does anyone know what the little tab in the top left of the info boxes is called in the stylesheet?

if you change the colour of the info box it leaves a little tap the origianl colour. I could use a little trial and error to find it but thought i'd try asking first

 

 

You will find the answer by reading the very first page of this tread.

Does any one know how to do the following, I've searched everything.

 

Basically it's a replica of the Categories/subcategories box, but I want a drop down on the catalog page:

 

Find your solution -> Drop down list of Categories (selection filters to the category chosen -> drop down list of sub categories (again products displayed are filtered on this - possibly going down to attribute level.

 

It's essentially a different way for a customer to find the product they need.

 

Thanks

Hi Nick

 

I have a problem with my webite design, it looks perfect when it is in english but in arabic

it looks so bad because of the right column , it should be in the left not in the right as in the english language

and the quick find box looks too bad

 

THis is the url of the website in English

http://ex2.drbeautycompany.com/index.php?language=en

 

This is the url in the Arabic language

http://ex2.drbeautycompany.com/index.php?language=Ar

 

How to edit the design in the arabic section only? i do not want to edit the stylesheet because it will change the design in the english section also

 

I think the problem appears because the arabic language is from right to left not from left to right

 

Thanks

This is a question which you should ask in a separate support tread. Maybe other with expirience with using Arbic language and osCommerce can help you.

I tried that but this puts it in the right hand column when I want it in the main body, also as I have InfoBox Admin it didn't do anything after installing :(

 

Any other suggestions?

 

Many thanks

To make it clearer what I'm looking for, essentially I'm looking for something similar to this:

http://www.aveda.co.uk/templates/products2...GORY_ID=CAT8233

 

See the drop down box - find a product that suits your needs.

 

Thanks

That will require custom coding...so you will have to program it yourself or if you can't then hire someone to do it for you.

Thanks for the confirmation that I'm not missing a contribution, much appreciated - even if that would have been my preferred answer!

You can remove languages you don't use/need in your admin under: Localization >> Languages

Thanks Nick, sincerely, this thread do give me a big help. I did see some questions on this thread about the admin setting, and the Localization is the part i have not touched before, i think i should spend half of day to take a closer look to the admin section. By the way, i have reached Page 50 now.:-)

i have looked in the 'new_products.php' for quite sum time, still havne't been able to get what im lookin for :S

if yo uwant to see what im talkin about, visit www.koretek.ca and check out the new products table at the bottom of the page. The items have a description, but they aren't displayed and im thinkin because either the text is too big or the table cells are too small. What do you think i should do?

Check the code both for displaying the text and the code for truncating the text lenght.

hey thanks, i sorta fixed it. The thing is, i got the description to show a bit (about 115 characters i think..thats the value i inputed anyhow)...but it still doesn't show the item name! which is very important. not only that but the prices displayed aren't aligned with eachother perfectly. The higher value number i input for allowing the description to be showed, the more offset the price is in alignment. you fix 1 problem and u just stumble onto another :S...i luv how the world turns..:S

Its just to check your code, besides the php its just html and can be adjusted using ordinary html defines.

How do I display a grpahi inside a box? I have tried 2 ways to display a gif in my Payment options box. The first is to directly link to the .gif and the other ist to declare the gif in the language files

define ('BOX_INFORMATION_PAYMENT', 'payments.gif');

. Neither works, they only show the text "payment.gif"

My box file looks like this:

<!-- information //-->
	  <tr>
		<td>
<?php
 $info_box_contents = array();
 $info_box_contents[] = array('text' => BOX_HEADING_PAYMENT);

 new InformationBoxHeading($info_box_contents, false, false);

 $info_box_contents = array();
 $info_box_contents[] = array('text' =>	'<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_WURMFARM_FAQ) . '">' . BOX_INFORMATION_PAYMENT . '</a><br>' .
'<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_ANGELKOEDER) . '">' . payments.gif  . '</a><br>' .
'<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_SOMETHING_ELSE) . '">' . SOMETHING_ELSE  . '</a>');

 new MyPagesBox($info_box_contents);
?>
		</td>
	  </tr>
<!-- information_eof //-->

 

How do I display a gif there? It doesnt matter which, as its an international gif, so no language association is necessary...
