Hi sorry for the dum question, how do I get rid of the default text that comes allready loaded on the screen when you first install osCommerce.


I would also like to put a picture in the place of the text or a Flash file. Is this possible if so how.


Please you will need to tell me wich files to open etc etc.

Before your read further, can you post the unedited english index.php text? I tried editing the main page and got an error message.



My question relates to yours. You can edit the main page by reading the defaul main page:


The text shown here can be modified in the following file, on each language basis:


[path to catalog]/includes/languages/english/index.php


That file can be edited manually, or via the Administration Tool with the Languages->English->Define or Tools->File Manager modules.


The text is set in the following manner:


define('TEXT_MAIN', 'This is a default setup of the osCommerce project...');


The text highlighted in green may be modified - it is important to keep the define() of the TEXT_MAIN keyword. To remove the text for TEXT_MAIN completely, the following example is used where only two single quote characters exist:


define('TEXT_MAIN', '');
