How do I use contributions


Kruna

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I would like to know how to implement contributions, e.g. I would like to be able to enable/disable categories.

 

I go to the contributions page and find the following:

 

http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contri...able+categories

 

Which of the contributions do I have to chose, the latest one? In this case which one would it be?

Sorry for asking stupid, but I can't help myself...last week my webhost installed OSC and I am not familiar with programming, PHP, Codes, OSC, etc...I don't get it how to work with OSC, I really need a step-by-step explanation for dummies.

 

Anyway,...I download the contribution and save to a folder on my desktop..and then? Do I have to upload it again into the file-manager? In case I have to, in which folder do I have to upload it?

 

What do I have to do next? Replace the uploaded file or just replace the content or add it or else?

 

Please can somebody help me on that, I somehow got stucked in configuering my shop.

 

I appreciate any kind of help...

 

Many thanks in advance.

I'm new to, but the way I have done the ones I used is:

-download the contribution

-opne the text file which is the instructions

-if it has any extra images etc, upload them

-with the coding changes, I don't upload and overwrite with the new files as that has given me trouble. Instead, I locate the files to be adjusted, download them to my harddrive as a backup if something goes wrong

-open those downloaded files, adjust the code and save them with the same title (but don't overwrite your backups)

-upload them using anything BUT the file manager in store admin

 

hope that helps :)
