Hi Everyone!

 

I've been trying to find an answer for my enquiry all over this forum, sorry if I missed anywhere...but I am almost sure no one have asked this.

 

I would like to replace the price of only 1 or 2 products for "POA" letters. Everytime I try insert anything diferent of number in the price field the result is always £0.00.

 

Please if you know how to sort this out I'll be really glad.

 

Thank you all ;)

try the includes directory if your store is in the root.

 

In my OSCommerce configuration, "includes" is in configuration/tools/file manager

For those with osCommerce 2.2 RC2a that are having trouble setting up Paypal Express in Payment Modules because you can not find out how to get your API's here is how it is done.

 

How do I generate an API Signature?

You need to have a PayPal Business account. If you're testing with a Sandbox test account, repeat these steps for your Sandbox test accounts and your live accounts. We recommend having a pen and paper ready, and opening a separate web browser to perform these steps.

 

Here's How:

 

Click the My Account tab.

Click Profile at the top of the page.

Click the Request API credentials link in the Account Information column

Click the Set up PayPal API credentials and permissions link.

Click Request API Credentials link.

Select API signature.

Check the Agree and Submit button.

Click Done.

Write down your API username and API password information.

Copy the signature and save it to a file or some other location. This is your API signature.

Thanks for that. Now...this probably seems dim, but I have done all that. Now the problem that I have is that I can't see anywhere that I am supposed to plug the API into the oScommerce Admin area. Or does it stay resident on PayPayl? Because my payment is still not working. Getting very very confused.

Cheers

Lawrence

I am trying to change font color and size for product descriptions. I found my "includes" folder here:

 

File Manager> /home/content/i/l/l/illnessstore/html//includes

 

but still cannot locate the css file.

It's not under "catalog" section at all (at least that I can locate)

 

ideas? thanks!

Lisa

 

 

17. How do I change the font / colour / size?

Go to catalog/includes/stylesheet.css and make the changes in there for the main site.

Go to catalog/admin/includes/stylesheet.css and make the changes in there for the admin section.

3. … Change the Welcome Guest! Would you like to log yourself in? Or would you prefer to create an account on the front page?

Go to catalog/includes/languages/English/index.php

Find the following line and change it to what you want it to say

 

Is this for an older version than that currently released? 'TEXT_GREETING_GUEST is not found in my catalog/includes/languages/English/index.php file.

 

I too, could not find this... If you do not find the line in this file, look here: catalog/includes/languages/english.php

 

found it, changed it, fixed it ;-)

Hello...This might sound like a really dumb question, but I am trying to find out how to make some text changes to my newly installed shopping cart. In the first post of this thread, it says that I need to edit files located at this string: catalog/includes/languages/English/index.php, for example.

 

I cannot locate these files...where would I find them?

 

Thanks for your help, and please pardon the ignorance!

Hello. I am new to web design, but have learned a great deal in the past week.

 

This guide has been most helpful, thank you.

 

I have customised the boxes in the catalogue to a new colour and have removed the corner gifs to make them soley the colour. I find now thought that the headings are sitting flush with the left border of the box.

 

Could someone please advise how to create a space/margin between the border and text?

 

Thanks

Edward

Q: How do I enter new line in product description? Whatever i do there is always one line in preview...

Try

<p>Line 1</p>
<p>Line 2</p>

or whatever other type of html spacing control you like.

That is the location on your server. You may or may not have the catalog directory. That reers to the root (beginning of your files). Then the rest are just directories that you have to enter into to see the next one.

Hi, I can't install it! :(

 

This error is something I miss or a problem with the server?

 

"There was a problem connecting to the database server. The following error had occured:

 

Lost connection to MySQL server during query

 

Please verify the connection parameters and try again."

 

All the permissions are OK and I tried with a few different users and databases, but keeps giving me that error.

 

Please help! :wacko:

That's in the includes/header.php file. Open the file in an editor and search for either FILENAME_ACCOUNT or account.php. The symbol used should be right after it.

It depends on how they wrote the template. If they used standard oscommerce code, that box is probably displaying the best sellers, which are tracked by oscommerce. If that is the case, the only way to change that is to make a purchase on your site of some product and place the quantity high. It will then be considered a best seller and should display. There are other ways to manipulate that and I think a contribution exists for it, but that is the easiest.
