So I'm apparently a little old-school when it comes to website design :)
I've started getting comments from my core market (millennials...) that they find my site old-fashioned, even though I just recently updated. What they seem to want is what Shopify templated sites look like. I'm definitely not changing platforms -- all of my database info is in ECT going back to 2005 -- but I would like to attract more customers and it sounds like what they want is more eye candy.

Is there a way to work with the ECT templates (I currently use Beauty, though heavily modified) to get that look?
I definitely need more photos on my product pages, for example, and I'd love to do what they've done in "boundless" (but with a line of explanatory text over the image, including product name and price).

Right now, I would just love to change my index page to remove the whitespace to either side of the scrolling images -- that would go a long way on the home page, I think. I need to add more content below it, and I'll be reorganizing the top menus to showcase products, I guess, though it's going to be a slog. I've tried removing the 980px restriction but nothing changes in my page, so I'm not sure what the issue is.

Halp? Thank you!

PS I'm not averse to buying another ECT template, but only if it will allow me to have more graphics on the product pages.

I've been facing the same issue- I don't mind the category view options (besides buttons that don't scale for small screens particularly well) but the product details pane looks dated to me. One option is the fixed product page url: you have a dedicated product page where you can set up the html or wordpress page to display exectly what you want, and then use the add to cart plugins from the download page to do just that. I would guess it would be fairly easy to set up a single template and then duplicate / edit that for each product.

Hi Jan and David

Sorry the original post was missed.

You can have the elements on the detail page in the order and style of your choice with the css layouts

If there's a particular display feature you think we're missing, please let us know by posting in the Suggestions forum as we're currently working on new features for Version 6.8

Last week I purchased the CSS premium layouts & the difference it has made has been superb. With some tweaks, time & along with the ability to move elements around the product detail page using the CSS layout facility, a website could be transformed.
