Ok went though all 54 pages still does not tell me if i need to add the 3 lines to everypage even if there is not a body tag

Hi Keith,

 

only pages with a body tag and only in the catalog directory.

 

only pages that actually are a real shop page that have things like 'include application_top.php' and 'include column_left.php' and 'include header.php'- go through each of your catalog pages and forget ones that are pure php with no html and other ones like popup pages which dont include these other files (usually short files). There are still a lot of files to change though !

Well i thought i had cracked the menu problem using a relative DIV, but just noticed another issue this brings me in IE and shows up as a javascript error in Netscape. Error shows that first menu item cannot be clicked and the menu top line then disappears !

 

Just been experimenting and tried using a named image tag instead of a div as i thought this was better supported in browsers, and got it working again.

Phew !

 

Changed my includes\boxes\coolmenu.php to use two images as i found another problem having just the one named image on its own created. The size of the image would mess up the menu rendering again so set it to zero - its only a coordinate placeholder now which sits in the new category box in the right position.

 

So i have one transparent image with zero width and height named 'menuloc1' - this is the placeholder name i pass to the new js script which gets the correct xy coordinates. then i have a second image under that with no name to pad out the space - cannot seem to get it to use $height anymore (not sure why but dont care at this moment) so i fix the height of this second transparent image to avoid the menu from dropping over the other boxes.

 

so my boxes\coolmenu.php has the following now:

 

 

  $info_box_contents[] = array('text'  => '<img src="images/trans.gif" width="0" height="0" name="menuloc1"><br><img src="images/trans.gif" width="146" height="35" >');

 

And it all seems to work again (until the next problme i havent spotted yet!)

Maniac, I can't seem to find anything on the inside of coll menu being blank except not to install it the way the directions say and install like dlj or some guy like that says. I am using STS 2.1and cool menu 1.2 have any idea why it is not showing information in the menu. I made sure nothing had " ' " in the titles. Any other clue

Hi

post a link if you want.

 

I have not got STS but i have a very modifed site and had to install differently then the normal method.

Do you get anything showing ? Do you get a menu at all ? or just nothing in the menu ?

 

May be useful to post up say index.php - the normal install is to have the script include in the head, then have the coomenu.php include just after the <body> tag.

Did you modify the boxes\coolmenu file ?

 

I find it better to test with Netscape 7 which has a javascript console (under tools) to see javascript error messages that IE doesnt show you...may help isolate whats happening a bit.

 

Problems i had related to my trying to get the menu location x,y coordinates and when the javascript failed i wouldnt get a menu at all, so i started doing alert messages to show variables in the code - if an alert box didnt show, then the code hadnt got that far so id move back a bit till i found the offending areas

 

you can do alert('hello') or alert('x='x) type messages in the javascript (more so in includes\coolmenu.php and includes\boxes\coolmenu.php rather then in the coolmenu.js (menu-animation.js).

might help you find where its going wrong

Thanks for the quick reply. I installed the files like they said everything in my web page loads even the menu loads there is just nothing inside the menu. I did not modify the /boxes/cool menu file i guess i'm not sure what i am suppose to do to that.

did you have the .js files uploaded to the correct location?

 

FYI make sure when you post code you wrap it in

 tags. It makes it easier for those trying to help read it.

ok that doesnt help much. The script is in the right place in the head and so is the include coolmenu.

 

perhaps a copy of the 'view source' of this index page when its on a browser will help instead.

 

you should see stuff like:

 

 

oCMenu.makeMenu('top_1','',category1','http://your-url.com/producturl.html')

oCMenu.makeMenu('sub_1_1','top_1','subcategory1name','http://your-url.com/subcat.html')

 

(your site may use index.php?cid= instead of .html - i use seo contrib and that makes the links point to html pages instead.)

 

there should be a ocMenu.makeMenu(xxx) for each category - the top_1 for top level, then sub_1_1, Top_1 means subcategory 1 of top menu 1 etc. You will have top_2 and top_3 for next top level categories

 

This is the bit of javascript that is created by the includes\boxes\coolmenu.php after it parses the category table in the database and makes lots of items which pass to the includes\coolmenu.php to then display them in the menu.

 

The original dhtml code was designed for hardcoded menus and has not been modified - all thats being done if some work to make these 'oCMenu.makeMenu' strings correctly formatted to make tehmenu system.

So you may have some problem with formatting of these strings based on your template.

Sorry about the code , I loaded the js file in the includes menu. One thing i did notice is the version i am using does not have the extra file that goes into classes it is another box.php file it is not on the original load file that i downloaded first. Do i need to load that. I'm lost as far as showing the info..

I meant just right click and 'view source' when the page is in a browser - you will see the page html and javascript minus any php code. Most of this contrib is relating to javascript issues rather then php issues. if you cut and past that here (in code braces!) too.

 

you should have \include\boxes\coolmenu.php uploaded too.

This is referenced in your \includes\column_left.php file and is included instead of the standard boxes\categories.php file.

 

You could post the boxes\coolmenu.php file you are using too.

I meant just right click and 'view source' when the page is in a browser - you will see the page html and javascript minus any php code. Most of this contrib is relating to javascript issues rather then php issues. if you cut and past that here (in code braces!) too.

 

you should have \include\boxes\coolmenu.php uploaded too.

This is referenced in your \includes\column_left.php file and is included instead of the standard boxes\categories.php file.

 

You could post the boxes\coolmenu.php file you are using too.

Ok the last file you posted isn't complete. Is that all you have or did the forum cut it short? If that is all you have then you need to re-upload that file as it looks like it upload correctly.


Search the forum and contributions before posting. If that doesn't work, keep looking, then post. The forum is for seeking help and advice NOT for someone to do your work for you. Try to do something on your on, if you are going to run a shop then learn how it works.

Not real sure then. Do you have the most current release with all bug fixes installed? Also I would go back from step one and carefully do each step paying very close attention. I know I have installed this twice on two different stores with no problems.

Ok got everything working. There was an error in the boxes file that was causing the data to crumb. I fixed that and now it is working. If anyone reads this and needs help just pm if i am online or ask me.

I have STS 1.2.1 installed with ms2.2 and cool menu.

If you haven't installed anything for the cool menu on sts can show you an easy way to do this stop 60 minutes worth of work.

Thanks for the link, that helped a little bit, but it doesn't show how to point the catalog to a sub-domain.

i would think replacing "tep_href_link(FILENAME_CONTACT_US"

 

with

 

'subdomain.domain.com' would work

Hi T_love,

That didn't work either, it got me a little closer I think, it might be that I am on a Windows server and the script needs to be written different, I don't know anything about .php so just a guess.

If you have anymore ideas, I am willing to try... Thanks... <_<
