bkellum Posted March 3, 2009 Share Posted March 3, 2009 ok, i got STS working finally..... now i am having trouble using the osCommerce templates that i have downloaded. Where do the template files need to go exactly? I have tried putting the osc template folder in sts_templates folder and selecting it from admin console but its a no go. any help would be great. is development with OSC dying? is there something better that I should know about? Trav, STS allows you to use any standard web template as a starting point for your template to be used in osCommerce. If I am understanding you correctly, you purchased a so called "osCommerce template". Just so you know, osC does not have a template system "out-of-the-box". What this means is, the template you purchased is actually an entire osCommerce set of files that were intended to be installed on your web host site. The problem with this is that you have no idea what kind of shape the code is in or if it will even function at all (do a search for all of the horror stories of purchased osCommerce templates). This is where STS can help you but you will need to take a couple of extra steps to get your purchased template to work with the latest osCommerce code. I wrote a step by step tutorial on how to convert your purchased template into a STS template that you would then be able to use with the most recent version of osCommerce.
