Styling in eCart 6

Styling in eCart 6

I've been using eCart since the very first version and updated to v6 once it was released. There are a lot of improvements and good features but I'm finding integrating the checkout into an existing site design a lot harder.

The inclusion of the billing details on the page with jQuery to make it appear and disappear is good but I just can't get it to fit my site's design. The site is built using the 12-grid system and I only want the checkout to appear in the left 8 columns but the forms seem to be wider and I can't see how I can change that. I used the Checkout Wizard to make the page and selected the unstyled option.

Also, I can't get my head around how the billing details are stored and how I integrate it with logins.

At the moment I'm considering going back to v5 as I'm familiar with it and can finish the site very quickly but I thought I'd check with you to see if you can steer me in the right direction.

I'll PM you the URL so you can see what I mean.

Many thanks

Jon

on your page, the css for the checkout form will be set in the following file:
webassist/webassist/forms/fd_newfromblank_default.css

if you want to completely remove the styling, you can delete the reference to that file and create your own css for the checkout form, or you can edit the styles in that css.

I sugest getting familiar with using firebug for css troubleshooting:

adding registration and login to the checkout system is covered in this tutorial:

Sorry, one more quick question.

The cart is displayed at the bottom using something similar to a static plugin:

<div id="cart_wrapper"> <?php echo((isset($WA_confirm_cart))?$WA_confirm_cart->Body:""); ?> </div>

Where is this file? I need to edit that, too.

Thanks again

Jon
