Hi folks.

 

I am looking for a recommendation. I have 2 sites being built right now using this cart. On the Under construction page I would like to be able to encourage people to sign up to be notified when the site launches. Is there any way I can add a form that would allow these visitors to register but NOT let them see the almost empty shopping section? I would like the registrants to be saved to the existing database.

 

Thanks in advance for any insight.

Hmmmm.... certainly doable (anything is doable). You could start by commenting out a few info boxes in column_left.php and column_right:

- categories.php

- manufacturers.php

- whats_new.php

- shopping_cart.php

- search.php

 

Things like that. You'd simply be removing the links that allow people to add to the cart or purchase.

 

Also comment out the call to the "New Products" box in catalog/index.php .

I see where you are ging with this. Great idea. Whay my constarints are, however, is that while I am imputting products, it is always nice to refer back to the site to be able to see products being entered and dicker with the design.

 

I thought that I could add a form to the Splash page that, in essence, works like the contact page. Doable still?

 

Thanks!

sure! Here's another idea - - make an index2.php, application_top2.php, column_left2.php, and column_right2.php. Edit the index2.php to call application_top2.php instead of application_top.php, and so on for the left and right columns.

 

Then, tinker with the index page to make it for your soon-to-be customers.

 

Now you have 2 websites, one for you, as you develop, and one for people to sign up.

Thanks Jared. I think that will do it.
