Graphical Borders

Recommended Posts

This is a old package but I`m starting this support thread as there aint one.

 

New Install:

 

Easy Graphical Borders

 

The previous install (I havent gone through them all) makes changes to many files & adds loads of extra code to change some of the info box content, adding loads of extra sql queries in the process, this seems rather OTT to me, what you want is the pretty boxes, so this install gives you that with only 3 files to modify! If you want more use an older install.

 

Example page view included in the package.

Nice one Spooks.

 

How come it was uploaded 4 times. I waiting for it to download so I can look at it.

 

I have the old one installed and found that the various lightbox type addons interferred with the graphivcal borders in FF.

 

Ah, finally downloaded.

 

Will check it out shortly.

 

Well, I guess I won't check it out yet, I can't unzip it.

Someone asked about changing the colour of the default shaded images.

 

You can modify the hue of the the images with photoshop.

 

Convert to rgb

 

Use colour variations to give image a hue.

 

Use replace colour to set hue.

I just installed easy, I had the other contribution installed but removed it because if there wasn’t a review for a product the box would

display the last info box from column left. Testing this on localhost.

I have the same problem with this one, any ideas?

Thats an issue with your setup, Easy Graphical Borders does not change status or position of anything, it only redefines how box borders are displayed.

 

Check the content of your left & right columns

Greetings,

 

I just installed latest version of this mod. All worked great except it malformed my index.php file but product pages were fine. Index.php loaded but the tables were messy. Any ideas of this bug ?

 

Thanks All,

Thanks for the fast reply Sam.

 

I setup a stock OSC no mods and have the same problem, last info box shows in heading of the product review if no review is present.

I`ll check the install, I have it applied to vanilla MS2 & its fine, maybe I've missed something out in the install instructions.

I`ve tested install on a vanilla rc2a and all was fine apart from a retained title, fixed that bug & uploaded new version.

 

 

Now tested on PHP 4 & 5, SQL 4 & 5, osC 2.2 ms2, rc1 & rc2a

I installed and everything was perfect except on productinfo.php pages I lost the column_right & the footer.

Any ideas?

This works by wrapping boxes in a table thats then styled. in osC you could modify pages & call a header or box several times with impunity, but with this if you call

new contentBox($contents)

but did`nt have first

new contentBoxHeading($contents)

your page is messed, as you closed a table you did'nt open.

 

It does allow a fix for some cases you could replace a

new contentBox($info_box_contents)

with

new noborderBox($info_box_contents)

Don't quite understand.

 

In what file would I find

new contentBox($info_box_contents)
to make the above fix?

I was giving an example you may not be using that specific one, could be any of the boxes class.

 

As your problem is with product_info.php look there.

i changed new contentBox($info_box_contents);

to

new noborderBox($info_box_contents);

 

and it solved my main page table problem! But I soon as I click on one category you see my right column disapear! what can I do for that doctor?

Its likely you have conflicting table elements, try wrapping your call in an element, like:

 

echo '<tr><td>';

new productListingBox($info_box_contents);

echo '</td></tr>';

Hey Sam,

 

Just for my clarification...

 

Your new version only wraps the infoboxes (in column left & right) with graphics?

 

If I want to wrap say; New Products for 'Month', Customers who bought this product also purchased, Other Products You Might Like, etc... (basically the center boxes/tables) then I would have to install possibly v2.1?

 

Would you happen to know if the Product Listing box/table gets wrapped with any of the versions?

 

Sorry for so many questions. I'm just getting so tired of installing, uninstalling contribution versions looking for the correct ones. Thought maybe you could point me in the right direction with this one. ;)

 

Any help would be appreciated. :)

If your product listing box uses the producting listing info box class then it should get the new style, if there are any that dont you can still do it.

 

 

change to class call, say

 

 

new contentBox($info_box_contents)

 

to

 

mws_boxHeader ()

new noborderBox($info_box_contents)

mws_boxFooter()

 

the older versions do this in various places, but also add loads of other stuff you dont need.
