Can someone advise me on how to change the "New Products for December" to show only 3 instead of 9.

 

Also, is there anyway for me to edit the text "New Products for December" to whatever I want.

 

Thank you, thank you.

Change the number of products in your new products box:

1) Go to your admin tool ... www.yoursite.com/admin, or www.yoursite.com/catalog/admin, or whatever. Log in.

 

2) Click "configuration"

 

3) Click "maximum values"

 

4) Highlight "New Products Module" and edit the number from the default 9 to 3.

 

Further information about controlling the number of columns can be found here: http://www.oscommerce.info/kb/57

 

Change the text in the new products box:

1) You must change the coding in (catalog)/includes/languages/english/index.php.

 

The default is:

define('TABLE_HEADING_NEW_PRODUCTS', 'New Products For %s');

 

Change to:

define('TABLE_HEADING_NEW_PRODUCTS', 'whateveryouwant %s');

 

The %s spits out the month, so take it or leave it.

 

2) You can do this by going to your admin tool, and clicking on "localization", then "languages". When English is highlihighted, click "details", and then click "index.php" and change it there, assuming your permissions are set properly.

 

3) The other way to edit this is to open it up in a PHP editor like the one I use: http://www.mpsoftware.dk/phpdesigner.php and edit it there, and then upload to the proper directory in your server using your FTP utility.

 

Good luck.
