    BTSv1.2 Support

    To install the BTS you only need to copy the files to the right locations and insert the sql and it should work. A blank screen does not sound familiar :unsure:

    BTSv1.2 Support

    Hi Lester, No it won't. These tables are generated by includes/classes/boxes.php. It seems to me that your options are: 1) wrap a div (or another table :rolleyes: ) around it, and assign a CSS class to it or 2) make small mods to the boxes class to assign CSS classes to these boxes or 3) create a new box class which makes it easyer to make changes to these boxes 1 and 2 are quick mods but somewhat limited, 3 gives unlimited possibilities of course, but it will be quite some work (especially if your not a programmer) So by itself you are on the right track, but these are exactly those boxes which are not yet rewritten to be "templated" Don't know about any mods, but they may exist (never searched for it). Someone has experimented with rewriting (a part of) the box class to div's. It' unfinished code but if you're really interested I will try to look it up.

    Tip for non BTS users: it's (probably) very easy to use the BTS dynamic meta tags controller even without using the BTS itself! Just replace the original osC title tag and meta tag lines by: <?php require(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'meta_tags.php'); ?> <title><?php echo META_TAG_TITLE; ?></title> <meta name="description" content="<?php echo META_TAG_DESCRIPTION; ?>" > <meta name="keywords" content="<?php echo META_TAG_KEYWORDS; ?>" > And copy the BTS meta_tag.php file to your "catalog/includes" directory, and your done! Untested, but I'm pretty sure it will work. If some one tries this, please confirm if it works (or not).

    @Jeremy: it's probably to late for you now, but there is a special BTSv1.2 (compatible with BTSv1.3) version in this package: http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,1768 @femto2nd: The most difficult part about the BTS metatags controller is probably to dicover it exists and where it is (allthough a file search for "meta" in your shop will bring you there as fast as lightning of course). Once you have found the "catalog/includes/meta_tags.php" file you should open it read the "// comments" and maybe read some more "/* comments */" and make any changes in the file itself (quite easy, you only need a simple text editor). You need to know what defines are and how they work though (I suppose that's explained in the WIKI somewhere because without knowing about the defines you won't get far with osC anyway). But the best part about this meta tags controller is that you normally don't even need to know how it works, or even how to change settings, Brenden already did all the hard work for you. All you need to do is fill in nice product names and descriptions (admin::categories), and the dynamic meta tags will be created automagicly for you.

    I don't think it's crazy at all. Actually it's a little tricky that you better can't install the sql file more than once. It's the only step you better skip when re?nstalling.

    BTSv1.2 Support

    Hi Mark, doesn't your wife understand the sooner your shop is ready the sooner you'll both be rich and famous? :D I have some questions for you: 1) Do you have an url so we can take a look? 2) Why did you post your configure.php file? 3) How many times did you load the BTS.sql file? If you load it several times it becomes unclear which of the double settings will or won't work. So you will first have to remove any "doubles" somehow.

    [contribution] Simple Template System (sts)

    Looking at the posted date and time you even replied before you posted :blink: Tip: there is an STS support thread somewhere on these forums.

    BTSv1.2 Support

    Hi Greg, sorry but I don't think your problem has anything to do with the BTS. Never heard of any problem like that before i.c.w. the BTS. Are you 100% sure you didn't make any other change to the shop which could be the cause of your problem?

    How To Make Contributions

    doing a file compare to your "starting point" would give you this info I suppose. (and after checking carefully it's all correct, you can upload that yourself as an update to the contribution if you think it's usefull for others too)

    How To Make Contributions

    Don't know if awkward is the right word, but editting the post to link the contri, annoucement and support thread to each other indeed is a real pain. Even almost impossible sometimes, when the forums are a "bit" slow. I think automatic linking/setup is a must, at least from the contrib download to the to the support thread.

    Sorry, my mistake. It's because this boxheading consists of several td's in a row and the style is applied to all those td's. And it's from left to right in each of th td's, if it was an image from top to bottom (like in the "OneTable") it wouldn't probably be visible. hth

    Hi Stryker, it's repeated because ther's a repeat-x in the stylesheet: td.infoBoxHeadingLT , .infoBoxHeading , .productListing-heading { background : #fee662 url(images/background.jpg) repeat-x; } using an image like you are using, you should remove the repeat or change it to a repeat-y (if you use the repeat you can use a smaller image and stil fill the whole space independant of the size) Sometimes I forget to mention, but only the small side infoboxes have classes and id's assigned. It is possible to assign classes/id's to the content boxes in several ways. Some boxes are easy to edit in the "templates/../content/" template files. Others need changes to the box class, or you can wrap a <div> around it in "templates/../content/" and assign a class/id to the <div> to make styling specific boxes a little easyer. Actually easy styling of the all content info boxes should be included in a next BTS version. Allthough this should not be extremely difficult, it always is quite timeconsuming, so if anybody reading this has some spare time and likes to to it....... :) cheers, Paul
