Once you load the zip file for PWA, there should be a readme.txt or install.txt, it was so long ago I really wouldn't be able to advise. As for resizing the box, Try This.

 

I still think you could use the center_shop contribution for your site as well. It would help you give you site a standard size. I'm viewing in 1024x768 and your header is much smaller than your body. Also, you might want to look into a static header. Your header loads every time I click on a product or category or... anything. It gets a little bothersome after a while. Not being picky, JMHO. You might want to concider a different 'theme' to your site as well. I will be honest, when I first saw you post your link in another thread, I opened it quickly, viewed it quickly and closed it. From that brief viewing, I thought your site sold electronics or something of that nature, instead of what you do sell. Last, back to the header, it's rather large. Viewing with 768, it takes up about 1/3 of my screen, so with a 600, I would think it would be at least half of your page which is a lot of valuable 'eye sight' real estate. I think your site is heading in a great direction, but it just needs a few adjustments. Keep up the good work.

The counter is dynamic, and here is the code :)

<?php
$products_query = tep_db_query("select count(*) as count from " . TABLE_PRODUCTS . " where products_status = '1'");
$products = tep_db_fetch_array($products_query);
echo $products['count'] . ' ' . products . '';
?>

Hi, Would someone tell me exactly where to put this code. I would like Dynamic Counter of Total Products under Categories.

 

Thanks,

G.B

There's never a dumb question. We have to learn somewhere, right?

 

It's all in stylesheet.css my friend.

 

For the second row, I created a new style group...

TD.breadcrumb {
 font-family: Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;
 font-size: 10px;
 color: #8C1821;
 font-weight : bold;
}

A.breadcrumb { 
 font-family: Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;
 font-size: 10px;
 color: #8C1821;
 font-weight : bold;
}

A.breadcrumb:hover {
 font-family: Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;
 font-size: 10px;
 background-image: url(images/redbarbg.jpg);
 background-attachment: fixed;
 background-repeat: no-repeat;
 color: #0000A5;
 font-weight : bold;
}

 

Then, in includes/header.php, I edited the cells to reflect the new style...

This

<td class="headerNavigation">  <?php echo $breadcrumb->trail(' » '); ?></td>

 

Should be this

<td class="breadcrumb">  <?php echo $breadcrumb->trail(' » '); ?></td>

 

 

 

 

To center the headers, edit the style of "TD.infoBoxHeading"

add the following style command...

  text-align: center;

 

Below is a sample of mine just to show it's use. My infoBoxHeading may look different from yours because I'm calling for an image background instead of the basic colored background, but you can see where I put the ' text-align: center;' command.

TD.infoBoxHeading {
 font-family: Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;
 font-size: 10px;
 font-weight: bold;
 background-image: url(images/redbarbg.jpg);
 background-attachment: fixed;
 background-repeat: repeat;
 color: #FFFFFF;
 text-align: center;
}

hello! agif, thank you ssooooo much! :D ...man i knew there is something, but perhaps my brain was !@#!@$.........thank you tho, but i still can't control the second row, even i added the code that you told me....i still can only use the original headerNavigation to control... ;)

 

I think that i still miss something here ;)

 

PS...shoot my brain, forgot to say you having a great site tho! :lol:

'headerNavigation'

 

Are you talking about the font color? If so, I created another style for my main header buttons and put them in their own class. I say 'buttons' but I'm really just refering to the 'my account | cart | checkout' in the top navi bar. The class I used was...

 

A.headerbutton { 
 color: #FFFFFF;
}

A.headerbutton:hover {
 color: #0000A5;
}

 

And then I used it to control my header 'buttons' as follows...

<tr class="headerNavigation">
<td align=center valign=middle class="headerbutton">

<a href="index.php" class=headerbutton>Home</a> | <a href="create_account.php" class="headerbutton">New Account</a> | <a href="<?php echo tep_href_link(FILENAME_SHOPPING_CART); ?>" class="headerbutton">Cart</a> | 
<a href="<?php echo tep_href_link(FILENAME_CHECKOUT_SHIPPING, '', 'SSL'); ?>" class="headerbutton">Checkout</a>

Hi,

 

I like your site colors and layout

 

But I have one question for you...

 

How do you get the breadcrumbs "AGC Home ? Catalog" to change color?

 

I been trying to figure it out but it changes all the words on the page

I would like to change my bread crumbs "Home >> catalog" from the white to a red color and leave everything else white.

 

Thanks for your help and contribs

Read the post about 4 up (the big one) that discusses the second row. This will also allow you to change your breadcrumb color as well as the bg color.

 

TD.breadcrumb {
font-family: Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;
font-size: 10px;
color: #8C1821;
font-weight : bold;
}

A.breadcrumb { 
font-family: Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;
font-size: 10px;
color: #8C1821;
font-weight : bold;
}

A.breadcrumb:hover {
font-family: Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;
font-size: 10px;
background-image: url(images/redbarbg.jpg);
background-attachment: fixed;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
color: #0000A5;
font-weight : bold;
}

 

And then make sure you have your breadcrumb using the proper style call....

 

This

<td class="headerNavigation">  <?php echo $breadcrumb->trail(' » '); ?></td>

 

Should be this...

<td class="breadcrumb">  <?php echo $breadcrumb->trail(' » '); ?></td>

I tried what you said and everything is correct.

 

I have it set like this:

My Account  |  Cart Contents  |  Checkout 
This box is white letters with a red background.

 

Home ? Catalog
This box is white letterswith grey background.

 

Whenever I change the bottom box font color it changes the top box.

 

My header.php is exactly the way you described in this post

 

thanks

This box doesn't o anything on my site

A.breadcrumb {

font-family: Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;

font-size: 10px;

color: #000000;

font-weight : bold;

 

This box only changes the seperator color (home >> catalog)

TD.breadcrumb {

font-family: Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;

font-size: 12px;

color: #000000;

font-weight : bold;

 

I know it's something obvious i can't c it though :angry:

Here's the code so you can see my confusion

<table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="1">

  <tr class="headerNavigation">

    <td align="center" class="headerNavigation"><?php if (tep_session_is_registered('customer_id')) { ?><a href="<?php echo tep_href_link(FILENAME_LOGOFF, '', 'SSL'); ?>" class="headerNavigation"><?php echo HEADER_TITLE_LOGOFF; ?></a>  |  <?php } ?><a href="<?php echo tep_href_link(FILENAME_ACCOUNT, '', 'SSL'); ?>" class="headerNavigation"><?php echo HEADER_TITLE_MY_ACCOUNT; ?></a>  |  <a href="<?php echo tep_href_link(FILENAME_SHOPPING_CART); ?>" class="headerNavigation"><?php echo HEADER_TITLE_CART_CONTENTS; ?></a>  |  <a href="<?php echo tep_href_link(FILENAME_CHECKOUT_SHIPPING, '', 'SSL'); ?>" class="headerNavigation"><?php echo HEADER_TITLE_CHECKOUT; ?></a> </td>

  </tr>

</table>

<table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="1">

<tr>

<td class="breadcrumb">  <?php echo $breadcrumb->trail(' » '); ?></td>

</tr>

</table>

I can't figure it out, they call for different stylesheet settings and the header navigation changes everything??? :blink:

If you look at my header in that zip file, I've also given my 'buttons' a new class. I call it 'headerbutton' even though it's just the text. But I guess I did that because I was experiencing your problems. So I then had....

 

<tr class="headerNavigation">

<td align=center valign=middle class="headerbutton">

 

<a href="index.php" class="headerbutton">Home</a> | <?

 

So the "TableRow" still uses the 'headerNavigation" class, but my text uses a seperate class.

Hi, eric, so this

 

Oops, guess I forgot one 

 

ADDITION

 

Divided Menu with Icons

 

is the one for putting an arrow with the selection, right??

 

Also, I have been tweaking the center shop, but at the very buttom of my shop, there still has some white space which is still visible, how would i take it out and only the background left tho?? ;)

 

thank you very much for keeping sharing....sorry to ask many questions so far where this should only be your own topic :P ;)

That should be the script to give you the bullets/menu style.

 

I had that problem as well with the white space. It took me forever to figure out, but I think (if I remember correctly), have you changed your main bg color in your stylesheet.css? Look for any

 

color: FFFFFF

 

If it applies to a text field, don't change it, other than that you can probably change it. Sometimes I will change it to 000000 just to see a big difference to see what exactly it is I'm adjusting. But, I think you should be able to edit...

 

BODY {
 background: #ffffff;
 color: #000000;
 margin: 0px;
}

 

That should fix it.
