sublayouts/products.php - Is there a better way?
« on: September 10, 2015, 21:30:50 pm »

I want to have a product summary display that has the product image thumbnail on the left and product name, price and add to cart bar on the right. To achieve what I have so far I created an override for sublayouts/products that put the image thumbnail in a div width = 30% and the product info in a div width = 70%, float = right and margin-top = -100px. While it works I am looking for recommendations for a better way.

Please take a look at and respond with your recommendations.

Thank you!

float both left and loose the weird -100 margin

but your really handicapping yourself with an articrap template

also why only 900px wide?
