    Default Website from scratch

    Hi, is it possible to make a site like this using zen cart?

    http://www.phweb.biz/proofs/jewelrybyvictoria/template

    As you can see, my borders on the left and right have shadings and they are images background. Is it possible to add some <div> to it? Another question is that how do I align the site to the middle, I just started studying the cart software.. here is the link:

    Thank you and hope to get replies from you guys.

    Forget about the center alignment, I have already aligned the site, I just want to know if it's possible to make image borders around the left and right side borders like this one :

    Yeah www.zen-cart.com has image border shadows but it's layout is set to table. Anyone know how to do it in CSS zen cart?

    Take a look at my Test Site to see an implementation of what I believe you are trying to achieve.

    This uses NO tables and is styled entirely with CSS.

    requires adding an additional "wrapper" div.

    I got your idea, so I will make another wrapper div for the shadow. I think I need to study more about using CSS without tables for websites. Thank you!

    You said you already had your shadow image.

    in your stylesheet create a new declaration:

    Code:
    #shadow {
    margin: 0 70px; /* this is based on a page width of 850px so you'll have to adjust the 70px to fit your site */
    background: url(../images/your_image.???);
    }
    Save the file and upload to your server.

    Now in includes/templates/template_default/common/tpl_main_page.php

    Find:

    Code:
    <div id="mainWrapper">
    add the following:
    Code:
    <div id="shadow">
    just above so you'll now have the following:

    Code:
    <div id="shadow">
    
    <div id="mainWrapper">
    Now find:
    Code:
    require($template->get_template_dir('tpl_footer.php',DIR_WS_TEMPLATE, $current_page_base,'common'). '/tpl_footer.php');?>
    </div>
    <!--bof- parse time display -->
    Add the closing </div> just above <!--bof- parse time display --> so you'll now have the following:
    Code:
    require($template->get_template_dir('tpl_footer.php',DIR_WS_TEMPLATE, $current_page_base,'common'). '/tpl_footer.php');?>
    </div>
    </div>
    <!--bof- parse time display -->
    Save the edited file to:
    includes/templates/YOUR_TEMPLATE/common/tpl_main_page.php and upload to your server.

    NB: to my above post - The instructions assume using only one image for the shadow.
