Missing Footer???


Recommended Posts

I have done this many times and I can't figure out why my footer is not showing up.


When I look at the source, the code stops at

<!-- right_navigation //-->


Where is the rest of it?


The URL is...

OK no promises here but under ADMINISTRATION > TOOLS > DEFINE LANGUAGES and in the file there called english.php is the following information for my clients website. This is located at the bottom of the text box area. If this is not there then that might be your problem. Otherwise I probably give up.

require(DIR_WS_LANGUAGES . $language . '/' . 'loginbox.php');



The text inside the /* and the */ just information located there for you information and does not appear on the site.


Hope this helps.

You are missing more than the footer.

I would open your index.php in any editer and check to be sure you have code below

<!-- right_navigation //-->


this is what is on a stock version of index.php

<!-- right_navigation //-->

<?php require(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'column_right.php'); ?>

<!-- right_navigation_eof //-->




<!-- body_eof //-->


<!-- footer //-->

<?php require(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'footer.php'); ?>

<!-- footer_eof //-->




<?php require(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'application_bottom.php'); ?>


Also, this can be caused by an infobox not working correctly. I would double check your includes/column_right.php file and the first infobox listed on that page to be sure they are both as they are suposed to be.

Thanks Tim,


The copyright information has been left intact. I made sure of that. This is my 4th OsCommerce store and I don't know why I am having this problem.


Thanks again.
