The e-commerce.

Recommended Posts

Dear Forum,


I installed Traduccion espanol utf-8 v2.3.4 by following the instructions strictly. I have not changed anything in my own.


Now, to me everything looks and works fine so far, except two things:


1. Minor problem: The Spanish icon is smaller than the English icon.

2. Major problem: The 3 buttons "cart contents" "checkout" "my account" on the top right hand side slip down when the Spanish language is used.

I am hoping someone will kindly take a look at http://www.mccpower.com or at the attached screen shot, and perhaps recommend a solution?



Best regards,

Your logo is a bit big and pushing things out of alignment many ways to fix


below is a stylesheet.css  fix so just change


or make the logo not quite so wide


as regards the icon the Spanish 20px × 14px is simply smaller than English 24px × 15px


so increase the Spanish to 24px

#header {
  height: 90px;

#storeLogo {
  float: left;
  margin-top: 10px;

#headerShortcuts {
  float: right;
  margin-top: 60px;

Hi John,


Thank you so much for your prompt reply and solution.


Just to make sure I understand, are you saying my logo is too wide and is therefore pushing the buttons over the edge to a second row in Spanish?


I am sorry for being so ignorant, but is the stylesheet.css you recommended an already existing file that I shall change?

Yes exactly the logo is a bit wide simply not enough space


You do have a lot of white space between the pics so you could simply change whatever you feel most comfortable with


Your stylesheet you will find in catalog/stylesheet.css  this is what controls a lot of your sites appearance


To edit files in oscommerce you need an ftp program(fillezilla is good) and free and you need a text editor notepad++ is good and free


so you would download the stylesheet.css to your computer then open with notepad++ and make the changes


Now you should always have a back up before attempting any file changes in oscommerce in case you make a mistake so you can revert back to a working store.

I am really grateful for your advice.


Thank you so much.




Hello Christiane,


Another easy solution would be to translate "Cart Contents" with "Ver Cesta" instead of "Contenido de la cesta" and change "MI CUENTA" to "Mi Cuenta".

This will keep the buttons shorter to fit them in the available space.

The button text is defined in: catalog/includes/languages/espanol.php

Hi Rainer,


Thank you for taking time to respond.

I already changed everything according to John's advice. I changed the logo to 500x50px. I had to do that anyhow, since the reference to the image used was missing.

I also created a new Spanish icon, since the original one was a mess in 24px. Everything funzt perfectly :D.


Have a great Sunday.
