I'm sorry... it appears that both Andreas and I were misunderstood... I believe the instructions say:

 

in your catalog-directory

 

I don't see "sub-directory" anywhere.... :shock:

I would have thought it was for all in the directort and sub directories because in the next install section it specifically states

(only in the /catalog directory, NOT in any further subdirectories like /catalog/includes !!).

 

So I figure it would have stated that in the previous one if it meant for not in the sub directories -

 

No matter, the info arrived long before I started on the sub dirs.

 

Thanks Guys!!!!!!!

one thing

 

When I go to the sub menu and click on an item it also shows the submenus on the left as per the normal (non coolmenu)breadcrumb display.

 

Is this how its supposed to work?

Hi there,

 

did the installation as instructed, but get only the trans.gif.

 

I went through whole the thread, and found that this was happening to several people, but did not find any solution. I can see in the source that all data are there...

 

Does anybody has an idea?

 

Thanks

I'm sure this is a really dumb thing I haven't done but O have the coolmenu working but the breadcrumb display of the categories is also displaying - how do you turn it off?

 

I'm sure I did everything -

Hi all,

I just installed this cool menu, and I found out that it is actually very cool :D

 

I just had an idea, but couldnt find the fix...

My shop is centered and the table width is 700 px, so the menu is not showing correctly.

 

I tried to create a function that is called with the BODY tag onLoad function that would look for the first corner image and then positioning the menu relative to that x and y position.

 

Something like:

function set_menu_relative (){

   for ( i=0;i<document.images.length;i++ ){

      if ( document.images[i].src.indexOf('corner_right_left.gif') ){

              var positions = new Array();

              positions[0] = document.images[i].x;

              positions[1] = document.images[i].y+10;

              return positions;

              break;

      }

   }          

} 

pos = set_menu_relative ();

 

Then (somehow) you can give that values to the object properties:

          oCMenu.fromLeft = pos[0]

         oCMenu.fromTop = pos[1]

 

This one option, another one would be to assign an id or name value to each image and find it with a similar function and place the menu.

 

Is that possible??

My javascript knowledge is not that good to implement this into my script.

Any help will be very appreciated

:)

Better if we use the fill image...

cm_fill.gif

So it would look like:

 

function set_menu_relative (){ 

   for ( i=0;i<document.images.length;i++ ){ 

      if ( document.images[i].src.indexOf('cm_fill.gif') ){ 

              var positions = new Array(); 

              positions[0] = document.images[i].x; 

              positions[1] = document.images[i].y; 

              return positions; 

              break; 

      } 

   }          

} 

pos = set_menu_relative (); 





         oCMenu.fromLeft = pos[0] 

         oCMenu.fromTop = pos[1]

 

Anyone knows if this is possible???

Thank you.

Hi,

 

I love the coolMenu but I think I missed something. The menu box does not get adjusted to the height of the js menu. Looks like it does not get the height from the var $height. :cry:

 

http://epssh.com/itc/default.php

 

Can anybody tell me if I oversaw anything or where I need to make the necessary change.

 

Thanks for your help.

for the above 2 posts.

 

Check the CSS. Should solve the problem.

 

@ image based

As for basing the menu on a set pixel image is a superb idea. Have you tried posting at the site which makes the original script?

I need to remove the header on my pages. I have installed cool Menu and the header is showing twice. The site is http://healthyremedies.biz. Any suggestions.

 

Also, if any one can tell me, how do I make the categories box a fixed height and remove the category listings?

Nice looking shop :)

 

I think you have to delete some HTML coding in your header.php file because it is showing everywhere and I don't think you have added the header image in every single file. :)

Post your header.php file so we can see what you've got.

 

Fix the height going to catalog/includes/coolmenu.php -->

oCMenu.level[0].height=24

or maybe you want to change the background .gif height??

$height.= 3.8*count($categories);

this will affect to this file:

catalog/includes/boxes/coolmenu.php

right here -->

  $info_box_contents[] = array('text'  => '

    <img src="images/trans.gif" width="150" height="' . $height . '">');

 

Then, you say you don't want category listing??

I don't understand what you mean.. sorry for my bad english :D

Joan,

 

here is the includes/header.php. But in the coolmenu instructions I only modified the catalog files, nothing in catalog/includes?

:D the url is hiding in the code...

Great :)

I've entered a new topic, if I have answers I will tell you.

 

 

Then, the strange "double heading image" I don't know....

I'm quite new with this and I still don't know which problems one could find.

 

Anyway, did you place the code right after every <body> tag??

Something like -->

 

<body marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" topmargin="0" >



<!-- coolMenu //-->

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

<!-- coolMenu_eof //-->



<!-- header //-->

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

<!-- header_eof //-->

 

Then, make sure you have only one of this:

<!-- header //-->

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

<!-- header_eof //-->

 

Byez!

I went to the www.dhtmlcentral.com site and found that the menu positioning issue was already fixed in newer versions of the coolmenu, so I tried to implement it on my shop, but it only works on Netscape :?

 

Maybe someone can help me so we have coolmenues anywhere we want in our shops :D

 

What I've done so far is -->

 

## open includes/coolmenu.php

find:

 <!--      Copyright 2002 www.dhtmlcentral.com  --  modified for PHP and osCommerce by Andreas Kothe - www.oddbyte.de     -->

<script>

after add:

//Extra code to find position:

function findPos(){

 if(bw.ns4){   //Netscape 4

   x = document.layers.layerMenu.pageX

   y = document.layers.layerMenu.pageY

 }else{ //other browsers

   x=0; y=0; var el,temp

   el = bw.ie4?document.all["divMenu"]:document.getElementById("divMenu");

   if(el.offsetParent){

     temp = el

     while(temp.offsetParent){ //Looping parent elements to get the offset of them as well

       temp=temp.offsetParent;

       x+=temp.offsetLeft

       y+=temp.offsetTop;

     }

   }

   x+=el.offsetLeft

   y+=el.offsetTop

 }

 //Returning the x and y as an array

 return [x,y]

}



pos = findPos()

alert (pos);

 

find:

oCMenu.fromLeft= .....

oCMenu.fromTop= ......

comment it and add these lines:

oCMenu.fromLeft=pos[0]

oCMenu.fromTop=pos[1]

//We also need to "re place" the menu on resize. So:

oCMenu.onresize="pos = findPos(); oCMenu.fromLeft=pos[0]; oCMenu.fromTop=pos[1]"

 

## open includes/boxes/coolmenu.php

find:

<!-- copyright 2003 Andreas Kothe - www.oddbyte.de // -->



      <TR>

        <TD>

after add:

<ilayer id="layerMenu">

<div id="divMenu">

find:

  new infoBox($info_box_contents);



?>

after add:

</div>

</ilayer>

 

## open default.php

( Let's debug only in the default.php file... )

Change the placement of the coolmenu's include statement so it is right after the column_left include.

It would look exactly like this this:

.....

<!-- left_navigation //-->

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

<!-- left_navigation_eof //-->



<!-- coolMenu //-->

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

<!-- coolMenu_eof //-->

.....

 

I've done it this way so the <div> tag is loaded before we search for it in the javascript, otherwise It would give you an error.

 

That's it.

It works on Netscape, but not with ie.

Anyone can find a fix??

ThanX
