Three weeks down the track and I think I've finished .. the guts and extra mods part anyway!

Tackled the graphics in a small way .. looking for criticism / ideas ... anyone?

Its not live yet .. just filled it up with example catagories.

Heres the site .....

First suggestion.

In the footer.inc file, to the <td> tag that holds the copyright info, add "colspan=\"2\" " [withoput the opning and closing quotes] to the tag.

This will put your footer notice back where it should be.

Second suggestion.

As you said...tackled the graphics in a small way. Well, tackle them a bit more. Work on the rest of the box images so they match your box header.

Next...lose the grey background.

Aren't you afraid that 3 copies of the site is going to make a lot of work for yourself?

Thanks for that..

I've implemented everything you suggested except changing the grey background.

I tried replacing the following in header.inc.php

</head>

<BODY leftmargin="0" topmargin="0" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" bgcolor="<?echo$bg_colour;?>"

with ...

</head>

<BODY leftmargin="0" topmargin="0" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" background="bground.jpg">"

As suggested in your tutorial.

I works .. but when I load the page there is a "> at the very top left of the page which moves the store_logo.gif and everything else down one line.

I thought it might be this ..

<meta http-equiv='Content-Type' content='text/html; charset=<?php echo $charset; ?>'>

The '> .. so I deleted it and the logo moved back up but the background image would not display ... just a plain white b/ground.

Heres the whole file ..

This is wrong ...

It should be

Yes...thats correct, no >"...the body tag is in fact closed after the onload event...by the ?>>

Thanks Twister .. that did it !

I'm mainly a "copy/paster" .. still getting used to all the nuances of html/php.

So what do you think of the background now? .. a bit much?

This is just my test site .. I'm still chopping and fiddling with it.

Thanks again

Right!

Applied changes as per previous critisisms .. still not live but almost.

Is it OK now?

:D

PS ... You might notice in "Links" / "Other Links" there are 2 instances of links to cubecart .. anyone know how to get rid of one of them ? ... The "Manage Links" option in Admin does'nt work. I'm guessing I can do it through "PhpMyAdmin" but not sure how to do it.

Was this a free mod? If so, post your manage links code here. Maybe we can help get you sorted.

Yes it was a free mod .. the file that gets called by "Manage links" is admin/links.php. When I click on Manage Links I just get a blank page.

I worked out how to edit the links through PhpMyAdmin but it would be easier if the "Manage Links" in Admin worked. Adding links is no problem .. just removing them is the problem.

Heres the code ...

I uploaded teh file onto my site and it opens up just fine. Could it be that the link is not pointing to the right place? Make sure your file is in your admin/ directory, and make sure the link is pointing to http://www.yoursite.com/admin/links.php

The links.php is in the right place . This is the address in the address bar ...

http://www.earthbizz.com/store/admin/links.php

But just a blank page ... I dunno. When I view the page source all I get is ...

<html><body></body></html> ... A big empty !!

Don't worry about it .. I'll just edit the links in PhpMyAdmin ... I won't be removing links that often. Only when the Klu Klux Klan or the United Lesbians of the Galaxy link to me! :(

Thanks Booker

Try copying the code from your post above and saving it as a new file on your desktop. Then upload it to your server. I can't see why it would work fine for me but not for you... And I don't even have the mod installed :huh:

Nice.

The live auctions table at the bottom of the page is a little difficult to read though on that background.

OK Twisted .. fixed that ... plus changed the side eBay box to one for future Google ads .

Now it's finished.

(I think !! .. maybe it's NEVER finished! ) .. (except for the Google Ads code .. do that later .. what's the bet I'll have hassles with THAT?)
