Note: This solution requires basic programming skills

If you're using the [MM_Form_Message type='error'] SmartTag on your checkout page, this SmartTag is responsible for outputting any error messages that come from MemberMouse. The exact error message that should be displayed is passed to the checkout page via the URL querystring in the message parameter:

Since the error message is passed through the querystring it's stored in the PHP $_GET array and can be accessed in PHP as follows: $_GET['message']. If you are technically inclined, you can write code to detect particular messages coming from MemberMouse and then if you'd like to change them you can set the new message in the $_GET array: (Here is a Sample Script)

$_GET['message'] = "This is my custom error message";

You'll just need to make sure you do this early enough in the page execution such that it happens before the MemberMouse [MM_Form_Message type='error'] SmartTag attempts to display the message on the screen.

This is where the PHP interface comes in handy. In order to get a head start on this process, we have included this Sample Script for you as mentioned above.

Below is a list of some of the possible error messages MemberMouse may present: (Note: This is only a Partial list as an example of messages your users may see.)
