osCommerce 2.2 doesn't come with a built in template management system. Traditional osCommerce 2.2 templates require you to overwrite your store files and can be complicated to integrate and modify. The Simple Template System (STS) is an easy-to-install module that makes it easy to install, use and modify true templates without overwriting store files.
Installation time for the STS module depends on how heavily modified your store is. If you're installing a new store, STS can be installed in about 10 minutes. If your store is modified, it may take about half an hour. A small time investment compared to the amount of time you'll have saved by updating your osCommerce installation with a practical and user-friendly template management system.
The osCommerce 2.2 templates available on this website were built on the STS 4.5.8 framework. For more information on STS, visit the official STS page on the osCommerce website.
The Simple Template System (STS), a free osCommerce add-on, is the template system osCommerce 2.2 should have come with. It makes using templates and editing your store's appearance easy. Read more.
