That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I bump into an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could answer your iPage question..

Well a good start would to have a basic understanding of HTML and PHP.

Also check out.

For how to's...

Thanks for the heads up. I do know my way round html, just starting to figure out php (like more able html yeah?) but where do I even input this stuff? Where do I find the stylesheet to customize! sorry folks I am really lost....

Comment #3

I'm guessing you don't know HTML as much as you think you do or should if you want to take on a job like customizing the store front... it's a hug job to completely customize it. the stylesheet should be in the root directory of the store, it's called 'stylesheet.css'. take a look at this page to find most of the info you will need:.

Http://www.oscommerce.info/.

It should explain what each style controls...

Lol... I didn't say I was a html master or anything!! But if it was a case of using html to fix it up like a webpage, I can kinda handle that? lol... but thanks for the reply, I'll look into it.

If you know HTML then I suggest using a template system like STS and BTS to customize your shop. It is easier for people that dont know php...

Comment #6

Hello.

Where do I find these systems? do you know what they are called? thanks..

Comment #7

You need to check here for all the contribs.

Http://www.oscommerc.../contributions/.

You will fnd sts and bts there! if you know html it should be quite simple for you do your own custom shop front..

The instructions in these contribs are also straight forward so I'm sure you will be able to figure it out!.

Download the basic template at diamondsea.com it will give you a good idea where to start...

Thanks!..
