osCommerce New Box / New Page Introduction

This osCommerce website tutorial provide an introductory of add new box and new page. It shows how many files are required and how to customize them.

osCommerce add new box and new page introduction :

Six files are required to add a new Support Box with a new About Us page to the left column or right column of oscommerce store.

In this os commerce tutorial, we use the original information.php file and shipping.php files as the base templates.

NOTE:
1. The original information.php file will be used as the base template for the new Support Box (support.php). Since we are going to add a new Box similar to the Information Box, therefore this is a good idea to use the information.php as the base template.

2. The original shipping.php files will be used as the base template for the new About Us Pages (about_us.php). Actually we can use other original files as the base template for the About As Page.

Assume that your osCommerce store is is installed in the home directory (for example, public_html) of your domain. Then the six files that required are:

1. public_html/includes/boxes/information.php
2. public_html/includes/column_left.php
3. public_html/includes/languages/english.php
4. public_html/shipping.php
5. public_html/includes/filenames.php
6. public_html/includes/languages/english/shipping.php

NOTE:

1. The 1st file (information.php) will be renamed or saved as support.php since it only serve as the base template for the new Support file.

2. The 4th (shipping.php) and 6th files (shipping.php) will be renamed or saved as about_us.php since it only serve as the base template for the new About Us page
