Guide to Easily Updating Your Cart and Checkout Images

The default FoxyCart images are fine, but if you would like to customize them, it can take some time to hunt them all down, rebuild the images and then adjust the CSS in new templates. Here are some shortcuts to save you a bunch of time.

Step 2: Upload Files

Put your images in a folder called “cartimages” underneath the folder where you will store your temporary caching files. You can do this right off the root or in your theme folder. Putting them in your theme folder makes them a little more portable as they can easily travel with your theme.

Step 3: Setup templates

Make three new files called template_cart.html, template_checkout.html, and template_receipt.html. Copy the contents of the FoxyCart templates to the appropriate folders.

Step 4: Put in the new CSS
