Module or mod idea...please take a look

Recommended Posts

OK I have no idea how to do this but I know how usefull it would be.


From admin it would be great to be able to add top banners, bottom banners, side banners, main banners on front page, and banners on category pages..this would make the site so easy to customise and make banners easy to change as well.


Not just for advertising but general graphics and the entire site looks could be changed easily without messing with code.]


the is one module that allows the addition of side banners, but this needs to be expanded.


even if someone could explain the code segment that needs adding to a file to get it to display the banners already available in admin in 2.3


I can't even work out how many pixels across the centre is on the main page to make a grapic to fit...


Oh while I am on...has anyone noticed that 2.3 only allows a very small header graphic it's way too small...does anyone know how to make the space for the grpahic bigger like it used to be?

I already answered some of this on your other post. The modular Addons that I know of:

1. Modular Front Page

2. Modular SEO Header Tags

3. Banners Box (A banner rotator in the left or right column)

4. Header Footer Content Modules

5. Generic Box (Anything in the left or right column)

6. Theme Switcher (Technically a header module)

7. Modular PDF Datasheet


There will be the following at some point, if and when I find the time to finish them, or someone helps (Hint, hint)

8. Modular Categories Page

9. Modular Products Page

10. Modular Checkout Success Page


A banner width of 630 pixels works well in the front page banner rotator. The center section is 640 pixels, less 5 pixels gutter on each side, so 630. Look up the 960 Grid system for an explanation of how the grid layout works.


The logo is specified in catalog/includes/header.php and in the stylesheet (storeLogo ID). If you want to remove the size restrictions, change the line in header.php to this:


  <div id="storeLogo" style="position:absolute;z-index:0;"><?php echo '<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT) . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'store_logo.png', STORE_NAME) . '</a>'; ?></div>
