Default Customizing Sportlife Template #39

We are running X-Cart 5 Business (5.1.6) on Unix (Mac OSX 10.9), 8 GB RAM, 250 SSD drive. The machine is dedicated to this one web site.

We licensed the SportLife Template #39. The templates don't seem to come with any manual for customizing. We can't figure out where to look to find the demo images used in the template so that we can replace them.

Also, our logo, which shows up fine in the default install, now has the lower third covers by the menu bar. Our logo needs to be 100 pixels tall, but even at 75 pixels (which begins to disport the logo graphic), the bottom third is still covered by the menu bar.

How do we modify the template so that the mast head is not compromised by the menu bar?

The site is http://worldsbestsportsgear.com.

Thanks in advance.

Looks like some simple CSS changes will save the day.

First you need to increase the overall height of the header:
Code:
#header-area { height: 234px; }

Then scoot the absolutely positioned header-holder element down:
Code:
#header-holder { top: 127px; }

I am also using this template. The demo images are found on your server under banners.

SportLifeSkin\customer\en\images\banners

banner_top_home22.jpg

The banners can be changed with the TRANSLATION tool of all things. Search for the banner and you can change the file, also make it clickable etc.

Pfidy - Thank you for that! Sure wish qualiteam would provide that information with a template purchase.

What about editting text that seems to come built into the front page that doesn't show in the front page window or the footer (even though it looks like footer text)

I think they need to make these templates where the content on the front page is easily changed and that is really being missed right now.

Thanks to all who responded.

We are now trying to eliminate the roll over icons that are redundant to the menu tabs for products. I would like to replace these icons with some copy and an image about who we are.

I would also like to add a line in the masthead, flush right, beneat the phone number/sign in/ register.

Can anyone point me in the direction for these two modifications?

Thanks in advance.

Mitch

Hi Mitch!

1) I am not really sure about what roll over icons you mean. Could you please describe it in more details?
2) You need to add a new template into layout.header.bar view list. More details are here: http://kb.x-cart.com/display/XDD/Step+2+-+applying+design+changes#Step2-applyingdesignchanges-Addingnewtemplatesandwidgets

Tony,

Thank you for your response. If you go to WorldsBestSportsGear.com you see the masthead (with logo), then the product menus. Beneath the menus are some specials and beneath that are the icons that rollover and link to the products like the product menus. I would like to delete these and replace them with some written content and a photo or two.

I figured out how to hide the icons and then added some content to the front page option.

While this mostly resolved our issues. It would be great to have template specific information.

I still want to add a line of text below the phone number and register link in the masthead, but can't figure out where to get in to that.

You can do this according to my previous advice:

<<

Does it work for you and if not, please let me know why?

Tony.
