I wanted to know how I can also display the item description. It looks liks the db is queried for it, but it doesnt seem to show. Below is the code for the featured items page. Thanks in advance

I installed this yesterday and have been up most of the night fighting with it as well. I'm not sure that the file you refer to does anything. I've found through tracing the code that the featured.php file in includes/modules is the file that builds the infoBox content array and populates the box itself. I wrote a function to get the description, but cannot seem to get the description to 'stick' to the array when passed to the new instantiation of the infoBox class. Maybe we can work out a solution between us. If this contrib is like the other two I've used and had to 'tweak', the author may or may not ever see a post (usually the ones who are willing to improve upon the contrib offer support here). I'll be more than happy to tell you what I've learned if you're still having a problem with this.

John,

Thanks for getting in touch with me. I was dissatisfied with this whole contribution and ended up installing Wolfen's featured sets without many problems. There are a lot of ways to configure Wolfens contrib, more so for my purposes, but I figure it works and who knows, I might need the extra features in the long run. Since I am not too familiar with coding and since Ive gotten rid of Andrews contrib, I dunno how much help I would be. Thanks though for the reply and best of luck.

 

Sheraz

P.S u can check out wolfens featured set on my page. Right now, I have it set up to show only featured products, and no featuired categories or manufacturers.

 

 

:)
