Basic Design Pack Support

Recommended Posts

So to use an image for the background where exactly in this code segment do you enter the image location?

 

In the stylesheet.css file, if you want an image on the outside of the website you add it under the body tag , if you want it in the center of the site you add it under the fixcenter tag

I've finally finished the design of my store and am now looking at adding contributions to add functionality.

 

Is there anyone here who is using Basic Design Pack and the Extra Fields contribution together? Could you post the issues you've had if any. Seeing as most of the code changes with Extra fields are done in the admin area i can't imagine there will be to many problems but thought i'd ask.

 

Thanks

I have installed this contrib and after that used the stylesheet to modify the looks of all the boxes to my liking. After that I installed two contributions with there own boxes, Article manager and Latest news. These boxes however is shown with their original look. I now want to change them to the same look as the rest but cannot figure out how this is done in the Basic Design Pack contribution.

Can you give me a hint how this is done.

You can modify the new boxes you have added to use one of the packs box classes

1. stylesheet.css

 

2. index.php

 

3. add in the banner code from the default oscommerce includes/footer.php file again.

 

4. This would require a major rewrite of many files,

 

5. look in the contributions section

Hello Toyicebear,

 

Thank you for your great contribution.

I'm totally new to osCommerce as well as php. Hope you can help me with my problem here:

 

When I installed the BDP, my left and right columns' tables disappeared. I installed Great Categories and I got back my 'Categories' table. But the other tables like "What's new?" "Quick find" and "Information" as well as the tables on the right hand side of the page are still missing. How can I change them to look like the "Categories" table?

Thank you!

Hi,

How can change this "3. It removes the rounded infobox corners and replaces them with square transparent ones, so you can change the colors in the styleaheet.", and instead use my own produced graphics for box header background, if possible? Where do I change this?

 

This is a very useful contribution.

 

Thank you,

Inside the BDP you can find transparent inforbox corner graphics

Hello,

 

This contrib. made my life much easier but i have still one issue in that contrib which i have not figured out.

Maybe it is coming from anywhere else, but it just happened after the installation.

 

Since I installed the pack, i do have some buttons in German and some in english.

Where can i change the text of those css buttons or where is the link to them?

The button texts are in the main language files, like:

 

includes/languages/english.php

 

includes/languages/greman.php

 

includes/languages/espanol.php

 

etc...

Hi!

Thank you.

 

I am trying to implement the contribution "Search Box anywhere" with this pack, and I am not able to combine it in the top of the header with a header pic that has full width, eg my site is 800 px, my header pic is 800 px, and when I implement the contribution, aligned to the right in a separate table cell, it is shown "outside" the site, to the right of the header. Is it a way to make it shown "on top" of the header pic, with the pic behind/in the background of the search box?

 

Thank you,

Hallo again,

I am trying to go back to the "old" look of the info boxes, using the pack, with own produced graphics with rounded corners, but can not get it right when replacing the graphics with new ones - the only one I can replace is the corner-left, despite the new uploaded files.

 

Any suggestions??

 

Thanks,

The BDP has individual image folders for all the boxes, so to change the corners you will need to add the wanted corner graphics to all the box folders which is inside the images folder

You will have to manually change and place in the code to get that to work.

Thanks. Do you know where and how that is done, and is it easier to do it with original OsCommerce, without your changes?

Just check and make sure that new code is placed correctly within the html tags
