Seen this eBay template, no longer for sale but perfectly suited to the products I sell...

Is there any way to tell from looking at it what DIVs will have been used etc to make up the layout?

View the source, copy the HTML.

Find the reference to the CSS file if there is one, download that and re-use it.

Easy enough to re-create, what do you want to use it with?

its basically an apple rip off theme, must be loads of them about.

That's what I thought but literally been looking for weeks for anything I can reuse as an eBay template that's pretty much a rip off of the Apple theme...then came across this today for 9.99 and somebody has bought the template out so noone else can use it.

Viewing the source code was wishful thinking but they weren't that daft and posted an image.

Only thing I found that comes close was a wordpress theme called iBlogPro:


But its a load of PHP files and I'm only familiar with HTML/CSS so haven't got a clue how to make it into an eBay template.

You, or someone, could re-create the first one in a couple hours.

I'd do it but I've got a bunch of University work to be finished by the next 3 weeks.

EDIT: Not sure how WordPress templates are put together but you could probably rip out all the PHP, at a guess I'd say it's only going to be used to provide the content 'dynamically'.

How do eBay templates work are they just HTML / CSS pulled from a host? so just a website put in the place of the details?

Surely if you know HTML you can whip that up into a template?

Just do a Save Complete of the WordPress page the theme comes from. You'll get all the images, CSS and HTML. Don't worry about trying to pull out the PHP from the HTML if you've downloaded the theme - you can't really do it that way if the theme's been built properly.

Ah yes, ed's way makes more sense. From there you can strip out the unneeded data and quite easily make a template.

Images are there but ideally you need to set it up on Wordpress and do as Ed mentioned otherwise you've got to try and strip it from all the PHP files.

WordPress loads all the CSS automatically/via it's enqueuing system and the images will be loaded using WordPress' URL functions. You need to know how themes work because it's a bit more than just pulling out anything with a <?php ?> wrapped around it.

Yup, using you browser just hit Save As and make sure you've got Web Page Complete selected from the options on the save dialogue. That will get you everything you need and can make any edits using whatever software you normally use.

Yup.

Didn't you post the learn JavaScript (or another language) website?

You mentioned you're familiar with HTML/CSS, if you've got the time it'd be a good exercise to produce the website template you gave in either of the posts.

Ideally get a book but this video series is very good; http://webdesign.tutsplus.com/tutorials/complete-websites/designing-the-simpleadmin-theme-login-page/

Hmmm, cba with all this to set-up wordpress:

http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress

Yeah I don't mind having a crack at building it myself given I've been learning the past few months, it will be good practice, I was just wanting to know what sort of layout (how many divs etc) I need to start with...

Been playing about with this, how do I get the left DIV to sit under the larger right one?

They are currently set to float left and float right but can't figure it out...

Not fully up and running still making tweaks and I'll use my light box to get some better photos (used some random one's I've got to test it) but this is what I have so far:

Got there in the end, ended up ditching their image gallery and using one I've used before.
