    Lot of my time went to explain to people on how to add submenues wich was pretty complicated, so i had to swich back to the old menu. But i´ll look in to another nav bar that will do the job better and in a future version all this can be done in the admin area. For users that needs to add sub menues use the 2.1 version, it still works but is a bit more complicated. /Janne.K

    Hello A new version is out, mindsparx_admin 4.0 now there is 5 different themes available one of them is Stefan VS good looking theme. The old menu from version 2.0 is back, i had to many complaints with the menu from 2.1 so i changed it back, and i think its much better than the old one. You can see what the admin and themes looks like here http://www.mindsparx.org/mindsparx_admin/ /Janne.k

    Haha, where can i pick up my Oscar? i really want one... ivyfleur, no need to rename the styleshhet.css its just done so you know that it has been moved to the new folder. And about the buttons, try to enable/disable the button function in the header.php file and see if its still there. I´m abit bussy at the moment but i´ll try to add the buttons asap. The font used for the buttons is a font that most of you have , "Tahoma" dont have any smooth or similar just plain text like the screen below Wemseo The new menu that allows you to create submenus is a bit weird in Firefox so i recommend all new users to install the 2.0 version But if you really need subs then 2.1 is the one to use. I have explained in a previous page how to ad them, have a look here http://forums.oscommerce.com/index.php?sho...24354&st=80 To add submenues is complicated, and i couldnt find a easy way to do this... but ones you know how to add them ist easy :) /Janne.K

    Hello All, Sorry that i haven’t answered any questions for a while but i have been busy with other projects, but the problem with disappearing text in explorer is probably a simple fix, Try to delete the height (height="800px") for the table in header.php i think that’s the problem. /Janne.K

    Hello! Thanks for the fix evilonion. To add more drops to the top bar you need to create a new drop in the header.php file and then strip out the <td><tr> and add code from an existing /boxes/ file to your new /boxes/your_new_box.php file (you can compare a existing (boxes/file.php with your new one and you can see what you need to add). I guess that the new dropdown is not as good as the old one, it was created just so that a user can add submenues. But if you dont need submenues you sould use version 2.0 its exactly the same as 2.1 exept for the new java dropdown. And i think that 2.0 was more easy to understand than the new one. Im thinking of going back to the old dropdown system (http://www.mindsparx.se/mindsparx_admin/) , if there is any more releses of the admin. Any suggestions? /Janne.K

    Hello Scott, The "headers already sent by..." can appear for many reasons, in this case im almost sure that you have a whitespace before the <?php code starts, the <?php has to be all the way up in every file that starts with a php tagg take a look in all files that you edit when you install the contribution or STS. /Janne.K

    Hi! Yes it can be a bit confusing to add submenues, but i´ll try to explain, i´ll use admin/includes/boxes/catalog.php as an example. look for the variable $catalogSub1 here you need to add some <ul> and <li> for your sub menus, a example with two level subs can look like this: $catalogSub1 = '</li><li><a class="menuBoxContentLink" href="#">Example 1</a> <ul> <li><a href="your_link.php" class="menuBoxContentLink">first sub1</a></li> <li><a class="menuBoxContentLink" href="#">Example 2</a> <ul> <li><a href="your_link.php" class="menuBoxContentLink">second sub1</a></li> <li><a href="your_link.php" class="menuBoxContentLink">second sub2</a></li> </ul> </li> <li><a href="your_link.php" class="menuBoxContentLink">first sub2</a></li> <li><a href="your_link.php" class="menuBoxContentLink">first sub3</a></li> </ul> </li><li>'; When you are done with your submenu you need to ad the variable $catalogSub1 to the links below that code after any '</a>' . , and it should look something like this: '<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCTS_EXPECTED, '', 'NONSSL') . '" class="menuBoxContentLink">' . BOX_CATALOG_PRODUCTS_EXPECTED . '</a>' .$catalogSub1. and you will have submenues, Note the two dotts betwen the variable, they have to be there. you can create as manu subs you need, just name them $catalogSub1, $catalogSub2 etc... I hope this guide helps, /Janne.K

    Hello Stephan, your graphics looks awesome, your shop must look really good. I think that your boxes changes size everytime the description only has one line. You could increase the amount of text to be generated for the description, or simply add some height to your <td> look for: <td align="left" valign="top"><div style="padding-top:5px;"> and add some height to the td , something like this: <td height="80px" align="left" valign="top"><div style="padding-top:5px;"> that should hopefully do it. And i look forward to see your rising sun theme compatible with mindsparx_admin v2.1 ;) /Janne.K

    Ok, anyone else with the same problem? might be something i forgot when uploading the latest version... Btw, im about to upload mindsparx_admin for v3.0 Alpha, so anyone who likes the look of this admin there is one for v3.0 in a sec /Janne.K

    [Contribution] Mindsparx admin

    CGhoST, about mindsparx_specials it should be pretty easy to make the box even, looka at this line <td align="left" valign="top"><div style="padding-top:10px;"> if you add a height to the <td> and remove some of the padding it should be ok, something like this: <td align="left" height="30px" valign="top"><div style="padding-top:5px;"> Try different settings and it should be ok. About the info and buy now button , there is no info or buy now button for that contribution, but for the info button it should look something like this <a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, 'products_id=' . $new_products['products_id']) . '">' . tep_image_button('more_info.gif') . '</a> Im not sure about the buy now button, as it requires more code to the whole mindsparx_specials contrib. When looking at the code you pasted i can see that you are using variables from $featured_products, i dont know where that came from. I looked at my codes and couldnt find it there so that must be something you have done, anyway if you are using the $featured_products variable use this code instead for your info button <a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, 'products_id=' . $featured_products['products_id']) . '">' . tep_image_button('more_info.gif') . '</a> im not sure if i understood your question :rolleyes: /Janne.K

    Hi! I think that you have an older version of oscommerce, the earlier admins dont have support for creating administrators (i think) , and im not sure if the logoff feature is compatible with your version. And.... i forgot to say that if you want to install the Rising sun skin from Stephan on version 2.1 you need to move the images from admin/mindsparx_admin/template/risingsun/chrometheme to the image folder in the same directory. And then copy ddsmoothmenu.css and the js folder from the "blue" theme in to the "risingsin" theme... since we have installed a new dropmenu. /Janne.K

    hello lyonsperf, i liked the idea of submenus so i changed the contribution and installed a new dropdown menu that supports multi levels... So instead of adding more dropdowns you can add them as submenues and save some space. For those who has installed 2.0 or Stephans fantastic theme, i have added upgrade instructions. i havn't updated the demo yet but here is a picture of what it can do. There is a short guide on how to add submenus in the new download, and the code in admin/boxes/ has instructions on how to create subs. I hope you find this usefull, if not.. use 2.0 ;) /Janne.K

    Hello! When you install a new contribution and it needs a new box in the old column left it means that you need to create a complete new dropdown for it, there is a great guide written by Richard Cranium in the contribution page on how to do this, but I can explain quickly on what you need to do. If there is a new box in the admin/boxes/ folder that needs to go in to your store you need to strip down the <td><tr> tags and comment out some code and then add some, like the example below, (before and after), it looks difficult, but its pretty simple ones you know how to do this. Before: <!-- reports //--> <tr> <td> <?php $heading = array(); $contents = array(); $heading[] = array('text' => BOX_HEADING_BOXES, 'link' => tep_href_link(basename($PHP_SELF), tep_get_all_get_params(array('selected_box')) . 'selected_box=infobox')); if ($selected_box == 'infobox') { $contents[] = array('text' => '<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_INFOBOX_CONFIGURATION, 'gID=1', 'NONSSL') . '" class="menuBoxContentLink">' . BOX_HEADING_BOXES . '</a>'); } $box = new box; echo $box->menuBox($heading, $contents); ?> </td> </tr> <!-- reports_eof //--> After: <!-- reports //--> <?php $heading = array(); $contents = array(); $heading[] = array('text' => BOX_HEADING_BOXES, 'link' => tep_href_link(basename($PHP_SELF), tep_get_all_get_params(array('selected_box')) . 'selected_box=infobox')); // if ($selected_box == 'infobox') { // Add your links here start $contents[] = array('text' => '<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_INFOBOX_CONFIGURATION, 'gID=1', 'NONSSL') . '" class="menuBoxContentLink">' . BOX_HEADING_BOXES . '</a>'); // } // Add your old links here end // $box = new box; // echo $box->menuBox($heading, $contents); foreach($contents as $value) { echo $value['text']; } ?> <!-- reports_eof //--> I have that contribution installed , but i didnt create a new drop for it, i just placed a link to it in my admin/boxes/tools.php file '<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_INFOBOX_CONFIGURATION, 'gID=1', 'NONSSL') . '" class="menuBoxContentLink">' . BOX_HEADING_BOXES . '</a>'. And it looks like this: Good luck Janne.K

    hehe yeah he´s a little monster chewing on my leg when i work from home, Its easy to change image, just create a new .jpg image and name it adm_pic.jpg and replace the image in admin/template/blue/images folder. The size of the image is 163x24, if you want another size you probably need to change the size of the image in the admin/index.php file to. /Janne.k
