Morning al you geniuses out there!

 

When you first load oscommerce, the standard "index" page reads something like the page I will post at the end of my post.

 

Where do I find this page to edit it please??

 

Thanks

This is a default setup of the osCommerce project, products shown are for demonstrational purposes, any products purchased will not be delivered nor will the customer be billed. Any information seen on these products is to be treated as fictional.

 

Error Messages

 

If there are any error or warning messages shown above, please correct them first before proceeding.

 

Error messages are displayed at the very top of the page with a complete background color.

 

Several checks are performed to ensure a healthy setup of your online store - these checks can be disabled by editing the appropriate parameters at the bottom of the includes/application_top.php file.

Editing Page Texts

 

The text shown here can be modified in the following file, on each language basis:

 

[path to catalog]/includes/languages/english/index.php

 

That file can be edited manually, or via the Administration Tool with the Languages->English->Define or Tools->File Manager modules.

 

The text is set in the following manner:

 

define('TEXT_MAIN', 'This is a default setup of the osCommerce project...');

 

The text highlighted in green may be modified - it is important to keep the define() of the TEXT_MAIN keyword. To remove the text for TEXT_MAIN completely, the following example is used where only two single quote characters exist:

 

define('TEXT_MAIN', '');

 

More information concerning the PHP define() function can be read here.

Securing The Administration Tool

 

It is important to secure the Administration Tool as there is currently no security implementation available.

Online Documentation

 

Online documentation can be read at the osCommerce Wiki Documentation Effort site.

 

Community support is available at the osCommerce Community Support Forums site.

As it says on the page itself:

The text shown here can be modified in the following file, on each language basis:

 

[path to catalog]/includes/languages/english/index.php

 

You need to open the file either thru your ftp program or your online control panel. NOT the file manager that comes with oscommerce.
