In the code for the dropdown, add a default:

 

              <tr>
               <td class="main"><?php echo ENTRY_COUNTRY; ?></td>
               <td class="main"><?php echo tep_get_country_list('country',[color="#FF0000"][b]'223'[/b][/color]) . ' ' . (tep_not_null(ENTRY_COUNTRY_TEXT) ? '<span class="inputRequirement">' . ENTRY_COUNTRY_TEXT . '</span>': ''); ?></td>
             </tr>

223 Is USA.

 

In my DB United Kingdon is 222.


If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.

Thanks for that. I've just worked out another solution that might be useful; in includes/general/functions roundabout line 190, the function that gets the countries list; you can change the order to be ordered by country id rather than name;

 

$countries = tep_db_query("select countries_id, countries_name from " . TABLE_COUNTRIES . " order by countries_id");

 

Then you can organise the table in the database ( named countries!) in whatever order you like. Presumably then it will be the same wherever the countries list is called up? Although not in the admin section I've just noticed...

Sussed it.. In admin/countries.php line 91 do the same trick

 

$countries_query_raw = "select countries_id, countries_name, countries_iso_code_2, countries_iso_code_3, address_format_id from " . TABLE_COUNTRIES . " order by countries_id";

 

and there's also line 597 in admin/functions/general.php, although I'm not sure where this is called;

 

$countries_query = tep_db_query("select countries_id, countries_name from " . TABLE_COUNTRIES . " order by countries_id");

 

Anyway now you can just edit the order in admin->countries as it will appear in the drop down boxes. Seems to work ok for me so far, I'll get back if any problems.

This is the first time using a host to upload files etc. I have WYSNC mostly. All this info is extremely helpful. I have one little question.

You say to go to such pages as

 

catalog/admin/inculdes/languages/LanguageNAME

 

I don't have any idea what or where this is. I might not knowingly know but not so much. How do I get to these pages.

 

Thank for the time yoiu spent on this stuff.

Hi! Need help from osc gurus :) There is problem with product_info page. Attribute of product goes after description but I need to to change their places. When I try to did it, nothing work, may be because in my template file attribute code located after "Not editable part".

How do you add a "close window" function to the Product Popup Image?

Share this post


Link to post
Share on other sites

At the bottom of /catalog/popup_image.php just BEFORE the </body> tag ADD this code:

 

<p class="smallText" align="center"><?php echo '<a href="java script:window.close()">' . 'Close Window</a>'; ?></p>

The forum screws up the code I posted, you MUST remove the space between java and script or it won't work.

 

Always backup a file before making edits.


If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.

Here's another handy utility for finding those pesky little CSS elements that you'd like to customize.

 

It's an addon to Firefox called Firebug. It not only will show you the CSS element, it will show you exactly what line in your css file the element is calling!

How do I change the Banner at the bottom with one of my own? I figured it would be easy like changing the header, but I cant find oscommerce.gif in order to change t to my banner title.

How do I change the Banner at the bottom with one of my own? I figured it would be easy like changing the header, but I cant find oscommerce.gif in order to change t to my banner title.

 

Hi There.

Here's the way I did it.

Open the file: includes/footer.php

Look for the part of the code that looks similar to mine. (around line 25)

You can see that I changed the banner size to 468x 60 which is a standard size.

 

[code]
<?php
 if ($banner = tep_banner_exists('dynamic', '468x60')) {
?>
<table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="10">
 <tr>
<td align="center"><?php echo tep_display_banner('static', $banner); ?></td>
 </tr>
</table>
<?php
 }
?>

[/code]

 

Then go into your admin banner manager and enter a new banner group with the size 468x60.

Then just create a text or image banner.

I've used the same bit of code to show ads in the left and right columns, with sizes 120x240 and 125x125.

My site is at www.drumcentral.co.uk

You'll see the 125x125 ad at the bottom of the left column and the 120x240 ad in the right column, as well as the 468x60 in the footer.

If you reload the page you'll see different ads each time.

 

Hope this helps

 

Kenny

Take a look in the includes/languges/english.php file.

 

Jack

 

 

 

I tried to get rid f the main page text and it made my entire front page blank. Im a newbie and this programing is extremly frustrating. Does anyone know where I might be able to get some simple templates? or perhaps get another shopping cart system that is actually set up properly?

 

It seems like in order to run this program you need to already know PHP programing or forget it.

 

Im fucking lost and agrivated beyond comprehension right now ready to rip my air out. I also tried to install a define main page but there are so many different directories with the same names im completly confused. if NAYONE can help me out I would really appreciate it. I cant believe how fucking ASS BACKwards this program is.

 

This is like getting photoshop, but in order to get It to work you need to log into it and set up your tools and design the whole program in order to just use it.

 

WHY DO THEY MAKE A PROGRAM THAT DOESNT WORK ON ITS OWN ALREADY?A

I also tried to install a define main page but there are so many different directories with the same names im completly confused. if NAYONE can help me out I would really appreciate it. I cant believe how fucking ASS BACKwards this program is.

 

This is like getting photoshop, but in order to get It to work you need to log into it and set up your tools and design the whole program in order to just use it.

 

WHY DO THEY MAKE A PROGRAM THAT DOESNT WORK ON ITS OWN ALREADY?

 

 

Hey Lestat,

 

I had the same problem...but don't sweat it. It's just a simple syntax error. You are editing server side language with this stuff and it doesn't like certain things. Somewhere in your text you have put a comma ' without putting a backslash \ in front of it. Something like there's has to be written as there\'s or the server goes all hinky. At least that's the most common problem I have.

 

Comma's mark the beginning and end of functions, text...everything within definitions. It basically means START or STOP elements inside the brackets to the program. If it's told to stop and not to start again it hangs up. Same with parenthesis. If there is a ( left parenthesis, somewhere there has to be a ); right parenthesis and semicolon to end it. Just the way it works.

 

I understand your frustration. It doesn't have a debugger so the problem is hard to diagnose for a novice. Which I am, but I'm accustom to programming and know how much compilers like things to be just so. The good news is...you do not even want to know how much code writing something like this cool little osCommerce program saves us. I would have to write 10's of thousands of lines of Cobol or C++ code to get the same thing done and then integrate it into htiml. But it can be frustrating not to get error codes.

 

Hope that helps. Good luck.

Hi there.

 

Sorry to hear about your web site problems.

it can be very VERY frustrating, dealing with PHP,MYSQL,HTML,CSS...... etc, especially if you're relatively new to this.

it may be something simple, but it's worth looking into.

 

When you restored your files, are they in exactly the same place as they were previously?

For example, are they in a folder on your server (your_server/oscommerce/) or a different folder?

Is the folder named the same as before?

 

That can mean that the files just wont work if they're in the wrong place.

You also have to make sure that the permissions for all the files are correct.

 

But it could be any other minor/major problem.

 

Does the database have the same name?

 

Can you post the web address of your site, or where it should be?

 

You can also email me at webmaster@drumcentral.co.uk if you like.

When you add an item to your cart and you checkout, before you login you are shown a page listing all your items. Is it possible to a) change the remove checkbox into a link so I can just click the link to remove the item and B) add the price of the item into the columns, preferably next to qty?

 

Or are there any threads on it? Been trying to search for them.

Hello all,

 

I'm new to osC, but I've manged to install and configure several contributions. It's really cool stuff, by the way!!

 

My question is; since my store doesn't ship products I don't need to collect street addresses, or phone numbers, etc.

 

Is there a way to edit the default customer details, street address, city, state, etc. And change the "required information" status to false?

 

Thanks for looking!

 

Best Regards,

To answer my own question I found two contributions that were very useful.

 

1. Required Customer Details - http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/5407

2. Customers extra fields - http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/3737

 

The first contribution gives you a choice for all of the default customer details to be required, optional, or hidden.

 

The second contribution allows you create additional fields for other information you may want to gather from your customers. It also gives you the option to make your new fields required or optional.

 

Thanks for looking! Hope this helps!!

Hi All

 

I have been going around in circles for days now anf getting rather dizzy and racked off with it all. I too agree with the post below in regards to newbies.

 

What I am trying to do is add order forms and drop down boxes into each product that I have listed.

 

I am not a osc prof and I have no idea on coding, but having somebody trying to help with basic knowledge.

 

Can somebody please help.

 

We have tried what Sam said to do but we are using a template and the code that he is saying change just dont exist on this.

 

Thanks
