Hi,

I have recently started looking at magento as the system on which to base all of my clients ecommerce sites. I am so impressed with the usability and feature rich system that has been developed, in my opinion it is THE BEST ecommerce solution, free or bought.

As a designer I will be doing alot of work with the templates and css and I was just wondering if anyone has seen any reference sheets for magento like this one for wordpress… http://headzoo.com/wptcs.png

I would also really like a plain unstyled theme that I could use as a base for my templates like “sandbox” for wordpress. http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2007/10/19/sandbox-friday/

If there is not one available at the moment I might make an equivelant of sandbox for magento when I get the time.

Martin

I read in another thread that the Beta is coming out later today.  Stable 1.1 is due out by the end of the month.  I haven’t tried applying the blank theme to the current stable release of Magento - in theory, it should work.  If you want I can PM you the files for the blank template so you can play.

Wow. That would certainly help! Any chance I can get my hands on a clean template?

Thanks,

Attached is a ZIP file that contains the following templates found in the SVN release of Magento 1.1:

- Default theme
- Modern theme
- Blank theme

The folder structure has been retained for both app and skin directories. Enjoy smile
