Modification questions


Recommended Posts

Hi there,


As a newbie I still have figured out some stuff but I still have the following questions concerning the customisation of osC:


First of all how can I add the login possibility to the navigation/ breadcrum bar (next to "my account")?


Secondly: what is the right way to customize the images used; replacing them with your own using the osC name??


Finally: what is the correct way to alter the left and right colom; cut and paste code and/ or out comment items??


Thanks for your help!

I'm looking for the same answers too. I have been messing around with the codes and see what it does. In the demo I manage to delete the currency box and the language box. Those I don't need. Other than that I'm still experimenting.

One thing I want to change is the Category box. I want to change the heading from "Categories" to Products. Also I would like to add another box below with few topics/links just like the Information box.

That wiki site doesn't hold the information I want either :(


And I did search the forum but couldn't find the right answers...



The only thing I did find was where to alter the right and left colum boxes (indeed cut and paste). So if you could help us on those other items I would be thankful

Question 1) I just want to add the ability to login placed on the header/ navigation bar next to "my account". I know the bar is located in the header.php but what is the code I need to add that item?


Question 2) For obvious reasons I don't want to use the pictures the default shop uses. So HOW do I replace them? Make new ones and rename them to the original names??


I can't put it any clearer than this :(

ok in reply to number 2 about changing the default pics


check this page out


Page here



the above page has all the names of the images ( button sets ) so you just create that name it with the same name and upload to




this as far as the buttons are concerned


for the rest of the pics

just download the pics from the catalog/images thing and open them in acdsee or photoshop and see what they look like create a new one and name it with the same thing


for the first quiestion now

open header.php


go down find this

<?php if (tep_session_is_registered('customer_id')) { ?>
   <a href="<?php echo tep_href_link(FILENAME_LOGOFF, '', 'SSL'); ?>" class="headerNavigation">
   <?php echo HEADER_TITLE_LOGOFF; ?></a>  |  <?php } ?>



and add this below it


<?php if (!tep_session_is_registered('customer_id')) { ?>
   <a href="<?php echo tep_href_link(FILENAME_LOGIN, '', 'SSL'); ?>" class="headerNavigation">
   <?php echo HEADER_TITLE_LOGIN; ?></a>  |  <?php } ?>



hope it works

Hi Guys, quick question: when youre putting the login option in the header like that - does it mean that 'log-off' gets removed from your header - or are you managing to keep both, as obviously it would be desireable to keep the log-off option for the customer as well?- Sean :)
