    I don't believe it

    I'm still trying to figure out why you would place a link on the oscommerce store's front page to "the main html shop" site then make Paypal buttons on the html site when oscommerce does everything for you........to edit the "front page" -called index page or index.php- go into your admin>tools>define languages. there you will see a list of php files. click on "index.php" and that controls the text in the body of the front page. there is where you add or edit the text. My suggestion to you would be the same as Ben said and start with the basic configuration of the store....don't jump back and forth from the index page to the Paypal module to making links....start one task and complete it then move onto the next. Also, do NOT put space between any code....that will screw up everything then you'll really be f***ed. This link is to the OsCommerce "Knowledge Base" >CLICK ME< and there is help for everything under the stock install broken down into topics for you to follow. It can be a bit confusing if you are new to OsCommerce.....I understand that....but if it is indeed too much for you to handle or if you don't have the time you can always hire someone to do it for you or go with a different e-commerce solution...there are alternatives that let you drag & drop all the features you want for your store and you don't need any html/php knowledge at all to make a store....the downside is that you MUST use the designs that are pre-made and extremely common and you have to pay for EVERYTHING. If I were you I would uninstall your store, re-install it and start with the knowledge base. if you get stuck on something look in the forum for a topic that states the same problem you are having....if you can't find one then create a new topic asking THE QUESTION YOU NEED AN ANSWER FOR....not "I don't believe it" because most people will ignore it.

    Any alternative sites to TemplateMonster?

    I've seen some sites that sell OSC templates and in the "details" section of the templates it says "oscommerce 2.2rc2a" so I'm guessing the template is using the new 2.2rc2a code and not the "milestone" oscommerce code right? I found a template that I really like and I'm pretty good with the customizations but if the code is all screwed up I'll just leave it alone.

    Daily Specials

    this sounds like a useful add-on, but does it work by itself or do I have to have one of the other add-ons already installed?

    New UPS XML Shipping Module available

    I just installed this module and during the checkout (during tests) one item shows as 6lbs. and if i have 4 or 5 small items it shows and charges for 2 packages at 7lbs. per package. am i missing something? Every single shipping module I've tried so fardoes not work and this is the first one that seems to work except for this thing with the weight and extra package issue. Please help!!

    Faq Desk

    okay, the install was cake, but where do the actual questions and answers go? I edited "faq.php" in the define languages in admin but when I saved it I got an error. also, since it says "click on question to reveal answer" I'm guessing that I need to add the questions and answers in one of the "english.php" files....??? can someone help me out please? ***edit-duh, nevermind.

    [Contribution] - USPS Methods

    okay, i installed my ENTIRE os commerce store with no problems whatsoever....and i just installed USPS methods. now, it seems to be working great except for one thing- no matter how many items are in my cart, the weight and shipping price stays the same. eg: one item weighs 0.3 lbs. and the shipping is $7.31. after i add another item to the cart that weighs 2.3 lbs (on top of the o.3 lbs.) the shipping price and weight remain the same. i fixed the tare weight so that can't be the problem. i am really anxious to open this new store and i just need to fix this minor problem before i can. should i edit the usps.php code to "oz." instead of "pounds"? please help!!
