Contribution: Category Descriptions

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how to get this to work with the salemaker mod. I have narrowed it down to this code in /catalog/modules/includes/new_products.php

 

WHAT SALEMAKER WANTS:

 

'text' => '<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, 'products_id=' . $new_products['products_id']) . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $new_products['products_image'], $new_products['products_name'], SMALL_IMAGE_WIDTH, SMALL_IMAGE_HEIGHT) . '</a><br><a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, 'products_id=' . $new_products['products_id']) . '">' . $new_products['products_name'] . '</a><br>' . $products_price);

 

 

MOD CALLS FOR THIS:

 

'text' => '<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, 'products_id=' . $new_products['products_id']) . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $new_products['products_image'], $new_products['products_name'], SMALL_IMAGE_WIDTH, SMALL_IMAGE_HEIGHT) . '</a><br><a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, 'products_id=' . $new_products['products_id']) . '">' . $img_new_product . $new_products['products_name'] . '</a><br>' . $currencies->display_price($new_products['products_price'], tep_get_tax_rate($new_products['products_tax_class_id'])));

 

Problem is no matter what I try, I cannot get the new product image to show up on the mainpage in the new products box, any suggestions???

 

((Ps. GREAT contribution :>)

Hello all,

I am trying to get this mod to work in the header.php file by bringing in only the category description field (not the heading title). I want to leave out all changes listed in the readme.txt pertaining to the index.php file.

 

Can someone assist in creating the query to the category_description field per category ID to be placed anywhere I desire in the header.php file?

 

I have many usese for this as my client wants to add the following in the admin catagory description field which actually calls a specific Flash Movie per specific category:

 

<!-- Begin Flash Movie --><object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11CF-96B8-444553540000" id="obj1" codebase="[url="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0"]http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0[/url]" border="0" width="552" height="300" align="right" hspace="0">
<param name="movie" value="images/banner-top.swf">
<param name="quality" value="High">
<embed src="images/banner-top.swf" pluginspage="[url="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"]http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer[/url]" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" name="obj1" width="552" height="300" quality="High"></object><!-- End Flash Movie -->

The above code works great when embedded into the header.php as so:

	</table>
  </td>
  <td valign="top"><a href="<?=tep_href_link('shipping.php')?>"><!-- Begin Flash Movie --><object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11CF-96B8-444553540000" id="obj1" codebase="[url="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0"]http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0[/url]" border="0" width="552" height="300" align="right" hspace="0">
<param name="movie" value="images/banner-top.swf">
<param name="quality" value="High">
<embed src="images/banner-top.swf" pluginspage="[url="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"]http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer[/url]" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" name="obj1" width="552" height="300" quality="High"></object><!-- End Flash Movie --></td></tr>
   </table>

What I am wanting to do is insert just the first code into the admin category description field (changing only the name of the specific Flash Movie) and then include the query in the header.php as below so that this mod will bring in the Flash Movie dynamically from the category description:

 

	</table>
  </td>
  <td valign="top"><a href="<?=tep_href_link('shipping.php')?>"><!-- Begin Flash Movie --> code needed to query the database for category_description<!-- End Flash Movie --></td></tr>
   </table>

I am sooo close with this and hoping that maybe one of you can nudge me in the right direction.

So in a nut shell I am trying to do the following in the header.php with this mod:

if we are displaying a category page {
select the category_description from the category table where the category id = the given one.
if the category_description is not empty {
echo out the category_description
} else {
include the default header
}
}

I will keep working on this and if I figure it out I will post it as a contribution for all.

Thanks for any help you can provide,

I got the above to work! Very Cool!

I needed to implement the category description field to be used in the admin as a input for a category Flash file since the final goal was to have a separate Flash Movie in the header.php for each specific category being displayed.

 

Here is what I did:

In step 5 of the instructions - Locate your default language under admin/includes/languages and edit the file

 

'categories.php'. Add two lines after the line that defines

 

TEXT_EDIT_CATEGORIES_IMAGE:

 

define('TEXT_EDIT_CATEGORIES_HEADING_TITLE', 'Category Heading Title:'); I DID NOT NEED THIS SO I LEFT IT OUT.

 

define('TEXT_EDIT_CATEGORIES_DESCRIPTION', 'Category Flash Movie Code:');

 

I followed the installtion of Category Descriptions in admin/actegories.php but left out the modifications in the index.php file (I needed mine to be in the header.php).

 

I added the following in header.php:

<!-- Begin Flash Movie --><?php $cat_description_query = tep_db_query ("select categories_description from " . TABLE_CATEGORIES_DESCRIPTION . " where categories_id = '" . $current_category_id . "' and language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "'");
$cat_description = tep_db_fetch_array ($cat_description_query);
if ((int)$current_category_id <= 0) {echo' <center><object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11CF-96B8-444553540000" id="obj1" codebase="[url="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0"]http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0[/url]" border="0" width="552" height="300" align="right" hspace="0">
<param name="movie" value="images/banner-top.swf">
<param name="quality" value="High">
<embed src="images/banner-top.swf" pluginspage="[url="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"]http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer[/url]" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" name="obj1" width="552" height="300" quality="High"></object></center>';}
else echo '<center><h1>' . $cat_description['categories_description'] . '</h1></center>'; ?><!-- End Flash Movie -->

 

Now in the Categories Flash Movie input field in the admin, the user can enter the following PHP script exchanging the Flash Movie Name for any .swf file he chooses to use for that particulay category:

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11CF-96B8-444553540000" id="obj1" codebase="[url="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0"]http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0[/url]" border="0" width="552" height="300" align="right" hspace="0">
<param name="movie" value="images/Flash Movie Name.swf">
<param name="quality" value="High">
<embed src="images/Flash Movie Name.swf" pluginspage="[url="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"]http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer[/url]" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" name="obj1" width="552" height="300" quality="High"></object>

 

This is very sweet. A special thanks to the original author of Categories Descriptions and making it so very easy to modify to one's specific needs.

I have installed this contribution and it works perfectly at the first category level, but on sub categories it is not showing the category description. The website can be found here - www.sadbox.co.uk

 

If you choose "Daylight Lamps" the category description is shown, but all other sub categories and categories without sub categories are not showing their descriptions.

 

In the admin panel everything is working fine and all categories have a description and all information is being held in the database. I have read this entire thread and noticed that some people were having problems with header tag controller but I used joeri's fix and it seems to have worked.

 

I think it has something to do with the last piece of code that needs to be changed in the index.php file, as this is the piece of code that should show the category description in sub categories and categories without any sub categories.

 

<TD COLSPAN="2" CLASS="main">
		<?php echo tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $image, (!empty($cat_description['categories_heading_title']) ? $cat_description['categories_heading_title'] : HEADING_TITLE), HEADING_IMAGE_WIDTH, HEADING_IMAGE_HEIGHT, 'ALIGN=right'); ?>
		<?php echo $cat_description['categories_description']; ?>
		</TD>

 

This piece of code - <?php echo $cat_description['categories_description']; ?> is not retrieving the category description.

 

Anybody else with the same problem?

I'm getting the same problem, main categories are working fine, but the subcategories are not functioning for instead of category title and description, this is showing up

  	$cat_description_query = tep_db_query ("select categories_heading_title, categories_description from " . TABLE_CATEGORIES_DESCRIPTION . " where categories_id = '" . $current_category_id . "' and language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "'");
$cat_description = tep_db_fetch_array ($cat_description_query);

any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated

I inserted this:

<!--  BOF Category Description for a range of products, extension of Category Descriptions -->
<?php
 $category_query = tep_db_query("select cd.categories_name, c.categories_image,cd.categories_description,cd.categories_heading_title from " . TABLE_CATEGORIES . " c, " . TABLE_CATEGORIES_DESCRIPTION . " cd where c.categories_id = '" . (int)$current_category_id . "' and cd.categories_id = '" . (int)$current_category_id . "' and cd.language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "'");

$category = tep_db_fetch_array($category_query);
?>
<tr>
<td><?php echo $category['categories_description']; ?></td>
</tr>
<!--  EOF Category Description for a range of products, extension of Category Descriptions -->

 

right before this:

 

<tr>

	<td><?php include(DIR_WS_MODULES . FILENAME_PRODUCT_LISTING); ?></td>

  </tr>

</table></td>

<?php
 } else { // default page

 

I have just tried it and am testing it now, but it seems to be working. This was just my sloppy way of initializing the $category variable, which I think we need for this instead of the $cat_description array. The code is just copied from its earlier occurence in index.php.

 

Joeri, thanks for the great contrib! If this isn't proper, let me know. I am not a php coder yet. Working for me, though.

This is a wonderful contribution -- just the quick fix I needed.

 

However . . . (isn't that the way it always goes? ;))

 

I'm getting this error when I go to save the description:

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/queen15/public_html/catalog/admin/includes/languages/english/categories.php:241) in /home/queen15/public_html/catalog/admin/includes/functions/general.php on line 22

 

Now, the information is being saved correctly, but now it's throwing the error.

 

Thanks for any help!

I've added this contribution, but my descriptions do not show up. I am a new osCommerce user, and have not added any other contributions (yet!). I have verified, using PHPmyAdmin, that the new columns have been added and they do contain the descriptions (& titles) that I entered using the admin pages (as modified by this contribution).

 

As mentioned by another user (craigf, on 4/14), the piece of code - <?php echo $cat_description['categories_description']; ?> does not appear to be retrieving the category description (I put in debug echo statements that produced null strings). The same is true of the <?php echo $cat_description['categories_heading_title']; ?> statement. However, it doesn't even work for the main categories for me (I only have 5 categories & no subcategories).

 

Can somebody tell me where this array is supposed to be initialized? (I did a search of the catalog folder & all subfolders and could not find it (searching for string: "cat_description").

Is there any way to use this in order to add different images to the categories? I am using a mod to make the categories display as images vs. text in the categories box. However, it uses the images of the category. I want to be able to have two fields in the admin section. One for category image (the one that is displayed in the content area) and one for the menu image (in the categories box). I've searched all around and I attempted to modify the contribution myself to no avail.

 

If anyone can help me out, that'd be great.

 

I assumed you just install the admin part of the category and then just enter a URL into the descriptions field in the admin section and then modify the category image box contribution to call that table instead of the image table.

This is the general contribution support thread of Category Descriptions.

You can find the latest version at: http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,4294

 

Please, leave any questions concering bugs, problems, or suggestions in this thread.

 

I recently installed this contribution on a version of osCommerce running as a Joomla component. Everything works great, except I cannot edit or update the categories_heading_title or categories_description from the osCommerce admin tool (Catalog > Categories, categories.php).

 

When I add content to the category heading title and category description fields directly into the database (via MySQL command line), the content displays in my web site, no problem. The content is also available when I edit the category in the osCommerce admin area, categories.php. However, when I save the category, the content in the database fields are deleted. Similarly, if I type in content in the admin tool and save, nothing is saved to the database except an empty string. (???)

 

I've ruled out any database permissions problems and have narrowed the problem down to some incompatibility in the categories.php file.

 

Any suggestion at all would be appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance.

Ok, it's fixed. Just for the record and for general interest, the issue seems to have been with $HTTP_POST_VARS vs. $_POST.

 

CONTRIBUTION CODE (caused problem on my configuration of osC):

$categories_heading_title_array = $HTTP_POST_VARS['categories_heading_title'];

$categories_description_array = $HTTP_POST_VARS['categories_description'];

 

MY FIX:

$categories_heading_title_array = $_POST['categories_heading_title'];

$categories_description_array = $_POST['categories_description'];

 

Lesson learned!

Shoot me now please. (w00t)

It's been too long of a week already.

HTML code works just fine. The guy pounding the keys don't! :wacko:

I used [ b ] [ /b ] instead of < b > < /b >

I have a slight problem... and I double checked my installation per directions and still can figure out where I went wrong. :blush:

 

First the catergory image moved to the center of the page, I fixed that and it's back to the right.

As seen here - http://handeshobbies.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=22_27_41

 

But I can't seem to get the "Show: Manufacturers" pull-down list box back to center.

It's off to the right a little as seen here - http://handeshobbies.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=1_31

 

Any ideas?

I played around with the coding in catalog/index.php and got it fixed.

There was a few extra < TD >'s and < TR >'s that needed to be removed.

I have the same problem as everyone else.

 

Top categories work fine - sub-cats don't.

 

Data enters my database and then isn't pulled out by index.php

 

I've tried MPMD's fix and that didn't seem to work (although I'm not sure I understood the fix exactly).

 

Anyone got any ideas on this one?

 

Cheers

Take a look at my post (#32):

This allows you to have a category description for a subcategory. I haven't tried having a sub-subcategory; however this works for my purposes, hopefully for yours, too. You may want to style the description so it looks prettier, however.
