Has anyone had any luck converting a CRE Loaded template to OscMax. I ha previously installed CRE Loaded as well as their 6.5 template whcih i bought . Now since i am moving to Max I wanted to convert that template. I have not had much luck.

Is it a BTS template?

Yes. But I think it uses functions from the old BTS that are not in the new BTS. ie the footer class. Among other challenges.

Mike thanks again man! You are always quick to respond. It makes the work to swith to OscMax worth every minute.

I would be more than happy to send you the template .

If it is based on an older BTS, it should be fairly easy to convert. If you do a comparison of the main_page.tpl.php files, you will be able to see the differences quite clearly. Also take a look at the content files and compare your old version to the new, it should be fairly straightforward to do and make the needed changes.

Is there a compare tool that you would reccomend?

Beyond Compare is great. A great free one is Kdiff3...

OK. I am making some headway. PITA but getting there. My homepage seems to be picking up the changes I made to the main_page.tpl.php, however it is the only page. When I click on a product it doesnt seem to use that page. Any suggestions on what other files I need to look at?

For content pages, look in the content directory.
