    After you downloaded and applied one of the skins for Boss Cart (a selection of them can be found over here: Boss Cart - Search Engine Friendly Shopping Basket) you'd probably like to add some unique touch to your shop. Here's few tips where to start.

    For the reasons mentioned below and your sake always back up before starting the experiments! It saves a lot of headache ;)

    1. LOGO

    To replace Boss Cart logo with your own shop logo you need the following:
    a) click right mouse button over logo on the main page. Select picture properties.
    b) make note of the picture name and location.

    Now you have two options - change or replace.
    c) To change the picture to contain your logo instead of Boss Cart logo you need to edit the picture in skin directory using some photo manipulation software (Photoshop, GiMP etc.) and apply your logo. Then after the upload your logo should be visible.
    d) Second option is to change the name of your logo picture to the name of the file noted in point b) and upload it to its directory overwritting the original one.

    Though second option seems much simplier you need to remeber that your raw logo may not fully go with the website design which may result in spoiled design. Also if your logo pic will be of a different size than the original picture you replaced then it may seriously damage the layout!


    This one is easy, but also very nice for SEO of your website.

    * To add an alt tag to your logo image please go to your skin directory,
    * find your skin folder, go inside and then into templates folder.
    * In this folder find blank.tpl file and open it to edit. (You may use any text editor starting with Notepad, but using software designed for web building purposes (that colours the tags) is easier and faster)
    * find the tag responsible for your logo picture, it should look like this:
    <img src="/images/LOGO-PIC.gif" />
    where 'LOGO-PIC.gif should be your actual logo name (how to check it? see point 1. above)
    Add your alt tag inside this img tag, it should look like this after you're done:
    <img src="/images/LOGO-PIC.gif" alt="Logo of My Perfect Shop" />
    * Save and upload and you're done!


    This is it for now, if you have any questions please post them below and I will add the solution here :)

    Kind Regards,
