can you point out to me where the define is in your english.php as I do not see it, I do however see this define

define('BOX_HEADING_CATALOG', 'Catalog');
should this not be your catalog/includes/languages/english.php instead of your admin/includes/languages/english.php


where is your issue in the catalog left column or the admin left column

Ok then one last time is the issue in the catalog with the left hand column where it says categories


If the answer is yes then post catalog/includes/languages/english.php


If the answer is no then is the issue in the admin panel left hand column where it says configuration and catalog

THANKS!! I now have the right english.php in the right location :-)


Yes, the site is slow! Is it trying to load all images from the database or just the images on the first page? If it's just the first page I guess I'll have to try optimizing again. Either that, or, maybe it's the graphics in the header and right column.


Any sugguestions would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks again!
