I want to make the font smaller on the left hand navigation.

Support said this: Fonts are controlled by the stylesheet shop.css, links by the A:link definition.

I tried changing the size there, and that changes the size of other links in the cart, not the left hand navigation.

Does anyone have any idea's?

Thanks,
Brian Weber

In shop.css you need to change the style sheet that is applied to the links then reload the shop configuration:

A:link
{
FONT-WEIGHT: bold;
FONT-SIZE: 10pt;
COLOR: black;
FONT-FAMILY: Tahoma, Verdana;
TEXT-DECORATION: underline
}
A:active
{
FONT-WEIGHT: bold;
FONT-SIZE: 10pt;
COLOR: black;
FONT-FAMILY: Tahoma, Verdana;
TEXT-DECORATION: underline
}
A:visited
{
FONT-WEIGHT: bold;
FONT-SIZE: 10pt;
COLOR: black;
FONT-FAMILY: Verdana, Tahoma;
TEXT-DECORATION: underline

I created additional styles in shop.css and used those for the left-links etc.

So, you'd add something like the following to shop.css:

.LeftMenuLink:link
{
FONT-WEIGHT: bold;
FONT-SIZE: 8pt;
COLOR: black;
FONT-FAMILY: Tahoma, Verdana;
TEXT-DECORATION: underline
}
.LeftMenuLink:active
{
FONT-WEIGHT: bold;
FONT-SIZE: 8pt;
COLOR: black;
FONT-FAMILY: Tahoma, Verdana;
TEXT-DECORATION: underline
}
.LeftMenuLink:visited
{
FONT-WEIGHT: bold;
FONT-SIZE: 8pt;
COLOR: black;
FONT-FAMILY: Verdana, Tahoma;
TEXT-DECORATION: underline
}

(note the extra dot at the front of the style definition) and then whenever you want to use that size/style for a given link, you'd use the class method (without the dot) thus:

<a href="blah.asp" class="LeftMenuLink">Blah</a>

This would allow you to keep your standard link style for all your other links, while also being able to use a central style for left-links etc.

Similar logic goes for printing text, where you could create a style in shop.css like:

.TeenyWeenyText
{
FONT-WEIGHT: normal;
FONT-SIZE: 6pt;
COLOR: black;
FONT-FAMILY: Verdana, Tahoma;
TEXT-DECORATION: none
}

and then for text to show in that format you'd use:

<span class="TeenyWeenyText">
This site is cool blah blah
</span>


Style sheets (css files/definitions) are wonderful things; vp-asp uses a kind of catch-all set of styles for the default links/text etc in shop.css+shopadmin.css, as well as other values in shop$colors.asp. You can leave all the vpasp default styles in there as the fall-through (and/or just change their settings), and just add your own extra ones on an as/when needed basis.
