PROBLEMS with Creating NEW box page

HEy THere

My first and surely not last post :)

 

Hello to all

 

OK, installed ok and made several modifications succesfully

been following this tutorial

http://www.oscommerce.info/kb/osCommerce/C...g_Area/Boxes/49

 

But when I finish it I get "BOX_INFORMATION_ABOUT_US"

in the box instead of just "about us"

 

I have done it three times and get same message for some reason....

 

INcidentally my page "information" looks different

the tutorial says it looks like this in the code:

'<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_SHIPPING, '', 'NONSSL') . '">' . BOX_INFORMATION_SHIPPING . '</a><br>' .

'<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRIVACY, '', 'NONSSL') . '">' . BOX_INFORMATION_PRIVACY . '</a><br>' .

'<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_CONDITIONS, '', 'NONSSL') . '">' . BOX_INFORMATION_CONDITIONS . '</a><br>' .

'<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_CONTACT_US, '', 'NONSSL') . '">' . BOX_INFORMATION_CONTACT . '</a><br>' .

'<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_ABOUT_US, '', 'NONSSL') . '">' . BOX_INFORMATION_ABOUT_US . '</a>'

);

 

 

Mine looks like:

 

$info_box_contents = array();

$info_box_contents[] = array('text' => '<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_ABOUT_US) . '">' . BOX_INFORMATION_ABOUT_US . '</a><br>' .

'<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_SHIPPING) . '">' . BOX_INFORMATION_SHIPPING . '</a><br>' .

'<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRIVACY) . '">' . BOX_INFORMATION_PRIVACY . '</a><br>' .

'<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_CONDITIONS) . '">' . BOX_INFORMATION_CONDITIONS . '</a><br>' .

'<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_CONTACT_US) . '">' . BOX_INFORMATION_CONTACT . '</a>'

);

 

I mention this as i thought this could be the problem

 

I would be indebted for any advice

 

This is truly wonderful ! I love the software and this community

I just finished creating a box with the same problem. I am very new using this program so I will tell you what I did even though I'm not sure it is the right way.

The instructions at item 49 does not tell us to do this.

All I did was to remove the "Box_INFORMATION_" and put my new heading in quotes as follows. "What's Hot"

It seems to work OK, Now after saying that, there is a contribution call "PagerMaker" that will make the pages for you. I have not use it yet, so I can't say how it works.

good Luck.

Masive Thanks

I did as you said Mibble and it worked

added 2 links and changed another, so I am hoping I will get the hang

just 4 quick questions:-

 

1. This is an amazing package !! What do its makers get out of it for providing it for free?

2. Nearly 7,000 Posts !!!!!!!!!! Don't you sleep? :)

3. IS it right to get rid of the OScommerce/Banners links and how do it do it? I don't mind having copyright notices if I have to, but just wanted to customise as much as I can

4. on the index page there is a WHATS NEW HERE header, where is this message hidden for me to alter?

 

Thats all, I promise, everything else seems really intuitive, I have added currencies and changed other things with relative ease

 

Many Thanks
