A few little probs

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I know I have probably overlooked every instruction set in the knowledgebase, but could one of you guru's please help me thru these 2 simple problems:

 

1# How the heck do I modify the page that says "What's New Here? Sunday 06 February, 2000

 

Welcome to 'The Media Centre Experts'! This is a demonstration online-shop, any products purchased will not be delivered nor billed. Any information seen on these products are to be treated fictional"

 

2# How can I change the date and time OScommerce picks up ? Currently its using a US time zone, but my store is based in Australia. The hosting is also in the US.

 

3# For some reason all my products prices are not correct. For example: If i enter in a value of product one as $2000, for some reason its being displayed as $3809.40.

 

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated !

 

Thanks,

 

Matt

Hi Matt,

 

1# How the heck do I modify the page that says "What's New Here?    Sunday 06 February, 2000 

 

Welcome to 'The Media Centre Experts'! This is a demonstration online-shop, any products purchased will not be delivered nor billed. Any information seen on these products are to be treated fictional"

 

This text is contained in /includes/languages/index.php. Open this file and change it to suit your needs.

 

2# How can I change the date and time OScommerce picks up ? Currently its using a US time zone, but my store is based in Australia. The hosting is also in the US.

Not exactly sure, but I believe that this is included in the site setup. Either re-run your install, or edit /includes/configure.php Anyone else??

 

3# For some reason all my products prices are not correct. For example: If i enter in a value of product one as $2000, for some reason its being displayed as $3809.40.

 

Sounds like your currencies are not set up correctly. Go into your admin area, select Localization, and then Currencies. Configure this appropriately.

 

Hope this helped!

How can I change the date and time OScommerce picks up ?

You'll need to edit the @setlocale(LC_TIME, 'en_US.ISO_8859-1');

to your own time zone. Don't know what that is, so you'll have to run a search for it.

 

For some reason all my products prices are not correct. For example: If i enter in a value of product one as $2000, for some reason its being displayed as $3809.40

 

This sounds like a problem with your currency settings. Again in includes/languages/english.php you'll need to find 'USD' and change it to the three letter designation for Australian Dollars (AUS?). You'll also have to check that in your osCommerce Control Panel that Australian Dollars is your default currency, and then run an update of the other currencies.

Thanks.

Can you tell me what you mean by "run an update" on the currencies ?

 

Currently Im only using one currency and that is the way it will stay.

Hi everybody,

I am new to oscommerce and my shop works fine except

when I try to change the text on this page (/includes/languages/'language'/index.php) my index page only displays the php commands and does not include the welcome headline.

When I have changed these files on my local xampp server for testing purposes it worked. Can anybody help
