Editing the Information box

Recommended Posts

I've been looking through past post and can't get a handle on how to edit the "Information" box, ie., Shipping/Privacy/Conditions and especially the Returns, etc.

There is no "catalogue" within the includes/English folders

 

Would greatly appreaciate someone telling me where to look so I can make my edits.

 

westvinegiftgallery.com - site is coming along nicely... just need the little important stuff.

Thanks

Don

what do you want to do/change?

Web Developer, Firebug, and Notepad++ are powerful free tools for web design.

there is no catalog folder, and typically, I'd stay away from any admin folder changes

 

text is put exactly where I said above

 

note that it can also be done a few levels above at cat/shipping, but its better to do the prior

 

ALSO NOTE: you will need to do \ for all '...example: returns ship back to xyz company at buyer\'s expense...

 

I reccomend a read of some of the links in my signature, and beyond

Ok - tooka chance on a folder and found shipping/privacy and conditions.

Inserted text:

 

define('TEXT_INFORMATION', 'While we only charge a $5 Shipping fee, we have no control over what our manufactuers charges us. We absorb the bulk of shipping fees so that our cost to you, our customers stay low. At some point in the future should our cost increase, we will probably be forced to pass on some of those cost to you. <P>It is out intention to hold down cost in order that our merchandise charges are in competion with any other supplier you might have.<P>Thank you<br>Management');

?>

Save it and looked at my site from my laptop and there were no changes. It still says "Puthere your information"

Found that a bit weird but maybe I did not put this in the correct folder/php file.

I agree with you, drdon9, that in the 2.x version of OSCommerce Online Merchant there are no Catalog folders, and you won't find the privacy.php, conditions.php, shipping.php, or the contactus.php files embedded in subfolders of the Catalog folder in the install. If you haven't discovered yet how to modify the files that control these elements of the Information box in this application, I'm here to tell you that you were extremely close to doing so in your analysis of what you really have to do. The solution I found is instead of appending text (actually hypertext) information the TEXT-INFORMATION section of those files, you should replace those two words in each file with your text, then save the files and reload the page. This worked for me.
