The e-commerce.

Where to begin? Please help


Recommended Posts



First of all, I am a complete novice (this is to excuse my questions). I downloaded OScommerce only a week ago and since then I have tried to customize the look of my store. I discovered how to change fonts and background images by changing stylesheet.css and so on. Then I discovered the STS and by reading the introduction, it seems to be easy but I just don't seem to get it. I downloaded and installed the database and now, according to the manual the next step is:"Use style sheet settings or HTML settings to provide a custom look and feel to your site and arrange elements (placeholders) wherever you like them." Can you help, where to start? Are there any other manuals to refer to?


Also, according to the manual, after enabling the sts default module, my shop should look like /catalog/includes/sts_templates/test/sts_template.html, although I think I did everything correctly, the address www.xxx.com/catalog takes you still to the default page. Only when I type www.xxx.com/catalog/includes/sts_templates/test/sts_template.html I see the page with placeholders. Is that because I havent made any changes yet?


Sorry again,

but I bet there are other complete novices who might find it useful :D
