Index help

Recommended Posts

I know i'm new at all this. I know how to write regular http, but not php. I can change things in includues/languages/english/index.php but not anywhere else.

 

I would like to add things to Shipping & Returns, Privacy Policy...etc. Is there some other place that I need to go to change and add all this. Or is there something that I have to download to make these changes.

 

Confused M

 

p.s. I had a problem earlier with changing something in index.php, the heading title and all that. But now my page is telling me:

 

Parse error: parse error in /home/wintunje/public_html/catalog/includes/languages/english/index.php on line 33

 

and so my pages for my items are just saying TABLE_HEADING_NEW_PRODUCTS

 

HELP!!!

In the same place you found index.php (cat/includes/lang/eng/*.*) you can find conditions.php and privacy.php and all the other files you'll need to "customize" for your site.

 

Its all straightforward, the lang/filename corresponds to the filename that is calling it, IE index.php calls lang/index.php, so on and so forth.

 

Parse error: Sounds like you missed a semi, comma, or apostrophe ( ; , ' ) somewhere.

 

define ( ' SOMETHING ' , ' Blah blah blabbity blah ' ) ;

 

*extra spaces are there so you can see what each line needs.

 

So the the file says:

 

<?php echo SOMETHING; ?>

 

Surf to it it says:

 

Blah blah blabbity blah

 

HTH

9 times out of 10 its a PEBCAK Error (Problem exists between chair and keyboard)

 

Replace that and you're fine...

More simply put for the laehman out there, go to your catalog/includes/languages/english/privacy.php or conditions.php or shipping.php and make the necessary changes to those files for your specific cart needs.

You either deleted one of the ' marks in the string, i.e.

 

define('TEXT_INFORMATION', 'text goes here');  or

 

you did the fatal error of not deliniating the apostrophe in a word, i.e.

 

define('TEXT_INFORMATION', 'Hi there all you great people's');

should be

 

define('TEXT_INFORMATION', 'Hi there all you great people\'s');

 

Good luck
