MyMuse Options


Global default settings for menu types which display products in different layouts and formats.

How To Access

To access this screen:


This screen is where you can set global defaults for menu items that display products. These default values will be used when you select "Use Global" for an option in a products menu item. For example, if you normally want to show the Create Date for an Product in your Products menu items, then set that option to "Show" here and it will be the default value. You do not need to set any of these options. You can adjust them them by menu.

Product options are divided into eight groups as follows. Each controls the appearance of the listed type of layout.




At the top left of the Options screen you will see the toolbar.


The functions are:
