Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone new what files I need to take out if I want to remove the "welcome guest" "Create new account" text off my main page?


I went to public_html/catalog/default.php but could not find what I need to take out.



If someone can help me I would appreciate it.

Text General Changes



Most of the text changes on each page are located in the catalog/includes/english folder


Q: Is there a place to change what the text says when a new customer signs up and/or purchases a product and then gets the email?

A: That would be /languages/english/create_account_process.php


Q: How do you edit the copyright footer text and link, and the color of the word

"required" text next to the boxes on the "My Account" page?

A: /catalog/includes/languages/english.php at the very bottom of the page

This is the default color of the word "required" #AABBDD


Q: How do you change the default.php introduction and welcome text?

A: catalog/includes/languages/english/default.php

Thank you for your help, you gave me a lot of usefull information that I have used. But I still can not find where you change the "welcome guest and create a new account" that comes standard at the top of the default page.


We want to change this, it is turning some people off knowing that they have to create an account to purchase. We told want them to know this till they have their items in their cart.


So if anyone can point me into the right direction I will be gratefull.
