Currently using osCommerce 2.3.1 and wish to add the currency module into the header but not sure how.

I have searched Google and so many user's have asked the same however the responses have referred to inclues/column_left.php. This file DOES NOT EXIST in my source files...

Can anyone inform me on how to place or relocate boxe modules into different parts of the site?

The reason being is I am creating my own template and don't want to ruin the osCommerce code with custom additions etc...


Note: I have disabled the boxes through the Admin/Modules/Boxes page by clicking on False where it states;

Do you want to add the module to your shop?

This is exactly covered in the commercially available ebook.

It is also covered for free at the blog of @multimixer.

This is a signature that appears on all my posts.  It is not specifically aimed at you.

 

IF YOU MAKE A POST REQUESTING HELP...please state the exact version of osCommerce that you are using. THANKS

i dont have an ebook reader (i dont want one) and i dont normally go to any personal blog sites - dont have the time. so no idea what its like but i guess mine could be different. for the time being i take it as theres one already unless someone says not what they want.

You can also do this with the Header-Footer Content Modules Addon, which has a Currencies module along with several others.

Isn't there a way to edit the Boxes modules, can I just create my own box module and add it via the Admin area?

yes you can but editting the boxes or creating your own would not make it to the header there is no code reading boxes in the header.

Instructions to create a new box are here. The Addon I linked to in my previous post adds the module code to the header, so you can add your own modules there if you want.
