That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer. I'll do some research and get back to you if I find an good answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you help..

Hi... I'm eavesdropping......

I've built my iPage site in HTML using my own styles, images, etc, and would like to match the osCommerce shell to my design. I've had some success so far, but am getting stuck with the php code. For example, I have a main top navigation and a secondary navigation (at the left) that corresponds to each button in the top. I think I can probably handle linking the top buttons to the highest level "Category" links created through the Admin section, but can anyone help me recode the "categories" box (left nav) to be a <UL> and not a nested table? And does anyone know how to hide the first-level categories in that list and only show the secondary categories when I get to that page? Make sense at all?.

Any advice/input would be greatly appreciated..

How exactly do I access and edit the stylesheet file?..

Comment #3

Just as an update, I figured out how to access, the stylesheet manager, but how do I get a background that I want onto it? And special Module styles, etc?..

Comment #4

Anyone know how I would go about uploading a background to the site?..

Comment #5

The easiest way to add a background image to the iPage site is using the stylesheet file. Just edit the "BODY" tag by changing the "background" property to:.

"background: *whatever color* url(*whatever url for image*);.

Example:.

BODY {.

Background: #ffffff url("images/arrow_green.gif");.

Color: #000000;.

Margin: 0px;.

}.

For more information on css attributes, you can check out microsoft's site:.

The right syntax to add background on css is.

Background-image = background-image: url(path of your image/image.gif) ;.

I suggest you to read about some css tutorials ,will save your time ..

Apparently, you should also add:.

Layer-background-image:url(yourfilename.gif);.

This gives extra Netscape support..

And to add a background color, do not use:.

Background:#ffffff;.

Use:.

Background-color:#ffffff;.

Sorry to sound bossy or anything lol, it's just some of these are sloppy coding that in later browser editions will probably not work...

"How to" would depend on what changes you want to make, and the overall design you want to end up with. To start, you can change the various colors used throughout the iPage site by editing the stylesheet.css file. There are contributions that you can use to customize the look of the infoboxes. A background image can be added to the "body" style to put a background image on the pages..

Start with changing the colors in the stylesheet, then move on to other changes you want to make. Without knowing what design you want to end up with, it's difficult to give specific advice on this subject...
