Article Manager v1.0

Recommended Posts

i know how to create a new table, but when i open CREATE NEW TABLE in phpmyadmin, it gives me a lot of options which are not explained in the instructions. How many fields should each table have? One each?? also what TYPE? Do i have to name the fields?

 

i really hope someone can give me a hand> I am doing all the researching i can on different websites (including this one) and i am just STUCK.

When inside phpMyadmin, use the tab that says SQL and then paste your code into there. Then hit the go or run button.

Do i paste the ENTIRE code from the article_manager_sql readme file? I do not need to do each INSERT individually?? I enter it in the configuration table correct? not the configuration_groups table...

 

Also, it says i have to add the new tables first, don't I have to do this manually through the OPERATIONS?

 

BTW thanks so much for your quick response!!

oh yea, and one more quick one.

 

When i click the sql button, some text automatically pops up in the text field

 

SELECT * FROM `configuration` WHERE 1

 

do i leave this or write over it?

p.s. I answered ONE of my own questions. I know now that it will be added to the configuration table and NOT the configuration_groups table. I figured this out by looking at the article_manager_sql code that is given in the contribution. All of the sub-items listed in the () are in the configuration table.

Thanks..

 

but i am still trying to figure out about creating the NEW tables. What type and how many fields.

ok. i figured it out (with some help) and thought i should post if for the other newbies to sql. You DO NOT have to make the tables by hand like i though. When you copy the Article_Manager_sql.txt file and paste it into the field box that shows when your click MYSQL (in the phpmyadmin section) it will make everything for you.

 

And there should NOT be any text in that field either like i saw. That meant i was in the wrong place. I backed out and got back into phpmyadmin, chose the oscommerce database and THEN clicked SQL and entered. I must have been clicking around too much.. but its and easy way to get back to where you started

ok. everything is set up and in the admin and on the website.. But i have an error. i HOPE someone can explain what this error is:

 

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ELSE in /home/furryfam/public_html/catalog/includes/modules/article_listing.php on line 127

My new article shows up in the info box, and when i click on the category, all of the category info pops up, but the article is not there, instead there is the above quote

 

Here is my code for the article_listing.php file

I thought that maybe the }else{ code around line 127 was the culprit so i added another } to close it, and know the syntax error is gone, but now the article comes up TWICE when i click the category.

 

I really could use some help here. Thanks

I re-installed the files and the doubling of the articles is gone, but now i having an issue that seems to be a VERY VERY common one, however i TRIED the fixes that were suggested and i CAN NOT figure out what the issue is because that error will not go away.

 

I am ONLY getting this error on the ALL ARTICLES on my website, and not on the NEW ARTICLES. that one has no problems, unlike what i read about with other people who, if they had problems with one, they had problems with the other.

 

I am REALLY at my witts end. I tried ALL the fixes on here, and found an download on another website that was supposed to give me a code tohelp this and there was no change there either..

 

here is the error, i KNOW you all have seen this before..

1054 - Unknown column 'a.authors_id' in 'on clause'

 

select count(*) as total from articles a, articles_to_topics a2t left join topics_description td on a2t.topics_id = td.topics_id left join authors au on a.authors_id = au.authors_id, articles_description ad where (a.articles_date_available IS NULL or to_days(a.articles_date_available) <= to_days(now())) and a.articles_id = a2t.articles_id and a.articles_status = '1' and a.articles_id = ad.articles_id and ad.language_id = '1' and td.language_id = '1'

 

[TEP STOP]

 

here is the code for catalog/articles.php file

you are NOT NOT NOT going to believe this.. I FREAKING FIXED IT!!!!

 

I sat at the cpu for about 2 hours reading the code word by word and symbol by symbol. I was going crazy, and then i got to this odd little part of the code in catalog/articles.php

 

I WAS loosing my mind, but this little paragraph just stood out.. it said:

 

// Rigadin2: query modified for Mysql5 and added ledt join for TABLE_ARTICLES_DESCRIPTION.
//  $articles_all_query_raw = "select a.articles_id, a.articles_date_added, ad.articles_name, ad.articles_head_desc_tag, au.authors_id, au.authors_name, td.topics_id, td.topics_name from ((" . TABLE_ARTICLES . " a) left join " . TABLE_AUTHORS . " au using(authors_id)) left join " . TABLE_ARTICLES_DESCRIPTION . " ad using(articles_id), " . TABLE_ARTICLES_TO_TOPICS . " a2t left join " . TABLE_TOPICS_DESCRIPTION . " td using(topics_id) where (a.articles_date_available IS NULL or to_days(a.articles_date_available) <= to_days(now())) and a.articles_id = a2t.articles_id and a.articles_status = '1' and ad.language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "' and td.language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "' order by a.articles_date_added desc, ad.articles_name";

$articles_all_query_raw = "select a.articles_id, a.articles_date_added, ad.articles_name, ad.articles_head_desc_tag, au.authors_id, au.authors_name, td.topics_id, td.topics_name from " . TABLE_ARTICLES . " a, " . TABLE_ARTICLES_TO_TOPICS . " a2t left join " . TABLE_TOPICS_DESCRIPTION . " td on a2t.topics_id = td.topics_id left join " . TABLE_AUTHORS . " au on a.authors_id = au.authors_id, " . TABLE_ARTICLES_DESCRIPTION . " ad where (a.articles_date_available IS NULL or to_days(a.articles_date_available) <= to_days(now())) and a.articles_id = a2t.articles_id and a.articles_status = '1' and a.articles_id = ad.articles_id and ad.language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "' and td.language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "' order by a.articles_date_added desc, ad.articles_name";

 

then i realized.. The paragraph of code on the top was the correct code for the more RECENT MYSQL5 and the paragraph below was for the older one. NO WHERE In the instructions did it say to go in a delete the one you will not be using (in my case the second one for the older version of MYSQL)

 

So i deleted that second whole block of code and VIOLA - MY ARTICLES MANAGER WORKS!!!

 

well, almost.. I am still having the issue with the cross sell.. i really an VERY proud of myself because i am just LEARNING this stuff, but i feel like everything is coming along nicely.

Hi,

 

I'm new to OSCommerce and am trying to install the latest version of Article Manager on my site hosted by site5 and am having trouble. I'm not sure if this is the correct forum to post this question and I'm sorry if it isn't (If this is the case, if someone would be kind enough to let me know where to post the question, I'd be truly grateful).

 

When I load the Article_Manager_sql.txt file into the field for MySQL, I get a "Rails application failed to start properly." error message. Is this because of something I've done or not done? Or is it something I need to contact Site5 about?

 

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks :)

I got it working actually. Turns out I had to sign into my site5 account differently.

 

But now I get a "500 Internal Server Error" when I click Articles either in osCommerce's admin site or from my site itself. Any idea how to solve this?

 

To the best of my knowledge, I've followed all the steps in the articles manager readme.

you are getting the same error on both the admin side AND the user side? can you post a link to your site

 

did you check the permissions on your files? There is one file that needs open permissions that will then be deleted.. The other issue could be your server host. If you have error logs in your control panel, i would dig those up to get more specific info

you are getting the same error on both the admin side AND the user side? can you post a link to your site

 

did you check the permissions on your files? There is one file that needs open permissions that will then be deleted.. The other issue could be your server host. If you have error logs in your control panel, i would dig those up to get more specific info

 

Yeah. I just solved the problem by changing the permissions from all the files I uploaded (they were at 777) to 755. :)

 

Thanks for your help.
