Hi Jeff,

To edit the look and feel of the demo, look over the files in the
catroot/templates directory.

The way it works is that the page the visitor sees is actually put together
on the fly by Interchange using several other files. These other pieces are
called in the primary page with variable calls like:


The benefit of this should be apparent. You need to change the sites menu or
header? Just edit that piece of code in one place and it's automatically
updated everywhere else.

Your best bet will likely be to use what you've got and just replace the
templates and data. It would be a lot of manual work to create a catalog
without using makecat and not basing it on a demo.

Good luck,

Hello All,

I am rather new to interchange and have gotten it successfully installed now
but I am looking for some advise on how to create a different look than the
one that comes with the demo. I am most intersted in how I might go about
creating different templates.  The second question is as I said I have it
installed but I installed it as the demo. How can I get Interchange
installed without having the demo setup if it can be done?
