The e-commerce.

Use English if no text is available.


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


I wanted to know if it was possible to let osCommerce automatically show the English text if the other languages are not available.

What i mean is that if i would fill in the title of a product in English, and other languages would be left blank, the catalogue shows the English title instead of no title.

At this moment i am doing copy paste to the other languages, but it takes a lot of time when you have to add over a 100 of products.


I already browsed trough the contributions, but couldn't find anything.

Maybe i overlooked it,


Does anyone know a option,modification or contribution to make this possible?


Thank you,

If you aren't going to support the other languages, you can always disable them. What you want shouldn't be hard though, although I've never heard of a mod to do that. Find the product related queries and check the result to see if the description is blank. If it is, do another query but for langauage = english. There will be more than a few queries.


Good luck!

We use multiple languages on our webpage.

However, i have many items to add to the shop and i don't want to write every description 3 times.

So i hoped that if i entered only the english description, dutch and german would automaticly show the dutch description if dutch/german is not availible.
