Define mainpage: all seem fine but admin>TEXT_FILE_DOES_NOT_EXIST

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have "installed" the contribution "define mainpage", everything seem to be fine the standard text shows up on shop main oage, BUT in admin section the only thing that comes up is the title define mainpage and "TEXT_FILE_DOES_NOT_EXIST".

 

Anyone knows what's wrong???

 

I appreciate all help.

 

Thanks.

Anyone knows what's wrong???

you skipped one of the installation steps, you need to define the "TEXT_FILE_DOES_NOT_EXIST" in the language file.


Please read this line: Do you want to find all the answers to your questions? click here. As for contribution database it's located here!

8 people out of 10 don't bother to read installation manuals. I can recommend: if you can't read the installation manual, don't bother to install any contribution yourself.

Before installing contribution or editing/updating/deleting any files, do the full backup, it will save to you & everyone here on the forum time to fix your issues.

Any issues with oscommerce, I am here to help you.

In admin/define_mainpage.php

 

Look for this

 

// This will cause it to look for 'catalog/language/(L)/define_mainpage.php'

 

$HTTP_GET_VARS['filename'] = FILENAME_DEFINE_MAINPAGE;

 

 

Change to this

 

// This will cause it to look for 'catalog/language/(L)/define_mainpage.php'

 

// $HTTP_GET_VARS['filename'] = FILENAME_DEFINE_MAINPAGE;

 

$HTTP_GET_VARS['filename'] = 'define_mainpage.php';

Hi,

 

Hi Thanks for your replies.

I have chnaged the lines in the admin/define mainpage.php

 

Before the above, I re-installed the back-up of the admin section and got the html text editor to work.

I can see the text and html formatting which is a big step forward.

Last night I lost the connection to the admin section and had to install it all over again (ok... copying it from a back-up then and kaking the other changes I have done all over again).

 

I have taken the tiny mce (from the 3-2_0_1 installation pack) in the jscripts folder and dragged it into admin/includes/javascript folder.

 

No change, still only html text formatting.

 

What step have I overlooked???

 

Thanks for your help.

Hi,

 

when updating the text, I get the following message, or a similar for line 29 instead;

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING in /hsphere/local/home/"user"/e-shop.domain.com/folder/catalog/includes/languages/danish/define_mainpage.php on line 28

 

This is what it look like in the texteditor:

 

/*

mainpage.php ENGLISH by Matthijs - mattice@xs4all.nl

 

This page will be shown on the first page of the catalog

(default.php) instead of the standard message.

 

You can write your php/html straight into this.

This means you can drop in another table on the main

page where you could create (manually) a featured product

or just drop in some nice graphics. I've included a small sample

below using existing box-code/stylesheets so you get the idea.

 

BE AWARE that changes (and possible errors/typo's) are

directly used by the catalog. There is no preview option,

changes are directly 'live'. So be carefull.

 

 

All changed and all fixes have been fixed for current snap shot...

"Define Mainpage" module v1.3 by Matthijs (mattice@xs4all.nl)

<p>

This module demonstrates how easy it can be to adapt existing code in OSC.<br>

All I had to do was add one single line to define_languages.php (admin) to make

sure it always looks for the mainpage.php file. Obviously I had to then implement it

in the Admin & Catalog side, but that's not a big deal as you've just found out.<p>

You can edit the contents of this file from within the Admin ( -> CATALOG -> DEFINE MAINPAGE)<br>

For other, less advanced layouts choose either German or Spanish from the language menu. (Provided you've installed

those languages)<p>If you can't open/edit the /[language]/mainpage.php file you should probably set the right permissions. You'll get a warning anyway.

<p>Todo? Future plans? World peace through superior fire power... ehmm.. <br>no I mean a preview option ;)<br>

And perhaps make a few templates for the layout...<p>

I'd appreciate an e-mail if you use this, I'm curious...<br>

Later,<br>

Worked like a charm for me!!
