I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the right answer. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I find an answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could answer your iPage question..

Oh, well I think I know what the problem is then.Somehow I changed the properties of my index.php from dynamic to static images. This happened when I modified it using FP. I"m going to try and find the original index.php, incorporate my changes and then see if this works..

I'll let you know. Thanks for your help..

I wish I had a reliable designer to do this for me. This is not my forte :-)..

Good luck! osCommerce is not the easiest thing to customize - start simply and work from there. It took me several months of plugging away before I got something I liked..

I will suggest that FrontPage may work against you here, especially if you try to use any of it's "enhancements". Also, if you don't already know PHP, pick up a good book on it (I use "Programming PHP" from O'Reilly) to explain the basics. It really helps one understand what's going on in osCommerce...

It sure isn't!.

Thanks for the book tip. I bought a couple myself. If I don't get what I need out of it I'll take a look at the one you mentioned..

P.s. FP is out! PHP is much better, as far as I'm concernerd..

Thanks for setting me on the right track!..

Well, PHP and FP are two different things. PHP is a language for writing interactive web pages. FP is a web iPage site creation and maintenance tool. You can certainly use FP to organize and maintain a PHP site, just avoid using any of the FP frills such as navigation bars, etc..

I don't know how "friendly" FP is for writing PHP code. I use Dreamweaver MX 2004 myself - haven't used FP in about four years...

I have my categories all setup but when I click on a category it takes me to the index.php. What am I missing???..

Comment #6

Well, the categories links DO go to index.php - with a cPath= value to select the category. Somehow the cPath isn't gettiing appended, or your index.php file isn't processing it correctly. Got a link we can look at?..
