[contribution] Star Product

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

Nice contrib, I agree.

I like to know how I can change the length of the description text.

I find the amount of text to much (to long), so where can I change it for this contribution?

 

Thanks

 

Rich

 

you can change text lenght by aditing sql command. if you have already run sql, you can modify lenght from star_product table

for mysql 5.x compability you must modify /catalog/includes/modeules/star_product.php sql command as follows;

 

$star_products_query = tep_db_query("select substring(pd.products_description, 1, 700)
		  as products_description,
			 p.products_id,
			 p.products_image,
			 p.manufacturers_id,
			 p.products_price,

			 IF(s.status, s.specials_new_products_price, NULL) as specials_new_products_price,
			 IF(s.status, s.specials_new_products_price, p.products_price) as final_price, p.products_tax_class_id, sp.product_id
			 from " .
			 TABLE_PRODUCTS . " p left join " . TABLE_SPECIALS . " s on p.products_id = s.products_id, " .
			 TABLE_PRODUCTS_DESCRIPTION . " pd, " .
			 TABLE_STAR_PRODUCT . " sp
			 where p.products_id = pd.products_id and p.products_status = '1' and pd.products_description != '' and p.products_id=sp.product_id and pd.language_id = '" . $languages_id . "'");

Thanks for your respond expert

I looked into the star_product table, but there is nothing to be modified. My sql is the following:

 

CREATE TABLE `star_product` (
`product_id` VARCHAR( 11 ) DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL
);
INSERT INTO `star_product` ( `product_id` )
VALUES (
'1'
);

The only thing that is listed in this table is the product_id.

 

I was thinking to add a few more fields into the star_product table, like

star_product_starting_dated

star_product_ending_dated

start_product_status

 

But due to the lag of coding time :rolleyes: ... it has to wait.... :-"

 

and as I was posting before, I wanted to limit the characters shown in the description, something like

star_product_description_length which could have been located in the configuration section...

 

But I might have overlooked something. It is maybe already somewhere in the star_product contrib. If so please point it out to me. I am a bit blind due to all the codes :lol:

 

Thanks again for the respond

Hi all..

 

I just installed this contribution.. And so far I really like it.. But of course.. With things like this.. There is always something that can go wrong..

 

The problem I am having unfortunately is that in my star product panel in admin.. Two of each product are showing up (duplicates).. Is there a way to fix this? Or is there something in specific causing this? The only thing I can think of is that I have sm, md, and Lg images contribution installed on my store.. And that maybe the extra images may be causing the duplicate product to be showing up in star product's panel.. If this be the case.. I need to know what modifications need to be done in order to fix this.. I'm not sure.. And I don't want to break the cart.. I just need someone's expert help or opinion here..

 

I thank you very much in advance for your help..

 

Christine


If it ain't broke, don't fix it! :)

Hi,

I run this contrib in 3 languages and I have no problem with it. Saying that, the contrib is running fine in multi language settings.

 

can we have a look on it, to get an idea?

In the moment I would do wild guessing and that does not help.

Someone else has an idea?

Great contrib but I need a little help solving a problem.

 

All works great but when generating the code to be integrated on my home page lots of empty table cells can be seen just after the product when you "view source".

 

Is this supposed to happen? Its causing me layout problems, all the empty table cells take up around 10px of space onscreen underneath my "Star Product" which I could do without.

 

Any help??

Minor update:

A slight addition to Expert's update. His new admin ability of turning the Star Product on or off is great however it called a configuration value that didn't exist.

 

Run this sql command on your database:

INSERT INTO `configuration` VALUES (768, 'Show Start Product', 'SHOW_STARPRODUCT', 'false', 'Show Star Product on Index Page', 1, 154, '2006-08-12 19:45:03', '2003-08-14 00:25:08', NULL, 'tep_cfg_select_option(array(''false'', ''true''),');

 

Next...to get rid of the star product box on the index page when turned off in admin:

 

Find these lines:

<tr>

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

</tr>

 

And replace with these:

<?

// STAR PRODUCT START...

if (SHOW_STARPRODUCT=="true") {

?>

<tr>

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

</tr>

 

<?

}

// STAR PRODUCT END...

?>

 

That's it...

All credit goes to the original authors...I just updated it a touch.


I only do what my Rice Krispies tell me to do!

Hi folks,

 

I'm having a problem with this contribution. It works great, except when I click on the buy now button it takes me to the shopping cart. If I then click on continue shopping, I get a ''page cannot be displayed'' error.

 

You can see it here:

Thanks in advance,

if you encounter alignment problem with tables most probably some portion of product information text couses this if it has HTML formatting. I mean lets assume product info has <table> tag at beginning, contribution cuts its whole info before </table> tag is closed. Therefore you will have extra <table> tag on general code that it causes main page alignment problem.

 

I'm working on this to strip some html tags.

 

BTW, there is a missing close </table> tag in star_product.php in modules. So correct one as follows:

 

Thanks for pointing that out! I had the same problem and knew there was an unclosed tag somewhere, but after an hour of looking at the code, I gave up. I have had this problem several times and never figured out the trick of finding where the missing tag should be filled in. Is there such a trick, or is it just a matter of counting the diffrent tags: <table<tr><td> and </table</tr></td> and so forth...

If your not going to release it is there anychance your would email it to me?

 

Many Thanks
