Honey,

You can buy a design at a place like www.templatemonster.com, however its just the design, and not integrated into cs cart.

however, a logo, design, and integration, you not going to get a bite for a 100 bucks, thats way too low. (just my opinion).

I know a graphics designer. He charges $125 per 1 icon. He also said you could go to India to get icons for about $25 each.

after searching/reviewing carts for a good month i found that cs cart is the most complete package for the money... hands down.

i agree that this would be nice but it would be very difficult to build a look for every possible solution.

a good look for one company may be dead wrong for another. "more ready skins"
is a very objective thing. one ready skin for one person may be dead wrong for someone else.

i worked in software development in the past and this is the crux when designing software for the masses without getting into custom work which obviously costs out of range of most small business budgets.

i can understand the need for different looks of a cart, but in my opinion i would rather have the team work on the workings of a cart, then the graphics. it is very easy to change, if i can do it and i didnt know the first thing about this code. i didnt do drastic changes mind you but for me getting the cart working was my first priority.

Therefore it would have been nice if layout would be separated from functionality in cs-cart. Theoretically, they are separated, but the "skins" are way too difficult to change. The changes I made to our store at http://www.illusion.no were only possible after I had changed several inline styling, embedded images and all kind of useless code from the default skin. The excessive use of:

<table><tbody><tr><td></td></tr></tbody></table>

that could be replaced by

<div></div>

is just discouraging.

The good news is the version 1.3.5 uses far less tables than 1.3.4 sp3 as I have show here.

The bad news is that all the functionality I struggled to put together and paid a lot of money to get done is all embedded with the style, which shouldn't be the case. Even if we started doing a "migration" from 1.3.4 sp3 to 1.3.5 behind the stage, we are going to have a problem to apply all the modifications being developed and published into 1.3.4 sp3 while we're at it.

Therefore an upgrade is not an option for us. :sigh:

I think modifications should always do a good use of XHMTL and CSS, so the overall design is completely editable globally from the CSS. Transparent gifs used for spacers like "spacer.gif" and "blank.gif", table layout and inline images are techniques from 1998. They can choke the bandwidth of your server alright if you get enough traffic - and that's what we all aim for anyway as more traffic = more sales.

I have written about it before, I think I'll just make it an official rant in the proper forum...

Hi Illusion, can you explain how you got facebook onto the social bookmarks section of your site, I have all the others from a previous tread mod, but would like to add facebook? How did you add it to the code?
Thanks

I did it manually. Added a "facebook.js" based on the "social.js" most people use with cs-cart.

Assuming that you already have the social bookmarking sidebox installed, place this code under the call to "social.js" in "social.tpl":

<div class="margin5pxtop" align="center" style="width: 188px;"><script type="text/javascript" src="{$skin_dir}/scripts/facebook.js">

Then create the "facebook.js" and put it in the folder specified above.

var image_dir="/skins/*yourtheme*/customer/images/social";

function add_tool(icon, url) {
  document.write('<a rel="nofollow" href="' + url + '" title="" target="_new"><img src="' + image_dir + '/' + icon + '.gif" alt="" align="center" border="0" target="_new" /></a>');
}

function add_all() {
  var title = encodeURIComponent(document.title);
  var url = encodeURIComponent(document.URL);

// icon, name, url
	add_tool('facebook_image', 'http://www.facebook.com/share.php?u=' + url + '&title=' + title);
}

add_all();

You'll have to create the image for it as well... In this case, the image name is "facebook_image.gif"

Hope it helps ;)

YES you are right on! .. I've used many other Free and paid Carts before... and CS Cart so far ..is cheaper and pack much more free features ..that normally we would have to build or buy ourselves.
