It is unclear how to customize an exchange generated page.  We understand what is stated in the Codex here (http://ithemes.com/codex/page/Theming_Exchange_-_Customize_Ghost_and_Product_Pages_Output). I presume it has to be done, but what else would we have to do to accomplish the below?  

Let's take for example, you want to customize the Exchange-generated Profile page and also assume you are using the Exchange-generatedPurchases, Profile, and Downloads  Exchange-Generated pages.  We understand that if you disabled the Downloads page on the Settings Menu, the Downloads hyperlink will not show up when you are on the Exchange-generated Profile page.  However, if you kept the Downloads exchange-generated page active, and surfed onto the Exchange-generated Profile page, how would you eliminate the hyperlink that for example shows up to theDownloads and other related pages?

I have a similar question. How do you change the loop on an exchange generated page? Particularly, I'd like links to show up at the at the bottom instead of the top.

Hi kwchin2002ithemes,

In the particular example you gave, it be best just to disable the Downloads page if you aren't using it.  I'm not sure I understand the point in leaving the page enabled if it's unnecessary and you don't want the link to show.

However, if this sort of thing is necessary, you can either hide the link using CSS or you would need to make edits to Exchange's file.  

Taking tee_na's example, you'll first want to create a directory name "exchange" in your theme.  Then (using the customer's profile page as an example), go into your /lib/templates, find the content-profile.php file.  Make a copy of that file before you make your changes.  In your copy, try moving line 22 down to line 30.  Then save the copy and upload it to the exchange directory you created in your theme (at the top of each template file, you'll see the exact directory in your theme to add the file to).  Now, on the profile page, your menu will be at the bottom.  Keep in mind, you'll need to do this for each page in the menu if you want it at the bottom of all of the pages.
