[CONTRIBUTION] Dropdownmenu

Recommended Posts

sorry, to elaborate on my above post, as it wasnt clear.

 

whats happening is that after selecting a manufacturer, each category is being displayed twice in the dropdown, yet only one of them actually works.

how did you get it to work? it just greys out for me

 

well, the instructions stated to miss out all of section 2 if you already have coolmenu. This isnt the case.

 

also, try just '/' in the var dropdownmenu_path

 

PS my duplicated categories was down to another contrib :D

Okay, i've still got a double top level category when selecting a specific manufacturer.

 

I've got one product linked to all categories, and all subcategories, under a specific manufacturer.

 

Ie if i select all manufacturers, all is as it should be... but if i select the specific manufacturer, then i get the top level categories duplicated in the drop down, yet one is populated, and one isnt.

 

Any ideas?

what verison of the contrib are you using? where did you downlaod it from?

 

becaused I can not make this work

 

it does work, but its not an out of the box solution.. i got it working by trial and error ! make sure all the code is installed, and fiddle with the dropdownmenu_path

please, any hints on how you got it working?

 

nope.. fraid not. I'm using BTS so had to install the mod slightly differently. On my second installation on a new shop the mod worked first time.

 

Couple of tips though..

 

leave the dropdownmenu_path set at '/'

Do ALL of the install instructions.. ignore it when it says miss out section 2 if you have coolmenu.

Is this support thread now dead and buried???

 

This forum seems to have halted on the contribution support side of things.

 

 

i still need help. I can not get this to work at all

it seems support for this has died.. you best bet would be to try the contribution which is located on the original developers own website. It is a much improved version and an easier installation. the url is a couple of pages back on one of his posts somewhere...

 

Beware though if you have a LOT of categories (500+ or something) the newever version is too slow to be useable.

Does this contribution work with CRE loaded 6.15?

 

The "advanced_search_result.php" file is quite different to the original oscommerce file.

Something is very stranger with this contribution, because i saw on his site "http://www.euskopc.com/catalog/advanced_search_result.php?osCsid=1f2d00c9e520d178f164e46ff9d9eeef&manufacturers_id=3&categories_id=478&subcategories_id=479&keywords=&inc_subcat=1&osCsid=1f2d00c9e520d178f164e46ff9d9eeef" and the contribution works very well but any other member of this forum can do it, i try contact the contribuition writer and ask to give the files are current use but he don't want give me, so i think this contribuition must be deleted from the Oscommer site because many peoples try use and gonna be frusted, the version 2.7 DOESN'T WORK.

how did you get this to work?

you need to follow the install instruction. in my website, I bring out the code in the drodownmeau code to the front page. but I change the code in the index.php, and crate another page call centerinfor.php to put the code in. but this way only work for one lang. doesn't work with more than one lang.

True , i installed version 2.6 and it works now !!!

 

what is the bug 2.7 is trying to fixes , but also make the contrib not to work anymore ?

 

 

by the way even in the new install files there is a mistake :

 

2B) in class tableBox

After around line 72 before

return $tableBox_string;

add the line

$this->table_string = $tableBox_string;

so that it looks like

if ($direct_output == true) echo $tableBox_string;

$this->table_string = $tableBox_string;

return $tableBox_string;

 

should be

2B) in class tableBox

around line 72 before

return $tableBox_string;

add the line

$this->table_string = $tableBox_string;

so that it looks like

if ($direct_output == true) echo $tableBox_string;

$this->table_string = $tableBox_string;

return $tableBox_string;
