    [contribution] Simple Template System (sts)

    I was speaking to this freelancer who has worked with OSCommerce and he says designing with STS is not flexible. I was under the impression that with STS any design is possible. Please tell me this freelancer doesn't know what he is talking about.

    [contribution] Simple Template System (sts)

    Hi bkellum, Thanks for the prompt reply. My #2 above... "includes/sts_templates/test/sts_blank_template.html" file shows the code I have used. #3 Shows the screenshot of what the browser displays. As you can see $breadcrumbs is displaying the correct information. Whereas, $categorybox is NOT displaying correctly. I have used "includes/sts_templates/full/sts_template.html" as a default template and it's still the same problem. I have checked if I installed all the files and it seems I have. I still can't nail the problem. Thanks vj

    [contribution] Simple Template System (sts)

    Hi, Actually, I haven't made any changes. I just followed the steps of STS installation. The "includes/sts_templates/test/sts_template.html" file is the one that was provided. No change was made to it. So I made "sts_blank_template.html" the default template file as you suggested. Here are some more snapshots and details. ******************************** 1. The store is in a folder. eg. www.mydomain.com/myfolder/ 2. Here is the code I have in "includes/sts_templates/test/sts_blank_template.html" file. <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"> <html $htmlparams> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-us"> <!--$headcontent--> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="stylesheet.css"> </head> <body> $breadcrumbs <br> $myaccountlogoff <br> $categorybox </body> </html> 3. Here is what it looks like in the browser. NOTE: $breadcrumbs shows correctly $myaccountlogoff shows correctly $categorybox shows "$categorybox" This is my main concern. 4. Here are some STS module admin settings. NOTE: Popup image and Product Info are NOT activated at the moment. Again, my biggest issue is : $categorybox and some others showing as text instead of showing whatever it's supposed to show on the browser.

    I installed STS v 4.5.8. I have oscommerce-2.2rc2a The default products and categories are still there. I am an intermediate PHP/MySQL person, but new to OSCommerce. I am just testing (not a live site) right now for learning purposes. Here is a snapshot of what I have so far. I see $categorybox $manufacturerbox .... .... Please suggest the code changes or any admin processes I am missing. I also have a couple of other questions: 1. I am guessing it is possible to have a separate HTML page designed slightly different for each product, right ? Meaning will I be able to pick a particular product HTML file and make changes just to that product page without effecting other product pages? eg, Product1.html is differently designed from Product2.html 2. Does the Ultimate SEO URL work with an STS template site ? http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,2823 3. Are the data in the product HTML pages dynamically connected to the database and will automatically update with the database ? Thanks in advance, vj

    STS template system - EXAMPLES

    I was looking for a way to have a separate HTML page for each of my products. I wanted to be able to do a slightly different design for each product. I have OSC 2.2 RC2a and STS 4.5.8 I have 4 quetions. 1. I am guessing it is possible to have a separate HTML page designed slightly different for each product, right ? Meaning will I be able to pick a particular product HTML file and make changes just to that product page ? 2. How much work is it to have a separate HTML page for each product, if the design were to be the same ? 3. Does the Ultimate SEO URL work with an STS template site ? http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,2823 4. Are the data in the product HTML pages dynamically connected to the database and will automatically update with the database ? Thanks vj
