Editing Front Page Text

Recommended Posts

When I edit the page text in [path to catalog]/includes/languages/english/index.php

and save the edited page to the server the changes don't show up.

 

I open the edited page on the server and it is correct but the changes don't show up in

the browser. I have cleared the browser cache and cookies.

 

What am I missing? I cannot seem to get the changes to show up.

 

Help please, Thanks.

how are you editing? do not edit wth the online file manager within oscommerce, instead ftp to your system, edit, then ftp back to the server

I am using dreamweaverMX and ftp by editing the files locally then saving them

to the remote server. I am sure it is just a simple mistake somewhere, thanks

for your suggestion.

I removed the following text but it still shows up. No errors, just cannot make the edited page display in the browser, it keeps displaying the unedited version of text.

 

Here is what I removed from index.php: (and it is still showing up in the browser)

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.

Here is my edited index.php file:

Any Ideas what is causing this?

Okay I figured it out - I was editing the index.php file in:

 

osCommerce/pkg/catalog/includes/languages/english/index.php

 

 

The correct file to edit to change front page text is exactly where

it is suppose to be:

 

osCommerce/includes/languages/english/index.php

 

 

Everything works now. Problem resolved.
