Product Description 1.3

Recommended Posts

Ignore this, there is no quick way... Backed up files, and then went through steps of instal in reverse!!

 

Hi

 

I currently have Product Listing in Columns installed but I would like to try this layout.

 

Has any one moved from Product Listing in Columns to Product Description, I have been looking at my current files but cannot figure out what I need to do to remove Product Description.

 

Thanks for info

Not sure whats happening, as I cannot get the same layout as per the image in the contrib. I still have a regular table layout.

 

Have I missed a step, or not configuered something in admin.

 

Thanks for advice.

Quick note for version 1.5

 

function tep_flatten_product_description($description, $link)
{
$description = ereg_replace('<[^>]*>', '', $description);
if (strlen($description) > PRODUCT_LIST_DESCRIPTION_MAX_LENGTH){

$description = substr($description, 0, PRODUCT_LIST_DESCRIPTION_MAX_LENGTH);
$description .= "...".$link;
}else {
$description .= $link;
}
return $description;
}

 

Works quite well, but the PRODUCT_LIST_DESCRIPTION_MAX_LENGTH is not set to any value if you follow the base instructions. Being that I'm still a PHP newbie, I just switched PRODUCT_LIST_DESCRIPTION_MAX_LENGTH to a number that looked good on the site I'm devloping and everything worked out well.

 

If you don't make this change, you won't get any description at all.

That's because you did not run the sql file that came with the contribution. And it is present in the installation instructions

 

####[ DATABASE ]################################################################

 

load the supplied file 'product_description.sql' into your mySQL database,

either from the command line or via phpMyAdmin.

Ive tried both contributions in this thread. Got it working in new_products

but it doesnt show in product_listing.php or advanced_search_results.php

 

I also have the SPPC contibution installed. Im wondering if this is causing my description not to show.

Anyone else have issues with these two contribs together???

Im hoping enigma1 might still be around and give me a shove in the right direction.

Any help would be most appreciated.

 

I will post my product_listing.php if needed.

 

Thanks

Ok the code seems ok. Now check the settings on your osc admin end. There is a setting to enable the short description and another that specifies the length. If you already checked those then comment out this line to see if the description shows.

 

		if (PRODUCT_LIST_DESCRIPTION && $listing['products_description'] && PRODUCT_LIST_DESCRIPTION_MAX_LENGTH)

 

because it maybe an error somewhere else.

When I comment out that line I get

 

Product name

more>>>>>

 

but the more is linked to "product not found"

 

Ive checked the admin and I see the length in Maximium Values

and Product Description in Product Listing section.....looks ok

ok got it. change this code:

 

		if (PRODUCT_LIST_DESCRIPTION && $listing['products_description'] && PRODUCT_LIST_DESCRIPTION_MAX_LENGTH)
		$lc_text .= '<br><table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"><tr><td class="productDesc">' . tep_flatten_product_description($listing['products_description'],  ' <a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, 'products_id=' . $listing['products_id']) . '">' . TEXT_MORE . '</a>') . '</td></tr></table>';

 

 

to this:

		if (PRODUCT_LIST_DESCRIPTION && $listing[$x]['products_description'] && PRODUCT_LIST_DESCRIPTION_MAX_LENGTH)
		$lc_text .= '<br><table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"><tr><td class="productDesc">' . tep_flatten_product_description($listing[$x]['products_description'],  ' <a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, 'products_id=' . $listing[$x]['products_id']) . '">' . TEXT_MORE . '</a>') . '</td></tr></table>';

 

This is specific to your store however and the SPPC contribution.

Hi everyone

 

I installed the contribution and it's working great just one little problem with the French caracters:

 

the special caracter just before the "... more info>>>" was showing "à" instead of an "?" and this for all the special caracters.

 

I just change this instruction :

 

$description .= "...".$link;

$description .= " ...".$link;

 

Just adding a space in front of the 3 dots solve this problem. Is someone maintaining this contribution or should I update the version.

Hi and thanks for this great contribution.

 

I am trying to add short_description to product_info page with the code mentioned in the begining of this thread:

<?php echo stripslashes($product_info['short_desc']); ?>

but nothing comes up.

I can see the short_desc in database, i just need the code to call it and display in product_info.php

 

Thanks.

I have installed Product Description V1.5 and its works fine, im using the oscommerce with SPPC. Now i want to show the description in the shopping_cart.php too

 

I have made the necessary changes in classes\shopping_cart.php as follows:

 

---------------------------------------

$products_query = tep_db_query("select p.products_id, pd.products_name, p.products_model, pd.products_description, p.products_image, p.products_price, p.products_weight, p.products_tax_class_id from " . TABLE_PRODUCTS . " p, " . TABLE_PRODUCTS_DESCRIPTION . " pd where p.products_id = '" . (int)$products_id . "' and pd.products_id = p.products_id and pd.language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "'");

 

and here

 

'image' => $products['products_image'],

'description' => $products_description['products_description'],

'price' => $products_price,

'quantity' => $this->contents[$products_id]['qty'],

 

--------------------------------------------

 

Now in catalog/shopping_cart.php i have made the following changes:

 

' <td class="productListing-data" valign="top"><a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, 'products_id=' . $products[$i]['id']) . '"><b>' . $products[$i]['name'] . '</b></a></td>' .

 

' <td class="productListing-data" valign="top">' . tep_flatten_product_description($products['description'], '<br><a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, 'products_id=' . $products[$i]['id']) . '">' . TEXT_MORE . '</a>') . '</td></tr>';

 

I thought this was enough to work but it displays only more>>>> the (' . TEXT_MORE . ') part

Can someone help me fix this..i know im so close. thanks

you have to add the short_desc in the sql query of the $product_info_query

an example would be nice :) thanks.

I just added this contribution and am getting this error when I try to look at my site:

 

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in catalog/includes/functions/general.php on line 65

 

The only thing on that line is ////

 

Plus all I did to the file was add the following just before the ?> of general.php

 

// short product description

function tep_flatten_product_description($description, $link)

{

$description = ereg_replace('<[^>]*>', '', $description);

if (strlen($description) > PRODUCT_LIST_DESCRIPTION_MAX_LENGTH){

 

$description = substr($description, 0, PRODUCT_LIST_DESCRIPTION_MAX_LENGTH);

$description .= "...".$link;

}else {

$description .= $link;

}

return $description;

}

 

 

When I delete this part my site works again. (well everything but this contr.)

 

Please help. I am fairly new at php and really have no clue why I am getting this error.

Hi,

 

Everything is as it should be, easy install, nice documentation, even a nice contrib forum!

 

But...have i made a mistake, or can you guys help me out...

 

the problem is that the contrib does exactly as i want on the search pages and products new eetc, but on the product info page the short description is not needed.

 

How do i turn this off??

 

http://www.hydrodeals.co.uk/catalog/hydrop...tives-c-38.html <<<< works well!!

 

http://www.hydrodeals.co.uk/catalog/regen-root-p-154.html <<< hopefully you can tell me wheat to do!!! Product description has "leaked" into here

 

 

Kind regards

Hi,

 

I have installed and am using Product Description 1.5.

 

It's working beautifully, even with the SPPC Contrib (which required a small amount of editing).

 

 

However I cannot get the Short Descriptions to show up in the Latest Products on index.php

 

I've managed to get the more>>> but no description.

 

I'm sure there is a solution, I've noticed a couple of posts referring to this but there's no elaboration.

 

Any ideas would be extremely appreciated :)

 

Thanks

the problem is that the contrib does exactly as i want on the search pages and products new eetc, but on the product info page the short description is not needed.

 

How do i turn this off??

http://www.hydrodeals.co.uk/catalog/regen-root-p-154.html <<< hopefully you can tell me wheat to do!!! Product description has "leaked" into here

Kind regards
