Modules Name Display Issue


Recommended Posts

I posted this a while back but havn't gotten any replies so I thought I would try once more. My original message:


Hey, I've been working on a store for the company I'm working with over the last few weeks and all has been well (osc rocks) but recently some of my modules have been acting up. I have been installing and modifying addons to customize the store the way I need but about a week ago the names of the various modules haven't been displaying correctly.


For instance, I have a fedex shipping module installed and in the shipping method selection, the options come up just fine, calculate the shipping costs and apply them to the order total but the name of the shipping option as well as the name of the module in the backend displays as "MODULE_SHIPPING_FEDEXZIPZONES_TEXT_TITLE (Ground Service):" rather than the 'clean' version of the name. This is also happening with some other modules, however the shipping mods are the only ones where customers can see the problem.


I'm baffled and don't really have a good idea of when/why the problem started in the first place. Can someone try and point me in the right direction.


BTW, we are attempting to launch the store within the next couple weeks before the IBC tradeshow in Amsterdam so some help would be much appreciated.

Dont know if this helps but I had a similar problem because I had MODULE_shipping instead of MODULE_SHIPPING


(I mean that you have to define the modules and files with CAPITAL letters)

any text that looks like that is calling on a DEFINE from a language file.


Look at the instructions again and it will probably tell you where you were SUPPOSED to define that language.


You can start by looking in catalog/includes/languages/english.php, then maybe ...english/shipping.php

Thanks alot! Someone DOES love me. :)


I double checked the instructions for instillation of that shipping module and there was nothing about modifying the language file but I added a 'define' for it and it worked like a charm.


On a side note, does anyone know how to get rid of the number that precedes the name of the shipping module in the shipping option selecter deally? I only have one shipping module active right now and it displays a '0' in front of the name.

Try \includes\languages\english\modules\shipping\xxx.php where xxx is the name of the module you have activated.
