In my opinion it is a lot easier to take the 2.3 core files and build your 2.2 mods onto that, than it is to upgrade ( and risk making whatever mistakes). Just figure out the HTML. The admin side is alot easier to convert than the front. How hard that it is depends on what mods you have.

One of them on Linux is application call "meld" it compare files and directories; I'm 100% sure there is equivalent on Windows (and not only one).


I use the Open Source WinMerge http://winmerge.org/ on the PC - it is excellent for comparing whole directories/files etc..

I just wish osCommerce had an update button like the other cart I am enjoying learning at the moment...

I am however enjoying the module style approach of 2.3, I am currently writing a new header tag module for title/description/meta and tags, instead of just the titles.

I plan to extend Osc 2.3, this time leaving the system tables intact and adding a new table for products called products_descriptions_extended, to store data for use with my new modules/files.

Its going to allow me to upgrade the core code without the issues caused by previous core/custom code merges to some degree. If anyone has any thoughts on this approach they would be welcome.

Cheers,
Pete

hello forum

Am curious if anyone has done any modifications like color or working with the background. I created an background image which will extend full width of page. Now in previous ver's, one just went to the stylesheet.css. In using Web Developer, it displays #bodyWrapper .container_24. So enter piece of code as I did with Rc2a. No changes. Finally found container_24 located in ext/960gs/960_24_col.stylesheet.css and type the code there. Still no results.

This is what I entered:
background-image:url('images/brown075.jpg');
background-repeat:repeat-x;

I realize there are some new folders and files, so wondering if I am missing something? Thank you.

When using the Facebook button it does not load/show a image of the product?

Example http://foxp2.fr.nf/o.../products_id/29

Any way to fix this?

Cheers

Sorry about that. I was assuming this was the correct place.

If you go back a few pages, this was already answered in detail.

Do not make changes to the grid960 stylesheets.

Add a new stylesheet, reference it in the page header and then new ID's or CLASS's for use. Remember you can have muliple classes; http://forums.oscomm...ost__p__1542429

Also you can have a class AND an id at the same time.

<div class="this" id="that">hello</div>

.this {
   background: blue;
   color: white;
}

#that {
   border: 20px solid black;
}

It's a dessert topping AND a floor wax!

Just be aware that CSS has some difficult to understand rules about how cascaded sheets interact and when you have multiple conflicting instances of a property (e.g., multiple colors from different rules and selectors). In general, the more specific a rule is to a given screen element (e.g., an id rather than a class, or a class rather than an HTML tag), the higher its priority. Multiple classes can be a real pain, and not all browsers handle them quite the same (especially if you have a "selector" with multiple classes chained together, e.g., .class1.class2 {...).

Just a "heads up" so when you do something more than very simple CSS, you know that you may have to do some digging to figure out which definition of a CSS property is being applied in a particular case.

Really nice explanation by mrP here I think.

I have to confess that css hierarchy and priorities are a subject that I really haven't got a full handle on yet. ( note to self )

Chaining classes in a selector for me are a key aspect of css coding especially if you are able to build your own little "reusable framework" to cut down the single use classes. Also fantastically useful when pushing and pulling classes via javascript.

Or you could ditch IE and run FireFox with FireBug installed, and use that for examining the loaded page to identify each element of loaded html and css - it's saved me countless days of head scratching and trial and error.

I normally use FF and Firebug, but was suprised the other day to see that IE8 has a 'firebug' style tool built in that is actually quite good.. (for looking at classes etc)

Load a page in IE 8, Hit F12 to load the Developer Tools (DOM Browser), and then CTL+B and click on an element.. /smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />
