I have just installed the contribution "information_unlimited" and am having problems. Before I installed this contribution, I was trying to make my own custom info pages when someone told me it is not as easy as I think it is. So now I installed this contribution and it works in the admin area. The problem though is it doesn't link to the page i tell it to. This is what I mean (Please look at my website to see what I mean)




Thank you.

It does link to the page or you have gotten a 404 error. You have used a .php extension, is your file content php content? Post code.

Whoever told you that making your own information pages would be difficult was either stupid, misinformed or just trying to rip you off.


Here's the exact process I followed to create a custom info page for a client who makes customized products. It's not all that hard.


Copy shipping.php from his server onto my hard drive.

Rename it to custom_products.php

Edit it, change the word "shipping" to "custom products" wherever it occurs. Make sure to match case on the variables - if it was SHIPPING then it needs to be CUSTOM_PRODUCTS.

Save and send it back.

Copy includes/languages/english/shipping.php to my hard drive.

Rename it to custom_products.php.

Edit the file and change the appropriate information.

Save and upload.

Edit includes/languages/english.php.

Copy the line that says define('SHIPPING_WHATEVER','Shipping');

Change the copy to define('CUSTOM_PRODUCTS_WHATEVER', 'Custom Products');

Save and upload.

Edit includes/boxes/information.php

Copy the line that creates the link for shipping.

Paste it directly below, change "shipping" to "custom products"

Save and upload

Edit includes/filenames.php

Add a line like this: define('FILENAME_CUSTOM_PRODUCTS', 'Custom Products');

Save and upload.

Reload your site.


I think that covers all the steps...it sounds a whole lot more difficult than it is.
