Hi 

 

this is no problem . You can turn any platform to CS-Cart. Its ruther a matter of extra addon to achieve the same look.

 

We can do almost any platform, also wordpress or joomla+vm

Good to know but I presume where CS Cart themes are still deficient in is in the support for Typography and Menu's that just make your site look so much better. 

Coolbaby by TonyThemes is made for CS Cart but there is a lot I do not like about this particular theme but at least it has this support for typography.

See this image I included

I wish there was an easy way for a noob like me to implement this typography for the theme I use which is the Graceful theme.

Most of modern e-commerce templates are based on Bootstrap 3 and typography is handled by this framework by default. Cs-cart responsive layout is based on bootstrap 2 and converting themes from other systems is painful. That is why I hope that boilerplate project will be polished and soon default theme will be based on it. It would also help to get rid of jquery UI. I believe that this would speed up theme development process and attract more developers to create cs-cart themes.

Jacek, you write "converting themes from other systems/platform is painful". Is that as in very costly process in terms of hours needed to convert and or hiring fees and what about just adding typography to a current bootstrap 2 based theme ?

I do not see us at this point in time postponing with any modifications and wait for the availability for boilerplate template if this also requires to upgrade our store to version beyond V4.3.9. We are on V4.3.8 as we speak.

PS those typographic elements as columns and various other element surely make a CS Cart store more attractive but as just everyone here, the economy is not growing  here for us right now so is our budget not unlimited

All the changs I see in the image you posted above are pure css which are not so hard to do. All you need is a firebug and a minimum knowledge of the div structure n CS-Cart and you can maek it happen.

The structure of CSS in CS Cart is still a book not fully read by me Fotis.

But I am learning step by step.
