NewsDesk v1.48 Support

Recommended Posts

I solved the above problem, finally. It seems that I didn't have my database information defined in /includes/configure.php. I debugged the admin side with all the fixes you listed previously, so that works great. But my site front page is all messed up now. The style sheet is not working and none of the images appear. Any idea why that might happen? Thanks.

does anyone know how to get to a page that displays all news, instead of only one category of the news?

 

I also need this. I want to show all news in a single page. I've tried something like:

 

/newsdesk_index.php?newsPath=all

 

Instead of

 

/newsdesk_index.php?newsPath=1 ,

/newsdesk_index.php?newsPath=2 ,

...

 

But it does not work. Someone has a solution for this?

 

 

Thanks in advance!

Hey There!!

 

I experience some problems with the url field.

 

When I add a link to the url field it does not display it on the newsdeks info page!

 

Any help is appreciated!

I wanted to thank everyone for there help on this. NewsDesk is exactly what I needed. I do need a little help with the formatting of the text. I was hoping someone could help me out. Any help is greatly appreciated.

 

1) Is there a way to show the complete heading title without cutting the end off?

2) Is there a way to make the summary section text not in bold type?

3) Is there a way to cut the summary section off at approx 125 characters?

 

Here is my site for reference.

Hi

 

This is a great contribution and thanks to everyone responsible for putting it together.

 

I however have a problem. With the way that we are using it, it does not work in columns. In the newsdesk_index file I need the heading to appear above the short description, then the description underneath and the date underneath that.

 

I have fiddled with the page but simply cannot get it right. If anyone has any idea on how to achieve what I need I would be hugely appreciative.

Hi guys and thanks for the great module!

 

I've installed it and works great and I was able to modify it to my needs. I've run into a problem though, that I'm not even sure that it's the modules fault. The external links always send me to the index page of my shop. Is that something to do with the module or something to do with a problem to the redirect.php?

 

Thanks!

I've just installed that contrib and I find it way too developed.... my shop is selling band's goods and doesn't has to replace the official website.

 

summary - instead of a specific field it could a SQL request to take the 100 first character followed by "..." by example

categories - just want to have some news, do news of a shop have categories

reviews of news - it's a shop not a band website ;)

sticky - a bit double use with the intro text you can type on the index.php language page.

 

would be good if for such a large contrib, there would be a better manual of how to use it.. cause I only implement the adds on, I let other people use them... and it has to be as simple as possible ;)

Error 1054 - Unknown column 'p.newsdesk_id' in 'on clause'

 

Howdy,

 

if anyone is running MySQL 5.0+ and is receiving the error above when clicking on any items listed in the news categories box, download the replacement /catalog/newsdesk_index.php file here:

First of all: thanks for the contrib. It really is what I've been looking for. I just need help with 1 detail. On the page of the article itself the date shows as below. Is there a way to improve the look of this, or even just remove it at all? I would like to extend the red border of the tabel to the complete width of the page.

 

Thanks so much!

Hi there;

 

I'm hoping there is still support for this contrib as I'd really like to get this installed on my site.

Please bear with me as I'm still fairly new to this stuff lol.

I just installed everything and went onto my site http://www.ladykdelights.com and am getting this

in the right column:

 

1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'LATEST_DISPLAY_NEWSDESK_NEWS' at line 4

 

select p.newsdesk_id, pd.language_id, pd.newsdesk_article_name, pd.newsdesk_article_description, pd.newsdesk_article_shorttext, pd.newsdesk_article_url, pd.newsdesk_article_url_name, p.newsdesk_image, p.newsdesk_date_added, p.newsdesk_last_modified, p.newsdesk_date_available, p.newsdesk_status from newsdesk p, newsdesk_description pd WHERE pd.newsdesk_id = p.newsdesk_id and pd.language_id = "1" and newsdesk_status = 1 ORDER BY newsdesk_date_added DESC LIMIT LATEST_DISPLAY_NEWSDESK_NEWS

 

[TEP STOP]

 

 

I was wondering how I can fix this. I also have a really dumb question for the install in the SQL - After the Create Table

code there is following line that says " Dumping data for table .... " Do I need to put that coding into the SQL also or is that

more for removing the tables for the Newsdesk?

Things look ok in the Admin area from what I can tell, it's just on the main site itself. Can anyone please help?

 

Thanks,

Karen

OK .... I added the other SQL coding that I wasn't sure about and everything seems good to go. I'm slowly figuring out how to use the contrib and it's very cool. Now ... for some tweaking (hoping someone can help) Please follow this link :

 

http://www.ladykdelights.com/newsdesk_inde...f8e28e996c05e32

 

I would like to remove the 2 Linkshare boxes at the top of the page. Is there a place where I can comment these out? I really have no use for them at the moment for my site.

Also, I was wondering how I can remove or comment out the 3 News Article pictures. I've been playing around in the Admin for this but still can't hide them.

This question I should have the answer to, but it's been soooo long since I've done it ..... How can I rename the box heading from New Categories to simply News Desk?

 

Hope someone can help and thanks in advance,

Karen

I have installed 1.49 and everything seems to work great but when I go to admin and click on Article management I get the following error...

 

Parse error: parse error, unexpected '{' in /home/content/d/e/a/dealweasels/html/admin/newsdesk.php on line 16

 

This is the code

 

16 try {

17 if (file_exists($filename)) unlink($filename);

18 }

19 catch(Exception $e)

20 {

21 $filename='';

22 }

 

 

 

Everything else in admin works fine except for this

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated

I installed 1.49 locally and have found that when you enter a review and then go to the page that lists them all the continue button does not work. I have also found that some of the back buttons do not take me back to where I came from. I have also found that sometimes when you view a news desk item the url has the category in it, other times the same page does not have it. There are also some pages that have && after the url. Is this standard for the contribution or just my install?

 

Thanks. :)

If you guide your customers to sebscribe to the RSS feed from the button in the side box from your site.

They will be notified each time you post an article.

 

At the moment the NewsDesk is not connected to the product notifications as yet!
