Newbie here. Please help!
I've spent a few days playing in Zen Cart and finally getting a hang of it.
I opted for Zen Cart b/c i'm familiar with formatting layouts using CSS and html editors, but NOT php. Since I'll always be tweaking the site myself, I didn't want to get stuck with OS Commerce, since I don't know how to change layout/design in php. It just looked harder to me. I also know about security issue w/ OSC.
My cousin is helping me and he's very proficient with the OS Commerce interface, not Zen Cart. He played around in Zen Cart and here's what he says:
"....i took a shot at changing the layout system and it appears to be just as tricky as os commerce. because the changes you can make from the admin to the layout are very limited, and don't change the header and stuff like that. so i have to go into the code to change it. so to me there is no real difference between the two, in terms of working with layout. in fact oscommerce would be simpler for me... but if you like zen cart then lets go with it!"
However, I'm still leaning towards Zen Cart.
Can he create the main page in OS Commerce, and then have me import it into Zen Cart? He's going to do some Flash stuff & advanced designing on the main page.
I'd *really* appreciate any and all insight you may have.
Thanks in advance,
