Article Manager v1.0

Recommended Posts

I have installed Article Manager v1.5 and there are no error messages but there is nothing showing in the admin section for Article Manager. I have double-checked everything and I haven't made any mistakes with the install, can anyone please help?

 

Regards,

Hi Guys

 

I have installed the contribution with the latest updates but im still having a problem.

 

I can't see any of the articles in my site.

 

I can add articles, authors & topics no problem in my admin section. I have also checked and all the info is in the database but it doesn't want to display on the web site.

 

Im using mySql5 and i have loaded the fixed files but still no luck.

 

Any ideas?

Have you placed your articles inside topics? Articles that don't belong to any topic will not be shown. Do you have infoboxes for articles and authors in one of your column?


STS v4.5 SP5 is out, and check the STS Power Pack contribution too!

New thumbnailer using phpThumb: oscThumb. Works great.

Hi,

 

I have installed Article Manager 1.5 with admin and made the changes for mySQL 5 to fix some of the mistakes.

 

I now can NOT get the Cross-Sell Articles to Products in admin (page articles_xsell.php ) to work.

 

It shows the table, I click on Add / Remove by the article find which ones I want then click on the

Click here to sort the products associated with this article.

Note: this needs to be done every time a product is added or deleted.

 

And no products show up.

 

Any advise and guidence to get this to work would be great :)

 

Thank you for your time

ok, I have found out that the data is not being written to the articles_xsell table as when I enter data in that table manually, it then will show articles linked.

 

Can someone help me to get this code to work?

I have a somehwat-similar issue - the table gets updated however the only way I can delete the the links is to remove them from database... Also every time I browse the product category, try add/remove a new product... looks like it doubles the amount of product links. Has anyone experienced the similar behavior?

 

- Cheers,

Georgee

New code for use with dynamic_sitemap.php

 

Simply add this to catalog/dynamic_sitemap.php where ever you want it to appear.

 

 

<?php

//ARTICLE MANAGER START

echo '<ul class="sitemap">';

echo '<li><a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_ARTICLES, '',

 

'NONSSL') . '">' . BOX_ALL_ARTICLES . '</a></li>' . "";

$topics_query = tep_db_query("select t.topics_id, td.topics_name, t.parent_id from " .

 

TABLE_TOPICS . " t, " . TABLE_TOPICS_DESCRIPTION . " td where t.parent_id = '" . (int)

 

$topic_links[$i] . "' and t.topics_id = td.topics_id and td.language_id = '" . (int)

 

$languages_id . "' order by sort_order, td.topics_name");

if (tep_db_num_rows($topics_query) > 0) {

$row = 0;

while ($topics = tep_db_fetch_array($topics_query)) {

$row++;

echo '<li><a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_ARTICLES, 'topics_id=' . $topics

 

['topics_id']) . '">' . $topics['topics_name'] . '</a></li>' . "";

}

}

echo '</ul>';

//ARTICLE MANAGER END

?>

Same problem here, install went fine, everything in the admin works, I create an article and on the front page it shows all the links, authors etc., but when I click on them it will not show the article. It will show everything else (such as top and bottom and left and right columns but just white space where the article is supposed to be.) Any ideas for this?

Tell a Friend feature

 

I have installed the Tell a Friend for Non-Product Contrib. Does anyone else have this contrib installed and edited the php file so that it will work with the Article Manager Tell a Friend?

 

If so, can ypu post the edits that you did to make both contribs work?

 

Any answer on this?

 

I'm trying to figure this out now.

If you already have please let me know.

I have moved on from oscommerce to magento and no longer monitoring this site.

ok - here's my attempt at trying to make the Articles Manager menu the same as the dynamenu. i'v replaced all category instances with topic instances.

 

it works, sorta..... its displaying both menu's - but the menu behaviour is completely whack now.

 

example - if i click on an Article category - it opens up - but it also opens up the Products category, most categories on either wont open at all - so it seems like its opening up the categories with same ID - even though they use different id names in both files.

 

can anyone please help me with this - tell me what i am doing wrong?

 

pls - i'm not a developer - but i am trying... :blush:

I hope someone can help me with something. I installed Articles v1.5_1 today. And any page that has anything to do with articles is wreaking havoc with my infoboxes in column_left.php. I don't use column_right.

 

This is what the shopping cart and categories boxes look like in every other page of my website.

 

normalbox.gif

 

When I go to mysite.com/articles.php, it's centering the text in every single one of my infoboxes, like this:

 

articlesbox.gif

 

If you notice, it's also moving the breadcrumb trail in the header navigation to the center, as well. ???

 

And I don't know what that funky little black line is next to the end of the header navigation bar.

 

What file is doing this and how do I fix it? I have this installed in a test site, as well, and I did create an article there and the article results are all centered onscreen, too. Looks like this thing is just...centering everything, period. How to correct it?

Hi,

as far as i can remember, I had similar issue which I fixed by replacing the following on every php file that comes with the articles package

 

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

 

with

 

<!doctype html public "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

 

You can see it in action: http://www.petsready.com

 

Cheers,

George

Thank You very much, George!

 

Actually, I've been messing around with catalog>stylesheet.css and managed to straighten out my infoboxes and the header navigation bar by inserting a simple little:

 

text-align: left;

 

into .infoboxContents and TR.headernavigation

 

I just did what you suggested for one file, catalog>articles.php and now everything is appearing the way I want it to on that page. It's late and I'm tired, but I will make that edit to all of those new files tomorrow.

 

I've been sitting here thinking....I really shouldn't HAVE to do this, should I? Make edits in the stylesheet? I never saw anything like this happen before with the other contribs I've installed. No contrib should be reorganizing the way my infoboxes and my header navigation appear onscreen, should they? Nothing ever did before this.

 

I dunno...I don't like this business of files in the contrib being linked to some other website. I've never seen anything like it. Thank You again for posting!

Um.. hope you figured it out by now.. but did you actually add that article to a topic? if its outside a topic.. I dont think it will appear anywhere but the admin console

 

 

Cheers,

George

 

Same problem here, install went fine, everything in the admin works, I create an article and on the front page it shows all the links, authors etc., but when I click on them it will not show the article. It will show everything else (such as top and bottom and left and right columns but just white space where the article is supposed to be.) Any ideas for this?

Anyone has an infoblock which would list latest articles from predefined topics with a short description for each article?

i wonder why we dont have a infobox with a tree menu of topic and articles

 

also i dont understand why we dont make a hack of the categories/products way of working in osc

and jsut duplicate all php file and tables renaming the word and variable of categories end products to topices and articles for instance

then all infobox would be usable jsut changing the same way the call to tables and variable names

I haven't created any new articles in my 'live' site, yet. I was too busy trying to figure out what was going on with the text formatting problem here, there and everywhere.

 

I did install this in my 'test' site today, and my article...underneath a created topic, is showing just fine. Just...the formatting issue.

 

When I look at this:

 

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

 

Is that actually linking my website to something else?

Hi Guys,

 

Just wondering how the best way to go about changing the article listing, at the minute it displays as such:

 

Article Name by: Article Author Topic: My Topics

 

I was wondering if anyone has tackled article manager to make it look similar to say a knowledge base where the topic categories are listed with the number of articles in brackets and couple of articles underneath the topic name.

 

Maybe this already works out of the box and I am just blind lol

i saw someone asking for the menu in Tree style - well - i'm trying to get it to work DynaMenu style - i'v adapted the DynaMenu code to pull the topics navigation - and it works - it pulls it out - builds it right - but when you click on the topic link it does not open up the topic.

i dont know how to get it to work - i'm not a developer - i tried though.... maybe someone else can get it to work?

phalen for the dynameny box :

 

- the name of topic are well shown

but as for the link if it can give some clue the link for the same topic in old menu box and dynamenu are really not hte sames:

 

 

i did a comparaison of the categories dynamenu code and your code and all seems logical except that categories use the index.php file that as specific functions within

taht is maybe not the case of article_info.php

 

hope it can give you ideas :blush:

 

if found the line that make a call to the index instead of the article_info

 

$output .= str_repeat(".", $level+$lvl_adjust).'|'.$val.'|'.tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT, $tPath_new).'|'.$this_title.'|'.$menu_icon_file.'|'.$this_selected.'|'.$this_expanded."\

n";

 

should be :

$output .= str_repeat(".", $level+$lvl_adjust).'|'.$val.'|'.tep_href_link('article_info.php', $tPath_new).'|'.$this_title.'|'.$menu_icon_file.'|'.$this_selected.'|'.$this_expanded."\n";

ok - it works - i just had to change the article_info.php to articles.php - now when i click on the link it pulls the right page & info.

 

just the two menu's on the same page dont work well together.

 

you cant open the subs when both the categories & articles menu is on the same page. it almost functions like the standard osc navigation when both are running.

 

on its own, it works 100% - but running with categories dynamenu it doesnt.

 

any suggestions?

 

thanks azer - i'll give it a try and see if it works! really appreciate the help!

 

if this works i'll post the code on the contributions page with kudo's to u & ofcourse DynaMenu folks!
