Creating "new" pages i.e. ABout us | Fraud Prevent etc.

Just need to "create" two pages and want to confirm that I have the right directions....I'm using atemplated oSC site from TM and am not necessarily familiar with the term "box" as I don't have any "boxes" on my site...

 

If I follow these instructions will this work to create the pages?

 

Searched from

http://www.oscommerce.info/kb/osCommerce/C...g_Area/Boxes/49

 

 

Introduction

 

Adding an additional box page gives the store owner more flexibility for new pages in their store under the different named boxes.

 

Add Box Pages

 

Adding a page or pages to one of the default boxes or a new box that you have made allows you to add more information easily to your site. Our example box will be the includes/boxes/information.php box.

 

Five files are necessary to change to add more pages to your box. These files can be altered for an already displayed box or a new box.

 

Files to change are:

 

catalog/shipping.php

catalog/includes/filenames.php

catalog/includes/languages/english.php

catalog/includes/languages/english/shipping.php

catalog/includes/boxes/information.php

The directions is the correct set. They are written to add the link in the information box but you can use them slightly modified to add the links to your pages anywhere you want on the site such as the header or footer. Instead of adding the link in the information.php file you will add it where it is you want the links to be located.

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

So I need to do the following:

save /catalog/privacy.php as /catalog/aboutus.php & save /incl/lang/engl/privacy.php as /incl/lang/engl/aboutus.php

 

edit

 

/catalog/aboutus.php - make changes according to directions...

 

/incl/lang/engl/aboutus.php - edit Text_Information define etc.

 

catalog/includes/filenames.php - make changes according to directions, swapping in aboutus.php

 

catalog/includes/languages/english.php - make changes according to directions, swapping in aboutus.php

 

Added About us link to bottom of footer and hreffed aboutus.php.

 

(repeat for fraud prevent page)

 

right?
