Products in columns for 2.3

Recommended Posts

I am trying to find an add on to make the product list for the category in columns. When I used the older versions of osCommerce, I used an add on that did this. I cannot find one that is compatible with 2.3.

As product listing is done with the module product_listing.php and most contributions that change the listing layout just alter that for the most part, most product listing contributions for earlier versions will still work with 2.3.1

Hi Sam

 

Welcome Back :thumbsup:

That’s true, but they all use the outdated productListingBox.

It would be nice to see a grid contribution using the jquery ui

 

Regards

field is still at the top

 

Do you know how I could get rid of these?

I did the following:

 

Removed line from stylesheet.css:

width: 90%;  /*Took 1% off of the width to prevent IE6 bug*/

 

That line was stretching my images and overriding the Small Image Width setting under Configuration/Images

 

 

Then change the following lines in stylesheet.css:

ul.column{
width: 618px;

 

To whatever width your row is going to be. I left mine the standard size and it automatically adjusted mine from 3 columns to 4. Look at the modifications done to template_top.php to see how it all works.

 

If you need to, on the stylsheet modify the width of ul.column li to whatever you need.

@@EchoGuns , thanks for the response.

I changed my width to 960px as that is the max width of the 960 grid and i don´t have the side columns and then made the rest of the boxes 10px smaller so it all fitted nice.

It starts to look like something ( sort off that is) but still needs a lot of work ;-)

I have noticed quite a lot of your posts are asking the same question, about if something works with javascript turned off. Couple of questions here:

 

Why not test yourself? This contribution is extremely easy to install, only 4 steps.

 

Also, why the big move about no javascript anyways. While your own personal preference might be to have it off, the vast majority of consumers have theirs on by default, not to mention that a large percentage of sites utilize javascript.

 

To answer your question. This contribution works with it off....

because its a pain in the arse installing a brand new oscommerce every time just to test a contribution as you don't know what the code is like, it may or may not destroy your shop, so i have to do a clean install on localhost every single time. i have about 20 oscommerce installations on my harddrive just for testing. I thought asking would save time.

 

Also, the reason why im asking about javascript is that if someone has it turned off, then how will they buy from you?

 

ive been testing live shops from big brands and some of them won't function without javascript (which is totally wrong). as your site should work regardless of whether javascript is on or off.
