Admin Access 22a and Newsbox 1.2 help needed please


Recommended Posts

I've been installing a few contribs this afternoon and have just come to a grinding halt - I have Admin Access 22a installed, works perfectly, and am trying to get the Newsbox contrib to display in the admin area but cannot work out what I need to do (I'm pretty new to php and osCommerce).


The scroller box kind of appears on the main index page (http://www.desk2web.co.uk/bangor) but not quite right.


Also I cannot get the admin link to display - I guess this is due to the way Admin Access displays the links once modified, so I changed my code to read:


$contents[] = array('text'  =>tep_admin_files_boxes(FILENAME_CATEGORIES, BOX_CATALOG_CATEGORIES_PRODUCTS) .
							   tep_admin_files_boxes(FILENAME_REVIEWS, BOX_CATALOG_REVIEWS) .
							   tep_admin_files_boxes(FILENAME_SPECIALS, BOX_CATALOG_SPECIALS) .


and I listed mainnews.php in the filenames.php file:


  define('FILENAME_DEFINE_MAINNEWS', 'mainnews.php');


But it doesnt work, so any advice and suggestions to help me learn would be appreciated.

Firstly it may be a good idea to see if a support thread for this exists.


Secondly, I am familiar with admin with access level so can understand what the admin/index.php page looks like with contribution links added. It really would save you time if didn't add anything to the index page because whether those URL links are put in or not, the contributions asociated with them will still work.


It would save you time trying to fix something that isn't really broken.

Upon receiving fixes and advice, too many people don't bother to post updates informing the forum of how it went. Until of course they need help again on other issues and they come running back!


Why receive the information you require in good faith for free, only to then have the attitude to ignore the people who gave it to you?


There's no harm in saying, 'Thanks, it worked'. On the contrary, it creates a better atmosphere.
