osCommerce

The e-commerce.

Installing when using Frontpage


OKCEA

Recommended Posts

I have been using Frontpage software to build my websites for several years. I now have a site that I would like to add a very simple shopping cart for the sale of their fundraiser merchandise. They only have about a dozen or so items. They do not even want to accept credit card payments at this time. All I need is a simple program that will produce an order page that will be sent by email to me.

 

With that said... I was trying to use osCommerce. My webhost supports this script and I believe that I have everything set up correctly with my web hosting service.... However; how do I now connect my existing website to osCommerce? I am thinking that I will need to set up some files in either cgi or somewhere else on Frontpage. I am thinking that I could then download the oscommerce backup to notepad and then insert this file into the Frontpage folder for cgi. Am I on the right track or not?

 

Has anyone else every used osCommerce with Frontpage? I would greatly appreciate any instructions about this step of the process.

 

Thank You! :D

You just need to install oscommerce into some sub-directory, like shop. Then place a link in your home page to that directory.

Frontpage always used to insert it's own code into your pages - for this reason it's best avoided for working with OSC. A really good HTML editor (Macromedia Homesite is the best I've ever used) is the best tool for working with OSC.

Thank you for your help. I will try that tonight and see if it will work for me. While I know there are lots of other website design packages out there that would be more shopping cart friendly... I really didn't want to try to learn a new software or buy more when all I needed for this site was a very basic shopping cart for about a dozen items. Hopefully this will work for me. I will post a response later as to whether this worked for me so that if there are any other Frontpage users out there...This might help them as well.

 

Thank You!!!
