I have looked at 6.5 in the past and am interested in purchasing v7 just wondering if the "shoppage_header.htm" can be edited the same in 7.0 as it was in 6.5

yes, it can be edited the same way.

The code that's inside it is more "functional" than before though, so it's basically a bit of html with a handful of quite high-level vbscript function calls that do quite a lot of stuff.

However, the good point is that you have a choice, and you can mix+match, because it also has a detailed template file (shoppage_template.htm) which breaks-down the individual html bits a lot more.

This means that you can use the vpasp "layout manager" to control the panel elements, or, if you want more detailed control then you can use the shoppage_template.htm as your base for your header/trailer files and then code things in there manually.

You can do quite a lot of tweaks via the layout manager without having to change the actual template files. You can move the elements around, hide them, add new html elements, change the formatting/options of them etc; it's well worth playing around on the layout manager to see what you can do before you start trying to manually tweak the header/trailer files.

But, you might also find this handy if you want to code-up vbscript elements for your panels but still want to also keep the layout manager with the simple templates:

I was curious about this too. Particularly I was wondering where would you edit the header image to use the mailto: function (eg for enquiries) instead of the automatic link to the homepage?

Download the design guide and the user guide and you should be good ;).

I would encourage you to consider using the 'contact us' link/page that comes with the site. Many people use webmail (gmail, aol, hotmail, etc.) and for them, a mailto: will open a default email program (outlook express, thunderbird) and the like.
