Adding a box to the front page of osC


Guest

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

 

I've had a quick look through the contributions but nothing looks right for me.

 

I'd like to add a box below the existing 'New products for April', to look fairly similar. Any contributions that are for the left or right columns don't apply here.

 

What I want to do is add a featured products box, to be controlled through the admin so I can put up whichever products I want.

 

I need to display the thumbnail, manufacturer, product name and price - pretty much like the existing box.

 

Any pointers or does anyone know of a contribution that does this from scratch? I'd prefer not to just modify the existing box..

Sure, there is a contribution called 'Featured Products' that will do most of that. You'll still need to alter the SQL query a bit, to pull the manufacturer in, and you'll need to alter the presentation to include those, but that's pretty straightforward, if you've got a bit of php xp.

Thanks I'll take a look into it.

 

I took a look at your site (looks good!) and I noticed you had a great feature in your 'pc_game_info.php' which I presume in a modified product_info.php page.

 

How did you do the box with details (platform, box size, rating, released) of the game and picture? This is something I have desperately been searching for - not specifically for PC games but relevant to the products I'd be selling.

 

Cheers

Chris

Pretty standard stuff really. Just wrapped some html around the regular product image. Nothing fancy.
