Some users of OneStepCheckout needs to change the <title> of the checkout page in order to better match their site (translate into local language, and so on). In order to change the title of the page, you need to make a change to the '''onestepcheckout.xml''' layout file that comes with Magento.

First you need to find the correct XML file to change.

  • In Magento 1.3 installations, the file you need is located at: '''app/design/frontend/default/default/layout/onestepcheckout.xml'''
  • In Magento 1.4 installations, the file you need is located at: '''app/design/frontend/base/default/layout/onestepcheckout.xml'''

If you want your change to work through upgrades, you will need to copy the onestepcheckout.xml file from default/default/layout or base/default/layout to default/yourthemename/layout. Then you can make the changes there, and they will be kept when you upgrade with a newer version of OneStepCheckout.

In order to change the text, open the XML fine in your favorite editor and search for: <code><action method="setTitle"><title>One Step Checkout</title></action></code>

Change the contents between <title> and save. Then you need to refresh your cache, before accessing the checkout in the frontend. The title should now be updated.
