Thu May 1 15:08:29 EDT 2003 -- Initial alpha release This is Mike Heins' modified foundation demo. Changes from the one distributed with Interchange: * Virtually all buttons and menus are text-based so that you can add menu entries, buttons, and translations for same without making images. * All look/feel configuration is done by CSS. It should be quite possible to completely change the look simply by editing variables/THEME_CSS and include/layout/*. * There is only one color scheme (blueyellow) and no THEME/STYLE variable. Therefore the regions/ directory is directly in templates. * The default for left-hand side is a product tree, for the top bar is a flydown/out menu. Each are editable from within the UI. * The template layout is contained in include/layout/*, and by [set display_class]leftonly[/set] you can change the type within the page. * The page title, and page banner can be set anywhere before the page footer. * There is an alternative multi-page checkout which has received quite a bit of testing. * UPS lookup for Canada and the US is supported out of the box. * US Postal international shipping is supported. * Customer service pages have been spiffed up and improved a bit. * If you install Text::Query, the search boxes will use Altavista-style search language. * Advanced search page improved quite a bit. * All shipping files/databases moved to products/ship * No more etc/after.cfg -- all configuration in catalog.cfg. * A few new feature demonstrations included. * Some files have been moved to unclutter the top level of the pages/ directory. * More minor changes not mentioned here. The intent is to slowly document each of the areas of this template with online help to provide a constantly-improving catalog application for use by Interchange users not wishing to greatly change the foundation.
