The e-commerce.

Adding forum link/button and sponsor area to header


Recommended Posts

Hey guys

Basically with our site we have sponsored a few cars (performance parts website)

I am wanting to know how if possible i would go about adding a "Sponsored Cars" link/button and a "Forum" link within my domain.

Like this:



Basically with the sponsored link i would like it to head to a page where i can just use html to edit the page.


With the forum link i would need it to be linked to a forum which i can administrate.

Does osCommerce have free software for a forum?


I and every web designer i have spoken to has no idea how to do this

any help would be greatly appreciated.


Is there also any way that an image can be used as the background that will resize depending on screen res selected by user?

Basically the site is in need of an overhaul and update and having these features is now becoming a great need.


Thanks, Aaron

Just edit the includes/header.php file and add in the links.


If u want the page that you will link to, to have the same layout as your osComerce pages you will wont be able to do this in pure html, it will have to be in php.


As far as i am aware oscomerece doesnt have a forum facility but there are plent of free scripts on the web just do a google search.


I hope i have understood and answered your question

To go into more description if needed in includes/header.php


<?php if (tep_session_is_registered('customer_id')) { ?>

After simply add

<a href="/the link to your forums">Forums</a>    |    <a href="/your sponsor link">Sponsored Cars</a>    |

Guys the help is much appreciated.

The coding above was put in with no change.

I definately dont know enough about php to be able to understand how the above will also provide the text to make in the header bar and its allignment properties, text colour etc.

If the stylesheet options automatically sorts out new additions then that is understood however nothing changed in the title bar.

Are there any reputable oscommerce modifiers available for hire?
