osCommerce

The e-commerce.

An osCommerce face lift.

Howdy all,

 

I'm have a few questions on how to make some small changes to my osCommerce store.

 

#1. The font is so small...is there a way to change this without screwing up the layout.

 

#2. I would like to change the "Home" page to display the various catagories I have as thumbnails and a brief description in the center of the page!

 

#3. I'm not a programmer by any means, but I can learn pretty fast. What books would anyone here recommend to a newbie thats wants to learn how to really get the full potential out of osCommerce without getting lost in technical mumbo jumbo!

 

Thanks to all those who spend the time and effort helping people like me!

in the stylesheet, find this and change the font size:

 

TD.main, P.main {

font-family: Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;

font-size: 11px;

line-height: 1.5;

}

If you say you can't do it, you're only fooling yourself.

my favorite is "PHP and MySQL for dynamic web sties" by Larry Ullman. good reference and easy to read.

 

you want to get the full potential out of osC? probably you'll end up being a programmer by the time you're done. i spent about 6 months lost in the "mumbo jumbo", but now, i think i can call myself a semi-competent PHP programmer.

 

cheers,

rj
