If you have visited the Rattrap Productions website, you will have seen that we have a new shopping cart up. Much more sophisticated and so on with all kinds of bells and whistles.


The site is created with .php and .css files and some of the minor things I would like to do are beyond my current technical know how (I can do HTML). Does anyone have any suggestions on where to look on the web or a good resource to help me change the look of the site. Basically I want to insert some graphics in place of text links (logos) and add links back to the main web pages for the different games.

Any help or even a map to the right place to look would be appreciated.

there should be documents on your webcarts website in the support or forums section

oscommerce has worked pretty well for us.

If you are working with the options, osC can be a major pain. If you want a particular order with the available options, and make one mistake, you are totally screwed. Otherwise, it's a great system.

On topic, you won't need to touch the .css-files. But if it is a php system, you should be able to use html within the text, e. g. the <a href> tag should work. The php interpreter will translate it into a link. At least it does with osCommerce. It might work for you. But then, I am no expert.

I don't know enough about shopping cart programs in general or yours specifically to give any advice. You might check and see if the publishers of the software have a forum, a lot of times you can get good advice from other users of the software.

For PHP in general there is the php manual – not really a how to, but an invaluable reference:

PHP Freaks has a lot of tutorials and how-tos – some are easier to follow then others:
