Default Add custom "boxes" to sidebar

Looking to switch from an open-source cart that allows you to make your own "boxes" for the sidebar with text, links, etc. in them. Didn't find anything through google for this. For example, adding links or graphics (like a facebook badge, etc.) to the sidebar.

I have the free trial and have looked at the sidebar.tpl (I think that's the name) file, but a quick test by adding some HTML didn't work.

Is this easily possible?

Thanks!

It is a matter of editing proper X-Cart template file as you figured out already. X-Cart design is 100% template based. To figure out what template file to edit I advise you to use "debug console" - http://help.qtmsoft.com/index.php?title=X-Cart:Editing_Skin_Files#Using_Debugging_Console

It works when you start "Webmaster mode", too (see http://help.qtmsoft.com/index.php?title=X-Cart:Customizing_storefront#Using_Webmaster_mode)

I posted a couple of video links in your another thread recently. You can see how it works in v4.4.x there.

Also, you are welcome to contact us with any questions!
