What have i been doing?

Wow its been a while since i last posted here kinda been busy with work and all. February was a frakkin doozy, Valentines week was fun and tiring at the same time. We got tons of orders and we only got a handful of complaints.

But after the controlled chaos that was valentines day i got sick and also my family. We bought food from three restaurant to celebrate a belated valentines day. The following day i got a major case of diarrhea or diarrhoea (which ever spelling you prefer) i was practically in the bathroom the whole frakkin day. My mom and two brothers got sick too. I wasn't able to go to work for 3 or 4 days.

What else have i been doin? Aside from the usual uploading of new products to sell online, i am also creating a website, an online store again but this time i am doing it the old school way. I'm talking pure html and css code via notepad. No fancy smancy CMS. I feel like I'm in highschool again hehehe. Why am i doing it you may ask? Well the boss wants me to do it for the sake of SEO and stuff, who am i to argue. But honestly doing the site is lots of fun.

What else... I was surfing the net for a e-commerce plugin for wordpress when i found craftycart it was exaactly what i needed. It was nice but my boss wanted me to use pure html so i have to put it in the back burner for a while. Using craftycart for a while got me thinking, can i create an online store using blooger. The answer was yes. So i made one using paypal, you can see my experiment here. Did some blogger tricks to make it look that way. One of the tricks or tips i used was using the conditional tags and Blogger buster's article on conditional tags "Display Elements only on Home, Item or Archive Pages in Blogger" was a big help. Right now I'm thinking of porting CraftyCart template to blogger and use simpleCart(js) + paypal as it's shopping cart. That is if i can make some time for it.

Thats all for now, Cya!

I have been trying to make a blogger store as well. I'm almost done with it but I can't seem to figure out how to have several pictures in one post like you do on your site. A code would be wonderful, but if you can't, I'll respect that. Take a look at what I have. www.catherineshandcraftedbodyproducts.com

I went to your site and i must say its pretty nice.

the code is just a simple html table inside a post. but in order for it to work you have to use link widget not the label widget. Once you intalled the link widget you will need to insert the URL/s of the post with the table(also known as category page). A little warning though, using this method is very tedious as you will have to manually insert the URL of each products in your table.

I'm not sure if that helps you but your free to view the source and copy code if you want.
