  1. Yes, its very easy to change the backgrounds. Just name the image you want the same as the file in the folder and upload it over the stock image. The css coding will fill the whole page with the image no matter what the screen size but you do not want to use a picture that is too small as it will not look very good. Too big an image can take a long time to load the page. This is not a foundation based skin so there is no equalizer. I do not care for the equalizer personally and that is why I cam up with this skin design. Most people use images that are all the same size anyways so it is not a problem for most.
  2. I have a new skin I have been working on that has just been added to the Extension Marketplace. You can change the skin at the bottom of the page to see all the variations and my other skin 'Lingerie' that is available for Free in the Marketplace as well. Hope you like Not a live store! Do not try to order things... http://www.cnkapparel.com/skins/
  3. I am also on Hostgater and have run into this problem with my site as well. I was able to delete the file and re upload it to regain ownership. Not sure what is going on with them but HG is not what it once was, that's for sure! Mine were css files so not sure how those would have gotten exploited....
  4. When I hit submit all I get is the "whoops, something went wrong" message. I have tried every possible variation I can think of and double checked the zip file a dozen times.
  5. I have been trying to get a new skin uploaded to the extension market place but something is not working. It keep saying "Oops, something went wrong" I have tried everything I can think of. Done it as free, commercial, changed the zip file name, and used different pictures. No idea what is causing the problem. Any chance someone can take a look at that to see what the issue is? Skin name is Urban Combo if that helps Bill
  6. Ok, assuming everything is stock here is what should work. in the template folder open up main.php. Find this code at line 60 <div class="container" id="container"> <div class="row" id="logo"> <div class="u12"><a href="{$STORE_URL}"><img src="{$STORE_LOGO}" alt="{$META_TITLE}" /></a></div> </div> <div class="row" id="documents"> <div class="u12"> {$SITE_DOCS} </div> </div>Replace it with this <div class="topcontainer" id="topcontainer"> <div class="row" id="logo"> <div class="u12"><a href="{$STORE_URL}"><img src="{$STORE_LOGO}" alt="{$META_TITLE}" /></a></div> </div> <div class="row" id="documents"> <div class="u12"> {$SITE_DOCS} </div> </div></div> <div class="container" id="container">Then open up the style folder and open file "blue.css". At line 88 add this code #topcontainer ( background: transparent;}Technically you do not "need" that but if you ever what to change the color there that is where you will do it. Now open file "common.css" and find the layout section (line 501). Add this code directly above where you see #container { #topcontainer{ margin-top:20px; margin-bottom:20px; padding:0; -moz-border-radius:8px; -webkit-border-radius:8px; border-radius:8px; }Now open the file "grid.css". At line 41, just before .container { ad this code .topcontainer { width: 960px; margin: 0 auto; } There are three more places in that file that you will have to add the class .topcontainer. Find where you see .container under "wide", "narrow", and "mobile" and copy it along everything within it's brackets { }. Then paste it above the .container and change the copied class it .topcontainer. Does that make sense? I can spell it all out but it's a lot of code and is pretty simple to do really. Just amek sure there is a copy of the .container class info renamed to .topcontainer for each time it is listed on that page Good luck and let me know how it works out.
  7. That is formatted within the "container" id of the css in the blue.css file. That is what makes the whole body of the site white. To separate that out you will have to do some code big changes to the skin. I'll see if I can work on a fix for you and post it as soon as it's ready. Do you just want it blank or a certain color? Is the skin stock or modified? Have you changed the background or anything else? Bill
  8. Sorry, I was replying to bsmither on the _MACOSX files. I will include the instruction html file and upload that to the marketplace to see if that works. Don't see why not...
  9. I have tested this skin on 5 different sites and three different computers to make sure it was ready. Glad to hear it sounds like I didn't miss something then. I even did a lightning install on a different site after I uploaded it and that worked fine too. That's is not to say that there aren't bugs. There are always bugs! Thanks for the feedback so far. I appreciate it. I have three more skins I'm working on as well. Anything I learn here will help fix those skins too.
  10. I was looking to see how other skins were formatted and kept seeing those files. Was not sure if they were required for cross compatibility or not.
  11. None of the skins comes with instructions that I have found. I was trying to figure out how to include it but with the auto install that makes it tough I think. Again, new to this whole thing.... If I can figure that out I'll get them in there for sure. I'm one of those people who needs all the help I can get so I understand how important they are. I was looking at your site and the only thing that I see that could be an issue was the liquid slider. I had a heck of a time with several sliders. Finally just went with the BX Slider from the foundation skin. If you are still have trouble I can send you a slightly stripped down main.php file that might take out any javascript conflicts. If anyone has an answer to the _MACOSX files and how to set those up I'd love to have that info. PC guy so no idea how to setup mac stuff.
  12. Thanks for the heads up on the link issue. That is fixed now. The only reason I can think of that you would get a blank homepage would be if the section name is not called "home" for some reason. Is the page completely blank or is there just a header and background? Can you send me a link to the page?
  13. Trial and error I think I figured it out. It's actually much simpler than I was making it out to be. Golden Rule #162 - If there are no instructions it's probably not that hard to figure out... The skin is posted in the Extension Market place now. https://www.cubecart.com/extensions/skins/lingerie-skin
  14. I have setup the seller login and I have gotten to the page where I need to upload the file and put all the info in. I just need to know the exact way the skin has to be formatted so that it can be uploaded. I do not know what has to be done with the _MACOSX folder and stuff like that. I can't find that info anywhere...
  15. I have my new skin all ready to go. I am working on getting it all ready to upload to the extension marketplace (available for free) but I have no idea how it has to be laid out to make this work. What folder structure is needed inside the zip file? I looked at a few skins to see how they were laid out but still I'm not sure what is required. Any help? What is required?
  16. Which site? I am working on two and was just updating the http://bill-cooke.com/ccskins site this morning. The other one is more fun to look at but it gets confusing switching back and forth sometimes so I was keeping it simple for this test. The reason it was in there twice was because I'm an idiot. It should have said sf-mobile for the second one. The code is correct, my post was wrong I have put the skin in a zip file if you would be interested in downloading it. That may help a lot here. Do not want to but that out on the forum just yet so maybe we can send it privately?
  17. So close but the css info is getting all jumbled up. Why does it not work to change <ul class="sf-menu sf-vertical sf-menu"> to <div class="sf-menu sf-vertical sf-menu"> <ul> If that works for the other menu why not this one? The homepage is still pulling up the superfish menu css info for some reason. I moved it all to a folder called 'new' in the template, not in a css or js folder. That works fine on every other page so I know it's finding it but it's also stepping on the menu on the home page.
  18. Just tried it and still does not work once I turned the caching functions back on in gui.class.php. The problem isn't the css info I guess. It seems to be the cache file is for box.navigation.php only. When it tries to pull up box.hnav.php it sees nothing. There seems to be a need for a second cache file just for box.hnav.php. I have tried to copy the original part of the gui.class.php code that creates that cache file and change the names but it does not work for me. Remember, monkey with a violin... Here is where I have commented out the cache functions and it works just fine. /** * Display navigation box */ private function _displayNavigation() { $cache_id = 'html.'.$this->_skin.'.menu.'.$GLOBALS['language']->current(); $serialize = false; /* if (($content = $GLOBALS['cache']->read($cache_id,$serialize)) == false) { */ //Get the navigation tree data $tree_data = $GLOBALS['catalogue']->getCategoryTree(); //Make the navigation tree $navigation_tree = $this->_makeTree($tree_data); $GLOBALS['smarty']->assign('NAVIGATION_TREE', $navigation_tree); //Check for sales $GLOBALS['smarty']->assign('CTRL_SALE', $GLOBALS['config']->get('config', 'catalogue_sale_mode')); //Check for gift certs $gc_status = $GLOBALS['config']->get('gift_certs','status'); if ($gc_status=='1') { $GLOBALS['smarty']->assign('CTRL_CERTIFICATES', true); } else { $GLOBALS['smarty']->assign('CTRL_CERTIFICATES', false); } $url = array ( 'saleitems' => $GLOBALS['seo']->buildURL('saleitems'), 'certificates' => $GLOBALS['seo']->buildURL('certificates') ); $GLOBALS['smarty']->assign('URL', $url); //Fetch the navigation so we can cache it foreach ($GLOBALS['hooks']->load('class.gui.display_navigation.pre_cache') as $hook) include $hook; $content = $GLOBALS['smarty']->fetch('templates/box.navigation.php'); $content = str_replace('/index.php/', '/', $content); /* $GLOBALS['cache']->write($content, $cache_id, '', $serialize); } */ foreach ($GLOBALS['hooks']->load('class.gui.display_navigation') as $hook) include $hook; //Send it to the main template $GLOBALS['smarty']->assign('CATEGORIES', $content); }
  19. I see what you are doing there. I'll give that a try and let you know how it works. Alternatively, couldn't I just change the vertical navigation file from <ul class="sf-menu sf-vertical sf-mobile">to <div class="sf-menu sf-vertical sf-mobile"> and then just use the same <ul> for each menu just to pull the data? Nope, just tried that. TOO easy... I'll try you're suggestion and see what happens. Let you know once I get it up and running, or not.
  20. That is the problem. They are identical. The only difference is the <ul class=""> I have tried to read the tutorial about mods and hooks but it's so basic it was no help in this case. Honestly I have no idea how they work or what to do with them. My specialty is graphics and layout. Coding is not my strong suit but I try. Sadly, it's like teaching violin to a monkey. You might get him to hold it and move the bow but he has no idea why... OK, I'm not that hopeless but I do get lost pretty quickly in the code.
  21. I have been playing with gui.class.php with little luck so far. I see how it works but haven't hit the right code to give each menu it's own identity. If I comment out the caching functions I do get it to work. The problem with that is trying to make this skin so it can be easily installed by anyone and having to make changes to the base code like that. So, what you described does put something in the box.hnav.php file to show after a page refresh but it is showing the contents of box.navigation.php, not the actual categories. It is caching the contents of box.navigation.php, not the actual list of categories. There needs to be a second cache event that takes the contents of box.hnav.php and stores those as something else. If there was a way to make a plugin mod that would change the gui.class.php file automatically that would be ideal. A guy can dream, right?
  22. Maybe there is a simpler solution to this and that is to just use the horizontal nav menu on all pages. That seems to work I think. I hate giving up but I really hate to get stuck on one problem and stop all other progress. Maybe once I learn a bit more about hooks and such I can build a mod that will allow this but until then it's just too hard. I REALLY miss CC4! and carburetors and land lines and..... Progress has it's downsides I guess.
  23. I'm sorry, I guess I do not understand what you are asking. I have already posted to code in box.hnav.php and just explained what I was trying to do. It is populated by the same thing as box.navigation.php, whatever that is.
  24. I was trying to reuse $NAVIGATION_TREE and whatever makes that work (elements.navigation_tree.php) for both menus. I almost got away with it too! 'Til that meddling cache got in the way! (sorry scooby doo flashbacks). I really wanted to be able to do this just as a skin without any big mods to the core code. That is looking less likely as this goes on.
  25. 8afd2.html.Lingerie.menu.en-GB.cache is actually the file in the cache folder that is causing the problem. Delete that and you get one normal page load. Here is the content of that file -- CubeCart Cache Split -- <div id="navigation"> <div id="box-title"> <h3 id="navigation-toggle">Shop by Category</h3> </div> <ul class="sf-menu sf-vertical sf-mobile"> <li> <a href="http://www.bill-cooke.com/ccskins/test-category.html" title="Test Category">Test Category</a> </li> <li><a href="http://www.bill-cooke.com/ccskins/sale-items.html" title="Sale Items"><span class="icon icon-tag"></span> Sale Items</a></li> </ul> </div>
