The e-commerce.

New Store...I can't fix main page


Recommended Posts



I have followed the instructions here http://www.digitalfishhost.com/support/osC..._osCommerce.htm exactly but where the instructions show


Any line that starts with "define" can be edited, for example:

define('HEADING_TITLE', 'What\'s New Here?') could be changed to:

define('HEADING_TITLE', 'Welcome to Our Store!')

Don't touch anything else in blue unless you know what you are doing!

Open default.php using WordPad:




define('TEXT_MAIN', 'This is a demonstration online-shop, <b>any products purchased will not be delivered nor billed</b>. Any information seen on these products are to be treated fictional.<br><br>If you wish to download this sample shop, or to contribute to this project, please visit the <a href="http://oscommerce.com"><u>support site</u></a>. This shop is based on <font color="#f0000"><b>' . PROJECT_VERSION . '</b></font>.');

define('TABLE_HEADING_NEW_PRODUCTS', 'New Products For %s');

define('TABLE_HEADING_UPCOMING_PRODUCTS', 'Upcoming Products');

define('TABLE_HEADING_DATE_EXPECTED', 'Date Expected');


I cannot find this code in those files, so I have NO clue how to get rid of the "demonstration"


If I'm totally off base, how do I make my store go live?

I had the same problem as you and after several hours of searching I found the correct file to update.


The tutorial you quoted stated to open the default.php file to make the changes, however, it failed to mention which default.php.


It's not the main default.php in the /catalog directory.


It's the default.php found in /catalog/includes/languages/english/


Once you open this default.php file, the information you want to change is right at the top.


Good Luck,
