How to post text on the osCommerce Page?


Guest

Recommended Posts

Ok here I am doing my osCommerce shopping cart and have my regular dot com redirected to the osCommerce Page.

 

How do I add text to that page?

 

For example, when you go to the page, the following is what I have copied and pasted (what is in bold is the actual copy and paste.

 

What's New Here? What's New Here?

This is a default setup of the osCommerce project, products shown are for demonstrational purposes, any products purchased will not be delivered nor will the customer be billed. Any information seen on these products is to be treated as fictional.

 

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.

Editing Page Texts

 

The text shown here can be modified in the following file, on each language basis:

 

[path to catalog]/includes/languages/english/index.php

 

That file can be edited manually, or via the Administration Tool with the Languages->English->Define or Tools->File Manager modules.

 

The text is set in the following manner:

 

define('TEXT_MAIN', 'This is a default setup of the osCommerce project...');

 

The text highlighted in green may be modified - it is important to keep the define() of the TEXT_MAIN keyword. To remove the text for TEXT_MAIN completely, the following example is used where only two single quote characters exist:

 

define('TEXT_MAIN', '');

 

More information concerning the PHP define() function can be read here.

Securing The Administration Tool

 

It is important to secure the Administration Tool as there is currently no security implementation available.

Online Documentation

 

Online documentation can be read at the osCommerce Knowledge Base site.

 

Community support is available at the osCommerce Community Support Forums site.

 

 

Now I would like it to read welcome to the site blah, blah, blah....My own info on there.

I have gone through the configurations on down and cant seem to find it.

As Ive said, I am NEW so a walk through may be needed OR guidance to the right direction will be most appreciated :)

 

Thanking you in advance.
