Hello,

 

So I have coped the index_ads.php file to the ../inc./modules directory, inserted the code in index.php including a new table with class ="main". I see the area where the banners should be, but alas no banners.

 

Any ideas.... ?

 

Thanx..

If anyone wants to see the rotating banner manager in place, feel free to visit it in action HERE:

Just take a look at the ads in the right column! If there is anything I can do to help, please let me know. This is a very effective contribution.

Thanks for your link. I do have a question for you, how did you get the category mens to appear like that with all the sub directories popping up? Is it some sort of DHTML menu contribution or something?

Just installed it. Looks good. Have it putting the banners right after my main text and before the New Products For... block.

 

However, it seems to have introduced a few extra lines of space between the banners (have only one row of two short banners) and the New Products box. Looks bad.

 

Not being a real code warrior, can anyone tell me where to look to get rid of this extra space/lines? Would like the banners to be tight up to the New Products For... box.

open the file catalog/includes/modules/index_ads.php in your editor.

 

Find the line that looks like (around line 46):

</tr><tr><td height="10"> </td></tr>

change it to:

</tr>

 

Also, find this (around line 53):

<tr>

<td><?php echo tep_draw_separator('pixel_trans.gif', '100%', '10'); ?></td>

</tr>

 

And remove it.

 

If this doesn't do what you want it to, you will have to change where you inserted index_ads.php into index.php.

This is a nice function.

 

Will it be improved in the future so it also count the clicks?

This function could easily be added to this contribution. However, due to the db intensiveness of the queries, I decided that the information was not needed.

I have a problem with this contribution. I have tried and tried and tried. I think I enclose the code in the wrong place in the page. Can anyone help me out?

You just put it in the catalog root index.php file where you want the display to occur. (or you could use it in product_info.php, etc.)

 

If you go near the bottom of the file, the section that displays for the storefront is at the bottom.

 

Play with positioning by using something simple like this first...

 

<?php echo '<BR><B>put indexads here</B></BR>'; ?>

 

then when you find the spot... replace that with the index ads code...

 

At least that is what I did to make it easier to know if I had my code in the wrong spot.

The echo statement doesn't rely on another php file working right... so then I knew if it was my placement or if it was the contribution that needed tweaking.

 

Hope that helps you.

I am a little confused on the naming convention in banner management.

 

Do I name the banner title "indexad1" and the group name "position 1"

If that is correct then I must be doing something else wrong. I am pretty sure I have the coding in the right spot. I even altered it slightly when it didnt work at first to have a place in the filenames.php file. (I am not entirely new to coding, but its been a while since I've used osc.)

 

I just found this contrib and it would be perfect for what I need, so I hope someone can help.

 

I added it after this:

<tr>
		<td class="main"><?php echo TEXT_MAIN; ?></td>
	  </tr>

 

I told it to add this (slightly modified from index ad instructions because indexad instructions didnt work for me either)

 

<tr>
	<td><?php echo tep_draw_separator('pixel_trans.gif', '100%', '10'); ?></td>
	  </tr>
	  <tr>
		<td><?php include(DIR_WS_MODULES . FILENAME_INDEX_ADS); ?></td>
	  </tr>

 

then under filenames.php I added the following:

 

define('FILENAME_INDEX_ADS', 'index_ads.php');

 

 

After this I went into banner management I just added any image I had on my pc, linked it to anywhere on my site, using just the path. banner title 'indexad1' and group name 'position 1' I also tried '1' and 'position1'

 

So I think I am doing something wrong since neither of those seem to work. Same results if I follow index_ads help file to the tee.

I am a little confused on the naming convention in banner management.

 

Do I name the banner title "indexad1" and the group name "position 1"

 

You need to name the banner group "indexad1", "indexad2", etc. The title can be anything you want, and it would make sense to use a title that relates to the link being used for search engine reasons.

I was thinking of reduce the quieris for this contrib. If you dont need to show how many times your banners has be shown, this could be removed. Any thoughts of this?

I took a look at it, and all you have to do is uncommet one line

Find:

//There is no redirect function to count clicks, but count displays
tep_update_banner_display_count($banner['banners_id']);

around line 28

 

And replace with:

//There is no redirect function to count clicks, but count displays
// Uncomment line below to optimize queries - by redrum
// tep_update_banner_display_count($banner['banners_id']);

 

This should save you two queries for each banner you show.

Please report any problems.

Ok i fixed this one too with a small alteration... in

 

modules/index_ads.php change to this:

//Put the banner string in the array position

$info_box_contents[$row][$col] = '<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, 'products_id=' . $banner['banners_url']) . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $banner['banners_image'], $banner['banners_title']) . '</a>';

 

..............................

basically what i did was refer to products_id instead of banner url...

 

so in the admin/banner manager, instead of putting the url, just insert the product id... i feel this is much better..

After I saw your upload in the contrib I checked in here. And I tride to simulate your problem you posted but I couldnt make it happened. I used FF and disabled cookies but the items stayed in the cart after clicking on the banners.

What browser and what settings did you used when the items in the cart was lost?

 

When I compare your fix whit the original banner manager in OSC your solution looks more proper then the original from this contrib, so should I change to you fix?
