the steps below, read "Modifying MMUI".
If you already use Internet Explorer (IE) as your normal browser,
you can use its FTP capabilities to access your site. And once you've FTP'd to your site, you will be very comfortable
looking around because your site will display in the IE browser just like the files on
your hard drive display in Microsoft's Windows Explorer. This also saves you the trouble
of using or learning another FTP software program to manage the files on your website.
OPEN Internet Explorer and type: ftp://YOURSITE.com
You will then be asked for your username and password. Type the
username and password that you were given by your webhosting company. Once in your
site you might have to look around a little, but the MMUI.mv file can often be found in
the Merchant2/modules/ui folder. BOOKMARK this page by adding it to your FAVORITES
folder for the next time you want to get to your MMUI.mv file.
Some ISPs may not allow your browser to FTP, in this case you will
need to use an FTP program such as WS_FTP or cute FTP.
RIGHT-CLICK on your MMUI.mv file and a dropdown box will open.
Select "COPY TO FOLDER" and another dialog box will open allowing you to
copy the file to any location you choose on your hard drive. You might as well open
your Windows Explorer now and rename the file to "MMUIoriginal.mv".
RIGHT-CLICK on the file and select RENAME. Also save or copy the file to another
location, such as a diskette, zip, or external hard drive.
OPEN the file you have now named "MMUIoriginal.mv" in
any text editor. Text editors work just fine for simple modifications, but if you're
going to be doing extensive modifications than PFE (Programmer's File Editor) may be just
the thing for you. Click here for a link to
the free download.
Now that your file is opened, SAVE it as MMUI.mv.
Make your changes and FTP this modified MMUI.mv file to your
website (see below).
HOW TO FTP to YOUR SITE
OPEN MS Windows Explorer, locate your modified MMUI.mv file,
RIGHT-CLICK on the file and select COPY.
FTP to your website. [Hopefully, you've bookmarked the page and
can get there from your FAVORITES folder.]
RIGHT-CLICK anywhere inside your IE browser window and select
Your modified MMUI.mv file will now upload to your website. You
will be asked if you want to overwrite the MMUI.mv that is currently there. Answer
you have completed the transfer, HTTP to your website [http://YOURSITE.com] and make sure
the changes are correct. If not, be prepared to restore the original MMUI.mv file to
your website. Don't forget to rename it from "MMUIoriginal.mv" to
"MMUI.mv" before uploading.
