I am using Magento 1.7. I am not the original developer of the website, that's why I don't know how everything was configured.

I want to change the instructions of the payment method bank transfer. I found that they are defined in Admin -> System -> Configuration -> Sales -> Payment methods -> Bank Transfer Payment -> Instructions. I also saw that the templated being used is banktransfer.phtml, under app/design/frontend/base/default/template/payment/info).

However, I changed the text in the Admin and I don't see any change in the frontend. I already cleared Magento's and browser's cache.

Any ideas on what I am missing or doing wrong? Thank you.

Edit After the discussion with @Sunil Patel, I couldn't manage to find what was happening. Instead, I commented the code responsible for printing the text, in banktransfer.phtml, and I included the following line, which finally worked fine:

        <td><?php echo $instructionsBankTransfer = Mage::getStoreConfig('payment/banktransfer/instructions'); ?></td>
  • please check store wise. – Sunil Patel Jul 14 '17 at 8:29
  • I already checked all the configuration scopes and changed the text in all of them – LeCodeur Jul 14 '17 at 8:30

If you already in backend then may be it will added static into file.


check above file into your theme.

Or check

app\code\core\Mage\Payment\Model\Method\Banktransfer.php may be it will overwrite into app\code\local\Mage\Payment\Model\Method\Banktransfer.php

check function

 public function getInstructions()
        return trim($this->getConfigData('instructions'));

Also check in core_config_data if you did find any thing

  • Thanks for you answer. However I didn't find the text in the file that you mention. There is a bunch of php there but not my text. Maybe one of the PHP functions is retrieving the text? Any other ideas of where it can be located? Thank you. – LeCodeur Jul 14 '17 at 8:40
  • Updated code plz check – Sunil Patel Jul 14 '17 at 9:16
  • @LeCodeur have you checked? – Sunil Patel Jul 14 '17 at 9:47
  • I just checked and did not find any hardcoded text. The function getConfigData() seems to be defined in Abstract.php under app/code/core/Mage/Payment/Model/Method/ and the code is if (null === $storeId) { $storeId = $this->getStore(); } $path = 'payment/'.$this->getCode().'/'.$field; return Mage::getStoreConfig($path, $storeId); – LeCodeur Jul 14 '17 at 10:09
  • but you can in that function which value get it. it is final function you just need to debug. – Sunil Patel Jul 14 '17 at 10:11
