coolMenu

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

I finally got the box on the same spot as the box but now i have my

shop centered on 750 pixels.. but coolmenu still thinks I use the full browser screen... Ok.. But you can't fix this with the height and left counters..

 

For an example see http://www.notebookstore.nl/shop/default.php and resize your screen a little bit... the store keeps 750 pixels but coolmenu goes his own way depending on the resoltion!

 

Please help me on this,

regards erik! (It's a great contribution!!)

 

Did you find a solution for this ?

I have the same problem

Hello,

 

i need help for installation of CoolMenu!

 

but i cant speak english very well... :roll:

 

Andreas helf mir bitte,

folgendes klappt nicht:

 

ich habe dein Men? erfolgreich eingebaut, nur das verlinken klappt irgendwie nicht richtig, und zwar heisst der link einer Untergruppe z.B:

http://www.nova9-computer.de/temp/catalog/...10e4?cPath=8_82

und ein anderes mal so:

http://www.nova9-computer.de/temp/catalog/....php?cPath=8_82

 

wenn osCsid dabei ist, dann geht das nicht, :( er springt wieder zur startseite, wenn ohne osCsid dann gehts... :?:

 

und wenn ich bei hauptkategorie reinschaue dann steht da f?r cPath=nolink, ist das normal :?:

 

Wof?r ist den diese Variable(osCsid) da? Session? kann man die abschalten oder was kann ich dagegen machen, damit es immer funktioniert?

ich danke dir! :D

 

Dein Men? ist super! :wink:

 

Gru?

Steffen

 

P.S.: Ich bin ein Anf?nger was PHP angeht! :lol:

Hi Andy,

 

any idea as to why some of us don't see the menu? But just a box filled with the transparent gif file?  

In the source code of the page I can see my menu structure been build up, it just doesn't get displayed...

 

please help us out here if you have the time!

 

thanks!

 

Exact same problem here, in the source code of the pages the menu is perfectly build. But in the box just the trans.gif....

 

Hopefully does Keyzer know the fix for this problem and does he want to share it with us... :P

Mine works on all the pages except when you get to the product_info.php pages and then it displays blank too. See the menu constructed in the code though. :?:

I see my problem in the code in that it thinks the product_info.php files are "pop-up" pages and therefore not displaying the menu:

 

function popupWindow(url) {

window.open(url,'popupWindow','toolbar=no,location=no,directories=no,status=no,menubar=no,scrollbars=no,resizab

le=yes,copyhistory=no,width=100,height=100,screenX=150,screenY=150,top=150,left=1

50')

}

 

Anyone know how to fix this? All the other pages work fine.

OK FIXED IT :)

 

I figured out that I was using the MoPics Contribution that also uses JavaScript on the product_info.php files to "Pop-up" the extra pics. I had the javascript line for the coolmenu right after the <HEAD> tag. To fix it I moved that line after the MoPics Java Script statement and right before the closing </HEAD> tag.

 

Works great now, Thanks! :)

 

 

 

<head>

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

<title><?php echo TITLE ?></title>

<base href="<?php echo (getenv('HTTPS') == 'on' ? HTTPS_SERVER : HTTP_SERVER) . DIR_WS_CATALOG; ?>">

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="stylesheet.css">

<script language="javascript"><!--

function popupWindow(url) {

window.open(url,'popupWindow','toolbar=no,location=no,directories=no,status=no,menubar=no,scrollbars=no,resizab

le=yes,copyhistory=no,width=100,height=100,screenX=150,screenY=150,top=150,left=1

50')

}

//--></script>

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript1.2" SRC="includes/menu_animation.js"></SCRIPT>

</head>

Hi,

 

tried that to, moved all the javascript statements till just above the </HEAD> tag,

 

checked all the

<!-- coolMenu //-->

<?php require(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'coolmenu.php'); ?>

<!-- coolMenu_eof //-->

statements to. all in correct position...

 

but still no menu :cry:

what's wrong???????

 

Can someone verify that it's normal not to have the coolmenu statements in such .php files as "checkout_process.php, redirect.php, download.php" simply because there 's no <BODY> or <HEADER> part in it?

 

And there's no need to add these two parts to any other files except the ones in the Catalog folder right? no subfolders or anything?

 

there must be something I'm missing here...

 

Anyone? :?

Had the same prob here, finally I found out that when you've got

 's

in your category descriptions, (for example in camera's of pda's) the script won't work.

 

So I removed all the 's in my descriptions and suddenly the menu shows up.

 

But I've got a new problem:

 

The menu is correct but when I move over a category and the first submenu shows the top 3 categories are grey. And the further submenu's won't show up......

 

Anyone?

Hmmm, now on some browsers not all pages load the menu but it seems if you go through several pages and then back to the ones from before that they all of a sudden display the menu. I see the error reported by IE is (just an example):

 

Line 25

Char:3

Error: 'makeCM' is undefined

Code: 0

URL: http://www.xxx.com/catalog/default.php/osC...gote003316fgq6w

OK, I set in Admin the "Use Search Engine Friendly URL's" to false and now the menu generates fine on all pages, even with Session ID's. Not sure what is different really by looking at it. What I am losing by changing that setting in Admin?

Did anyone ever figure out a fix for this yet? I'm trying to set up Coolmenu for my store and am getting a bit frustrated. I have everything installed properly, and even fixed the part of the code that casues an error due to the session ID thing, but I can't seem to get the menu to display in any version of Netscape - though it works fine in any version of IE.

 

I was poking around the source code on www.geraeteland.de/shop/catalog/ - since his shop functions properly with Netscape and is theoretically using the same cody - and noticed a small difference when I viewed the source code for his page as compared to mine. At the very end of his page, right before the </body> there is a line that starts like this:

 

<!--<div style="position:absolute;left:-220;top:0;width:200;height:450">--><font style="font-size:1px;color:white">Audio und HiFi,   DVD-Player/Home cinema, Haushaltsger?te,   ...

 

and goes on. It looks like this is his menu. My page doesn't come up with any lines like this when I'm viewing the source from a browser, no matter what browser I use. Perhaps he forgot to include in his contribution some vital piece of code that is in use on his site? Or is there any other reason that this would be happening?

 

Well, I hope to hear from someone about this. THis is IMHO much nicer looking than the other DHTML menu and at least on his site, works better with older browsers.

 

For anyone that wants to look, my site-under-construction is www.dm-gremlin.com/sales/

Thank you for your reply "Rainguy"

But I am not using the "CoolMenu" I am using the "MenuBar"

So if someone have some information on exactly where and what I need

To edit, that will be very much appreciated.

As I have already gone through the "Categories_dhtml.php" file, and

Tested and tried, everything that I know to do, (No knowing that much about PHP, Learning as I go)

But get nothing but errors.

 

Thank you

Wayne

Hi Carrz. I just recently swapped out the coolMenu menu in favor of the one that you are using, and it's working fine, and I think I've figured out the ins and outs of it. I'd love to help you, but I'm not entirely sure what you're asking. What part of your site is missing now that you have installed the new menu? I don't see a reference to the code that you're trying to add anywhere on my site, or even an images/boxes directory. Perhaps I could offer some assistance if I knew the end result you were looking for.

 

Take a look at how it looks on my site-under-construction www.dm-gremlin.com/sales/ for a common reference if need be.

 

Rainguy: Do you actually have a functional coolmenu downloaded from the contributions section on this site set up somewhere? I'd like to take a look if you would please post a link. I clicked on the link you posted earlier, but all I got was a porn site.

dmGremlin....lol :D that was just an example of a URL

 

Yes, I have it working on my site and like it alot better than the one you are using. There is a SessionID issue that still needs to be sorted out when enabling Search Engine Friendly URL's.

well "rainguy" I have to say, that is a beauitul site that you have there :-)

Anyway, you could let us know exactly how you got the CoolMenu to work??

And how you got the "Categories Images" To work with it as well.

If you could post some really good information, I would love to use the

Cool Menu.

 

And "dmGremlin" I am using images simular to what "rainguy" is using,

for his tables. So hopefully he can give some good instrustions, that

Are easy to understand, and get the CoolMenu to work,

"Rainguy" Question for you please Sir?

Looking really good at your site just now, I noticed that you have located

in the center a "Latest Site News" Could you please inform me on how you

Added this to your site? I think my site could really benefit from this feature.

 

((Good going on the "Customer Ratings!!!"))

Thanks for the fast response, Rainguy -

 

Yes, I prefer the coolMenu to the one I'm using now too. It was a shame that I had to replace it.

 

As I suspected, your coolMenu doesn't work with Netscape either. I don't think that it has anything to do with any mistake you could have made while installing it. I have a feeling that the coolMenu from here just simply doesn't work with Netscape.

 

I think there might be a problem with the way the coolMenu that was uploaded here handles identifying browser types... since the code itself seems to look ok. I'm not sure why, but the site belonging to the person who uploaded this contribution DOES work with Netscape. www.geraeteland.de/shop/catalog/ but upon closer inspection, his code creates a slightly different html page than is created by the code that he uploaded. I wish he would read this - as I think he may have inadvertently made a mistake as he was generously creating a package for us to share from the code he uses on his site.

 

I have a functional workaround for the SessionID problem... Perhaps it is even a fix (I changed one line of code in coolmenu.php) though I think the Netscape issue is one that must be addressed first.

 

I've tested this on 3 different computers, with the latest version of IE and Netscape on 2 different PCs running Windows XP, and with Netscape 4.7 and 7, and IE5 on a G4 on OSX and 9.21

 

If anyone has any insights into this, maybe we can put our heads together and figure this out.
