[Contribution] Categories Images Box support thread

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

This is probably just me being a bit dense, but can't get the box to appear in my shop. The options are available in admin and have set to true, but no sign of it on my actual shop. Any ideas?

 

Cheers,

 

Dan

Did you add the code to catalog/index.php? Any error messages on your front page? What are your box settings?

Hi Jim,

 

I've checked and double-checked (I think it may even be at aleast a quadruple of checks) the index.php file both by eye and also, to make sure, with Beyond Compare 3 and all the code that you have said to add is in there. I don't get any error messages, just exactly what my shop looked like before the installation.

 

Title Value

Show box True

Show images in box True

Show name in box True

Show description in box True

Box style Grid

Box columns 3

Box frame style Stock

 

Am very confused!

Look in your page source for

<!-- categories_images //-->

and

<!-- categories_images_eof //-->

The code between those comments is the images box. If you can't figure out what is wrong from there, post just that code and I'll take a look.

 

Regards

Jim

This is getting stranger, I've not got that code in my source! I've checked the files through Beyond Compare again and they all seem to be fine but when I check page source, it's not there.

That means that the box code is not bing executed. It can be turned off in the admin, but you have it turned on. Are you using a template or other contribution that messes with the code in index.php? Also, check that you have pasted the code in the correct location on the page, not in a section that is not being executed.

Hi Jim,

 

Here is my index.php, although I am starting to get the hang of this php lark (having never done anything with it at all about 5 weeks ago) I am lost with this one. Is it clashing with another add-on?

I don't see the Image Box code anywhere on that page. You need to find these lines

		   <tr>
		<td class="main"><?php echo TEXT_MAIN; ?></td>
	  </tr>

and add these lines just after

<?php 
// Start Categories Images Box  
if (CATEGORIES_IMAGES_BOX == 'True') {
?>
	  <tr>
		<td><?php echo tep_draw_separator('pixel_trans.gif', '100%', '10'); ?></td>
	  </tr>
	  <tr>
		<td><?php include(DIR_WS_MODULES . FILENAME_CATEGORIES_IMAGES); ?></td>
	  </tr>
<?php 
} // if (CATEGORIES_IMAGES_BOX
// End Categories Images Box  
?>

Finally got it working!!! :D For some reason, the three catalog based files had reverted back to their previous state had to download them, change in Dreamweaver then upload again.

 

Thanks for help Jim

Hi Jim

 

I was wondering how I can turn off the top left hand corner in the box. When I change the settings in categories.php to

 

new infoBoxHeading($info_box_contents, false, false);

 

(from true) it turns off the corner in the original catgories box but not this one. Is there a way to do it?

 

Thanks

The stock file has the corner turned off (Line 153 in catalog/includes/modules/categories_images.php) so I don't know why you are seeing it on. Are you using a template?

Hi Jim - No not using a template, not doing anything particularly ambitious (www.shop-mobility.com)

 

I checked and it is set to false... new contentBoxHeading ($info_box_heading, false, false); .... in categories_images.php

 

So as you say, a strange one!

This addon uses the same box as the New Products and Also Purchased boxes (contentBox.) Have you made any changes to the contentBox class? Have you changed or renamed the square corner image?

Jim - No, the only change that I did was to remove the corners as there was no obvious way to change the color of the rounded corners so it was easier to remove them

 

ie

1. Inside catalog/images/ folder, copy pixel_trans.gif to ---> catalog/images/infobox folder

 

2. Rename corner_right_left.gif inside catalog/images/infobox to old_corner_right_left

 

3. Rename pixel_trans.gif that is now inside catalog/images/infobox folder to corner_right_left.gif

 

It worked on the column boxes.

This box uses those same corners. I can't see how this would make the corners rounded when they are turned off.

 

You could always replace the two round corners with the transparent image. That doesn't fix the problem, but it should work.

Thanks Jim, I renamed the corner_left to a transparent one and the mischievous corner disappeared. All sorted.

 

Good contribution by the way, thanks very much!

HELP!

 

I followed the install instructions exactly and now can't access our admin control panel. I can get to the main admin index page but not beyond there. Clicking on any of the links produces a 404 message.

 

All of the links look like they have bad PHP code. For example:

 

 

http://buildingmaterialsource.com/admin/FI...ation&gID=1

 

http://buildingmaterialsource.com/admin/FI...tion&gID=10

 

http://buildingmaterialsource.com/admin/FI...amp;set=payment

 

Is it because we're not running 2.2RC2a?

 

Any ideas? Totally stumped!

SOLVED... Found a post regarding a similar problem. Here is the solution in case anyone else has this happen:

 

I think your "filenames.php" file from shop/catalog/admin/includes/ folder is corrupt or not present.

 

Replace that from a good backup or download a fresh oscommerce from the blue SOLUTIONS tab, extract it, and replace your old one.

NEW PROBLEM:

 

admin/categories.php IS NOW BLANK.

 

I saw someone else posted a similar problem so I followed the suggestion. On the first install attempt I just used your file. Second time I went back to the original and used a file comparison program and did it manually. No help. Is this because of version conflicts between 2.2 and 2.2rc2a which your install file says its for?

 

The only other thing I can think of that is odd here is that we used our site hosting company's control panel to install OSC. For some odd reason they install the admin folder outside of the catalog. Even though everything has worked so far I wonder if this is now causing a problem since trying to install your plug-in.

 

Any help is verrrry appreciated!

The location of the Admin should not be a problem. I run an admin on a different URL and it works just fine. The RC2 computability issue is the most likely. See if your host's control panel gives you access to the server error log. Knowing the exact error will be a big help. Also, look at the source of that blank page to see if there is a hidden error listed.

 

I also recommend that you update your code to at least 2.2RC1. There are a lot of security fixes in there. Don't wait until you are hacked to find out how necessary those are.

Jim

Thank you for this contribution

 

I post here because there is a class left in (/includes/boxes/classes.php), its name is borderlessBox (look at your /includes/modules/categories_images.php line 146)

It would be interesting to see how a borderless box looks.

 

I installed Header Tags SEO v.3 along with this contrib, no prob yet

It's an "invisible" box: no borders or header. You can see this in the plain_box.jpg screenshot included in the distribution, or by setting the Box frame style in the admin to plain. This box class is also used in the More Pics 2.0.x contribution.

Jim

 

Edit: apparently I can't type today.

Hi Jim

 

I have this working but would like to use it with STS, do you know if this has been done yet? I was wondering how the placeholder would look: I assume that it would be installed within sts_column_left.php & probably something similar to the existing categories placeholder:

 

ie

// Get categories box from db or cache

if ((USE_CACHE == 'true') && empty($SID)) {

echo tep_cache_categories_box();

} else {

include(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'categories.php');

}

$sts->restart_capture ('categorybox', 'box');

 

but was wondering before I started hacking at it, if you knew if this had been done already?!

 

Thanks

Mark.

I haven't done this, so I can't say. You would probably have to treat it like one of the on-page modules (such as the New Products module) rather than a column box. Somebody on the STS support thread should be able to tell you more than I can.

 

Regards

Jim

How is it possible to remove the category images box altogether? I downloaded this contribution and like design as seen on the screenshots, but didnt get a hint on removing the boxes entirely.
