Hello have installed the sets as a a new instal with the require globals off patch, have manually compared code and altered the files.

 

when trying to update some of the features via the admin panel I am getting this error

 

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: tep_cfg_select_featured() in /home/microsoft/catalog/admin/configuration.php(125) : eval()'d code on line 1

 

Is this because of globlals

 

Thanks

Look at the bottom of this file in the package /catalog/admin/includes/functions/general.php

make sure you have added it to yours.

 

  function tep_cfg_select_featured($select_array, $key_value, $key = '') {
etc...

i have another problem now.

 

i can set featured for categories and subcategories, but cannot set it for single products (don't get green in administration). What could be wrong?

See post #5 above, just don't add that code from the bottom of /catalog/admin/includes/functions/general.php

guys what i did wrong???:

looks like you ran the SQL twice. just run the upgrade SQL from: /upgrade/upgrade_ofs.sql

**caution** this will remove all items from the configuration group "99". This is not a problem, as long as you have not changed that in the original script.

you are not getting any error when you click the little 'on' light? is it submitting the page and just coming back as 'off'?

Hi surfalot,

 

thanks for this great contrib.

 

It's much easier to install compared to Wolfen.

 

Admin section works fine. But i've got a question: how can i integrate the "base price" contrib. That's pretty important for me, cause i am from germany.

 

What i tried is, to insert and modify this code from "base price" contrib

 

tep_get_products_display_price($new_products['products_id'], true))

 

to

echo '" align="center" valign="top" class="featuredProducts"><a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, 'products_id=' . $featured_products_array[$i]['id'], 'NONSSL') . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $featured_products_array[$i]['image'], $featured_products_array[$i]['name'], SMALL_IMAGE_WIDTH, SMALL_IMAGE_HEIGHT) . '</a><br>' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'pixel_trans.gif', '', '1', '5') . '<br><div align="center"><a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, 'products_id=' . $featured_products_array[$i]['id'], 'NONSSL') . '">' . $featured_products_array[$i]['name'] . '</a></div>' . OPEN_FEATURED_TABLE_HEADING_PRICE . $products_price . '' . tep_get_products_display_price($featured_products_array[$i], true) . $buy_now_link . '</td></tr></table>';

 

wherever the buy-now-button appears in featured_sbox_products.php and featured_gbox_products.php

 

But this does not work.

 

The tep_get_products_display_price($featured_products_array[$i], true) needs the corresponding ID from featuredProducts. Think, I am using a wrong one.

 

What I am also looking for, is a description how this contrib works. Because i don't know the difference between th g_box and the s_box modules.

 

Any help appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Got it!!!!

 

 

just modify the additional code for "base price" like this in the open-featured-set-modules:

 

tep_get_products_display_price($featured_products_array[$i]['id'], true)

 

so that the new open-featured-set Code looks like this:

 

 

 

echo '" align="center" valign="top" class="featuredProducts"><a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, 'products_id=' . $featured_products_array[$i]['id'], 'NONSSL') . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $featured_products_array[$i]['image'], $featured_products_array[$i]['name'], SMALL_IMAGE_WIDTH, SMALL_IMAGE_HEIGHT) . '</a><br>' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'pixel_trans.gif', '', '1', '5') . '<br><div align="center"><a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, 'products_id=' . $featured_products_array[$i]['id'], 'NONSSL') . '">' . $featured_products_array[$i]['name'] . '</a></div>' . OPEN_FEATURED_TABLE_HEADING_PRICE . $products_price . '' . tep_get_products_display_price($featured_products_array[$i], true) . $buy_now_link . '</td></tr></table>';

 

I did this until now in wherever the buy-now-button appears in featured_sbox_products.php and featured_gbox_products.php. There are several occurances, where you have to add this cade-snippet.

 

It works fine with my heavily modified shop (header tags 2.5.5, seo url 2.1c and lots more)

 

what i am still looking for is, why are the g_boxes and s_boxes???

 

 

Good luck to all

Thanks for working that out, I'll see about adding it to the next version as an option.

 

gbox files display items grouped together in one box. sbox files display items in their own individual boxes (the original way Wolfens did it)

yes i did that ok. don't know where went wrong :(

 

Make sure you made the change to the SQL queries on lines 1046 & 1050 of /catalog/admin/categories.php, this should have been added to each of the 2 queries: ", p.products_featured, p.products_featured_until"

 

double check that these fields made it into your products table:

 

products_featured_until - date

products_featured - tinyint(1)

 

also double check that lines 731-779 of the file /catalog/admin/includes/functions/general.php made it into your production file.

The only think I can say at this point is to backup your categories.php and replace it with the one in the package, then test. If it works then, keep looking. ;)

 

i use graphic infobox header and i m not sure where to apply them. i already changed the shadow image, but have to do some code to get header box image look different.

 

the headings for the infoboxes are generated at the top of each of the group-boxed (gbox) module files in /catalog/includes/modules/... this example is from the category featured set featured_gbox_categories.php

 

  if ((FEATURED_CATEGORIES_SET_STYLE == '5') || (FEATURED_CATEGORIES_SET_STYLE == '6')) {
$info_box_heading = array();
$info_box_heading[] = array('text' => OPEN_FEATURED_BOX_CATEGORY_HEADING);

new infoBoxHeading($info_box_heading,true,true);
 }

 

the headings use the standard class style that is used in the infoBoxHeading class from the /catalog/includes/classes/boxes.php file. (class="infoBoxHeading")

if you are talking about the Category Features, you are right about that. one more bug spilled over from the original project. The Product and Manufacturer with Product does handle this correctly.

 

here's your fix, look in /catalog/includes/modules/featured_sets.php

 

search for

where c.categories_featured = '1'

(3 places) replace with:

where p.products_status = '1' and c.categories_featured = '1'

 

Thanks for reporting that! :thumbsup:

Remember this? I said to remove the one added by this contrib to fix it the error. I'll bet this is your problem with the products features not turning on.

 

Search for the

function tep_set_featured_status

function. And replace the whole function with the one that is in this package, at the bottom of /catalog/admin/includes/functions/general.php

with original categoriese.php it works. when i compare my categories.php and original in contrib i can't find the difference. it s truth that i have instaled about 400 additional lines in my code, but can't find why it won't work.

 

i think that uploading my categories.php is a little bit insane - about 100k.

 

what to do now. please help because now i know it works :)

 

thanks for other help, i managed to work everything ok.

 

best regards,

Miha
