[Contribution] STS v4

Recommended Posts

Sam, I do not recommend putting the SESSIONID in the link. You should just follow the guidelines as posted in that knowledge base article.

 

Also, you can include PHP code in your STS template which is one of the reasons STS is so simple to use with osCommerce. :thumbsup: One way I take advantage of this is using the PHP include statement so that I can have one header.php.html and one footer.php.html template for all of my pages in my site. :thumbsup:

 

 

So far so good. I'll have to replace all my links with this method... which is a bit of a pain. But overall less of a pain than it not working. :)

 

Note to all who aren't php geniuses. When using these tep_href_link php anchors with javascript (like mouseovers etc.) be sure to use escape characters where javascript requires single quotes.

 

An example from the site I'm working on....

 

<?php echo '<p><a href="' . tep_href_link('product_info.php', 'cPath=1&products_id=29') . '" onmouseover="changeImages(\'nav_longsleeve\', \'images/nav_longsleeve-over.gif\'); return true;" onmouseout="changeImages(\'nav_longsleeve\', \'images/nav_longsleeve.gif\'); return true;"><img src="images/nav_longsleeve.gif" alt="Long Sleeve Tees" name="nav_longsleeve" width="143" height="24" border="0"></a></p>'; ?>

 

If you notice the backslashes before the single quotes, those are necessary, otherwise the php parser will think you are closing the string statement. The JavaScript parser will then get really confused and not behave properly.

 

Just a heads up.

 

 

Also, I thought I'd quickly bump one of my previously unanswered question. I hope no one minds...

 

If I wanted to layout the $content materials for all of the account_edit, account_history, account_newsletters, etc. so that it adheres to custom css, would I have to go through and manually make $variables for each field and each piece of text in each of those pages?

 

If so, has anyone done this already? If yes, can they share their sts_user_code.php? I'd hate to reinvent this particular wheel.

 

I know from previous responses that they'd end up in the /content/ folder, I just want to make sure I know what I have to do before I start trying to move mountains.

 

 

Thanks again for everyone's help.

 

Sam

Basically that's the idea about the content templates.

 

You must create a module for each page that uses content template. This module takes care of finding the right template and content template. Check the product info module for example.

 

Then you need an extra file where all the $ variables are defined.

Hi!

 

I am using the sts pack v4.3.2 . I can see the HTC : page control, text control, fill tags on the admin side. But now I come to see on file manager, under folder catalog/admin that the HT_C, HT_english, HT_fill_tags, and HT_popup_fills has mods only for user > read and write, and for groups and others> read. Should'nt the execute mod be turned on to user, groups and others?

 

Thanks! :rolleyes:

Hey there Rigadin and Bill,

 

Just got through upgrading to 4.4 and it works extra nice :thumbsup: As always thanks for your work on this.

 

I have a quick question on the procedure for integrating something like ultrapics into the popup template; as in how might that be done (in broad terms).

 

Ultrapics adds this bit of code to the popup html to iterate through the various options.

 

<?php
	   if ($_GET['image'] ==0) {
 echo tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $products['products_image_lrg'], $products['products_name']);
 } elseif ($_GET['image'] ==1) {
 echo tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $products['products_image_xl_1'], $products['products_name']);
 } elseif ($_GET['image'] ==2) {
 echo tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $products['products_image_xl_2'], $products['products_name']);
 } elseif ($_GET['image'] ==3) {
 echo tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $products['products_image_xl_3'], $products['products_name']);
 } elseif ($_GET['image'] ==4) {
 echo tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $products['products_image_xl_4'], $products['products_name']);
 } elseif ($_GET['image'] ==5) {
 echo tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $products['products_image_xl_5'], $products['products_name']);
 } elseif ($_GET['image'] ==6) {
 echo tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $products['products_image_xl_6'], $products['products_name']);
 } elseif ($_GET['image'] ==7) {
 echo tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $products['products_image'], $products['products_name']);
 } ?>

 

Any tips on capturing this in STS? I'm hoping it's obvious and it's just too early in the morning :rolleyes:

 

Thanks,

 

Iggy

Hello Iggy,

 

I have done something related to popup and extra images (More Pics 6 + ACA). It won't work out of the box for you but it's a good start. It adds Next and Previous buttons to go through the images.

 

Check the STS Power Pack contribution (link in my signature).

Hello all,

 

I've just updated my site with STS v4 and getting the following on the first page:

 

"Fatal error: Call to a member function on a non-object in /home/fhlinux176/s/seasonsofkent.com/user/htdocs/catalog/includes/functions/html_output.php on line 78"

 

This is on www.seasonsofkent.com/catalog

 

This is the code in question:

 

76 // START STS v4.4:

77 global $sts;

78 $sts->image($src); // Take image from template folder if exists.

79 // END STS v4.4

 

Please help!

Hi

 

I updated my STS V4.3.3 to V4.4. But I got this message on top of the heading inside the body of my website.

Template file does not exist: [MODULE_STS_TEMPLATES_FOLDER full/index.php.html].

 

What did I do wrong?

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Hi!

 

This is in accordance to the message I posted before this. I think I know what's the problem. Under the default, I am lacking the field "Base folder", I can see only the box without the text on top.

 

What did I miss doing? I copied only files under "new files" and I checked it again.

 

Thanks!

Ran into that. Since the base folder is a new db item, uninstall the module in the admin then reinstall it and it will populate the db.

 

HTH,

Hello JG,

 

I know you mentioned this is a store with no other contributions installed but is it really a clean osC? For example, did you comment out any code in the index.php file regarding column_left or column-right?

Thanks Rigadin for the heads up on the power pack.

 

Just in case anyone out there is using Ultrapics here's some code that works for /includes/modules/sts_inc/popup_image.php.

 

<?php
// Ultrapics mods
 $products_query = tep_db_query("select pd.products_name, p.products_image, p.products_image_lrg, p.products_image_xl_1, p.products_image_xl_2, p.products_image_xl_3, p.products_image_xl_4, p.products_image_xl_5, p.products_image_xl_6 from " . TABLE_PRODUCTS . " p left join " . TABLE_PRODUCTS_DESCRIPTION . " pd on p.products_id = pd.products_id where p.products_status = '1' and p.products_id = '" . (int)$_GET['pID'] . "' and pd.language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "'");
 $products = tep_db_fetch_array($products_query);
 $sts->template['productname'] = $products['products_name'];
 $sts->template['productmodel'] =  $products['products_model'];

	   if ($_GET['image'] ==0) {
 $sts->template['popupimage'] = tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $products['products_image_lrg'],'','','', 'name="prodimage"');
 } elseif ($_GET['image'] ==1) {
 $sts->template['popupimage'] = tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $products['products_image_xl_1'],'','','', 'name="prodimage"');
 } elseif ($_GET['image'] ==2) {
 $sts->template['popupimage'] = tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $products['products_image_xl_2'],'','','', 'name="prodimage"');
 } elseif ($_GET['image'] ==3) {
 $sts->template['popupimage'] = tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $products['products_image_xl_3'],'','','', 'name="prodimage"');
 } elseif ($_GET['image'] ==4) {
 $sts->template['popupimage'] = tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $products['products_image_xl_4'],'','','', 'name="prodimage"');
 } elseif ($_GET['image'] ==5) {
 $sts->template['popupimage'] = tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $products['products_image_xl_5'],'','','', 'name="prodimage"');
 } elseif ($_GET['image'] ==6) {
 $sts->template['popupimage'] = tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $products['products_image_xl_6'],'','','', 'name="prodimage"');
 } elseif ($_GET['image'] ==7) {
 $sts->template['popupimage'] = tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $products['products_image'],'','','', 'name="prodimage"');
 } ?>

 

Dead simple. Really have to start in on these things before 2am. :rolleyes:

 

Hope this comes in handy for someone else and thanks!

Hi!

 

This is the more specific detailed problem. I have been mailing this problem, I guess nobody really understands the problem. Product name not showing after entering at product title tag at meta tag information.

 

Under catalog at admin side:

 

Press New product >

 

Meta tag information:

 

Product title tag:

Product Description Tag:

Product Keywords Tag:

 

After entering these tags, press preview, preview shows the product description, the picture, ID. Then update, showing a picture with product Id but not the product name. At the website, the pictures is showing and only the price showing under it, without the product name. When pressed on the product to have more product info, the product name still does'nt show and the header *breadcrumbs" points to product ID.

 

Now what's going on here. Where is the product name? It's been a week trying to solve this problem.

Hopefully somebody can tell.

 

Thanks!

Just one note: the title/information/keywords tags have nothing to do with the display of the product name. These tags are placed in the header of the page so Google and other crawles can read them, but they are never display to customers.

 

Product name is one of the first field in the product editor: have you fill it? If yes but it does not appear in the preview, then you have a problem in admin/categories.php. If it's not in the preview, it won't be in database and won't be on your product info page.

Hello my friend,

 

Try this: Go to the STS Contribution download page and download the STS osCommerce 060817 module patch. I know that it says it is for STS 4.2 and 4.3 but it will also help you out with 4.4.

 

Hope this helped you out,

Hi I'm still having the same prob :( :'(

 

javascript error when trying to popup a window.

 

this is the source of the product page as it shows on the store

 

 

it starts like this:

 

<html dir="LTR" lang="en">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<title>Store</title><base href="store/catalog/">

<!-- start get_javascript(applicationtop2header) //-->

<!-- end get_javascript(applicationtop2header) //-->

 <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="stylesheet.css">
</head>
<body marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" topmargin="0" bottommargin="0" leftmargin="0" rightmargin="0">

 

and this is the popup part:

<script language="javascript"><!--
document.write('<a href="java script:popupWindow(\'store/catalog/popup_image.php?pID=33\')"><img src="images/gold_1.jpg" border="0" alt="Gold 1" title=" Gold 1 " width="100" height="80" hspace="5" vspace="5"><br>Click to enlarge</a>');
//--></script>
<noscript>

 

my guess is that something is wrong with the header cus' it showes the start get (javascript) and the end get (javascript), line after like and not including the body between those lines.

 

I just dont know how to fix this or where to look for, my header have this code in it:

 

<?php
/*
 $Id: header.php,v 1.42 2003/06/10 18:20:38 hpdl Exp $

 osCommerce, Open Source E-Commerce Solutions
 [url=http://www.oscommerce.com]http://www.oscommerce.com[/url]

*/

 // START STS 4.1
 $sts->restart_capture ('applicationtop2header'); // Capture header from the actual script, needed to take out javascript
 // END STS 4.1

 

and i dont know if its wrong or not

 

any idea ?

 

Tnx :rolleyes:

Look the page in debug mode (add sts_debug=debug in the URL) and scroll down the page until you see what is inside the applicationtop2header placeholder. There should be some js code. No?

Hi rigadin2

 

here is the code as shown in the debug mode, there is no js code between those lines, any suggestions ?

I'm brand new to OSC, STS and coding in general so please excuse my general ignorance. A friend of mine designed a web template for an old site I was working on and I want to use it for my store. I was hoping I could simply upload the HTML and CSS files, add in the STS codes for OSC content and make any further adjustments as needed. But that doesn't work.

 

What can I do to keep the styling of my old site in OSC?

Thank you, this was just what I was looking for as well!

 

In catalog/includes/classes/sts.php, find the following code:
// If script name contains "popup" then turn off templates and display the normal output
 // This is required to prevent display of standard page elements (header, footer, etc) from the template and allow javascript code to run properly
 // Do not add pages here unless it is from the standard osC and really should be there. If you have a special page that you don't want with template,
 // Create a module sts_mypagename.php that returns an empty string as template filename, it will automatically switch off STS for this page.
if (strstr($scriptbasename, "popup")|| strstr($scriptbasename, "info_shopping_cart")) {
  $this->display_template_output = false;
  return;
}

Add the additional scriptname that you need STS to ingore so it will not add the header, footer, etc. For example: Your code would end up looking like this if you wanted STS to ignore the login.php script file:

	if (strstr($scriptbasename, "popup")|| strstr($scriptbasename, "login")|| strstr($scriptbasename, "info_shopping_cart")) {
  $this->display_template_output = false;
  return;
}

You can also add any other filenames if needed.

Hope this has helped,

Bill Kellum
