Recommended Posts

pease read the inculded text file for details on use & settings

 

 

I think if i could set the heights rather then the widths it would look neater, but in the admin setting i can only choose widths??

 

just alter the code to suite!!

Undistorted image here

 

Distorted here

 

Yes, only image width is set to stop image getting distorted.

 

If you don`t care about distortion (your customers might!!)

 

to set both, in produc_listing.php find (295):

 

$image = (!$grid && $column_list[0] == 'PRODUCT_LIST_IMAGE' ? '<br>' : '') . $link . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $image, ($addimages ? (tep_not_null($selected_image['images_description']) ? $selected_image['images_description'] : (tep_not_null($selected_image['products_image_description']) ? $selected_image['products_image_description'] : $products['products_name'])) : $products['products_name']), PRODUCT_IMAGE_WIDTH, '') . '</a>' . '<br>';

 

Replace with:

 

$image = (!$grid && $column_list[0] == 'PRODUCT_LIST_IMAGE' ? '<br>' : '') . $link . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $image, ($addimages ? (tep_not_null($selected_image['images_description']) ? $selected_image['images_description'] : (tep_not_null($selected_image['products_image_description']) ? $selected_image['products_image_description'] : $products['products_name'])) : $products['products_name']), SMALL_IMAGE_WIDTH, SMALL_IMAGE_HEIGHT) . '</a>' . '<br>';

 

If you do care, in admin set SMALL_IMAGE_HEIGHT to blank (nothing).

 

 

ok well i looked through your 44 pages post and found that, but i cant find the produc_listing.php, was it meant to be 'product_listing.php'?

 

and that code isnt in the 'product_listing.php', well i couldn't find it.

 

and in the admin settings i have played about with the settings and the hieghts of the boxes etc, but its not the same as my first page! i want the product_listing page to look like this.... http://www.neildavison.co.uk/catalog/

 

i just cant change the heights of the images!

 

please tell me how to do it!

 

Neil

line 295

yeah ive changed the Product Listing Style to thumbnails in grid, thats how i want it to look.

 

i also went to line 295 and changed

: $products['products_name']), PRODUCT_IMAGE_WIDTH, '')

to

: $products['products_name']), PRODUCT_IMAGE_HEIGHT, '')

 

but the images were their original size.

 

I still dont know how to get all thumbnails in the grid to be the same height.

 

when i highlight the grid i can see that there are blank lines above and below each product image, im asuming these are where other info would be, but i've disabled it, is there a way to get rid of these spaces so it looks neater?

 

** UPDATE**

I managed to remove the blank line under each product by cutting out two line on line 296:-

 

// $buypic = (LISTING_BUTTON == 'buy now' ? 'button_in_cart.gif' : 'button_buy_now.gif');

// $button = (LISTING_BUTTON != 'none' && PRODUCT_LIST_BUY_NOW ? (LISTING_BUTTON == 'buy now & details' ? '<br><a href="' .

 

I just need to get rid of the line ABOVE the product and change the images to all be the same height, not width.

 

I'd greatly appreciate your help please.

 

 

Neil

its ok, done it!!

 

looked at the line 295 again, and added SMALL_IMAGE_WIDTH, SMALL_IMAGE_HEIGHT) where PRODUCT_IMAGE_WIDTH was.

 

but id still like to know how to get rid of the blank line ABOVE each product please.

 

 

and also how do i change the numbers in the drop down menu for the number of images shown on the page at once, i'd rather it went 10, 20, 30..., show all?

Thanks for the quick response. I had to reinstall my backups.

 

Any good suggestions on how to uncorrupt the dbase as it is still very empty.

 

Thanks.

Does it make a difference that my dbase name, dbase user, dbase host are different than the domain name?

Correct table should be osc_configuration_group. Any suggestions on the mysql query?

 

Or I am even more lost and confused than I feel.

I am using v2.2 ms2. I believe the problem is due to web host provider setup of dbase as osc_configuration and not as plain configuration. Guessing, in product_listing_setup.php, the following line needs to be changed??

 

$chk_query = tep_db_query("select configuration_group_id from configuration_group where configuration_group_title = 'Product Listing'");

 

Bold to osc_configuration_group or

Underline to osc_configuration_group_id or

Change Both??

 

Thanks for your help.

Hello Sam,

 

Thanks for the awesome contribution. For some reason in my configuration there is no way to choose how many products show per page, right now on my site there's just the basic list that gives customers the option to choose from 20, 40, 60 etc products per page. I've tried re-running the setup and nothing seems to do it. Is there a way I can just go in and manually change the code so that it only shows say 9 per page?

 

Any advice would be great

if you read the doc the answer is there, its a pre-existing setting, max values -> search results

Hello,

 

I want to know how is it possible that we can show thumbnail and short description once on a top of product list then the name quantity price and buy now button in a loop ..

 

Because some products have same image and description only we can show the price with no of quantity they buy.

 

 

 

Product Image --------------------------------- Short Description ------------------------

 

 

Product Name | Quantity | Price | Bonus | Buy Now

 

Product Name | Quantity | Price | Bonus | Buy Now

 

Product Name | Quantity | Price | Bonus | Buy Now

 

Product Name | Quantity | Price | Bonus | Buy Now

 

Product Name | Quantity | Price | Bonus | Buy Now

 

---------------

Thanks
