Since this is for the design aspect, I thought I would mention a good starting place for background images, images, and buttons. This could give shop owners a good start point for design.

How do I have image icons of all the categories with a row of latest additions at the bottom, instead of the whole main page filled with latest additions?

Thanks for the link! I don't know enough web programming languages to make modifications in the source myself, so the addon is going to be a real help.

Hey guy's,

 

I'm new here. I run a forum and have a need for an online shop so I chose OSCommerce smile.png Glad I did. I'm not far off finishing other than these damn info boxes biggrin.png

 

I have been searching for hours but can only come up with things for pre 2.3 sad.png

 

Is there an easy way to change the colours? My site is at shop.talkheli.co.uk] I want to change the blue box colours.

 

Cheers in advance,

 

Tom

You can't have looked very hard...if you just go to the first post in this topic and start reading you will see how you can easily change box/button colors at the site...

If he, like myself, doesn't know web programming, won't be able to tell what exactly we can do in the files there. In the first place, are those blue bars images or something made with code?

 

Is there anywhere we can find sort of theme packs for osC?

It seems that some are to lazy to read the info themselves and need it spoon feed, so here it is...

 

You can find information, download new themes or create your own themes at www.jqueryui.com

 

And that is actually from the very first post in this topic!

Also search the add ons section applicable for 2.3.1 and look for jquery.

Wow, nice welcome.

 

I actually asked, "Is there an easy way......"!

 

I apologise that I harbour very little knowledge compared to you, but frankly, as far as I am concerned, that is not easy!!

 

Now, if someone is willing to offer any help on how to use jquery to achieve what I am looking for then I thankyou in advance.

Yes there is an easy way, unfortunatly you have to invest the time to read, learn and apply. The info is all there in the links provided. The alternative is to pay someone to do it for you.

 

This thread goes through all the steps to get you started.

 

Cheers

Again, we don't know how this JQuery thing works or how we apply it. The first post did mention we can create themes for osC at JQuery website, but how do I start making a theme meant for osC? Or will any JQuery theme will work? If any JQ themes will do, what exactly does JQuery cover?

 

In any case, this thread doesn't seem to be for noobs, thanks for all the help so far.

Thanks Geoffrey,

 

As OXWIVI say's, I have hit a wall after downloading jquery, thanks for the help. I do not have the base knowledge or time to invest it seems so I will look for a paid alternative.

 

Thanks,

OSC already includes jquery. All you have to do is to replace a few files and change one or two bits of text.

Thankyou Steve,

 

I edited /ext/jquery/ui/redmond/images/ui-bg_gloss-wave_55_5c9ccc_500x100.png using paint to the colour I wanted and it has worked :)

 

I now have a faint blue line round the boxes which I would like to get rid of but I have made progress.

 

Thanks,

 

Tom

I edited the line:

 

.ui-widget-header { border: 1px solid #000000; background: #5c9ccc url(images/ui-bg_gloss-wave_55_5c9ccc_500x100.png) 50% 50% repeat-x; color: #ffffff; font-weight: bold; }

 

in: /ext/jquery/ui/redmond/jquery-ui-1.8.6.css

 

to get a black border also.

You can edit includes/header.php and/or stylesheet.css , but oscommerce 2.31 is using the grid960 system as default so a "header" image can not be wider than the site. (unless you set a body background image or change the "structure" of the oscommerce div layout ).

 

If you just want it higher you can set the header height higher in stylesheet.css and if its the "logo" then you will also need to change the height/width settings for the logo image in includes/header.php

I'm simply trying to get my banner to the bottom of the right column. All info I've found is for 2.2 I'm running 2.3.1 so therefor I don't have column_right(left). I'm supposed to be able to use template_bottom(I think-and have again lost but will find), When I added the banner code to the bottom of, template_bottom, nothing changed.

 

added:

 

<?php if ($banner = tep_banner_exists('dynamic', 'link1')){?>

<?php echo tep_display_banner('static', $banner); ?>

<?php

}

prior to the last <?

 

Thank you for any assistance

SS

Boxes designed for 2.2 will not work in your 2.3.1 store. Try the Banner Box addon for 2.3.1.

I did look at that Jim, I don't have anything that will open a gzip. I was hoping it was a simple code placement. I guess I'll see what I can find to open that file.

 

Thanks

Its a tar file and winzip should open it.

7-Zip will open everything and compress everything except RAR.
