View Full Version : Joomla 2.5 Template Editing Problem?

08-10-2012, 08:49 PM
Hey there! I am working on a project using Joomla 2.5 as its platform. I found a theme that I liked and I am currently using entitled Shaper Simplicity II. I've had great success with it up to this point and now I can't seem to get what I need done.

I have contacted the designer of the theme but since it is not one of the Premium Themes the support for it is low priority.

Basically, what I am trying to do is add two buttons on to the theme. Sound simple, right? Well my problem is I cannot for the life of me find where I need to correctly edit the code to implement these two buttons.

This is what I would like for it to look like:

Then obviously have the two buttons going to their respective location. The one on the left going to the purchase form and the one on the right going to more information regarding the product.

Between the Menu and the 3 Columns at the bottom I made it one giant imagine that I thought I could edit the links to but it didn't work the way I needed it to.

So, then I tried to use the editor in Joomla 2.5 called JCE to edit it. I basically separated the buttons and text into separate images that I could just paste and then go in and change where the images point to. The problem was I couldn't align everything properly and it ended up looking like this:


After trying to use Joomla 2.5 to solve my problems I decided I would go in and try to edit the actual source code and see if I could just simply do it that way but when looking through the actual files I was unable to find where I could. You can find the untouched files here:

I am kind of stuck right now and would appreciate any kind of assistance anyone can give me! I've been trying to figure this out for 4 days now and decided to give in and ask for help!

Thanks for your time!
Look forward to hearing from you guys!
