Product Listing Enhancements, Thumbnails & Manufacturer Headings

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the millionth time, but once again, this seems to be above my head. Is it possible for you to give me an idea of what to do to make this work?

 

Sue

 

 

I`m sorry, it must be me but I don't know how to make that simpler!!

 

You could try

CSS Tuition http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/learning

 

Regarding filenames you could make this change, then all filenames will be valid, but uploaded filenames may vary from the original, it would avoid issue with client errors though.

 

open admin/includes/classes/upload.php

 

find (120):

 

  	$this->filename = $filename;

replace with:

 

  	$this->filename = strtolower(preg_replace(array('/[^\w.-]/i','/(_)\1+/'),'_',$filename));

Thanks for the file name code - I will give that a try.

 

Regarding the quote below, I have tried to change the numbers, 8 an 0.9 but it had no effect on the results. My question is what needs to be changed in the coding - if the numbers, what is the range of the possible numbers.

 

 

in page-header-inc.htc adjust

margin-left:-<?php echo (int)(IMAGE_TTIP_WIDTH/8) ?>px;for firefox and

 

margin-left:-<?php echo (int)(IMAGE_TTIP_WIDTH*0.9) ?>px;for IE

Did you ensure you uploaded after change?

 

Try bigger changes, the result is rounded to whole numbers, so small changes may have no effect.

Thanks for this tidbit! I tested it and it appears it adds the an underscore where the was a space in the image name - great and simple addition!!!

I saw that Marker did a previous post mentioning 'Free Shipping Image'. Is there a free shipping icon with this contrib?

 

If not please lead me to where I can set this up if anyone knows.

 

Thanks,

no-image.jpg should go in your images folder, as defined in DIR_WS_IMAGES in configure.php

 

If you just get red X try right clicking -> properties, see what the file path is.

 

The other possibility is corrupt file, if you ftp the file in the wrong transfer mode you will corrupt the file, ensure you set your ftp transfer mode to automatic.

thanks for the quick reply. i'm working locally for now, so no ftp issues, and my file path is fine because all other images show up no prob. when i use firebug to test the page, it shows the image as

<img src="images/">

. so, no image is being input. i've tried with and without Image Required.

 

i suppose i can just go into my file and replace all NULL images with no-image.jpg, but i thought the point was not having to. am i missing something in configuration? have i misinterpreted this function? thanks again!

are you saying u have a blank image where-ever you have no product image!!

 

The function checks if the file refered to in the dbase exists, if it does, display it, otherwise the no-image.jpg

 

the line resonsible is:

 

$image = (file_exists(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $listing['products_image']) ? $listing['products_image'] : 'no-image.jpg');  

 

But if you have the product image set to some text, ie NULL what the upload function will do is create a empty file called NULL in images & as that file exists.... (you could fill with 'no-image.jpg' instead)

exactly, i got a non image. indeed the DB default in NULL when there is no image defined...so you're saying that's what's jamming me up? i did go ahead and replace all instances of NULL with no-image.jpg...now i'm having trouble with Easy Populate that either wants to recognize the images or the descriptions but not both. but that's another problem for another forum another time.

 

thanks for your help and your contrib.

just emptied db of all product image instances of NULL and redefined field as Not Null, that didn't work either.

i double checked the line of code, looks good.

$image = (file_exists(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $listing['products_image']) ? $listing['products_image'] : 'no-image.jpg');

but the text not null will have the same effect!

 

look in your images folder with ftp, delete anything with a size of 0

i don't follow. emptying the db table products_image and changing the cell structure to Not Null (NULL > Not Null) means the Null is no longer the default (Default > ), and the cell's empty rather than containing the text "NULL". so i had no text, no image, and still no-image.jpg wasn't showing up. although i don't get the logic i did check my images folder and there are no images with a size of 0.

 

i ended up just filling in "no-image.jpg" in products_image which works just as well, but would have been cool to not have to.

 

again, i'm developing the site locally so i have no ftp issues.

thnx,

Then it sounds like the php on your pc is not behaving normally, that does happen sometimes, I seen too many cases when people strugled, but as soon as they uploaded to a 'real' server their issues vanished.

 

This issue is especially true of the CAPTCHA type add-ons.

 

Also windows is a poor choice of server, as you will see when you move to a linux server.

Hello Sam,

 

I have installed this contribution, but I have a question about it. I have several products which have product options but the product options don't show on the product listing page no matter what I put in on the admin configuration. Is there a possibility to be able to show and immediately add the product options in the product listing? Also I would like to add the product quantity box to the product info page so customers can change the quantity there as well. I hope you can help me with this.

 

Regards,

 

Evelien

Hi Sam,

 

Yes I have read the doc. I have enabled the buy now button and put diplay product options on true so I don't know why the attributes are not showing in the product listing page.

 

For the addon yes I have seen that one but I would like to have the same quantity box as on the product listing page.

 

 

Best regards,

 

Evelien

Yes the products all have stock and a price and attributes attached to them

(on the product info page the product attributes do show up but just not on the product listing page)

perhaps you have a error in your index.php, do you see the values for stock & price in the listing?

 

a link would help.

I see u have no quantity box either!!

 

What version osC is the store?

 

Are you missing the setting Product Quantities In Shopping Cart in admin->max values, or is it set to zero?

 

if so this change would circumvent that

 

in product_listing.php find :

 

$pstock = min(tep_get_products_stock($products_id),MAX_QTY_IN_CART); $qbox = ($pstock && $p_price != 0);

replace with:

 

$max_qty = is_numeric(MAX_QTY_IN_CART) ? MAX_QTY_IN_CART : 10;
    $pstock = min(tep_get_products_stock($products_id),$max_qty); $qbox = ($pstock && $p_price != 0);
