Hi all

First of all, I'm VERY satisfied with OpenCart and all the functionalities it has to offer. Currently I'm running a shop created in just a few weeks (including CSS restyling to match my regular site). There is just one little thing that I'm absolutely missing, as I don't want to mess with the template files because those have caused a lot of trouble in the past for me.

On the admin panel //Catalog//Information
I would love to see a function to add another information page, but instead of text have a link added to another website. I want to link to affiliates and websites that offer their products and services but I have to add a page of plain text and add links into this text first. That's fine but it would be much better if I could just add a link directly to another website or to my own website or pages using an URL.

and my module allows you to adds links / menus / icons / images .. pretty much whatever you want where ever you want ..
simple ones or complicated ones .. generally useful .. ... n_id=33048

so lots of options both free and paid out there ..

You should not modify core files .. if you would like to donate a cup of coffee I will write it in a modification for you.
