Hi mate

 

Thanks for the quick reply,

 

I did pay for someone to do it but since then I am not to keen on the page he as put on, I have built pages before using dreamweaver and frontpage but I was wondering if I built a page for the site out of one of these programs can you just add it over the default OsCommernce Homepage which is on there already.

 

I am after putting something like a Christmas home page on there.

 

Thanks again

If you paid one guy to do it why do you think another will volunteer with no compensation for the same job?

 

I believe you will be stuck doing this yourself, paying the other guy more money, or paying someone else more money to tune the site to your liking.

On a more positive note - you have to understand the basics of how osCommerce works. There is an index.php in the root directory, and this contains the php code which calls in the header, footer, and left and right columns - and calls in text and html code from another index.php page at the level of includes/languages/english/ It's at this level that the html code and text are added. Below is the code for an almost blank privacy.php page. You can see where the code goes.

Maybe Vger is right...I'm coming off a little too negative on this one.

 

Let's start again. It is possible to change the look of your homepage and is easily done with a template system. Please search the contribution area for "template system" which should present a few options. The most popular is BTS (basic template system) and STS (simple template system). Install the most appropriate one and start designing your new homepage!

I do apologize...that is not my usual disposition. I am usually mild mannered and somewhat helpful. Good luck with your store customization!

No I think he read the "can you do it" in your second post as you were asking him to do it as opposed to whether it was possible.

 

If you want to stay away from the php as much as possible I would go with the sts template system. It allows you to control the setup of your site from one html file.

The Knowledge Base is a wonderful thing.

Do you have a problem? Have you checked out Common Problems?

There are many very useful osC Contributions

Are you having trouble with a installed contribution? Have you checked out the support thread found Here

BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP!!! You did backup, right??
