Ok, I got the site up and running, only took me 6 days. Thanks for everything people have posted in the past, as that has helped me out a lot.

There are just a few issues I am trying to figure out, and can't seem to find the answers yet.

1. Is there a description somewhere that explains what needs to be placed in the OpenSearch module in the Admin section of the site. Not all the code stuff, but something that explains each box in the Admin section for this module.

2. I'm trying to get the site out there and get customer's in, but to be honest, I do not know code, and all the talks of meta tags and such, has confused the heck out of me. Is there other options?

The web site is: www.RonisRingsNThings.com.

Hi all,

i am a total noob to ecommerce, just need a bit of a jump start. I have :
changed the company logo
added stock and prices
changed currencies, all ok, really like it so far.

Now i would like to :

install a free template from the contributions that I have downloaded as a zip file. . Please give me steps..

and

increase the space in my header area for my company logo. probably a header.php edit?

and

is it possible to later add discount coupon codes to my site? How?


thanx in advance,
Wes

oscommerce 2.2-MS2 is very outdated, it requires an old version of php and MySQL on the server, I strongly advise you to use the latest version of osC.

If you have purchased a template based on MS2, go back for a refund. The latest is 2.3.1

Note MS2 has many security issues, so if you persist with it (and your host is happy keep their server degraded to support it) make sure you apply all the security measures detailed in the pinned thread in the 2.x security forum

Hi Guys,

I need to change the box header colour to something else. I have edited the stylesheet.css file in /catalog/stylesheet.css

I change the infobox background to #ff0000; but nothing happened.

Is it stored somwhere else.

Regards Bruce

What I changed it to.

.infoBox {
background: #FF0000;
}

.infoBoxNotice {
background: #FF0000;
}

.infoBoxNoticeContents {
background: #FF0000;
font-family: Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;
font-size: 10px;
}

TD.infoBoxHeading {
font-family: Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;
font-size: 10px;
font-weight: bold;
background: #FF0000;
color: #FFFFFF;
}

TD.infoBox, SPAN.infoBox {
font-family: Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;
font-size: 10px;
}

Click the "Headers already sent" link in my signature.
If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.

Ok.

Have managed to add them to the list in the information box

when you hover they show a file location of fair.php which I have added to \includes\languages\english directory but when I click on the link it comes up with a 404 error page not found. Maybe I need to add something into a database or similar. QAny clues are much appreciated.

HOW TO ADD ITEMS TO THE INFORMATION BOX

HEY I MUST BE LUCKY OR THOROUGH ONE OF THE TWO.

I figured it out by doing the following.

add these lines to the \includes\filenames.php file

define('FILENAME_ABOUT', 'about.php'); // change about to whatever suits you I used about for "About us" and fair for "Fair Trading."

define as many as you need.


Then modify \includes\modules\boxes\bm_information.php

add the following line at about line 43

' <a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_ABOUT) . '">' . MODULE_BOXES_INFORMATION_BOX_ABOUT . '</a><br />' .

copy the line above it and simply change the name to whatever you like making sure it matches all the names you have already used.

again add as many as you need.

Then modify \includes\languages\english\modules\boxes\bm_information.php

add the following line at about line 43

' <a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_ABOUT) . '">' . MODULE_BOXES_INFORMATION_BOX_ABOUT . '</a><br />' .

copy the line above it and simply change the name to whatever you like making sure it matches all the names you have already used.

again add as many as you need.

Then create your \includes\languages\english\about.php file detailing your about us or whatever information. A good trick here is to copy a file like conditions.php and then edit it to suit.

create a file for each type of information you have added.

I hope this is accurate and of help to some people.

Regards Bruce
