as My first step is to modify the template or may be add some additional data to display
I try to look at the .tpl and .php in controller folder
However there are many function in controller folder I don't know what's it doing.
also some of them passing value to the functions
where can i get the information about how to use those function?


Code: Select all

$this->data['text_information'] = $this->language->get('text_information');
$this->data['text_service'] = $this->language->get('text_service');
foreach ($this->model_catalog_information->getInformations() as $result) {

First off have a look at the Development Guide ... on&path=77

OpenCart uses a MVC (Model - View - Controller) architecture, and you can add L to that as well for language. Read the documentaion above or Google MVC if you want to find out more about that architecture

The language objects basically just get text in the language that the user is currently using. If you have a look in opencart/admin/language/english/catalog/category.php you will see the text that appears on the admin pages for editing the categories.

The model object looks after the database calls, so all mysql queries are accessed via the model objects.
