[Contribution] Category Descriptions MS2

Recommended Posts

I really don't know how to thank you Wendy for being so kind and helpful.

Here is my catalog/index.php.

Please take a look and let me know which part is wrong and how to modify it.

Hope I'm not burdening you.

I just installed this contribution and everythign seemed to go well until I tried to add a category description. The text I type in the WSIWYG editor is not saved to the data base. When I edit the file in the database directly what I put there shows up. When I try to edit the category description, the text I placed in the database shows up, but none of my changes are saved. It also seems to have killed the Featured Products contribution. Any ideas?

Can anyone kindly take a look at my index file above and tell me what am I missing? or can anyone kindly send me the OSC original index.php [catalog/index.php] for comparison purposes?

I had a free lancer installed OSC for me as I had no idea how to upload a .tar file on a Unix server.

As a result, I don't have the OSC clean index file. Call me stupid!

I tried to change the place where that bit of code is supposed to be inserted in (my missing) manufacturers section but I messed things up.

I spent the whole night trying to get this fixed. I used dreamweaver and I also did a "find" search but I couldn't figure it out.

I still cannot add text in the main category.

 

Any help for a noob? :(

Solved. I figured it out.

 

As I was browsing contributions, I came across one of them that includes the file I have been looking for.

http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contri...ons,1452/page,5

 

I downloaded it, compared it to mine and moved the code to the right place.

It was another night no sleep but I finally got myself the missing OSC clean index file.

 

Thank you dear friends.

Thank you Wendy for your quick reply.

 

I'm sure I put everything where it is suposed to go EXCEPT FOR the bit of code that comes under the line "// We build the manufacturers Dropdown" in catalog/index.php [#8.4 in the Readme file].

 

I couldn't find that line nor the lines below it.  So, I'm not sure if I put this bit of modified code in the right place.

 

I didn't want the manufacturer box since I only sell my own art works. So I removed it. This was the first thing I did once I uploaded OSC. I then realised that it was a foolish thing for a noob to do and that I should have commented them out instead of deleting and that I should have had a backup.  :(

 

Any clues?

I too am missing that line "// We build the manufacturers Dropdown" and I even went back to my original download version of catalog/index.php and did a find - It's not there. The readme needs instructions for this!

I found it - it was line 231- I just hadn't moved on to the next page of the readme notes to where it said "// We build the manufacturers Dropdown" may not be in your file..."

Oh dear now what have I done!

 

I've finished installing all and now I realize, being the first time I used the phpMyAdmin, I've messed it up and now have in the configuration of my store the category descriptions 3 times!!

 

Anyone know how to fix this?!

Not only do I have the configuration messed up but I don't get a place to add the descriptions. OHHHH and I was so pleased that I finally made it through all the long list of instructions. HELP ANYONE? :'( !

Not only do I have the mess mentioned in my last two posts but this contribution has changed some of my image sizes and alt tags now say 100% etc.

 

Has anyone else experienced this?

I do not see any differences in the installation directions between v1.5 and 1.9 so i am staying with 1.5

I am not seeing my descriptions or the category names, either. Also, I do not see the mention of manufacturers dropdown in index.php. I unwrapped a brand new tar.gz., nope... Has something changed in the download?

 

How did I do it before? It was easy then!

okay, here's my solution

take the function out of the functions/categories_description.php

and put it into the functions/general.php file

delete this line from categories.php;

require('includes/functions/categories_description.php');

and that took care of my problem...

Installed the ACA module.

Installed the ACA module files for categories description MS2 1.9

Edited the categories.php file

 

//==========================================================

// ACA: START CONFIGURATION OF MODULES USED FOR CATEGORIES AND PRODUCTS ADMINISTRATION

//==========================================================

// Load categories modules and tell which one is the main (original 2.2MS2)

require (DIR_WS_CLASSES.'categories.php');

$categories_modules = new categories($current_category_id);

$categories_modules-> register_module ('categories_ms2.php');

$categories_modules-> register_module ('category_description.php');

$categories_modules-> register_module ('image_upload.php');

 

 

I can use the wysiwyg within the category sub-headings, but when I save the amendments they do not show on the website.

 

Followed the aca module instructions to add,

 

$products_modules-> register_module ('category_description.php');

in categories.php

 

//==========================================================

// ACA: START CONFIGURATION OF MODULES USED FOR CATEGORIES AND PRODUCTS ADMINISTRATION

//==========================================================

// Load categories modules and tell which one is the main (original 2.2MS2)

require (DIR_WS_CLASSES.'categories.php');

$categories_modules = new categories($current_category_id);

$categories_modules-> register_module ('categories_ms2.php');

$categories_modules-> register_module ('category_description.php');

$categories_modules-> register_module ('image_upload.php');

 

require (DIR_WS_CLASSES.'products.php');

$products_modules = new products();

$products_modules-> register_module ('products_ms2.php');

$products_modules-> register_module ('html_area.php', 'products_ms2');

$products_modules-> register_module ('category_description.php');

 

 

HOWEVER, I get an error message when I go into the admin catalog section:

 

Warning: register_module(includes/modules/products/category_description.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/mysite/public_html/catalog/admin/includes/classes/products.php on line 32

 

Warning: register_module(includes/modules/products/category_description.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/mysite/public_html/catalog/admin/includes/classes/products.php on line 32

 

Warning: register_module(): Failed opening 'includes/modules/products/category_description.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/mysite/public_html/catalog/admin/includes/classes/products.php on line 32

 

Please help??? Thank you.

Hi,

I have installed the category description mod but i am having a few problems.

The category description shows if the category has a sub category in it. The category description does not show if it only has products in it.

I have been through the code a number of times but can't see any mistake i have made.

Any help would be much appreciated. Here is the catalog/index.php - i presume this would be the file that has errors in it...

I'm attempting to add this contrib on top of the Header Tags V2.4.7.

 

HTC replaced the line in 8.2 "<td class="pageHeading"><?php echo HEADING_TITLE; ?></td>" with "<td><h1><?php echo $category['category_head_title_tag']; ?></h1></td>" How do I add the following lines without breaking the header tags title?

<td class="pageHeading">
  <?php 
     if ( (ALLOW_CATEGORY_DESCRIPTIONS == 'true') && (tep_not_null($category['categories_heading_title'])) ) {
   echo $category['categories_heading_title'];
   } else {
   echo HEADING_TITLE;
   }
  ?>
 </td>

 

Another conflict is the header tags contrib adding 5 lines below "case 'PRODUCT_LIST_PRICE':"

$category_query = tep_db_query("select c.category_head_title_tag from " . TABLE_CATEGORIES . " c, " . TABLE_CATEGORIES_DESCRIPTION . " cd where c.categories_id = '" . (int)$current_category_id . "' and cd.categories_id = '" . (int)$current_category_id . "' and cd.language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "'");
   $category = tep_db_fetch_array($category_query);

while the category description needs

    // Get the category name and description
   $category_query = tep_db_query("select cd.categories_name, cd.categories_heading_title, cd.categories_description, c.categories_image from " . TABLE_CATEGORIES . " c, " . TABLE_CATEGORIES_DESCRIPTION . " cd where c.categories_id = '" . $current_category_id . "' and cd.categories_id = '" . $current_category_id . "' and cd.language_id = '" . $languages_id . "'");
   $category = tep_db_fetch_array($category_query);

 

Instruction 8.5 also conflicts as it modifies "<td class="pageHeading"><?php echo HEADING_TITLE; ?></td>" which was changed to "<td><h1><?php echo $category['category_head_title_tag']; ?></h1></td>" from the header tag contrib.

 

Unfortunately, I'm not a php wizard, so I really don't understand the changes being made, and how to work around them. Is it possible to get both contribs to work together? Has someone already done this and could post their index.php files so we can capture the differences? I know I'm not supposed to cross-post, but can I put a link to this on the header tags controller contrib discussion at http://forums.oscommerce.com/index.php?showtopic=51815? To my non-coder eye, it seems like the conflicts happen where the contribs set the page titles. Can I modify it so I can display the page headings from the HTC and still show category descriptions?

 

Thanks for any help!

Hi, I have followed all the instructions for the 1.9 version and it seemed to work because I can click edit for a topic, add a description and then preview it but when I try to update I get this error.

1054 - Unknown column 'categories_name' in 'field list'

update categories set categories_name = '', categories_heading_title = '', categories_description = '' where categories_id = '21'

[TEP STOP]

 

 

for this submission url

http://<site>/admin/categories.php?cPath=&cID=21&action=update_category

 

I do not know how oscommerce works very well so I can't find where this 1054 error is is referring to and why it hasn't worked. Googled with no joy and had no joy searching the forum.

 

Can anybody help me? I would be very grateful even if some pointers ot help me out.

 

Many Thanks,

 

TW

Hi!

 

I installed this contrib and got the next error when going to the categories:

 

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '<' in C:\apachefriends\xampp\htdocs\osc\admin\categories.php on line 451

 

The codeline it points to is normal in my eyes.... :

 

<!-- body_text //-->
? ? <td width="100%" valign="top"><table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2">
<?php

 

So line 451 starts with the <!-- body text //-->

 

Can anyone tell me where to look for the solution? :'(

I install the contributation. But when I edit the category, it don't have any thing on the center. It only have the left column, the center and the right are blank. It don't have any error message. I check the install procedure many times. So, how can I do? Thanks a lot.

Maurice, you might be missing a closing php tag above the <!-- body text //-->

one of these;

?>

I have installed the category description mod but i am having a few problems.

The category description shows if the category has a sub category in it. The category description does not show if it only has products in it. ...

 

I am experiencing the same thing. Has anyone found a solution to this yet?

I too am having trouble getting it to work with the HTC contribution. Are there any install instructions that don't involved modifying the header titles as I already have that feature?

Now this contribution is OK in my netshop! Because one step was error at that time. Maybe you have the same error. You must add the codes of category_with_WYSIWYG.insert.txt or category.insert.txt to admin/categories.php.

Try again!

I used the categoires description contribution

And followed the read me and it all works great my only niggle is I can only add text to main categories and not sub categories, does anyone have any ideas how to add text to sub categories

http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contri...ies+description

 

I just tried installing the contribution, following the readme to the letter. In the admin section I have the option as indicated to set category description to true or false. This works. But when I click on Catalog I get a parse error on line 483 (wich traces back to the included category.insert file). Can anyone tell me if there's a changed version of this file?

Thanks in advance
