Text is added to these pages by altering the text in your includes/what ever your language/shipping.php file.

 

The origial shipping file looks something like

 

<?php

/*

$Id: shipping.php 1739 2007-12-20 00:52:16Z hpdl $

define('NAVBAR_TITLE', 'Shipping & Returns');

define('HEADING_TITLE', 'Shipping & Returns');

 

define('TEXT_INFORMATION', 'Put here your Shipping & Returns information.');

?>

 

You need to delete the folowing text so it ends up looking like

 

define('TEXT_INFORMATION', '');

 

Now add whatever text you require where you deleted the text from.

 

define('TEXT_INFORMATION', 'YOUR TEXT GOES HERE.');

 

its the same for the other files you want to modify.

Steve,

 

I have the same question as Aaron but am totally lost. How do i even get to the place where I can edit the text in the first place? If I go to the online catalog, and click on "Shipping and Returns" it will not let me change anything. If I go to the Admin backend, I have searched everywhere with NO luck to find out where I can modify that particular text. Can you help me? Confused in Colorado...

it should be in /catalog/includes/languages/ "the language you want to edit" english or german for example.

 

look for a file called shipping.php, then download it and edit it in a free php.editor before reuploading it to the same location.

I have a few web sites and am reasonably familiar with altering things, but have to say that I find this difficult. The Admin part of the shop is very good, but could do with a simple way of altering these policy statements. Is that a possibility in the development?

Just the way it is with OSC - you have to get used to altering files. There are modifications that let you modify the files you mention from admin - but again you would need to modify the files to install the mods.

 

Personally I use Filezilla to download and upload files and Notepad ++ to modify the php files - both are free and easy to use.

 

Thanks

Now running on a fully modded, Mobile Friendly 2.3.4 Store with the Excellent MTS installed - See my profile for the mods installed ..... So much thanks for all the help given along the way by forum members.

If your hosts have cpanel installed you can also edit files there, but it is better to copy the files to your computer, edit them and then upload then back.

 

Before editing any files create a backup first.
