Hi

Im currently in the process of creating a website: www.codeclothes.co.uk however I would like to remove the

Extras Title, Brands, Gift Vouchers, Affiliates and specials from the bottom footer as Im not planning to use them, how can I remove these from all pages, I presume within the .php somewhere, but to be honest my knowledge of php is limited,

any help will be kindly appreciated!

Regards

I believe that they are in the footer.tpl file (lines 18-26 approx) which can be found in the catalogue/view/theme/default/template/common/ folder

Hi

It seems sensible to me that it would be a good idea if it were possible to remove these links in the footer from within the Admin Control Panel. I would like to remove the "Returns" link from within the "Customer Service" list. I would like to remove all the "Extras" items and the "Wishlist" + "Newsletter" links from the "Account" List.

Does anybody know of a free template which will do this for me?

Many Thanks!

In addition to moving the Extras as Above.

I have also put the following in the stylesheet.css to justify the three remaining

/* move the first column to the right by 170px */
#footer div:first-child {
margin-left: 170px;
}

/* make the columns narrower to take account of the margin on the first column */
#footer .column {
width: 27%;
min-height: 100px;
float: left;
}

Alas, I am on iPages and on the server I can not upload a replacement file nor can I edit this document. Is it possible to access the source file with the OpenCart Admin system?

I'm using iPage too and had to create an FTP user and use an FTP program (such as FileZilla) to be able to edit and upload these files.

What I do is simply to change the language file/'s so translation for the items I dont want displayed is "" (nothing) i other words not displayed. This way I dont have to change any "more complicated" files that could cause unexpected problems later on with mods or simply disappear after an upgrade.

Just my 2 cents worth.

I agree it would be nice to se this and other things controlled from admin. But just how bloated should the admin really be?

We shouldn't have to code every damn piece we want to change.

It's not hard to create a 'this link leads to this page' system without having to alter the code. Same for changing the header, footing, and other obviously desirable customizable parts of the page. Not everyone is a programmer and it should not be assumed as such. How much coding should one have to learn to set up a simple cart?

I agree - this should not need to edit code.

What happens each time there is an update to open cart, will this get overwritten and we need to manually edit code every time?

You need to keep in mind that OpenCart is free, and that there are lots of extensions (free and not so free) that can do pretty much everything you could possibly need. If not there are developers out there, like me, who are here to help.

Use vqmod to make sure your changes can be carried forward during an upgrade, and to prevent you having to touch the core code.

If you ever get stuck, use this forum. We don't bite.

your'e a soft speaking fellow...

FREE is possibly not enough, a free Custom Service would be the least, what the Guy, claiming to be the owner of OC, is expected to offer with his product. More, why couldn't he design the Software in a way, that everybody, regardless of education or language, would be able to customize everything as wished by a few Clicks/Moves on a Mouse-Button?! It's a shame...

This is, according to some of the above, what some, obviously, expect. They want to use this thing to make Money, fast and soon, they never planned on something like 'programming' - spending uncounted hours on something, just to make it into a Custom Platform to start to get rich quick.

Lucky World, it's not the case. If it would, there would not longer be any progress, everything would be and look the same, who would care about Improvements, who would care about going further..!?

For free

It's the WILL and the BRAIN, what makes the difference.
Success does not come for FREE.

I am a newbie to Opencart and websites in general - I've removed the 'Extras' from my footer but would now like to center align the remaining information boxes - the information posted by Marcus says you can do this in stylesheet.css,
I've attempted to do this but it made no differences - does it need to be in a specific place in the stylesheet?

Thanks

my 2 cents worthe to Ernies comment

free - means you work for free, a kind of slavery.

do you have any idea just how many thousands of hours go into this sort of work and its never 'just a simpke mod'
