"Dynamenu" for osCommerce

Recommended Posts

What exactly are you putting into the header of the STS Template?

 

In the STS_template im just calling the $categorybox into the top of the page (so its above the content not in the columns.

 

<?php include(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'dm_categories.php'); ?> was placed at the very end of the header.php after the last php closing tag.

I installed dynamenu earlier successful, however now do I get an error message regarding the ereg_replace function. I found that this function has been DEPRECATED as of PHP 5.3.0 and REMOVED as of PHP 6.0.0. Relying on this feature is highly discouraged. Is it a solution to use the preg_replace function? How does one apply it and upgrade the code? I think this question might be of interest for others to. Help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

 

Here is the error message I get:

 

Deprecated: Function ereg_replace() is deprecated in \catalog\includes\functions\dynamenu\lib\layersmenu-common.inc.php on line 487 (and 793)

Take it out of the template and put it at the end of catalog/includes/application_bottom.php

(I've never gotten it to work right from the template or footer.php files)

 

I had to move the code that calls application_bottom.php above the closing </body></html> tags in the php files in the root folder so that the footer code is echoed before those tags.

 

I have it in my STS template as described in the Dynamenu installation for STS.

Interesting - the error shows you are trying to call the tep_make_cat_dmlist twice in your includes/boxes/dm_categories.php file. Have you used a file comparison tool (such as Winmerge) to compare your dm_categories.php file with the file that you downloaded in the contribution?

 

What is on the two lines referenced in the error? (lines 210 and 245 of your dm_categories.php file) ?

Well, at a glance that looks correct to me. I'd still use a file comparison tool on it just to be sure.

 

In your sts_user_code.php file did you setup the dynamenu call like this:

$sts->start_capture();
require(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'dm_categories.php');
$sts->stop_capture('dmbox', 'box');

 

Do you maybe have more than one call to the file? (maybe you have it listed twice in includes/column_left.php for example?)

 

// Create the root category list
function tep_make_cat_dmlist($rootcatid = 0, $maxlevel = 0){

   global $cPath_array, $show_full_tree, $languages_id;

   global $idname_for_menu, $cPath_array, $show_full_tree, $languages_id;

   // Modify category query if not fetching all categories (limit to root cats and selected subcat tree)
	if (!$show_full_tree) {
       $parent_query	= 'AND (c.parent_id = "0"';	

			if (isset($cPath_array)) {

			    $cPath_array_temp = $cPath_array;

			    foreach($cPath_array_temp AS $key => $value) {
					    $parent_query	.= ' OR c.parent_id = "'.$value.'"';
					}

					unset($cPath_array_temp);
			}	

       $parent_query .= ')';				
	} else {
       $parent_query	= '';	
	}		

	$result = tep_db_query('select c.categories_id, cd.categories_name, c.parent_id from ' . TABLE_CATEGORIES . ' c, ' . TABLE_CATEGORIES_DESCRIPTION . ' cd where c.categories_id = cd.categories_id and cd.language_id="' . (int)$languages_id .'" '.$parent_query.'order by sort_order, cd.categories_name');

	while ($row = tep_db_fetch_array($result)) {				
       $table[$row['parent_id']][$row['categories_id']] = $row['categories_name'];
   }

   $output .= tep_make_cat_dmbranch($rootcatid, $table, 0, $maxlevel);

   return $output;
}

Is there a possibility to add Home to the begin of Dynamenu?

 

And maybe Contact at the end?

 

Hoping for a good quick respons.

 

Somebody? Hardcoded or with a update (addon)? Also good?

This has been covered in a few places in this forum. Do a google search on this forum for this string: $mid->setMenuStructureString($categories_string)

 

ie..type into google search box the following: site:forums.oscommerce.com Dynamenu +$mid->setMenuStructureString($categories_string)

I would love to, but I have not had to deal with this issue yet. Did you try posting the lines of code that need changing to the other forum post regarding this specific issue?

 

Hello Tracy, thanks for your reply. I am aware of the post, but couldnt solve the problem with it. However if you could deliver a solution it would be appreciated.

Best regards, Adrian

Where in: includes\boxes\dm_categories.php add > $mid->setMenuStructureString(".|Home|index.php|Home|||\n".$categories_string); ?

 

Where to add it so it becomes before the categories. Sorry for my question couldn't find this?

 

I added it here:

 

// Generate menus
$mid->setMenuStructureString(".|Home|index.php|Home|||\n".$categories_string);
$mid->setMenuStructureString($categories_string);
$mid->parseStructureForMenu('catmenu');

 

But my menu is still the same nothing happend?

This is the instructions I have for putting it before the menu:

 

$mid->setMenuStructureString(".|Home|index.php|Home|||\n".$categories_string);

 

For after the menu I have this:

 

$mid->setMenuStructureString($categories_string."\n.|Home|index.php|Home|||");

 

Where in: includes\boxes\dm_categories.php add > $mid->setMenuStructureString(".|Home|index.php|Home|||\n".$categories_string); ?

 

Where to add it so it becomes before the categories. Sorry for my question couldn't find this?

 

I added it here:

 

// Generate menus
$mid->setMenuStructureString(".|Home|index.php|Home|||\n".$categories_string);
$mid->setMenuStructureString($categories_string);
$mid->parseStructureForMenu('catmenu');

 

But my menu is still the same nothing happend?

PS - Part of the reason you may have seen nothing happen is that instead of modifying your existing $mid->setMenuStructureString you added another one - you only need one of these so comment the extra one out by putting // in front of it.

I installed and am having 3 problems and really hoping someone can help on both.

 

visit https://www.paintballwarehouseny.com/airsoft-c-148.html and you can see all of the problems (I hope)

 

1. if you hover over Clothing and apparel in the menu you will see that hover goes under the image of the item to the left. How can I get the menu to be on top of anything in the products listing? (I also have Enhanced product listing installed and an having hover over problems with that too where you will see that the hovers of the product images also appear under the original in firefox, but this hover over problem with the menu is in Firefox and IE)

 

2. hover over Guns upgrade and Accessories and you will see the categories box resize a bit larger? any solution to this?

 

3. If you select a category, the active category highlights is a gray color, this is true in the sub categories, even though the stylesheet is a color as shown below

 

.vertitem a:active { /* Font style & color, background menu color of main menu item when clicked */

color: #ffffff;

background-color: #021379;

text-decoration: none;

font-weight: bold;

}

and

 

.vertsubitem a:active { /* Font style & color, background submenu color of submenu item when clicked */

color: #ffff00;

background-color: #666666;

text-decoration: none;

}

 

 

Here's hopeing for a solution!

Found the answer to #1 for those who may need it the solution is to change the stylesheet and add a z-index as follows:

 

.vertsubmenu { /* Behaviour of sub-menu - leave as is for proper operation of submenus */

position: absolute;

left: 0;

top: 0;

visibility: hidden;

z-index:999;

 

Anyone have any input on #2 and #3 - for #2 I could resize the box and will probably do so to get rid of this bug but an actual solution would be much better. And and regards #3 this is really a problem - I have actually searched the site for the gray color (hex numbers) and there is nothing I can find. I can't figure out where the style is that is affecting this (I have changed the new styles added in the contribution)

 

Please

 

Thanks

Sue
