Hi, I have a problem that i need the homepage of a xcart site to use a different head.tpl than the rest of the site, but the head.tpl is pulled into one global file.

I have recreated the 2nd file and called it head2.tpl and basically i want to say

(by the way this is not supposed to represent real code as i have no clue for this)

if homepage/index then {include file="head.tpl" }

else use: {include file="head2.tpl" }

If anyone can advise that would be great, need this asap.

Many thanks in advance

What scripting language are you using? If I were doing this in PHP it would be:

if($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] = "index.php"){
   include('head.tpl');
} else {
             include('head2.tpl');
}

Check out the PHP Super Globals, they come in handy for these kinds of situations.
