The e-commerce.

osCommerce for dummies


Recommended Posts

I started a webpage today with Powweb
Where do I go from here?


Somewhere else is my advice. Do a search of the forum for the word PowWeb, and see what you find. Wouldn't be my first choice by a long way.

I can try again but basically what I'd like to know is ---


Is there a good tutorial that says what each feature of osCommerce is --

how you actually use it -- step1 then step2 etc


especially if there is something principally pretaining to Powweb using osCommerce for the shopping cart ---


Back to the Dummies version

You know the version for someone totally ignorant.

osCommerce is not like some other Shooping Carts. It doesn't give you a script with a "Buy Now" button to insert into an already made web page. It provides the web pages, database, and software for the catalog, shopping cart, shipping, payment processing, customer reviews, etc. Most people install osCommerce and then modify the code (HTML embedded in PHP files and the CSS file) to change the default appearance of the site.


There's a contribution called Simple Template System that allows you to define an HTML file that is used as a template for the site. Many people use that and like it. I suggest you go to the Contribution Support forum and read up on it.
