Feature Pack 2: Deprecated feature

Changing text in store pages and in notification messages

Using the Change Pages page in the WebSphere Commerce Accelerator, you can change the text for selected portions of your store.


  1. Open the WebSphere Commerce Accelerator.
  2. Click Store > Change Pages. The Change Pages page opens. If you do not see this menu, then your logon ID does not have the appropriate authority to perform this task. Contact your Site Administrator. The portions of text available for you to change are listed on the page. To view where this text is situated in the store, click View Location. A preview of the page that contains the selected text is displayed.
  3. To change the text, in the Change Pages page, edit or replace the existing text in the corresponding scroll boxes.
    Important: The text displayed in the scroll box for each page may contain programming conventions, including HTML tagging, and placeholders for variables that are retrieved from the database.
    HTML tagging An example of HTML tagging is <b>Personal information</b>, which means Personal Information will display in bold when rendered by a browser. If you want to change how the font displays in the page, you will need an understanding of HTML.
    Database placeholders A placeholder for a database variable displays as follows: {0} respects your privacy, where {0} is the placeholder. If you want to maintain these placeholders do not change them.
    Adding links If you want to add links to other pages, you must add the prefix /wcsstore to the front of the file path. For example, <img src="/wcsstore/ mystore/upload/folder name/your image.jpg">, where mystore is the name of the store directory you specified when creating your store.
  4. When you have finished changing the page, click OK to save your settings and return to the WebSphere Commerce Accelerator home page.
  5. If your store supports multiple languages:
    1. Change the store text in one of the supported languages by completing steps 1 to 4 above.
    2. To return to the WebSphere Commerce Accelerator home page:
      • Click Select Select , or
      • In the breadcrumb trail, select Home. The home page displays.
    3. In the home page, from the Language field, select another language that your store supports. Click OK.
    4. Change the store text (repeat steps 2 to 4 above), inputting the information in the selected language.
    5. Repeat for each language your store supports.
