That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I got an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you help..

Comment #1

If it was "correct" it would be working. Post your english.php language file here so we can spot the problem...

Comment #2

So true :-) Sorry for the delay... I decided to enjoy a nice cold and refresh my boggled mind! Here's my english.php.

Comment #3

By the way, I actually got a laugh out of this: I did a search on google with the keywords BOX_HEADING_CATEGORIES and found several sites with the same problem I'm having! They could use the info too :-)..

Comment #4

How about the english.php from the catalog side. You posted the admin...

Comment #5

Can you point out to me where the define is in your english.php as I do not see it, I do however see this define.

Should this not be your catalog/includes/languages/english.php instead of your admin/includes/languages/english.php.

Where is your issue in the catalog left column or the admin left column..

Comment #6

Okay then, I must be more confused than I thought! What english.php should I post? The path, I'm totally new at this, hence the name total_newbie!..

Comment #7

Ok then one last time is the issue in the catalog with the left hand column where it says categories.

If the answer is yes then post catalog/includes/languages/english.php.

If the answer is no then is the issue in the admin panel left hand column where it says configuration and catalog..

Comment #8

Take a look at it and maybe you can tell me where it is. There are several other problems but I'm concentrating on this one at the moment..


Thank you for all your assistance. I'm sure you have other things to do.....

Comment #9

Ok you are missing most of the defines in catalog/includes/languages/english.php..

Comment #10

Yikes! That's one slowwwwwwwww site..

It would be a LOT easier if you'd simply post the file here...

Comment #11

THANKS!! I now have the right english.php in the right location :-).

Yes, the iPage site is slow! Is it trying to load all images from the database or just the images on the first page? If it's just the first page I guess I'll have to try optimizing again. Either that, or, maybe it's the graphics in the header and right column..

Any sugguestions would be greatly appreciated..

Thanks again!..

Comment #12

BOX_HEADING_ is showing up in my left column instead of the text that should be there, like categories. How do I fix this? HELP!..

Comment #13

Look in catalog/includes/languages/english.php there you will find the defines for the boxes and headings.

// categories box text in includes/boxes/categories.php.

Define('BOX_HEADING_CATEGORIES', 'Categories');..

Comment #14
