The e-commerce.

Define pages (creating a new page)


Recommended Posts

Hello folks,


I haven't worked on this web site in nearly two years and I seem to have forgotten a lot.


I have created a new page in Content Manager / Page Manager / Define Pages. Note this may defer from other Oscommerce installs because of the large number of customizations that were done.


Now that I have created the new page, what is the page name so that I can link to it through a custom menu?


I have other pages created from 'Define Pages' and somehow I had determined the name of these pages in the past. Names, such as: news-I-3.html, music-c-5.html are successfully created and linked. I have done a directory search and these html files don't exist (even though the pages work). Are they dynamically generated???


Obviously, I understood this two years ago but now I am baffled.


Here is a except from main_page.tpl.php where one of these pages is called:

 <td><a href="/news-I-3.html" onMouseOut="MM_swapImgRestore()" onMouseOver="MM_swapImage('news','','images/news-on.gif',1)"><img src="images/news-off.gif" name="news" width="116" height="34" border="0"></a></td>


This particular page is created/edited in the 'Define Pages' section, however, I can assure you that "news-I-3.html" it doesn't exist anywhere as an actual file.


To recap, how do I determine the name of pages created in the 'Define Pages' section.


Thank you so much!

Wow! I guess no one knows?


I thought there would be a simple answer to this question.


Anyhow, it doesn't appear that I can use the 'define pages' section for a form. I tried pasting my form into this page (in HTML mode) and oscommerce doesn't accept all the html form code. It just removes much of the code (e.g. pull downs with 'option values' - all the values are displayed as plain text and no pull down).


Ultimately, I want to insert my custom page (form) into the oscommerce template. Perhaps there is another way to do this?
