28 Days Of Code – Day 1, Holiday or Away Message

By | March 3, 2015

Many moons ago I had created a fairly simple “we’re away” piece of code that changed a couple of core files. I updated this to make it into a Header Tag Module so it’s a very simple installation.

I made a version for the Bootstrapped osCommerce:


And for the normal osCommerce:



Installation takes 10 seconds, turning it on in admin takes 20 seconds, adding your message takes 30 seconds. 1 minute total to place an explanation message and/or turn off your checkout entirely.

Good For:

– 2.3 series osCommerce
– 2.3.4 Bootstrapped osCommerce

Possible uses

– shut down your checkout while you are on vacation
– shut down your checkout whilst performing site maintenance
– display any messsage you wish
