Recommended Posts

BOTH of these can be edited in your shop/includes/languages/english.php (or catalog/includes/languages/english.php, depending on what version of osCommerce you have).


The "TEXT_GREET_GUEST" is somewhere around line 309, and the copyright information is at the very end of the file.

Pay close attention to the osCommerce copyright requirements as you make any changes concerning this: "Powered by osCommerce" is required to remain while you may alter the copyright information. (If I'm wrong on this, someone please correct me).

Good luck.

Good call...Additionally, Eric should be simply looking for "TEXT_GREET_GUEST" most importantly. It's on line 309 in my shop/includes/languages/english.php simply because of all the other defines that have been added (due to, of course, the addition of contributions).
