    How was this site made?

    http://www.infonec.com/site/main.php

    I assume this site was made using a CMS of some sort... Could anyone give me more info on this?

    really elaborate ... takes a long time to load ...

    Looks like a PHP/MySQL script ... hard to say what scripts they are using.

    I've also noticed that this site: http://www.logiccomputerhouse.com/site/main.php seems to be made the same way. Same URL structure, pretty similiar navigation, same "Page generated in ___ seconds" thing at the bottom...

    It may well be that the same company designed them both, and is using their own bespoke e-commerce solution. They could also be using something commercially available, although it doesn't look like anything I'm familiar with?

    Why do you ask?

    I was just curious, since I've been experimenting with CMS's lately and happened to be on that site and noticed it looked like it was made with one.

    magicpaul ...

    And what I like about CubeCart, is that it's pretty easy to
    customize it so it looks like the rest of my site ... and when
    the final design has been customized, you can pay the small
    fee to remove all branding.

    That makes it really nice for developing ... it's totally free.

    And with a webhost like www.cleverdot.com, they have a thing
    called "fantastico". It totally installs and configures CubeCart
    with the click of a button. Does the MySQL thing and creates/installs
    all the PHP in your directories all automatically ... I'm thinking there
    must be other webhosts that do the same thing.

    You can of course install CubeCart for free all by yourself.

    Are you talking about the box with the vertical scroll bar?

    You can just use CSS to do that easily, or a <frame> or inline-frame <iframe>.

    CSS is the best way to go.
    Note: scrollbar color only works for IE.

    <html>
    <head>
    <title>test page</title>
    <style>
    #scroll_box {
    background-color: #ffffff;
    font-family: "Arial", sans-serif;
    font-weight: normal;
    font-size: 14pt;
    margin: 0px auto;
    padding: 20px 40px 20px 40px;
    width: 575px;
    height: 450px;
    color: #3f3f3f;
    scrollbar-base-color: #e0e0e0;
    border: 1px solid #e0e0e0;
    text-align: justify;
    overflow : auto;
    }
    </style>
    </head>
    <body>
    <div id="scroll_box">
    Your text here ....
    The vertical scroll bar will appear only when the
    text exceeds the height value.
    </div>
    </body>
    </html>

    placement

    This is one way to position the box: tell it how far from the left side and how far from the top it's supposed to be.
    Code:
    #scroll_box {
    position: absolute;
    left:20px;
    top: 20px;
    background-color: #ffffff;
    font-family: "Arial", sans-serif;
    font-weight: normal;
    font-size: 14pt;
    margin: 0px auto;
    padding: 20px 40px 20px 40px;
    width: 575px;
    height: 450px;
    color: #3f3f3f;
    scrollbar-base-color: #e0e0e0;
    border: 1px solid #e0e0e0;
    text-align: justify;
    overflow : auto;
    }
    NOTE: there is also position: relative, where it places itself in relation to something else, fixed, where it doesn't move when the page is scrolled (except in Internet Explorer, who is stupid) float:left;, where it moves top-left, float:right; top right, but you can set margins so it doesn't come too close to the sides.
    Here is a wonderful page about what you can do with CSS:http://www.cssplay.co.uk/index.html
    It's easy to understand and just plain fun!
    Good luck!
