How to start editing look of page

Not sure if there is a true WYSIWYG editor for this sort of site.

 

I only use a text editor (php designer), and review the changes on my local server on the fly.

 

How involved are your changes?

 

Most of the time, changes can be made on the stylesheet, header, footer, and column files which should sort all the basics out.

 

Perhaps give us an idea of what you are looking to do.

Well basically I have a template design (accuoptics.com) which I want the catalog index.php page to look like. What will be the easiest way to go about this?

 

 

thanks alot

So can i just copy and paste HTML code directly into the header.php file and it should show up on the index.php file when I open it?

 

 

i dont think so mate :-(

 

i think the actual index.php page needs editing, its just what im trying to find out too, but each time i edit the text i mess up the code and the site stops working, so i have to upload my backed up copy

You are using STS and while it is different from a standard osC install, I think you need to edit the text in the same places. It says that much on your homepage. It also looks like you have included some of your own text.

 

Open includes/languages/english/index.php and look for:

 

define('TEXT_MAIN', 'Edit anything between these single quotes');

 

That should get you going!

The header.php file can basically be split up into 3 groups.

 

Don't touch anything down to about line 55 where the first table starts.

 

You can use the <table> line if you wish.

 

This first table (which looks like this)

 

 

<table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
 <tr class="header">
<td valign="middle"><?php echo '<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT) . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'oscommerce.gif', 'osCommerce') . '</a>'; ?></td>
<td align="right" valign="bottom"><?php echo '<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_ACCOUNT, '', 'SSL') . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'header_account.gif', HEADER_TITLE_MY_ACCOUNT) . '</a>??<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_SHOPPING_CART) . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'header_cart.gif', HEADER_TITLE_CART_CONTENTS) . '</a>??<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_CHECKOUT_SHIPPING, '', 'SSL') . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'header_checkout.gif', HEADER_TITLE_CHECKOUT) . '</a>'; ?>??</td>
 </tr>
</table>

 

is the logo and the small images on the right. This you can change to whatever you want your header to look like.

 

The 2nd table

 

<table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="1">
 <tr class="headerNavigation">
<td class="headerNavigation">??<?php echo $breadcrumb->trail(' ? '); ?></td>
<td align="right" 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>

 

is the breadcrumb trail and the links on the right in the grey line.

 

Below that is wrapped in <?php> tags and should be left alone.

 

Don't forget to backup your files before making any changes. Perhaps commenting out the areas you do not want for the time being whilst making changes is a safer way to go.
