osCommerce

The e-commerce.

right column not showing


newtech

Recommended Posts

I would like it so that the right column (Specials, reviews, etc.) will show up on the store index.php page. It seems to show up on almost every page except the home page (catalog) page.

 

What do I need to do for it to show up on the store homepage?

what style is it you are looking for/using?

Here is what I want and here is what I have done for troubleshooting.

 

What I want:

I would like it so that the right column, what's new, and footer will show up on the store index.php page. It seems to show up on almost every page except the home page (index.php) page.

 

An example of a good site is on my test site:

www.thinforlife.info/oscommerce/catalog

 

The problem site (which is the one that will be live) is:

www.aplaceofhopestore.com

The right,what's news, and footer show up other places but not on homepage.

 

I also have the problem on another test site:

www.newtechnologies2000.com/store

 

But it also works on:

www.newtechnologies2000.com/oscommerce/catalog

 

TROUBLESHOOTING:

1. I have verified that the index.php is exactly the same on all sites.

 

2. I have realized the difference between the sites is that the sites that are at oscommerce/catalog (which display properly) have two things common:

a. Both use the directory of oscommerce/catalog

b. Both are version 2.2MS2-051113

 

3. So is the problem that the bad displaying sites are:

a. Both have different paths for the index.php

or

b. Both have the latest version of oscommerce

 

Does not make sense:

1. It should not matter what path the index.php is in. My understanding is that oscommerce can be installed in the root folder of the server or in any subfolders as long as it is defined. (Everything else seems to work fine so I don't see how it can be where the index.php is located).

 

2. Why would the latest version of oscommerce not allow the right column code in index.php not be displayed on the homepage but everywhere else.

 

Any ideas?

I have found the problem but have no idea for the solution.

 

The latest version of oscommerce 2.2MS2-060817 has a bug.

It will not show the right column,what's new, or footer on the homepage, regardless of what directory oscommerce is located.

 

Here is an example:

www.aplaceofhopestore.com/oscommerceold/catalog is version 2.2MS2-051113.

It displays everything properly.

 

www.aplaceofhopestore/oscommerce/catalog is version 2.2MS2-060817.

It does not display right column, etc.

 

Am I the only oscommerce user out there that wants the right column on the homepage?

 

Nobody else has caught this?

No fix out there?

 

Any ideas on how to fix.

Where do I report bugs?

The problem was that the new version I downloaded of new_products.php was bad. And of course I was installing this version on all my test sites.
