Five questions- Font, Paypal, shopping cart, e-mail

1. How do I skip a few lines on Font and Space JpG and change the font and box size in the box

2. See attached font 2- Change Font in both of those places

3. I want to give the first 100 people to get their yearly subscription for free. The coupon doesn't work because it brings the first year with PayPal free then $17 yearly after that. How can I get this to work?

4. How do I change to look of the shopping cart, it looks like garbage?

    Hiya,

    Let's take a look.

    1. How do I skip a few lines on Font and Space JpG and change the font and box size in the box

    Depends on what you want to do. I'd look into the CSS properties of line-height and line-spacing.

    2. See attached font 2- Change Font in both of those places

    The process will be the same as we looked at yesterday for footer right? We need to target those areas with CSS selectors. Have you used firebug? It's probably the single most fantastic go-to browser tool ever. It really helps finding ones like this.

    For instance, coupon code errors have a class of "psts-error" and success messages have a class of "psts-coupon-msg". Use those to target the messages.

    The paragraph text is a bit more difficult as it's just a normal paragraph. You could try targeting that page specifically or seeing if your theme provides a specific tag for the body. Otherwise, try using the psts-checkout-output class. Something like this:
    #psts-checkout-output p {font-size: 14px; }

    3. I want to give the first 100 people to get their yearly subscription for free. The coupon doesn't work because it brings the first year with PayPal free then $17 yearly after that. How can I get this to work?

    You want the first 100 people to be free for life? If so, you can always provide them with a manual extension. That's what we do here for lifetime members - cancel their subscription and manually extend them for 20 years+ :slight_smile:

    4. How do I change to look of the shopping cart, it looks like garbage?

    See my answer above on Firebug. Seriously, it's your new BFF. You can change literally every component anywhere. http://getfirebug.com/

    It looks like you probably just need wider widget areas in the footer to support the entire shopping cart. Use firebug to see what the current width is set to and try increasing that by approx 50px.

    5. How and where do I change the auto e-mail that goes to a new sign-up before paying for prosite, I want to add text?

    It looks like the email text you provided is the default message that's sent to you as network admin - not the one sent to new sites.

    Regardless, if you go to Network Admin>Settings and scroll down a bit you'll find the default messages for all new site and user signups. Any messages related to Pro Sites can be found under Pro Sites>Settings.

    Hope this helps. Thanks!

    Only for the first year. I called PayPal. I have to charge at least a penny for the year, then $17 each year after.

    Thanks for the info.

    How would they sign-up through PayPal? I would still have the same issue, wouldn't I?

    I need to be sure they have their financial info in Paypal for the following year, correct?

    I am super excited. I don't know if you have been on my site?

    I know I have the font to change and little things.

    Hey, But the functionality is there.

    I have frontend management in place for the new store owner. ( Super easy for the stay at home mom)

    The pro site works with the marketpress too! If I understand correctly, I will be the first to have all three working together. I believe I am with Theme Tailors Frontend plugin. Do you know of any others that have the same functionality? If so, I would love to have their web addresses.

    I can't wait to begin marketing it. I want 6000 users the first year, I'm thinking BIG!

    Hiya,

    The free trial period gives them access for a year and then requires payment. It'll do exactly what you're looking for I believe.

    I have seen your site and it's come quite a long way in a short period of time :slight_smile:

    I know I have the font to change and little things.

    As far as I've ever seen this will always be the case :slight_smile: We're constantly tweaking the font styles and colors even here on WPMU DEV and WPMU.org. I don't know if you ever get it perfect - and even if you do, you'll probably get tired of the design after awhile and want to explore something new. It's an ongoing process :slight_smile:

    I believe I am with Theme Tailors Frontend plugin. Do you know of any others that have the same functionality?

    Definitely a possibility. I know we have a few members rockin' Pro Sites and MarketPress, but don't have any details on who may be using the frontend plugin. Very cool indeed :slight_smile:

    I can't wait to begin marketing it. I want 6000 users the first year, I'm thinking BIG!

    I'd say don't wait! Marketing is the most important thing for any new web venture. Our CEO, @James, put together this article last year. I highly recommend reading it and implementing as many of these ideas as you can:
