This sounds just like what I'm looking for....but when I click the attachment link in the above post, I get a "404 - Attachment Not Found" error.

Thanks, this is what I have been looking for.
It will realistically save me days of looking through the Forum.

This is a very nice effort and great help.

Still a bit technical in terms of flow - but there are references throughout that I believe will help even a non-programmer/coder type like me find things a little easier.

If there is to be a future/improved edition - might I suggest more screenshots of both actual code examples and results that can be achieved?  This would also make a great screencast and/or video tutorial series.

Good work Mike, I found a couple of answers here that did not appear on the first 20 pages of this forum...

Macallf, this is exactly what is needed by us new users and I think you have pitched it at just the right level. I was expecting to discover how the templating system worked by becoming a 'detetctive' sniffing out clues and testing theories as I have had to do for many years with other projects, but this provides just the information that is needed.

An excellent foundation - please keep building!

To all who modify or create templates: if you are not using the FIREBUG plugin in Firefox, then take the time to download it now and check it out. There is no faster way to find exactly which CSS tags you need to modify, or to deduce which HTML templates you need to locate and edit. Combined with Mike's guide to templates it is a winning combination. (Please only download from the firefox website for security reasons)

I couldn't agree more, also try the web developer toolbar too.

But I do wish you'd stop calling me Mike!!  :o

The name is Mark and it's clear in my sig!  ;)

Mark, here is a very useful guide. See if it helps your efforts and keep up the good work!

Windows Vista has a Snipping Tool in the Accessories area of the Start Button.

Have you read the manual? http://virtuemart.net/documentation/User_Manual/index.html I did, huh?
