    Thank you Bill, that was very helpful! I just deleted index.php_1_9.html and that page is now the same as the other pages.

    Oh! This is great! I was wondering how to do that, too. I didn't realize I would have to do it in Google, so thanks for this!

    Hardware > Mices - a different template? Hello! Should I be concerned that when I view Hardware > Mices, it accesses a different template (index.php_1_9.html) than all the other categories? The template I arranged looks like this: http://www.hellodoodle.com/index.php?cPath=1_4 And the Hardware > Mices template looks like the default osCommerce set up: http://www.hellodoodle.com/index.php?cPath=1_9 None of these default categories will exist when I am done setting everything up, but I am just curious about why that one doesn't use the sts_template.html all the other categories use. Thanks for any input you all can give me! ~ Jessica

    For more than a week now I've been looking for information on how to customize the $content element on all the main category pages (Hardware, Software, DVD Movies) and sub-category pages (Action, Cartoons, Comedy, etc.). On the main category pages, I want to remove the "New products for..." and on the sub-category pages I want to rearrange how the products are listed. I was hoping I would find instructions on how to do this in the same manner as how the $content element of the product pages are modified with the file product_info.php.html. My best guess is that those files, if they were to exist, would be category_info.php.html and subcategory_info.php.html. But, as far as I can tell, STS doesn't have that set up as is. Please tell me I'm wrong. Chastise me for not looking in the right places. Berate me for posting something that's been resolved a thousand times before. Then please, please tell me where to find instructions on how to do this. If I am not wrong, what solutions for me are there, if any, that do not require any PHP knowledge ('cuz I don't have any)? Thank youuuuu!!!

    I searched long and hard to find a way to put a quantity input textbox on the product info page and the STSv4 Power Pack didn't come up in any of my searches. I'm going to check it out right now. Thanks for the heads up!

    It helped me! Thank you, Herb! This puts a quantity input textbox into which shoppers can type the amount of a product they would like to add to the cart. And, for the benefit of others, the placeholder this code creates is $quantbox$

    I'm coming along pretty well with getting my site laid out how I want thanks to STS and the support here. :) Now I'm looking into customizing the content elements differently on the category pages and the sub-category pages. In the STS User Manual, I have read section 3.11 "Create content templates for any page," but it makes no sense to me. It's saying to do things with scripts, logic, and arrays, which are all foreign terms to me. I've also found the following posts which kind of relate to what I'm trying to do: http://forums.oscommerce.com/index.php?sho...p;#entry1325856 change $Content, Help plx http://forums.oscommerce.com/index.php?s=&...t&p=1179348 And I've read this document: Infobox Templates for use with the Simple Template System Version 4.2 (STS v4.2) User Manual But I am still confused. Is there a step-by-step explanation out there that will help me figure out how customize the content elements to do the following: 1. Remove the "New Products" box on the Category pages (the pages that shows for Hardware, Software, and DVD Movies) 2. Rearrange the way the products are shown in the content element when viewing a sub-category page such as on Hardware > Graphics Cards I've installed the STS Module "Product info" which I'm pretty sure is the first step, but what's next? I really have tried to find out how to do this by searching the information already out there, but I could really use some hand-holding on this one because what I'm finding just goes over my head. Thank you!

    Great, thanks! I checked out the post titled "TIP: Here is a quick rundown of common template names" which seems the most relevant to the point I'm at regarding configuring my store and STS. It says that index.php.html is the Default Category template used for all category pages that do not have a specific template page created for it - if you didn't have this template, STS would use sts_template.html. So, just to make sure I understand this okay, if I deleted index.php.html, then the changes I made to sts_template.html would show up? If I keep index.php.html, is that the file I should be customizing for the overall layout of the store? I guess I am unsure about that because it is the default category template. I suppose that on my homepage it is showing the category "Top" and that's probably why the changes I make to index.php.html take precedence over changes made to sts_template.html. Please let me know if I am on the right track here or not. Thanks for helping with this. I appreciate it very much. ~ Jess

    Hi, Bill! Thanks for the reply! I do have sts_templates.html set as my default template, but after I upload that file with changes I've made, the changes do not show up online. Of course, after I ask I THINK figured it out. When I looked at my storefront I was seeing the message "This is the template for index.php page. You can find it here: /includes/sts_templates/full/index.php.html." I decided to make changes to index.php.html to see what would happen. After I uploaded my modified version of index.php.html, the changes I made showed up online. If that is not right, then I still need help.

    Well, I feel like I've done my duty trying to search for the answer to my quandry, but I couldn't find it so here goes... I am at the part where I want to customize the file that is supposed to be located here: /catalog/includes/sts_template.html I do not have a file named sts_template.html in my public_html/includes/ directory. I tried making changes to public_html/includes/sts_templates/full/sts_templates.html, but none of the changes I made showed up after I uploaded my edited file. Did I do something wrong? If not, where is the file located that I should be customizing? How do I get my changes to take effect? If the answer is readily available online somewhere, please send me a link to it. If this somehow has not yet been explained, please oblige me. THANK YOU!!!

    Nevermind, I was in the admin directory not the regular directory.

    Hi! I am trying to install STS 4.5.8 on a fresh install of 2RC2a and I have a question. I'm at 2.4 Modify osCommerce files and it says to modify the file located here: "catalog\includes\classes\boxes.php" but the file in that directory online is called box.php - there is no boxes.php. Do I need to delete box.php after I upload the STS file boxes.php? I could be doing something wrong or maybe I'm looking in the wrong place, so please point (or shove) me in the right direction if that be the case. Thank you!
