ADDING A SIDE BOX WITH CUSTOM LINKS

Hi everyone,

I have numerous problems with configuring CC3 to look and function the way I want, but I will start with SIDEBOXES and LINKS...

1. How do i create a new empty sidebox?

2. How do I create a link to another website, or another file within it?

Bear in mind I have no clue what I'm doing, except to do all the basic stuff to get the application up and running to a fashion.

I have spent days looking through the file structures of CC3 to try to understand the logics behind them, and looking at the various comments on this forum, and I have to say it scares the hell out of me, almost to the point of saying to hell with it, I'll abandon it and try something else!

It makes little sense to me, and the way one config file links to another, and that one to yet another, just to change one small aspect is confusing to say the least. PLEASE HELP!!

I would like to be able to add another sidebox, on the left or right hand side in which I can place links to open other pages, images or websites as I intend to link two other sites to it. Right now, I can't get a link to work, nevermind create a new sidebox..!

Thanks in advance..

Read plinned post http://www.cubecart.com/site/forums/index....showtopic=12521 for all the info on adding boxes. It gives the complete code as well as an example for putting in links and images.

Basically you would be customizing a box like below to add it to your page in your index.tpl file in your skins folder. Place it as per your sites layout.

<div class="boxTitleRight">Your Text</div>

<div class="boxContentLeft">

<div align="center"><img src="folder/yourpicture.jpg" width="88" height="86"> </div>

<div align="center"><a href="http://www.yourlink.com" class="txtDefault" style="font-size: 70%;">Your Link Text</a>

</div>

<border="0" >

</div>

<div class="boxFootRight">Your Text</div>

You can play with it like omitting the picture or texts as you wish or change font sizes and picture size.

Here's a very simple side box code:

<div class="boxTitleRight">Your head-line</div>

<div class="boxContentLeft">

Use the code you wish to add

<border="0" >

</div>

<div class="boxFootRight"> </div>

Put the title you want in place of 'Your head-line' and the code or text or image in place of 'Use the code you wish to add'. Paste this code into your skins/your skin/styleTemplates/global/index.tpl file anywhere you want the box to appear.
