizable via an external file. Item cells are modifiable and can be added to with standard or custom item record fields. The checkout can be organized into multi-page or single-page checkout. It is near feature parity with SCA, is responsive, has more customization options; but it needs a few hours to install, add to your site, & customize to your exact needs. Give us a call.

*Responsive Cells: We create responsive item list cells completely differently than anyone else. The cells expand horizontally until an additional cell can be added. It is graceful and barely noticeable. Our cells also expand vertically, meaning you can have different amounts of information in each cell, yet ALL the cells in any given row are all the same height. Finally, our method encourages two cells per row on handhelds in portrait mode, instead of everyone else's single cell per row. Makes shopping easier. And best of all they still use normal NetSuite SiteBuilder templates and layouts. Check them out; our responsive item list cells are fantastic!

**Filter Item Lists By... Our filters work on the item list or category list level. Items displayed can be filtered by any custom item field, or by price range. Since all the data is pre-rendered via daily scripts, the page loads fast and filtered results display immediately. All data and scripts are kept within the safety of NetSuite's system.
