How do I change stylesheets?
Posted by Michael G.K on 30 August 2008 05:07 AM

If you would like to modify the content style sheets manually all of the css files are located in the /skins/flat/styles folder. There you can find 3 files.

1) styles_templates.css – This is the css template file. It defines the styles template (or base for result css). IXXO Cart uses this file to generate the  "final" css file.

2) styles.css – This is the generated css file. It is based on styles_templates.css file, but there is the option to  replaced fonts and colors tags with values from your cart settings.

3) fonts.conf – contains font settings for most of the elements in your cart

There are 2 ways how to add custom styles to your cart.

1) Backup your .css file by renaming it. This prevents the need to change index.html to use a different file. If you create separate css file,and define your styles there, don't forget to call this file from index.html

2) You can edit styles_templates.css, add your styles there. But you must use the same programming style already in place. Note – this is a template file and it has special tags and commands for  the Smarty templates engine (you can learn more about smarty at

Please note: Some of these files are written to from the cart software. Your changes will only remain as long as site colors or fonts are not edited in IXXO Cart admin area.
