    You do not want to modify any files in /template_default/. What you want to do is copy any file you want to edit into /your_template/, and edit the copy.

    All you really need to edit in template_info.php is your template's name - essentially personalize the info.

    Default Second step in setting up your cart - templates

    With the help of the good people here, I'm well on my way to building my cart and I'm working on adding the content (3400 items or so) daily.

    I have the main page looking like I want (except for the color scheme but I'll tackle that when I get a good CSS editor) but now seem to have a similar issue for the product pages.

    If you go to www.robertensing.com you see that the main page is set to display 3 columns of products. When you select one of the categories in the left column, those products are listed 1 above the other and I would like to have them showing as 3 in a row also.

    I can't find the page to change that setting on. :-(

    Also, is it possible to put a link inside the description? For example, a few items have a picture that shows 2 or 3 different items, each sold seperately but using the same picture. Currently I have "item suchandsuch sold seperately - see item xxx" can I link the xxx directly to the correct item and save the customer having to look for it?


    I also haven't heard back from my post in the IH 2 support forum more than a day ago, is that not monitored anymore?

    Get the Column Layout Grid mod from Downloads.

    You can add a link to the product description, but what you really want is something like the Better Together mod - see testuser's sig for a link to that.

    There is nobody "assigned" to monitor any one thread - if someone who can answer questions wants to monitor one, they can. I believe the IH2 mod author is no longer active, but others sometimes answer.

    The first link in your first post, which you recommend that everyone read, takes you to a page that says:
    Invalid FAQ Item specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the administrator
    Hope this helps.

    help question Re: Second step in setting up your cart - templates

    PLEASE PLUK OUT MY EYES!

    I have been moderately successful at damaging my new installation and am ready to cry. I promise ALL of you that I have read post after post about changing the page title in meta_tags.php and STILL, IE does not change (I know, boo! ie...). I've used dev tools and searched "title" as suggested and, I SEE the original "zen..." commented <//> and mine accepted - BUT THE CONFUNDED THING...doesn't change. I see some changes were successful: copyright notice, more info (tho links dont work), i added header/footer links just to see if I could - not my index.php ovrd tho, that doesn't show.

    I have really put off posting because it just is too easy to be missing it!
    Along my journey i've come up with a few ???s:

    1) Where's MY title?? (oh, you know that one...)
    2) Can there be more that one /CUSTOM folder? and...
    2a) Does /CUSTOM >have to< appear everywhere that classic is?
    My understanding from reading the past 14 hours is "not if I have made no changes"

    I hereby PROMISE to become a valuable member to the zen society in the future as I learn in exchange for a hamburger today...no, that's Wimpy's line, make that HELP today?

    Thanks for your time!

    Yes. It would be a very rare (or badly constructed) site where there wan't.
