osCommerce integration into website

Recommended Posts

What are the steps to do when trying to integrate osCommerce into a website?

 

I have this website who sells a bunch of products, and assuming all of the HTML files were completely written, what would go into adding the cart into it so it would be totally integrated? I've tried looking around but I would really like a hands-on breakdown of the amount of work it takes.

 

My client uses ipowerweb, which has osCommerce all ready to be installed onto the server from the control panel. So that part I assume should be quite easy.

 

What are the steps after? What kind of coding would go into each html page? I'm also going to use a CMS program into it.

 

thanks for any help or links!

I found it easier and cleaner to replace the old HTML site with osC rather than try to integrate. This way the user always has access to their shopping cart, etc....

Do, or do not. There is no try.

Hi

 

I am presently going through this.

 

What I found was that its easier to adapt a shopping cart into a nice site then a nice site into a shopping cart.

:)

But you have to put your hands into the plumbing a bit and see where its ok to modify things in order to add your own images/design and content...

Hope this helped

Have fun!

Hey,

 

thanks for the two replies. I never saw it like that. I could take the "cart" and build the site on that code instead? Is it very simple? Since I only know very basic php I assume it'd be a pain to do? I was thinking of hiring someone to do it. any documentation on how to go about it?

 

thanks

I use Ipowerweb too - their OSC installer is pretty buggy (I've written to their tech team about this) so hopefully they'll fix it! Here's a recent OSC store I did - www.valerieconfections.com/store - I agree with the previous poster - it's much easier to integrate the store into a site than a site into a store. Valerie already had their site, I just dropped in the various elements to OSC from there.

 

The level of reskin you will be able to perform will depend on the level your knowledge of HTML, CSS, PHP and MySQL is at.

 

cheers
