Version 1.2 has been uploaded to the Addons section. This includes a new module: a horizontal/side scroller. This box can be used as a specials, new products, or featured products module. It shows images of your products scrolling across the page. The most common options are provided as Admin settings.

This makes a total of 10 modules currently available. Anybody who wants to can add their own favorite front page addon as a module. If you need help figuring out the code, just ask. Please let us know hare if you upload a new module.

Regards
Jim

Steve -- that sounds like it would make a useful module. Go ahead and do it if you want. The more modules the better for everyone.

Thanks Jim,
works O.K.
It would be very nice however if all the all needed parts in the module could be MultiLanguage.

That's due to the database structure. The Admin uses the configuration database table to store the text, and that is single-language. Making it multi-language would require a major restructuring of the osCommerce admin. Not exactly modular....

I knew someone was going to ask that. This is a completely modular system, with (currently) 10 modules, each of which has up to 30 different settings, and each setting has anywhere from two to thousands of possible values. So, lessee, carry the two ... I think we can safely say that there are billions of different ways this could look. So, are you going to provide the storage for those billions of screenshots? And the team of dedicated testers to spend the next several years producing them? No? Too bad.... /whistling.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':-"' /> /crying.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':'(' /> /sad.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':(' />

Works great, thank you.

A feature I would like to see is, on both featured and new products to randomly show images that are predetermined by me, not scrolling.

Keep up the good work

Cheers

PS I have some modules installed if somebody wants to see it.

Hi,

I now have the 1.2 version and everything is working great. I would like to see a module that shows manufacturers on the front page. I sell electrical components and having a search by manufacturer would be a great enhancement

I've never seen that before. Is there an Addon that yo know of for a Manufacturer's search? I could probably come up with something, but I'm in the middle of another project right now and don't have much time to spare.

Not what I was asking for. No need for billions of screen shots, Just one link to one site that has this add-on in place would do just fine.
Just want to get a feel for what this add-on offers in the most generic, out of the box way.
PS: There are a lot of free image hostings at your disposal these days so no worries about the storage, http://www.google.ca...free image host

Yes, I know about image hosting. I have my own hosting account, so I could put some there. What you are still missing is the fact that this is a highly flexible, modular system, with literally millions of possible configurations. So which one do you want?

OK, here. Just to stop this for all time. It can look like this. That's just one of the possibilities, of course, but that's the one you get.

Hi there,

All the functions appear to be working fine with the exception of the Scroller and Featured modules, each time you clk [Install Module] from Front Page , the following error is listed at the top of the screen

Warning: featured(includes/functions/modules/front_page/featured.php) [function.featured]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /nfs/c06/h01/mnt/88348/domains/store.trainingfx.com/html/includes/modules/front_page/featured.php on line 39

Warning: scroller(includes/functions/modules/front_page/featured.php) [function.scroller]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /nfs/c06/h01/mnt/88348/domains/store.trainingfx.com/html/includes/modules/front_page/scroller.php on line 38

The rest of the module appears to load below, but when you try to install "Featured"

You get

Warning: featured(includes/functions/modules/front_page/featured.php) [function.featured]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /nfs/c06/h01/mnt/88348/domains/store.trainingfx.com/html/includes/modules/front_page/featured.php on line 39

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /nfs/c06/h01/mnt/88348/domains/store.trainingfx.com/html/includes/modules/front_page/featured.php:39) in /nfs/c06/h01/mnt/88348/domains/store.trainingfx.com/html/tfxstoreadmin/includes/functions/general.php on line 34

When you try to install "Scroller" , you get the same error above with "Scroller.php" instead. When I looked in the folder listed above , I found featured.php , but not scroller.php


further, trying to load the module "Banner Rotator" , errors below:

Warning: reset() [function.reset]: Passed variable is not an array or object in /nfs/c06/h01/mnt/88348/domains/store.trainingfx.com/html/tfxstoreadmin/modules.php on line 227

Warning: Variable passed to each() is not an array or object in /nfs/c06/h01/mnt/88348/domains/store.trainingfx.com/html/tfxstoreadmin/modules.php on line 228

Looking at the line 38 and 39 in featured and scroller respectively shows the same line of code " include_once( DIR_WS_FUNCTIONS . 'modules/front_page/featured.php');"

All the other modules except these three load perfectly.

Thanks

Anthony

Hello, thanks for the great module!

I have a small problem, not sure if I have done something wrong.

I am getting a javascript error when using the banner rotator function, its pointing at this code

<script type="text/javascript"> 
  jQuery(document).ready(function(){
    bannerRotator('#bannerRotator', 500,  4000 );
  });
</script>

Any ideas on what I may have done wrong or what is causing this?

The other modules seem to all be working fine...........

OK I have found the problem

There is a small error in this file

catalog/includes/modules/front_page/banner_rotator.php

Change on line 36 / 37

$header = '<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="ext/modules/banner_rotator/stylesheet.css" />' . "\n";
$header .= '<script type="text/javascript" src="ext/modules/banner_rotator/bannerRotator.js"></script>' . "\n";

to

$header = '<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="ext/modules/front_page/banner_rotator/stylesheet.css" />' . "\n";
$header .= '<script type="text/javascript" src="ext/modules/front_page/banner_rotator/bannerRotator.js"></script>' . "\n";

Hope this helps....
