just so you can see.. here is my css from your contribution.. where ever it defines a text align, it says center, so i am unsure as to where to change this.

 

/*product listing thumbnails*/
infoBoxProducts {
 text-align: center;
 border: solid 1px #999999; 
 font-family: Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;
 font-size: 10px;
 font-weight: normal;
 background-color: transparent;
 color: #333333;
 margin-bottom:-8px;
}
infoBoxProducts a {
 color: #333333;
}
TD.infoBoxGrid {
 font-family: Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;
 font-size: 10px;
 border: 1px;
 border-style: solid;
 border-color: #b6b7cb;
 border-spacing: 1px;
}
/* set pos buy/details button on list */
img.buy_now {  
 margin-bottom:10px;
} 
/* set pos buy/details button on thumbnail */
img.thm_buy_now {
 margin-bottom:-3px;
} 
/* set style buy/details seperator thumbnail */
buy_now {
 font-weight: bold;
font-size: 18px;
color: #999999;
} 
infoBoxList {
border: ridge 4px #faf0e6;
border-collapse: collapse;
background-color: #000000;
}
thumbcontent {
 font-family: Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;
 font-size: 10px;
 color:#666666;
 text-align:center;
}
TD.noborderbox {
 font-family: Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;
 font-size: 10px;
  background-color: #000000;
}

 

I thought maybe it was in the box class, but i am not good at reading those classes.

My store is so customised that I'm scared to add the files in! Is there a way to manually edit each file? Including the ones added? I really don't want to mess up my store right now!

 

Thanks!

Correction, I just added it! It worked out semi-ok, except for on my index page... my new products aren't showing, only one product shows. Plus, which contrib do I use for the short descriptions please?

 

thanks as always

That is odd that it changed the quantity of new products listing.. maybe check you admin settings to see if there is a default setting that got changed.

 

As for the short descriptions, he added a link right in the contribution description for it.. its kinda easy to add..

 

Just a little note, if you are ever worried about uploading a completely new file, you can use a comparisson program like WinMerge(for windows users) or Diffmerge (for mac) they basically show you the files side by side and highlight where there are differences... you will see differennces on both sides, but you just want to change where it shows there is something on the contribution page that your page doesnt have, you dont really want to take anything out unless it the contribution code replaces your existing code, and even then you have to be careful because there might be other contribution's coding in that code..

 

The more contributions you add, the more difficult it is going to be to add others, but it is doable, and it teaches you more and more about coding

Thanks for the suggestions! I'll defo look into that. Ok, from looking into stuff a lil deeper, I figured something out. The new products listing shows products ONLY from the very first category. hmmm... I'll have to work around it I guess... I'll post what I find...

I can't see why its not centering, I`ve tested on a test server & cannot reproduce, it always centers.

 

You could try this change:

 

(product_listing.php)

 

line 341:

 

'params' => $style . ' width="'.(PRODUCTS_PER_ROW ? (100/PRODUCTS_PER_ROW) : '').'%" valign="top"',

 

change to:

 

'params' => $style . ' width="'.(PRODUCTS_PER_ROW ? (100/PRODUCTS_PER_ROW) : '').'%" align="center" valign="top"',

 

have my doubts though.

If you check the instructions it state that a date limit is added & the code is commented, if you alter that you will get more.

hmm i made that change and still nothing. i guess i could just use the file name as the product name and hide the model> That is not impossible for me to do...

 

It still shows as aligned left though.. Odd.. atleast i dont feel like an idiot for not being able to do it!!!

 

btw, i am still waiting on osc moderators to help me get a sponsorship in your name

There is one other thing to try:

 

find(320):

 

$display .= $model;

 

replace with:

 

$display .= '<table summary="" width="100%" ><tr><td class="thumbcontent">'.$model.'</td></tr></table>';

 

Also check your model fields don't contain trailing spaces.

Hi Sam,

 

I'm having a little trouble with this module. I have added the appropriate text and files as listed in the .txt file included with the download.

I did the intall and configured my settings, but neither my product nor the listing box show up on my index page.

 

I only have one product, no categories, and no manufacturers.

 

I'm suspicious that the problem is not with the product listing module, but with the product itself because nothing appeared in the standard "New products for September" list either.

 

Any help on this would be great! Thanks!

 

Chad

This is entirly due to the queries applied in index.php, they require that products are within categories, if you have no categories you will get no product listing, also search will not work.

 

Either modify index.php & search pages to correct this, or, much simpler, put your products in categories.

Thanks Sam,

 

I did put the product into a category, but I still get nothing. :(

Oooops, I`m blind!!!

 

It is your css, you have no style applied, thats why!!!

 

You have:

 

infoBoxProducts {

text-align: center;

border: solid 1px #999999;

font-family: Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;

font-size: 10px;

font-weight: normal;

background-color: transparent;

color: #333333;

margin-bottom:-8px;

}

 

etc

 

it should be:

 

.infoBoxProducts {

text-align: center;

border: solid 1px #999999;

font-family: Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;

font-size: 10px;

font-weight: normal;

background-color: transparent;

color: #333333;

margin-bottom:-8px;

}

 

That full stop is imperitive!!

 

Check the rest of your css as well

 

;)

What does it show when you view that category?

 

 

It shows the product in the category but not on the main page.

 

I tried installing this mod into a fresh (unmodified version) of osCommerce on a test site I have. It does the same thing. It will show the product on the categories page, but not on the main page.

 

http://respsimplified.com/html//catalog/

 

I would expect the box to show up under "Welcome Guest! Would you like to log yourself in? Or would you prefer to create an account?"

 

But nothing.

Thats not what you said to start, you said no product listing at all.

 

Have you read the section in the instructions that says:

 

 

You can also apply the thumbnail display to the new_products module & products_new page. NOTE: These files have an extra date function, original will just list product to set limit, this adds a max age for product (default is 60days) to change edit the commented line.

 

 

And have you edited accordingly??
