[contribution] Multilayer SEO Pop Out Menu

Recommended Posts

Hi I just tried changing the code in fwr_cat_functions.php and reset the menu, it doesnt change c.sort_order, but it lists all the sub categories as the main category when I chose c.categories_id.

 

I dont have cache enabled in the shop, but it does seem when you use the cache for this contribution, the search box dissapears, same when you switch on cache, must be some bug in oscommerce?

Only for you so it seems a site specific coding issue

Menu was the right way round before the contribution was installed

Are you talking about sort order? if so I posted the code about two posts up. Last thing I was commenting on was a disappearing search box.

I tried the code posted two posts up, (thanks for that) what happend when I changed the code was one option didnt change anything, the other option made the whole sub category visable in the main category.

 

Ive got Chemo's SEO urls installed (also the reason I chose this contribution for the benifits of SEO), its set to cName rather than rewrite, do you think that could have anything to do with it? I dont know am only guessing now, my category list is listed in alphabetical order, but when I install SEO Pop Out Menu, the category list changes to reverse alphabetical order.

Just add to the query DESC for descending or ASC for ascending e.g.

 

ORDER BY c.parent_id, $order_by, cDescr.categories_name DESC

 

or

 

ORDER BY c.parent_id, $order_by, cDescr.categories_name ASC

 

[edit]Sorry forgot to add the file is includes/fwr_cat_functions.php line 145(ish)[/edit]

That did the job Robert, same with the search box, it was being called between the cache tags.

 

Is it possible to have the sub categories split into half to save scrolling down the page to see the bottom half? I have a lot of sub categories, only customers with a scroll in the mouse would be able to see all the sub categories, anyone who used the scroll bar on the right to scroll down would see the sub category dissapear.

Hi Robert

 

Some more feedback for you, the menu apears on top of images, but it does not apear over flash movies.

If there is a flash movie beside the pop out menu, the menu gets squashed.

Robert,

Thanks for contribution, I like it pretty much.

I have some minor problems though, I want you to know about them, so probably you can fix them or probably I did something wrong and you can direct me a bit.

First one is that when I use STS mode (and generally I always use it), there are no small pictures in a categories menu. When STS is off, I can see them fine.

Second one is that when menu line is pretty close to bottom of a screen I cannot see bottom lines of pop-up menu, they are lower than edge of a screen. I'm not sure if you can do it, but it would be better if in that case pop-up menu will open up, not down (like usual correct behavior of pop-up menu).

Thank you for any help.

As it states in the instructions .. the XML features (RSS - XML sitemaps) are PHP5 only.

Is it possible to have the sub categories split into two or three boxes across the page rather than one full sub category list? (50 sub categories)

 

I enabled the seo pop out menu, but soon had a customer send me an email he was unable to browse the full sub categorys becuase it went off the bottom of the page, when he tried to scroll down, the menu dissapeared.

 

Only customers with a scroll wheel in their mouse would be able to see all the sub categories in the SEO pop out menu since that doesnt invole leaving the menu.

 

The seo pop out menu apears on top of images, but it does not apear over flash movies.

If there is a flash movie beside the pop out menu, the seo pop out menu gets squashed and is unreadable.

Hi,

 

I am trying to get the contribution to work. I have followed the instructions and the problem that i am getting is that as soon as i swtch it on in admin my categories are already maximised rather than appearing when i hover the mouse over one. After following the instructions, the first error i got was the categories.ser error ( Warning: fopen(1_categories.ser) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/httpd/vhosts/rail-order.co.uk/httpdocs/includes/functions/fwr_cat_functions.php on line 118

Couldn't fopen _categories.ser.ser)

 

This happens when the cache path is set to DIR_FS_CACHE but the website works if i change that to false. I'm not sure if this is causing my problems.

 

When the menus work, do they kind of look like this, http://www.the-bed-shop.com/

 

Thanks

 

Rich

If the categories are already maximised then you perhaps haven't added the code in the <head> of the page .. e.g. in index.php

Hey thanks for the quick reply!

 

I've just checked the index.php file under the root, and the code <?php

if ( defined('FWR_SUCKERTREE_MENU_ON') && FWR_SUCKERTREE_MENU_ON === 'true' )

echo '<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="fwr_suckertree_css_menu.php" />';

?> is present.

 

I've turned the menu on now, www.rail-order.co.uk

 

It dosen't even show the fwr_arrow.gif files so i'm guessing something might be wrong. I'm pretty sure that no other contributions have been done on the menus in the past which might have conflicted with this contribution.

 

Any ideas? :lol:

On another note, STS is installed. Should that make a difference?
