Changing Templates? Installing Add-Ons? Wordpress?

Recommended Posts

Maybe I'm just not looking in the right places, but the documentation I saw on the website was not helpful. It doesn't tell me how to install add-ons or change the template. I also wanted to integrate wordpress with a fresh install of oscommerce. Any ideas how to do that? I developed themes for wordpress, but they have an entire site of documentation and oscommerce is less organized and a little confusing for me. help?

*clarify* How does design for oscommerce work? Wordpress is a basic layout, so is Joomla and a few others. I already tried google and couldn't find anything. Anybody have a rundown of the file outlay oscommerce? What files are active by default?

Click on basics for osc 2.3 design in my signature.

 

As for add-ons they have different installs, so you need to download the wanted add-ons and read the included install instructions for each individual one.

Ensure that you are downloading FULL PACKAGE contributions. Sometimes a contribution has a patch but you should always use the latest FULL PACKAGE, and then apply the patch.

There are OSCommerce plug-ins for Wordpress you can install the usual way in Wordpress. And there have been heroic efforts to integrate Wordpress into OSCommerce (search for 'wordpress' here: http://addons.oscommerce.com )

 

I think the difficulty with both approaches is that into order to read the blog and blog entries, you have to leave the product pages. My thinking is that to use a blog to market a product you have to be able to link directly to the relevant content from the product you are looking at, or link directly to the product you are reading about.

 

The article manager http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/1709 accomplishes this, but the article manager is not a blog readers can post comments on. Facebook makes a plugin that you can add to OSCommerce pages, including the product pages, that lets OSCommerce users leave comments, and those comments of course, also appear on your Facebook page.
