the header is being displayed by calling ShopPageHeader, if you want to use a seperate header you can comment that line and replace it with your custom html code

Browsers automatically go to index or default pages in the root directory.
If you have your cart in /shopping folder, then you could have a seperate index or default page in the root that has your login form and have the action="" call send it via the /shopping/yourfilename.asp directive page...assuming that is the folder your cart is in.

Well, I just did this yesterday for a new v6 install, so if you don't have that, you're mileage may vary. Anyways, I did the following:

in shopheaders.asp, there is a procedure (sub) called ShopPageHeader. Copy the entire function (to the first place you see 'end sub' and then paste it below. Call this sub 'ShopPageHeader_Default', or whatever you want to call it. Then edit the line in the sub that says

%>
<!-- #include file="shoppage_header.htm" -->
<%

change this to the template file you want to use.

Finally, in your default.asp, change the the line
<%shopPageHeader%>

to the name of the sub you just created. Repeat the process for the trailer templates if you like as well.
Then just modify shoppage_header.htm to make it look the way you want and save it as
ShopPageHeader_Default.htm, or whatever you want to call it.

Special Thanks to - craig simons who helped me with this on January 16 2006 11:55:14
