Buy Button change required
I would like to make my BUY button more obvious. I think it needs a 'call to action' next to it as well as being bigger and a shade of yellow. As I have no HTML experience how do I get this done?????Tim

Copy and paste it in your css box, just add it the top.

If you don't like that effect, we can try something else

The code will put an animated .gif in front of your buy button like this:

Oh that's great Joe

Its just dynamic enough to get the page a bit going.
Thanks

Joe - thats awesome, I came here searching for something very much like it.

Do you happen to have something similar I could use for the cart icon when someone is zoomed in on an image? I'm using the Thumbnail template on a lot of my larger galleries and the "buy" button isn't used as often as the cart icon itself.

I'll look into to this and see if I can come up with something....the way that's set up is kinda weird for add content via css..

Joe - this may help - I found an old thread on the same subject, resurrected it, and this was posted:

http://www.dgrin.com/showpost.php?p=1771325&postcount=4

it's not quite what I'd like to see - it's still a small icon, and moving it to the left makes it harder to see than it already is imo - but if we could get something like the animated chevrons, or a flashing "BUY" icon on the existing cart? Does that help?

(and thanks for your help!)
