Help with custom design for osCommerce


Recommended Posts



I just recently got osCommerce 2.2 Milestone 2 060817 installed. I have created my own design and need some help as to how use my design instead of the standard osCommerce design.


I want to know which files containing the HTML I need to use and change to incorparate my design without affecting the PHP backend and latest security updates.


Can someone help me through this? Thanks in advance for the help.

At it's most basic level - you basically carve up your design into various sections (header, footer, left column, right column) and then drop these sections into OSC. For example - grab the bit of code on your site that could be called a header and drop that into /includes/header.php.


OSC basically sits inside a big table so it's pretty easy to add stuff over it, below it and to the side of it. I'm sure the STS brigade will be along soon too ;-)

Hi jasonabc,


Thanks for your reply. So just to confirm all I really need to do is modify the HTML in the header, footer, left column, right column sections to use my own design?


Anyone else feel free to give your input.
