"Dynamenu" for osCommerce

Recommended Posts

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.

what addons your used? choose menu type from admin version2?

i have problems hace problems installing, in the addons content 3 files:

._DynaMenu SQL.sql.txt

DynaMenu SQL.sql.txt

Choose_menu_type_admin_install.txt <------here instructions content:

 

 

Prepositions:

1) You need to have Dynamenu installed <--------- i have installed

2) You need to have "products in Dynamenu" by TracyS (21.2.2007) installed <----- i have problems with install, error the line $_products_in_category_array = $pic->getProductsInCategory($key);

 

 

1) Run the included .sql file via PhpMyAdmin <------- i have a upload DynaMenu SQL.sql.txt? rename sql delete txt? or create new table in phpadmin?

and upload the file sql no problems with sql original?

thanks for the reply!!!

I have just installed Dynamenu and am trying to get my drop down menu to look like either one of these - http://www.sweetwater.com/ or - http://www.musiciansfriend.com/ but, with limited coding capabilities not sure of what settings to change?

 

I just dont want it to drop down then fly out but, rather drop down with all links visible if that makes sense ...

 

Appreciate any replies

Danny

I've read through some of these posts and googled the problem too, but I can't find anyone explaining the same problem I'm having.

 

I'm using the tree menu, and it all works fine in Firefox and Opera, but in Chrome, IE and Safari, although everything initially displays fine, once the menu is extended, it's giving a box as if an image has failed to load. The weird thing being that there isn't meant to be an image there. I expect a bit of code tinkering would fix this, but I could really do with being pointed in the right direction.

 

Has anyone else had this problem?

 

Any ideas?

Hi,

I am using

Enable & Disable Categories (http://www.oscommerc...ntributions,326

 

) for this template.

 

seems it can't work correctly.

 

Would you please help to give your suggestion asap?

 

Thanks & Best Regards,

Sunrise99

 

$result = tep_db_query('select c.categories_id, cd.categories_name, c.parent_id from ' . TABLE_CATEGORIES . ' c, ' . TABLE_CATEGORIES_DESCRIPTION . ' cd where c.categories_status = 1 and c.categories_id = cd.categories_id and cd.language_id="' . (int)$languages_id .'" '.$parent_query.'order by sort_order, cd.categories_name');

 

this will solve your problem

I found depreciated functions for php 5.3

in includes/functions/dynamenu/lib/layersmenu-common.inc.php

2 instances of

$buffer = ereg_replace(chr(13), '', $buffer);

replace

$buffer = preg_replace('/chr(13)/', '', $buffer);

 

find

$this->tree[$cnt]['parsed_href'] = (preg_replace(' ', '', $this->tree[$cnt]['href']) == '') ? '#' : $this->prependedUrl . $this->tree[$cnt]['href'];

replace with

$this->tree[$cnt]['parsed_href'] = (preg_replace('/\ /', '', $this->tree[$cnt]['href']) == '') ? '#' : $this->prependedUrl . $this->tree[$cnt]['href'];

 

hope this helps

I have added categories_link_url to my categories_description table and would like to get data the same way as categories_name, but I can't see how this is done.

 

Hope someone in here can help :-)

 

$result = tep_db_query('select c.categories_id, cd.categories_name, cd.categories_link_url, c.parent_id from ' . TABLE_CATEGORIES . ' c, ' . TABLE_CATEGORIES_DESCRIPTION . ' cd where c.categories_id = cd.categories_id and cd.language_id="' . (int)$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'];

$link[$row['parent_id']][$row['categories_id']] = $row['categories_link_url'];

}

 

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

 

return $output;

 

}

 

// Create the branches off the category list

function tep_make_cat_dmbranch($parcat, $table, $level, $maxlevel) {

 

global $cPath_array, $menu_use_titles, $menu_icon_file, $divide_subcats, $divide_subcats_text, $pic;

 

$lvl_adjust = 1;

 

$list = $table[$parcat];

 

// Build data for menu

while(list($key,$val) = each($list)){

 

if (isset($cPath_array) && in_array($key, $cPath_array)) {

$this_expanded = '1';

$this_selected = 'dmselected';

} else {

$this_expanded = '';

$this_selected = '';

}

 

if (!$level) {

unset($GLOBALS['cPath_set']);

$GLOBALS['cPath_set'][0] = $key;

$cPath_new = 'cPath=' . $key;

} else {

$GLOBALS['cPath_set'][$level] = $key;

$cPath_new = 'cPath=' . implode("_", array_slice($GLOBALS['cPath_set'], 0, ($level+1)));

$this_subcat_count++;

}

 

if ($menu_use_titles) {

$this_title = $val;

} else {

$this_title = '';

}

if ($menu_use_links) {

$this_link = $link;

} else {

$this_link = '';

}

Hi all ,

 

I installed Dm with the "Choose Menu from Admin" attachement.

2 things go wrong i think : 1; the menu doesn´t work (yet) and 2: i get this error code when i try to go in my admin.

 

 

Fatal error: Class 'infoBoxHeading' not found in /home/xxxxxxxxx/public_html/admin/includes/boxes/dm_categories.php on line 98

 

 

Line 98 in dm-categories.... shows this : new infoBoxHeading($info_box_contents, true, false);

 

What did i do wrong here??

 

Many thanks in advance,

 

Rob

Well, bad news: the last one who uploaded anything to this addon was me and this was 2,5 years ago

 

The addon is not compatible with version 2.3.1 and in my eyes it is not worth to convert it. There are more modern solutions available now

 

What you need is an addon that will convert your categories structure into an unordered list, from there on you can use any css or js on it, there are many tutorilas all over the internet

I am using Dynamenu with a fly out vertical style. I would like to have the expanding folders as well so my customers can see where they are in the sub categories. Is that possible with Dynamenu or is it one or the other?

I am up to coding the PHP if need be but I wonder if it is configurable... Txs in advance!

Hello everyone.

 

I am confused and require assistance. I'm a newbie to the osCommerce world and additionally DynaMenu. I have downloaded the addon from http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/4228

 

But there doesn't seem to be any real instructions. The instructions in the "Choose_menu_type_admin_install.txt" file state:

 

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

Prepositions:

1) You need to have Dynamenu installed

2) You need to have "products in Dynamenu" by TracyS (21.2.2007) installed

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

 

There are no such addons available on the osCommerce site.

 

The rest of the instructions seem straight forward, so if someone could please assist me in finding these other two addons, I'd be extremely grateful.

 

Thank you.

Is there similar menu for v.2.3.3?

 

I thought this would work in 2.3, but I may be wrong.

 

There are

http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/7541

http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/8155/v,23

 

There may be others in the addons area.

Thank you Steve, but they are both dropdown. I would need tree or flyout multilevel menu. Can the superfish be vertical, not horizontal?
