I would like to change a cpath

 

example:

the cpath in one of my categories menu is http://www.mysite.com/index.php?cPath=25

 

I would like to change it to:

http://www.mysite.com/index2.php

 

how can i do this?

 

being the novice I am, I'm pretty firmilar with the system and honestly I don't think this is possible, unless somehow you install a SEO contrib and change the name that way, but then again I'm not in that stage on my site yet, but I think that's how it's done. I just thought I'd give you an idea, seeing that noone has yet tp reply to you yet.

Well you can do it by finding the file that serves the link and check for the value that you want to change and change it. The problem with user modification is that everytime osCommerce updates you need to redo the code. If you have a reason for doing what you ask, maybe a better solution can be devised. Remember to document your changes so that you can find them later, if they are causing problems.

 

 

If you want to change the link in the categories box you need to

(1) Find and open it for editing this file "includes\boxes\categories.php"

(2) Find the following code - around line 27

    $categories_string .= tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT, $cPath_new) . '">';

(3) Replace it with the following code

	
              //modified to change index.php to index2.php for $counter =25 -  By Johnny Li
if ($counter != '25') {
    $categories_string .= tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT, $cPath_new) . '">';
} else {
	$fileName_user='index2.php';
    $categories_string .= tep_href_link($fileName_user, $cPath_new) . '">';
}
// end modified to change index.php to index2.php -  By Johnny Li

 

 

If you want to change the link in the categories list you need to

(1) Find and open it for editing this file "index.php" - in the catalog folder

(2) Find the following code - around line 104

    	  echo '                <td align="center" class="smallText" width="' . $width . '" valign="top"><a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT, $cPath_new) . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $categories['categories_image'], $categories['categories_name'], SUBCATEGORY_IMAGE_WIDTH, SUBCATEGORY_IMAGE_HEIGHT) . '<br>' . $categories['categories_name'] . '</a></td>' . "\n";

(3) Replace it with the following code

	
  // Change link for categoris_id=25 - Modified by Johnny Li
  if ($categories['categories_id'] != '25') {
   	  echo '                <td align="center" class="smallText" width="' . $width . '" valign="top"><a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT, $cPath_new) . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $categories['categories_image'], $categories['categories_name'], SUBCATEGORY_IMAGE_WIDTH, SUBCATEGORY_IMAGE_HEIGHT) . '<br>' . $categories['categories_name'] . '</a></td>' . "\n";
  } else {
     $fileName_cPath_3='index2.php';
     echo '                <td align="center" class="smallText" width="' . $width . '" valign="top"><a href="' . tep_href_link($fileName_cPath_3, $cPath_new) . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $categories['categories_image'], $categories['categories_name'], SUBCATEGORY_IMAGE_WIDTH, SUBCATEGORY_IMAGE_HEIGHT) . '<br>' . $categories['categories_name'] . '</a></td>' . "\n";
  }
 	  // end Change link for categoris_id=3 - Modified by Johnny Li
