    Please, please can someone point out where im going wrong............
    Im trying to edit the wording on home page from the default shown below, i`ve gone back to the tutorials time and time again and following instructions to no avail. It states in the tutorial that I have to keep wording between the comma marks and input my own text between them???!!!!!

    I think they are referring to the page editor, or thats what i seem to recall with oscommerce, to edit your page, and not the actual index file.

    FILENAME_DEFAULT . '</nobr><br><br>That file can be edited manually, or via the Administration Tool with the <nobr class="messageStackSuccess">Languages->' . ucfirst($language) . '->Define</nobr> or <nobr class="messageStackSuccess">Tools->File Manager</nobr> modules.<br><br>The text is set in the following manner:<br><br><nobr>define(\'TEXT_MAIN\', \'<span class="messageStackSuccess">This is a default setup of the osCommerce project...</span>\');</nobr><br><br>The text highlighted in green may be modified - it is important to keep the define() of the TEXT_MAIN keyword.

    The main text for home page is found in includes/languages/english/index.php (assuming you are working in English) and the Welcome bit is in includes/languages/english.php and you edit both these files to your liking.

    Nice to be able to offer an answer rather than ask!
