  4. Refresh your site to see the changes.

Some templates do not have such option in the admin panel of osCommerce. In this case, you will need to edit files to change the links.

  1. You should edit cm_social.php file from includes\modules\boxes folder. You can use FTP client or File manager in your cPanel to edit this file.

  2. Navigate to the file and open it in the Editor.

  3. Find this code:

     '    <li class="line_12"><a href="'.MODULE_BOXES_SOCIAL_BOX_TWITTER.'" target="_blank">' . MODULE_BOXES_SOCIAL_BOX_TWITTER_LI . '</a></li>' .

    And change this part of the code with your social link:

    '.MODULE_BOXES_SOCIAL_BOX_TWITTER.'

    The new code should look like this:

     '    <li class="line_12"><a href="https://twitter.com/KateDan49006148" target="_blank">' . MODULE_BOXES_SOCIAL_BOX_TWITTER_LI . '</a></li>' .
