Recently, I worked on a project for a client who had a special request for custom functionality on their site. Instead of using the standard newsletter e-mail capture, they wanted an additional form that would present in a lightbox after the user entered their e-mail and clicked “submit” for the first form. I did it, using a custom form handler and some jQuery – this is how.
I started by creating the first custom form that mimic’d the standard newsletter e-mail capture format, then implemented a custom submission handler, as described here: “Implementing A Custom Form Submission Handler”. Fairly straightforward, up to the point where I had to sort out how to enable the second form to pop up in the lightbox. It’s easy enough when you’re calling a link from a page: just add the “cblink” class to your link. It’s a bit trickier when you’re leveraging a form submission, so I got a bit more creative.Learn More

In Part 1, we covered the basic elements involved in designing a modern website; today, we’ll begin examining methods of creating a mojoPortal skin.
There are two basic ways to begin a custom skin for mojoPortal; modify an existing skin, or create one from scratch. Even with the “from scratch” route, there’s the school of thought to “hand-code everything”, or use an automation tool to handle some of the more tedious aspects of design. If you’re faster at writing your own .css code from the ground up, by all means, do so – for me personally, that’s far too time-consuming, so I use an automation workflow to address some of the more tedious aspects of this phase.Learn More

Creating a mojoPortal skin is relatively easy, as CMS systems go. However, it’s not just pick colors, click a button, and go. There are various considerations to keep in mind, and steps to go through in order to achieve maximum results. Today in Part 1, we’ll cover the foundation elements for creating your mojoPortal skin.
If you’re an experienced designer, you’re probably already familiar with the 960 grid system; the good news is that you can still use it in designs for mojoPortal skins, so don’t try to constrain yourself to the 3-column layout that is the default for mojoPortal; we’ll cover how to implement layout variations in later parts of this series.Learn More

When customizing a nopCommerce installation, it may be necessary to add a custom field or title; in order to ensure that you can support that custom field in more than one language, it’s a good idea to add it to your language resources. Here’s how to do that.
1. Log into nopCommerce as an admin, and navigate to the Administration area
2. Click on “Configuration”=>”Languages”, and next to your preferred language (in this case, “English”), click “View String Resources”.
3. Click the “Add New Record” button on the left; enter a value for the resource name, and the title of the link you’re creating as a value.Learn More
