"Dynamenu" for osCommerce

Recommended Posts

This isn't a dynamenu thing but an osC thing. There is a contribution for it here:

http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/5907

 

Please advice.

How i can hide categories with no product added?

Not the issue when something is out of stock but when no product is in category

 

i use tree type menu.

I don't know how to do this in dynamenu, but the "Category Tabs with Subs" contribution lets you have multiple rows for the categories, and you could also try using the Suckerfish Menu css type menu setup for your categories.

 

Hi,

 

Im trying to get Dynamenu to output the Horizontal Drop-down root catagories into two rows is this possible?

 

please see http://www.dev.countybatteryservices.co.uk/

Hi..

I have got a strange problem here after installing Dynamenu. I'm using STS.

The menu is showing up ok and almost all menuchoices are working, but NOT those containing Norwegian chars:

I have in Norwegian: "Skotøy" (In english this is "Footwear")

I can not get the link for this menuchoice to work since it is showing up like this:

http://www.emti.no/catalog/skotøy-c-38.html

and it should show:

http://www.emti.no/catalog/skotøy-c-38.html

(I hope the diff shows up in this post)

 

This link is showing right and working ok when not using Dynamenu.

 

Could someone please help me with this?

Just a bump to see if anyone has any ideas on this one ;)

 

I've hit a challenge I'm not sure I can figure out - LOL

 

I helped with creating the "Product in Dynamenu" contribution add-on - but I can't seem to find how to setup the "split menu" type feature in the products listing. It is a sub menu - but it doesn't seem to work to just split the sub menus, I think I need to change something in the addition of the products as sub menus. Any thoughts on how to do this?

Yes - just change the stylesheet info to what you want. The look is set through the CSS.

 

Hi. Nice contribution!

Is it possible to make own style for root categories?

Oh, now I see that there's special css style class for subitems of Horizontal Drop-Down Menu and Vertical Fly-Out Menu. But I'm using Tree Menu and there's no style class for subitems in that type :(


Sorry for my english...

I've never used tree menu, and there doesn't seem to be a template for tree menu either. You might have to find where the script is that is creating the look of the tree menu and see if you can add a <span class="myclass"> </span> bit around the subitem script and then create that class in your stylesheet.

What is the proper code to add, and where if wanting to center the menu bar? I read already that you can add a center alignment value earlier in this thread but nobody specified where and how. I'm very new to php and need the help, thanks!

Are you using a template contribution? Are you showing the menu as a div or in a table?

No I'm not using STS or BTS, no templates. What I have done is replaced the categories box in my column_right.php with this contribs box so that it appears on the right side. It can be seen at http://goldmonger.net

 

The code in my column_right.php is

If you are looking to center the entire dynamenu table you can try going into includes/boxes/dm_categories.php and changing this area:

 

// Initialize HTML and info_box class if displaying inside a box
if ($show_dmcats_as_box) {
   echo '<tr><td>';
   $info_box_contents = array();
   $info_box_contents[] = array('text' => BOX_HEADING_CATEGORIES);
   new CategoriesBoxHeading($info_box_contents, true, false);					
}

 

You can add your align="center" or valign="center" to the <td> to center the entire dynamenu table within the table cell it is being put into.

Ok - I am still having some problems trying to split the products in the menu. I think it has to do with how or where the products are being counted - but I'm not positive. Here is what I have for my includes/boxes/dm_categories.php - notice the script towards the bottom of the page to split products (tried to copy the split subcats script but something isn't working right).

 

<?php
/*
 $Id: dm_categories.php,v 1.00 2006/05/07 01:13:58 nate_02631 Exp $

 Ties the store category menu into the PHP Layers Menu library, allowing display
of categories as DTHML drop-down or fly-out menus, collapsable tree-style menus
or horizontal/vertical indented plain menus.

Any ideas on how to properly count the $products_in_category for this to work? I don't think it really should be within the 'foreach ($products_in_category_array as $array_key => $products_in_category) {' statement (at least in other spots it seems to follow after the foreach statement) but I don't know where else to count this at.

 

The '$_products_in_category_array = $pic->getProductsInCategory($key);' bit is referencing a page located at includes/classes/ProductsInCategory.php Towards the bottom of this page the counting has been done - but I don't know how to call that count into the dm_categories.php page - the script where the count has been done looks like this:

 

        function getProductsInCategory($categories_id) {
           if (isset($this->pic_data[$categories_id])){
               foreach ($this->pic_data[$categories_id] as $key => $_product_data) {
                   $product_data[] = $_product_data;
                   } // end foreach
                        return $product_data;
					 $pic_count = count($product_data);
               }else{
       return false;
                          }

       } // end function getProductsInCategory($categories_id)

 

Is there an easy way to get the $pic_count into dm_categories.php for use in the divide function ?

If you are looking to center the entire dynamenu table you can try going into includes/boxes/dm_categories.php and changing this area:

 

// Initialize HTML and info_box class if displaying inside a box
if ($show_dmcats_as_box) {
   echo '<tr><td>';

You can add your align="center" or valign="center" to the <td> to center the entire dynamenu table within the table cell it is being put into.

 

 

I added the code like this but it didn't center my table.

 

echo '<td align ="center">';

 

I also tried echo '<tr><td align="center">'; and this didn't work. I'm not sure if it's because it's the wrong code syntax or not.

If adding the alignment to includes/boxes/dm_categories.php doesn't work, then it's being set through the stylesheet. What is your CSS for the main menubar?

Well in my stylesheet I don't have anything to tell the category box what position to be in. I only have the code for the horizontal menubar that I pasted from the install directions. There's nothing in the column_right.php about positioning either. Could it be elsewhere?

During the install instructions it has you paste the CSS into your stylesheet. You might need to go back through the instructions and find that step ;)

I have a quick question...

How can I put an image to the left of Dynamenu?

 

I've tried pasting

"<img

align="top" src="images/addons/dmbackright.png" width="8" height="32" border="0"

alt="Menu" />

"

All over the place but I think I'm missing something.

 

I Can get it on the right but no luck sofar with left..

Below is an image, RED where I'd like to put it, Orange what I have succeeded in sofar:

I'd try just adding the img in the template (includes/functions/dynamenu/templates) horizontal_menu not horiz_sub_menu. Of course, in the template it mentions the icon - not sure how to set an icon, but you could try saving this file as a backup first, and then changing the "icon" bits to your dmbackright.png info and saving that as the template to give it a try (that way you still have the original backup up).

Hmm. I just upgraded from MS2 to RC2a. It worked fine at first then I refreshed the page after removing/adding new products and this happened:

 

Fatal error: Call to a member function add_current_page() on a non-object in /home/goldmo5/public_html/buy/includes/application_top.php on line 340

 

Line 340 is this

  $navigation->add_current_page();

 

I'm using the tree menu. Any ideas?

Hello! Can anyone tell me where in the contribution files you can find the logic that actually loops and builds the <HTML> code (from .ihtml file) for the number of store categories that make up the root of the menus? I know that the actual write of the menu is on lines 200-210 of dm_categories.php file:

 

// Output list inside a box if specified, otherwise just output unordered list
if ($show_dmcats_as_box) {
   $info_box_contents = array();
   $info_box_contents[] = array('text' => $categories_menu);
   new infoBox($info_box_contents);
	echo '<br>';	
} else {
echo $before_nobox_html;
   echo $categories_menu;
echo $after_nobox_html;
}

 

Basically I need to get into the loop logic before that actually builds the menu code like this from the .ihtml file:

 

<div id="catmenuL1" class="horizitem " onmouseover="clearLMTO();" onmouseout="setLMTO();">
 <a href="http://localhost/index.php/cPath/1" onmouseover="shutdown();" title="Girls"><img
 align="top" src="images/transparent.png" width="1" height="16" border="0"
 alt="" />Girls   </a>
</div>
<div id="catmenuL2" class="horizitem dmselected" onmouseover="clearLMTO();" onmouseout="setLMTO();">

 <a href="http://localhost/index.php/cPath/2" onmouseover="moveLayerX1('L2', 'catmenu') ; LMPopUp('L2', false);" title="Boys"><img
 align="top" src="images/transparent.png" width="1" height="16" border="0"
 alt="" />Boys <img
 src="images/down-arrow.png" width="9" height="5"
 border="0" alt=">>" />   </a>
</div>

 

If that does not make sense please let me know and thank you for any help!

Well I fixed my previous issue. Now I would like to know, how would one remove the subcategories from the dynamenu categories menu??? I installed the update to include the function for this but when I enter numbers (lots of trial and error) none of my subcats get hidden...
