    Editing CSS file in Magento

    Hi All,

    I am learning and starting fresh on using Magento platform to setup an online web store. I would like to edit the css and do some changes on my footer tab and some other pages What are the steps I can go about doing it? Am I able to implement the changes inside the Magento Admin Panel?

    Regards,
    Chris

    I've not used Magento, but presumably it will take a while to learn the ins and outs. There is a manual for developers, and also some resources for designers, such as this:

    For those who still wants to edit the footer area. Simply navigate to the following url:
    "public_html/app/design/frontend/"theme name"/default/template/page/html/footer.phtml" and edit as required.

    Regards,
    Chris.

    Stormy, you won't be able to edit the CSS from inside the admin panel. You'll need to use a FTP client to do that.

    Also, if you're starting fresh with a new Magento store I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND creating your own theme copy to work from. The easiest way to do this is to copy all the files from one of the existing Magento themes ("Modern, for example"), rename it and then modify as you wish. Then, if you mess something up you have the original theme underneath to default to simply by removing the problematic file.

    For more info on creating a new theme, check out this post on the Magento site:
