  1. Thanks that is interesting to know, but just realised there isn't a bm_products_new.php :rolleyes:
  2. Hi Jim Slightly off topic, but will this code change work to stop the New Products box from appearing on the product_info page too please? :D
  3. :lol: ok I commented out the FIRST & now I only have it on the front page thanks Don't understand what you mean next though? I know using this gallery on MS2.2 it can be shown on the front page in a module if that is what you mean? eg here See at the bottom & it changes when you refresh.
  4. :huh: The other post said the one on line 88 I think was the one showing on the front page & the one on line 265 was for the categories page. I understand that the module has now taken control of the front page one, but the first one is still there & the mod replaces the second one. Just trying to understand the workings a little & not just do. I will give it a go. :D btw the gallery I was going to try & do a module for is file based & not databased. Do you think this is still possible/harder or easier? I was going to call random images & have it like the specials/new products module on the front page. I have it on the page now, so can look at it when I find a little time & a few brain cells :lol: Thanks
  5. Hi Jim Not sure how to solve the next change I want to do? Searching the forum I see that to remove the "New Products" display from the categories pages (not the front page) I need to remove/comment the second mention of it. However this section has been removed by the Modular Front Page. Could you tell me how I can do this please? Thanks
  6. ohhhh my first bug :) sorry
  7. Cross posts. Do I still need to do this as I have changed all ' to " & it works both admin & catalog side?
  8. I have changed all the ' for a " & it shows both admin & catalog without an error message. Not sure if this is a default with the generic box, but you only seem to be able to add code to the contents once? After that you do not get the option of the code in the white input box? I'll leave it at that for the moment, until you say any different. Thanks once again.
  9. OK I have un-installed & changed all ' to \' then re-installed & added new code. It shows on the admin side but not on the catalog side. As it worked on the catalog side & shows on the admin side I'm guessing I'll have to make the colour & size adjustments but leave the ' as original. The error message doesn't seem to stop it from working, unless you have another work around java script? All it means is that I cannot edit the code. I have to un-install & re-install. Will this make any difference? I'm hoping un-installing & re-installing many times won't have an adverse affect?
  10. Thanks Jim How to I edit it though, as it won't show the code when I click on the edit button? Do I need to uninstall & re-install? Do I need to upload both or one of the files again? Also am I supposed to see the generic box css outside the twiter box? Fab contribution though. :)
  11. Me again! I think it is my code but how can I add this as it has ' Should I change them all to " ? It does say that you can copy & paste html code snippets directly in. It is showing on the catalog side by the way. <script src="http://widgets.twimg.com/j/2/widget.js"></script> <script> new TWTR.Widget({ version: 2, type: 'profile', rpp: 4, interval: 6000, width: 250, height: 300, theme: { shell: { background: '#333333', color: '#ffffff' }, tweets: { background: '#000000', color: '#ffffff', links: '#4aed05' } }, features: { scrollbar: false, loop: false, live: false, hashtags: true, timestamp: true, avatars: false, behavior: 'all' } }).render().setUser('mysite').start(); </script>
  12. Just seen this error message at the top of the boxes list [cquote]Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/mystore/public_html/catalog/xxxxx/modules.php(232) : eval()'d code on line 5 Is this from my code that I have put in? I didn't have any links (deleted index.php etc) or a box header. I cannot see any box borders either, but if it is white I wouldn't. I just see the twitter feed box in the left column. It is 250 wide & I have a grid_6 which I think is 240, so it is slightly into the middle, but it isn't pushing anything out of line? What would be the biggest you would suggest the width should be inside the generic box? Thanks
  13. Hi Jim Ok all is well...but I added the code for the twitter feed & then realised that it was too big for the column, so I went back into edit. The trouble is there is only this at the bottom English Contents Enter the contents that you want in your box in English There isn't a white box with the code in? How do I edit the code again? Thanks JUlie
  14. :lol: Good enough reason! None of mine did & realised I had already downloaded 7 zip but it doesn't automatically load when you try to open this type of file. Now I have it on my desktop & I have to click on it to then view through the manager folder. I cannot complain as I apreciate the effort you have put in to help me/us modify our own stores. ;) Just uploaded so now to install & add twitter html.
  15. Hi Jim How do I unzip it? I cannot find a programme that will do this extention? It's a .tar.gz & not a .zip? :huh: Noticing more & more like this. Is .zip going out of fashion? Ant free programmes available? Thanks Not to worry...found 7zip :)
  16. Thanks Jim I'll try that tomorrow. I will either make the box border the same colour as the background so you can't see it or look at the twitter feed code. That & not having a box header & you'll never know it was in a box! ;)
  17. Hi Jim If I wanted to add a twitter feed in the column left would I need a box & if so would your add-on work for this? I don't really want a box header or any box borders around the twitter feed as it is in it's own box already. Thanks Julie
  18. I'll change the dotDark, dotLight, pause, play & transBlack75 images for now. :) I'll get the gallery set up on a new page & then look at the specials module as you suggested with the gallery code. This will do the front end, & I'm assuming I need to copy file/s on the admin side & amend similarly for the new module too? Do you have a list of all the files needed to make up one module please? i.e. as explained in 2.2 for adding a new page Thanks for your help. Julie
  19. Thanks OK this has totally lost me! I started learning about osc & tables & now I'm learning more about 960 grid & css. Javascript looks like greek to me when I have had a peek. I may have to leave this one for a while but do I have to create the same images but change the colour of the existing controls & not through css? I'll have a go at this. Hopefully it is similar to the add a new page in 2.2? Could the featured products module be used if fixed images were used? If random ones from the whole galleries images, could the new products module be amended so it looked in there instead of the products? Probably a very naive way of thinking how it works! :-" If I managed to do this (with help probably/hopefully) I'll definately share. I think the ability to add various modules would be great for your contribution. Thanks
  20. Hi Jim I went for it & uploaded your Modular Front Page thanks & it does what it say on the tin. :thumbsup: You mentioned that the size of the banner rotator could be changed. Can you tell me where please as it isn't quite to the edge of my main column grid_18 (only have left column)Will this mean the banners need to be bigger or will it just have white space or will the size of the banner area be dependant upon the size of the banners I put into it? i.e. It would fit to the size of that group? I'm wondering if there are any different options for the sequence buttons? I like the ones like burt's which has a 1 2 3 buttons & how can I change the black to match my sites colour scheme please? I can ask this in a new thread if necessary. Also where can I change the css so I can have a border? One last thing :) Is it possible to create new modules? I will be setting up my gallery again & would love a module simlar to the products one that dispayed randon images from the gallery images. Is this possible please? If yes to any of my questions please direct me in the right direction. :D Thanks for this it works great & is easy to install. So far I haven't found any problems. :) Julie
  21. Does this work with v2.3.1 please? I'm wanting a rotator banner but not sure whether to go for this or the Modular front page contribution which has one in too. Trouble is I don't want all the modules so is this over kill? I only have one column so can I adjust the size of the display so it is across the top of effectively grid_18 710px? Is it determined by the image sizes or the css? What is the default with this? Thanks
  22. Hi Jack I think I am going to have to start again with a fresh install of 2.3.1 :( I will then do a fresh install for this new version instead of HTC. Hope it goes as well as it did before! I also have Ultimate SEO URLSs v2.1c as suggested by you to work with HTC. Is this the same version to go with your HTS on a 2.3.1? Thanks Julie
  23. Hi Jack I have osc 2.2 MS2 & Header Tags Controller v2.6.3 at the moment. Do I need to upgrade to merchant v2.3.1 before I tackle updating my Header tags? Do I just need to use this contribution without doing anything else i.e. I don't have to undo anything from the header tags controller I already have installed? I says it isn't compatible? http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/5851 Thanks
  24. Hi I can't find the answer for this (have searched) Even though "Award points for Specials" is set to false. It still does. :( Is there a code change I need? Or is this not working for all versions? I have 1.6 How do I exempt products for points? If I enable points restriction I would expect to have to state which ones,but it asks "If restriction enabled set model allowed" ? "Or set product ID allowed" "Or set category ID allowed" Could you explain please? :) I would expect to set to true & have to put in the category ID which doesn't have points. Also does this work as the special exception doesn't? Thanks :) Julie
  25. Hi Thought I'd start a new thread as it isn't a problem with the contribution SDS I have spent the last few days trying to upload .zip files to a download subfolder. But only a few have been successful. :( I use Filezilla but was suggested I try Cuteftp (trial only as not paying $50 especially if it doesn't do any more than Filezilla)too. The .zip files contain either .jpeg or .pdf files & range from 37-76MB I have done 37/47 & 52MB but it keeps timing out or being disconnected by the server. My hosts who are very helpful said there aren't any limits & it is a connection/ftp problem. Wondering if you can give me any words of wisdom about uploading large files .. best way/settings/best ftp? I have turned all applications off including disabling the McFee firewall when uploading but still no luck. This is driving me mad now & I would prefer to upload bundles in one .zip instead of group in singles if I can as they only take 1/4 of the time to download once purchased. Any suggestions would be gratefully received. :) Thanks Julie
