Configuration PLEASE HELP

I've recently installed osCommerce and I must say that I'm very impressed. Right now I'm still combing through the knowledge base and the osCommerce site for help, but I can't seem to find how I can edit the overall look of my store. I did read on the default store index page where to edit the index.php file in order to edit the text. If I'm correct I'm supposed to look for the syntax:

 

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

 

But I can't find this anywhere. I have also read about Boxes so I can create new pages, but is there anyway I can edit the design and look of the pages that are available now? I know HTML and a few computer languages (except PHP >_< which I think will change when I find the time) I would appreciate the help from anyone who has time. I'm sorta in a bind and need to get things running ASAP..thanks a million!

it states the actual file location, /catalog/includes/languages/english/index.php

all editing is done in a text editor, i suggest you download your whole site locally, learn to edit with a php text editor, and then ftp the changed files to your server. make sure you have backups at all times, especially when learning

That's the location and the file that I looked in and still, I can't find it. I also tried adding the define() function myself and that didn't work. AHHHH! But thanks..that was the fastest response I've ever seen.. :D I don't know if I'll ever get this working :'(

where did u place the files?? look on your site for a folder named includes

once you locate the file in the directory stated, you will then see the text that is on the index.php file, you take that text out, if you are still having issues, i can look for a line number, to reference you to.

 

later,

good luck
