Option 1: Try setting the width in your iframe code as: "width:100%" and see if it works by adjusting the browser window.

Option 2:
In case the above solution does not work for you, try adding a wrapper around your iframe in the source code like this:

<div class="mywrapper">
       <iframe width="100" height="100" src="http://www.your_link_goes_here" frameborder="0"></iframe>

Now, go to your style.css and add this:

    position: relative;
    padding-bottom: 5%;
    padding-top: 5px;
    height: 0;
.mywrapper iframe {
    position: absolute;
    top: 0;
    left: 0;
    width: 100%;
    height: 100%;

Try viewing your webpage now. You can adjust the CSS according to your requirements.

Hello ranaomair,

Go to: Administration > Topics > Edit

Now, in the HTML Editor, you will see option "Tools" > "Source Code" - You will get a popup window.

Simply, paste the embed code (of your google map) in the source code and Save it.

I am glad it helped!

Regarding your question - I think you should consider one of these 2 options:

Option 1) You can create a separate category of discounted products and name it something like "On Sale Products" and only add products to these categories that will be available on sale / discounted prices

Option 2) You do not need to create any separate category. Keep all your products categorized how you will go anyway. In this option, make the use of "product tags". The products that will be available on sale / discounted price, just add a tag with those specific product as "On Sale". Now add the direct "On Sale" tag link in your menu or somewhere on your site and customers will only see sale products in that section.

Example for option 2:
Here is an example of all the products tagged as "computer":
Here is an example of all the products tagged as "digital":

As you can see, these products are in their respective categories but you can simply pick out products based on product tags.

Hope it helps!

Yes, it seems like your theme is using its own view to override the default home view.

Try changing the layout from "_Root" to "_ColumnTwo" and make sure you have "_ColumnTwo" view in "ThemeName\Views\Shared\_ColumnTwo"

(If you don't have "_ColumnTwo" in your theme, simply copy it from the main project and paste it in your theme's "Shared" folder.

Let me know the results (or share screenshot). If you can share the URL of your website, that would be helpful too.

If you wish to add "left column" on your homepage then go to: Nop.Web / Views / Home / Index.cshtml

Change the layout to "_ColumnsTwo.cshtml" like this:

    Layout = "/Views/Shared/_ColumnsTwo.cshtml";
