Default Blue skin using CSS/Xhtml Rate Topic   - - - - -

 

Posted 31 January 2007 - 01:22 PM #1

No Affiiliation with the content, I just came across it,
Can't wait to hear of 1.3.5 coming already :D

http://cscart.blogsp...kin-update.html

As of today, CS-Cart has completed a good portion of their Default Blue skin using CSS/Xhtml.

There are approx. 40 tpl files left to go. (over 180 tpl's in a skin).

This new skin will become the default installed skin for CS-Cart v 1.3.5 when that is released.

I've moved on from CS-Cart to WooC******** - If you need anything I can be of little help.

Finally! Let's just hope it doesn't suck and replaced with 1000 nested divs instead. ;)
Marketing tip:

Did you know a targeted e-mail marketing campaign can bring conversion rates up to 3.9%? By using reliable e-mail marketing software you can upsell to existing customers on a tight budget. If you are not using e-mail marketing you are missing out big time. I recommend and use Aweber.

Hello,

just to clarify, XHTML valid skin has not been added with SP3.

It will be released sometime later, however before CS-Cart 1.3.5 release.

Thank you.


This was a comment from the Admin in another thread, but just thought I'd post it here for anyone who is interested. I wonder if we can get a more exact date or perhaps do some browser testing...BETA anyone? :)

I suppose the question is...

Is it a valid xhtml / css skin using tables or have they completely s****ped all of their tables and done it properly..

Nearly every cart on the market that boasts compliant xhtml / css code is still riddled with thousands of tables, and I dont like tables....

One of you must be able to get an answer to this...

Hi SWS, I'm not sure if the new xhtml/css skin is tabless or not yet, guess we'll have to wait and see...

I believe the only table used is for tabular data, inside the product page, in displaying grid type data. As far as I'm told, the rest of the tables are gone.

Hi,

yes tables will be kept in some templates where using divs is less efficient or not usable.

Thanks

I'ld hate to ask a VERY stupid question, but I'm relentless in hoping,

What skin are you doing? and is the brickwork series a possibility in the current pot? (of donations)

Burst my bubble :mad: lol
Yeah I thought as much, I'm thinking that roughly 50% of the forum has default_x installed anyway.

I was thinking to XHTML brickwork_darksteel however I'm still considering it once i've done my www.knoxit.com.au domain.

I guess I should start converting my skin too. I'm 'stuck' in 1.3.3 because of my mods and I wouldn't be able to base it off that skin anyway...

Just where to start is the problem... I have to say I'm still very old school and have never done a design without tables. I rekon I'll end up with loads of nested divs like someone else said! I guess I'll just have to read some tutorials and get to grips with it!

Would it be possible to see some of the code that's in the tpls? I'm really interested in if I should wait and use this as a baseline or just start from scratch. Also, is there a timeline for when the default skin will be released?

Thanks,

B
