I am new to OScommerce... but recently built a site for a client...

www.spleather.com

 

The client is looking to be able to add text and updates to the front page... like "Hello, thanks for shopping with us...Check out our latest specials..." maybe add a picture or something, etc.

 

Want to know if there is some module or something that can easily be installed that will let them do this.

 

thanks

If you are offering professional osCommerce services then you should already know how to add the contributions to do what the client is asking for. You are obviously not qualified.

 

Having said that, I suggest installing Modular Front page for your client. Dynamic Information Pages would be another helpful tool for your client when creating product descriptions and editing information pages.

I did not know this was available, thanks for the info, I sure Brian found this useful as well.

It's not self-righteous at all. If you were the client and you hired someone to create an osCommerce store for, then found out the person you hired had NO IDEA what they were doing, wouldn't you feel a little ripped off ? Something as basic as front page editors and WYSIWYG shows that the OP has NO CLUE about osCommerce and should not be hired to create an osCommerce site. It is unfair to clients and more than likely they client will end up with an ill-coded cart.

In all respect, Brian was asking for a contribution that his client could use to add content to the front page. He is not asking for instructions on how to add content to the front page. Big difference.

 

ps what's a 'front page editor'. Do you mean that gawd awful MS Frontpage program?

Oh god no !! I mean something that has the ability to edit the index.php main text area from the admin side. The two aforementioned contributions do that very well.

 

This statement made by the OP specifically states the OP created a site for is client.

With that statement and the OP's lack of osCommerce knowledge, in my opinion, the OP should not be offering professional osCommerce services.

Yes, it is an opinion. You are making my point. It's self-righteous to assume you know best who should and should not be offering professional services for setting up a shopping cart written in php, html and javascript, especially when no one requested your opinion. You are making a lot of assumptions about Brian's level of experience from his single short, and respectful post. All I can see is that he is most likely unaware that there may be a module that offers what he is looking for, that he has created a decent, working OSCommerce site, and probably charged someone for it.

 

How about be nice and welcoming to a new person who has asked a perfectly appropriate question?

Yes, I am assuming the OP has no osCommerce experience. That is perfectly acceptable for the end user, but not someone who is offering professional services. People like the OP usually end up making the client wish they had never used osCommerce because of the quality of the site they receive from inexperienced 'developers' hacking away at osCommerce. Those clients often end up here with a thread title something like, "my website person no longer answers the phone and I need help to change.....". Or, "the person I hired messed up my site..I need help" or my favorite "osCommerce sucks, I can't even......."

 

 

However, in the future I will try to be be more diplomatic when telling unqualified service providers that they shouldn't be offering osCommerce services.
