Follow these steps to create a new infobox

Connect to the server where osCommerce is installed through FTP or any file manager. Copy or download file located at “includes/modules/boxes/bm_information.php” and open it for editing.

Find all entries with “bm_information” and replace “information” with any other name which you want to use as module name. Also, find all entries with “INFORMATION” and change them accordingly. Make sure to keep them in caps.

Save the file and upload it to the server in the same location as “bm_information.php”.

Then find another file “includes/languages/english/modules/boxes/bm_information.php” and copy or download it for editing. Make sure to give a name to this file different than the original file name.

Find all entries with “INFORMATION” and change them the same way as it was done with the previous file. File name should match the first file name as well. Upload the file to the same location

Login to osCommerce admin panel and navigate to “Modules>Boxes” and click on “Install Module” button in the right upper corner. There we should find our new module for information box. To install it simply click on “Install Module” button.

Once done, you can use a new information box in osCommerce. Go to the website front end to check how it’s looking.
