Also, is there a way to get rid of the "powered by osCommerce" at the bottom.

go to catalog/includes/footer.php and comment out the line that has FOOTER_TEXT_REQUESTS_SINCE

 

Why do you want to remove powered by oscommerce - are you not proud of this cart ? There are rules for it's removal primarily that you make significant mods to stock osC. I am sure when you have made significant mods along the way you will come across where to remove the statement. :D

:thumbsup: I have to agree with Charles! You should be proud enough to keep powered by osCommerce in your cart, as you could otherwise pay for some that are less supported, let alone by a community friendly and supportive users. Shame on anyone that thinks this cart is not good enough to be recognized by the rest of the world. To Charles, Bravo!!! :thumbsup: We help each other, to help ourselves!

Hi,

 

Is there a way in which I can remove "Hosting & Site design by Website Solutions" from the footer of my website. I have looked in the footer.php file but can't find anything in there.

Maybe one of you experts might know how to remove it??

 

Thanks

Yes... edit it in English.php file which is in catalog/includes/languages/english.php Its at the bottom somewhere. Open the file in notepad and CTRL-F solutions and you'll find it.

 

P.S. Don't forget to backup. You might accidentally edit something you never wanted to.

I also though of removing the words "powered by Oscommerce". However when I read this thread, I realised how helpful this community and I can't find at other forum. I did have some PHP website and the forumer are not as helpful as you guys. I decided not to removed it and I really proud with what you guys doing.

 

Keep it up.

well, the thing is, removing the powered by oscommerce is ok to do.. but not while you are in developement.. once you have made enough changes to your cart that you can clearly say that your cart is far enough from the stock that it is more yours than oscommece, THEN you can say how..

 

HOWEVER< there are reasons people take it out.. One is that by advertising that you use oscommerce, you are saying that any and all security holes that are known in oscommerce are on your store.. that is the #1 reason why people remove it.. But you should ONLY remove it if you have made enough changes to your site where it is more your design than oscommerce..

 

I am not ashamed to say i used osocmmerce to build my store, but i will not advertise it once my store goes live.. i have made loads of changes to the coding as well.. not just a banner change, a payment module, and some new colors..

 

I actually think that removing the HOSTING AND SITE DESIGN Is even worse and your designer would be PISSED that you did that.. \


A great place for newbies to start

You did have a point there. However are there a pull stop with designing or adding more coding to our oscommerce base? Some people might say that it is unprofessional to leave the words there.

 

The true thing for me is to make my customer full info with my product and create more sales. And oscommerce help me to fullfill it.

 

Cheers.
