osCommerce and most other ecommerce scripts make a lot of use of forms. They can be found all over the place including most of the checkout procedure, product_info, login, create_account and so on.
And forms are damnable ugly. So, my idea was to hunt out some code that would replace the standard ugly form elements with something a little nicer.
I found a nice jQuery script called “jNice” – you can see an example at the authors homepage. The code allows us to go from this standard, grey, ugly form:
To this, which is a lot nicer:
Also, we can control the look of the actual dropdown via CSS, as so:
Which I am sure you will agree is a lot nicer that the usual dropdown.
