You need to update the index.php file in the Admin folder. There is code in there within an array that in my version starts around line 113 (my version from snapshot 20030514 and file is dated 2003/02/14) and looks like this:


$heading[] = array('params' => 'class="menuBoxHeading"',

                    'text'  => 'osCommerce');

 $contents[] = array('params' => 'class="infoBox"',

                     'text'  => '<a href="http://www.oscommerce.com" target="_blank">' . BOX_ENTRY_SUPPORT_SITE . '</a><br>' .

                                '<a href="http://www.oscommerce.com/community.php/forum" target="_blank">' . BOX_ENTRY_SUPPORT_FORUMS . '</a><br>' .

Hope that helps,



If I build it...they will come.

If I don't try to build it.....I will never know!

You could either remove that code or modify it to provide access to the section in admin.
