    [Contribution] STS v4

    Hey Bill, I have a question that you might be able to help with, I have installed osC-PrintOrder with Store Logo and have been able to get everything to work except the pop-up invoice on the customer side, instead of showing the invoice it shows my template. There was a fix for the earlier versions of STS, found here, but that does not work with the current versions. Would you have any idea how to work around this?

    Bigger Images

    I am not trying to be an ass or anything, but it helps if you read the manual that comes with osCommerce, as it is a valuable resource and it will answer your first question. As for templates, it is best to find a template for phpbb and then tweak it for osC, although you could do it the other way around. As for the best free mods, just do a search here in the contrib folder and you will find a ton of them. Going back to your first question, in Configuration -> Images you can change your values to make it as big or small as you want.

    STS - Problem with infoboxes

    Your over thinking it just a tad bit, the categories.php file is basically an html file with some php coding thrown in, so all you have to do is find the place holder that calls the images and get rid of it. But since you are using STS, might I suggest that instead of using $headertext tag just create a template for each infobox you are going to use and instead of using $headertext use the actual name of the infobox.

    Most likely you have an image in your template that is http://yoursite.com/images/imagename.jpg instead of images/imagename.jpg. If you never get the errors when STS is off it is definitely your template. I have several sites running STS with various other contributions and never had a problem except when I have to change my config files or includes/application_top.php to match my sever configuration
  5. STS is not the worst, people who use Photoshop to solely design websites is the worst. You have to remember STS was develop to help those who find understanding the fundamentals of osC design to daunting. I do not think a newbie will remain a newbie cause they are using STS, because as they develop their site they will start to learn about the core of osC, for instance and I know I am only one person, but I figured out a way to carry a users sessions and cart contents through my site, not just the store. So no matter what page they go to on my site they can see what they have in their cart, the total and able to check out. And as I add new contributions I find myself learning a little bit more about osC.
  6. STS is a very good resource, I use it on several clients sites of mines and I know of two friends who uses it as well. I feel it is a great resource cause it allows you to change themes on the fly, for instance I have a theme for each of the major holidays so when those times come I can switch easily to make the site more festive. These are not my sites but is an example of what you can do with STS. vividracing.com | mjmautohaus.com STS allows you to change basically the very feel and look of an osC site to the point that you or your customers would not even know its osC. I will agree with you on one thing Burt, STS does not allow you to get to know the core of osC, but majority of the users of osC are regular layman ppl just trying to get their wares on the internet and know nothing about php to begin with. Heck most is probably using the templating system that their hosting provider gives them for their regular site. Or they are using a WYSISYG editor, and do not know the core/basics of web designing/html. I rather have people use STS than buy those horrible mad templates from that template site that is using outdated code and just as generic osC templates. I will say this, I am designing a completely new site for one of my companies and STS has allowed me to hvae the store portion look just like the rest of my site with ease. Once I am finish with the site completely, I will comeback and post it here so you can see what it looks like.

    [Contribution] STS v4

    I was thinking about adding the Google Analytics Module, until I found this on Google Analytics site. In theory this should work with osCommerce too if I add the above code into my STS Templates, does anybody see why it would not? Or should I just stick with the module here on osCommerce?

    Google Analytics module

    Not to take away from the great work that was put into the Contrib, but wouldn't it be easier and work just as well to use Googles methods for integration of Google Analytics into thrid-party shopping carts found here? As it uses the new tracking code used by Google. How do I use Google Analytics to track a 3rd-party shopping cart?

    Featured Product Support v1.5.4

    I have tried that before, and it displays it in duplicate, I figured it might have been a conflict between the two, but I am not sure. I'll try it again later on, after I am finishing adding STS

    Featured Product Support v1.5.4

    Is there a way to have "Featured Products" displayed on the main page without getting rid of "New Products of the Month?"

    [contribution] Simple Template System (sts)

    If you know basic html, just create a simple link to each file using absolute urls and you will be golden. You are not confined to php and STS, once you create a STS template it is basically like creating a regular web page with the few exceptions where you need osC to produce content. Most links, images and overall design of the of the template can be done with simple html.

    [Contribution] STS v4

    Hi Bill, I have two quick questions for you, just to make sure I am doing things properly. 1) If I set any files for use for templates "Files for normal template" and I add myfile.php should I also add a copy of that file in the includes/modules/sts_inc/ folder correct? 2) If I make any changes to the general.php file located in includes/functions/ folder should I also make the same changes in the general.php file located in includes/modules/sts_inc/?

    Sts Mega Power Pack

    It sounds like you missed some code somewhere best thing to do is retrace your steps and go throught it again. Also make sure you follow the link in bkellum signature to install HTC with STS as it is the way to go.

    STS - centered and fixed width

    Yes make the templates that way and your good to go. The site will look however you would want it, by creating template files or just 1 template file for the whole site. It helps to know html or have an html editor, preferably a WYSIWYG one.

    Make sure that in Admin/STS that you put oscthumb.php as a file required for use in the templates.

    Never mind, after taking a break from it, I realized it was sitting right there smack dab in my face.

    [Contribution] oscThumb

    Quick question kinda noobish, in the manual edits, the intructions for "catalog/includes/functions/html_output.php" read: FIND function tep_image and RENAME IT function tep_image_original AFTER this function, ADD: // START oscThumb // If you want to call the original function, you can call tep_image_original or call this one with $original=true. function tep_image($src, $alt = '', $width = '', $height = '', $params = '', $original = false, $thumbnail_type = 0) { global $oscthumb; // We are asked to return the result of the original function if ($original || $oscthumb->enabled==false) { return tep_image_original ($src, $alt, $width, $height, $params); } $oscthumb->set_type ($src, $width, $height, $thumbnail_type); // Detect the type of image we are currently processing if ($oscthumb->set_size ($src, $width, $height)==false) return false; // Choose the displayed width and height of the image, and if display something $image = $oscthumb->process($src); // Returns the beginning of the image tag, like <img src="oscthumb.php?src=... or <img src="images/logo.gif" // Add remaining image parameters if they exist if ($width) { $image .= ' w="' . tep_output_string($width) . '"'; } if ($height) { $image .= ' h="' . tep_output_string($height) . '"'; } if (tep_not_null($params)) $image .= ' ' . $params; $image .= ' border="0" alt="' . tep_output_string($alt) . '"'; if (tep_not_null($alt)) { $image .= ' title="' . tep_output_string($alt) . '"'; } $image .= '>'; return $image; } // END oscThumb My first question is am I suppose to change every instance of tep_image to tep_image_original in the file? Second Question it says after tep_image add the code above after, but the placement in your modified files is different. Where should I put this? I am editing it maunually becasue the section of code where the above is located in your modified files is slightly modified.

    New STS tag

    I do not have an answer for you, but you will get a better chance of getting all your STS questions answered, if you post it in the Official STS 4 thread.

    [Contribution] STS v4

    This has been driving me crazy, I know it has to be something easy cause if it wasn't I would have figured it out by now. On the login.php page I want to have the the two different boxes "New Customer" "Returning Customer" on top of one another instead of side by side like how it is by default in osC. I have checked the User Manual but could not find any tags for those two boxes. without actually editing the login.php file can I achieve this when creating a login.php.html file?

    [Contribution] STS v4

    It could be a server issue, but it is not due to any contributions or anything else. This has been an on going topic when osC RC1 was first release and the edit I mentioned above was the solution that was provided by the community as well as it seems that it that this is still an ongoing thing with osC RC 2. I am just providing this information to help those who are beating their head at why their secure pages are coming up unsecure.

    ugly text error

    You should not give up so fast. the problems you was having was due to your database, you was missing some tables and entries in your database Also it helps if you post in the correct section as you posted in the templates and images when you should have posted in Installation and Configuration
