Well, it has certainly been a learning process, but I think I can get magento to work, for my purposes.
see attachments for screenshots, the site is being updated to version 1 right now
It’s been a couple of weeks of off and on development, and there are many changes I would like to make, but this is what I have so far, and at this point I am going to stop working until release milestone 1 so I won’t have to do a bunch of extra work
This was a very rough hack job, so I can’t release this as a theme. It just plain wouldn’t work, especially if you don’t run version 0.7. In the future I do hope to make this downloadable for you all, but I don’t know when its likely to be, so lets just say it won’t happen at all.
It’s mostly a visual change from the default, but there are some tweaks
-I can now load whatever I want easily into the top navigation
-Custom CSS was added
-Left hand navigation made standard
-Search box (and left navigation) moved
-Images changed (background gradients removed, logo changed, search box image, )
-Removed all magento CMS pages except 404 and transferred CMS responsibility over to wordpress (links not visible yet)
-Favicon removed for now
-Languages and currency removed
I was going to change the color scheme, but once I started putting in the company’s design scheme it seemed to work quite well with magento’s default, so i mostly left it alone.
files that were changed (there might have been more, I should have kept better track)
