How to Disable Ads by Google

1. Find the Windows hosts file on your computer. If you are running Windows 98 or ME, the file is probably located in the C:\Windows folder. Windows NT usually stores its host file at C:\WINNT\system32\drivers\etc. Windows XP and Vista store the hosts file at C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc. If you are running Windows 2000, you can find the hosts file at one of the last two directories listed above. Look for the file named “Hosts.”

2. Right-click the hosts file. Click “Open,” and then choose “”Select the program from a list.” Click “Notepad.” The hosts file opens up as a text file in Notepad.

3. On the first empty line of the hosts file, copy and paste the following:

127.0.0.1 pagead.googlesyndication.com

127.0.0.1 pagead2.googlesyndication.com

4. Save the file.

5. Allow the change if prompted with a warning from your antivirus or spyware programs.

Add Manufacturers in carousel box in OpenCart

The default installation of OpenCart has the brands/manufacturers displayed in a carousel at the bottom of the home page. Updating the manufacturers in Admin->Catalog->Manufacturers will not affect that. If you want to change this you’ll need to update the manufacturers’ banner.

To update the banner go to Admin->Setting->Layout->Banner. Here you can update the Manufacturer banner to display the manufacturers you want.

Some people don’t know this and try to play with Carousel module or Manufacturers in Catalog, but they have to update the banners in system layout.
