Ecommerce Templates Newsletter September 2011

Welcome to the September 2011 Ecommerce Templates newsletter

Welcome to the September edition of the Ecommerce Templates Newsletter where we announce the release of Version 6.1.2 and 6.0.7, along with a round up of recent ECT news and some juicy css tips.

New release – Version 6.1.2 and 6.0.7

These are important releases and we strongly advise everyone to get a copy and update. Apart from a few bug fixes, both updates include an important security fix that everyone really needs to apply.

Updaters as always are available from - it doesn't matter which version you are currently running, you can always update to the latest and greatest without going through all previous versions first.

New template and payment provider news

We have just released a new store design called Virtual Eco. The layout is css based, making it fast loading and extremely flexible design-wise. We're always looking to add new designs so if you have any suggestions for styles you'd like to see, please do contact Andy with your thoughts.

We've added UK payment provider Cardsave to our ever growing list of supported payment providers. They offer very competitive rates and as they are part of the WorldPay group, they're backed by one of the largest players around.

2Checkout have been in touch with us and are offering to waive the $49 set up fee for all ECT users. Just enter promo code "etemplates" into the Promo Code field when registering to take advantage of the offer. 2Checkout is available in 15 languages, supporting 30 currencies in over 200 countries.

CSS tips - rounding the corners

In previous newsletters we've stressed the importance of setting backgrounds for the table backgrounds of pages like the cart, search, order status etc, and we'd like to share an extra tweak we've added.

table.cobtbl {
background-color: #ccc;
border-radius: 5px;
-webkit-border-radius: 5px;
border-radius: 5px;
box-shadow: 1px 1px 3px #666;

The attributes should be quite self-explanatory and you can play around with the values til you get the look and feel you are after.

If you don't see any changes there it may mean you are using IE8 or below but as it degrades so nicely that shouldn't be a problem.

As always, we warmly welcome feedback on any topic covered in the newsletter and suggestions for features you'd like to see in future editions.
