How Do I ...? All the basic install questions regularly asked...

Recommended Posts

Hi My name is Sue. I am a new member. I am nearing retirement and I am setting up my online craft shop. I find all of these items on this thread very helpful but..... When I find the file to change the text on the front page it is normally an application file and I get a little box asking me what program I wish it to open in. I have no idea. Perhaps you might like to take a look at the site and you will know what I need to change. The URL is www.crazycraftcubby.com.au. I thought that I was pretty smart getting this far but now I am stuck. Hope you more computer literate people out there can help. By the way this site is hosted by an external server if that makes any difference.My operating system is windows xp home edition.

 

Hello Sue

 

Aahem, you have a nice website but this is not built with osc , you have used a product called cubecart.

Not sure why your in a oscommerce forum, Im sure cubecart support forum would be better for you

Hey Jack,

 

I've been unable to locate the /catalog/images/ files because, they've been removed!! (I downloaded oscommerce as a 3rd party software) Now my hosting company wants me to pay $15 to have them restored. I'm thinking of downloading manually from oscommerce website, any tips? Please respond.

 

Thanks.

 

Adelle.

 

 

Take a look in the includes/languges/english.php file.

Go to the above menu, Solutions->Downloads, and download the latest version of the package. Extract the contents and upload the contents of the images directory to the images directory on your server.

Hello, where can be changed this: "Put here your Shipping & Returns information.", thank you.

I would have thought that it is like all of the language specific files, eg catalog\includes\languages\english\shipping.php


The Coopco Underwear Shop

Ok,

I have looked through all 10 pages and done several searches.

As a newbie I am looking for category images.

I can reinvent the wheel but has anyone already produced several images for this?

Or if you can point me in the right direction.

Thanks,

Doug

..I am looking for category images...

 

obviously you are speaking english, which i am not or not seem to be by some (i speak Esperanto or so it seems), but could you clarify what exactly you mean by category images? if you mean product category images then there is no universal category images as these would depend on the products. if you mean the cartoon-ish images that comes with stock osc, then few people use them on their live shops, and you can get rid of them very easily.

Here is a “How Do I …?” list for the basic questions that get asked in this forum. After spending a lot of time searching for this list, and realising that the same things are asked over and over, I thought I would put this list here with answers to make it easier for others to find!

 

 

 

8. … Remove / Add the rounded corners to the info boxes on the left or right columns?

Go to catalog/includes/boxes and open the corresponding file name for the box you want to change. Here is the code that will change this – look for the line that you have (eg left rounded) then change it to what you want it to be.

 

No rounded corners

 new infoBoxHeading($info_box_contents, false, false);

 

Right rounded corner

 new infoBoxHeading($info_box_contents, false, true);

 

 

 

 

Happy coding! :D

 

 

Hi, I´ve done this, but now I can´t change the color of the corner, i can change the boxes header color but that corner bit stays with the default color. I´ve searched a lot in the "stylesheet_css" but just cand find were the code is :( .And this happens to all the boxes that I´ve changed the colors, they all have the corners in the default color... Please help!!

Thank´s a lot for your help...

If your oscommerce is NOT in catalog folder, ignore reference to "catalog" and use your own folder.

 

1. Inside catalog/images/ folder, copy pixel_trans.gif to ---> catalog/images/infobox folder

 

2. Delete corner_right_left.gif inside catalog/images/infobox folder OR rename corner_right_left.gif inside catalog/images/infobox to my.gif

 

3. Rename pixel_trans.gif that is now inside catalog/images/infobox folder to corner_right_left.gif

Your initial post indicated you wanted to remove rounded corners, since you quoted "How do I ...remove rounded corners"

 

The solution I posted gets rid of rounded corners without altering code AND making the corners adapt the color set in the boxes header.

 

If you still want to have rounded corners, follow my instructions above but do the opposite.

 

Once you have your rounded corners back, try this to make the corners resemble the color.

 

Refer to these color codes to match the color you want.

Ok, sorry, my bad ;)

What I really want is to have the corners rounded and be able to change their colors as I change the box header color!

When I change them in the stylesheet, it changes the header color but not the corners, so I tought that it would be somewere else that I had to change the code, but apparently it must be a bug or so :blink:

 

 

background: #ff0000;

Is the background color of the heading.

 

.infoBox {

background: #ff0000;

}

 

Sets the line color around the box,

 

Here is were changed the color at the first place, just like is explained in the link you provided me, it was when I realized the corners problem and posted here for help.

 

Think I´m gonna keep the non-rounded corners :lol:

 

Thank you for your help.
