[Contribution] STS v4

Recommended Posts

Call stack comes from the debugger I have installed, it doesn't come up with default PHP installation. referencing line 52 just points to the closing tag of the same function as the line 33, maybe it's PHP version that causes the errors to be different. However I just noticed that the error comes from incorrect upgrade.

If you upgrade your STS Plus 4.07 to STS 4.1, remember to modify application_bottom.php and remove the following lines from there (as these are now handled in footer.php):

 

$sts->stop_capture('footer2applicationbottom');

require (DIR_WS_MODULES . 'sts_inc/sts_display_output.php'); // Print everything out

Thanks teniemi - i confirmed this as well having to go back through the install process again and the same error popping up. Is there any official reference to the fix you mentioned above? I didn't see it the 4.07 to 4.1 update section of the 4.1 install.html, and all we were told to do is replace application_bottom yet no application_bottom file was provided. i guess we were supposed to get that file from the base OSC install package. Perhaps Bill or Rigadin can update 4.1 install in the contrib section so other 4.07 upgraders don't have this same problem.

 

cheers

Regarding STS and HTC....

 

For the page title of my catalog home page (index.php_0.html) all i get is "- osCommerce :". For my category product listings I get the category name followed by osCommerce ex. "Vertical Streamers - osCommerce :" For my individual products I get the correct page title ex. "Nirvana Streamer"

 

Can anyone help please? My understanding is that STS will insert the header content of the template and override HTC. It is not pulling header info (<!--$headcontent-->) from my templates at all - Am i missing an obvious step or piece of knowledge?

Hi,

 

I've not had any feedback on my query a couple of days ago, and can't find similar problems with the STS install in this forum, can anyone help me with the actual installation of STS 4? This was my original comment:

 

 

I'm fairly new to osCommerce so jumped at the change to make editing of templates easier. I've downloaded STS 4.1 as well as the updates (dated 12th and 14th April) and uploaded these new files to my site, but though I'm getting the STS menu option in my admin/modules, it shows the same list as for 'Payment Modules'. That is, I'm not seeing any opportunity to actually enable 'default' and get started.

 

Am I missing something obvious?! Thanks so much

 

Mike

Mike, I know you probably already did this but it would benefit you to do it again. Go over your entire installation of STS 4.1 very slowly. Confirm that you actually copied all of the files and folders over to your web server keeping the folder structure of the contribution intact. It appears that you did not transfer all of the STS files or folders over to your shops directory. Double check everything.

 

By the way, what version of osCommerce are you using? Is it Cre-loaded or just the standard osCommerce? Have you installed any other contributions to osCommerce? Please provide more info.

 

Thanks, Bill Kellum

Thanks very much Bill - I installed osCommerce 2.2ms2-051113, and also have Easy Populate EP_v2_76_MS2. I only downloaded STS 4.1, added the clean_osc folder and the 4.1 update (though I don't think I did anything with the 'upload' folder. Otherwise I think all the required files have been added. While the STS directory shows up in the admin area of the website, its contents are the same as the Payment section.

 

Thanks again

Mike, I feel your problems arise from an incorrect installation of STS. Here is what you needed to do:

 

1. Follow the instructions in the install text in section 3b.

 

2. You will need to manually edit each file listed in the Admin and Catalog sections of the install text.

 

3. Follow the instructions in the install text in the "Configuration" section. For a simple template system, all you need to do is enable the new "Default" module that is located in the Admin/Modules/BOX_MODUELES_STS section of your stores admin panel.

 

You should now be able to get things going. By making the manual edits to each page, your other contributions, in your case Easy Populate, should work with no issues (that is if they were working before your STS installation of course).

 

Hope this helps,

Currently, I do not use the "Header Tag" contribution but I do know that it's sole purpose is to replace the metatags of your store's pages. Soooooooooo, I would dive into that contributions help files to see how it does that.

 

With that said, those that use STS to design their pages need to make a choice...do I manually enter the tag info into each page or do I use a contribution such as Header Tag Controller to do it for me? I do not think you can do both and it appears this is what you are trying to do. Am I correct in thinking this or am I the one missing something here? :blink:

 

Trying to be helpful,

Hi,

 

I have installed the new 4.1 version with all the updates and the typo update, I have re-checked everything, but still get a blank page when I enable the sts.

 

I have tried the test & full templates but still get a blank page. when I disable the sts everything is fine.

 

Have I missed something ?

 

This is my sts.php file:

aloha Bill,

 

I did that and it still does the same. Allow me to be a bit more specific.

 

For the page title of my catalog home page (index.php_0.html) all i get is "- osCommerce :". For my category product listings I get the category name followed by osCommerce ex. "Vertical Streamers - osCommerce :" For my individual products I get the correct page title ex. "Nirvana Streamer"

 

I am using product info/content templates specific to each category, a template for the catalog home page and the default template for everything else - including category product listings and my secondary pages, such as shipping.php, which also only get "- osCommerce :").

 

Any ideas? - thanks for all your help, it really has made a difference over here! :D

Take a look at the following posts in the HTC forum just to be sure you have HTC setup correctly:

Boy I appreciate you sticking with me on this one. None of the functions in the HTC Text Control work for the pages (they are all red) because we were told not to do the catalog php file modifications to HTC if we have STS. If I do those modifications for index.php, for example, it works and draws the header info from templates (index_0, etc)- go figure?

 

The problem now that it is not bringing in the fields that HTC populated for the products so that I can't have a page title that matches my product name. Even if I go back to an unmodified index.php. The wierd thing is that right after I installed HTC (and all the pages were red). I populated the HTC product fields and it was successfully generating the product page titles. Now I can't get it to behave that way again.

 

Is there a file I can delete or restore that would give me the initial settings for HTC? Any other ideas for this in general?

 

PS: I am using product info and content templates

For some strange reason I also get 2 headers on my page (http://www.retroshop.nl). If you look in the source you will see that it put some code before the <head>.

This is after a upgrade from 4.07

Frisser, you did not add the following:

 

Open catalog/includes/header.php

add this code at the beginning:

[font=monospace]  // START [/font][font=monospace]STS 4.1[/font][font=monospace]
 $sts->restart_capture ('applicationtop2header');
 // END [/font][font=monospace]STS 4.1[/font]

and be sure to remove the old sts 4.07 start capture code at the bottom of the same page.

 

Hope this helps,

How do i upgrade form version 2.0 to 4.1?
The easiest way would be to completely uninstall v2 and follow the install instructions for a new installation of 4.1.

 

However; you can always follow these instructions as well:

 

- Make a backup of your application, files and db.

- Do it again.

- Remove STS v2 or v3, but keep the files near, especially sts_user_code.php. Files to modify: configure.php, header.php, column_left.php, column_right.php, footer.php .

- Install STS v4.1

- Put back your specialities in the new sts_user_code.php, using the new syntax (see example in the file itself).

- Test well.

 

Hope this helps,

To remove STS v2 or v3 from your store, you also have to remove STS code from application_top.php (end of the file) and from application_bottom (beginning of the file). The files starting by sts_ in the includes folder can be deleted (or copied somewhere else, just in case something goes wrong).

 

Be sure that you remove sts code from the configure.php file, otherwise you will not be able to choose the template folder from URL nor from STS4 default module in admin.

STS v4.5 SP5 is out, and check the STS Power Pack contribution too!

New thumbnailer using phpThumb: oscThumb. Works great.

To upgrade from STS PLUS to STS4, instructions tell to replace the file application_bottom.php with a new one... which is not provided in the package. Well, in fact STS4 does not require any modification in this file, so what you have to do is to remove from application_bottom.php the code related to STS PLUS.

wrong sts.php version was causing the double headers in my case

Hi,

 

I recently installed osCommerce, everything worked fine (images, links, etc.) so I installed STS 4.1 a couple days ago. I got the index.php.html page updated so I basically just copied it for the product_info.php.html page. The second page however doesn't show any images even though when I look at the code, it appears to be correct. Can someone look at my page and see if you can see something I'm missing? http://www.westvillagedesign.com

 

Also, I guess I am not understanding how to create templates for all of the "extra" pages in osC. By that I mean the cart, user account pages, check out and every page other than products and index.php. I'm missing that part because I see a lot pages with code but they don't seem like something I should be editing :huh: If someone could point me in the right direction I'd really appreciate it.

 

Thanks,

Diana

Bill,

 

Yes all is set as above and default is enabled. The other two templates index and product info are not installed is this correct ?

 

Other than that I have tried installing it all again and still get the same problem.

 

When I try to go to use the STS the page actually loads, ie it gives the page heading a title

 

http://englishbooksdirect.com/catalog/index.php

 

So it may be a problem with the inital code I am not sure.

This is the sts.php file that came with the small STS v4.1 update. It is different from the sts.php file included in the small typo contribution. DO NOT COPY AND PASTE THE CODE ABOVE BECAUSE THE CODE WINDOW USED IN THIS FORUM REMOVES THE ACCURATE SPACES NEEDED IN THE CODE AND FORMATS EVERYTHING INCORRECTLY TO THE LEFT.

 

Once you change the sts.php file, go to your admin panel and remove the Sts Default module. Now, reinstall the Default module and set the use template to "true". Close your browser and then reopen to your web store. It should work for you. I don't know why this happend to you, but it appears the Default module included in the 4.1 update is buggy.

wrong sts.php version was causing the double headers in my case
Bas, which sts.php file did you use? Was it the one from the April 14 small update contribution or did you bring the sts.php file over from your STS Plus 4.07 contribution?

 

This would be good to know.

 

Thanks,
