Luke, please use Debug Console to find proper tpl files in X-Cart.

| tried to include a header/footer using the smarty tags (worked) but when I edited the template "service_css.tpl" it shows in the source but the images don't seem to be linking (can you see whats wrong?)

If you created a new Skin called "Island_Bangles" how come I still see "Light & Lucid 2-column"?

Oh my bad you copied the files of "Light & Lucid 2-column" to you "Island_Bangles" skin.

And you created a new css file in /island_bangles/css/style.css - I think you should use the existing one in your skin folder island_bangles/css/altskin.css

Or I think you should add the css file in service_head.tpl

ok, so your saying to add my styles (used in http://fixmysite.us/island_bangles/) to the file island_bangles/css/altskin.css? (Do I leave the current styles in there?)

NVM So it would be better to simply link the stylesheet in service_head.tpl?

first try to place in service_head.tpl if not then move it to island_bangles/css/altskin.css

Make sure you have backup

ok, tried to edit the tpl file, but it doesn't seem to work (maybe something in that altskin.css file is overwriting it?
