"Add to Cart" and dropdown changes frequently
« on: June 09, 2008, 19:25:08 pm »
Hello, I have another issue with what I am not sure.  I just installed the fresh Joomla Ecommerce pack, and it came with the black skin as default installed.  Sometimes everything is fine, but then there is problems.

For part of it, it will be completely normal, the quantity, and add to cart.  Other times, it will change the style, and have a blew background, and look really tacky.  Anyone know how to fix this?  I included a screenshot of what it looks like when it messes up.

Thanks
-Andre

You just have to work on theme.css until the styling looks right for your Joomla template. That is why the style sheeet is there. A search of the forum will show how others restyled this.

The use of theme & template is covered in the manual:

So why would it show up fine some times, and be different other times?  And it requires modification out of the box?

For you it looks like maybe an installation or path issue, as CSS call is inconsistent.

You do not have to modify anything, but most people do to set the right style for their site.

Is there another look for the add to cart in JAPurity template? I have that blue one all the time.

So what are you saying I need to do exactly to correct this Jenkin?  Upload a new CSS file?  If so, do you know which one I would need to replace?

Just edit the styles for .vmCartContainer in theme.css

This is in /components/com_virtuemart/themes/default/

I am not seeing what I am suppose to change.  I like the style that is shown when int is not blue, but it uses a different button, etc...  The theme.css just lets me change the border and background color.

Also another issue, ive mainly noticed it with the SS Catback Exhaust on my website, but sometimes the add to cart link is way to the right, as if it was in a frame or something.  And you only see the VERY left side of it.  This only happens with the button style I like, not the blue background.

With theme.css and the templates you can change so many things. Like toy can specify your own button images.

The manuay explains how to modify layout.
http://virtuemart.net/documentation/Developer_Manual/Modifying_the_Layout.html#Themes_and_Templates

Frames are not used! so there may be other issues with your Joomla template.
