This is where you can find a range of downloads for your existing Ecommerce Template store. If you are not currently using Ecommerce Templates then you might want to check out our shopping cart software for Dreamweaver, WordPress, CSS and Responsive Design layouts as well as our design your own Generic version.
Consisting of nine chapters we've compiled a downloadable user manual - you can either view the content online by selecting the "Open PDF File" icon or download the PDF file by selecting "Download ZIP file" for printing and viewing offline. If you have just purchased the software, you will need the User Manual Version 6.6.
In Version 6.5 we introduced the css based shopping cart and search layout. We also made the forms on the following pages css based, affiliates, client login, donations, gift certificates, orders status and tracking. It means that you will need this download as it contains a file called ectcart.css which provides all the css formatting for the various checkout steps, search form and aforementioned pages.
All you need to do is download the zip file, unzip it and upload the folder /css/ to your store root.
On your store pages add this line somewhere before the closing </head> tag
<link href="css/ectcart.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
Wordpress users should add the line to header.php somewhere before the closing </head> tag.
Please note that from Version 6.6 the file ectcart.css is included with the updater itself and we suggest adding the above line to all your store pages as it is now required for features like the mini login or reCaptcha display. Please read our forum post before making any changes to the css.
The dynamic spry tabs allow you to add dynamic content to the product detail page by showing off your product descriptions in tabbed content that you users can access as they choose. You will need to follow the set up instructions here after downloading one of the following files.
The HTML editor is a wysiwyg interface used in the control panel to simplify the HTML formatting of product descriptions, email messaging, content management system etc.
To enable the CK Editor you will need this addition to includes.asp
and for the PHP version in includes.php
Version 6.2 is required to use the CK Editor...more details
If you are using the ckeditor copy the /ckeditor/ directory to your vsadmin folder
All the stores come with "buy" and "checkout" buttons but we thought you'd like to have more to choose from. You can download 10 sets here, they are in .gif and .png format. Here's a small selection of what you get:
The product rating feature comes with default graphics called reviewcart.gif, reviewcarthg and reviewcartg.gif for the full image, half image and dimmed image. These should be placed in your main images folder. You can make your own but we have provided you with some here that you can use if you prefer. These are just a sample of what's available in the zip file.
In version 5.6.0 we added the ability to show ratings on the products page with a link to the full reviews on the product details page. The graphics here are smaller and called sreviewcart.gif, sreviewcarthg and sreviewcartg.gif for the full image, half image and dimmed image. These should also be placed in your main images folder.
In Version 6.2 we introduced the ability to lay out the category, product and product detail pages without the use of tables. These pages can now be 100% css based giving greater flexibility over the styling and formatting. The download comes with three sample css files (one responsive design example) along with instructions and screen shots. There are also blank css files if you want to start with the classes and add your own formatting.
To turn on this feature you will need to be running a minimum of Version 6.2 and add the following to vsadmin/includes.asp
The new classes are outlined in the css layouts help file.
Image sliders allow you to showcase products and services through images and text. As the images slide in they take up a minimum amount of space and will catch the eye of your visitors with the subtle horizontal movement.
The image slider will adapt to different browser window sizes and devices so there is no need to make multiple images for multiple resolutions so will work well with responsive designs.
The biggest difference to other responsive slider plug ins is the file size (1kb minified and gzipped) and that this one doesn't try to do everything. Responsive Slides has basically two different modes: Either it automatically fades the images, or operates as a responsive image container with pagination and/or navigation to fade between slides.
Using our custom payment provider option in the Payment Providers Admin page you can hook up with the companies listed below. You can also use a second "email type" set up that allows you to distinguish between manual payment methods.
We have created a script that will update your database product and / or category ordering. You can set your product ordering by product name, id, sales quantity price and so on. Probably the most interesting of these is the ordering by sales quantity so you can put your best selling products first.
You can set the category ordering alphabetically ascending and descending which can be useful for those that have many categories and don't want to set the ordering manually.
You can also use this script to split the name in the orders and customer address table into first name and last name or to combine the first name and last name into a full name. This is for use in conjunction with the asp parameter / php parameter
The PHP edit country names utility will allow you to edit the names of the countries that appear in your admin and checkout.
Once you have finished with the script, make sure you delete it from your site.
We are producing a series of plugins for the WordPress version of Ecommerce Templates shopping cart software.These add extra functionality to the WordPress integration and can only be used with the Ecommerce Templates shopping cart. Full details can be found on our WordPress plugins overview page.
