The e-commerce.

Making changes


Recommended Posts



I need to make some changes to osCommerce but I have no idea on where to start.


The changes are in the customer sign up process. I live in australia so our dates and addresses are entered differently.


I would like to change the date to DD/MM/YYYY

I would also like to change the address to

Address 1 *

Address 2

City *

State *

Postcode *


How do I go about this? Please keep in mind that I am a complete novice with PHP and SQL.


Any help would be appreciated!

You can change the order of the fields in the sign up process by editing includes/modules/account_details.php. It's basically an HTML table with some php mixed in. Just take sections starting with <tr> and ending with </tr> and move them around. The text labels of the fields can be changed by editing the defines in includes/languages/english.php. I think the date format can be changed there too, but I haven't tried it.

In olden times the men were made of iron and the ships were made of wood; now it's the other way around. :wink:
