I have my OpenCart installed, and I have successfully added my products and images, now I need to change a few things around.

Can anyone point me to a thread or give me info on the following?

Should I change the admin directory name? If so, are there files I should update with the new directory name?

How do I add a graphic between the top panel (currency, wish list etc) and the search bar. I want to do a full width header with the name of the store there.

I am going to change simple colors and background using the stylesheet, can anybody show me a tutorial on how (and why) to change things using the templates in the admin?

Many thanks!

Thanks for that, I really want to learn the basics first before branching off into themes.

And if you will need to install third party extensions, most of them will not work with Journal3 theme. Most developers will ask for extra money to adopt that into the Journal3 theme. Here's just one of the reason I don't recommend Journal3. Even some default OC extensions does not work with journal3 theme... But maybe Journal theme developers have fixed that... At this moment I have not checked.

Cheers

There are not a lot of third party extensions that wont work with Journal theme. Lots of authors have already adapted their plugins for Journal theme. I dont think thats a big thing.

Do you know of a way to add a graphic header without using a theme?
