The e-commerce.

Editing the main part of the site- not cart


Recommended Posts



You are using a template so any replies you get will be educated guesses. So, my guess is, you have a column box added to the left column which is linked to your blog. Find the box, edit it. If you are just looking to edit the text 'Diary of a housewife', a properly coded site would have that text defined in a language file presumably in the /includes/english/ sub-directory. If you are trying to replace/ edit the image, a properly coded template would have the image located in the /images/ sub-directory.

Thanks so much for your response... I have looked their and of course no such luck. I also went to - includes/left_column.php and it is not there....


you say- " If you are just looking to edit the text 'Diary of a housewife', a properly coded site would have that text defined in a language file presumably in the /includes/english/ sub-directory" and alas... no sub-directory in their...


I did find the area that the "box" that says Diary is located-- but weirdly not the text line..... it is the following- does this help us to sort it out.--- Thanks again~

This line:


$info_box_contents[] = array('text' => BOX_HEADING_DIARY);


would suggest the text is pulled from the database which, under normal circumstances mean that the text is entered in the admin area somewhere. I would say look at your osCommerce admin area for that text. Perhaps under the banner manager ????? (just a guess)

I checked there an no luck. Thanks for all your advice! If you have any other guesses feel free to let me know. Much appreicated!


look in


includes/boxes folder and see if you can find the box file for that particular one.


or try includes/languages/english.php


since you are on an older oscommerce, you need to look for where your box headings are being defined.


its might be in that english.php file.
