Changing the Home Page

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I've just delete the default text from the home page but i would like to change the general look and layout of the whole page, I would like to be able to add some images and some flash content etc.

 

How do i go about doing this.

 

Also if i want to move the categories from the left side to the right side do i simple copy the text from column_left to the column_right.php file

 

Many thanks

Dave

Install the STS templating system found in the contributions section if you have a clean installation

 

This will allow you to design your store

For adding your flash contents / images:

1- copy your .swf and .jpg files to catalog/images directory

2- open catalog/includes/header.php

look for code:

<table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
 <tr class="header">
<td valign="middle" height="100"><?php echo '<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT) . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'oscommerce.gif', 'osCommerce') . '</a>'; ?></td>

enter your picture or .swf movie name in the above code like 'your_picture.jpg'

 

2- For moving categories and other boxes from left to right:

open column_left.php

copy this line for categories:

include(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'categories.php');

comment it over here like //include(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'categories.php');

now add the same line of code anywhere in the column_right.php.

Do the same procedure for other boxes.

You need to ftp to your site and as I understand it you need to upload the files from the sts contribution overwriting the files on your site

 

I have never used it but if you read the instructions that come with the contribution it will reveal all ;)

 

Good luck
