    We do the same - we've found it's just easier to add upgraded features/items to the modified template than start with a new template and then make extensive modifications to that.

    We are having some trouble with these changes. We reinstalled our template to be able to use the 3.2 features, but after re-applying our customizations, we lost the Quick Edit bar. Already submitted a ticket, which has been escalated (I simply adore the amazing tech support people) but we don't have a fix yet. Has this happened to anyone else?

    Actually just having the new features list with specific template/s per item affected would be ideal and to pick and choose with ones and how to implement. I certainly wouldn't want to swap our frame or the CSS out now.

    We installed the updated v30014 template last night. We are tweaking it today. We made a few changes such as the left and right banner width, back to what we had before. We had to make a minor change to the center column widths where our tabbed panel goes and trim off a view pixels from our embedded videos, but, things are coming along nicely. :)
    We are trying to revert the top seller code, because we prefered that over the new code. The new code looks a bit too large for our right banner and get things out of balance. We liked the little tiny thummnails that were there before. Here is our test item page: http://www.concession-supply.com/Gol...ine_p_770.html

    We are testing with three different computers/browser/operating systems. The monitor "I" work from is the old 4:3 ratio style, so, we use a 980 pixel width to prevent the requirement of horizontal scrolling. Please let us know if you see any issues with our product page with your browser!
    Thanks in advance! :)

    I'll be staying tuned to this thread and hopefully 3dCart will weigh in on the situation because it sounds like there's still a lot of confusion out there BESIDES ours!

    I'm not sure just what files need to be changed, or whatever. I know the frame file is the overall look and feel of the website, but, we've changed the listing_X, checkout1, tracking, recommendafriend, category_1, invoice_print, listing_X, notify, affiliate, search, registration, account, search_group, etc. So, we really don't know if these need updating or not.

    It looks like we should be okay since we are using the default_modified css file. We took a lot of time to get that file right, so, we made a backup of that. We intend to upgrade the frame.html file so we hope the modified css file will still work. :)

    But doesn't that mean that @Mark's site will not have the benefit of the new features in 3.2? There have been numerous posts from 3dCart that in order to take advantage of the new features, we must be using either a new 3.2 template or a reloaded/updated 3.0 template.

    Good idea, no sense in fixing what's not broken.

    Wow, I guess we'll just stay on our current version. :(
    We've invested too much time getting our site like we wanted.

    Sorry, i should have been more specific, the template includes:

    frame.html
    default.css (in css folder)
    images folder with images for that template

    Downloading it will overwrite those.

    if you had made changes to any of these 3 files, you would need to re-apply those changes after you download the template.

    Okay, thanks. Will all the css settings remain, such as the fonts, and sizes and such? :)

    A template is just the file "frame.html" that's the only file it will overwrite.

    Okay, exactly what does upgrading the "template" do?
    In other words, overwriting the latest theme does that overwrite all the html files we changed, such as listing_x.html, checkout1.html, category.html, tracking.html, etc.....?

    As we explained before, the upgrade does not touch your template. You can upgrade it by simply downloading it over yours. (go to the themes & style page, find the template on the available tab (left tab), and download it. It will prompt you that you already have it, choose to overwrite it, and there you go.

    MAKE A BACKUP OF YOURS FIRST - Via ftp, in case you need to go back as support can't help you if you chose to overwrite the file and then want it back later.
