Recommended Posts

hi,

 

Can a link to a .html file be added to the catagories box as a catagory, if so how?

 

Thank you

 

I will need to add a new box with help links! one quick question, can I add links to none php files in simple html tags to my box, I have no experience in .php. I tried following the directions on how to creat a new box and just could not do it.

You can use "normal" html for external links but for internal linking, you should use the osCommerce tep_href_link() function to maintain a user session, should their browser not accept your cookie.

Without wanting to sound condescending, adding a new box and links isn't that difficult, if you use the knowledge base tutorial. What part are you having difficulty with?

Nothing obviously wrong there. What error message do you get?

 

As said before, using normal html anchors and html pages could lead to your users lose their session. They will get fed up with that if they have added to cart.

Just noticed you are using quotes around the link text - 'Quote Request'. Remove the quote marks.

 

 

EDIT: Also just noticed the string wasn't concatenated. I guess that is what the problem was.
