  1. Hello,

     

    I am running sts v4 with a bunch of add ons. I have been running my store for about a year with no trouble, I use lightbox2 with no problem but now I wanted to do a custom template product info page so i activated the option in the admin, everything works great except the lightbox no longer works and the large images just open to a new page, I am sure its a simple fix but been trying for two days and can't find what the problem is. I also have installed more pics 6

     

    Thanks in advance.

  3. Re your ealier problem, the instructions do say only add if you have short description mod.

     

    If you update to the new version at Product Listing Enhancements, Thumbnails & Manufacturer Headings

    http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/6051 that will resolve your page issue. The new setup program there will update your existing one.

     

    A new contrib was created as its much changed, will still do the old stuff too though.

     

    Your borders problem has been delt with in the support thread of the new @ http://forums.oscommerce.com/index.php?showtopic=307010

     

     

    thanks sam

  6. i actually figured alot of stuff out on my own, andrew i tried using hte same setup that bill refered to you and i did not have any luck with it. I figured out how to use the more pics 6 v2 with lightbox and sts and looks good.

     

     

    Question for bill or any other sts expert.

     

    I installed Product extra fields, more pics 6 and a simple newsletter code. Everything works great but the STS product content page will not load, the product layout stays on default, also popup windows do not work goes directly to the file.

    Do you know what file is should look into to try to fix this (what file request this information?)

     

    thanks


  7. hey bill.

     

    still no luck , im going to start from the ground up with a fresh install.

     

    what additional image (that has a popup or works with lightbox) would work best with sts, more specfically for a product content template page (in teh content folder). Or if you could explain how i might go about creating a place holder for the content page. More Pics 6 has one that worked but the image would not pop up, maybe if i were to reinstall fresh it would work.

    thanks for any recommendations or guidance.


  8. geesh everytime i think i am done i run into another problem, i recently tried to install more_pics 6 but was not really what i wanted so i ended up going with ultra pics 2.7 (with the sts) installed and everything is working but was wondering what the place holders are for the content product template. there were no files included to explain this.


  9. hey i just installed, everything seems great

     

    i am using STS and was wondering how to get the meta tags to be displayed on the product template page? the $placeholder

     

     

    anyone have experience with this?

     

    thanks so much in advance.


  10. hey i just isntalled mo pics 6 1.3 and have it running with sts. I'm using the $mopics_output and the the thumbnail shows up but will not let me "click to enlarge" when i click nothinghappends. Then when i add a 2nd picture both pictures are no longer there. Any idea what the problem could be. more concerned about the "click to enlarge" not functioning. thanks


  11. hey i installed product extra fields "j" and works great but when i go to search i get this error

    Products meeting the search criteria

     

    "1066 - Not unique table/alias: 'pd'

     

    select count(distinct p.products_id) as total from (products p left join products_to_products_extra_fields p2pef on p.products_id=p2pef.products_id) left join manufacturers m on m.manufacturers_id=p.manufacturers_id, products_description pd left join specials s on p.products_id = s.products_id, categories c, products_to_categories p2c, products_description pd, categories c, products_to_categories p2c where p.products_status = '1' and p.products_id = pd.products_id and pd.language_id = '1' and p.products_id = p2c.products_id and p2c.categories_id = c.categories_id and ((pd.products_name like '%stink%' or p.products_model like '%stink%' or m.manufacturers_name like '%stink%' or p2pef.products_extra_fields_value like '%stink%') )

     

    [TEP STOP]"

     

     

    anywone know what to look for to fix this?

     

    "stink" is my frustrated search word.


  12. I would try removing this bit from the code you posted and see if it works

     

    tep_draw_input_field('to_email_address', 'enter email', 'size="10"') . ' ' .

     

    I don't know if it tries to call the email address when you click the submit button or not, but it doesn't look like it needs it. You may have to check the page that it goes to when you click to see if it is requiring that info though.

    cool worked, i actully did the same earlier but did not work but i forgot to get rid of the "." All set now!


  13. real quick how can i get rid of the input field, i just want the image up if its just going to shoot you to another page anyways.http://hoboarona.com/product_info.php?cPath=22_28&products_id=31 for reference i want to get rid of the input field above the "tell a friend" image.

     

     

    ?>

    <!-- tell_a_friend //-->

    <tr>

    <td>

    <?php

    $info_box_contents = array();

    $info_box_contents[] = array('text' => BOX_HEADING_TELL_A_FRIEND);

     

    new infoBoxHeading($info_box_contents, false, false);

     

    $info_box_contents = array();

    $info_box_contents[] = array('form' => tep_draw_form('tell_a_friend', tep_href_link(FILENAME_TELL_A_FRIEND, '', 'NONSSL', false), 'get'),

    'align' => 'center',

    'text' => tep_draw_input_field('to_email_address', 'enter email', 'size="10"') . ' ' . tep_image_submit('button_tell_a_friend.gif', BOX_HEADING_TELL_A_FRIEND) . tep_draw_hidden_field('products_id', $HTTP_GET_VARS['products_id']) . tep_hide_session_id() . '<br>' . BOX_TELL_A_FRIEND_TEXT);

     

    new infoBox($info_box_contents);

    ?>

    </td>

    </tr>

    <!-- tell_a_friend_eof //-->

     

     

    i tried to comment out what i thought would be it, no luck.


  14. Danielle,

     

    Be sure you are not adding anything extra (other than what was the default setting) in the "Files to Include" fields in the STS Modules in the admin. It appears you may have added some filenames in these fields and now STS is looking for these files in those folders specified in the error message.

     

    Also, if you had a previous version of STS installed, older than version 4.1, you would need to remove all of the STS defines in the admin/includes/configure.php and includes/configure.php files that were created by those earlier versions of STS. All STSv4.x versions no longer require you to edit the configure.php files since they install using a module, much like the payment and shipping modules.

     

    Hope this helped,

    the last thing i have to figure out is how to add more attribute fields to my products using sts and im done.

     

    thanks everybody


  16. Mike and Josh....

     

    Keep in mind that when using a content template, it is only for the "content" portion of the page, not for the header, right & left columns and footer. The main template will take care of those areas.

     

    How it works, general template:

     

    Main templates are templates containing the columns, header and footer. The center of the page only contains the $content placeholder.

    With the Product Info Module, you have the possibility to define a separate "content template" that will replace the $content of the main template. Content templates must be located in the "content" folder inside the templates folder (includes/sts_templates/*your template folder*/content)

     

    When the Product Info Module is enabled, it looks in the template folder to see what templates exist. It is possible to define templates based on the product ID or it's category ID. Templates must be located in the templates folder (includes/sts_templates/*your template folder*).

     

    It works like this (first found first used):

     

    1. Check for a main template based on the product ID, for example product with ID 4:

     

    1.1 Use product_info.php_4.html if exists.

     

    2. Check for category specific main template, based on the category ID where the product is located. (Example below with a product located in sub-category 22, located in category 11)

     

    2.1 Use product_info.php_c11_22.html if exists.

     

    2.2 Use product_info.php_c11.html if exists.

     

    2.3 Use product_info.php.html if exists.

     

    3. No specific template found, use default template as defined in the default module (by default it is sts_template.html)

     

     

     

    Now that we have a main template, STS will look to see if there is a content template, based on product ID and the category where it belongs: example with product ID4 (STS looks in the 'content' folder):

     

    1.1 Use product_info.php_4.html if exists.

     

    2. Check for category specific content template, based on the category ID where the product is located. (Example below with a product located in sub-category 22, located in category 11)

     

    2.1 Use product_info.php_c11_22.html if exists.

     

    2.2 Use product_info.php_c11.html if exists.

     

    2.3 Use product_info.php.html if exists.

     

    If no content template is found then do not use any, $content will come from the original catalog/product_info.php .

     

    So...your manufacturer box and Tell a Friend box would not be inserted into the 'content' template but should be inserted into your main template that holds the header, columns and footer portions of the page.

     

     

    i will try that

     

    the problem i see with it however is i wont be be able to place it directly where i want to (like next to the add a cart button)

     

    if im putting it with $content on the main cat template. Ill let you know how it goes

     

    thanks!


  17. If all you are wanting is for the Tell a Friend box to display on all of your product pages, just simply create a product_info.php.html template in your template folder (not the content folder) and then add the $tellafriendbox tag. You may be interested in the $specialfriendbox instead as it will display the special box if there is not product ID in the URL. Do not use this placeholder together with $tellafriendbox or $specialbox, or you'll sometimes have the same infobox displayed twice!

    i have been working on this for a few hours,

     

    when i take my product template out of the templates/content folder the tell a friend box will work but then the content makers wont work like $starform, $productdesc ect...

     

    but when i move the file into the content of the template page the friend box will not work but all the content markers will.

     

    trying to figure out what i have set wrong
