Trying to add text above footer
I'm thinking that I need more food for Google on my main page, so I'm trying to add a block of text after my category images and before my footer on the main page only, but my text isn't showing up. I read several posts on how to add text after the main body and before the footer, and as a result I did this:
I went to my root/includes/templates/template_default/templates file and I'm trying to edit the tpl_index_default.php
I'm not a coder, but I tried to figure it out by myself without having to ask you guys, and I can't get it to work -
This is what I put before the </div> at the end of the page but it doesn't work. Obviously i have to format what text goes inside the () but temporarily i put in the following sample text - (THIS IS WHERE I WILL PUT MY TEXT)
this is what I added to the bottom of my tpl_index_template -
<?php include(THIS IS WHERE I WILL PUT MY TEXT); ?>
that didn't work so i tried this -
<?php include(THIS IS WHERE I WILL PUT MY TEXT)); ?><?php } ?>
and that's not working either. i don't even know if i'm putting it in the right area. can someone give me direction, please. and as always A HUGE THANK YOU for all your help.
I DID IT, I actually built a working cart, with the help of so many of you, Stevesh, Schoolboy, RescoCCC, to name a few. I just take one bite out of the elephant at a time and try to keep my sense of humor...
