In banner manager, make sure that when you insert a new banner, it is in the 468 x 50 group (this is a group name not a dimension)

ok found t contribution for it, beaty!

banner_to_language mod is a small textfile that describes exactly how to do this thing i was looking for.

 

OBS! i didnt work for me to do as the text said about

define('BANNER_GROUP_1', '468x50_english');

i had to make it "define('BANNER_GROUP_1', '468x50_eng');"

because in admin the groupnamne couldnt fit too many characters...

 

 

 

 

 

Grrrrrreat !

:D

 

 

 

 

 

banner_to_language mod

====================================

Author: Jef Allard [email protected] http://5m.ca http://www.jfallard.com

====================================

What does it do?

 

When you have multiple language setup, you may want to have banners accordingly. This little trick will make it right!

====================================

Installation (very easy):

====================================

Step 1:

 

Find the file where your banner is placed, normally in footer: includes/footer.php

 

look for this line:

 

if ($banner = tep_banner_exists('dynamic', '468x50')) {

 

Replace it with

 

if ($banner = tep_banner_exists('dynamic', BANNER_GROUP_1)) {

====================================

Step 2:

 

open catalog includes/languages/english.php and add the line:

 

define('BANNER_GROUP_1', '468x50_english');

 

repeat this step for each [language].php language file (french.php, spanish.php, etc.) and modify the trailing '468x50_[language]' accordingly

====================================

Step 3:

 

Open your admin panel and locate your Banner Manager under Tools category. Then, modify your existing banner to have it created under the new banner group name:

 

New English banner group name: 468x50_english

 

Then create your other banners accordingly (468x50_french, 468x50_spanish, etc.). Remember to create a different banner group for each language.

====================================

Step 4:

 

Repeat the process for every other banner on your site. That way, you will always have the right banner language for every page on your site.
