I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the right answer. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I discover an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could assist you..
But there is only one pixel_trans.gif. Which of those little icons does this refer to?..
The pixel_trans gif is a transparent, space-saving image used throughout osCommerce (and most other web-sites!)..
Basically, what you need to do is replace the images you don't want - for example, using your 'man sat at a desk', you want to replace table_background_default.gif in the images directory - with a.
Any similar images that you want to replace will also probably be found in the images directory, so simply make another copy of pixel_trans.gif,giving it the name of the image you no longer want..
(I would advise renaming the original unwanted images rather than arbitrarily overwriting them, just in case you change your mind!)..
Great info Roger! I have the opposite problem. I have a broken link for one of those tiny icons. The icon I am referring to appears to the left of shopping cart when I click on one of the categories. This probably happened when I replaced "Let's See What We have Here" with the category name. What was there and how do I put it back in?..
What you are describing is the picture reserved for the manufacturer or category. The default osCommerce database has pictures there for the random products it populates the iPage site with..
If you don't upload a picture for the manufacturer or category yourself, you will get the little red X symbol..
What I have done in the short term is use the "table_background_default.gif" as the image for all my manufacturers and categories..
In the long term I will replace with a transparent .gif, or re-code to remove the image entirely..
Hope that helps...
Which file does table_background_default.gif appear? I searched in index.phpbut no luck...
Man! This forum moves fast!.
Table_background_default.gif is referenced in catalog/index.php, at least on my version (2.2).
The image itself is found in catalog/images...
The reason I was missing the category icon/image was because I did not specify one in Admin when I was creating categories...
Alternately, you can simply comment out the code that references the images that you don't want to show up..
I have the opposite problem. I have added images to the categories in the admin, but they do not show up when viewing the page. This is for the categories list (top left) of the pages, all other images work fine. Any ideas?..
Right click on the image you want to replace choose properties to find it's hiding place...
The first pixel_trans.gif that I renamed worked just fine, but the others, even though I am renaming & replacing them aren't disappearing. I'm not sure why.??..
Dotted around my iPage site there are a number of small pics. For example on the front page a person sat at a desk..
How do I get rid of these? Can anyone help..
Download pixel_trans.gif from your images dir..
Find out the name of small pics you want to nuke and change the name of the downloaded pixel_trans.gif to the small pic to be nuked name and upload to relevant dir..
Repeat for each image..
