Got a quick question: Domain parking and auctions at iPage (be aware!!!)? Hoping for any answer. Another question... H again. I just wanted to know of there is an easy way to have the margins on my pages be white. Also, I added table border that only shows up on the front page and categories pages. Can I add them to the whole site?? Last question....

Can I get them to go over the picture??.

You can see my iPage site here....

Good question... I dunno what is the answer to that question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I discover an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can help you..

Comment #1

Ok...I did that...and it shows up, but it's on top of the pic I put up initially. The 1st one I renamed oscommerce.gif so it would replace the old one. Can I hide that one or delete it somehow??..

Comment #2

From the same file remove piece of code:.

<?php echo '<a href="'tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT)'">'tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES'oscommerce.gif', 'osCommerce')'</a>'; ?>.

That will do.....

<div align="center"><img src="http://www.sarasmysticaltreasures.com/commerce/images/oscommerce.gif" width="1000" height="50">.

</div>.

<table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">.

<tr class="header">.

<td valign="middle"><a href="http://sarasmysticaltreasures.com/commerce/index.php?osCsid=6528dba2f0e0e2be09e15c15ed85f997"><img src="images/oscommerce.gif" border="0" alt="osCommerce" title=" osCommerce " width="1000" height="50"></a></td>.

Looking at the underlying source code it is asked for twice. Within the header I think..

Just delete the code for the first banner you had there..

Comment #6

Personally I would ditch them altogether..

You have the relevant links in the breadcrumbs and they seem slightly out of place within your store design - only my opinion though...

Comment #7

I would like to do that actually. But what do I erase???.

Is it this???.

<td align="right" valign="bottom"><?php echo '<a href="'tep_href_link(FILENAME_ACCOUNT, '', 'SSL')'">'tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES'header_account.gif', HEADER_TITLE_MY_ACCOUNT)'</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="'tep_href_link(FILENAME_SHOPPING_CART)'">'tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES'header_cart.gif', HEADER_TITLE_CART_CONTENTS)'</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="'tep_href_link(FILENAME_CHECKOUT_SHIPPING, '', 'SSL')'">'tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES'header_checkout.gif', HEADER_TITLE_CHECKOUT)'</a>'; ?>&nbsp;&nbsp;</td>..

Comment #8

This includes the closing <tr> and <table> tags as they are not required..

Save your original header just in-case all goes belly up..

Comment #11

I'm the only one doing it. I know basic html/css/javascript ..... but php is new to me. So everything you see is my work. The docs aren't much help and I've been looking up my questions instead of asking them. Now I feel like I need more customized answers so I signed up and here I am!..

Comment #12

To get rid of the image - download pixel_trans.gif from your images directory..

Rename it table_background_default.gif and upload it back to the same dir..

The reference to what's new, from memory, may either be in index.php or in your admin area under catalog/define mainpage..

Ok...maybe I'm dumb, but how do I get the pic file pixel_trans.gif ?? I couldn't "Save Target As" so how do I get it??..

Comment #14

H again. I just wanted to know of there is an easy way to have the margins on my pages be white. Also, I added table border that only shows up on the front page and categories pages. Can I add them to the whole site?? Last question.... I added a picture to the top of my page, but it moved the 3 icons (account, cart, checkout) over to the right. Can I get them to go over the picture??.

Comment #15

I dont know what would be difficult coding for you but I will try to help..

Go to folder INCLUDES , backup file header.php ( in case something went wrong)..

Now edit this file like this:.

After a piece of code:.

 if ($messageStack->size('header') > 0) {.

   echo $messageStack->output('header');.

 }.

?>.

Insert code:.

<div align="center"><img src="../images/my_big_logo.gif" width="60" height="60">.

</div>.

Now upload your picture (the top one) to folder IMAGES..

Remember that parts of new code:.

1.my_big_logo.gif should be actual name of picture file.

2.width="60" it doesnt have to be "60" , it has to be actual width of your picture.

3.height="60" same as over.

IF SOMETHING WENT WRONG just download backed up file header.php to INCLUDES.

I hope I managed to help you, I now it's coding but it worths to try..

Greets.
