$ to £ for: "Featured Product" and "Most Popular"


I've been through the "changing Currency" documentation (ps_changing_currency.pdf) twice now, I have done everything that it details, and updated all of the files on my live server, but for some reason the home (index.php) page of my store still displays "$" of the "Featured Product" and "Most Popular" sections..

Everywhere else through out the site has changed to "£" please can someone tell me how to change the homepage!..

I've also just noticed that you don't give any mention of the Admin "Home.php" page in your "changing currency" documentation!..

For anyone else with the same problem you'll have to update this page too!...

WA Staff!.. Can you please update your "Changing Currency" documentation, and please answer my first question!.. (Above!)..

I had the same problem, but iv modified my home page and im not sure what i done but i deleted the class "price" in the home page div and then all of a sudden it changed back to a £ sign.

it's not an easy change and what I did was to view each page in a browser and then look at the code and change the$ for a £, slow but sure.

As to the indexpage assuming it's as downloaded the two products are not database driven they are simply HTML so you can change the $ for £ but once you add products the problem will be solved anyway.

for the featured product, the code that displays the price is
<h4>$'. (number_format($row_FeaturedRS['ProductPrice'],2)) .'</h4>

for the popular product, the price code is:
<h4>$'. number_format($row_MostPopularRS['ProductPrice'],2) .'</h4>

you can change the dollor sign on those two lines to convert it to the pound symbol.

I will forward you comments about the admin pages to the documentation team.
