This page can have graphics and text appear both above and below the school selection drop-downs, but you need to configure the page slightly first.


First, we need to move this page into your skins folder so that you can edit it:

  1. Log into your site with an FTP client.
  2. Copy the directory 
    /views/AeRntSchoolSelect/ to your local computer.
  3. Then, copy that directory from your local computer back to 
    /Skins/Skin_1/Views/AeRntSchoolSelect. Notice it's now in the skins folder.
  4. When done correctly, you should be able to access 
    /Skins/Skin_1/Views/AeRntSchoolSelect/index.cshtml for editing.

    Your folder structure in FTP should now look like this



Now, we need to add “topic tokens” to the code of index.cshtml


  1. Open /Skins/Skin_1/Views/AeRntSchoolSelect/index.cshtml for editing
    ***if you are not using Skin_1, please use your skin folder instead.
  2. Find the line in the code that looks like this:
    <div class="row school-rental-row">

  3. Directly above that line add this topic token:
    @Html.Topic("aerntschoolselectheader")


    *click image to enlarge. Your file may not be color coded. This screenshot was taken using Notepad++ with the language set to "HTML"

  4. Find the lines in the code (at the bottom of the page) that look like this:
    <script src="~/Scripts/aeRntSchool.js"></script>

  5. Directly above that line, add this topic token:
    @Html.Topic("aerntschoolselectfooter")


    *click image to enlarge. Your file may not be color coded. This screenshot was taken using Notepad++ with the language set to "HTML"

Next, we need to add those topics into your store.


  1. Log into your /aesys panel.
  2. In the left navigation, click “Content” and then “Manage Topics
  3. Click “Create Topic” in the upper right of the page.
  4. Paste “aerntschoolselectheader” in the Topic Name, Title, and Description.
  5. Check the box for “Published
    Your Topic should look something like this: 


  6. Save, then Close.
  7. Repeat 3.3-3.6, but use “aerntschoolselectfooter” as the Topic Name, Title, and description.

Finally, we need to check and make sure it works.

  1. Refresh your store in /aesys by clicking "Refesh Store" in the top right corner.
  2. Go to the front end of your website and add /aerntschoolselect.aspx to your url. 
  3. If all steps were followed correctly, your site should be displaying the topic contents on the Instrument Select page. You can now add text, images, and any other content content to your topics and they will display on the page.


If you want to style this page further, only add styles to /Skins/Skin_1/Css/custom.css. Editing the actual index.cshtml file, or any other .css file should not be necessary.
