  1. Thanks, Chris! :thumbsup: For the time being I guess I'll just go ahead and modify my column_left.php and leave the STS to some other time. - Wayne
  2. The Simple Template System certainly seems like it would be a very useful addition to my catalog but there's already another contribution (Header Tags Controller v2.6.3) incorporated into it and I was wondering if this would cause problems with the operation of either contribution or the installation of the STS. Some background information might be helpful: The Header Tags Controller was installed into a brand new catalog The only changes made since that installation was setting the permissions in catalog/includes/configure.php to 444 (to rid my home page of an error that stated: Warning: I am able to write to the configuration file: ***/htdocs/catalog/includes/configure.php. This is a potential security risk - please set the right user permissions on this file.) and removing the instructional text on the home page that comes with every new catalog My original intention was to just post a question, somewhere in these forums, asking how to insert a new info box into the left panel of each page. However, upon investigation it seems like the STS is the correct tool for this task. Is it?
  3. Thanks Jack. I think I'm slowly getting the 'hang of this', so to speak. Something else: To rid my catalog of the error stating: Warning: I am able to write to the configuration file: ***/htdocs/catalog/includes/configure.php. This is a potential security risk - please set the right user permissions on this file. (where '***' represents my domain), I just set the permissions of that file to 444. Will that interfere with the funtioning of the Header Tags Controller in any way? If so, is there a better fix you can recommend to get rid of that error?
  4. Jack, I went ahead and deleted my old catalog, installed a new one and incorporated the Header Tags Controller. The Header Tags section now shows up in the admin menu, as it should. :thumbsup: Just one question: My home page's title is Home Page - osCommerce: instead of just Home Page. Is this normal? I've searched these forums and found a post from someone with a similar situation back in 2005. At that time, you replied that that was fine (or words to that effect). But we're now in 2007 and I don't know if changes were made to the contribution since the time of that post that would make Home Page - osCommerce: indicate there's a problem with my installation. Is there?
  5. No, I don't have any other contributions installed but I do know what I did wrong - I uploaded files from the wrong admin folder (catalog/admin instead of catalog_for_new_shop_only/admin)! :blush: Look, to save any hassle, I'm going to delete my entire catalog and start over. It's no big deal because it's pretty new and no customers know about it as yet anyway. After that, I'll install the Header Tags Controller contribution. Thanks for your help, though. Cheers.
  6. Oops! That should have read: ...Well, from what I stated above, I didn't think my catalog could really have been considered to be clean (even though the Header Tags Controller contribution would have been my first one)...
  7. As one can see from the partial screen shot above, my admin menu is missing the Header Tags item. The catalog section of the contribution was installed correctly because its home page's title is "Home Page". So I must have made an error when installing the admin part. Where did I go wrong? My catalog is only days old and this is the first contribution I have attempted installing. Prior to attempting that install, I had made a few minor changes, all of which I can't recall but one was to do with changing the title of the home page. The Install_Catalog.txt file states in part: Well, from what I stated above, I didn't think my catalog could not really have been considered to be clean (even though the Header Tags Controller contribution would have been my first one). So, just to be on the safe side, instead of copying the files from the "catalog_for_new_shop_only" folder, I took the longer route. Unfortunately, this seems not to have worked.
  8. I know just how you feel, Laura. Pretty much my sentiments. I'm figuring since I was fortunate to do a fairly hassle free install of the default osC template, I don't want to tempt fate and mess things up. Perhaps sometime down the road when I'm more computer savvy, I'll give it a go.
