Easily Add New Pages

Recommended Posts

When I created new pages, I did the following.

 

I copied header.php (because the links were changing). Instead of the categories, I wanted to display customer service topics (about us, returns, etc.). I named the page header_information.php.

 

I used the same coding structure for the links in header_information.php. For example: <span class=ch1></span><a href=<?=tep_href_link('about_us.php')?> class=ch4>Returns & Replacements</a>

 

I then copied the privacy page and named it customer_service.php. I made modifications including pointing to the new header page for customer service - header_information.php.

 

The sessions seem to remain entact as I click from one Customer Service section to another as well as back to the catalog. Does this sound alright or am I setting myself up for problems in the future?

Burt, You just made my day!!!

Thank u so much for you easy, well explained steps for adding a new page!

God bless you!

Thanks A LOT! :)

 

 

Your way is good, but better (IMO):

Download the following files:

catalog/conditions.php

catalog/includes/languages/english/conditions.php

Save them (on your Hard Drive as):

catalog/template.php

catalog/includes/languages/english/template.php

When you want a new page:

Open catalog/template.php (on your HD) and change the following:

require(DIR_WS_LANGUAGES . $language . '/' . FILENAME_CONDITIONS);
 $breadcrumb->add(NAVBAR_TITLE, tep_href_link(FILENAME_CONDITIONS, '', 'NONSSL'));

To:

require(DIR_WS_LANGUAGES . $language . '/' . FILENAME_NEW_PAGE);
 $breadcrumb->add(NAVBAR_TITLE, tep_href_link(FILENAME_NEW_PAGE, '', 'NONSSL'));

where NEW_PAGE is the name of your new page.

eg if you wanted a page called "about_us.php" the code would be:

require(DIR_WS_LANGUAGES . $language . '/' . FILENAME_ABOUT_US);
 $breadcrumb->add(NAVBAR_TITLE, tep_href_link(FILENAME_ABOUT_US, '', 'NONSSL'));

Save and Upload both:

catalog/template.php

catalog/includes/languages/english/template.php

to their respective places on the live server, and then rename them BOTH to whatever, in the example: about_us.php

Set CHMOD 777 on your newly created and renamed:

catalog/includes/languages/english/about_us.php

Download, and open up application_top.php and add the following:

// New page about_us.php

define('FILENAME_ABOUT_US', 'about_us.php');

Save and upload includes/application_top.php

Now go Admin > Tools > Define Languages > about_us.php

Done. It sounds complicated but once you get the hang of it, it takes no longer than 2 minutes. It maintains the proper Osc structure.

OOOops! I'm having one small problem!

 

I followed "Burt's" steps to add a new page and successfully added about.php everything works fine except that everytime i go to my new page "about.php", then I go to the "shopping cart page", i find it empty, even if I had some products in it!!

 

Does anyone has a solution for this problem?

 

Thanks,

Hello. I have a site built using the original STS contribution (version 1.0.4). I assume because of the significant changes to STS since then, that this contribution will not work.

 

Could someone, however, describe how to add additional pages (e.g. an "About Us" page) to an STS v1 site?

 

I was going to add new pages as regular (non-oscommerce) pages, but need to have the Shopping Cart link on them.

 

Thanks!

There's a new page mod out there too, that was helpful in getting my own custom pages done.

One thing to remember! : Dont forget to add in any new code from previous modules that you've installed.

Example: I have Linda's header tag controller, as well as the Thema option - both mods require you add another piece of php code.

I've taken and saved a generic page with the new code in it. Once i'm done modding it, i just save them as something else and upload to /catalog and /catalog/includes/languages/english.

 

 

 

I can't seen to find the new page mod, any sugestions?

 

Thank you in advance

I've followed the instructions as best i could,... :-

 

I would like to make an Example / Photo Gallery Page for pictures of the work that i've done and one day i hope to be able to add a page #2 and page #3 and so on.

 

Just on that first page they show Many,... Many Examples and More Examples for the people who have asked questions and then there are better written Examples with shorter code. I'm just going to tell you know,... I'm Confused! :( :'(

 

So far i've created a new folder just to keep everything separate and organized and i've downloaded the following files:

 

/shop/conditions.php

/shop/includes/languages/english/conditions.php

/shop/includes/application_top.php

/shop/includes/languages/english.php

 

 

I've renamed "/shop/conditions.php" to "/shop/gallery.php"

 

On line 15 & 17 I've renamed

 

CODE

 

require('includes/application_top.php');

 require(DIR_WS_LANGUAGES . $language . '/' . FILENAME_CONDITIONS);

 $breadcrumb->add(NAVBAR_TITLE, tep_href_link(FILENAME_CONDITIONS));

 

To:

 

CODE

 

require('includes/application_top.php');

 require(DIR_WS_LANGUAGES . $language . '/' . FILENAME_GALLERY);

 $breadcrumb->add(NAVBAR_TITLE, tep_href_link(FILENAME_GALLERY));

 

I then renamed /shop/includes/languages/english/conditions.php file to /shop/includes/languages/english/gallery.php

 

 

But,... Post #2 in that thread never says what to do with the file /shop/includes/languages/english/gallery.php file.

 

So, I changed lines 13 & 14 from:

 

define('NAVBAR_TITLE', 'Conditions of Use');
define('HEADING_TITLE', 'Conditions of Use');

 

To

 

define('NAVBAR_TITLE', 'Welcome to our Photo Gallery');
define('HEADING_TITLE', 'Welcome to our Photo Gallery');

 

 

Is that Correct?

 

Now for the file /shop/includes/application_top.php

 

Where is the best place to add this code:

// New page gallery.php

define('FILENAME_GALLERY', 'gallery.php');

 

The instructions say just to add it to the file, save it and upload it but i know from experence that you "Just" can't "Add It" anywhere inside the file so,... Wheres the best place to insert this code in to that file?

 

 

Now for the /shop/includes/languages/english.php file.

 

Do i find this code starting on line 122

 

// information box text in includes/boxes/information.php
define('BOX_HEADING_INFORMATION', 'Information');
define('BOX_INFORMATION_PRIVACY', 'Privacy Notice');
define('BOX_INFORMATION_CONDITIONS', 'Conditions of Use');
define('BOX_INFORMATION_SHIPPING', 'Shipping & Exchanges');

 

 

As you can see i've changed Shipping & Returns to Shipping & Exchanges.

 

But anyway,... Is this the code to write to have it in the "Information Box" below:

define('BOX_INFORMATION_GALLERY', 'Photo Gallery');

 

Directly under this code on line 122

 

// information box text in includes/boxes/information.php
define('BOX_HEADING_INFORMATION', 'Information');
define('BOX_INFORMATION_PRIVACY', 'Privacy Notice');
define('BOX_INFORMATION_CONDITIONS', 'Conditions of Use');
define('BOX_INFORMATION_SHIPPING', 'Shipping & Exchanges');
define('BOX_INFORMATION_CONTACT', 'Contact Us');
define('BOX_INFORMATION_GALLERY', 'Photo Gallery');

 

I have follow the code instructions and i Cannot Get Photo Gallery link to be displayed under or in the Information Box. Any Suggestions as to why it's not showing up in that box? If i type the name is directly like DOMAINNAME.COM/shop/gallery.php the page shows up and looks fine.

 

 

Just a couple more questions please,...

What is the code to have the Photo Gallery Link in it's own Box directly under the Information Box and have the Box named "Other Interest"?

 

 

Once i get this firat main page created, How do i go about adding a 2nd or 3rd or 4th page and so on?

 

1 Last Question please,...

 

Is there a Better way of going about and doing this instead of the way i've described above?

 

I wished they would have added some sort of option to be able to just add pages like this from the Admin, How could they not think that people wouldnt want to be adding more pages to their site,... :-

 

 

I really hope i havent confused you and i really appreciate your help in helping me solving this.

 

Thanks

RCHP.

I figured out why it wasnt showing up in the Information Box.

 

I needed to add the command to the information.php file.

 

$info_box_contents = array();
$info_box_contents[] = array('text' => '<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRIVACY) . '">' . BOX_INFORMATION_GALLERY . '</a><br>' .
									 '<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_SHIPPING) . '">' . BOX_INFORMATION_SHIPPING . '</a><br>' .
									 '<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRIVACY) . '">' . BOX_INFORMATION_PRIVACY . '</a><br>' .
	   '<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_CONDITIONS) . '">' . BOX_INFORMATION_CONDITIONS . '</a><br>' .
									 '<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_CONTACT_US) . '">' . BOX_INFORMATION_CONTACT . '</a>');

 

 

Now that i've gotten it to show up i just need my other questions answered please.

Thanks burt,

This one work perfect for me!

I have use v2.2 RC1

 

Your way is good, but better (IMO):

Download the following files:

catalog/conditions.php

catalog/includes/languages/english/conditions.php

Save them (on your Hard Drive as):

catalog/template.php

catalog/includes/languages/english/template.php

When you want a new page:

Open catalog/template.php (on your HD) and change the following:

require(DIR_WS_LANGUAGES . $language . '/' . FILENAME_CONDITIONS);
 $breadcrumb->add(NAVBAR_TITLE, tep_href_link(FILENAME_CONDITIONS, '', 'NONSSL'));

To:

require(DIR_WS_LANGUAGES . $language . '/' . FILENAME_NEW_PAGE);
 $breadcrumb->add(NAVBAR_TITLE, tep_href_link(FILENAME_NEW_PAGE, '', 'NONSSL'));

where NEW_PAGE is the name of your new page.

eg if you wanted a page called "about_us.php" the code would be:

require(DIR_WS_LANGUAGES . $language . '/' . FILENAME_ABOUT_US);
 $breadcrumb->add(NAVBAR_TITLE, tep_href_link(FILENAME_ABOUT_US, '', 'NONSSL'));

Save and Upload both:

catalog/template.php

catalog/includes/languages/english/template.php

to their respective places on the live server, and then rename them BOTH to whatever, in the example: about_us.php

Set CHMOD 777 on your newly created and renamed:

catalog/includes/languages/english/about_us.php

Download, and open up application_top.php and add the following:

// New page about_us.php

define('FILENAME_ABOUT_US', 'about_us.php');

Save and upload includes/application_top.php

Now go Admin > Tools > Define Languages > about_us.php

Done. It sounds complicated but once you get the hang of it, it takes no longer than 2 minutes. It maintains the proper Osc structure.

Thanks burt,

This one work perfect for me!

I have use v2.2 RC1

This installation method did not work for me. I got there error Fatal error: Call to a member function add_current_page() on a non-object in /home/thebest4/public_html/mysite/includes/application_top.php on line 312

 

I did everything in the instruction. Could things like writing in caps or not, or the placement of the code on the pages make a difference?

It looks to my like I need to add something one more place, but where?

The cause of the error is that rc2 does not use the NONSSL')); in $breadcrumb->add(NAVBAR_TITLE, tep_href_link(FILENAME_ABOUT_US, '', 'NONSSL'));

You also need to include the file in english.php something like define('FILENAME_ASSET_RECOVERY', 'asset_recovery.php');

My next question..

How do I add these pages to my menu?

 

I am frustrated a bit but I know once I get it, it will not be hard the next time.

hello,

 

i have added a few pages already to my site, but this next one is giving me a lot of problems.

 

i want to add a page that is only available when a person is logged in. i looked at the index.php page

 

where it says hello guest-- but if oyu are logged in--- it changes to see new products.

 

 

somthing like that, but i am not sure where that code is -- for non logins it will say you need to be logged in to see this page

and link to login

 

but if there logged in show the page as inteneded.

 

any suggestions?????

 

thanks

The generic test for "is logged in? then action" goes like this:

 

<?php
 if ( !tep_session_is_registered('customer_id') ) {
// code for NON-LOGGED-IN goes here
 } else {
// code for LOGGED-IN goes here
 }
?>


If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.
