Need help with contribution installation

Recommended Posts

I need some help as I have spent hours trying to get this contribution to work, I keep getting errors.

I am confused as to the instructions in the first line, there is no counter in catalog/includes to copy.

I don't have a catalog only an admin, is that the same as a catalog and all below it.

I can't help feeling the below is missing some words or it has the wrong wording.

All help greatly appreciated

These are the instructions that come with the contribution.

 

- Copy the counter.php in the catalog/includes directory. Or change it manually, see file below.

- Edit catalog/includes/application_top.php

Search for the who's online function call, and remove/remark it:

 

// include the who's online functions

// require(DIR_WS_FUNCTIONS . 'whos_online.php');

// tep_update_whos_online();

 

(Be smart, copy these lines in your clipboard....)

 

- Edit catalog/includes/footer.php

Paste the lines (without the remarks :-) just below require(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'counter.php');

 

(Important!! If you place it above this line, your counter will not work!)

 

require(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'counter.php');

// include the who's online functions

require(DIR_WS_FUNCTIONS . 'whos_online.php');

tep_update_whos_online();

 

That's all!

 

 

 

 

 

For the manual freaks, here's the counter.php:

 

<?php

/*

$wo_session_id = tep_session_id();

 

$known_customer_query = tep_db_query("select count(*) as count from " . TABLE_WHOS_ONLINE . " where session_id = '" . $wo_session_id . "'");

$known_customer = tep_db_fetch_array($known_customer_query);

 

$counter_query = tep_db_query("select startdate, counter from " . TABLE_COUNTER);

 

if ($known_customer['count'] > 0) {

// User already known, don't add 1...

$counter = tep_db_fetch_array($counter_query);

$counter_startdate = $counter['startdate'];

$counter_now = ($counter['counter']);

} else {

 

if (!tep_db_num_rows($counter_query)) {

$date_now = date('Ymd');

tep_db_query("insert into " . TABLE_COUNTER . " (startdate, counter) values ('" . $date_now . "', '1')");

$counter_startdate = $date_now;

$counter_now = 1;

} else {

$counter = tep_db_fetch_array($counter_query);

$counter_startdate = $counter['startdate'];

$counter_now = ($counter['counter'] + 1);

tep_db_query("update " . TABLE_COUNTER . " set counter = '" . $counter_now . "'");

}

}

 

$counter_startdate_formatted = strftime(DATE_FORMAT_LONG, mktime(0, 0, 0, substr($counter_startdate, 4, 2), substr($counter_startdate, -2), substr($counter_startdate, 0, 4)));

Copy the counter.php to the catalog/includes directory,

in your case it may be

Coopco thank you for the reply.

I am confused as you mention catalog .

When I connect with my site I see a blank folder, I then expand it and I see admin, cgi-bin, download, images, includes, pub.

If I expand admin I see backups, images, includes.

Now as I have two includes which one do I post into?

since the instructions do not say admin/includes

it is the one you see here

admin, cgi-bin, download, images, includes, pub.

Yes I have that correct but when I look in catalog/includes/application_top.php I see I have loaded in the counter.php which I am thinking is in correct and I need to reload that page.

Where can I go to get just that page to reload?
