I have an existing catalog site I built using Rapidweaver. I've installed zen cart 1.3.7 on my server. I bought the book (building an online store the zen way). Now, after skimming the book, and beginning to personalize the administration function, I'm beginning to wonder if I've fundamentally misunderstood what I can do with zen cart.
What I would LIKE to do is to retain my existing site, but on the product detail page, have a 'buy' button that would take the customer to a page with the look and feel of the rest of my site, but with shopping cart functionality provided by zen cart.
It now appears to me, from skimming the zen cart manual, that I can only customize the standard zen cart template to create an entire site that resembles the site I have already built, rather than integrating the cart functionality with my existing site.
Am I hopelessly confused about this?
I'm sure I've seen other sites based on what are definitely Rapidweaver templates, that have the zen cart functionality within the Rapidweaver template.
Thanks for any input.
