Download OSC and install as per instruction. Add any mods/contributions (see link on top of forum page) you want - like the site you mentioned - more than likely added BTS-Basic Template System or simular mod.


Read up on CSS then go to town...


the Wiki Docs site (see link on top of forum page) is also a good place to go also.


Good Luck.

will the link posted above allow me to start getting a website like


Since that's an osCommerce-based site then the answer is Yes. You will need to do some changes to the basic out-of-the-box osCommerce to get it to look like that. And you probably don't want it to look exactly like somebody else's store anyway.


Take a look at some of the live shops or google for "oscommerce" to get some ideas of what you can do.
