Can someone please tell me how to get rid of the ??-?? (in black diamonds) between the category and product text on the slideshow??!! I really love this contribution but the diamonds must G-O! :'(

 

I know that you have a solution, PennyP, but I'd like to add something that maybe useful for everybody.

 

The original code of /catalog/includes/modules/product_cycle_slideshow.php contains (in three places) the PHP functions

htmlspecialchars() and html_entity_decode().

 

The PHP manual says about these functions:

 

Description

string html_entity_decode ( string $string [, int $quote_style = ENT_COMPAT [, string $charset = 'UTF-8' ]] )

html_entity_decode() is the opposite of htmlentities() in that it converts all HTML entities to their applicable characters from string.

and

 

Description

 

string htmlspecialchars ( string $string [, int $flags = ENT_COMPAT [, string $charset [, bool $double_encode = true ]]] )

Certain characters have special significance in HTML, and should be represented by HTML entities if they are to preserve their meanings. This function returns a string with some of these conversions made; the translations made are those most useful for everyday web programming. If you require all HTML character entities to be translated, use htmlentities() instead.

 

This function is useful in preventing user-supplied text from containing HTML markup, such as in a message board or guest book application.

 

As you can see, both htmlspecialchars() and html_entity_decode() have three parameters


  •  
  • The string to work on $string,
  • A flag to indicate the way it works ($flags and $quote_style)
  • The character set it is supposed to work with: $charset.

 

The functions allow us to use specify any character set.

So, with these functions, we can use "UTF-8", "ISO-8859-1", or whatever is valid.

 

But there is an even better solution.

The character set, that your OsCommerce works with, is registered in the configurable parameter CHARSET.

The parameter CHARSET is used in the header of every OsC HTML-file, in this way:

 

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=<?php echo CHARSET; ?>">

 

We can use this parameter in the Product Cycle Slideshow, like this:

 

$data2 =  html_entity_decode($data1,  ENT_COMPAT,  CHARSET);      
$data3 =  htmlspecialchars($data2,  ENT_COMPAT,  CHARSET); 

 

Add CHARSET parameter too solve character set problems

Using this knowledge, we can correct the three lines, that contain these functions, in such a way, that these lines of code will not cause anymore problems with character sets in any OsC implementation anywhere.

 

 

The above text was the better part of my former (deleted) messages. I hope this is useful for someone.

Dear friends,

 

Please take a look at my alternative for product_cycle_slideshow.php.

Feel free to comment.

 

If some of you think it is useful, I will add my thing to the add-on-site.

 

These files I changed:

  • product_cycle_slideshow.php
  • stylesheet.css (addition)
  • index.php (addition)
  • Install.sql

The files are published below.

For details, please read my comments in the files.

 


  • Change log
  • Some conflicts and incompatibilities (W3C, Ultimate Search Optimized URL's 5) are solved.
  • Image size variables and 'Display Boxes' are now controllable via admin.
  • An on/off switch now exists in admin and code for index.php is altered to allow for switching the PCS on and off.
  • The code is more expendable. It allows for adding more types of products to display in the PCS.
  • Changed the selected image to display: show the image p.products_image_med if that IS NOT NULL

 

Unsolved issue

I did not yet find a solution to get the image description where it belongs (between the tags <div id="PCS1Output" class="PCSOutput"></div>)

If you know how that should be done, please help?

 

The result can be seen at

Attached is a screenshot of the admin:

Here is my version of product_cycle_slideshow.php

20110714 Denkster Move classes for box sizes from stylesheet.css to here, to be able to control them with variables. 
                  Added title="  " attribute to image tag

Dear friends,

 

Please take a look at my alternative for product_cycle_slideshow.php.

Feel free to comment.

 

If some of you think it is useful, I will add my thing to the add-on-site.

I need to tell you, one of the ideas I used comes from Korben83:

http://forums.oscommerce.com/topic/315453-products-cycle-slideshow/page__view__findpost__p__1525821

 

Thanks

For anyone looking for a solution to this problem, it was the encoding. I emailed my hosting company with my concerns and this is how they responded. "PHP was generating your pages with a UTF-8 character set and the characters in your code were in a different charset. I edited your php.ini and modified your default charset to Western ISO-8859-1. This seems to have caused the browser to display the characters correctly."

 

Hope this helps some of you!

Ciao,

Penny :P

 

 

Another solution is to remove all " " in bm_product_cycle_slideshow.php file and replace it with a new line "</br>" after the </b>

 

I had the same problem and that worked for me.

Fantastic add-on! However (why is there always one?).....

 

I can only get it to work on the left of right side (as can be selected in the control panel). But I'd like this one to replace the 'New Products for...' on my frontpage and category pages.

 

I know I have to replace or modify the <?php include(DIR_WS_MODULES . FILENAME_NEW_PRODUCTS); ?> statement in the index.php multiple times to get that effect and with some effort I can make it switched on/off depending on the true/false value but what I can't seem to get is the statement that should replace the NEW_PRODUCTS.

 

Anyone who can give me a push in the right direction? I have a fairly basic OsC 2.3.1 version.

 

Thanks for your time.

 

Léon

I finally got it working. Not the prettiest solution (programmatically) but it works. Here's what I did:

  • Install the newest version (2.3.1_1) according to the documentation. Activate the plugin and set the variables as desired. The slideshow will pop-up at either the left of right sidebar. Then, set Enable Products Cycle Slideshow Module to False and it will disappear. But the module is still used for configuring the appearance of the slideshow.

  • Copy the files from the 1.4 version to the folders according to that installation (that one doesn't go into the /boxes but in modules). This will eventually be the file that is going to be used.

  • Edit index.php and replace

<?php include(DIR_WS_MODULES . FILENAME_NEW_PRODUCTS); ?>

with

 

<?php require(DIR_WS_MODULES . 'products_cycle_slideshow.php'); ?>

 

It occurs twice. First time is for the category pages, second time (almost at the end) for the 'home-page'.

 

You can see the result at my site (in development).

 

Once I've figured out how to combine functionality from both files I'll clean them up and put them in one. What I haven't figured out yet is how to refer to the /boxes folder instead of /modules. Changing paths and adding them in filenames.php didn't work so far.

 

Questions? Just ask.

 

Good luck!

Hi...

I just installed this wonderful contribution on my osc 2.3.1 new site (http://www.WahanaStore.com). But I got the problem. Below the slideshow, it shows BOX_HEADING_ bla bla bla texts and strange icons in front of the product name.

Besides, when I move the cursor next to the picture, the source code is shown too.

How to fix these problems?

 

Thank you very much

Hello,

 

Great contribution Olof!

I have installed it on osC V2.2 RC1 (yes I know, version is a bit old, but it works well for my store).

 

So far, I do not see any images, only text sliding on the home page.

Question: what about the file thumbnail.inc.php that is mentionned in the manual?

 

Should I download that file and copy it into includes/classes on my server?

 

Thanks!
