Choose Skin


DNHAT, as you must have noticed, is highly configurable. Layouts are what you need when you want to stand out of the crowd. From the homepage cover image, arrangement of the various blocks, the marketplace search engine to the domain landing page and web form, Layouts give your marketplace unique look and touch. That's not all. With the help of layouts, you can enable or disable various elements of the marketplace.

For convenience, the layouts section has been grouped into tabs with self-explanatory names:
