Hi all,

I have recently taken over an established opencart store. I need to post up Xmas holiday dates at top of page, to state when no post will be going out.
I am not particularly good with settings and wondered if anyone could talk me through simple steps in laymans terms, to be able to add dates to top of page please. Store is - I am hoping to put in dates in small white space to right of store name, in the white space.

Thanks for taking the time.

No OC version posted. In catalog/view/theme/<your_theme>/template/common/header.tpl / .twig file.

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased post counters are caused by redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.

You seem to use the 1.5.6.x default theme, so try this VqMod, then, create
a Banner, where your opening hours will be shown, and link it accordingly
in the VqMod. Just to give you an Idea...
Good Luck! ;)

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<id><![CDATA[Add Top Header Banner]]></id>
<version><![CDATA[OS v.]]></version>
<author><![CDATA[Ernie - IP_CAM]]></author>

<file name="catalog/view/theme/*/template/common/header.tpl">
<operation error="log">
<search position="after" index="1"><![CDATA[<div class="container">]]></search>
<div style="text-align:center;"><a href="" target="_blank" title="Adults Only!"> <img alt="Test Banner" title="Test Banner" width="1322" height="146" src=""></a></div>
