Hello again,

 

I Sharon am finding it very hard to edit the home page. I see this there [path to catalog]/includes/languages/english/index.php I have gone to the files and searched for this one. It is not there for me to find. All I seem to find is file from over 2 years back. May I please have some help here. Thanks very much in advance for this.

Sharon > Where are you looking for the file?

How do you know it's 2 years old (has it just started talking!)?

Hiya,

You need to edit the index file located in ... wait for it!

 

Catalog > includes > languages > english (or your language) > index.php

 

It has to be there!

 

Regards

Nic

Unless you have a template, then anything can happen.

I have my site with ipower.com they changed the building format a few years ago. When I go to the files there are the old ones from the previous site. I would only hope you would be more understanding when someone is stressed out over things as confusing as these are. I would always try to be respectful to others when asking for help. I think your ass to ask me if they are talking. But hay I am the one pissed right now so i'll just let that go. Thanks

I asked you simple questions to try and narrow down what your problem actually is but obviously you don't seem to understand humour either.

If you are getting that mad then you must be close to solving it!

We have all been there its how you learn. You have to understand that we only go on what you say initially so we need to try and narrow it down, and a bit of humor is a good thing here.

what is your URL? it will help for us to look at it and then it may seem clearer.

Regards

I can truly understand the humor as well. I have been trying over a few months to get my site to look better. I have gone from site delux to working on another template. Then calling site help leaves me on hold hours at a time to ask for help. I am sleep deprived as a result of all this. My site is very ugly to me and the fact of me not getting the paypal buttons to stop increasing the boxes. I had to try to find another hosting company. Which I am due to renew next month. Now My site is no showing os at this time. It's not done to publish yet. http://www.giftsandbags.com

 

I thank you for the help. Being that I am not understanding exactly what I am needing here. I am not sure exactly how I should ask the question. So what I can do is this best I can here ok. Thanks for your understanding as well.

 

This is on the top of my home page. I did get it removed from my site help but it came back some how.

 

Warning: I am able to write to the configuration file: /home/users/web/b1982/ipw.giftsand/public_html/occommerce/includes/configure.php. This is a potential security risk - please set the right user permissions on this file.

 

 

This is on the home page as well. I looked as well as site help for the files that had this. There were nothing there with these words. 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.

 

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.

 

Thanks for the help I am truly getting tired of asking questions every where/ Is there a posible number I can call to speak live with someone from oscommerce help desk? Thanks so much

I must have missed where it would have started talking. That may be where I went wrong. Over all I am doing what I can to get help and thank you for the laugh. When this stupid site of mine is finally done. I might come back and laugh at it. For now i'll just copy and paste this to my other forum and hope they can find the humor in this. Thanks for the wonderful help. I don't know what I would do without it. Have a blessed day

Sharon ... have you got children or do you know anyone with a 2 year old? Around that time they start talking and most people call their OSC store their 'baby'.

 

Leave your site alone, get some sleep and look at it with fresh eyes tomorrow.

"/public_html/occommerce//admin" huh? do you mean: /public_html/oscommerce/admin ?

 

You need to check that the main osc folder is oscommerce and not occommerce, check your config files for the double // (before admin

Change your admin folder to something more unknown (and update the config files to match)

The file you are looking for will be, going by what you have posted above:

/public_html/occommerce//includes/languages/english/index.php - If it isn't there you either haven't uploaded all the relevant file sor you are using a template.

 

Either way GET SOME SLEEP AND WORRY ABOUT TOMORROW!

 

Oh ... and BTW - There is no phone number for OSC, it's open source software built and developed by everyone (or am I the only one never to be invited to the OSC global headquarters?).

occommerce now there is something with that on my site. I have found some links to read on this site. I will try to get this done. I am not able to sleep so that won't be a problem. I will be up for the nicht. Thanks very much for the help. I have to now find somewhere to learn computer language. I may have found someone to just do it for me as well. Thanks very much.

Thanks very much I am going there a sap.

Exceuse in ignorance I am not grasping the computer terms here. Is there anything that I can see where they have someone talking and going step by step. Reading it is getting me no where becasue I have no clue what is being talked about. I found the style sheet but know nothing about what I am reading inside it. Thanks a bunch
