triplea posted a topic in General DiscussionsHi Guys, So I have a client who has an existing 7 year old OSCommerce website. They wish to make certain edits to it. One of them being a new Home page altogether, the current home page can't be managed with the CMS but this new home page we envision on creating should be editable via the CMS. Due to budget restraints we're forced to use a theme from Theme Forest. But I'm doubtful whether the new OSCommerce theme will work with the old existing back-end? And whether the new home page would be editable via the CMS? Please let me know the best way to move ahead. Thanks, Ankit.
I was having trouble setting up the store. Before I do anything complicated I want to make sure the basics work, and they dont. I installed oscommerce v2.3.3 and then installed the Theme Switcher's latest version. (I also created a neat theme with ThemeRoller, but I don't get far enough to try to apply it). I moved the "Images" folder, the "Includes" folder and the two additional .php files that came with theme switcher into the main folder of the store. It overwrites two files or one file I don't recall and adds all the rest as new files. Following the instructions, I then went to the Modules > Header Tags > Theme Switcher and enabled it. Everything breaks. I get the following status on the right: The jQuery file is missing! The jQuery UI file is missing! The selected theme was found. The theme CSS file is the wrong version or missing! template_top.php has been modified. The language file was found. And now the entire store has the same basic layout, but all the colors are gone. I'm assuming it's images being placed around that arent showing up. How can I override ONE FILE and now suddenly three are missing? What is wrong? I can't get the default template back, much less any new ones.
I realise what I am looking for probably doesn't exist, but I think if someone would take on the challenge it could make an interesting addon. Also it would take oscommerce to a whole new level !!! I am looking for an addon that allows for a subdomain that can be added to an oscommerce site which has the same database / log in details for customers, whilst being operated on the same css / template, and from the same admin page as the main site. This could allow the main page to be for sales of products and the subdomain to cater for hire / rental of products via means of a booking calendar or a blog to promote your site. Thus giving handy information to customers whilst also attracting extra traffic through added searchable content. This could be product releases, upcoming events or some other useful info. I realise there is a lot in this and will probably need two parts : 1) the addon for the oscommerce subdomain that shares template / css / database / admin with the main site and 2) a booking calendar addon for rental of products / hotel rooms / cars ..... but if anyone has any ideas I think it could make an interesting conversation piece or an epic pair of addons ????
