  1. @peterpil19 Are you trying these on a clean install of osC, or your already modified store? Malcolm
  2. (please forgive a stupid question, but ...) Will this do anything to address attributes? Will I be able to keep track of inventory for, say, T-shirts, in different sizes and different colors? Malcolm
  3. @peterpil19 If you are trying to convert this add-on from a Header module to a Navbar module, see my post here: And, more importantly, the post right below it. HTH Malcolm
  4. @nikks146 1) The size of your logo is too big. You'll need to alter the size of the image. A program such as Photoshop can be used to change the size. Typically, the logo should only be about 200 px tall. 2) In the newer bootstrap versions of osC, you can list a product in more than one categories without any other add-ons. 3) Since you are still early in the development of your site, I also highly recommend that you use the latest 'Edge' bootstrap version of osC, available here: The version you are using is obsolete, and will crash if/when your host upgrades their version of PHP. Being responsive allows your customers to access your site from their phones and tablets. And, Google is giving greater importance to sites that are responsive. Moving to osC Edge will mean starting over, though. Back up everything! Back up! Back up! Back up! HTH Malcolm
  5. @inra311 If your local workstation is Windows, are you familiar with programs like WinMerge? (I'm sure there are similar programs for Apple and/or Linux) Malcolm
  6. @nikks146 1) When you install osCommerce, the default language for the store side is English. However, you can install other languages too. This allows you to have your store in different language of your choice, or have it in multiple languages (beyond the scope of this thread). So, when @raiwa said: he did not *literally* mean includes/languages/english[your_language]/privacy.php If you only have osC configured for English (the default installation), the actual file would be: includes/languages/english/privacy.php If, for example, you had osC configured for German, the file would be: includes/languages/german/privacy.php In other words, you would need to substitute the name of the language(s) you are using on the shop side of osC where @raiwa had [your_language]. 2) You can use any PLAIN TEXT editor to edit the files. Note: it has to be a PLAIN TEXT editor, such as NotePad or NotePad++, and NOT something like Microsoft Word, or Frontpage, or DreamWeaver. Do you have osC installed on a local computer, or on a host's server? If you are testing it on a local computer, editing the local files it easy. If you have the files on a host's server, you can either: a) edit a copy of the file locally, and then upload the edited file to the server, or b) use some other method to edit the file directly on the host's server. You may be able to do that through your host's cPanel, or use a FTP client such as FileZilla to edit the file while connected to the host's server. FileZilla is also a good program for uploading (and downloading) files to and from the host's server. Lastly, make backups and copies of EVERYTHING before you start editing files, and more backups as you continue to change anything! In a different thread, you indicated that you do not know much about HTML, PHP, or CSS. Trying to set up an online store is a challenge, even for experience programmers. While I might suggest an easier 'first project', you can do this if you take it one step at a time. Make extensive notes of everything you do (it's amazing how I can't remember how I did something only a few weeks ago ) HTH Malcolm
  7. @nikks146 Good morning, Nikki. Welcome to the forum! 1) Which version of osCommerce are you trying to install? The last "official" version, 2.3.4, is very much out of date, and will not work if your host upgrades their version of PHP. The best version to install is the Responsive Community version, 2.3.4.BS Edge. You will need to download it from Github: 2) There are two ways of changing the color scheme. The first is to manually edit the user.css file. This will obviously require some knowledge of HTML, CSS, and PHP coding. The second is to download and install the Theme Switcher add-on. You can read about it here: and download it here: HTH Malcolm
  8. PHP

    @MrPhil The only way I keep track of the different versions of Edge are the file dates within the package. The last several releases I've seen are dated: 08/30/17 05/11/17 03/16/17 02/20/17 06/14/16 09/28/15 HTH Malcolm
  9. @Jack_mcs @burt I did need to install one of the add-ons you suggested (it did not display properly without one). The first one you suggested worked. The second one didn't. You *might* want to include this info in the installation instructions. Thank you both for your help! Malcolm
  10. There are three kinds of lies: Lies, Damned Lies, and Statistics
  11. And, if so, can that template be modular and/or Admin configurable? For example, in Edge, there is the Navbar Account module and the Content Footer Account module that both do essentially the same thing. Could they share a common template file? And, could the shared contents be configurable through Admin (ie: add or delete links)? Malcolm
  12. @Moxamint IIRC, it's a carry-over from World War II, where the 'time' was adjusted to shift more of the 'working hours' into daylight, thus saving the country energy. It is probably as necessary now as the 9-month school year, where students get the summers off to help their parents work their farms. <shrug> Malcolm
  13. @Moxamint Daylight Savings Time follows a well defined schedule, It should not be too difficult to incorporate that into your adjustment code. Malcolm
  14. @suscrofa Gold was the beginning of the new modular concept of osC. Many functions were included, but just needed to be 'turned on'. Edge has taken that modularity much further. Instead of just being able to turn the Navigation bar On or Off, you can now select what modules you want IN the navigation bar, and the order they are displayed. You can install additional modules, all without any core changes In addition, some of the functions that were *not* turned on in Gold, by default, are now on, by default, in Edge (you can still turn them off, if you choose). Malcolm
  15. @suscrofa (please note that others will tell you that Gold is obsolete, and that you really should move your store to the latest version of Edge. But, to answer your question ...) 1) Do you have the Account Block module enabled in the footer of your store? > Admin > Modules > Content > Install Modules > Account Block 2) Do you have the Navigation Bar installed in the header of your store? > Admin > Modules > Content > Install Modules > Navigation Bar HTH Malcolm
