Dynamic Information Pages

for osCommerce Online Merchant v2.3

Dynamic Information Pages What its is: This will install a bunch of usual information pages - just like the ones you have now only dynamic That is - the page conet resides in the database and you cvan edit it from the admin area. No editing yucky PHP files. I know its been done before BUT - I needed to teasch myself OSC && I wanted something I could install and uninstall without requiring code editing. Plus I wanted a module framework that was completely standalone and required absolutley no code editing s that I could use it to base my next mod on - a category/articles/pages module (also done before, but not the way I want it) Installation This little module overwrites only ONE file. catalogue/admin/includes/column_left.php Ok - so I lied a very timy bit - if you have previously modified this file I suggest you have sufficient skills to make the appropriate changes in this file and catalogue/admin/includes/modules/boxes.php (people who have changed the file will very wuickly be able to work out what to do) If you have never changed catalogue/admin/includes/column_left.php and you are using osCommerce Online Merchant v2.3.1 forge ahead ... copy the contents of the catalogue folder within this archive to you web server in the directory you have Osc installed. If you have previously installed this - remove it from with the admin area before installing it. then make a backup of catalogue/includes/modules/boxes/dyn_info.sql This file is a backup of your data for the information pages. disable - or uninstall the standard information box module uninstallation will remove the database tables and any entries but it WILL make a backup of the data. in catalogue/includes/modules/boxes/dyn_info.sql Any probs - let me know
