Want to remove the following from opening page: Welcome Guest! Would you like to log yourself in? Or would you prefer to create an account? I feel that it discourages someone from looking. information is required at checkout.

 

What file is this located in?

 

Thanks

Greg

Please see if this helps (the following text would have appeared on your original osCommerce, before editing, but perhaps you have deleted it:

Welcome Guest! Would you like to log yourself in? Or would you prefer to create an account?

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 Wiki Documentation Effort site.

 

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

 

If you wish to download the solution powering this shop, or if you wish to contribute to the osCommerce project, please visit the support site of osCommerce. This shop is running on osCommerce version osCommerce 2.2-MS2.

Good luck, Lana.

<td class="main"><?php echo tep_customer_greeting(); ?></td>

in a default install it would be catalog/index.php
