Where can I find the copy used in the shoperror.asp page. I need to change the wording for my use.

shoperror.asp displays many error messages which are generated by routines. The only way to change the wording of particular error messages is to edit the language records for the text displayed. You can search the language table for specific 'captions' eg not found.

Open the shoperror file and before the ShopPageTrailer put in whatever you want.

We have a message (which is an include file) which says the product may be discontinued etc plus 6 random products.

The error message automatically generated is still there (e.g. colour selection needed) but then we can have our own extra bits as well.

Yeah, VP-ASP has a pretty shabby system for displaying error messages using the shoperror.asp page (sometimes using querystring variables to deliver the full message).

One sort of rough and rugged fix would be to give certain error messages a number instead of actual text, and then use vbscript to display something different depending on which error number is passed.

I use this method to distinguish between a dropped idle session, a canceled order, and a simple "you forgot to give this required information".

What I plan on doing in the future is completely bypassing the error routine (and the shoperror.asp page) and creating custom messages for every necessary individual circumstance. Unless VP-ASP gets to this first (HINT).
