[Addon} Modular Front Page

Recommended Posts

cool, that should help a bit.

 

The idea is to have a setup of

 

 

[iMAGE] [PRODUCT NAME]

[iMAGE] [PRODUCT DESC]

[iMAGE] [PRODUCT DESC]

[iMAGE] [PRODUCT DESC]

[iMAGE]

 

or something similar, with it going right across... maybe a price kinda like the 'other' listing pages

1/ Languages Titles for New Products like in Upcoming products

2/ Languages Titles for Featured Products like in Upcoming products

If you find time to build this

 

Thx

@ I'll add the language-dependent titles if you'll provide those translations.

Find this line in catalog/includes/modules/front_page/scroller.php:

 

	    $header .= '  width: 610px;' . "\n";

 

and change that 610 to whatever width you want.

That means that you are missing one or more of the required files. Check your installation again.

Set the scroller's sort order to a lower number than the other modules. This is covered in the instructions.

Hi Jim,

 

I have a little trouble with the banner rotator module. I set all the banners in the admin panel (the test ones provided with the contribution) but it doesn't seem to work like it supposed to. Instead of displaying the images one after another, it only shows one static image (no fading to the next one). When I refresh the browser, it displays another image.

 

I can't figure out what could be the problem!

 

Can U help?

 

Thanks,

Tony

Hello Jim

 

I have your module working correctly but have also installed Mindsparx Star Product, which again works as expected but I can not control the position of where it appears on the front page, at present it appears below the front page modules I have installed, here's the code extract from my index.php

 

} else { // default page
// Start Modular Front Page
 ?>
 <div class="contentContainer">
 <?php echo $oscTemplate->getBlocks('front_page'); ?>
 </div>
 <?php
// End Modular Front Page
// STAR PRODUCT PIMPED START...
    if (SHOW_STARPRODUCT=="true") {
   include(DIR_WS_MODULES . FILENAME_STAR_PRODUCT); }
// STAR PRODUCT PIMPED END...

 }

 

I think I may have answered my own question in writing the post, Is it really just as simple as

 

} else { // default page
// STAR PRODUCT PIMPED START...
    if (SHOW_STARPRODUCT=="true") {
   include(DIR_WS_MODULES . FILENAME_STAR_PRODUCT); }
// STAR PRODUCT PIMPED END...
// Start Modular Front Page
 ?>
 <div class="contentContainer">
 <?php echo $oscTemplate->getBlocks('front_page'); ?>
 </div>
 <?php
// End Modular Front Page

 }

Your first code snippit will place the Star Products at the bottom of the first page; the second will place it at the top. No other placement is possible unless you convert Star Products into a 2.3.1 module.

 

Looking at the description of Star Products, it looks like you could do that with the Featured Products module set to just one product.

Hi Jim,

 

I reverse the code as I want more than one featured product to be generated by the front page modules.

I've uploaded a new package that fixes a bug in the Banner Rotator that made links from the banners fail to load the correct page. I have also added language-dependant titles to the New Products and Featured Products modules. If you are upgrading from an older version, uninstall your existing module before replacing the module file.

You do not have any products selected. Of course that will not work.

I would like to move the banner rotator from its normal place with all the other front modules to the top of the page.

 

Where is the code to do this ?

 

I've looked but can't seem to find it.

 

Thanks

 

Martyn

If you want it on the top of the front page, just set the Sort Order for that module less than all the other modules.

 

If you want to move it into the Header so it shows on all pages, you'll have to modify the Banner Rotator module to work with the Header-Footer Contents modules. You'll need to change the $group and the code in the class method to match the Header-Footer modules.

Hi jim.

 

Thanks for the quick response. In the header was where I was thinking of moving it to to be on all pages.

 

Is this an easy thing to do ?

 

Thanks again

I haven't done it, but the modules are very similar, so it shouldn't be all that hard. A working knowledge of PHP would certainly help.
