Help Needed!!

ISSUE:

Display shows the 'n' character in index page when categories are selected.

 

You have edited the index.php using the online file manager which has removed the \ backslashes from the code, this is a known issue with using the file manager to edit files, it is better to use an ftp program such as ws_ftp to download the file and edit it locally then ftp back to the server.

 

FIX:

To fix this issue you will need to find the 4 instances of "n"; on your index.php and change them to "\n";

 

around line #104 look for this code

while ($categories = tep_db_fetch_array($categories_query)) { 
     $rows++; 
     $cPath_new = tep_get_path($categories['categories_id']); 
     $width = (int)(100 / MAX_DISPLAY_CATEGORIES_PER_ROW) . '%'; 
     echo '                <td align="center" class="smallText" width="' . $width . '" valign="top"><a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT, $cPath_new) . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $categories['categories_image'], $categories['categories_name'], SUBCATEGORY_IMAGE_WIDTH, SUBCATEGORY_IMAGE_HEIGHT) . '<br>' . $categories['categories_name'] . '</a></td>' . "n"; 
     if ((($rows / MAX_DISPLAY_CATEGORIES_PER_ROW) == floor($rows / MAX_DISPLAY_CATEGORIES_PER_ROW)) && ($rows != $number_of_categories)) { 
       echo '              </tr>' . "n"; 
       echo '              <tr>' . "n"; 
     } 
   }

change to this

while ($categories = tep_db_fetch_array($categories_query)) { 
     $rows++; 
     $cPath_new = tep_get_path($categories['categories_id']); 
     $width = (int)(100 / MAX_DISPLAY_CATEGORIES_PER_ROW) . '%'; 
     echo '                <td align="center" class="smallText" width="' . $width . '" valign="top"><a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT, $cPath_new) . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $categories['categories_image'], $categories['categories_name'], SUBCATEGORY_IMAGE_WIDTH, SUBCATEGORY_IMAGE_HEIGHT) . '<br>' . $categories['categories_name'] . '</a></td>' . "\n"; 
     if ((($rows / MAX_DISPLAY_CATEGORIES_PER_ROW) == floor($rows / MAX_DISPLAY_CATEGORIES_PER_ROW)) && ($rows != $number_of_categories)) { 
       echo '              </tr>' . "\n"; 
       echo '              <tr>' . "\n"; 
     } 
   }

and then around line #256 look for this code

while ($filterlist = tep_db_fetch_array($filterlist_query)) { 
         $options[] = array('id' => $filterlist['id'], 'text' => $filterlist['name']); 
       } 
       echo tep_draw_pull_down_menu('filter_id', $options, (isset($HTTP_GET_VARS['filter_id']) ? $HTTP_GET_VARS['filter_id'] : ''), 'onchange="this.form.submit()"'); 
       echo '</form></td>' . "n"; 
     } 
   }

and change to this

while ($filterlist = tep_db_fetch_array($filterlist_query)) { 
         $options[] = array('id' => $filterlist['id'], 'text' => $filterlist['name']); 
       } 
       echo tep_draw_pull_down_menu('filter_id', $options, (isset($HTTP_GET_VARS['filter_id']) ? $HTTP_GET_VARS['filter_id'] : ''), 'onchange="this.form.submit()"'); 
       echo '</form></td>' . "\n"; 
     } 
   }

:D Thanks Steve. This fixed the problem right up. The actual n's were in includes/classes/boxes.php, and thanks to your guidance was able to address the problem and fix using Dreamweaver instead of Filemanager.

 

Thanks again, you have saved the day and my job !! :thumbsup:
