Welcome page

12 October 2011 - 10:27 AM

I would like to create a Welcome page, which would be the first to load (I get this done via httpaccess), but I'd like to do this from within CS-Cart and use our slideshow addon block.

I'm trying to ideally add a new tab / page to the block manager - see separate thread.

Add new section/tab to Block Manager

10 October 2011 - 10:25 PM

I would like to create an additional section or tab (not sure of the name) in the block manager, alongside of "All pages", "products", etc, to be called "store".
The reason is that I would like to change the homepage to something more representative, and then to link through to the second page which is the actual "store", with its products etc.
I want to use some of the blocks as its much easier that way.

Now I didnt find any mention of this here in the topic, and when contacting customer service, I got the standard reply that "Modifications to the code.. are not covered by our standard ...." etc

I found the /controllers/admin/block_manager.php, where all the section/tabs are apparently listed, and by adding a new one, I apparently caused an error when one of the arguments was executed in line 154. Doing a text search, I also found empty directories with the same names in my skin directory under /skins/[yourskinname]/blocks/locations for example .... still, all this DYI didnt give any result.

Did anyone try this before? Please help!

Add Wordpress blog into CS-Cart

09 October 2011 - 07:08 PM

I just installed a Wordpress blog into the /blog subfolder on my site, the news items are transferred, I matched the Wordpress CSS to the main site as best as possible .... now the integration.

If I just add a "blog" item into the top menu, linking to /blog, it shows me the FULL Wordpress blog, with the top and left columns disappearing.
If I link this top menu item to a page I created within CS-Cart called "blog", and then try and mess with its HTML code, it all looks just like I want it, except I dont see the actual Wordpress blog inside the central column.

I tried to follow various "integrate your site with Wordpress" tutorials, maybe I'm too tired now to see toe obvious thing.

Does anyone out there have a solution to this / has done this before? Help is greatly appreciated!!!

Sitemap page - change layout

02 May 2011 - 07:45 AM

I have asked the CS-Cart customer service how to change the sitemap page so the links are a bit more organized, i.e if you look at http://www.filigreestreet.com/sitemap, the "Information" section which was there before, is on the left hand side, whereas all links I added are in a column on the right. Its fine, but I'd like to use the page better and have some of the links I added on the left.

I think this is governed by view.tpl - how similar is the TPL format to HTML?

Did anyone tinker with the layout of this page and can share their experiences?

How to add previous / next arrows to product view?

13 April 2011 - 06:39 AM

Does anyone know how I could add simple "previous" and "next" links to every product page, so our customers would not have to go back every time they click on a product back to the listing, only to click again etc?

Thank you very much in advance!
