can i add a shopping cart to yola. i ask this as i use EMS for shipping for this there are 14 zones each charged at different rates and each zone devided up into 500g divishions so this needs to be taken in to account when it is check out time there is a 1500thai bhat paper work charge for every box and ems only send up to 20 000g so i also need to add a new paper work charge every time they go over the 20000g
i want to incorprate a currency converter in this to so the buyer can pick their currency and all the prices on the site change to that currency and a translator too. before i joined yola silver i did ask if this is doable with what yola has to offer meaning (with out having to buy more 3rd party soft ware) and was told that there are widgets to do the currency converter as i describe but it seams i can't find them i, i van find converters to change an amount but i think people will get anoyed with that after converting the 4th or 5th item i want the prices to desplay in the currency picked, i know the last few days seems like i am moning alot but i have been trying for weeks to sort this out on my own and i just can't. anything you can tell me to help would be great
thanks and you guys do a great job by the way

Hello Andreas,

There isn't a single widget available for free to do all that you need to do. Your requirements are very complex for a simple widget.

You do have some alternatives though including the paid services available on line. There is one free shopping cart that may be able to help Quick Cart http://www.quickcart.com/features.cfm. Your other easiest option is to use Google Checkout as they have a list of instructions to build a complex system into their checkout. You can integrate this with a spreadsheet of all the variables needed to set the bill. Finally and this is probably the most complex but the most specific is to go to the PayPal facility at https://cms.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/?cm... and build the requirement tailoring it to your needs.

The vertical misalignement in your gallery is due to the the different numbers of lines as you say. You can overcome this by adding exactly the same number of lines to each by simply adding blank lines at the end of the shorter entries.

The variation in the middle space, between images is due to a variation in image sizes. The difference is small but significant. Firstly turn off image optimisation. and either adjust each image to exactly the same width and height (This won't cause any distortion because your image sizes are almost the same but not quite) using an image program or by stating the width and height in your HTML for each image and let that do the adjustments. <!--img style=" width: 220px; height: 150px;" src="resources/image.jpg" -->

If you do these two things you will have consistent gaps in the vertical colum and the space between each item.

I can confirm Yola's online store widget cannot accomplish what you are after so a third party shopping cart such as those that Gop suggested above are your best options. So long as they allow you to customize the cart you want and grab the code to paste into an HTML widget you should find it compatible with your Yola site. There are a lot of cart options out there so if the ones mentioned above don't suit you I suggest you Google around for others.
