Main Categories on Front page

Hey everyone. I installed the Main Categories on Front Page for my website. You can see it here:

FURRY FAMILY SUPPLIES

 

But i need to figure out how to change the size parameters for the images. they are WAY too small, and square - and i need them to be rectangular.. If you actually click on the birds category, you will see the look i am going for. I want those on my main page!

 

I really hope someone can give me a hand. I dont think i can change it in the admin section under images because it might mess with my subcategories images.

 

ANY help is much appreciated.

A great place for newbies to start

HOWEVER, you can visit my blog (go to my profile to see it) and post a question there, i will find time to get back and answer you

You need to change the small image width and height settings in admin. That will not cahnge your category image sizes. It will change the size displayed on the products page though, in case that is a problem.

In admin, change the Subcategory Image Height and Subcategory Image Width to what you want.

I'm sorry. You said the images on the home page and when I looked the ones in the new products box were (are) very small so I assumed that is what you were referring to.

I think that what you are referring to is the info box background, which is set in the stylesheet.css file

yes.. I know. I was just saying that as a design standpoint to start making it look RIGHT. I just am LOVING the fact that, prior to this i had no php experience, i am able to do soo much with this shopping cart.. now, i know it is not nearly as beautiful as some of the sites around here.. Not even CLOSE, but i am doing more by myself (without a programmer i mean) than i ever thought possible.

 

I;m SOOOO glad i did not get a template! I have a feeling with some more practice, i can make an AWESOME site. THANKS GUYS!
