    Custom HTML box?

    Is there a "Donate" link that I"m missing? (I'm not the most observant person in the world, ha.)

    Custom HTML box?

    My goodness, I should have thought of that! I'm on it!

    Custom HTML box?

    Oh! Is that a concern, then? Better not to show it? 😯

    Custom HTML box?

    @MrPhil and @JcMagpie Well, I think people should either be compensated, or at least receive recognition for their hard work, so I'd like to leave some sort of nod to osCommerce, even if it's not required. I'll play around with modifying that template and floating a div over to the right, I think. It's just the one thing I wanted to remember to do before I move things over to the client's server and I wasn't sure of the wording. Thanks! 😊

    Custom HTML box?

    It's fine if you're tired of answering design questions but, regarding the "powered by osCommerce".... we are required to show it, right? I mean, I've looked at some of the "live" sites mentioned elsewhere on the forum and have noticed that many of them do not credit osCommerce but I thought I saw on another thread that we're supposed to? As to the other question, no need to weigh in on that. Design is something I'm all about and I can be annoying; I get that. No worries.

    Custom HTML box?

    If you guys will forgive me for posting on this thread again, I'm revisiting the subject of keeping osCommerce stand-alone while, at the same time, trying to placate my client, who is adamant about having it look like the rest of his site. With that in mind, I have just these questions: 1.) Is it an acceptable hack, if I increased the size of the navbar and gave it a background image, just to get that "header look" that he wanted? 2.) I used the footerbox information box, placed the segment he really wanted to remain (but as a clickable image) and stretched it to fit. I left the copyright field below that so..... where do I put the "powered by osCommerce"? Is that a box I need to add or can I just float a div to the right? These changes do pretty well on my iPhone and iPad, so I credit that to osCommerce's responsiveness. (screenshots attached)

    Product Sort on Page

    @raiwa Thanks! I'm having a go at editing my index.php. The "find" strings do not seem to be there and I was a bit hesitant to simply upload the file found in the BS Edge Needed folder (since I'm running Frozen) but I've compared the two files and other than the new one referencing page headers (which my existing file does not) I don't think much would change, cosmetically. I've backed up my index.php file, though, so if it all goes pear-shaped, I'll just keep at it, until I get it sorted. 😊

    Product Sort on Page

    The first link you provided is the one I installed and it definitely does allow me to sort within the category in the admin area, but affects no change on the storefront. I'll keep staring at it to determine why this is so. Thank you for the second link; I'll give it a go, as well. 😊

    Product Sort on Page

    I searched through the Apps Marketplace for something that would allow me to sort products on the store page into the order I wanted, but was hesitant to try anything I found because it has been years since most of them have been updated. I found this PRODUCT SORT APP and installed it, but was not observant enough to realize that it only sorts the products within the category in the admin area, but not within the category on the store page. (At least, I am unable to discover how to make that happen, if it is, in fact, meant to.) I'd really like more control over which items are placed where on the storefront page (and possibly even have a "featured" item). Is there an app already existing that would accomplish this and is compatible with the latest Frozen (Github) BS4? If not, do you think this one I installed could be modified to allow a sort order for the store page, as it does for the admin area? Thanks! 😊

    Custom HTML box?

    Well.... I have options; that's for sure, ha! Okay, I'll roll up my sleeves and start playing around with these and see if I can get one of them to land where I want it (and to hold my code). If nothing else, I can "screenshot" that section that is on the rest of the site, place it as an image and just make it clickable, I guess. I'm on it; thanks! 😊

    Custom HTML box?

    Lost my "edit" option but just wanted to add before I have to take off for a bit, that when I say "something that could expand with the amount of content" i only mean expand vertically. And it probably wouldn't need to much, but just have the capability to.

    Custom HTML box?

    @ArtcoInc In my case, it probably wouldn't change much; at least for the site I'm focused on just now. It would just repeat a segment that appears on every page of the full site; sort of a recurring slogan and encouragement to artists who want to sell their work.. So once I filled the box in with that content, using my own CSS, HTML, images, etc., I'd probably leave it. But I build a lot of web sites, mainly for musicians, artists, some for restaurants, home decor... so depending on the site, needs may change. It would be great to have at least one segment of the store where some familiarity with overall site content could land, just to keep things cohesive and to have a central message repeated, even on the store page (although not every site I build has a need for that). I suppose the box wouldn't be that dissimilar to a blog field, but without the WYSIWYG and drop-and-drag. Just basic coding, I think, would be sufficient. Not knowing the bones of osCommerce, I don't even know if this is do-able, but one has to ask. ☺️

    Custom HTML box?

    I saw this question asked HERE in 2014 but no one replied to it. Has anyone here ever developed a custom box for the user's own HTML content? I would like one that would span the width of the page (so 12 columns) and fit just above the footer; something that could expand with the amount of content and be responsive/ *dramatic wail* IS THAT SO MUCH TO ASK? πŸ˜† (You guys are probably going to ban me for asking too many questions. I feel the rejection, already.) 😊

    A Question About Internal LInks?

    @JcMagpie That is exactly what I was thinking! It is, after all, an art gallery, ha! As far as the look of the store, I'm just tinkering around now with being able to get a header up above the Bootstrap navbar, so that it is not the topmost thing in the store, but the header is. I think that will satisfy the customer. I've not discovered yet if there is some box I can put there and then modify; it does look as if the navbar is naturally meant to be the topmost thing. But I'll keep stabbing away at it. There are other shopping carts (like Stiva) that do plug directly into your own web page but they are so far below osCommerce in actual function, that it's sad. For instance... a customer cannot track their order history! It's nowhere in their account! I asked them about this and they seemed surprised that anyone would even want to! Even though I know I could just plug Stiva in and go, I'd rather keep working with osCommerce, because you can't beat it for pure function. It really does take the customer's needs into account. Anyway, rambling now, but yes to using the modal code for displaying artwork! 😊

    A Question About Internal LInks?

    I appreciate all the insight and advice. I commented in my opening post that I realized that this might not be a good idea, overall, but it's good to read through the discussion as to why this is true. I'll focus on styling the store itself, then, rather than wedging it into my existing page. However, I must say I'm impressed by JcMagpie's modal solution. I can think of so many other applications to use this for that are not store-related. Pretty cool! Thank you guys. 😊
