I'm having an incredibly hard time working out how the f&#$ to get osCommerce to work and I was hoping someone might be able to give a little advice on two things:

a.) Is there any help on the internet or elsewhere that makes using osCommerce a little easier than their skimpy pdf file?

b.) Has anyone used a predesigned osCommerce website template?  Is this easier to use if you're not the greatist at internet stuff?  Has anyone been successful with this?

Basically, I am interested in anyone's successful experience with osCommerce and osCommerce templates. 

Thanks in advance!!!


soon to have an etsy shop!

I use it... it is a pain for sure.  You need to know PHP and understand style sheets in order to get it to work well.

Do you have access to someone who knows PHP?  The key is in the footer and header to make your main changes.

True, osCommerce doesn't have the easiest templates to work with, but being able to work with the CSS stylesheet can go a long way since it allows you to change the colors and fonts. Basic image edition skills are also useful, to change the buttons and backgrounds.
