HOw many times have you seen an osCommerce store that has the same boring old layout for the product_info.php page? 100s of times, I bet.
Even some of the templates from Template Monster etc have only amended the larger picture rather than concentrating on smaller changes to individual pages.
Today, whilst I was doing one of my popular osCommerce makeovers, I decided to experiment a bit with a slightly different take on product_info.php – basically I wanted to put the buy button etc at the TOP of the description rather than at the bottom. My view is that it’s better to get the important stuff at the top of the page…
Anyway, here’s an image of what I came up with;
Basically, I moved the “price” information down below the product name. I also updated the price layout to read nicer (our price, you save etc). I then moved the “product attributes” and “buy button” up alongside the price, so it all looks like it is on one line. I then added a bit of candy (the faded underline effect) to break up this area from the “price” line and the “product info”.
I think it looks decent, what do you think?
