Choose a category fro new products in frontpage

12 posts in this topic

Hello,

Currently, all the new products appear randomly on frontpage, and from all categories.

 

I'm looking for a way to have them appear only from the category I want, including the subcategories as well.

 

Here is my new_products.php code.

Bump! I'm very in need for this too, searched the forum, haven't found nothing.

 

Thanks!

Thanks for sending me the addons, isn't there a quicker way to set this up by editing the code below. The code works fine for randomising the products on the homepage, just need the products to be specific products or a specific category. "if ( (!isset($new_products_category_id)) || ($new_products_category_id == '0') ) {" - doesn't seem to be working when you enter a category ID, works without randomising but not with randomising products.

You are trying to reinvent the wheel. The featured products contribution allows you to select the products you want to display on the front page. There is no reason to continue to try to recode the new_products module.

Thanks Chris. I've installed featured products and works fine. Displays the products on the homepage, but the styling is horrible. Although, now i have some custom styling problems. Any idea how to get them transformed back to the correct styling using the code below without interfering with featured products? The styling i need is the new_products.php found below.

 

Featured Products Styling (featured.php)

 if ($num_featured_products > 0) {
$counter = 0;
$col = 0;
$featured_prods_content = '<table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2">';
while ($featured_products = tep_db_fetch_array($featured_products_query)) {
  $counter++;
  if ($col === 0) {
	$featured_prods_content .= '<tr>';
  }
  $featured_prods_content .= '<td width="33%" align="center" valign="top"><a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, 'products_id=' . $featured_products['products_id']) . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $featured_products['products_image'], $featured_products['products_name'], SMALL_IMAGE_WIDTH, SMALL_IMAGE_HEIGHT) . '</a><br /><a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, 'products_id=' . $featured_products['products_id']) . '">' . $featured_products['products_name'] . '</a><br />' . $currencies->display_price($featured_products['products_price'], tep_get_tax_rate($featured_products['products_tax_class_id'])) . '</td>';
  $col ++;
  if (($col > 2) || ($counter == $num_featured_products)) {
	$featured_prods_content .= '</tr>';
	$col = 0;
  }
}
$featured_prods_content .= '</table>';
?>
 <h2><?php echo $title; ?></h2>
 <div class="contentText">
<?php echo $featured_prods_content; ?>
 </div>

 

Before, Custom styling (new_products.php):

 $row = 0;
 $col = 0;
 $info_box_contents = array();
 while ($new_products = tep_db_fetch_array($new_products_query)) {
// ----------
 $product_query = tep_db_query("select products_description, products_id from " . TABLE_PRODUCTS_DESCRIPTION . " where products_id = '" . (int)$new_products['products_id'] . "' and language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "'");
 $product = tep_db_fetch_array($product_query);
 $p_id = $product['products_id']; [/b]
[b]  $p_pic = '<p><a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, 'products_id=' . $new_products['products_id']) . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $new_products['products_image'], $new_products['products_name'], SMALL_IMAGE_WIDTH, SMALL_IMAGE_HEIGHT) . '</a></p>';

 $p_name = '<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, 'products_id=' . $new_products['products_id']) . '">' . $new_products['products_name'] . '</a>';

 $p_desc = ''.substr(strip_tags($product['products_description']), 0, MAX_DESCR_1).' ...';

 $p_price = '<span class="productSpecialPrice">'.$currencies->display_price($new_products['products_price'], tep_get_tax_rate($new_products['products_tax_class_id'])).'</span>';

 $p_buy_now = '<a href="'.tep_href_link("products_new.php","action=buy_now&products_id=".$p_id).'">'.tep_image_button('button_add_to_cart1.gif', '', ' class="btn2"').'</a>';[/b]
[b]	$info_box_contents[$row][$col] = array('align' => 'left',
									   'params' => ' style="width:50%;"',
									   'text' => ''.tep_draw_prod2_top().'
<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0"><tr><td class="new">
<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0">
 <tr><td class="name name2_padd">'.$p_name.'</td></tr>
 <tr><td class="pic2_padd">'.tep_draw_prod_pic_top().''.$p_pic.''.tep_draw_prod_pic_bottom().'</td></tr>
 <tr><td>'.tep_draw_name_top().'
  <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0">
<tr>
 <td class="price2_padd"><b>'.PRICE.':</b>'.$p_price.'</td>
 <td>'.tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES.'part.gif').'</td>
 <td class="button2_padd button2_marg">

  </table>
 </td>
</tr>
  </table>
 '.tep_draw_name_bottom().'</td></tr>
</table>
</td></tr></table>		  
'.tep_draw_prod2_bottom().'');
$col ++;
if ($col > 1) {
  $col = 0;
  $row ++;
}
 }
new contentBox($info_box_contents);

 

I need the featured products styling how the new_products.php is without interfering with featured products.

 

Thanks, Loyd.

What you call "custom styling" is probaly some sort of template that use functions like "tep_draw_prod_pic_top()" for simple design/layout tasks + all that html styling like <b></b>

 

That's in my eyes worse than the original that is clean and can be easily styled with css

 

However, you can use the html structure of your new_products and replace the variables there with the data from your featured products box. You'll need to update the query to pull the products description

Had a play around with the variables and got there in the end. @@multimixer, possibly so, but the styling of the designs for the main page is much better than the original clean, plain and boring styling and is working fine for all common browsers and functions correctly, i can't see any issues with it.

Featured products now working and all fixed, anyone else having problems use what Chris said above. ''Featured Products''.

I didn't say that the default look better than you template

 

What I said is, that the code is much more clean and easy to style than the template monster mess you have. Only recommented thing to do, would be to change the table layout into an unordered list

 

Of course, this styling is something you need to do, you could say the default is "un-styled", but easy to style just using css. That is not the case with your template

 

Anyway, if you're happy with it :-

 

Glad that it worked

Another way to do it, answering the orginal question and the bump;

 

/includes/modules/new_products.php

 

Find (approx line 14):

$new_products_query = tep_db_query("select p.products_id, p.products_image, p.products_tax_class_id, pd.products_name, if(s.status, s.specials_new_products_price, p.products_price) as products_price from " . TABLE_PRODUCTS . " p left join " . TABLE_SPECIALS . " s on p.products_id = s.products_id, " . TABLE_PRODUCTS_DESCRIPTION . " pd where p.products_status = '1' and p.products_id = pd.products_id and pd.language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "' order by p.products_date_added desc limit " . MAX_DISPLAY_NEW_PRODUCTS);

 

Change to:


   $new_products_query = tep_db_query("select distinct p.products_id, p.products_image, p.products_tax_class_id, pd.products_name, if(s.status, s.specials_new_products_price, p.products_price) as products_price from " . TABLE_PRODUCTS . " p left join " . TABLE_SPECIALS . " s on p.products_id = s.products_id, " . TABLE_PRODUCTS_DESCRIPTION . " pd, " . TABLE_PRODUCTS_TO_CATEGORIES . " p2c, " . TABLE_CATEGORIES . " c where p.products_id = p2c.products_id and p2c.categories_id = c.categories_id and c.parent_id = 'XYZ' and p.products_status = '1' and p.products_id = pd.products_id and pd.language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "' order by p.products_date_added desc limit " . MAX_DISPLAY_NEW_PRODUCTS);

 

Change XYZ to the ID of the top level category you want to feature on the index page.
