Go and get the rss files from here

http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/934

Then upload them to your catalog root folder

Do not forget to change the URL's to your own in the rss.php file

 

Get the file catalog includes/boxes/newsdesk_latest.php

 

find near the bottom

new contentBox($info_box_contents);

ADD Below

echo '<div align="right"><a href="rss.php" target="_blank"><img src="images/rss.png" alt="RSS Feeds" border="0"></a></div>';

 

To look like this

new contentBox($info_box_contents);

echo '<div align="right"><a href="rss.php" target="_blank"><img src="images/rss.png" alt="RSS Feeds" border="0"></a></div>';

 

And download the image rss from a google image search for "rss" and copy it to your image folder.

 

you are done

 

Regards

Andrew

I think I am confused

 

What this RSS is?

 

I uploaded rss.php and rss.xml stylesheet files in catalog/

I added that link in newsdesk_latest.php, but when I click RSS feed this appears: http://gbn.ge/rss.php

 

I want my store customer to be notified to his/her e-mail each time as new news item is inserted in store. Does this RSS do this?

 

 

thanks

Try removing the Development testing area content from the top of the rss.php file.

It is not posible to subscribe to the rss feed notification within osC at present.

The only way for your existing customers to be notified will be to subscribe to the rss feed directly from the rss.php.

This is how your rss feed should look RSS.

If you view the link in FireFox they have a rss manager built in.

Ah I understand, so it is not what I thought :(

 

nevertheless newsdesk is great contribution

 

there is also contribution: catnotification, which notifies client if there is inserted new product in store,

 

I cannot remake this contribution to fit newsdesk, because it is based products categories box, and to remake for newsdesk categories box will be difficult for me

 

if anyone will do will be just great

 

thanks

hello,

I have 2 litlle things I would like to do but can't really figure out how to do it...

 

in the admin section, when you try to search a news, it only looks throught the titles... how can I search also in the summary and text section...looks like I have to use newsdesk_article_shorttext but i can't figure it out....

 

almost the same thing. in catalogue section, when I do a search, it doesn't look out in the news...

 

an idea?

If you only want 1 banner on your site, you should put

<?php
 if ($banner = tep_banner_exists('dynamic', '468x50')) {
?>
<br>
<table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
 <tr>
<td align="center"><?php echo tep_display_banner('static', $banner); ?></td>
 </tr>
</table>
<?php
 }
?>

were ever you want in your newsdesk section... that would make it useable throught the admin section...

for the admin search I'm stuck

 

I guess the part that needs to be moded is:

$categories_query = tep_db_query("select c.categories_id, cd.categories_name, c.categories_image, c.parent_id, c.sort_order, c.date_added, c.last_modified, c.catagory_status from " . TABLE_NEWSDESK_CATEGORIES . " c, " . TABLE_NEWSDESK_CATEGORIES_DESCRIPTION . " cd where c.categories_id = cd.categories_id and cd.language_id = '" . $languages_id . "' and cd.categories_name like '%" . $HTTP_GET_VARS['search'] . "%' order by c.sort_order, cd.categories_name");	
} else {
$categories_query = tep_db_query("select c.categories_id, cd.categories_name, c.categories_image, c.parent_id, c.sort_order, c.date_added, c.last_modified, c.catagory_status from " . TABLE_NEWSDESK_CATEGORIES . " c, " . TABLE_NEWSDESK_CATEGORIES_DESCRIPTION . " cd where c.parent_id = '" . $current_category_id . "' and c.categories_id = cd.categories_id and cd.language_id = '" . $languages_id . "' order by c.sort_order, cd.categories_name");}

 

I have tried this:

$categories_query = tep_db_query("select c.newsdesk_id, cd.categories_name, c.language_id, c.newsdesk_article_name, c.newsdesk_article_description, c.newsdesk_article_shorttext from " . TABLE_NEWSDESK_CATEGORIES . " c, " . TABLE_NEWSDESK_DESCRIPTION . " cd where cd.language_id = '" . $languages_id . "' and cd.categories_name like '%" . $HTTP_GET_VARS['search'] . "%' or cd.newsdesk_article_name like '%" . $HTTP_GET_VARS['search'] . "%' or cd.newsdesk_article_description like '%" . $HTTP_GET_VARS['search'] . "%' or cd.newsdesk_article_shorttext like '%" . $HTTP_GET_VARS['search'] . "% order by c.sort_order, cd.categories_name");

 

I'm not far I think but can't get it yet...

 

if anyone has allready worked on it...

$categories_query = tep_db_query("select cd.newsdesk_id, cd.language_id, cd.newsdesk_article_name, cd.newsdesk_article_description, cd.newsdesk_article_shorttext from " . TABLE_NEWSDESK_CATEGORIES . " c, " . TABLE_NEWSDESK_DESCRIPTION . " cd where cd.language_id = '" . $languages_id . "' and cd.newsdesk_article_description or cd.newsdesk_article_shorttext like '%" . $HTTP_GET_VARS['search'] .

haha

 

I did it very easily

 

change FILENAME_SEARCH_RESULT

 

by

 

FILENAME_NEWSDESK_SEARCH_RESULT

hum...could you be a bit clearer, because FILENAME_SEARCH_RESULT and FILENAME_NEWSDESK_SEARCH_RESULT don't exist in oscommerce nor in newsdesk....

 

but there is a FILENAME_ADVANCED_SEARCH_RESULT ...

I seem to have a probleme with the search box... when the news are not in a categorie folder, the search box doesn't look through them.

and when I don't type anything in the search box, a blank page whis an error apears.

 

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at c:\easyphp\www\****\includes\languages\french\newsdesk_search_result.php:19) in c:\easyphp\www\****\includes\functions\general.php on line 33
