  1. Hi!

    I've installed this very cool contribution on my site at www.tooltrolley.co.uk and it looks great. However, I have noticed that if an image is clicked on, the lightbox effect displays perfectly, but the carousel continues to slide. This means that by the time you have looked at the enlarged picture in the lightbox, the product has scrolled out of view, so that you can't click on it to view full details. Is it possible to pause the carousel until the lightbox is closed, alternatively, could a "view full details" button be included in the lightbox?


  2. hi,

    @NeilColeclough

    I visited your site.

    with or without my add-on, firefox is in quirks mode !

    read this first : http://www.cs.tut.fi/~jkorpela/quirks-mode.html

    The excessive width problem is due to a code of standards that fail to comply.

    example of error found on your site :

    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" >

    <link rel="icon" href="animated_favicon1.gif" type="image/gif" >

    declared after the </ head>

    so, you have to correct all your mistakes before you install the module. this plugin for firefox is very useful -> http://chrispederick.com/work/web-developer/

    How do I execute the sql file??????? :

    -> http://drupal.org/node/81995

     

    I must admit I know nothing of "quirks mode" do thanks for the pointer. I took a look at the link you provided above and understand that quirks mode kicks in when the doctype is missing. I've checked my index page and it appears to be the very first line in the file. Could you offer any further help in where I should be looking for the errors on the site please...?


  3. Thanks for your help in the French support forum. I've tried enclosing the include on the index page in a table, but I still have a problem with page width. No matter where I put the table, it causes the page to become enormously wide and needing a scroll bar at the bottom. Most of the page content disappears off to the right!! The problem only appears in Internet Explorer (I'm using IE7), but doesn't appear in FireFox.

     

     

    The code I'm using to include the carousel on the index page is:-

     

    <table align="center" border="0" width=100%>

    <tr>

    <td><?php include(DIR_WS_MODULES . FILENAME_SPECIALS_PRODUCTS_CAROUSEL); ?></td>

    </tr>

    </table>

     

     

    I've uploaded an example of the problem to:-

     

    http://www.tooltrolley.co.uk/problem.php

     

    An identical page, but without the carousel is at:-

     

    http://www.tooltrolley.co.uk/index.php

     

     

    This such an attractive contribution, I'd love to include it on my site - any help you can give will be truly appreciated!!

     

    The excessive width problem seems to be linked to the number of specials the site has on offer. It is as if the screen width is being prepared to accommodate the display of all specials even though only 3 are displayed in the carousel. Is there a restriction on the total number of specials the site can have listed for this contribution to work (my site has lots!!)


  4. How do I execute the sql file???????

     

    1. - Open the sql file in notepad.

    2. - Copy the entire contents to the clipboard.

    3. - Select your store's database from phpMyadmin (you'll find a link to this in cpanel).

    4. - Click on the SQL tab.

    5. - Paste the contents of the clipboard into the large SQL box.

    6. - Click 'Go'

    7. - The sql file will make all necessary additions to your store's database, including installing the admin panel control (this appears in the 'configuration' section of the admin panel menu.

     

    That's it - sql file exectuted!


  5. There a line you need to uncomment to upload the file to Google. It's in the instructions. Step 7?

     

    Thanks gor your reply. In actual fact the line you refer to is already uncommented in the contribution download package. I did get to the cause of the problem though. Many hosting companies disable the ftp_connect() function for security. A quick call to my host and the job's done! A tremendous contribution that'll save me hours every week - thanks FlyingMonkey

  7. My sincere apologies if this has been covered elsewhere - I've looked really hard!

    I installed this excellent contribution this morning, following instructions carefully. I also encountered the inactive button problem, and used the code provided by Flying Monkey - perfect, thanks!

     

    However, when I run googlefeeder.php I get the following message. I've tried disabling my firewall but it hasn't helped. Can anyone point me in the right direction please...?

     

    Warning: ftp_connect() has been disabled for security reasons in /home/tooltrol/public_html/admin/googlefeeder.php on line 376

    FTP open connection failed to uploads.google.com


  8. A few years ago I administered a couple of OSC sites and used Easy Populate on each of them. It really has to be the most useful contribution ever submitted - thanks very much indeed.

     

    I am in the process of putting a new site together and have just installed EP, paying very close attention to the configuration instructions. I'm satisfied that everything is where it should be and that folder permissions are correct, but whenever I attempt to use EP from the admin panel, the following is reported:-

     

    CGI Error

    The specified CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete set of HTTP headers.

     

    Can anybody shed any light on what might be causing this...?


  9. Hi Joe

     

    I've just installed this contribution and met the same problem as you. I wondered if you've been able to find a solution...?

     

    Neil

     

    Well that sucks a lot.

     

    Let's not get more people banned though.

     

    In an attempt to stay OT.

     

    Misa, I see SEOed URLs but with the session ID behind them. Your logs should be able to tell whether I'm one of few or whether you left them on for all to see.

     

    I just upgraded frmo 1.3 to 2.1 following the UPGRADE instruction inc the 1.4 notes. All is fine but the product links. Manufacturer and category links are great. The product links look like this though:

     

    domain.com/ripple-mattress-topper-p-34.html?cPath=21_22_25

     

    Strangely it's just the links to product_info. I did hack products_info myself but I can;t see how that would affect this. It just does some str_replaces before eoching the product_description.

     

    .htaccess is fine as well.

     

    Anyone perhaps a clue as to why this might be happening?

     

    PS yes I cleared the cache a couple of times too. And judging by the post before me, I'm not the only one...


  10. Thank you. My products would only have one option with maybe two or three values to select, so I have removed the unused fields from the spreadsheet prior to uploading. As I say, the attributes that I do use are arriving safely and appearing in the attributes table. The product also arrives in the product table. Is there a particular field which serves to tie the two together which I've overlooked or should it happen anyway because they appear in the same record?


  11. I'm using the current version of EP with the fantastic Attributes facility! However, I am finding that although the upload is successful, the product is created, the attributes table is updated / created, the product fails to offer the options detailed in the attributes table. It is as though the attributes are not being tied to the product. Any thoughts...? I am down to my last three extractable hairs!!
