Shipping price calculator and One page checkout

Included in the package please check magento backend system->configuration->web-and-people section.
If you get 404 error when you try to access any extension, please relogin to the backend.

If you are using non English language(es):

"Most Popular" sentence is not present in the default language packs. We need to add it manually.

Open file directory where your magento is. Go to "app/design/frontend/default/lightshop_green/locale/"

There is a "en_US/translate.csv" file there. Copy it to any locale you need (like "da_DK/translate.csv") and edit "translate.csv" file.

It holds this text:

"Most Popular","Most Popular"

You need to change it to:

"Most Popular","[[Most popular in your language]]"

Note that file encoding should be UTF8.

Congratulations! Your magento theme is ready!
