I use the Advanced Cache Control Tool and it works great but I use a superfish menu so in my work directory I have files like : categories_superfish_box-dutch.cache 
instead of categories_box_dutch.cache or something like that.

How can I change Advanced Cache Control Tool so it sees the superfish version ?

Which superfish add-on are you using? as there are a few. I just tested with the "Superfish Categories Box" add-on http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/8851, which does successfully appear in the admin "Cache Control" tool (without any changes to the "Advanced Cache Control Tool").

 

Code similar to below needs to exist in these osCommerce files for the superfish add-on you're using to work with the cache system.

 

1. catalog\includes\functions\cache.php

// Start superfish categories box
////
// Cache the categories superfish box
  function tep_cache_categories_superfish_box( $auto_expire = false, $refresh = false ) {
    global $cPath, $language;

    $cache_output = '';

    if( ( $refresh == true ) || !read_cache( $cache_output, 'categories_superfish_box-' . $language . '.cache' . $cPath, $auto_expire ) ) {
      if( !class_exists( 'bm_categories_superfish' ) ) {
        include( DIR_WS_MODULES . 'boxes/bm_categories_superfish.php' );
      }

      $bm_categories_superfish = new bm_categories_superfish();
      $cache_output = $bm_categories_superfish->getData();

      write_cache( $cache_output, 'categories_superfish_box-' . $language . '.cache' . $cPath );
    }

    return $cache_output;
  }
// End superfish categories box

2. catalog\admin\includes\application_top.php

// the following cache blocks are used in the Tools->Cache section
// ('language' in the filename is automatically replaced by available languages)
  $cache_blocks = array(array('title' => TEXT_CACHE_CATEGORIES, 'code' => 'categories', 'file' => 'categories_box-language.cache', 'multiple' => true),
                        array('title' => TEXT_CACHE_CATEGORIES_SUPERFISH, 'code' => 'categories_superfish', 'file' => 'categories_superfish_box-language.cache', 'multiple' => true),
                        array('title' => TEXT_CACHE_MANUFACTURERS, 'code' => 'manufacturers', 'file' => 'manufacturers_box-language.cache', 'multiple' => true),
                        array('title' => TEXT_CACHE_ALSO_PURCHASED, 'code' => 'also_purchased', 'file' => 'also_purchased-language.cache', 'multiple' => true)
                       );

cheers

Can we use this addon to cache a output out a custom-categories.php  fiile which outputs the nav bar in header of the store?

Your guidance on this will be really helpful, Hope I could use your wonderful addon for this too....

The Category nav bar generated can be seen on my store at http://www.radhavallabh.com/radhakrishna-store

Awaiting your respose;

That add-on is for managing existing oscommerce cache files.

 

You are probably looking for something more like this: http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/2873

Hi I went through this add-on previously but the main issue I am facing is getting it working with the complete category generation script on that file.

IT shows on how to use it with array; text and cfgqueries beautifully. But when I tried incorporating it in my category file the whole script broke.

Please if you could guide me in more detail.. it would be great

Awaiting your valuable response

Warm rgds

Hi;

I tried implementing something like below instead.. But the output file is not writing to cache- Could you please enlighten me where am I going wrong-

One more thing I am also trying to add the language id to it can you guide me also on how can that be done.

        <?php
$file = '../includes/cache/cache_custom_categories.php'; //location of cache file
$current_time = time();
$cache_last_modified = filemtime($file); //time when the cache file was last modified

if(file_exists($file) && ($current_time < strtotime('+1 month', $cache_last_modified))){ //check if cache file exists and hasn't expired yet
  include($file); //include cache file
}else{
  ob_start(); //start output buffering
?>
<?php
 /* big menu */
         include(DC_BLOCKS . 'custom_categories.php'); 
         /*big menu*/
  $fp = fopen($file, 'w'); //open cache file
  fwrite($fp, ob_get_contents()); //create new cache file
  fclose($fp); //close cache file
  ob_end_flush(); //flush output buffered
}
?>

Awaiting your valuable reply;
