Help! Changing table sizes and removing boxes!


Recommended Posts

Hi, im having trouble editting the size of my tables on the index. I have made quite a few changes but i am now stuck and cant figure out what to do next. Here is a link to my store page,




I want to extend the catagories box out a bit so it will fit all on one line. Also how can i shrink the size of the font, im pretty sure its in the stylesheet.css but i cant figure out which ones to change.


Also, i want to know if i can shrink the size of the new products for the month section. Its a 3x3 table now i want to make it a 1x3 so its only one line of 3 instead of such a large table. If thats not possible id like to just delete it, if anyone can help me do that.


Lastly, I wanted to delete or change the boxes on the right for language and currency selection. Maybe switch them to a total price or anything else. If thats not possible id like to rid of them all together, thanks in advance guys!

many different ways to solve your first question. You could alter the definition for BOX_WIDTH in catalog\includes\application_top.php default is 125px. The other is to change the box class with a nowrap so the text for each category stay on the same line.


But if you have multiple categories levels that could cause a problem as the entire left navigation may take a lot of space.


For the 2nd question look the admin->configuration->max values set the New Products Listing to the number you want to display

You can adjust the width of the boxes at the sides in catalog/includes/application_top.php


It should be about line 60, its called BOX_WIDTH, and is normally set at 125 so if you want it wider increase the number a bit.


With the new products you can set the maximum number from within admin, its in configuration - maximum values, its currently set to 9.


To get rid of the currencies and languages you will have to manually edit the column_right.php file, which is in your catalog/includes folder, you can remove the lines you dont need, such as....


require(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'currencies.php');

require(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'languages.php');


Hope thats of help.
